Day 24

           Elaine and I got right to work with the NMR machine so it didn't have time to break on us. The images I took with the older NMR  were not very good. I say this because if you change a certain variable on each image and write down the intensity if the same pixel on each image, those intensities should form a exponential decay or loss if you graph them. However, the results I got with the older NMR machine were pretty much gibberish. So we started re-taking those images to get the proper graphs. Unfortunately after spending the morning taking images and plotting the points, those graphs were also gibberish.
          Dr. Hornak deduced that there must be an automatic scaling feature to the program which makes comparing the intensities of various images to each other nearly impossible. So when we left at the end of the day, Dr. Hornak was working on trying to find someone who might know how to turn off this feature that we think exists.
