Question by Cade: What is a career in Neuroscience like? ANYONE with neuro experience please!?
What is a career in Neuroscience like? ANYONE with neuro experience please!?
IN CLASS what should I expect? A lot of reading? Memorization? Hands on? How many years does it usually take before you are in a lab and able to work on research? Is the field competitive? I want to do lab research. Is the pay good (although not in it for the pay) and finally how math heavy is it and what can I do now as a new college student taking basic classes to prepare myself?

Interested in neurophysiology branch
Sorry first half got cut off. Basically I said when I think of neuroscience first thing that comes to mind are those 3D animations you always see on tv shows.

I have no other real experience of working in a lab I never took those sort of classes in grade school.

Answer by Talono
I don’t know much about neuroscience, but I do know a few general things:

If you expect to do any kind of science-related research work, it will always be math heavy.

Biology is always especially heavy on memorization.

There really is no time requirement to start research. Since you’re in college, you can start research as an undergraduate through your college’s mentoring programs, various undergraduate research programs across the country, or by asking a professor. Afterwards, you can go to Grad school to do more research. After Grad school, you’ll probably do a postdoc or go into industry. If you’re really good, you can get hired by a university.

Question by RandiVoo: T.S. Eliot and the Stream of Consciousness.. Help, please?
My term paper is “the style of stream of consciousness in the writings of T.S. Eliot”. Does anyone know the main environmental influences that led him to use that technique? Or not necessarily environmental, just what influences led him to use it? I’ve been looking through books and searching it all over the internet but everything was so broad and I couldn’t limit the topic. It’s giving me such a hard time and I havent even started yet!
I’d appreciate as much help as possible =)

Best answer:

Answer by groucho marxist
I think stream of consciousness isn’t really consciousness, since that is undefinable, but a stream of thought, either memories of events that are similar and form a chain of events, or a line of logic uninhibited by societal conditioning, or maybe both logic and memory. When we are creative we use the right side of our brain that is less conditioned and freer than the left side, and this is very common with of course doing art, like poetry. So I don’t think TS Eliot was doing anything different from other writers and poets. I think the way he wrote made it more apparent. I suspect it was an hallucinogenic, like grass, that showed him how to do this during the 60′s hippie subculture, which a lot of artist where using then.

Question by mobeks: got into UCLA neuroscience and Berkeley College of Chemistry. Please help me pick.?
This is for undergraduate programs at those colleges.

UCLA pros: I am strongly passionate about neuroscience, so this seems nearly perfect
con: Very far from where I live, (8 hours at least!)

Berkeley pros: It has greater, however slight, prestige.
It has the number 1 (or really really close) chemistry program in the world
It is fairly close, which means i can drive home and see my family every(other) weekend

Please explain why I should pick your suggestion. If you pick Berkeley, do you think that going there will allow me a better career in neuroscience(because I’m assuming I’ll be pretty well equipped chemistry or chemical biology-wise)
1 hour ago – 4 days left to answer.
Additional Details
Not going to Berkeley seems like a waste, especially because of how hard it is to get in there and get acquainted with such a prestigious environment(would provide me contacts, etc. which would be great for future careers)
I plan to go to medical school

Best answer:

Answer by Catarina
You are passionate about neuroscience, so you are more likely to be an outstanding star of the program at UCLA. Are you aiming for medical school or a PhD?

Distance from your family of origin should not be a primary factor since you will be growing and changing more than you can predict now in the first years of college.

Question by : Gender and sexuality studies in relation to science. Please help me figure out how to combine them?
I love science and would love to have it geared at a specific topic of study
i love biochemistry and neuroscience the most
Is there a way i can use science to study things such as gender, sex and sexuality
Maybe genetics? Idk
I want to take courses and have a job that involves science but science that reveals or works to discover things about gender and sexuality
so think more in terms of genes or brain chemistry rather than psychology or sociology

please and thank you!

Best answer:

Answer by Paul
Not sure about sociologists, but many psychologists today rely on brain studies in their work, so don’t knock out some research just because it was carried out by a psychologist. Most studies that focus on a part of the brain involved in a certain activity use PET (positron emission tomography) scans, which can take minutes to capture a single image. In terms of sex, minutes can be, well, just a few minutes too long. But some studies have emerged in the last decade or so, some also making use of a technique known as fMRI.

Check out a 2003 study by Serge Stoléru, a neuroscientist at Pierre and Marie Curie University in France (see second source). They showed a series of pictures and films, including erotic and ordinary ones, to 15 men in an experiment. They scanned their brains during the viewing of the pictures and movies. In general, there was a definite difference in the brain recruitment between men who had “ordinary” sex lives and those who suffered from a condition that makes them experience sexual desires and fantasies much less than average people. Is that the kind of research that you’re interested in. Maybe a trip to France is in order. :-)

Generally, we know in the brain, sex and the sexuality response seem to be located in the temporal lobe, which is too big a site to say we know much more about it than we did before we knew the temporal lobe was involved. Specifically, the amygdala seems to put together the emotional response, and the hippocampus takes care of memories (associating sights and smells with past experiences). Also, some studies have also revealed that higher centers (those normally associated with understanding other people’s intentions) also kick into gear.

Question by carly_jepson_rocks: Please help I need to write a report for health class?
I need to write a report for health class. I can write about anything as long as its health related. I’ve searched the internet for ideas but I just don’t know what to write about. Does anyone have any ideas? If you do have any ideas please tell me where I can find information on the internet.
When I was in 8th grade I wrote about how certain household products are known to cause cancer. It was a little controversal but I got an A+. Please let me know if you have any ideas.
Where did you find that?

Question by Happy Hiram: Adventures in Montreal. C/C if you please?
Lachine Canal

Concrete river 
too straight and narrow 
but curving gently into 
the distance in a world of green
surrounded the harsh outlines 
of the city. 

You are not easy to love, 
not as ugly as you appear, 
not as beautiful 
as the brochures suggest; 
but you are warm and firm, 
passage is smooth 
and the sun on your back 
starts to make it a nice day;
when suddenly from far inside 
a little feeling arises 
that this is a profound moment, 
that I have never felt 
so far away from the city, 
the one in my heart…

…and I can accept 
that I am not who I was, 
I am free, 
and all from slinking along 
some shoddy canal.  

Life is a mystery wrapped
like a fish, in old newspapers.

Comments/Critiques?
I missed a word: surrounded BY

Best answer:

Answer by Danny R
5th line
Did you mean
surrounded BY the harsh outlines
or
surroundING the harsh outlines
?
The rest of the poem seems to be in the present tense, so this was confusing.
