Animal Behavior
Animal Behavior
Animal Behavior Biology lb Abstract Animal behavior is predictable. Their behavioral tendencies are influenced by the relationship of its anatomy to their environment. By observing various forms of life, and associating the mechanism of their abilities to perform a behavioral action, evolutionary influence thereafter, can be analyzed and deduced from that point. Introduction The science and study of animal behavior involve an enormous array of complicated factors. For instance, stereotyped resp
Ritalin
Ritalin
Ritalin In today's society we want a quick fix to remedy our problems. Therefore doctors are prescribing the drug, Ritalin, excessively. Although Ritalin is a widely used drug to control AD (H) D, there are other safer alternatives to combat this worldwide disorder. Ritalin, like many other drugs, has several side effects, some of which are severe. Ritalin is in a class of drugs called Methylphetamines. These types of drugs affect everything from thought process to everyday breathing. Ritalin's

Pituitary Gland
Pituitary Gland
Pituitary Gland The pituitary also referred to, as the “master gland of the body” is a double lobed endocrine gland. The pituitary gland secretes several hormones, which regulate bodily processes, including growth, reproduction and numerous metabolic activities. It is located in a cavity of the sphenoid bone, below the hypothalamus, at the base of the brain. The lobes of the pituitary are as distinct in function as they are in position and tissue type. The posterior lobe is made up of an out gro

The Physiological Aspects of Pollution
The Physiological Aspects of Pollution Theo Colborn had been conducting a series of wildlife research experiments in the Great Lakes region when she became convinced that common chemicals widely used in American homes and industries were affecting males of all species. Among the many harmful effects of these seemingly ordinary chemicals were dramatic reductions in fertility and a growing number of gross deformities in the male anatomy, including shrunken penises and testicular problems.

Endocrinal Diseases are also known as hormonal diseases. They involve either excessive or insufficient production of hormones through the endocrine system. These diseases can be both chronic and debilitating. Some of the most common diseases of the endocrine system are Addison’s disease, gigantism, simple goiter, Grave’s disease, diabetes mellitus and Cushing’s syndrome. Addison’s disease is a chronic disorder caused by lack of secretions of the adrenal glands. In most cases, the origin of the
Anabolic Steroids
Anabolic Steroids
Anabolic Steroids Description: Anabolic steroids are performance enhancing drugs. They are a synthetic form of the chemical testosterone that is normally found in the body. By taking anabolic steroids, a person's testosterone level can be raised up to a hundred times more than the usual amount of 2.5 to 10 mg. Per day. The increase in testosterone increases anabolic activity, which results in greater muscle bulk. It also increases protein synthesis and androgenic activity (enhanced secondary sex

Body Systems
Body Systems
Body Systems There are 10 body systems, one of them is the Integumentary (skin). It is composed of hair, skin, nails, sence receptions and oil glands. Its functionis to protect from outside, to regulate the body temperature, to make synthesis of hormones & chemicals and is used as a sense organ. Another one is the Skeletal System (bones). It is made of about 206 bones, that are divided in tho categories: axial bones (in the body by itself) and apendicular bones (arms & legs). We have Joints too.

Pre-Eclampsia and Eclampsia Disorders In Pregnant Women
Pre-Eclampsia and Eclampsia Disorders In Pregnant Women Pre-eclampsia and eclampsia are disorders in pregnant women. Pre- eclampsia is hypertension and eclampsia is the worsening of pre-eclampsia where the woman experiences convulsions or goes into a coma. The complication of eclampsia in a pregnant woman can put her and her unborn child at risk. A risk that may be fatal. This is only to briefly define the disorders. Furthermore, I predict that women who have suffered from eclampsia do need futu
How Nutrients Get in and Wastes Out
How Nutrients Get in and Wastes Out
How Nutrients Get in, and Wastes Out. By Faisal Premji Science 10 Assignment -- Part B In a human being, nutrients are necessary for survival. But how are these nutrients obtained? This report will go into depth on how the food we eat gets into our cells, and how the waste products that we produce get out of the body. Also, the unicellular organism Paramecium will be compared with a human being, in terms of all of the above factors. Dietary Nutrients The chief nutrients in a diet are classified
Ibuprofen
Ibuprofen
Ibuprofen Abstract The project that I chose to research was the effect of Ibuprofen on the heart rate of the daphnia. The reason that I chose to do this was because many people in society use over the counter pain killers without really understanding any of the long term effects of this medicine other than clearing their aches pains, and swelling. One of the leading drugs on the market today is Ibuprofen which you may know as Motrin or Advil. Both drugs are identical except for quantity and pric

Psychology Psychology INTRODUCTION The study of the way people think and behave is called psychology. The field of psychology has a number of sub-disciplines devoted to the study of the different levels and contexts of human thought and behavior. Social psychology, for example, deals with human thought and action in a social context, while physiological psychology is concerned with thought and behavior at the level of neurology. Another division of psychology, comparative psychology compares the

Melatonin And The Pineal Gland
Melatonin And The Pineal Gland Melatonin And The Pineal Gland Set deep in our brains is a tiny gland called the pineal gland. This tiny gland is in charge of the endocrine system, the glandular system that controls most of our bodily functions. The pineal runs our Å’body clocks', and it produces melatonin; the hormone that may prove to be the biggest medical discovery since penicilin, and the key to controlling the aging process. The pineal gland controls such functions as our sleeping cycle and
