"Your concoction worked fine Dr. Oesper, but how do
we get Larry Phillips back."
Quality control at Hahnemann
"I think the vagus is over there."
on hemianopsia, or that hemiballism has nothing to do with crytorchidism.
We worked our way down from the cortex through the maze of the
internal capsule, the substantia nigra, the brachium pontis, until we finally
arrived at the nucleus ambiguus - which it all was. Can we ever forget
the day of the neuroanatomy final when the mercurial midget distributed
what we thought were supplements to the Philadelphia telephone direc-
tory and then announced, "all right you rascals, count 'em and make
sure you have seventeen pages."
A few of us are still waiting for that lecture that was supposed to tie
everything together . . . or did we have it'??'?
BIOCHEMISTRY had us going around in cycles. ln this course we had a
lot of contact with our professors -- particularly after exams. The de-
partment knew us by code number, except Dr. DeFrates, he knew every-
one by their first name the second day after the course started. We
learned the Krebs Cycle forward, backward and sideways and could
trace the labeled carbon all the way from pyruvic acid to carbon
dioxide. We studied the work of Dr. Alper's two uncles-Embden and
Myerhof. Dr. Boyd beguilded us with the intricacies of the Urea Cycle and
as a result we knew what happened to the N15 in hamburger - as long
as it was served without onions. During the spring we had 6 weeks
vacation as we worked on individual research proiects. The labs were
filled with chickens, rats, mice, guinea pigs, rabbits - and even an
occasional student. Our first attempt at venipuncture were tried with the
production of much mental trauma and hematomas.
PHYSIOLOGY stimulated us at T5 millesecond intervals. It took us 5
weeks to learn the names of the equipment. We killed dogs, decorticated
cats, pithed frogs la few pithed backl, fudged kymographs and got to
the very heart of the turtle. While Mr. Bechtel was teaching the humani-
ties, Corbett was demonstrating man's inhumanity to man, and proved to
Slifkin that the fist is quicker than the nose.
We learned -- chronaxie, d'emblee, recruitment, rheobase, threshold,
and latent period - and fatigue is what we got out of it. Dr. Scott was
all heart. Dr. Reed's lectures gave us nervous exhaustion - so we slept.
Then he tried temporal summation li.e., when successive stimuli which
are too boring to evoke a response are applied to an afferent student,
they may be made effective by increasing the rate - but don't bet on
itl. We utterly destroyed Van Slyke's theories and derived lll new meth-
ods for figuring out a CO2 - all without a single case of mercury
The animals in physio were either very uncooperative or very dumb.
They more often than not did the opposite of what the texts described
Saturday morning was always a dread time. We did not mind the tests
as much as we wondered if we would understand the instructions in
time to do the test. The technicolor movies ran at half speed with English
narrators were always a big hit.
