  • Chapter 2: Toxin-Based Animal Model

    CHAPTER 2 – ANIMAL MODELS 5. Animal models: 5.a. Neurotoxic Models: 5.a.1. 6- Hydroxydopamine model: One of the most frequently used toxin-based animal model is 6-OHDA. It was first isolated in 1950. It is frequently used in rats. It shows affinity for catecholaminergic transporter. For example, norepinephrine transporter and dopamine transporter. Though the structure of 6-OHDA is similar to dopamine but the existence of excess amount of hydroxyl group makes it toxic to dopaminergic neurons. Catecholaminergic neurons are damaged by a combined effect of 6-OHDA, ROS and quinones. This effect leads inflammation in the brain which exists over time. All the features of Parkinson Disease are not mimic by this model. Reduced amount of dopamine,…

  • Persuasive Speech Outline For Animal Testing

    I. Introduction a. There is an estimated 115 million animals used for research in laboratories every year. The precise number is unknown because so few countries actually collect data about every animal they use for testing and research. II. Narration a. Animal testing is the use of any non-human animal in an experiment. It has become more prevalent in the past few decades due to advancements in the medical and scientific fields. Without these experiments, we would not have many of the…

  • Zebu Cattle Domestication: Exploring The Model Of Animal Domestication

    Skeletal remains are useful for interpreting the model of animal exploitation employed in a specific region, especially for large mammals, whose carcasses are extremely difficult to transport. (Becker 2002). With the presence of the whole animal carcass suggests an economy based on management in which animals are readily available and are slaughtered and butchered onsite (Arbuckle, 2009). Furthermore, if a high presences of “high utility” remains such as the limb of the animal are more common…

  • Human Benefits Of Animal Testing

    Claim Most of the Animal Testing does not provide solution to the human treatment in biomedical research, and are not reliable to predict the human health. Along with this human benefit cannot justify the cruelty in animal testing during research. However, looking at the history of biomedical research, animal have been repeatedly use whether those testing were successful or not. It is true that human beings and animals are somewhat similar in biological and physical structure but does that mean…

  • Should Animals Be Used In Biomedical Research Essay

    argue animals should not be used in biomedical research because there are many alternative out there to substitute animal testing, and animals has feeling and show empathy when another is hurt; however, the truth of the matter is humankinds need to use animals for biomedical testing in order to advance human race because animal testing will help us further understand human diseases, animal share many similar genetic similarity between the human, and it is unethical to use human in biomedical…

  • Social Factors And Social Influences On Eating Behavior

    There are many factors that affect eating behavior in humans ranging from environmental to mood to social influences. The extent of these factors nor the magnitude of their effect on eating behavior is not completely understood. Significant amounts of research has been done in this area of study, culminating in various different models proposed by researcher that seek to explain just one these factors. This paper seeks to describe and evaluate how well one of these models, the normative model…

  • Postdoctoral Fellowship Proposal

    which I suggested you as faculty mentors. The proposal I presented consists on developing theory-based and data-driven models of health complexity for contributing to the health theoretical development, providing coherence and context to fragmented evidence of health practice, and bringing closer health theory and facts. I briefly described this proposal in my application according to supplemental questions made by the program. The proposal is framed by formulations of health theories which…

  • Social Normative Model Analysis

    Polivy and Roth’s (2003) normative model attempts to explain how social factors influence food intake, specifically focusing on social facilitation, modeling, and impression-management. Models are incredibly helpful within scientific research as they allow for scientists to compile current data and propose frameworks to explain various behaviors. However, some models lack comprehensive explanations and require additional modification in order to accurately describe the potential causes of…

  • Gm Case Study Assignment

    attendance and new vision and strategies some of GM weakness are high cost and car recalls due to issues like the one described in this case study (Jureviciu, 2013). When it comes to what behavioral organizational model that GM used in this case study, it would appear as though they used the custodial model (Clark, 2015). This model is based on economic resources and places the managerial orientation on money. As a result, employees are oriented towards security, benefits, and dependence on the…

  • Advanced Apms Case Study

    CMS offers the Advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs) program as a difference option to MIPS. And if you qualify for an Advanced APM, then you don’t have to report MIPS data. Then you would receive a lump sum payment amounting to 5 percent of your Medicare Part B fee-for-service payments for the previous year rather than receiving a payment adjustment on your Medicare charges. That means being included in an Advanced APM also removes the threat of a negative adjustment that is part of the…
