#Throwback to my final lab rotation and first time working with cells. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ These little guys are a great model! Easy to use and you can gets tons of data in a relatively short timeframe. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀
Here is one of the experiments I ran during my rotation:
Swipe right to see the overlay ➡️➡️➡️ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀ In red you can see a membrane protein labeled with a red fluorophore that we hypothesized interacts with the expresses GFP (green fluorescent protein). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
By applying different agonists/antagonists, one can begin to understand and characterize how these proteins may be interacting 👌

My awesome advisor gave this lecture tonight. I loved it, mainly because so much of it hit home for me. I am a survivor of repeated traumatic brain injuries from childhood. I consider myself lucky to have found my “sanity,” peace, and hope through birds.
Without birds, my path could have been entirely different. Birds have always been there for me, when no one else has. Some people never find that hope.
I am pursuing my career in abnormal psychology because I believe I may be able to help contribute to research that will help catch these problems in individuals before they suffer and eventually murder.
Alis volat propriis! 🧠 🦅 💜

It's been a bright 🌞 and colourful 🌈 day spent working 💻 on my review article at home 🏠. Bearing the very end of what has been an excruciatingly long and painstakingly complicated 😩 data extraction, but this publication is going to be 100% worth it (I hope). I think it's exactly what the field has been asking for, and it's an exciting feeling to think that I've almost (it's not published yet) delivered that 😁. Now to get writing and draft up the results and discussion section of my manuscript, and make a few tweaks to the intro and methods - and we're off! 💁🏼 Sooooooo excited to submit this one 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻

Day 2 Of #TheYogaBrain is body perception: choosing a pose that allows me to focus on various parts of my body at once.
I decided to go with Triangle Pose. Although it may look easy, this pose requires me to pay attention to somatic sensations (soma: the body regulated within - embodied conscious awareness) and then my brain/cognitions with my senses told me to perceive this pose as difficult!😬😁 I am going to share some very interesting information on perception from @vythathin “Interestingly, some parts of the brain involved in self body perception are also involved in the perception of others actions - and their emotions (Peelen & Downing, 2007). This actually makes sense in terms of physiology: the body wants to conserve energy, and so will take the path of least resistance. Associating self body perception with the body perception of others is one such easy path. However, it’s still interesting to think that similar parts of the brain are active when you do something when you watch someone else do that thing. Seeing is doing: almost!
A very famous example of how your eyes can trick your brain into misperception of body parts is the rubber hand illusion: hide someone’s hand under the table and put a rubber hand in its place. If you stroke it while they look at it, they will eventually feel the sensations as though it were their own hand (Gatta et al, 2016).
Vision is one of the most crucial senses to our daily function (I may have a slight bias as a visual neuroscientist 😉) - try doing a pose with your eyes shut and see how it affects your perception of where your body really is!”

The relationship isn’t boring. Life is boring, and you’re just now noticing for the first time as an adult because you aren’t being distracted by some youthful flavor of chaos.

If you want to keep from becoming ungrateful, do some serious soul-searching and identify exactly what’s missing in your life now that you’re in a stable, healthy relationship. “Things aren’t fresh anymore” isn’t a good enough answer. Be very fucking specific, and very fucking honest with yourself. Remember, fresh isn’t the same thing as exciting, and excitement isn’t the same thing as chaos.

If you can’t come up with a specific and valid problem other than the mild state of boredom known as everyday life, then guess what? This is as good as it gets. Take that as good news or bad. Either way, you’d be wise not to go searching for a taste of chaos. That shit isn’t a spice.


Great Read from @mayoclinic #clinical update📰

Relating it back to #step1 You need to know what histones are. In page 1 of biochemistry section in any version of @firstaidteam for USMLE STEP 1 book you will find the definition of Histones

Always remember what you are learning for #USMLE Step 1 DOES MATTER
