The Human Brain · Atlas of the Human Brain · Brain in Stereotaxic Space Brain – The Atlas of the Human Brain in Stereotaxic Space A short introduction in to the Atlas of the Human Brain and the Brain used throughout for the research on this site. To take a more systematical approach to the use of the provided material both on the DVD from the "Atlas of the Human Brain" and the applications you can find on this website the following explanatory steps might help. Figure 1: The Brain used for research in the "Atlas of the Human Brain" and which are used for the main applications is from a 24-year-old male from the Vogt collection in Düsseldorf. Further details about The Brain.
Brain Atlas - Introduction The central nervous system (CNS) consists of the brain and the spinal cord, immersed in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF). Weighing about 3 pounds (1.4 kilograms), the brain consists of three main structures: the cerebrum, the cerebellum and the brainstem. Cerebrum - divided into two hemispheres (left and right), each consists of four lobes (frontal, parietal, occipital and temporal). The outer layer of the brain is known as the cerebral cortex or the ‘grey matter’. It covers the nuclei deep within the cerebral hemisphere e.g. the basal ganglia; the structure called the thalamus, and the ‘white matter’, which consists mostly of myelinated axons.
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. 10 Vestigial Traits You Didn't Know You Had Let's not forget that crease between the middle of your upper lip and your nose (the philtrum), left over from the days when we had a split down the middle of our snout like rodents, cats, dogs, etc. (Why did that evolve, anyway? Reptiles don't have it...)
Human Genome Project Information Completed in 2003, the Human Genome Project (HGP) was a 13-year project coordinated by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) and the National Institutes of Health. During the early years of the HGP, the Wellcome Trust (U.K.) became a major partner; additional contributions came from Japan, France, Germany, China, and others. Project goals were to identify all the approximately 20,500 genes in human DNA,determine the sequences of the 3 billion chemical base pairs that make up human DNA,store this information in databases,improve tools for data analysis,transfer related technologies to the private sector, andaddress the ethical, legal, and social issues (ELSI) that may arise from the project.
Breath Sounds Lung sounds Breath Sounds Auscultation of lungs help determine the airway and alveolar integrity, ventilation and presence of abnormality. There are two normal breath sounds. Anatomy and Physiology animations Listed below are a collection of physiology animations and anatomy animations. These animations are intended to support text or lecture and it is important that they are not seen as stand-alone reference material. Notes: If you or your students discover any factual errors in the animations please let me know: email@example.com Some of the animations can only be accessed from the university network - please contact Liz Hodgson in the LDU if you would like them on WebCT so that students can access them externally. Visual detail in Flash animations can often be magnified (click on the animation with the right mouse button and use the zoom control) Here are some animations of organs/organ systems: Cranial nerves (No text version)
Twins Every summer, on the first weekend in August, thousands of twins converge on Twinsburg, Ohio, a small town southeast of Cleveland named by identical twin brothers nearly two centuries ago. They come, two by two, for the Twins Days Festival, a three-day marathon of picnics, talent shows, and look-alike contests that has grown into one of the world's largest gatherings of twins. Dave and Don Wolf of Fenton, Michigan, have been coming to the festival for years. Like most twins who attend, they enjoy spending time with each other.
