1ero, entendamos los reflejos.
Evolutivamente ha sido necesario que existan respuestas motoras no mediadas por el cerebro, es decir, integradas en la médula espinal. Muchas respuestas de retiro (que permiten la supervivencia) solo requieren unas cuantas neuronas.
Definamos REFLEJO como una:
📋Respuesta motora.
📋Estereotípica (es decir, siempre igual).
📋Generada por estímulo de receptores.
En simple: Un reflejo obedece una ley de eficiencia evolutiva, solo usa la mínima cantidad de neuronas necesarias.

1/ I recently realized that to take advantage of #medtwitter I need to change my approach. So here goes

About me: I’m 31, born & raised in NYC...which means I learned how to drive at 26, I have a GoogleDoc of celeb sightings, & I run into people everywhere, including @ work.
2/ My education includes @bxsciencealumni
for HS, @BrownUniversity for college, @ColumbiaPostbac for premed, and finally @nymedcollege for med school.
3/ Why a postbac? Because in college I studied Econ & Slavic Studies. I actually spent my junior year in London at @LSE_GC and the following summer in St. Petersburg, Russia.

TBH I don’t think I could have gotten thru #premed as an undergrad and I loved my time at Columbia.

Like many of you, I’m an unapologetic book nerd. I love a good recommendation and love sharing after I enjoy a book.

So check it:

Just finished this book by our very own #medtwitter @AaronLBerkowitz. Here’s my unsolicited review.

(Spoiler alert: I loved it.)
In full transparency, @AaronLBerkowitz told me (via Twitter) about his recently published book. And because:

1. I like books.
2. I believe #supportisaverb
3. It was on Audible.

I immediately used my November @audible_com credit and gave it a try.

I’ll admit—I’m a fan of @AaronLBerkowitz’ Neuro textbook. But I had no idea what to expect out of THIS particular book.

I mean, even with reviews from everyone from Dr. Paul Farmer himself to @drsanjaygupta, the book nerd in me was skeptical.
