  • Sensory Organ System: A Case Study

    particular organ system that I consider to demonstrate the most significant age-related changes in the human body would be the Sensory System. The sensory system is composed of the five senses: vision, hearing, taste, smell, and touch, which all declines with age. However, the age that the changes occur and the rate of the sensory organ 's decline varies among people (Aldwin & Gilmer, 2013, Chapter 7). With age, these senses become less sharp, thus making it harder to notice details of the external environment. These changes can alter one 's lifestyle causing problems in proficient communication, inability to enjoy day-to-day activities, and also it can affect the way one is engaged with other people.

  • Balance With Age

    In conclusion this investigation did prove its hypothesis that If 0-20 year olds, 20-40 years old, 40-60 years old and 60+ year old are all tested then the youngest age group of 0-20s year old will have the higher timed results than the eldest age group 60+ year olds because age affects balance related senses such as vestibular system. The vestibular cells die with age and the cerebellum cells can also be affected by age and drugs for arthritic pain. The results showed that the highest average…

  • Comparative Sensory Physiology Lab Report

    Elizabeth Fernandez Professor Richardson General Biology 2 Lab Section 01 March 27, 2017 Comparative Sensory Physiology Lab Introduction: All animals have specialized receptor cells that are sensitive to certain inputs like sound, light and chemicals. When these receptor cells are stimulated a nerve impulse is sent across the body and into the central nervous system where the signal is perceived as one of the animals senses (taste, hearing, sight, smell, equilibrium, etc.). There are three…

  • An Apology For Raymond Sebond Analysis

    In seeking knowledge outside of God, man grows prideful and arrogant (Montaigne 500). But Montaigne states that “no system discovered by man has greater usefulness nor a greater appearance of truth [than Pyrrhonism] which shows us Man naked, empty, aware of his natural weaknesses, fit to accept help from on high” (Montaigne 564). The omission of man’s own opinions and assertions leaves more room for divine knowledge, the only thing which Montaigne believes we can be truly certain of. When…

  • White Sharks Research Paper

    muscle temperatures of the shark are as much as 10 oC warmer than the water that it swims in. This confirms that a system of large retia mirabilia in the circulatory system function as heat exchangers. (2) The shark does not thermoregulate and muscle temperature changes slowly as water temperature changes. Because of these heat changes the shark can maintain itself for more than a month on a single large meal. Speed of locomotion plays an important role in an animal’s biology and ecology and…
