Making things right
Now as best as I can understand it what they're saying is these are biomarkers of early outcome. The basic idea is that if you take a bundle of nerves in brain tissue (microtubules) and just get hit really hard, say, in a car accident or something - theres two ways to go. The bundles either drop to 150 kD , or 120. If they go to 150, which the way I think of it, is like, a rest potential like a voltage or something - then you get better. Unless you drop , there at which point the cells swell and then boom. Accidental death. The other way is to 120, which they can't hold onto and die by committing cellular programmed death.
There you go. It took a week, but now I'm semi-coherent. The doctor's name was Joe Tepas. >:)
Naturally I have alot of other places to make things right but for now I'm back at the forum + I am going to be there until 9 or so. Little ones, neighbors, anyone I could get to go with me. Oh wait - two more things. Just unrelated facts, but I want to store them here. In you. and let them grow.
- A joke that Dr. Tepas' wife made - "When you die, you go to Hartsfield"
- The brain relies on ++large++ populations of neurons acting in concert to operate and create memories - we only make shortcuts later, maybe even while we're dreaming (our REM patterns, if you compare them, compare most to animals in the hunt)
- This same work applies to language, perception and behavior
Misty I like your style. I didn't say I like your blog, but I like your style. Every time I see your icon I always think of that famous line from WC Fields when they asked him why he drinks so much.. he said. "Never drink waterr". And they said why and he said. "Fish piss..".
