Greetings, Rea! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus lately. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home. We'd be glad for you to share your story of why you're an atheist.
thought there would be more Oregonians on here. I am from Salem and there was only one person other than my wife on here from Salem. Only a year old site and I just found out about it though. Your research is interesting, I hope you are able to help people understand how to better utilize their memory, cool.
Heya Rea, thanks for the add. Unfortunately open positions seem to be quite scarce at my uni. But hey, I know a few people now in the various fields that I'm interested in, so hopefully something will come up soon.
i spent some time learning psychology and also spent some time doing research in neuropsychology at a college in NYC while in high school...that was diff though, that dealt with mice and how they discriminate textures with their whiskers..fun though.
right now i'm writing about a lot of things (check out my blog), im working on my voice and style...plus this lets me see what interests me more...
Well, the answer is long and circuitous, but I'll sum up. I began my history career (which came after my microbiology and abnormal psych stint my freshmen year) with a keen interest in Byzantine history... and at some point, I remember loathing Western European history.
Lo and behold, I get one of those teachers who rocks my world and now I study Jewish/Muslim/Christian relations in Western Iberia, with emphasis on Islamic culture and learning.
I kinda feel cheated, because my real interest will always be Byzantium, but... (shrug).
I am interning at the Smithsonian Musuem of Natural History, to further confuse people and myself.
I refuse to believe that a neurobiologist would like to go hiking and camping. No, you must be squirrelly and reclusive. I've met the entire biology and psychology research department at my school and all of them were dressed in tweed coats.
My dad is a psychoneuroimmunologist (who doesnt like saying that?), with a specialty in pain control and measurement.
