    [2] The main function of the thalamus is relaying and integrating information to and from the cerebral cortex using the many nuclei that lie within it. [10] Another vital role of the thalamus is to maintain consciousness of the animal. [11] This would account for the reduced mental status of the Labrador in this case, as the fleshy matter was located here. The lateral geniculate nuclei (LGN) are ‘olive’ like in shape and are found either side in the posterior thalamus. They receive input via the optic tract, which is the link between the thalamus and the LGN. [12] The input comes from both eyes and projects information to the visual cortex in the occipital lobe. [2] The medial geniculate nucleus is also found in the thalamus. It is responsible for auditory pathways. It receives auditory signals from both ears and projects them to the primary auditory cortex. Having a tumorous mass around this structure could allow this relay of information to be disrupted and would explain the non-existent or aggressive response of the dog to its owner.…

  • Amygdality: A Literature Review

    that auditory areas in the superior temporal sulcus demonstrate an enhanced response to emotional prosody (Sander, Grandjean, Pourtois, Schwartz, Seghier, & Scherer, 2005; Sander, Grandjean, Pourtois, Schwartz, Seghier, Scherer, & Vuilleumier, 2005; Grandjean, Sander, Pourtois, Schwartz, Seghier, Scherer, & Vuilleumier 2005). Sander et al. (2005) considered that voice and face perception might be similar in terms of neural organization; Grandjean et al. (2005) verified this, as angry prosody…

  • Blindsight Essay

    The Significant Impact of Blindsight Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi once said, “Control of consciousness determines the quality of life.” The idea that we are in control of our own consciousness, whether we are consciously aware of it or not, is a fascinating one; and it is even more fascinating when you take into consideration phenomenon like blindsight. Blindsight, according to, is “the ability to respond to visual stimuli without having any conscious visual experience; it can occur…

  • Lab 4: Osmotic Regulation Of Cell Volume

    Lab 4: Osmotic regulation of cell volume The eukaryotic organism requires homeostasis to maintain daily activities and life. Zooming into smaller units to make up an organism, cells also require homeostasis in order for the organisms to function. Understanding the different balance cells need to maintain will aid us in understanding how cells in organisms successfully maintain osmo-regulations. Eukaryotic cells have selective permeable membrane giving them the unique function of regulating…

  • Prokaryotes And Eukaryotes Essay

    Both cells contain DNA which is essential for the life of the cell. DNA contains, stores, or transmits the genetic information the cell needs to produce proteins and maintain and replicate itself. The DNA contains the instructions for the building of specific proteins and the code for certain traits. However, where DNA is structurally in the cell is different between prokaryotes and eukaryotes. In prokaryotes, the DNA is in the cytoplasm, but specifically it is concentrated in the nucleoid…

  • Personal Narrative: The Mitosis Diamond

    the rock was a diamond. They gave me it back and I payed for it. On my way out the worker that glared at me told me “be careful with the diamond it is very powerful and dangerous.” I drove home thinking about what the worker said about the diamond and it kinda scared me the way he said it. He was almost angry. Then all of a sudden the diamond started to feel a little soft almost as if a orage when it was peeled. Then I look closer and see these little things floating around. Then…

  • Cell Membrane: The Two Main Components Of Cells

    In the prokaryote cell, all the components of the cell are in the cytoplasm because they do not have a cell nucleus but in the eukaryote cell, the materials in the cell nucleus are separated from the cytoplasm. It is dominated mainly of water, but there are some enzymes like protein salts, organelles (mitochondria, Golgi apparatus and so on) and various organic molecules. The cytoplasm helps in the movements of materials and chemicals around the cell and also eliminates waste in the cell also in…

  • Fto Synthesis

    to m6A were identified by immunoprecipitation (IP) analyses. In the experiment, YTHDF2 and YTHDF3 were successfully pulled-down when m6A was used as a bait. Those proteins contain novel RNA binding domain called YTH domain. The YTH domain has been shown to bind single stranded RNA, but not single stranded DNA, through an evolutionally conserved amino acids sequences (Trp380, Phe412, and Gly414). However, regulatory function of binding of the YTH domain containing proteins to RNA often seems to…

  • Red Pellet Lab Report

    After being incubated in a water bath at 37 degrees Celsius for 20 minutes, the 8 samples were centrifuged at 400 rpm for 5 minutes and collected for observations. Presence of a red pellet in the first 7 tubes, including control Test Tube 1 were noted, while the red pellet was absent in control Test tube 8. It must also be noted that the pellet became progressively smaller as each successive tube was examined, a result more noticeable after examination of Test tube 5, as seen in Figure 1. The…

  • Conclusion Of Cellular Manufacturing

    Cellular manufacturing is an application of Group Technology in which machines or processes have been aggregated into cells, each of which is dedicated to production of a part or product family or limited group of families. Parts with similar processing requirements are identified; these are then placed into logical groups called part families and the equipment requirements for each part family are subsequently determined. A part family is a collection of parts which are similar either because…
