    494 words
    Brain Transplant Medical technology has seemed to advance enough so that doctors are able to perform brain transplants. So far this procedure has only been successfully performed on animals, and now doctors hope to perform this procedure on humans. I believe brain transplants should not be performed at all, and especially not on humans because of the numerous problems and side effects that could arise. Even though brain transplants can be successfully performed on animals, this does not mean tha...

    Phrenology is basically the study of personality through the study of the shape of the skull. The basis of this theory is that the brain conforms to the shape of the head and its contours. This pseudoscience says that because we have isolated where different parts of personality come from we can tell how dominant this trait would be in a persons life by the size of the piece of the brain. We have since proven that this theory is not true. Franz Joseph Gall is considered to be the founder of the ...

    Terrible Fall It was November 17, 1988 and it was getting cold and dark. I had just gotten a bike for my birthday. It was big and red. I took it out riding and I was going to go ride down the street. I was going back and forth down the street and all of a sudden my front wheel turns and I could no longer fight to keep the rocket spinning tire as I then fell off over the handlebars and landed straight on my face and head.
