"This is one more piece of advice I have for you: don’t get impatient. Even if things are so tangled up you can’t do anything, don’t get desperate or blow a fuse and start yanking on one particular thread before it’s ready to come undone. You have to realize that it is going to be a long process and that you’ll work on things slowly, one at a time."

This is not a tasty gummy sweet but a Jewel Caterpillar found in Amazon Rainforest. They are covered with sticky goo-like, gellatinous tubercles that provides protection from its predator like ants until they metamorphosise into winged moths.

Study shows anaesthesia may harm memory
General anaesthesia before the age of one may impair memory later in childhood, and the effects may possibly be lifelong, a study said Monday.
This was the conclusion of scientists who compared the recollection skills of two groups of children — some who had undergone anaesthesia in infancy and others who had not.
The children, aged six to 11 and divided into two groups of 28 each, were tested over a period of 10 months for their ability to recollect specific drawings and details therein.
The children who had been anaesthetised as babies had about 28 per cent less recollection on average than their peers, and scored 20 per cent lower in tests that assessed how much detail they could remember about the drawings.
"The children did not differ in tests measuring intelligence or behaviour, but those who had received anaesthesia had significantly lower recollection scores," said a media summary provided by the journal Neuropsychopharmacology, which published the results.

I haven’t been blogging much lately in between going to the lab and night class. It’s been busy, but I’ve definitely learned a lot. Hopefully I can get a nice rest this weekend and talk a bit about what’s been going on!
