After five days to acclimate to Ann Arbor, I officially started graduate school this past Tuesday. So far, my week has consisted of running around the psychology building locating classrooms, labs, offices, and the keys to open them. Nothing notable has happened, though I did get to mount rat-brain slices today. It will be even more satisfying when they are my rats.
For the next several days, I will be busy reading papers, hoping to gather more explicit ideas for a first year project. More on that later.
