Neurology

Daniel Roe
Poster: Daniel Roe @ Sun Apr 13, 2008 3:35 pm

So I'm studying neurology right now.. well I guess technically I'm taking a break from that to write about studying, which may be even less entertaining.

The current block is focused on the senses. All of them. Except the 6th Sense, which is kind of shitty after the first time you see it so we med students tend to ignore it.

I'm really vexed about olfaction. Smell is supposedly the most primitive of all the senses, but it's incredibly decentralized and complicated. You could say it's the clusterfuck of the somatic afferent pathways.

If you were to monitor the brain activity when you smell something, you'd notice that the cascade of firing neurons will light up regions in the brain in sort of a methed out version of that Simon game with the wild blinking colored panels and piercing amelodic rhythmic tones. If you were to take a snapshot of it, I'm sure it'd resemble a Lite-Brite image of an upside down pentagram on a Mobius Strip.

I wonder which one of these firing neurons sends a signal astray into the murderous cortex whenever I smell the smell of chamomile tea. God damned hippies.
