About me

Hi I'm Lucy and Im a Medical Student at the University of Nottingham. I absolutely love what I do, and offer Medical School Admissions mentoring to give you the best chance to experience the same feelings as me!

 Science has always been a passion of mine, and I'd also love to be able to help you out with Biology or Chemistry GCSE or A level.

Medical School Admssions Mentoring 
I understand just how exhausting the admissions process can be, having gone through it only last year myself!
Last year I achieved four offers to study Medicine, so I have a great understanding of how YOU can be successful in your application. 

I can offer

-Personal Statement advice 
-Interview preparation (particularly MMIs). I have attended four MMI interviews and have a 100% success rate. Therefore I can offer invaluable advice based on my own experiences.
-Advice on how to apply to your strengths and maximise your chances of success.

If I can help you drop me a message! I'd love to meet you.

How is an Action Potential produced in a neurone?

It is all to do with the movement of ions in and out of the neurone cell, which changes the potential difference accross the cell's membrane.  - In a neurone's resting state, the inside of membrane is more negative than the outside of the membrane. It has a RESTING MEMBRANE POTENTIAL of -70mV ...

It is all to do with the movement of ions in and out of the neurone cell, which changes the potential difference accross the cell's membrane. 

- In a neurone's resting state, the inside of membrane is more negative than the outside of the membrane. It has a RESTING MEMBRANE POTENTIAL of -70mV

1) A stimulus excites the neurone. 

2) This causes sodium channels in the membrane to open. Positive sodium channel diffuse INTO the neurone down a concentration gradient. 

3) Due to the influx of positive ions, the membane potential becomes LESS NEGATIVE. This is called depolarisation. 

4) At a membrane potential of around +40mV, sodium channels close and potassium channels open. Positive potassium ions diffuse OUT of the neurone. The membrane potential becomes MORE NEGATIVE again untill it reaches the resting poteneial of -70mV. 

This sequence of events is called an ACTION POTENTIAL.

Exocytosis is the process by which a cell secretes large substances (such as digestive enzymes or hormones) that have been produced inside the cell.

Substances produced inside the cell are processed in an organelle called the Golgi aparatus. The Golgi Apparatus exists as a series of flattened sacs of membrane. Vesicles containing the processed substances 'pinch off' the membranous sacs of the Golgi. The vesicles travel towrds the cell membrne, where they fuse to the cell membrane and are release their contents outside the cell.
