  • The Black Walnut Tree Analysis

    "The Black Walnut Tree" is a contention between the strict and non-literal, the down to earth and wistful. In an obvious actuality, verging on contemptuous tone, the mother and daughter discuss cutting downed selling the tree to pay off their home loan. In any case, with a move to more metaphorical dialect comes a change to a more typical perspective of the black walnut tree: it is an image of their family legacy and father's work, and however the home loan measures overwhelming, chopping down the tree would be a kind of dishonorable double-crossing. "The Black Walnut Tree" is composed in free verse and clear, open vocabulary, which is most purported toward the starting: “My mother and I debate: we could sell / the black walnut tree /to the lumberman / and pay off the mortgage.” It is stated casually and the symbolic meaning the tree had later in the poem is currently unknown or, more likely, suppressed.

    disease, which according to Dr. Bautista and Dr. Grossman is a progressive movement disorder related to the basal-ganglia of the brain, which control movement of the body. At the end of the substantia nigra of the basal ganglia lies the pathway to muscle cells that use dopamine as the neurotransmitter (Bautista & Grossman, 2014).

  • Onset: Impairment In Parkinson's Disease

    In the human body, motor commands are created in a division of the prefrontal cortex (responsible for higher level cognition) known as the neocortex. The neocortex houses the motor cortex and thus is responsible for motor control, which is the primary impairment in Parkinson’s Disease (Kaas & Stepniewska, 2016 SD). Onset typically follows a significant drop in the presence of the neurotransmitter dopamine, which in this case is generated from a part of the brain called the substantia nigra. The…
