and one more thing, a meme!

i had NO IDEA that i got tagged for a meme by my blog friend at Respiratory Therapy 101 back in NOVEMBER. that goes to show you how the brain of a med student shuts down to most outside stimuli during crunch times!

The post posted the following meme:

Pass it on to five other bloggers, and tell them to open the nearest book to page 56. Write out the fifth sentence on that page, and also the next two to five sentences. The CLOSEST BOOK, NOT YOUR FAVORITE, OR MOST INTELLECTUAL!

well, given that i am currently "studying" micro, i will have to use the "Clinical Microbiology made ridiculously simple" book. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK TO ALL MED STUDENTS.

ok, here is the sentence block...ok wait, page 56 in my book is a table. dangit! ok, i'll just use the fifth bullet:
  • Motile: flagella (so H-antigen positive)
haha, that was in reference to Clostridium tetani. wish the book i had was more interesting, but alas, had to play by the rules. and i'm SO SORRY that i didn't notice the tag earlier! and since i'm lame, i'll just not tag anyone. haha!

Although the canal and otolith afferents are largely segregated in the periphery, there is a large amount of canal-otolith convergence over a wide variety of neurons in the vestibular nuclei. Because vestibular and auditory fibers run together in cranial nerve VIII, damage to this structure often results in both auditory and vestibular disturbances. The central projections of the vestibular system participate in three major classes of reflexes: (1) helping to maintain equilibrium and gave during movemenr; (2) maintaining posture; and (3) maintaining muscle tone.

...I hate neuroanatomy.
