a medical education definitely results in some serious brain remodeling. it has some intended consequences, as i tried to explain here, but also some unintended consequences. for example, riding in the car today with my twelve year old daughter and listening to the music she loves, my daughter says 'mom, i don't even want to know what you think of those lyrics*.'
normal mom brain thinks, well, those are some pretty angry and depressing thoughts he's expressing...
doctor mom brain thinks, that young man is about to get a vocal cord polyp.
