    We did four stations (1.5 hours each), one of them was respiratory examinations.
    Ah, that makes more sense.

    Even if it was a waste of time, it'd got to be better than a day of lectures, no?

    Am I right in thinking that cholinergic receptors are split into nicotinic (ionotropic?) and muscarinic (metabotropic?).


    So a 'ligand-gated ion channel receptor' is synonymous with 'ionotropic receptor'?
    Correct on both fronts.

    Well, I actually quite enjoyed it (Onychophagia was saying he didn't). It was nice to have a bit of a change from the pure science, although I'm quite enjoying that too now (though still hopeless at it!).

    Thank you (: I'd rep you if I could but I'm being told I must rep others before I can again! I think I'm getting my head over it now, I shall try and write it all down to get it straight in my mind.

    I don't think 'Nail biting' is a particularly feminine name, but I've certainly made the same mistake with many other members!

    Right, thanks for the clarification! So there are ionotropic receptors and metabotropic receptors (the main divisions?) )
    dependents what you mean by main divisions, there are lots of receptors that aren't GPCRs/ionotropic (tyrosine kinases, guanylyl cyclase linked, serine-threonine kinases... etc etc)

    The two main divisions are metabotropic and ionotropic.

    Tyrosine kinase would e.g. be under the metabotropic

    This is obviously an issue without a "right" or "wrong" answer.

    It's going to be down to opinion.

    But mine would be is, whilst your considered such that you shouldn't partake in normal society, nor should you have any bearing on the daily running of the country.

    Again it's subjective and there are arguments on both sides.

    Maybe you're just ahead of your time
    Legal human rights aren't a matter of opinion - there are definate rights and wrongs.

    For instance, we don't ritually beat prisoners, no matter how many people have the opinion that such a thing is a good idea for those who break the law.

    Lesson learnt. Never miss sportsnight for anything PDS related :p:

    I just get a nice lie-in on thursdays. It'd be rude NOT to go to sportsnight. It's quite bad that one of my biggest achievements of this year is my 100% sportsnight attendance record. Something to say when I run for captain at the AGM.
    A 100% record is definitely something to be proud of. I was part of that elite group up until Wednesday; I can't believe I gave it up. :cry:

    Legal Human Rights, as per the ECHR we signed up to, put into our own legislation in 1998 and clarified in subsequent law cases.

    Just you wait.
    Oh, I know lol. It's only going to get worse! But at least I'll be a doctor and get paid for that **** :p:.

    It's small consolation, I know... but better than no consolation.

    I know, I know, you're going to argue about accountability.

    Bah, leave me alone and let me sulk :p:.
