Student Nurse - A&P Anatomy and Sectional Terminology It sounds silly, but you learn as many new words in an A&P course as you do a beginning foreign language course. Really --there's been research to prove it! - Kevin Patton Links here are for general A & P resources. Bones of the Skull - Structure - Fractures The skull is a bony structure that supports the face and forms a protective cavity for the brain. It is comprised of many bones, formed by intramembranous ossification, which are joined together by sutures (fibrous joints). These joints fuse together in adulthood, thus permitting brain growth during adolescence. The bones of the skull can be divided into two groups: those of the cranium (which can be subdivided the skullcap known as the calvarium, and the cranial base) and those of the face. The Cranium
3D Human Anatomy Brain & Nervous System Respiratory System Reproductive & Urinary General Issues in Scaling « PreviousHomeNext » S.S. Stevens came up with what I think is the simplest and most straightforward definition of scaling. touch experiments Touch Experiments Some of these experiments require a blindfold. Keep in mind that some people do not like to be blindfolded...you could ask them to keep their eyes closed, but don't count on them having their eyes closed for a very long time. The skin is the largest sensory organ of the body. The skin is sensitive to many different kinds of "stimuli", such as touch, pressure, and temperature. Within the skin, there are different types of "receptors" that are activated by different stimuli.

With this experiment, test your skin's ability to perceive whether an object is hot or cold. What You Need: Three tall glasses of water, one filled with very warm or hot water (not burning), one filled with room-temperature water, and one filled with ice waterA clock to time yourself What You Do: Grab the glass of hot water with one hand, making sure that your palm is touching the glass.

What number is halfway between 1 and 9? Is it 5 — or 3? Ask adults from the industrialized world what number is halfway between 1 and 9, and most will say 5. But pose the same question to small children, or people living in some traditional societies, and they're likely to answer 3. Cognitive scientists theorize that that's because it's actually more natural for humans to think logarithmically than linearly: 30 is 1, and 32 is 9, so logarithmically, the number halfway between them is 31, or 3. Neural circuits seem to bear out that theory. For instance, psychological experiments suggest that multiplying the intensity of some sensory stimuli causes a linear increase in perceived intensity. The new work was led by John Sun, a graduate student in Vivek Goyal's Signal Transformation and Information Representation (STIR) Group at RLE.
The Human Body This astonishing series takes us on a journey breathtaking twists of the most complex biological mechanism on earth - the human body. Using a technique that allows us to see photos changes over time, graphics, drawing and illustration calculated computerized techniques in order to investigate any effect, due to a corner of the human body in his various stages of growth, maturity and the final state - decay. Matriculation, girls, pains of adolescence, complex activity of the brain and eventually death shown in steps with detailed explanation.
About Are you looking for new ways to teach kids about math and science? Do you want activities that meet you where you live, whether your “classroom” is an active volcano, the shark tank at the local aquarium, or your own kitchen table? You’ve come to the right place. Howtosmile.org is collecting the best educational materials on the web and creating learning activities, tools, and services – all designed especially for those who teach school-aged kids in non-classroom settings. We are a group of science museums dedicated to bringing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) out of the academic cloister and into the wider world.
Scientific Method: Relationships Among Scientific Paradigms To see the full map of relationships among scientific paradigms, click here or on the image below. Note: The map is a large (8.7 MB) file and may take a while to download. Research & Node Layout: Kevin Boyack and Dick Klavans (mapofscience.com); Data: Thompson ISI; Graphics & Typography: W. Bradford Paley (didi.com/brad); Commissioned Katy Börner (scimaps.org) This map was constructed by sorting roughly 800,000 published papers into 776 different scientific paradigms (shown as pale circular nodes) based on how often the papers were cited together by authors of other papers.
