Neuroscience

What's up peeps? :)

I'm sure most of you are unaware of the fact that I am currently studying all there is to know about Neuroscience. Yer lah en, I didn't write any entry about it, so how can you guys know right? :P But yeah, the block prior to this which was the head and neck was to prepare us for our current block - Neuroscience.

Hence, up till now, I've found the topic somewhat interesting no matter how abstract it is. Why abstract you may ask? Well, for one, the Physiological point-of-view of Neuroscience tend to be resolving a lot around theories and MORE theories. There's even a FEW different theories on a SINGLE phenomena. Take the topic of 'referred pain' for example. To explain its occurrence, one could argue whether to agree with the "Facilitation theory" or the "Convergence theory". Both are accepted nowadays but you still can't resist arguing about it. :P

Neuro-anatomy on the other hand, requires a whole LOT of imagination. The structures are so MINUTE that when the professor asked me, "Can you see this fibres running transversely?". I squinted trying to look for the fibres mentioned and simpy answered, "Oh, yes." I didn't see it btw. Hehe. So at the end of the class, the professor said Neuroanatomy is very hard and one have to really read and try to understand before seeing it practically. Out of the blue I blurted, "Yeah, it is kind of IMAGINARY." Heh. He corrected me by saying, "It is not imaginary. It is there but you need to use your imagination." Macam takde beza je, kan? :P

Anyways, that happened during last week's practical. This week's practical was a whole lot easier since we're looking at the surface of the cerebral hemisphere. It felt somewhat awesome holding a brain in your hand. ;)

Subhanallah, how something which is the size of one's hand controls everything.

Well, you've got to admit, it does look cool. ;)
