Pelvic Inflammatory Disease - CDC Fact Sheet

What is PID? Pelvic inflammatory disease is an infection of a woman’s reproductive organs. It is a complication often caused by some STDs, like chlamydia and gonorrhea. Other infections that are not sexually transmitted can also cause PID. Back to Top How do I get PID? You are more likely to get PID if you Have an STD and do not get treated; Have more than one sex partner; Have a sex partner who has sex partners other than you; Have had PID before; Are sexually active and are age 25 or younger; Douche; Use an intrauterine device (IUD) for birth control. How do women get PID? You can protect yourself from getting PID by. Chlamydia. About STDs - Your Ultimate Reference Guide - The STD Project. About STDs - Info, Posts, and Pages about STIs/STDs.

How big would all of its constituent parts be? The brain-mapping folks at Eyewire teamed up with and FEI to host a Scale-Of-The-Brain infographic competition. With competition judges like Christopher Jobson (of Colossal), Maria Popova (of Brainpickings) and MIT neuroscientist and professional brain-mapper Sebastian Seung, entries neede to be not only visually appealing but scientifically accurate.

The visualization below, designed by Chris Whittaker and Laura White of Ashfield Healthcare Communications, and Craig Armstrong of CreativeFusion – took first place, but some of the runners up are pretty impressive, too.

Nervous System Information

As a key homeostatic regulatory and coordinating system, it detects, interprets, and responds to changes in internal and external conditions. The nervous system integrates countless bits of information and generates appropriate reactions by sending electrochemical impulses through nerves to effector organs such as muscles and glands. The brain and spinal cord are the central nervous system (CNS); the connecting nerve processes to effectors and receptors serve as the peripheral nervous system (PNS). CNS: neurons, brain, spinal cord. Muscles of the shoulders and arms. Index of /Circulatory/samples/images. Ten Helpful Mnemonics for Clinical Anatomy Terms. Learning (and memorizing) the names and locations of anatomical structures isn’t easy, so clinical anatomy students often develop mnemonics, or memory tricks, to make it a little easier.

Ten Helpful Mnemonics for Clinical Anatomy Terms

These mnemonics include acronyms, short poems, and silly phrases that are quite effective for remembering parts of the body. Here are ten popular (G-rated) memory devices for different parts of the body, from the top to the bottom. The cranial bones Your skull has six cranial bones that form the cranial vault. You don’t want to confuse them with the facial bones, so you can remember them with this phrase: Homepage Physiology and Anatomy. ANATOMY. Planes and Axes Lab. The correct response is TRUE.

Hip abduction and adduction both occur in the frontal plane about an anterior-posterior axis. The correct response is SAGITTAL. Trunk flexion and extension occur in the sagittal plane about a medio-lateral axis. The correct response is FALSE. Search results. Full Body MRI : gifs. VISIBLE HUMAN PROJECT.

Share By Rick Groleau Posted 10.09.01 NOVA Most of the time, when a cell in our bodies divides, each new cell carries a complete set of chromosomes.

How Cells Divide

The cells involved with human reproduction, however, carry only half after division occurs. In this step-by-step explanation, learn about mitosis and meiosis, the two types of cell division. This feature originally appeared on the site for the NOVA program 18 Ways to Make a Baby. Background on Meiosis and Mitosis As viewed from a human perspective, nature seems to have done ingenious engineering to overcome obstacles.

Asexual reproduction relies on a process called mitosis, in which the nucleus of a cell divides to create two new nuclei, each containing an identical copy of DNA. Meiosis, on the other hand, is the process by which certain sex cells are created. LUMEN Histology home page. Human Physiology Animation and Tutorial Links. Biology 120 Animations.

What is the strongest muscle in the human body? (Everyday Mysteries: Fun Science Facts from the Library of Congress) There are three types of muscles in the human body: cardiac, smooth and skeletal. Cardiac muscle makes up the wall of the heart and is responsible for the forceful contraction of the heart. Smooth muscles make up the walls of the intestine, the uterus, blood vessels, and internal muscles of the eye.

Skeletal muscles are attached to the bones and in some areas the skin (muscles in our face). Contraction of the skeletal muscles helps limbs and other body parts move. Human Sense Organs - The Five Senses. Aristotle (384 BC - 322 BC) is credited with the traditional classification of the five sense organs: sight, smell, taste, touch, and hearing. As far back as the 1760's, the famous philosopher Immanuel Kant proposed that our knowledge of the outside world depends on our modes of perception. In order to define what is "extrasensory" we need to define what is "sensory".

Each of the 5 senses consists of organs with specialized cellular structures that have receptors for specific stimuli.

The vertebral column, or spinal column, is made up of 33 vertebrae, which are grouped into 5 regions: cervical, thoracic, lumbar, sacral, and coccyx. At the cervical region the spinal column is further classified into an upper and lower cervical region. The atlas is one of the two upper cervical vertebrae, also known as C1, which is the topmost vertebra of the spinal column. It is the vertebra that is in contact with the occipital bone, a flat bone located at the back portion of the head. Molecular Expressions Cell Biology: Ribosomes. Ribosomes All living cells contain ribosomes, tiny organelles composed of approximately 60 percent ribosomal RNA (rRNA) and 40 percent protein.

However, though they are generally described as organelles, it is important to note that ribosomes are not bound by a membrane and are much smaller than other organelles. Some cell types may hold a few million ribosomes, but several thousand is more typical. Cat Disection. Virtual Cat Dissection. No Title.
