Re: Diagnostic ChemPhys Discrete #28

Great question! This can be a hard concept for people to wrap their heads around. When we typically think about sound, we think about it traveling through the air when talking, singing, etc, but this is not the fastest way for sound to travel! Sound waves actually travel the slowest through gases, f...

Re: AAMC Section Bank P/S #73, #77, and #99

Hi! 73: So negative priming is the idea that the subject has been asked to ignore a stimulus, but is then asked to attend to that stimulus. The processing of this stimulus right after ignoring it is somewhat impaired. You are correct that this is more related to implicit memory. In Alzheimer's Disea...

Re: AAMC Section Bank P/S #52 and CARS Pack 1 #21

Hi! Yes, fMRI resolution is better than PET scan resolution so choosing between them depends on how specific the information you're looking for is. For example, like you mentioned PET scans are commonly used in detecting cancer, whereas if you wanted to evaluate the exact impacts of a stroke on vari...

Re: FL1- Passage 5 #23

Hi! So this is a question that takes multiple steps and the use of figures to arrive at the correct answer. If I understand correctly, the piece you are confused about is how they figured out the 1 mol catopril/1 mol NaOH ratio used in the final equation at the end of the explanation. The key here i...

Re: AAMC Sample Test, C/P, Q.23

Hi Jenny, It sounds like you got a little stuck in the weeds here. What this question is looking at is what pressure H2 gas vs. ambient air is exerting on the fluid. If the fluid in the buret is higher, this means H2 gas in the buret is exerting less pressure on the fluid in comparison to the ambien...

Re: AAMC Section Bank P/S #52 and CARS Pack 1 #21

Hi! P/S #52: The difference between PET scans and fMRIs can be tricky to remember. They are both scans that are looking at brain function, but they take different approaches. A PET scan is looking at where glucose is being used as an indicator for what neurons are firing/working. An fMRI detects cha...

Re: AAMC FL#2 B/B Q43

Hi! I understand the confusion, the wording to this question is not the best. When saying that the change does not create or eliminate a stop codon I think the question stem is trying to stress that it is not causing a nonsense mutation where you would have a premature stop codon and a potentially v...

Re: AAMC FL#2 B/B Q2

Hi Jenny! I don't know of a resource where all the cell types are listed out specifically comparing their proliferative capabilities, however a general understanding should be sufficient. Like you said. skin cells and the lining of the GI tract are some of the most proliferative cells which makes se...

Re: AAMC Section Bank P/S #3

Hi, great question! So the key information to focus on in the passage is that there was a strong negative correlation between the number of errors in phase 2 and successful completion of pilot training. This would indicate that fewer errors in phase 2 measuring attention capabilities is associated w...

Re: Section exams vs FLs

Hey Jenny! So when you look at the full length exams tab in resources, you'll see that there are 10 full length exams there. For full length exams #6-10 you have the option to take these as full lengths, or to divide them up and practice them in individual sections, found under the section exams tab...
