    for the last question, i wrote stuff like

    no transmission of action potential, no saltatory conduction, no electrical insulation.

    is that right??
    yeah yeah

    Wow that paper was lovely. I sort of had a brain freeze half way through the endotherm question, as I just couldn't think of anymore things other than vasoconstriction, shivering and erector pili muscles causing the hair to stand on end. I think I then spoke about mammals finding shelter, huddling together to reduce surface area to volume ratio and that humans wear more clothes when it's cold, but that was waffling at it's extreme. (Doubt if any of those behaviour points are valid...?) :P Other than that, it was relatively straight forward thank god...

    I didn't think it was as bad as the January paper...
    I didn't like the steroids question, or the one about photorespiration, and I'm not quite sure what they were expecting us to write on the last page.
    Oh and why does cellulose not have an effect on the blood glucose concentrations but starch does?

    I can wave goodbye to any hopes of an A* :'(
    cellulose consisto of b-glucose which cannot be broken down, however starch contains alpha glucose which can be broken down to glucose.

    Can't see myself getting higher than 50/60 on this paper. Messed up the ornithine cycle question, photorespiration question and a couple of others.

    i said it damaged the sensory neurone responsible for touch sensation, so no action potential generated(damaged sodium ion channels)so no impulse travels to the central nervous system hence no sensation.

    I thought the paper was much better than the January one, I actually thought the examiner was too nice.
