BLOOD FLOW MEASUREMENT

Blood is a specialized connective tissue in fluid form that flows through the entire body of a person or animal. Blood flow is the continuous circulation of blood through the cardiovascular system to body tissues and organs. An adequate amount of blood supply is necessary for the proper functioning of all body organs. This is vital as the blood carries and supplies body tissues and organs with its daily metabolic requirements while it ...

CELL TO CELL SIGNALLING - HOW CELL COMMUNICATE WITH EACH OTHER TO PROMOTE AND SUSTAIN LIFE

Cell to cell signaling refers to the transfer of information from one cell to another. This is also called cell signaling or intercellular communication. The ability of cells to perceive and correctly respond to their microenvironment is the basis of development, tissue repair, and immunity as well as normal tissue homeostasis. Errors in cellular information processing are responsible for diseases such as cancer, autoimmunity, and ...

CLINICAL ASPECT OF SPINAL MOTOR SYSTEM - THE BROWN SEQUARD SYNDROME

Brown-Séquard syndrome, also known as Brown-Séquard's hemiplegia and Brown-Séquard's paralysis, is a loss of sensation and motor function (paralysis and anesthesia) that is caused by the lateral hemisection (cutting) of the spinal cord. This may be seen most often in the cervical (neck) or thoracic spine. Other synonyms are hemiparaplegic syndrome, hemiplegia ethemiparaplegiaspinalis, and spinal hemiparaplegia.&nbs...

FACTORS THAT CAN UPREGULATE AND DOWNREGULATE DIGESTION AND ABSORPTION OF CARBOHYDRATE

Digestion is the breakdown of complex food substances into simple and absorbable form by the aid of enzymes using a process known as hydrolysis. Carbohydrate basically are divided into three: Polysaccharides (example Starch), Disaccharides (Sucrose and Lactose), and monosaccharides (Fructose, Galatose and Glucose). Almost all the carbohydrates of the diet are either large polysaccharides or disaccharides, which are combinations...

PUBERTY: Role Of Endocrine System In The Onset And Regulation Of Puberty; Disorders Associated With Puberty.

AbstractThe endocrine system is a system of glands, each of which secretes a type of hormone directly into the bloodstream to regulate the body. Many of the body's hormones influence growth, such as growth hormone, thyroxine, insulin, and corticosteroids (all of which influence growth rate), leptin (which alters body composition), and parathyroid hormone, 1,25-dihydroxy-vitamin D, and calcitonin (all of which affect skeletal ...

MOTILITY AND ASSOCIATED DISORDERS OF THE GASTRO INTESTINAL SYSTEM

ABSTRACT The Gastro intestinal system is vital for overall secretions, digestion, absorption, and movement within the tracts. Secretions involve release of fluids, chemicals and catalytic substances that facilitates digestion and related gastrointestinal tract (GIT) activities. Digestion involves hydrolysis of condensed products of carbohydrates, proteins and fats. Absorption involves movement of molecules across the G...

THE ROLE OF LINGUAL LIPASE IN SALIVA FUNCTION

Lingual lipase is a water soluble enzyme that primarily catalyses the breakdown of fats and converts them to free fatty acids, monoglycerides and diglycerides. They play an important role in food digestion. Lingual lipase which was discovered in 1976 is a member of a family of digestive enzymes called triacylglycerol lipases, that use the catalytic triad of aspartate, and serine to hydrolyze medium- and long-chain triglycerid...
