I have never heard proper used and I have only not done the lower leg and intrinsic muscles of the hand
It's an English word haha!

Like I dunno, London Transport covers more land than just that designated as London proper...

(Poor example, but here I'm basically saying that TfL covers more than just central london, it goes out to watford and so on...)

Maybe someone else can explain better but it is a real word hehe

I always thought of 'proper' as the main bit before an artery branches off - sort of like hepatic artery proper etc.

But what do I know, our anatomy teaching here clearly fails!

The hepatic artery proper is a branch off the common, no?

That's what I thought - didn't think they were synonymous.

EDIT: Just checked on WIKI and they're not.

It's the use of it as in everyday (well well-spoken everyday) English.

So my guess is that you're talking about one of the coronary arteries right?
The blah proper is it in its full self in that case, before it branches off into e.g. Left anterior descending etc.
Hah! How do you still remember that line from D&P? Impressive! Yes it is the coronary arteries. I understand what you're saying, and it makes sense, but I've also heard it used in other contexts such as the 'embryo proper'. As the embryo doesn't really 'branch off' (unless talking about the main trunk perhaps?), what would it mean in this instance?

As the old joke goes.

BL is famous for it's lack of anatomy knowledge, that might even have been true as recently as three or four years. But, you have pretty good teaching now and most BL students, those that will graduate in 2012 onwards, have a good anatomy knowledge.

Ahh yes of course. Apparently consultants on firms are saying our anatomy knowledge has increased based on previous years. But yeah, to be expected really - we have loads of anatomy teaching in first year!

In other news, decided I will apply for my iBSc this year - really really interested in Medical Education - that's the one I'm going for.

Second choice might be either Experimental Pathology or Infection and Immunity. Not sure yet.

Now to get cracking on the 'personal statement'. :work:

Finished revising for tomorrow's exam. My technique for this one has been to get bang on top of 2/3 of it, and then try and get a solid enough foundation in the final third. We shall see if that pays off.

I swear the iBSc PS is harder to write than the initial medicine one :rolleyes: Are you including non-academic stuff like extracurricular activities, or is it purely subject based?? (I'm applying for Biomedical Engineering at Barts).

SSC library project should definitely start today. Have to decide what to write about "Imaging the Brain". Anyone know any interesting CNS conditions where imaging for diagnosis or understanding could really be improved?

Not mainstream - but CJD, imaging is still pretty vague for that - althought part of it comes down to the few numbers of cases actually available.
