Female Orgasm Captured In Brain Scan Animation Scientists have created the world's first video animation of the female orgasm, using a series of brain scan images. To capture the brain activity, researchers monitored a woman's brain as she lay in a functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) scanner and stimulated herself. Psychologists at Rutgers University in New Jersey, where the study was conducted, hope the research will help them to understand the reasons why some men and women cannot reach sexual climax. Researcher, Professor Barry Komisaruk, who presented the findings at the Society for Neuroscience annual meeting in Washington DC on Monday, told the Guardian: "The general aim of this research is to understand how the orgasm builds up from genital stimulation and what parts of the brain become recruited and finally build up into an orgasm." The animation is made up of a sequence of brain scans of Nan Wise, a 54-year-old PhD student and sex therapist in Komisaruk's lab. "We're using orgasm as a way of producing pleasure.

CAPHIS | Top 100 Health Websites You Can Trust Updated September 2013 The purpose of the CAPHIS Top 100 List is to provide CAPHIS members and other librarians with a resource to use in their daily practice and teaching. Secondly, it is our contribution to the Medical Library Association so that the headquarters staff can refer individuals to a list of quality health web sites. Our goal is to have a limited number of resources that meet the quality criteria for currency, credibility, content, audience, etc., as described on our website. pdf of complete Top 100 List No direct recommendation or sponsorship by CAPHIS or MLA of these listed web resources is implied. The Medical Library Association and CAPHIS endorse the Criteria for Assessing the Quality of Health Information on the Internet of the Health Summit Working Group.

How the kidney works Each kidney contains about a million tiny structures called nephrons. A nephron has a cup-shaped Bowman's capsule leading into the renal tubule. The two sections of each nephron extend across the two different regions of the kidney: the Bowman's capsules are found within the outer cortex regionthe renal tubules run from the cortex into the darker medulla How does the kidney balance the blood? Placed end to end, the nephrons of one kidney would stretch about 8 km. A branch of the renal artery supplies the nephrons with blood. Four Pillars drug strategy The treatment pillar includes a range of interventions and support programs that encourage people with addiction problems to make healthier decisions about their lives. Treatment improves health by decreasing preventable deaths, illnesses and injuries, while improving social integration. Early intervention Early intervention is a crucial aspect of any treatment system. Treatment seeks to create a continuum of care by recognizing that different drug use patterns must guide treatment strategies. Treatment interventions must also respond to multiple individual needs as well as particular needs of specific populations. Treatment services Treatment services, delivered by Vancouver Coastal health, include: Core services at community health centres Withdrawal management Residential and non-residential services. Currently, there are four levels within withdrawal management ranging from home detox to medical detox.

Cartographies des connaissances scientifiques Comment cartographier les sciences? De la "Métaphysique" d'Aristote à la classification de Dewey, le classement des savoirs est un enjeu philosophique majeur. Raphaël Velt retrace les cartes historiques et s'intéresse à leurs utilisations. Article publié sur OWNISciences sous le titre, Les connaissances scientifiques à la carte Les techniques cartographiques peuvent s’appliquer à toutes les disciplines scientifiques, notamment en biologie où elles servent entre autres à décrire les réseaux trophiques (plus connus sous le nom réducteur de « chaînes alimentaires ») ainsi que les réseaux complexes d’interactions entre molécules. Les techniques cartographiques peuvent en effet décrire l’état des connaissances scientifiques ainsi que la dynamique de la recherche. Une brève histoire de l’organisation des connaissances Système figuré des connoissances humaines Cette classification vieille de deux siècles et demi semble aujourd’hui quelque peu désuète. Classification Décimale de Dewey Carte de 1983

Healthcare Professionals Homepage HCPlive Cell Membrane Structure and Function The Plasma Membrane fluid mosaic model, semi-permeable (selectively permeable), double layer of phospholipids with embedded proteins Jobs of the cell membrane Isolate the cytoplasm from the external environment Regulate the exchange of substances Communicate with other cells Identification Phospholipids (fats) contain a hydrophilic head and a nonpolar hydrophobic tail, which creates a barrier. Cholesterol - stiffens the membrane by connecting phospholipids Glycolipids - signal molecules Glycoproteins - have an attached chain of sugar (antibodies) Proteins embedded in membrane serve different functions 1. Transport Across Membrane -The membrane is selectively permeable (also called semipermeable ) - Small particles, or particles with no charge can pass through the bilayer (carbon dioxide and oxygen) - Water has a charge, does not easily cross the membrane - a channel protein, Aquaporin helps water across Passive Transport Osmosis - diffusion of water Solutions: Hypertonic | Isotonic | Hypotonic

The Health 2.0 Blog Elevating Community Health with Innovation and Engagement The Health 2.0 movement strives to inspire innovative action in digital health, aiming to improve health at the individual, community, population, and global level. Our work as a company will continue to contribute to the growing determination and dialog on April 3rd at Health 2.0’s second annual Healthy Communities Data Summit on the UCLA campus. In working with the Calfornia Health Care Foundation, California Wellness Foundation, and the Lucille Packard Foundation, Health 2.0 expects a perserverant group of speakers, demoers, and leaders to identify the community health needs in California, and to jumpstart the ways in which we can all work to fix them. The second annual Healthy Communities Data Summit inspired productive conversation and data discussion, demonstrating new data sets and resources focused on understanding underserved populations, childrens health networks, and larger patient population profiles.

The pages here are meant to be used as a lecture supplement for anatomy and physiology students. Many students have told me that these pages have been helpful to them, so I encourage you to go through them and learn from them as well. These web pages were originally written for a partial-distance education course, but that is no longer offered. From this home page, you can link to any topic, listed as a Unit page.

What topics science lovers link to the most Hilary Mason, chief scientist at bitly, examined links to 600 science pages and the pages that those people visited next: The results revealed which subjects were strongly and weakly associated. Chemistry was linked to almost no other science. Biology was linked to almost all of them. Health was tied more to business than to food. The interactive lets you poke around the data, looking at connections sorted from weakest (fewer links) to strongest (more links), and nodes are organized such that topics with more links between each other are closer together. Natural next step: let me click on the nodes. [Scientific American via @hmason]

The Future of Health Care Is Social Health care is a personal issue that has become wholly public--as the national debate over reforming our system makes painfully clear. But what's often lost in the gun-toting Town Hall debates about the issue is a clear vision about how medicine could work in the future. In this feature article, frog design uses its people-centered design discipline to show how elegant health and life science technology solutions will one day become a natural part of our behavior and lifestyle. What you see here is the result of frog's ongoing collaboration with health-care providers, insurers, employers, consumers, governments, and technology companies. You can join the conversation too: this Thursday October 8 at noon eastern, frog will hold a discussion about the future of health care on Twitter (follow the hash tag #futureofhealthcare).
