  • Multiple Sclerosis Case Study: The Spinal Nervous System

    1. The peripheral nervous system, which is divided into the sensory and motor divisions, is involved in physical sensation. Sensory impulses move though the body by being stimulated by a receptor in the skin. It then travels to the sensory neurons and through the afferent fibers, were it will end up at the spinal cord as well as the brain. 2. The motor division of the nervous system are involved in skeletal muscle movement. Motor impulses move through efferent fibers. A motor unit is a motor…

  • Calorimeter Lab

    captured by the water. Literature Review Kinetic energy is the energy of motion. The kinetic energy of an object is energy that is being used. Potential energy is stored energy that it is not in motion, but has the potential to be in motion. There are other types of potential energy like gravitational, elastic, and chemical. “Gravitational potential energy is the energy stored in an object as the result of its vertical position or height. The energy is stored…

  • Process Of Non-Steroid Hormone Action

    Hormones operate using a type of mechanism. Releasing these hormones can trigger actions in particular target cells. One receptor on the cell membrane binds to one type of hormone. The binding hormones change the shape of the receptor, which causes the response to the hormone. Through the process of steroid hormone action, the hormone goes through a certain process of two steps. The hormone binds to receptors on the nuclear membrane once it is inside the cell that produces an…

  • Explain The Membrane Potential In The Rmp

    Membrane Potential in the RMP The membrane potential in the Resting Membrane Potential, or the RMP, is the little bit of voltage or electrical potential going across from the membrane of its regular resting voltage. This is caused because of gradients that make the ions go across the membrane of a cell through ion channels because ions are not soluble so they have to go through channels. These channels are called ion channels that are watery pores allowing ions to get through according to their…

  • Important Vocabulary: The Important Nervous System

    Important Vocabulary (highlighted in the handout): Stimulus, neurons, dendrites, neurotransmitters, axon, myelin, action potential, graded potential, transmembrane potential, neuroglia, cerebrum, spinal cord What is the central nervous system? It’s a system which consists of the nerves in the brain and spinal cord. This system only makes up about 3% of a human’s body weight but serves a vital function, gathering information about and reacting to its environment and any stimulus. Don’t Shoot the…

  • The Potenning Factor In The Different Forms Of Power Water And Hydroelectric Energy

    side of the dam. This relatively higher elevation is what gives the water the potential energy to turn the turbine when it begins to flow ("Hydroelectric Energy."). Potential energy is calculated by the force due to gravity multiplied by the change in height of the matter. So, a reservoir of just 10 cubic meters of water that is 50 meters above the river on the other side and flowing at just 1 meter per second, has a potential power of 49,000 watts for every second that it flows. Under these…

  • Benefits Of Kinetic Energy

    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…

  • A Summary Of Yugong

    Long ago, a man named Yugong (foolish man) lived in a house sitting behind two giant mountains. One morning, Yugong started taking rocks away from the mountains and told his neighbors that he was going to move them because they were blocking his way. One of his neighbors, known as Zhisou (wise man) heard the story and laughed: “Have you seen the sizes of the mountains? How could you ever have them moved?” Yugong answered, “I will just get it started. My children will continue; so will my…

  • Neuron Research Paper

    The neuron is the basic working unit of the nervous system. It is a specialized cell that is designed to transmit information to other cells across the body. Neurons make up such a large part of the brain, that they are also responsible for learning, reasoning, memory, and perception. The neuron comes from the portion of the body known as the nervous system, which is responsible for the impulses sent throughout the body. The neuron is composed of several parts in its structure and to ensure…

  • Neurodegeneration

    According to the National Institute of Neurological Disorders and Stroke, there are more than 600 neurologic disorders 1. Neurodegeneration is one of the main contributors to Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, and Multiple Sclerosis. Neurodegeneration is the debilitating condition along with those diseases, which results in the healthy, functioning nerve cells to deteriorate and slowly die off. Deterioration gradually leads to the loss of cognitive skills, motor skills, and eventually death of the nerve…
