Some of you may be wondering, “Where the heck did that science-y trans guy go?”
Well, I’ve been around, busy as usual, but I have been working on a blog post for weeks now, since early December. I thought it would be an easy-breezy slam dunk kind of blog post, the kind I could write in an evening after reading a few papers from the scientific literature.
It didn’t turn out that way though. The more I got into the literature, the more I needed to read so I could understand the data, and the more I read, the less I understood it.
The topic has to do with the brain, and my own brain has always had trouble understanding itself. Neurobiology, neural physiology, neuroanatomy… anything that has to do with the form and function of the central and peripheral nervous systems – the brain and the nerves – is pretty much Greek to me, so to speak. I just don’t get it.
So as I work to comprehend and understand a topic in what has always been my worst subject, I ask for your patience. Please stay with me and I promise I will deliver something soon, depending on your definition of ‘soon.’
In the meantime, I hope y’all are well and having a great start to the New Year!
