    Thanks, everyone! I'm just a bit stunned that I was able to do this. I've never done this well in school before *and* I was hospitalized for 3 days in the middle of the quarter with a small bowel obstruction so I had to play catch up for weeks. Guess it goes to show what you can do when you really want to do something .

    You can do it, i am taking AP II and Micro, everyone is discouraging me, but I am doing it. I believe you can do anything you put your mind to.

    Do the nerves/nerve plexi (plexus-es?) confuse anyone else? I'm plugging away and trying to learn everything but I'm still a little boggled. I can't seem to get a picture in my head of where they come out and get resorted, and where they go from there...anyone have any luck with this stuff/any suggestions?

    I have to dissect a cat tonight in lab...woohoo! Spent last evening at home reading in my lab manual about how to skin the darned thing...definitely could've done without my hubby piping up from the living room saying "there's more than one way to skin a cat, harharhar!"

    Does anyone else have to memorize 50-something muscles including origin, insertion, and function? Holey moley this is a lot of stuff!

    Does anyone know a good website for the integumentary system? I'm looking for a diagram of the skin with all of the nerves and stuff inside of the skin labeled, please.

    Alright, who's good with the nervous system? This whole "potentials" thing has got me baffled...I understand that they're signals, and that graded potentials are for short distances and degrade, and action potentials travel long distances and don't lose strength...but do action potentials only travel down axons to another neuron or an effector? And graded potentials can be converted to action potentials and they occur in dendrites?

    Just so I have this straight...sensory neurons receive sensory input at their dendrites, which then travles down axon to CNS where it is integrated. Then the motor neurons receive this signal from the CNS at their dendrites and send the "message" to another neuron/an effector via their axon --> axonal terminal/endbulb (which release neurotransmitters)...right? Thank you!!!

    ok so I took my second lecture and lab test (2 to go) we did the intugamentary system and bones. i feel really good about the lab. Bone Physiology is tricky

    But i worked and prayed hard.The rest is up to the God:bowingpur
