Ever since the beginning of college, I have been highly intrigued by the complexity of the nervous system; how simple cellular components organize themselves to create the highly complex organization. Although, any life form is capable of processing information using energy, the nervous system is the most efficient biological entity that exhibits the highest efficacy of information processing. All of the capabilities of the nervous system (e.g. taking conscious decisions) are the consequence of its complexity. I want to study how nervous system demonstrates those extraordinary capabilities through the work of neural circuits, neural networks, and various cellular events. I also want to learn about the genetics and molecular biology behind those events.
It has been six years since I am in Dhaka University. This stage of life is the most precious because our activities during this period determine the rest of our life. But I could not say I have laid the foundation for future in the last six years.
In this talk Julian Treasure speaks about nothing but "how to speak". I feed it will guide me in future to deliver any speech in front of an audience, and as a result, I am storing it here on my blog. He talks about 7 sins that should be avoided during any speech and 4 virtues that should be followed which he sums up into HAIL- H for honesty, A for authenticity, I for integrity and L for Love. Again he also teaches six exercises that help deliver a great talk.
While talking about natural selection, the person who inevitably comes into the scene is none but the most renowned, and simultaneously criticized British Naturalist of eighteenth century, Charles Darwin. Most of us know him for his connection with evolution. In reality, the birth of the concept of evolution took place far earlier. However he added a very exquisite insight to explain evolution that is Natural Selection. The diversity of organisms on earth follows the rule of natural selection and is determined by interactions of living organisms among themselves and with non-living world.
I read a book during my school days about Jagadish Chandra Bose which inspired me to look at the surrounding with questions in mind. The greatest Bengali scientist has been the encouragement for my interest in science since then. 20th November was his birthday. The occasion provoked me to remember this great person by going through his contribution. I found this two videos on youtube about him.
During his last days Albert Einstein devoted himself more to the thinking of social welfare than to the theories of science. He took his concentration away from the equations and thought more about philosophy, psychology, belief and their relation with human life. He wrote this letter just one year before he died which gives us idea about his notion towards religion. This renowned letter is preserved and was sold in an ebay auction for millions of US dollars.
Here is an image of the original letter and a transcript of the letter hereafter.
