a: Conduction ~
b: laying of bags

What:

All these idea explain through cooking. A very informative article.

a: Action potential conduction without myelin ~
b: walking with small steps

What:

"Action potential conduction without myelin is like walking down the sidewalk in small steps, heel-to-toe, using every inch of the sidewalk to creep along. Conduction with myelin, is like skipping down the sidewalk. In myelinated axons, action potentials skip from node to node and this is called salutatory conduction."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
