Ear Development - Ear development, like all other sensory systems, evolved from lesser structures in lesser animals. Research based on the work of Andrea Streit however places the burden of ear development solely on vertebrates (1H). Marine vertebrates evolved the first set of mechanoreceptors that could be classified as detecting sound since sound waves and pressure waves are nearly the same forms of energy. Once animals evolved to the stage where land traversing was possible the receptors were unable to accomplish the same tasks as they once did underwater, leading to the beginning of the development of the ear as we know it today....   [tags: Anatomy] 1050 words

Anatomy of a Research Paper - Wodge: A Definition "I don't want a great wodge of prose, but about double what we have at present." (Ezra Pound, 1913) The word wodge, whose meaning can be surmised from its heavy, lumpish sound, is not particularly common in American usage. It is, however, a wonderful word that ought to be given more recognition. It offers a more vivid description than its synonyms, for example, blob, cluster, or clump. A highly descriptive word, wodge is developed from a combination of the words wad and wedge, the sound of which evokes images of weight and sedentariness....   [tags: essays research papers] 649 words

Humans and Tails - Humans and Tails When studying the anatomy of humans in biology textbooks, many authors marvel over the complexity of the human body. Attributes such as our opposable thumbs, bipedal mobility, and cognitive abilities are extolled; however, humans are at a serious disadvantage. We lack major appendages that would aid in daily living; they could greatly improve quality of life. One such appendage is a tail; understandably, some humans have grown accustomed to their current mode of living and would shy away from any change despite its advantages....   [tags: Anatomy Persuasive Argumentative Essays]

Book Report on Martin Esslin's an Anatomy of Drama - Martin Esslin, an established drama director, scholar, and critic, approaches his analysis of drama by drawing on his practical experience as a director of plays. Esslin implicitly assumes that drama is the most elite of the artistic genres when he directly declares the purpose of his book, which is to answer the question "why should those concerned with art resort to drama rather than any other form of communication?" Esslin then immediately poses another question that he seems to take as a prerequisite for the first question: "What is the underlying, basic nature of dramatic form and what is it that drama can express better than any other form of communication?" Esslin's book consists of eleven chapters each of which touches on a dramatic phenomenon or critical issue....   [tags: Book Reviews] 1043 words

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?

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]

Another interesting finding was the connection between cortical areas, such as that of prefrontal, medial frontal, and posterior parietal regions, which provided inputs to the cerebellum via pontine nuclei (Prevosto & Sommer, 2013).

Maintenance of CHH methylation sites CHH methylation, otherwise known as asymmetric methylation, can be RdDM-dependent where DRM2 and other players in the RdDM pathway regulate DNA methylation (Dinh et al., 2013). DRM1 and 2 are cytosine metyltransferases that are homologs to mammalian Dmnt3. Drm2 mutants are short with twisted leaves and can be rescued when DRM2 is transformed into these plants, showing that DNA methylation can be easily reestablished when the correct signals are present (Chan et al., 2006)....   [tags: anatomy, heterochromatin]

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]

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.

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

Each organ system has an important function in the body. There is one system that is not as well known as other; it is the integumentary system. Most people know the organs of the integumentary system, but they do not know that these organs work together to form this system.

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

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

Pain is a common human experience and can emanate from injury and illness. There are two main types of pain; acute pain is short-lived, lasting for minutes or several days and its onset often takes place rapidly. It results from the activation of pain nerve endings or nociceptors either by internal or external pain stimuli....   [tags: Anatomy, The Central Nervous System] 2035 words
