    Yeah, it's recommended to update the bibliography as you go, and save often. If you try to do too many at once, it throws a fit. I'll also save, close and re-open Word from time to time as it can get buggy after a while and crash inexplicably.
    No I meant don't keep updating and changing the bibliography, make the bibliography at the end. Thats what I did wrong :/ kept changing my references around and then that changed the bibliography = utter mess. Oh definitely keep saving your work, I hate it when you close Microsoft Word and then it gives you an error message saying 'any work you completed might be lost'. I hate writing essays. Medical school has completely ruined any ability I had.

    EndNote is your friend.

    Just fixes your referencing for you*

    Do mean here that you're required to be aware that nicotinic ACh receptors have different subunits? Or that you need to know the subunit concoctions of them (i.e., (α4)3(β2)2)?


    If it's the latter... :rofl:
    Just the different subunit types and what binds to what subunit etc. If they ever tried to make us learn the concoctions are I'd swiftly concede defeat with medicine.

    Have realised that I have spent the last 7 weeks or so almost solely doing gastro, only 5 weeks left of this rotation and still have endo, renal and urology to cover. Plus I can't be arsed to do my SSC.

    by which do you mean knowing the drugs which offer (some degree of)* subtype selectivity? e.g. hexamethonium on Nn vs suxamethonium on Nm?

    I got told I would fail 2nd year if I didn't stop rowing.

    I was 1% off a first and actually got a first in the subject of the tutor who told me that. :p:

    Shame that my crew really achieved very little beyond liver damage and social embarassment that year...

    Quick question about referencing:

    Part of the PBL write-up I have to describe the anatomy of the skin... I'll reference the image i'll use but do I need to reference the descriptions of the various layers?

    I'm guessing not but thought it'd be best to check just in case..

    I'm sure there's some limit related to how much glucose you can tolerate... Surely it's possible to completely overwhelm your pancreas if you really tried?

    Sounds like a challenge if I've ever heard one.

    Starting to get stressed because I've done literally no work and everyone's studying their butts off - I'm in first year, by the way.

    Just wanted to tell someone :P If I told family, they'd be all disappointed /Asian. If I told uni peeps, they'd think I'm lying /typical_medschool_crap.

    Lethal dosage of chocolate = 22lb.

    Stuff like nicotinic ACh receptor has 5 subunits (2 alpha etc) and ACh binds to alpha subunits and induces allosteric change etc. We need to know about a few channel inhibitors like curare and their mechanisms. Fortunately, there's no pharmacology until next year.
