Another friday…another day stating out with physiology at 8am. Actually everything the last few lectures has been pure review for me. Gosh I love having taken neurobiology at UGA back in the day. Anyway, we have now moved our focus onto skeletal muscles and how they work. Basically we are talking about how we move as humans. How we can tell our leg or arm to move. Pretty interesting stuff!
Next was a lecture on adronergic antagonist in pharmacology. So far this stuff isn’t too bad, but it does seem like there is a lot of testable information. All i seems that it might be fair same for the professor to ask old material on current test. I guess it is all important information and we should remember everything, but wow…thats can be hard!
Next was physical assesment. Actually our first test in this class is on Monday so we had a two hour review today. For the most part we just went around the room and went of the online quizzes. To fill you in, we have online quizzes due for this class. We get two attempts to do the quizzes and are shown the correct answer after the first attempt. Actually this is a great way to learn and see what you know and don’t know…and a good way to make an easy grade. So we went over those quizzes. Well, we went around the room and everyone answered one of the questions that had appeared on a quiz. I guess the idea here was that the test is going to be like the quizzes.
After lunch we kinda ventured off track and had a lecture on the physiology of the hearing, smell and taste. Not much to explain here, but I can say that the ear is an amazing thing! You should check it out sometime on google.
And the last class for the day was another out of the blue lecture on pediatric emergencies. Actually we took our test for ophthalmology yesterday, but this lecture was left over and had to do it today.
The weekend is finally here!
