neural tapioca

Just came off exam #2 of 5. Three hours of full-throttle typing and a total circus getting started (crashing laptops, someone coming in ten minutes late, an extra person in the exam room). Next one's 9am tomorrow. Right now I'm reading information but it just bounces off -- nothing's sticking. I think the brain must be like a muscle: it burns glucose, it gets stronger with exercise, and it gets tired. We have all this research into making your muscles stronger. Is anyone researching workouts for your brain?

OK, time to sign off before I start sounding like Faulkner's stream-of-consciousness writing in The Sound and the Fury.
