The present essay takes up this argument and offers examples of how identity is precluded by Frye's system as outlined in Anatomy of Criticism. Structure Vs. Identity In Frye's system, the organizing principles that give literature coherence and structure are derived from the myths of ancient Greece and the archetypal imagery found in the Bible....   [tags: Anatomy of Criticism Essays]

Visual Information - Visual information is seen because light passes through the cornea and is focused by the lens as an inverted image on the retina (Ellis, 2004). The retina is composed of photoreceptor cells; rods and cones with the greatest density of cones situated within the fovea, thus vision is sharpest for images and information projected to the fovea (Ellis, 2004). Subsequently visual information of lateralized foveal stimuli projects to the cerebral hemisphere within the brain. In the brain, the left visual hemifield projects to the right hemisphere and the right visual hemifield projects to the left hemisphere (Lavidor, Ellis, Shillcock & Bland, 2001)....   [tags: Anatomy, The Retina ] 1748 words

What about the Children? Are There Long-Term Consequences to Earlier and Greater Exposure to Noise? - Harmful noises are everywhere. “The National Institute of Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) reports that approximately 30 million Americans are exposed to daily noise levels that will likely lead to hearing loss” (Daniel, 2007, p. 226). Excessive noise exposure can lead to permanent hearing loss, tinnitus, poor communication abilities, and reduced self-esteem; however, it can be prevented in many situations. This paper will discuss how much noise exposure can occur before it becomes hazardous, the long-term effects of noise exposure at an early age, and the primary reasons why preventable socioacousis occurs....   [tags: Acoustics, Anatomy]

Sex and Gender - Sex and Gender Arianna Stassinopoulos wrote in the 1973 book The Female Woman: "It would be futile to attempt to fit women into a masculine pattern of attitudes, skills and abilities and disastrous to force them to suppress their specifically female characteristics and abilities by keeping up the pretense that there are no differences between the sexes" (Microsoft Bookshelf). In her statement we see a cultural feminist response to the dominant liberal feminism of the 1970s. Liberal feminism de-emphasized gender differences, claiming that women were the equals of men and that this would be obvious if only they were offered the same opportunities as men with no special privileges necessary....   [tags: Anatomy Papers]

The Important Role of Skeletal Muscles in the Human Body - Skeletal muscles play a huge role in the way our bodies function because without muscles, our bones would not properly be held together. Most of the body’s muscle tissue is skeletal muscle. It interacts with the skeleton to move body parts. It’s long, thin cells are called fibers and they have more than one nucleus. Their structure gives them a striped look. The muscles are considered voluntary, which means that the contractions can be controlled. A skeletal muscle contains bundles of muscle cells....   [tags: medical, anatomy, physiology] 2239 words

Medical Research - LCN2 expression in normal liver. Healthy rat livers were analyzed for LCN2 expression by Western blot (Suppl. Fig. 1A), RT-PCR (Suppl. Fig. 1B) and immunohistochemistry (Suppl. Fig. 1C). Since LCN2 is naturally expressed in tissues prone to microorganism exposure [9, 29], we used samples from organs expressing abundant quantities of LCN2 (lung, kidney, heart and trachea) as positive controls. In this analysis we found that LCN2 expression in normal liver was relatively low but still detectable by RT-PCR and that in liver cells positive for LCN2 in immunohistochemistry were only bile duct epithelia....   [tags: Health, Human Anatomy, Diseases] 1772 words

Percutaneous Transluminal Coronary Angioplasty - Introduction In 1977, percutaneous transluminal coronary angioplasty (PTCA) was introduced to dilate narrow coronary arteries. Over the years, the development of the procedure knocked down major anatomical obstacles. Typically the procedure involves a small incision into the leg, a catheter is inserted through the groin vein and is then steered to the blocked coronary vessel via a guide wire. On the tip of the catheter is a deflated balloon. Once at the congested region of the artery the balloon is inflated, causing plaque to compress against the artery wall, dilating the artery and restoring blood to flow [1]....   [tags: Anatomy, Coronary Arteries] 2255 words

How The Brain Works - Current research shows that mental events cause physical events, and scientists believe examining single nerves is the key to understanding how the brain works as a complete unit. Understanding the brain at the nerve cell level will allow scientists to understand how human consciousness works (Blakeslee, 1992). Furthermore, the brain's thalamus is identified as the possible sensory connector because it fires 40 impulses per second that sweep through the entire brain (Blakeslee, 1995a).

Dopamine's role in the Psychological Architecture of Pleasure and Reward - Dopamine's role in the psychological architecture of pleasure and reward indicates that it is a major element in the determination of reinforcement (Arias-Carrión & Pöppel, 2007, p. 484). This role was postulated from the discovery of dopamine in reward pathways that are found originating from the midbrain (2). From these discoveries, it has been shown that dopamine has a profound impact upon the existence of “reward-seeking behaviors” (Arias-Carrión & Pöppel, 2007, p. 481). A 2006 study done by Mathias Pessiglione and his colleagues demonstrated that subjects given L-DOPA, a precursor to dopamine, were more likely to remember decisions that led to rewards and continue to make those decisions (3)....   [tags: Anatomy, The Brain, Midbrain] 1608 words

Formation of the Trophectoderm Lineage - ‘Formation of the trophectoderm lineage. The first cell fate decision in mammalian development’. The crucial outcome of the early mammalian development is the attachment of the embryo to the uterine lining. The cell population that will support this attachment, the trophectoderm (TE), is distinguished from the inner cell mass (ICM) at the blastocyst stage and this separation represents the earliest lineage restriction. Up to the 8-cell stage, the embryo is characterized by a loose structure, but then compaction follows, a phenomenon mediated by increased cell-cell adhesion (tight junctions, increased E-cadherin expression)....   [tags: Anatomy, Cell Division] 1629 words

It is found mainly in the red muscle tissue, but it is also present in the heart and brain. Normally, creatine is acquired through regular dietary intake of products such as meat and fish, which are high in protein. However, when dietary intake is low creatine can be produced from natural amino acids such as glycine, arginine, and methionine in the liver, kidneys, and pancreas.

The right atrium pumps oxygen-depleted blood from the body to the right ventricle and then on to the lungs. The left atrium sends oxygen-rich blood from the lungs to the left ventricle and then pumps this blood out to the body. Contraction of the atria is followed by the contraction of the large ventricles. The valves of the heart serve as check valves, closing to control blood flow.
