Second one down, two more to go!

So had my advanced neurophysiological methods exam toady! The questions were pretty tough, but I attempted the two on the topics I’d studied. This means I had to write about how imaging studies have helped with our understanding of TMS on neural activity, luckily I read Allen et al. (2007) before heading off! And then the second question I chose was why is it possible to use MEG to localise neural activity better than EEG.. that was a toughy, more physicsy than I am comfortable with, but I tried to cover all possibilities and showed ‘wider reading’.
So now I’m sat in my room trying to get motivated to look over statistics, that’s the next one and is 2hr 15min on Friday. I’m sure I won’t need that whole time, but oh well.
Note to self for my next exam though, go to the bathroom before it begins on if you only think you need it a little bit, by the end of TWO hours you WILL be desperate! 😦
Bye ya’ll x

Just a quick update re exams

The questions I needed came up, answered one about olfactory perception and began it with a quote from Romeo and Juliet, ‘That which we call a rose by any other name would still smell as sweet’. And it’s always a good sign if you can quote the Bard in a science exam. The other question was about optic ataxi and the structure of the motor system. Was okay. Not sure if I was able to answer them at a MSc level. I feel like I was only about as impressive as a first year but at least I got something down. I only need 50% to pass this exam and if I get the bare minimum of 50 I’ll still have a 2:1 for this unit overall. Lovely.

I’m off to revise Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation, and EEG and Magnetoencephalography ready for tomorrows morning exam on methods. Might have a nap first though.

Sorry for the absence..

Just a quick note to say this blog will be more active after May 4th when I can resume my normal life and be free of exams once and for all!
Topics I’m hoping to cover include:
Can kids as young as 6 really have bipolar? And is it right then to medicate them?
Why I love Nina and the Neurons.
Yes, we will make you more moral by zapping your brain!
Exams, what are they good for?
and anything else that comes to mind…
Ciao for now
O 🙂
