Jetpacks: Seriously, where is my jetpack? They have been promising us jetpacks for nearly a hundred years. “They”, of course, being the Germans. Remember all that stock footage of experimental rocket backpacks gone wrong? German men blasting 20 feet into the air with zero control over their direction or landing? The Jetsons? The Rocketeer? How […]
Despite weeks of preparation, scouting, and a flawless gameplan, Team Carmichael knew it was chasing a nearly impossible goal. Sweeping the gold medals had never been done at the Neurology Picnic, and it would take more than just physical intimidation and the insemination of fear in the eyes of every man, woman, child, and clown […]

Now, I’ve never been one to gloat, unless of course you consider this journal to be an extension of me, in which case my entire existence would be based on […]

For the record, and for MG’s peace of mind, photographing a van while traveling approximately 20 mph in my Honda also qualifies as my “death-defying” car stunt for the year 2006. It was difficult, but despite doubts, I was able to top […]
While advancing the field of neuroscience through the development of innovative neural repair strategies is the main goal in the Carmichael Lab, we also recognize that personal health and fitness are key ingredients to academic success. Athletics are nothing new for members of the Carmichael Lab. After all, Dr. Carmichael himself was once a legend […]
Over winter break, Richard and I spent a few hours going through some of his family home videos that his dad had recently transfered to DVD. Though Richard, in general, is a person of little to interest to me, except for when I need a ride somewhere or when I’m bored during winter break, I […]
