  • Sciatic Nerve Experiment

    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 sciatic nerve and the gastrocnemius muscle to observe the level of intensity, contraction, and voltage threshold caused by different stimulation pulses. Introduction When a neuron produces an action potential it could be due to chemical…

  • Organ System And Nervous System

    separate functions and organs and also have their own fair share of problems. The muscular system composes of the tissues and organs that are used to exert a force, whether under voluntary or involuntary control. Muscles are composed of long, slender cells called fibers, and these fibers come in bundles with very few or countless amounts per bundle. Muscles move by either contracting or extending, which is directed by nerve impulses sent from the central nervous system. There are three main…

  • Electro Diagnostic Testing Essay

    Nerves and muscles in the body send electrical signals throughout the body- sending and receiving messages to the brain. Electro diagnostic testing helps the doctor to get a better understanding of how those electrical signals are functioning in the body. There are two types of electro diagnostic testing; Electromyography, more commonly known as an EMG, and Nerve Conduction Studies, or NCS. An EMG allows the doctor to monitor and understand the electrical action that takes place within the body.…

  • Guillain Barre Research Paper

    Only 1 in 100,000 people have to experience this scarce syndrome; Guillain Barre could possibly temporary have a serious affliction on the individual’s life, some of which we have heard of. Take Franklin D. Roosevelt for example, he suffered from Guillain Barre or also commonly known as “GBS” experienced a fight with this nerve damaging infection. GBS progressively starts to own a person’s life, being educated about this disease, the symptoms and effects, and the treatments will be beneficial. …

  • Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis

    A nerve cell is also called a motor neuron, which is made from a cell body, an axon and axon terminals. The cell body contains a nucleus and dendrites that receive the signals and send it down the axon that is covered in myelin sheath. The axon terminals are connected to the muscles creating a neuromuscular junction. This is where the signal is relayed to the muscle. There are two groups of motor neurons: upper and lower. Upper motor neurons are those found in the brain and lower motor neurons…

  • Smoking Makes People Smoke Research Paper

    The principal effect that make people continue smoking is that the drug excites neural activity and speed body functions. In other words, it makes the body feel good every time he/she smokes because the drug (cigarettes) helps keep motivated the body and feel energetic throughout the year. That is why it is really difficult a person stops smoking. Although, at the same time the drug is killing nerve cells in the brain because it has strong toxins that it can damage the nerve cells and kill them.…

  • Biceps Muscles Lab Report

    When the bicep muscles were activated, the EMG on the bottom trace shows that the triceps were also activated. However, the triceps traces did not produce a large amplitude as the bicep muscles. The data does support the phenomenon of co-activation. The data supports the fact that even though these triceps muscles are activated at a minimal degree, when the biceps are activated. D). The nerve conduction velocity of the volunteers arm can be calculated by a given equation which is equal to…

  • Class Observation Essay

    know that as we age our age of motion will decrease, but it can be up to 30% as we reach our senior years. Over the year’s muscle will begin to shorten thus losing their elasticity. For seniors maintain a quality of life stretching needs to be a part of their life. Stretching can increase their joint range of motions, making daily tasks a bit easier to complete. There is no set time of schedule of when stretches should be done, but seniors should aim for 3 days a week, performing each stretch…

  • Nerve Cell Synthesis

    This essays purpose is to contrast the mechanisms that underlie signal propagation within and between nerve cells. It is important that this is answered correctly, as the actions of the mechanisms are crucial for what is going on inside of our bodies. To begin with, the basic anatomy of the neuron has to be explained, to understand what exactly happens, and how it happens. A neuron cell is most likely the supreme cell within the body of a mammal. Like any other cell, the neuron cell has the…
