  • Summary: The Importance Of Pain In The Human Body

    Each neuron in the body has a negative, and positive side that is naturally attracted to each other but is separated by a plasma membrane (external boundary) until the energy created by the two is ready to be used. The plasma membrane has protein channels (gates) that allow the diffusion of ions. The three types of gates are leakage (passive) channels which are always open that allow k+ to leak out of the cell; chemical ligated gates which activate by the binding of chemical neurotransmitters…

  • The Cochanisms Of Neural Communication

    When investigating the mechanisms of neural communication and the impact various drugs can have on this its important to take into consideration what these actually mean and whereabouts in the body are the main components. The word neural communication consists of how neurons communicate with each other through their physiological process, and drugs consist of chemicals, substances or medicines that have a physiological and/or psychological effect on the brain and body. Within this essay I will…

  • Fish Homeostasis

    Administration of APV did not impact the early onset, but slightly reduced the later parts of the EPSP, the same results were seen by administration of APV+CNQX, but the later components were largely reduced thus exposing the role of AMPA in the response. 50Hz stimulation was given which impacted the later part of the EPSP rather than the first, but administration of .25Hz caused the second peak to recover. The article suggests morphological research on the lateral dendrite shows that presence…

  • Essay On Roller Coasters

    roller coasters, but have they really thought about how they work? All of the tosses and turns. How does it stay on the track? How does it slow down? How does it speed up? Slow and clanking, the string of cars is pulled up to the highest point of a roller coaster. One by one, the cars start going downhill on the other side, until gravity kicks into action and the full weight of the train is going down into curves, twists, and turns. A roller coaster is a great example of gravitational potential…

  • Sciatic Nerve Experiment

    This study analyzed the differences and the relationships of the isolated sciatic nerve in regards to the compound action potential and the neuromuscular junction stimulations of the Rana pipens gastrocnemius. A total of five exercises were used to identify the effects on the stimulation of the sciatic nerve and the gastrocnemius. A dissection for both labs were performed to isolate the nerve and to isolate the gastrocnemius. Both experiments used LabChart to perform various stimulations on the…

  • Sense Of Taste Research Paper

    The interactions with the taste receptor cells will produce an action potential that will induce an action potential in taste sensory neurons. A neuron has 3 main parts: the dendrite, the cell body, and the axon. Information will be able to move faster in bigger and myelinated axons. In sensory neurons, the action potential is trigger at the dendrite. Each neuron has a cell membrane that encloses each neuron. The cell membrane is semi-permeable which mean certain things can go in and out of it.…

  • Adenosine Receptor Caffeine Analysis

    more simple location for cell isolation and patch-clamping (von Kitzing, 1994). By quantifying the change in firing rate, the quantification of channels can be proportionally analyzed. This is due to Adenosines role in inhibiting the CNS whenever present – thus applying varying levels of caffeine one should see an increase in firing rate of the neurons that are directly affected by Adenosine. This again is due in part to the role of neurotransmitters themselves. They act as a signaling system…

  • What Is The Difference Between Nature And Nurture Is More Important In Determining Behavior

    The difference between nature and nurture is that nature is the idea that behavior is effected by your chemical and gene make up while nurture is the idea that you are a blank slate and your behavior is distinguished by experiments. They both effect behavior is what was discovered. * Dualism is supported by cognitive psychologists such as George A. Miller and Sigmund Freud * Rene Descartes dealt with Monism vs. Dualism & Interactive Dualism * Monism is the belief that the mind…

  • Benefits Of Kinetic Energy

    As it is moving, gravitational force is pulling it in the opposite direction. As it reaches the highest point of swing, it has maximum gravitational potential energy because that is the highest point from the ground. When it reaches the lowest point of swing, the pendulum has the maximum kinetic energy because this is when it needs the most energy to push it in each direction. However, the pendulum has the minimum gravitation potential energy because it is closer to the…
