Day 51-53: Nurse, we’re losing him! Check the pulse

First day of being a scientist. Yep, it’s actually not that hard. All you gotta do is wear a shirt and tie and you look like a professional. They always say that clothes make the man, so I became a doctor and it worked. I wasn’t even nervous. Why didn’t I do this for our presentation? I don’t know, but I’m glad I did it. I’m not going to tel you too much because our IRB has a confidentiality clause, but I’m glad we finally got some real people to help us. Thanks people!!! I can’t say who you are, but you know who you are and we’re thankful that you helped us. Anyways, there’s not much I can say, but I will talk about Thursday.

Our mentor spoke to us today and he told us a whole lot. Fun fact: HM was a patient who had his hippo campus removed to treat his seizures. While it was successful, it made it impossible for him to store long term memories.He was used to demonstrate that muscle memory is read and different from long term memory, as he could not remember having a skill, but was able to demonstrate the fact that he retained it. We had a nice talk and I still miss my dad’s bread.

That’s all I really had to say. Sorry for being so late, but we had to collect our data. Besides, I write too many of these anyways.
