3.2 Consciousness of the body

Phenomenological theorists distinguish between the subjective body (as lived and experienced) and the objective body (as observed and scientifically investigated). These are not two different bodies as such (phenomenologists pride themselves on overcoming dualisms!); rather they are different facets of our experience and consciousness.

The body-subject, or subjective body, is the body-as-it-is-lived. I do not simply possess a body; I am my body (Merleau-Ponty, 1962

3.5.1 Hair cells transform mechanical energy into neural signals

The tectorial membrane runs parallel to the basilar membrane, so when the basilar membrane vibrates up and down in response to motion at the stapes, so does the tectorial membrane. However, as shown in Figure 14, the displacement of the membranes causes them to pivot about different hinging points and this creates a shearing force bet

2.3 Short-term and long-term planning

Clearly an important step in planning your work is actually constructing a plan. We suggest you carry out short-term (3 months) and long-term (3 years) planning. The long-term planning will make sure you keep your eye on the big picture, remembering what your PhD enquiry is about and making sure you do not spend too much time on what seems important now. Obviously, it is harder to see how things will happen during the later stages, and they will not be as clearly focused as the earlier ones;
