  • Essay On Anoxic Injury

    Taking care of a child with an illness requires a lot of communication and because stress levels are high, communication may not happen correctly and confusion and anger may take place. A large extra personal stressor that may take place is stress regarding finances. Health care is very expensive and when a child has a complex illness, medical bills and expensive and necessary equipment for the child build up and the family may have difficulty paying for them. The Orders; Labs and Diagnostics, Medications When a child has a suspected anoxic brain injury, several diagnostic tests take place. The tests that normally confirm an anoxic brain injury include: a CT scan, a MRI, an electroencephalogram (EEG), an evoked potential test, and a SPECT test. An evoked potential tests analyzes the “visual, auditory, and sensory pathways” and a SPECT test is a type of CT scan that shows metabolic pathways and blood flow in the brain (Birth Injury Guide, n.d.). All these tests show how much and where the damage is in the brain. These are important because they can give the health provider a good hint to how much care the child will need and what issues may happen due to the anoxic brain injury. Other interventions such as medications are prescribed based on the complications or outcomes that the child faced after the brain injury. Predicted outcomes and Prognosis The outcomes and prognosis vary case by case. There are so many factors that are involved when it comes to Anoxic…

  • EEG Compression And Pructural Priming

    As previously mentioned, in addition to the structural priming paradigm, the proposed study will make use of the measurement of event-related potentials via EEG. In order to measure the potentials accurately, there needs to be a starting point for which to begin the EEG measurements. Peter Hagoort (2008) suggests that the EEG measurement for an experiment measuring the P600, such as the proposed study, should begin at the final word of the sentence. However, I disagree with this idea, and side…

  • Locomotor Behavior Essay

    spinal cord is innervated by three primary motorneurons and they are known by their longitudinal position (Westerfield et al., 1986). The innervation of locomotor behaviour is also regulated by interneurons (Brustein et al., 2003). The axon of the interneurons will either ascend or descend along the spinal cord and as development progresses different types of interneurons such as commissural longitudinal ascending and ventral medial interneurons will arise (Hale et al., 2011). The depolarisation…

  • Benefits Of Potassium Channels

    Potassium channels (KC) are selective transmembrane proteins that allow K+ ions flow down an electrochemical gradient across cell membrane, thus controlling plasma membrane potential in both excitable and non-excitable cells (Szabo, Zoratti&Gulbins, 2010). Evolutionarily conserved KC family is one of the larges and most diverse of ion channels (Table1). Its diversity comes not only from a large number of genes coding for main subunits (over 80 mammalian genes). Many other processes such as…

  • Myasthenic Syndrome Case Studies

    autonomic dysfunction.1,7 Clinicians use electrophysiological measurements in the form of repetitive nerve stimulation (RNS) in order to objectively test for signs of proximal weakness in rested muscle, which is observed in approximately 80% of all LEMS patients.1,3,7 American neurologists Lambert-Eaton first described six cases where an electrophysiological pattern was observed with RNS, so this pattern remains a hallmark for diagnosis.5 In RNS, LEMS patients exhibit an abnormal decrease in…

  • Impact On TRMPLIV

    researchers examined was the salivary glands of the TRPML1-1- mice to observe the uncontrolled cAMP-dependent exocytosis. Calcium-driven via activation of calcium-activated chloride and potassium channels that are stimulated by cAMP pathway. With the addition of isoproterenol concentrations, there was a significant increase in exocytosis than with calcium alone. The researchers repeated the four independent assays as for the pancreatic acini and the results were similar to the pancreatic acini…

  • Acceleration Of Gravity Experiment

    (The ball of mass at the end of the string or rod) A pendulum consists of a mass attached by a string to a pivot point. The pendulum moves back and forth periodically (The period of the pendulum being the time taken for one cycle of oscillation and sweeps out an angle from the pivot. There is a negligible amount of air resistance acting on a pendulum due to its spherical shape so there are only two forces acting upon the pendulums mass. Gravity, being an internal force acting downwards; as it is…

  • Assignment 1 Lab Report

    The authors created the Accelerated Sensor of Action Potentials 1 (ASAP 1) using a green fluorescent protein source on the extracellular side of the plasma membrane to highlight the membrane potential changes as demonstrated by the fluctuation in the fluorescent brightness. Neuronal action potentials generated are monitored up to 200 Hz in frequency using this device. The general purpose of this experiment was to further understand information processing in the brain and how brain activity is…

  • The Importance Of Neurons

    A lot of what makes us up as people consists of neurons. Neurons are responsible for our bodies “communication system.” So much happens within our bodies at such a minuscule amount of time, and learning about the process made me realize how much needs to happen for me to feel a certain way or perform a certain action. In a neuron, it first has to have a certain amount of depolarizing ions for there to be an action potential. When that action potential is reached, charge can be sent through the…
