Thalamocortical

Today's word of the day is "thalamocortical", as in "The anterior cingulotomy, the subcaudate tractotomy and the interior capsulotomy entail an interruption of the thalamocortical paralimbic frontal network." Use "thalamocortical" three times today (or is it 21?) in context to make it part of your vocabulary.

I want to know when you are going to have the words in the definition as words of the day. I feel like I am a few centuries behind on them.

Okay, today's word of the day is cingulotomy. The example usage is: "MRI-guided stereotactic cingulotomy consists of lesioning the white matter deep to the cingulate gyrus."

Yep. Definitely a few centuries behind on the word of the day.

Having only recently herniated all of my current thalamocortical sense of self-sufficiency, I have determined to be more accepting of other person's thalamocortical shortcomings. Thus, after this thalamocortical epiphany, I look forward to ever more thalamocortical interactions with all of my thalamocortical peers. Thus, I am now 5/14ths of the way to owning this word for my very self.

Somehow, I lost "jeriatricks," so now I will sign this as...

Maybe you lost jeriatricks because you spelled it differently before.. "geriatriques", I think.
