This was originally not just a translation used for philosophy, but was also commonly a translation for logos in the sense of an account of money. The meaning of the word "reason" in senses such as "human reason" also overlaps to a large extent with " rationality " and the adjective of "reason" in philosophical contexts is normally " rational ", rather than "reasoned" or "reasonable".
Featuring 23 articles and 11 scientists Being a neuroscientist means I have a lot of awkward conversations in Home Depot. My questions, like this eager employee's, required a more technical level of explanation.
I do research with animals, and those parts of my job are hard to talk about. They didn't have Kapton tape, and I had the same conversation with three different employees.
In most cases, when you tell people you're a neuroscientist, they either assume you're the smartest person they've ever met or that you are one of those dreamy doctors who somehow never sleeps but always nails extremely intense brain surgery.
Uncomfortable explanations Most people accept my vague answers to "what is it you do, exactly? They want to know — and as taxpayers, they have a right to know — what I do on a daily basis.
In order to record from specific brain areas and cell types, many neuroscientists rely on studying animals, often mice. Mice aren't Woman is a rational animal smartest animals, but we do have an incredible toolbox that we can use to study specific cell types, receptors, or genes in them. In my second year of graduate school, I started recording from live neurons in miceand it was immediately clear to me that this sort of research would give us a whole new understanding of brain function.
Some days, I spend hours performing a delicate surgery on a mouse, most recently to implant a recording device. I spend more hours with the mouse than I do with most of my friends.
I observe its behavior and worry about its stress levels.
I tinker with wires, watch neurons flash across the screen, and perseverate on what kind of tape I should use. And once that mouse has helped us figure out something more about how its brain works, I respectfully euthanize it, and move on to the next experiment.
I'd like to think that as a society we've made a decision that working with animals is worth it Research like mine is tough, but it provides unprecedented insight about the role of specific cell types in the brain.
Some of these neurons, the ones that silence neighboring cells, are thought to be dysfunctional in disorders like schizophrenia.
With this type of research, we've learned how different receptors and neurons tune our reward system, changing how we conceptualize and treat addiction.
One time, I got into a deep conversation with a very inquisitive Lyft driver, who was completely baffled and a bit distraught by the fact that I used mice in my experiments.
Of course, there are also more outspoken animal rights activists. Each year, the Salk Institute has a 5K run to raise money for research — as a PhD student, I saw the protesters, read their signs, and heard their chants. Science is a noble pursuit, but it can be difficult to feel like a soldier while nobody at home understands It's difficult to hide any aspect of yourself, whether it's a part of your identity or something that you do everyday.
Academics are known to struggle with mental healthand part of this is likely because of the opaque lives many of us lead. Science is a noble pursuit, but it can be difficult to feel like an honorable soldier when nobody back on the home front understands our experience.
The best thing scientists can do to grapple with the hidden weight of doing animal research is to talk more about how we conduct our work and how it makes us feel, both with other scientists as well as with civilians.
We need to be able to talk about the squishy, emotional, sensitive parts of our daily lives, as well as the science. What we don't talk about can get buried in our psyche and undermine our ability to lead happy, productive careers.
In my ideal world, we would all have a shared understanding about what research really is, warts and all. Behind almost every science or medicine headline is an animal model, and many people who conducted research on that model.
We need to know how the whole endlessly complicated thing develops, changes, and breaks.

INDIRECT SUICIDE Suicide, perhaps the most obvious type of avoidable death at any age, is an intentional act that quickly results in death.
Spirit Animals can also be mythical animals. A Mythical Animal Spirit can be a strong symbol for a change in life. Mythical Spirit Animals are not usually a birth totem. For most of human history, the skins of harvested big-game animals were not discarded by hunters. As a product of the hunt, skins were just as essential to the survival of northern hunting cultures as were an animal’s meat, fat, and organs.
Woman is a Rational Animal "But now what am I, when I suppose that there is some supremely powerful and, if I may be permitted to say so, malicious deceiver who deliberately tries to fool me in any way he can?"(Decartes, 19). These words by Descartes seem to correlate directly with the theme of deception in the Princesse De Cleves.
