    1504 Words  | 4 Pages

    Narrative as Determination of the Future Anterior Narrative, it seems banal to observe, opens a space. This space is not so much a place of play for unlimited possibilities (although in the best of possible worlds it might yet be) as somewhere determined, always, in advance, by the future anterior: what will have happened and how it will already have taken place lure us through stories to their ends, become the end that shines through from the very start. Reading for the ending: in narrative

    B. Significance The anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) is one of four major ligaments of the knee joint: anterior (front) cruciate ligament, posterior (back) cruciate ligament (PCL), medial (inside) collateral ligament (MCL), and lateral (outside) collateral ligament (LCL). The ACL primarily works to coordinate function, promote overall stability of the knee, and prevent any unnecessary forward movement of the tibia. Many studies have attempted to determine why the ACL is associated with a high incidence

    require pivoting are especially at risk. General Information “The anterior cruicate ligament is a strong band that arises from the posterior middle part of the lateral condyle of the femur, it passes anteriorly and inferiorly between the condyle, and is attached to the depression in front of the intercondylar eminence of the tibia (Mosby‘s page. 105).” The tear of the A.C.L is described as a partial or complete rupture of the anterior cruciate ligament. The A.C.L. does not repair by itself. It is so

  • Functional Anatomy Of Anterior Cruciate Ligament

    739 Words  | 2 Pages

    Anterior Cruciate Ligament Functional Anatomy of the Anterior Cruciate Ligament: The knee joint is a complex organ which allows for a multidirectional movement of the joint including an internal/external rotation, flexion/extension and a variety of valgus movements. The direction of the knee joint movement is regularly controlled by the ligaments and geometric constraints of the articular surfaces (Woo et al., 1999). The movements of the knee can occur in different directions which gives each ligament

  • The Hypothalamus and The Anterior Pituitary

    601 Words  | 2 Pages

    The Hypothalamus and The Anterior Pituitary The hypothalamus is a part of the brain that has direct control over the release of hormones from the pituitary gland. These hormones are called regulatory hormones. They are considered regulatory hormones because they are molecules secreted into the blood to regulate secretion of anterior pituitary hormones (McKinley 669). Regulatory hormones are produced in the hypothalamus and they travel to the anterior lobe of the pituitary gland; therefore affecting

    more traditional surgery is a posterior laminotomy, however, newer less invasive microscopic and endoscopic surgeries been implemented to increase success and recovery time as well. Although most of these operations are performed on the posterior, anterior surgeries are also performed, depending upon the nature of the injury. While these surgeries partially remove disc material affecting the spinal cord, another type of surgery is used to remove the disc entirely and replace it with prosthetics.

    frontal lobe lies directly behind our forehead (NINDS, 2005) It contains the primary motor cortex and the prefrontal cortex, which extend from the central sulcus to the anterior of the brain. The posterior part of the frontal lobe is the precentral gyrus which is specialized in the control of fine movements. The very most anterior portion of the frontal lobe is the prefrontal cortex. The neurons in this area have up to sixteen times as many dendritic spines as neurons in the occipital lobe or

    nerve, which connects the retina with the back of the brain. Intraocular pressure is determined by the balance between the rate of the aqueous humor production (found between the cornea and the lens) and its resistance to outflow at the angle of the anterior chamber. In most cases, increased resistance to aqueous humor outflow causes elevated intraocular pressure. Lowering intraocular pressure constrains or slows the progress of glaucoma. There are many conditions that individuals may encounter as

    head injuries (to the frontal lobe) when they were children. To discover why damage to the frontal lobe could be a cause of serial killing, one must look at the function of the frontal lobe of the brain. The frontal lobe is located in the most anterior part of the brain hemispheres. It is considered responsible for much of the behavior that makes possible stable and adequate social relations. Self-control, planning, judgment, the balance of individual versus social needs, and many other essential

    massive loss of blood causes great tissue death in the pituitary gland, and when all the hormones released by the anterior pituitary gland fail, the disorder is usually referred as panhypopituitarism or complete pituitary failure. Hypopituitarism is a clinical definition used to describe when one or more functions of the gland are deficient, and it may refer to either or both anterior and posterior functional failure. Its incidence is of about 1 out 10,000 people suffering the disorder. In cases
