Crossing Flies to Determine the Inheritance Pattern of Wing Type and Eye Color in Drosophila Melanogaster

- Studying Fruit flies helps scientists understand biological phenomena that take place in other more complex organisms. For instance most of the non-Mendelian and simple Mendelian inheritance events that apply to Drosophila apply to other organisms including humans (Mudher/2008). According to Brooker (2009) in his book “Genetics Analysis and Principals” Heredity is the study of how traits are passed down from parents to offspring. Studying Heredity in Biology is called genetics (Klug/1997).

- Amblyopia This paper provides a brief description of amblyopia and discusses current research regarding the motion pathway in individuals with amblyopia. Amblyopia is a condition in which visual acuity in one eye is greatly reduced. It is caused by lack of stimulation or disuse during visual development (Rose, 1998). Because the eye is not fully developed at birth (Jarvis, 1992, as cited in Rose, 1998), infants need stimulation to complete the visual neural pathway. When one or both eyes are inhibited, for example due to misalignment of one eye (strabismus) or a large difference in refractive power between two eyes (anisometropia), the neural pathway for the inhibited eye develops abnorma...   [tags: Medicine Medical Eye Papers]

Poe's Narratives

- Poe has given his narrator in “The Tell Tale Heart” multiple currently diagnosable psychological disorders: bipolarity, obsessive compulsive disorder, psychopathy, and paranoia. Although he is a psychopath by Hare’s definition, among the disorders, the narrator’s sense of fear is the most motivating. On a first reading, it might seem that the narrator committed murder because of his unjustified hatred towards the victim, or more specifically, the victim’s “evil eye.” And later, he confesses to his crime because of the overwhelming guilt he feels which causes him to hear the supernatural beating of the dead man’s heart....   [tags: Literary Analysis]

Color Vision Deficiency

- Famous British playwright Oscar Wilde once said, “Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways.” Now, imagine a world without the existence of color. It would be a sad, dark place to be. However this is a world that many people are forced to live in today. Individuals with color vision deficiency live in a muted world that normal sighted people will never fully comprehend. In order to truly appreciate the beautiful nature of color one must have a general understanding of the history behind the discovery of the function of perceiving colors....   [tags: perception, colorblindness, Dalton, daltonism]

The Weak Theory of Evolution

- The Weak Theory of Evolution One of the most contested issues in the creation/evolution debate is the origin of the eye.

Charles Darwin started the controversy with an argument that is widely quoted by both sides: To suppose that the eye with all its inimitable contrivances for adjusting the focus to different distances, for admitting different amounts of light, and for the correction of spherical and chromatic aberration, could have been formed by na...   [tags: Argumentative Persuasive Argument Essays]

(Matt.19.9). Yet this homily is perhaps better known through the compressed poetry of the King James translation. "If thine eye offend thee, pluck it out."

The Narrator in The Tell-Tale Heart

- The Narrator in The Tell-Tale Heart Through the first person narrator, Edgar Allan Poe's "The Tell-Tale Heart" illustrates how man's imagination is capable of being so vivid that it profoundly affects people's lives. The manifestation of the narrator's imagination unconsciously plants seeds in his mind, and those seeds grow into an unmanageable situation for which there is no room for reason and which culminates in murder. The narrator takes care of an old man with whom the relationship is unclear, although the narrator's comment of "For his gold I had no desire" (Poe 34) lends itself to the fact that the old man may be a family member whose death would monetarily benefit t...   [tags: Tell-Tale Heart Essays]
