Well since there are no posts in this folder, Ill just have to start one, who is doing communication as an elective? If any one has done it, is it easy and how long does it take? Is there any slicing or dicing or just theory?

Yeah my class is doing communication as our option, I just did a research assessment task last week on it.
Its an OK topic, not the most exciting so far, i hope we get to disect eyes and stuff :)

My teacher is the best! Our class is so laid back - more of a comedy show than a biology class

I did it last year:)
You get to disect an eye, and you talk about how and why we can see along with the pros and cons of devices which improve sight, you get to do some stuff with a CRO and talk about hearing aids and ear structure, as well as how certain bugs make noises eg. the cicada or cricket, as opposed to how we speak. You will also look at brain structure and what parts of the brain control what as well how to draw a diagram of a nerve.

im doing communication and im lovin it, its very interesting and YES were dissecting eyes tomorrow :)

the topic is basically involved in how humans, animals and insects receive information and responde to it. How we receive information (eyes, ears, nose - smell etc) and how we respond to it (ie. speaking - producing sound, and movements - escaping from predators) and also the structure of those vital parts involved in communication and how they work.

The reason why you dont see any other posts is because you've got your settings set a bit differently ;)

Go to the bottom of the LHS of the page and under the "new thread" button, is the "display options", go to "From the: " and select the option to "Beginning", then you shall see all the threads the 04ers+ made

But 04er threads are useless for 05ers finding out fellow 05ers doing the elective ;)

To top it all off they all started egging each other on to have a go. Yuk!!

Ahhh communications is interesting...Like about chameleons with marking their 'homes' I thought was pretty gross...but learning about how honey bees get to see UV is pretty cool...we haven't got to the disection bit....but earlier on in the year where we had to disect a sheep's kidney...I felt so bad :(

Bump.
Hmm, anyone here in `11?

Yeah, I'm doing communication. So easy, but I lost stupid marks in the trial for not reading questions right and not putting a heading on the graph. :/

Can't believe this thread is so dead - I thought this was the most common option!
