During J-Term 2015 I did an Independent Study on Anatomy and Physiology with Dr. Louie because it is interesting and, for me, fun. My main project was dissecting a rat. Surprisingly, I had fun and learned a lot. For instance, I learned that I enjoy dissection, it was cool to hold a heart in my hand, I learned to be patient while dissecting the brain which was really difficult. It was cool to take the intestines apart to see how long they are – in this case, about 3 1/2 feet. I encourage everyone to try a dissection sometime, it was really interesting.
