"While layers of the golgi may look like the endoplasmic reticulum, they have a very different job. The
golgi body is a series of tubes that package material for transport around the cell. So the golgi body is like a gift wrapping shop for protein."
Santa's elves package the gifts then ship them off to the sleigh to be sent to all the boys and girls
The Title"METAPHOR AND CREATIVITY IN LEARNING SCIENCE"
The Abstract:"While much work has examined how students think and and learn with metaphors, relatively little research has focused on thinking about metaphors, that is, thinking critically about current metaphors and considering creative alternatives. This paper presents results from a classroom based study that involves metaphor in science learning and incorporates a novel computational technique for analyzing metaphors in text. The results here show that students' ability to engage with a metaphor's deep, structural aspects significantly predicts ability to generate creative, novel metaphors. Not only do these results carry implications for how best to incorporate metaphor into instruction, but they also draw attention to the ability to reason critically about metaphors as an important area for future research."
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.
