    but also made me realize my interest in biomedical engineering and the mechanics behind each valuable device. In the words of Albert Einstein, "Never memorize something that you can look up"; Biomedical engineering to me seems a perfect blend of research and tangible work. This interdisciplinary field seeks to fill the gap between engineering and medicine. As they say, "Any sufficiently advanced technology is indistinguishable form of magic", it fascinates me how basic physical principles can

  • How Does Marijuana Affect Social Health

    818 Words  | 4 Pages

    Research findings on how chronic cannabis use affects brain structure, for example, have been inconsistent. It may be that the effects are too subtle for reliable detection by current techniques. A similar challenge arises in studies of the effects of chronic marijuana use on brain function. Although imaging studies (functional MRI; fMRI) in chronic users do show some consistent alterations, the relation of these changes to cognitive functioning is less clear. This uncertainty may stem from
