Brain scan

This blog is for discussion of biology research. I tried to name this blog Medical Physiology but that name was already taken. Most topics here are related to medicine and I have a special interest in neurobiology, so this blog is called  “medicalneurophys”. However, my biology interests are broad, so in reality anything about living organisms is fair game!

Almost always we can relate a particular disease to specific cellular processes and molecules. Where possible we want to understand human physiology, but often we must make use of non-human experimental animals for research.

This is an education-oriented blog, so feel free to ask questions or provide related information/links. If you want to contribute and add your own blog posts here, let me know.
