These are photos from mid 2008. My close friend Jose Luis "El Pepón" and me had to make our thesis project in the human medicine faculty... despite it was a thesis for electronic engineering. I will not mention the gross aspects of this (human corpses, blood, medicine experiments, rats...). Sometimes it was hard, sometimes funny, sometimes painful,
most of the times
sometimes disgusting, and also sometimes memorable. This is a little, the best of all, of what I saw at the Human Medicine Faculty:
This is a Grass Poligraph for capturing ECG signals. The computer shows our Matlab application. The little lovely stuffed rat is Romy, my lab rat. He was there many times with us.
Doctor's explanation of heart's signal generation. Now I can barely remember what this was about.
Lab's reactives. In this lab they extract chemicals from plants.
Evita, a chemist of the lab, is teaching ROmy how to work with the reactives.
These are Evita, Romy and El Pepón. Behind them is the extractor fan you use when you're working with potential noxious fumes.
Chuchuhuasi leaves! The day I took these photos, the lab got a LOT of chuchuhuasi leaves for making experiments. They were happy (This leaves were from Ucayali).
I ended up my Human Medicine Faculty period few days after this. A medicine faculty is an entire different world inside. Deep inside, after all, I will miss some things, despite how
weird my thesis project could be.Wanna see more?
(warning: some gross details included)
