The 'Mc"s in Anatomy

If one watches Grey's Anatomy long enough, one will be well acquainted with characters like McDreamy and McSteamy.

In Ken Ashwell's anatomy lecture today, we come to know another "Mc" guy...

What's with the "Mc"s in anatomy?!

Of Fick's Law and the vestibular system...

Richard Vickery isn't exactly the type of physiology lecturer you'll die for but he can be amusing at times, especially when he starts using that scanner thingy in Clancy to show off his "live" drawings... When explaining Fick's Law yesterday, here's what he ended up drawing...

Did I mention he's an "animated" guy too?

A closer shot at the drawing...

Go figure out what he drew... No prizes for the right guess! In today's lecture on vestibular system, the thing that got us laughing was how Richard described that people who sleep on their tummy have falling dreams where they fall face-down while those who sleep on their backs fall backwards in their dreams - apologies to those who thought they can consult the dream guidebook to figure out what the type of falling can be interpreted as; there actually is a physio reason behind... Go grab that Guyton & Hall or Berne & Levy to understand... If you're not a medkid, go Google or Wiki, you may find something...

Gotta run for my next prac where we'll dissect a toad and perform physio pracs on its sciatic nerve... Hmm, still wondering what sort of dreams people get if they sleep on their sides or when they're sleeping while sitting upright... =P
