Re: NS FL 9 biochem q13

Hi ds07164, That's an excellent question. I think what's going on is that choice D is tempting if you envision Crispr-CAS as a defective version of the genes required for lipid metabolism, so the question scenario would be similar to a single-knockout model. Instead, as described by the passage, Cri...

Hi mcat5122018,

Sorry that the phrasing was difficult to follow! But you've got the idea. In double displacement reactions, the ions basically swap places, and no single-element substance is formed. Thanks for checking in!

Re: Lesson 5 Video 2

Hi Ariel, The OH recording isn't up yet so I can't address anything that came up specifically in that discussion, but in general this is a tough passage/question and you're in good company in terms of finding it difficult. I'm attaching an explanation that I wrote up using nicer equation typesetting...

Re: memory

Hi khadeja,

Here's a really nice overview, which I think is cool because it also contains explanations of how we know. The short answer is that explicit memories are stored in the hippocampus, the neocortex and the amygdala, while short-term working memory is stored in the prefrontal cortex.

Re: psych disorders

In a nutshell, the idea is that people (and organizations thereof, like societies) can't be studied in the same way that inanimate objects can -- either because human beings are cognitively/emotionally/behaviorally complex in a way that we can't model accurately using the scientific method (from a m...

Re: NS FL 9 biochem q

Hi khadeja, Yeah, I think this goes beyond what you need to know as outside knowledge. It might be worth knowing something about tyrosine kinase in the context of cancer, which is kind of a gray area for MCAT knowledge where they technically require fairly minimal knowledge but going beyond that can...

Re: Biology Questions

MCAT_Retaker, Yes, both because your answers are correct and because I believe that this question should refer to the structure of a nucleosome, not of a histone core. Thanks for pointing it out! The coding of the correct answer choice should at least be a quick fix. I hate to ask a follow-up questi...
