Julia Araujo Posted January 12 Share Posted January 12 Hello dear colleagues! Following up our introduction posts, here we go with Dr. Ashley Horner's amazing idea for discussion! For a moment, I just though on how much I could connect "addiction", "curriculum design" and "major career transitions”. Indeed, those are topics which may seem to be not that much related. Of course, my point could be on our colleague's own meeting post. After all, she was the one to present to us an incredibly fascinating life journey that already brings the trio along. (I loved to hear about her story!) Although, bringing up my own passion for interdisciplinarity, I would like to share a bit of it by summarising those three topics as a single text. Shall we go? Academically speaking, the study of “addiction” can contemplate Chemistry, Biology and Sociology throughout its development. Seen as major areas, for an instance, they can become Biochemistry, Neuroscience and Ethics: altogether in the development of a scientific research. The subjects chosen might not be of my understanding. (Please, Dr. Horner, help me with your expertise!) Nonetheless, my post ought to get us visualizing a path. In other words, from a major area to their specialisations, one travels to an unique and incredible design of a curriculum, of a life journey unique as much as it only represents this single person’s biography. Sometimes, in fact, our transitions in career - our brushes that paint, in a different trajectory, the curriculum that is being designed - condense challenges and setbacks. Although, we pick up the pieces of topics to be discussed and learned just to find ourselves in the midst of a community of Neuroscience passionates from plural curriculums and careers. For an instance, the transition in the text’s content can lead us to thinking how apart we actually are from change - from the mountains climbed and the rivers crossed - and from Chemistry, Biology and Sociology that shall be split, transitioned and designed into the components that paint this text. My own passion for interdisciplinarity, particularly, relates the reasoning of areas subjacent to Neuroscience as it is our common goal in SfN. Furthermore, newer views of “addiction" (e.g.) can come from a different career, from a curriculum that contemplates more of Maths, Physics and Chemistry into our classrooms. For that matter, it’s about our cultural (background) diversity - here at the group of Community Leaders - that makes it possible to get three single topics and amplify them into a three-dimensional discussion as I ask you all: what do you have to say?
