So, ISC has officially begun. We had our first exam, physics practical today. It was funny the way everyone was absolutely certain we were going to get concave-convex but they gave us single convex! I mean the last week was crazy, with people scurrying around for focal lengths and learning up elaborate manipulative techniques(I mean, doing the experiment is simpler isn’t it?). Okay, so that’s done. There wasn’t much scope for manipulation in any case!
But I really think it’s torture to sit in that lab for a full 3 hours without being allowed to get out. I mean for the first time in my life I was wishing it was hotter! Not that I don’t like the weather, but the volume of a kidney is just about 450 cc and if you don’t sweat the water content in your body is so high that ADH secretion goes down and the distal convoluted tubules become impermeable to water! And even if you don’t understand any of the bio I rattled off I guess you get what I mean! Oh, and to make things worse, they made us sit an extra half an hour to make us watch the papers being packed. Human rights violation! :-P

even if d ADH level s low, d exam stress wil stimulate d sympathetic nervous system which wil cause vasoconstriction of d renal blood vessels.. Reducin renal blood flow.. Which may further cause release of Renin from d JGA.. increasin blood volume further... Maybe., who knows.. :-)
