WHOA!!! What!!?? :eek: :eek: :eek:

Right, in conclusion (from the other thread we were chatting from) - I say IB's are MUCH harder than A-Levels! - even at A2 I haven't learnt all that stuff - neither do I need to, thank God!

Neurology - I always get the feeling that I SHOULD like it just cus I'd be doing it at uni when in fact I really have no idea what Neurology is like :p: I just know I like the brain and psychology! We never got taught Neurology cus Ms Johnson, Bio teacher responsible for that section, never even said anything in the lessons, just gave us a load of notes and past papers :rolleyes: which is why when we come to Neurology or Pharmacology in Chemistry and doc says the biologists should already know this, we all simply grin and say, yeh, Ms Johnson never taught us it... :rolleyes:

How on earth is the cardiovascular system even remotely interesting!? :eek: Yeh, I don't like the study of: blood vessels, blood and the heart - unfortunately there's no escaping those in fact I don't like a large chunk of physiology cus it only tells you this does that, rather than why. Yeh none of the workings of any organs interests me... :rolleyes: Except anything on the head or in it :p:

I remember in year 7 we were told to research into one of any organs we wanted to - and I was gonna do the brain, actually - but I wasn't sure if the brain was an organ or not so I did the eye instead... so you see, I've liked the brain for a long time - just never found out about it :p:

I absolutely adore the brain. But I love the cardiovascular system almost equally. I don’t know, somehow they have always fascinated me…and if you want to know about the why bits, well that’s what medicine is for I suppose. It might as well be renamed biology explained – well at least some bits of it. Pharmacology is fun, but I am totally into neurotransmitters and inhibitors and things like that… probably because those were the only bits we learnt. Another thing I find vastly interesting is the liver and kidney…homeostatic organs. I did this Nuffield bursary project on allograft transplantation, and it was fun (well if you consider 6 weeks of summer to have gone for research fun, then it was! but i enjoyed it) Oooppps sorry I rant on a bit about organs and some other things I am a BIT passionate about.

Our biology teacher, Mr Allwood – think he is still scared of me . My friend’s sister got told off by him last week for making too much noise, and she is in year 8. Hehe, and she apparently said – ‘sir, I know Rai’. I laughed for a while.

And about finding out about the brain, well that is exactly why you chose Neuroscience!!!

Hehehehehe Awwwww shame - why is Mr Allwood scared of you?

Yeh kidney and liver are two other organs I don't like........ :rolleyes: yeh my Biology course has a God-given talent at putting people off. It's just boring - well I suppose not "boring" cus I wouldn't mind learning about it etc, but it's dull. Much like Chemistry, except Physical Chemistry is not only dull but annoying. Lol why "but" when talking about Pharmacology? - as in, you think it's fun BUT you're totally into neurotransmitters etc? - what you named is Pharmacology! Ahhh now transplants sounds fun! - I'd be interested to know if brains and faces can be transplanted one day I wouldn't mind researching into it tbh! - like if you pinpoint where personality is - which as far as I know is the frontal lobe mainly - you know, somehow reattach that to another healthy brain. Although I suppose finding a "healthy" brain to attach the dead one to would be tricky... :confused: You sorta have to be dead too, that healthy brain, which means it isn't so healthy... hehe! This is fun and interesting! Seeee this is Neuroscience! (yeh right!)

But overall, yeh, I don't sound that passionate about science, do I?

lol funny stories. I didn't do the brain because our teacher said it was too hard. We just briefly went over neurons and the importance of a larger brain in humans.

Well I sure hope you enjoy neurology! I'm sure you could change within the bio-medical departments if you wanted to.

Sorry if I scared you Rai. I'm not a mean person lol I just don't like ER and Presidio Med type programmes...guess thats why I'm going for a social sciene and not a biomedical one!

I think you are just selectively passionate about science, which is everyone I suppose. For example I don’t like physics – not all, for I like space and waves. Just magnetism and how a motor works just don’t do it for me!

As for brain and transplant – it is not really possible. For to reattach a brain, don’t forget we would need to spinal column as well…they are irrevocably attached. And then brain cells cannot repair due to an inhibitor. If they could repair, a person who has had a stroke would recover pretty quickly and so would people with Parkinson and Alzheimer’s. But they don’t. For Parkinson they are looking into a treatment where they inject stem cells into the area of the brain affected and thus stimulate undifferentiated cells to differentiate into specialist cells. But as far as I know they are not very far with that either. This is where my fascination with the brain lies. It is probably the most unexplored part of the human body and it is the mixture of intricate and the ‘drill’. Face transplant…that one is feasible. But it would be more like a copy of the face rather than the whole face it self. So stem cells again!

Ok…sorry I just love talking about this! Hehe .

Which hall is your ex in Amzybaby24? I like that idea of corridor cricket and then lazing in the sun with sandwiches during summer after exams! Ideal world, lol.

Mr Allwood is/was scared of me for numerous reasons. Most probably because I used to ask stupid unrelated questions and he needed to refer to some odd book and then find an answer some days later. And then in year 12 we had this coursework where we had to design our own stuff and I made up something which I thought was quite cool (got me full marks as well!!!) and he wouldn’t let me…so I threw a whole tantrum about it and well it was really really simple – it was just out of the norm!

Daniel don’t worry, I don’t get scared that easily! Hehe. But you have to convince me about that mean thing, lol . Well I crack stupid jokes and sometimes I don’t know what the other person thinks, so if I offend anyone around here I apologies in advance! And I can fully understand your inclination away from ER…but I myself am crazy about the world economy and follow the stock market, not much of international economics I know :p: .

lol ok then its all fine. I was just worried that you thought I was mean because I said I hate ER lol. I guess its in part because of this girl in my class who is such a pain and wants to do pre-med in the US. Due to her I kind of associate medicine with something negative lol. Bad me I know. I like it when people are passionate about a subject You sound like me talking about the Great Depression in History Class...I began talking about buying stocks on margin and unemployment issues and then I realized that I Mr. economics had kicked in so I stopped talking haha.

Oh I consider passion to be a good thing, But I enjoy talking to people with other subject interests. Would be boring with only medics, with conversation only about medicine. And well I have this cousin who went for his oxford interview for geology and he was given three rocks and asked to talk about them. He talked for 20 mins (god knows how one can talk about rocks for 20 mins) and then the interviewer asked him to stop and he said, ‘oh crap, but I only just started’ (silly bugger got in with scholarship, about 6 years ago). So I can understand what you mean when you start talking and without realising you are ranting on with your speech. No harm done I guess, its good in a way. Whats the point in doing something you are not into!!!

Hehe nice story. Yeah it is true I guess, nice to talk to people with different interests, makes you learn a lot also.

Irising you were talking to me on that other thread about human pride. Yes it is funny the way we think what we do sometimes is the best. But luckily for me I am a bit british and a bit brazilian so I notice differences a lot more. One thing that really annoys me about many brazilians is the tollerance for corruption. People here don't want corruption but aren't really concerned whether a dirty politician gets put behind bars or not. I get really temperamental about things like this haha. Having criticized one side of myself I must criticize the other. What probably gets to me the most about brits is how sometimes people don't appreciate what they have. Britain has the NHS, organizaed government, fairly low crime rate and a huge income per capita...its something like $28,000 compared to $2,700 in Brazil :|

did you get a chance to look around the halls on Jubilee Campus??
Not really I saw one called Newick but didn't get to see much of it. From what i was told they are all identical there though. Campus was a bit industrial but had a nice canal/stream thing throught the middle of it.

Selectively passionate about science... :rolleyes: to tell the truth I'm not "passionate" about science at all Science is interesting and can be fascinating though As for Physics, the only part of "Physics" I actually like, I've found is actually part of Maths - which gave me a shock that I actually LIKE a bit of Maths! - it's Theoretical Physics Willa told me all these theoretical physics stuff, how His Dark Materials are actually based on many of those theories like another world and parallel worlds etc - unfortunately it was not *quite* a conversation cus I know nothing about it, but Willa knew loads so he gave me a brief intro of it - it was well interesting!

And yeh goodness knows how the guy managed to talk about rocks for 20 minutes! But then again he is off to do geology so would be worrying if he couldn't I suppose! Yeh it's more fun having people who're passionate about different things My passion has always been Art I managed to go over by 1000 words in my wirtten study and that's after deciding not to talk about everything I see in the painting (anyone interested should go to Fitzwilliam Museum in Cambridge - the one by Salvator Rosa - it's SUCH a brilliant painting!!!) I stood there for ages just staring at it :p: Art and Theology is probably the two things I can talk on for hours on end :rolleyes: Funny, I'm not doing either one of those subjects!

Hmmm I suppose the spinal cord is a problem with brain transplants. The stem cell technique sounds more usable. Can't you just reconnect the base of the brain - cannot remember what the small bit is called! - the bit responsible for respiration and what-nots - with an intact spinal cord? You don't need to transfer a spine with the brain :confused: Lol I don't even have a clue as to what on earth I'm on about but yeh, it's interesting

Hmmm I'm not sure there really is a serious subject I'm really passionate about Art, God and writing - my friend mentioned Art History would've been good for me cus I sound like an art critic when I was helping her with her written study.

So what did you wanna make for that project? Yeh my friend's Physics teacher is sorta like that, one time he specificaly said he doesn't know a lot about lazers, so his entire class asked him lots of questions about it - then in the same class Mr Clements, the teacher, put a diagram on the OHP when the class said the diagram doesn't make sense. Mr Clements looked at it and realise it didn't make sense but couldn't work out why it didn't so spent the entire lesson working it out And apparently for homework, he would say "Look at questions this and that" and the class would come back saying "Yes sir, I've looked at them. Just not done them - cus you only asked us to look at them" The teacher apparently play around with them like that and one time he was gonna show them a video but couldn't find a TV, so he brought in the video, "Here I said I'll show you a video." and literally showed them it Their Physics class sounds fun doesn't it?

Daniel, how does not wanting corruption but not really caring whether there is corruption work together? And yeh I suppose the western world can be quite ungrateful at times - anyone can be lol - I sometimes wanna visit one of the third-world countries just to see what it's really like cus I simply can't comprehend it, hence I don't understand it, which also means the truth is, I don't care much about it either, but I really should care. This sorta reminds me of something I heard in church - when people in the UK, USA type places get asked why they don't believe in God, they say it's cus of suffering. But then we get clips from people who've been to do missionary work in places like Uganda, Tanzania etc and the churches there are so vibrant and lively and everyone who comes back says they're so full of joy - but they're the victims of suffering. It's strange, but interesting point really.

Thats cool that your really into arts and mathsy things. I like art a lot but I would never want to take art classes because I'm not very artistic if you know what I mean. Ok I understand you not loving science but do you like it enough to take a 3 year course lol?

Yeah I know what you mean by the whole understanding thing. Its funny because when I lived in Hong Kong and England I seriously could care less about the third world and in fact I hated it haha. I remember not wanting to come to Brazil when my parents said they were transferred. But after being here I finally comprehend things and am really into seeing things change around here. The country isn't complete chaos, its one of the worlds biggest economies its just that wealth distribution here is terrible. On a single street you can see ghetto shacks and huge mansions. The corruption thing is like this...people obviously don't like corruption because their taxes are being deviated to some guys swiss bank account haha...but they don't protest that much. The judiciary system here is really corrupt so these corrupt politicians pay the judges to stall their case and maybe make the sentence lessen. If things like this happened in the UK the media would be making huge noise and god knows what would happen, perhaps protests in front of the parliament? Its sad but the Brazilian people are so used to corruption they've sort of accepted it as a factor of life. At least the media here now denounces corruption but it still isn't enough to cause a change.

You ARE passionate enough to want to do it for 3 years! And by selectively I meant only like some bits, but interested and fascinated would do

Maths bit of physics is fun – hehe, but then I love maths. Would have done it if medicine hadn’t clinched me. I like particle and quantum physics, but most of all I enjoy the sky . So if you like art and theology so much why did you choose neuroscience? But then theology and art are human interpretations of the unexplainable ( or so I think) and neuroscience is a more logical and fact based study of the human brain. As for the ‘bit’ that attaches the spine and the brain and is the lower portion of the brainstem – it’s the medulla oblongata. And you cannot attach them, again because of that inhibitor, which wouldn’t allow any cell repair at the junction.

Oh the project was design your own experiment related to enzymes. And I wanted to explore which sort of tissue is metabolically MOST active – from a selection of different tissues, of both plant and animal. This is by assuming that catalase percentage would denote the level activity. And he was being mean, but then they love me, really, all of them. So I could do it in the end…yippee! It was so much fun not smelling for yeast – although I smelt a bit because of all the meat, don’t know which one is worse!

Corruption, eh? Well India is almost a similar story as Brazil I think. The economy is growing at a humongous rate, although that is expected by a developing nation. But from my visits, sometimes I find the comfort of living more there! You drive around in a chauffer driven car and then you see things around you - and if you don’t want to, you can look away at the horrific state of some parts! But then the corruption affects the poor mostly, who have no power and if they do question it, I am not sure what would happen to them, to be honest. Their problems and situation would worsen :mad: ! The difference in wealth is huge, too.

Salvator Rosa, Fitzwilliam Museum - would that be Human Fragility? Quite an interesting painting!

Physics lesson does sound fun. My GCSE physics lesson – ahem, I don’t remember much! I used to sleep along with most of the others, for Mr. Terry had a lullaby voice .

You drive around in a chauffer driven car and then you see things around you - and if you don’t want to, you can look away at the horrific state of some parts! But then the corruption affects the poor mostly, who have no power and if they do question it, I am not sure what would happen to them, to be honest. Their problems and situation would worsen :mad: ! The difference in wealth is huge, too.

Salvator Rosa, Fitzwilliam Museum - would that be Human Fragility? Quite an interesting painting!

Physics lesson does sound fun. My GCSE physics lesson – ahem, I don’t remember much! I used to sleep along with most of the others, for Mr. Terry had a lullaby voice .
Yes thats true...to study something for three years you are passionate enough.

Hehe what you said about India made me because I feel the exact same way...yes I love living here because we live "better". Yeah I guess people feel they don't have the power to. But a few months ago some 200 people sent e-mails protesting that ministers were wanting to decide their own raise (thats an example of brazilian law...ministers can vote on a higher salary for themselves) and they decided not to because of the protests.

I have quite a few Indian friends, they are all really nice people

You ARE passionate enough to want to do it for 3 years! And by selectively I meant only like some bits, but interested and fascinated would do

Maths bit of physics is fun – hehe, but then I love maths. Would have done it if medicine hadn’t clinched me. I like particle and quantum physics, but most of all I enjoy the sky . So if you like art and theology so much why did you choose neuroscience? But then theology and art are human interpretations of the unexplainable ( or so I think) and neuroscience is a more logical and fact based study of the human brain. As for the ‘bit’ that attaches the spine and the brain and is the lower portion of the brainstem – it’s the medulla oblongata. And you cannot attach them, again because of that inhibitor, which wouldn’t allow any cell repair at the junction.

Oh the project was design your own experiment related to enzymes. And I wanted to explore which sort of tissue is metabolically MOST active – from a selection of different tissues, of both plant and animal. This is by assuming that catalase percentage would denote the level activity. And he was being mean, but then they love me, really, all of them. So I could do it in the end…yippee! It was so much fun not smelling for yeast – although I smelt a bit because of all the meat, don’t know which one is worse!

Isn't there something that can disable the inhibitor to allow for regeneration? There must be, surely?

YAY you've seen Salvator Rosa's painting! - I know it's SUCH a brilliant painting! I wrote something like 3 pages for it - had to cut it down to page and a half I don't use the English name though I use the Italian name - L'Umana Fragilita You ever read the Art History bit about Rosa? - he painted it a year after the plague that had struck Naples - his son, his sister, her husband and all 5 of their children all died in the plague and Rosa afterwards painted that painting - when he's usually known for his good humour and cheerfulness. I had a bit of fun writing that bit of history actually - I sorta structured it so it portrays the tragedy of it quite well - cus I found a quote from Rosa - he wrote - the least pain I feel is when I say that I weep as I write. Sad isn't it? But anyway, L'Umana Fragilita is an excellent painting!

Theology - being a Christian I don't believe it's just a load of psychology with no right or wrong answers as for Art, true there's no right or wrong answers at all but that's fun! - it's all about psychology, all about what you're trying to express, how you manipulate your audience's feelings and thoughts and how you capture a moment you wanna portray - and then to study just HOW someone does it effectively - and then to make it your own so you can recreate it, but in what is yours, and make it into whatever you want it to be - it's fascinating! Just like, how lines and colours come together to form a picture - how you achieved that - and the peacefulness that comes with it as well - just so relaxing! I can sit there and draw for hours and not realise the time. It's the same with writing - just psychology - and words and pictures are such powerful things they helped shape history - they have so much impact on society - they're the source of power, as it were - books, paintings, all the burnings that's happened through history because governments were scared of what these things could do, the government not publishing certain photos etc during the war etc - Art and writing are just brilliant!

In comparison lol sorry but investigating into tissues isn't really my thing especially not when it involves plant - plant science is so boring! Which is also why I got such a low mark for my Physiology and Transport module at AS - all about plants and physiology, module I hated - got C for it - which is what helped drag my A grade to a very marginal A

And no poor people don't really get a voice to speak up - but Daniel, cooool that those people's protests actually worked! Maybe it's just the isolation the poor has in their lives, and how they can't even get by from day to day, some of them anyway, they have more important things to worry about like their next meal - rather than go do protests. And given that, they can't really speak up, and sturggling on their own means they also don't get support and don't get listened to and just sorta maybe got used to it that way. Given the chance they'd all rise up, probably. Dunno, politics is complicated - I don't know much about it really :confused:

Hehe Rai, you don't need a lullaby teacher to put you to sleep in Physics In my maths lessons I wrote stories - never did any maths I wrote an entire crime story lol! - it was, handwritten, maybe 90-odd pages, maybe more. I typed it up it was about 60-odd pages :p: Our maths teacher was strange - she'd do better as a social worker. She went up to my friend Claudia and said "Claudia, I don't think we have a relationship anymore." and Claudia sorta freaked out and was like - did we EVER have a relationship!?

I really liked sherwood and rutland, granted they were pretty ugly on the outside but they were just as good as everywhere else inside. The clincher was that the people were really good fun and friendly as well.
Rutland rules





Just thought i'd add that..

Look, have any of you guys ever heard of PM'ing each other. Let's keep the posts related to the thread titles. This is the one thing about TSR which is really beginning to p*** me off. Loads of people search for threads related to something important and when they finally find one it's filled with posts from people having their own private conversations.
