I wish you all the best. Do keep yourself busy over the year, though, should you have difficulties acquiring the aid. Really does help with job applications and such to say, "Well, goll-gee, I when I worked at xyz, I gained job experience abc, and I can now pqr ten times better than any other applicant." XD
Okay, so I exaggerated. We do know a fair bit about cell biology. Actually, we know a lot. Like mega lots. Like 'oh my god I wish we didn't know so much so that exams would be easier' lots. But our knowledge still has holes and, where it is presumably complete, contradiction is rife. With the nervous system and the brain, however, the former very much predominates. Years have we known about the brain's function, and still, no one can quite sum up the mechanism of memory or of thought. We have ideas, but no concrete 'this is what happens when you think' explanation.
