There is an entire section dedicated to medicine on TSR, including sub-forums for applicants, current medical students and doctors. It’s the only forum to have such special treatment!

Yeah but I asked a question based on rhoton's impact on neurosurgery but I don't think a lot of people on here know about it and also one of the volunteer team helpers moved it because the medicine section was mainly for help getting into medicine not for actual questions

That's likely just because you're asking a pretty specific question with quite an extensive answer. It can take time to get questions like that answered because you need to find someone who a) knows the answer and b) can be bothered telling you. I can't think of any forum with more medicine students than TSR.

Thank you
I was just asking because when I asked they moved it out of the medicine forum so I weren't sure if I was asking the right place

You can ask academic medical questions - but your question is just so niche. I'd imagine you'd need to be a specific qualified neurosurgeon to know much about this (and neurosurgery is a very small specialty) and even then, typically a doctor learns what they need to know for current practice, not the history of it and who was involved. I certainly have no idea who discovered any of the current treatments I prescribe in cancer care.

Honestly I wouldn't hold my breath for an answer to that one!

Just to clarify - I moved it because it seemed to be pretty science based, not because it didn't have anything at all to do with medicine.
The medicine forums are usually used for general chat about applying to medicine and being a med student/doctor, and questions about science or the course content (like "why does omeprazole stop acid production" or "explain why AZT is an antiviral") we usually move into the science forums because they're really about science and putting it there gets a wider range of responses. If I misunderstood the question we can get it moved back.

As said though I suspect that it's just a really specific question. Just asking on TSR is unlikely to help much, you might need to do your own research or ask one of your course tutors.

This isn't my sphere at all but I must say that this sounds awfully advanced as a subject of study, given that you are only in Year 12!

Before I realised that you were only in the Sixth Form, I'd spent a few minutes looking around for suitable academic papers for you; I saw one or two, but I think that they could be difficult for you to access, as you would very likely need to have a University Log-In.

You will find when you get to Uni that your library will have online access to a lot of journals and so on.

I was going to suggest something like this as a useful source, but I don't think that you will be able to access it.

https://thejns.org/view/journals/j-n...icle-p1331.xml

My worry too is that they might be difficult to grapple with at school level.

Is your teacher OK with the subject you have chosen?

I am worried that all the best sources are not going to be available without a Uni Log-In.

PS I've been able to access the paper linked above myself using my Uni Log-In and it is very interesting.

Its open access.

And if it wasn't, well you definitely shouldn't use an illegal site to access it like SciHub. It's very easy, though you might have to use Tor as the browser, but it'd be theft of intellectual property that the publishers got for free so... very immoral. Definitely not.

Curiosity is getting the better of me ........

How did you come to choose to do your EPQ on such an extraordinary subject?

Does your EPQ have a title?

Well it's only been the past year or so that I've started to think about medicine seriously as my family's always pushed me towards engineering so I took my A levels based on engineering which was a big mistake so I'm hoping it will look good on my uni app. But also not to sound like a psychopath or anything but the brain is just fascinating, like it's made of so many intricate structures which if messed with can completely change someones attitude and it controls everything you do and I would like to maybe work in neurology or something. So it just fits.

I still have 6 months to perfect it but I'm looking to title it
'To what extent did Rhoton's work on microsurgical neuroanatomy impact on neurosurgery'
but nothings set yet.

If you have any ideas or anything I could miss please let me know i'd really appreciate it
