  • Advantages Of Tactile Sensors

    very small, which allows the construction of dense sensor arrays. In general, capacitive tactile sensors exhibit a good frequency response, good sensitivity, high spatial resolution, and have a large dynamic range. Major drawbacks for this mode of transduction are stray capacity, severe hysteresis, and susceptibility to noise, especially in a mesh configurations because of crosstalk noise, field interactions and fringing capacitance. Relatively complex electronics are required to filter out this…

  • Frog Lab Report

    hormone released by the adrenal medulla that increases blood pressure and heart rate. Feelings such as fear or excitement stimulate the release of this hormone into the blood. When epinephrine binds to receptors of a heart muscle, it stimulates a signal transduction process that results in an increased heart rate and more forceful muscle…

  • Social Factors Influencing Gene Expression

    DNA gives cells the potential for specific behavior, but this potential will only be realized if the gene is expressed. A gene is expressed if the DNA is transcribed into RNA and then converted into a protein. These proteins can have many different effects on the cell, such as metabolism or neurotransmission. We are now able to tell which specific genes are expressed at a particular time. Gene expression is uncommon, however, with no transcription and only the potential for a behavior as a…

  • Four Senses Research Paper

    resulting picture created by the brain. The complete picture that humans experience is made up by both the senses and brain but are not experienced directly. Instead, the stimuli created by the senses are translated into electrical impulses, called transduction, that then move to the brain…

  • Analysis Of Srgnet: Synergistic Response To Gene Mutations Network

    The enrichment of Role of Deleted in Colorectal Carcinoma (DCC) in regulating apoptosis signal transduction pathway was an important finding that indicated the role of Dapk1 in colorectal carcinoma through regulation of ligand-independent caspase activation (Forcet, et al., 2001). The pathways related to Notch signaling were the next significantly…

  • Advantages Of Molecular Docking

    molecules. The associations between biologically relevant molecules such as proteins, nucleic acids, carbohydrates, and lipids play a key role in signal transduction. Thus, the relative alignment of the two interacting proteins can affect the type of signal produced. Therefore, docking is used for predicting (assuming) both the strength and the type of signal produced. Molecular docking is one of the most frequently used methods in structure-based…

  • Mammalian Skin

    mammalian thermosensitivity and limits for noxious temperatures cannot be generalised. The sensory cells which respond to temperature as well as pain, pressure and touch are distributed throughout the epidermal and dermal layers of the skin. The transduction of these stimuli primarily relies on unique somatorysensory neurons which reside in the trigeminal and dorsal root ganglia and have axonal processes that extend into the outer layers of skin (8). The sensory neurons use dendrites to gather…

  • The Pituitary Gland Is The Seat Of The Soul

    When you think about this sort of statement/quote using logic our brain sends signals or messages the body but cannot actually create emotions or feelings or a conscious which is why there is something we called " the soul" and this soul is proved to be located in the pineal gland because of the all emotional experiences human beings…

  • Adiponectin Case Study

    Introduction Adiponectin Adiponectin is mainly produced in fat tissue but other studies have shown it to be expressed in mRNA and protein levels in different tissues like osteoblasts in humans and murine (Berner et al., 2004), parenchymal cells in the liver (Yoda-Murakami et al., 2001; Jonsson et al., 2005; Kaser et al., 2005), myocytes (Delaigle et al., 2004), epithelial cells (Shimada et al., 2004; Patel et al., 2008), and placental tissue (Caminos et al., 2005; Chen et al., 2006). Adipose…

  • Microbial Resistance To Antibiotics: The Impacts Of Antibiotic Resistance

    Antibiotic resistance allows harmful microbes to exist thereby posing a major threat to many species. These microbes reject the antibiotics used to treat them; this leads to more bacterial infections, increased monetary funds to treat the infections, dangerous side effects from the use of several different antibiotics, and increased morbidity and mortality (“Impacts of Antibiotic Resistance”, 2014). The healthcare system’s approach to this widespread, global issue may be extremely expensive in…
