I thought for any new members that we have, it might be nice to introduce yourself. feel free to do so here

I'm Tom, and I'm a geek. I get to play with really expensive toys that someone else pays for, i.e. I'm an experimental physicist.

thnx friends

Hi Everyone,

 

I'm Lisa, and I'm currently getting my master's in neurobiology, and planning on a neurobiology PhD as my next venture. It's safe to assume that I like neurobiology, in addition to sarcasm, being outdoors, old textbooks, traveling, baking, snow, and bourbon.

 

I joined this thread because I spend all day learning about science, thinking about science, and practicing science, so naturally I want nothing more than to come home every night and talk about more science; hopefully you guys can help out with that.

 

Looking forward to chatting with you all!

Hello, my name is Benjamin and I'm from Germany. I'm currrently highly mentally busy thinking about certain science/philosophy stuff, so much, that I recently got my own age wrong by year :eek: . No need to worry about me, however :eyebrow:

OK, when I first came on this forum I was more than a bit in a mood. Seeing what kind of reaction I'd get is still a fast track to getting to know a new forum, however. But that doesn't mean I still can't benefit in the long run from things. And yes, alcohol is one way to give me courage.(Pay no attention that I just started the past to sentences off with "But" and "And".) I apologize for me previous posts. Now I'm just saying 'hello' and hopefully to start afresh...

 

I am a physics major and sometimes wonder if I should have majored in math. When I was younger I wanted to study intelligence but the chemistry involved in the human brain seemed to me too far back to be a reliable scientific endeavour. My fovorite author is Sigmund Freud as I found his works so perplexing.

 

Anyways, Hi.

Hi I'm Don I work in education.

 

Good user name Don. Writing on page which goes left to right and then right to left like ploughing oxen - learnt that on holiday in Crete many moons ago. On the mad chance you learnt of it in the same place - did you know that they have recently decyphered the Codex of Phaistos; the spiral clay tablet?

Hello. I'm ceyha. Each letter of my nickname stands for a part of my name. I am interested in many of the sciences, but I decided not to major in the field of science. Instead, I am majoring in special education and psychology. However, I find science intriguing which is why I joined this forum, so I could interact with people who mayor may not have the similar interest in science as myself. I look forward to reading more into this forum.

Spread out and take your pick of subjects. There is enough to get lost in !

I am new here,

 

I started at unniversity in a two year lliberal studies "Great Books" program. Having finished that, and declared a major in philosophy, in my senior year I found that the questions I was interested in were somewhat more concrete; and changed my major to zoology. Fortunately, along the way, I had done the majors' lower division sequences in biology, chemistry, physics and math, so a great deal of backing up was not required. In the end I finished a degree in zoology with a minor in philosophy and paleontolotgy. My interest in the evolution of fish behavior led me to graduate school in oceanography. After years of grad school and post-graduate reseach I stayed on in university administration and then retired here in Hawaii.

 

I have been banned from any number of science/religion so-called debate sites because I do not suffer fools gladly enough.

My name is Evaristo. I recently finished my undergraduate studies in the field of psychology, along the way I discovered my passion for neuroscience but overall I really find and science areas very interesting. I hope I can learn and share a lot from everyone in this forum.
