About me

Hi! I’m Sara, I’m a second year Neuroscience student at KCL. I am fascinated by anything that relates to the mind, its relationship to the brain and the body, as well as humans in general. I consider my best quality to be my ability to empathize and connect with people. I am a curious and passionate student and I try to share my interests with the people around me. I’ve always seen studying as the most intriguing thing to do and I see it as a fundamental part of my life rather than a duty. I started to help my peers with the understanding of certain subjects and modules during my high school years and I found that to be very rewarding, as well as useful; I would in fact have to dig deeper into the comprehension of some topics to be able to explain them correctly to others. My main approach to studying in general is to break down complicated topics in basic and clear concepts so to have the tools to approach the bigger picture. I try to work in the same way with my students and create a teaching method that also fits their learning patterns; I, above all, believe that anything can be interesting as long as it’s formulated and presented in the right way. My final goal would be to nurture a sincere interest and passion for the subject studied as well as the gratification of understanding it.

About my sessions

I am a very dedicated and organized person. I take my duties very seriously. When preparing for a session I would take into consideration the level required, the curriculum and the exams my student is expected to undertake. I would then write down a schedule with a particular attention to the time we have for each session. I would start with a focus on the theoretical side of the module, trying to find as many connections to other things I know they are studying to help memorize the content; I would try to make it as interesting and interactive as possible. After I feel that my student as a good general understanding of the topic, I would move on to the practical application of the knowledge making use of past papers. I would then test their knowledge and preparation on more past papers or tests. I might also, depending on their needs and free-time, leave them some material to work on until our next session to make sure they keep the information fresh in their minds. I tend to try to inspire them to love the subject as much as possible, or at least find some connection with things they find interesting.

Questions Sara has answered

Cellular structure of the brain

The cellular structure of the brain is a relatively recent discovery and it's Santiago Ramòn y Cajal that recognised it; in addition to this he recognised the neuron as the basic unit. Three main elements can be recognized in the neuron: the soma, the axon and the dendrites. The soma is the cell body where the nucleus is located. The axon is the electrically active part of the neuron, it is in fact through the axon (from the axon hillock) that the action potential is spread to be able to reach other neurons and send information. The dendrites are processes attached to the soma that have as main function that of increasing the surface area of the neuron so to be able to receive inputs from the other neurons. Neurons communicate between each other and can either diverge on many other neurons or many information can converge on one single neuron. The complicated pathways that result from this give rise to the neural networks. The cellular structure of the brain is a relatively recent discovery and it's Santiago Ramòn y Cajal that recognised it; in addition to this he recognised the neuron as the basic unit.
