The video, Chemistry of life, linked to this chapter provides an explanation of what leads to the emergent properties of water and how these properties provide conditions for living organisms to thrive. At one time, it was thought that living things could be found only where a moderate range of abiotic factors (such as temperature & pH) existed. Since the discovery of extremophiles, micro-organisms that thrive in extreme environments, our understanding of where life can exist has changed. Some extremophiles live in hot, acidic sulfur springs and some even live near the openings of deep ocean hydrothermal vents.
Based on our current knowledge of extremophiles that exist on planet Earth, what does the existence of life in such extreme environments say about the possibility of life on other planets? Provide at least one specific example.

NAME: Jason Brewer Unit 1 Discussion
Due to the discovery and research of extremophiles on Earth, the possibility of life on other planets has increased. This is because if a basic form of life can survive and grow in an extreme condition on Earth, what is stopping life from growing on other planets that may also house an extreme environment. Seth Shostak a senior astronomer at the Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence (SETI) Institute talks about this idea, and how extremophiles that live at the bottom of our oceans, are living in conditions that are similar to environments on Jupiter’s moons or Europa’s ocean (American Museum of Natural History, 2012). These findings and the research that followed are huge strides in the study of extraterrestrial life and maybe enough evidence for further research into travelling to other planets to find life.

Tennessee (1-0) opened the season with a victory, topping Lenoir-Rhyne 86-41 on Tuesday night. All five starters finished the game in double figures, led by Jordan Bone’s 18 points. Kyle Alexander chipped in a career-high 16 points while tallying four blocks in the contest.
The Ragin’ Cajuns (1-0) come to Knoxville off a 121-80, season-opening win over the University of the Virgin Islands. The reigning Sun Belt Conference champions had six players in double figures, led by a pair of 19-point performances from JaKeenan Gant and Malik Marquetti. As a team, ULL shot 67.1 percent from the field (including 58.3 percent from three) while forcing 22 turnovers.
The Louisiana Ragin’ Cajuns (1-0) enter Friday night’s matchup in Thompson-Boling Arena with aspirations to improve upon an impressive 2017-18 campaign.Sun Belt Conference Coach of the Year Bob Marlin led the Ragin’ Cajuns to a record-breaking year as Louisiana won a school-record 27 games and earned its first outright Sun Belt Conference regular-season title since the 1999-2000 season. The Ragin’ Cajuns won 20 of 22 games from December through February while dominating the league statistics, finishing as the league leader in 10 categories, including scoring offense (83.2), field-goal percentage (.464), free-throw percentage (.761) and assists (17.4).While first-team All-Sun Belt Conference players Frank Bartley and Bryce Washington graduated, the Ragin’ Cajuns return three starters, including Sun Belt Conference Newcomer of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year JaKeenan Gant (13.7 ppg, 5.8 rpg, 2.3 bpg).With nine upperclassmen on the roster and three transfers from “Power Five” programs, Louisiana has the experience and talent to once again compete for a Sun Belt title in 2018-19 and will offer a good early-season test for the Volunteers.In their season opener against Virgin Islands, the Ragin’ Cajuns were lights out from the floor, knocking down 67 percent of their shots in a 121-80 victory. Gant finished with 19 points, four rebounds, three assists and three blocks in 25 minutes of action. Senior guard Marcus Stroman, a transfer from South Carolina, was on the cusp of recording a triple-double with 10 assists, eight points and eight rebounds.
Tennessee will make its fourth all-time appearance in the NIT Season Tip-Off later this month. The four-team field consists of the Vols, Kansas, Louisville and Marquette, taking place in Brooklyn, N.Y., at the Barclays Center.
Tennessee opens play with a matchup against Louisville on Nov. 21 at 5 p.m. ET. The other side of the bracket features a contest between Kansas and Marquette. The winners and losers of each game on Nov. 21 will meet two days later on Nov. 23.In its last NIT Season Tip-Off appearance, UT won the 2010 championship with victories over VCU and Villanova. The Vols also appeared in the 1992 and 2006 NIT Season Tip-Offs. The Big Orange defeated Rutgers before falling to Seton Hall in 1992. In 2006, UT suffered losses to Butler and North Carolina at Madison Square Garden.Both Tennessee (No. 6) and the Jayhawks (No. 1) enter the season ranked in the top 10 of the AP preseason poll. If the two teams were to face off and the rankings hold, the game would mark UT’s fifth contest against a top-10 non-conference foe during the last three seasons.
SCHOFIELD, WILLIAMS APPROACHING 1,000-POINT MILESTONE
Senior wing Admiral Schofield and junior forward Grant Williams enter the season less than 100 points away from eclipsing the 1,000-point mark for their careers.A total of 48 Vols have accomplished that feat during their time on Rocky Top, with Robert Hubbs III being the most recent addition to the 1K Club in 2016-17.
Schofield (960 points) and Williams (933 points) could both reach the milestone within the first month of the season. The last time a UT duo achieved the feat in the same season was during the 2013-14 campaign, as eventual NBA Draft picks Jordan McRae (1,521 points) and Jarnell Stokes (1,129 points) joined the club while helping lead Tennessee to a Sweet Sixteen appearance.
All-time, UT has had 10 duos reach 1,000 points in the same season, including Ernie Grunfeld and Bernard King in 1975-76.
Along with this year’s All-SEC duo, junior guard Lamonté Turner also could surpass 1,000 career points this season. At 644 career points, the 2018 SEC Co-Sixth Man of the Year needs just 356 points to reach 1,000. Last year, Turner finished the season with 381 points. If all three were to eclipse the mark, it would mark the first time a Tennessee trio has done so in the same year.
SCHOFIELD, WILLIAMS NAMED TO NAISMITH WATCH LIST
Tennessee’s All-SEC duo of Admiral Schofield and Grant Williams continued garnering preseason recognition Monday, as the Atlanta Tipoff Club announced its watch list for the 2019 Citizen Naismith Trophy Men’s Player of the Year.Tennessee was one of 11 schools to have multiple players on the list, including Duke, Gonzaga, Indiana, Kansas, Kansas State, Kentucky, Nevada, North Carolina, Villanova and Virginia. The Vols could also potentially face 13 players named to the list during the regular season.
WILLIAMS TABBED TO WOODEN AWARD PRESEASON WATCH LIST
Grant Williams racked up his third preseason national player of the year consideration, as the John R. Wooden Award presented by Wendy’s announced its Preseason Top 50 Watch List.Chosen by a preseason poll of national college basketball experts, the list is comprised of 50 student-athletes who are the early front-runners for the most prestigious honors in college basketball, the Wooden Award All American Team and Most Outstanding Player Award.The Wooden Award All American Team will be announced the week of the “Elite Eight” round of the NCAA Tournament. The winner of the 2019 John R. Wooden Award will be presented by Wendy’s during the ESPN College Basketball Awards on Friday, April 12, 2019

The nervous system and the brain have several diverse forms in different types of organisms. From simple nerve nets to complex systematically layered structures, the nervous system comes in various sizes as well as organizational morphologies. The range and structural differences between brains are indicative of the variety of environment and ecological niches organisms inhabit, as well as their different (Powers, 2014). Therefore, whether simple or elaborate, the nervous system and the brain are adaptive. As articulated in Elphick, (2013), Holland et al. (2013), DeFelipe (2013), Holland (2015), and Torday and Miller (2016), both the central and peripheral nervous system have evolved depending on the selective environmental pressures to which organisms have been subjected. Consequently, in investigating the evolution of the different parts of the brain of different vertebrates, some general morphological and functional features are apparent. For example, in certain reptiles (snakes and lizards) and some mammals (dogs), neural structures such as the olfactory bulb are more advanced and of considerable size (Tattersall, 2006). These features are less prominent in other organisms such as the herbivores and humans.
The same trend is apparent when moving from early primitive life forms to more evolved organisms. This is particularly true in the function of the lower brainstem as well as cerebral cortex (Torday and Miller, 2016). In most vertebrates, therefore, including mammals and reptiles, the underlying architecture of brains, particularly the brainstem, can be recognized across organisms despite the subtle differences that might exist among them (Rehkämper and Zilles, 1991). Correlated with the development of the brain is the capacity to learn. Mammals, birds, and mollusks show a higher learning capacity than others. (Ghysen, A., 2003). This article compares the Central Nervous System (CNS) of reptiles and mammals. The (CNS) comprised of the brain and the spinal cord (Messé et al., 2014). The CNS also contains most of the neurons (nerve cells) in the body that includes the peripheral nervous system.
Similarities in the CNS
The nervous system in both mammals and reptiles is organized into discernible regions based on structure and intended function. For example, both groups have similar subdivisions of the brain: the forebrain (divided into the telencephalon and diencephalon), the midbrain, and the hindbrain (Ghysen, 2003). In mammals, the structure of the hindbrain remains more conserved than the forebrain does (Ghysen, 2003). Reptiles and mammals share similar parts of the brain. These parts are the basal ganglia, brain stem, and cerebellum. These brain parts handle identical body functions such as the coordination of movement, breathing, balance, and the simple urges of survival like defense, flight, mating, and feeding (Elphick et al., 2013; Steinhausen et al., 2016. In both organisms, the cerebellum has various segments that include the archicerebellum, paleocerebellum, and the neocerebellum. Collectively, the cerebellum is concerned with a host of functions including balance and equilibrium as well (skilled) movements (Naumann et al., 2015). In reptiles, the paleocerebellum forms the greatest mass of the cerebellum while in mammals the development of the entire cerebellum is linked with the cerebral cortex (Messé et al., 2014).
Differences in the CNS
Compared to mammals, the brain of reptiles is significantly smaller. The reptilian cortex also consists of far fewer subdivisions than that of mammals, particularly when compared to primates, canidae, and rodents (Laurent et al., 2016). Unlike mammals, reptiles also have a variety of mechanoreceptors, which they use to not only sense vibrations but also sound and other forms of mechanical disturbance (Siminoff and Kruger, 1968). This is true especially in snakes. Reptiles have muscle spindles spread across their body that help detect and control the stretch of their body muscles (Siminoff and Kruger, 1968).
Moreover, thgroughout the mammalian evolutionary history, the mammilkian hindbrain retained much of the initial recognizable structure (Ghysen, 2003) as an enlarged anterior segment of the spinal cord. It encloses a network of dorsal and ventral sensory and motor nerve endings. In contrast, the reptilian hind brain is just a longitudinal continuation of the spinal cord (Naumann et al., 2015). Very little is known, whether this spinal cord-brain continuity formation in reptilians houses some of the cranial nerves as it does in mammals. In mammals, 25 cranial nerves can be observed; innervating the muscles of the head region and specialized sense organs, including taste buds on the surface of the body. Moreover, the telencephalon in mammals consists of a dorsal pallial area that differentiates into the cerebral cortex region (Kaas, 2011).
Similarities in the function of CNS
Reptiles and mammals harbor a diverse set of sensory organs that use the brain as the central processing hub (Naumann et al., 2015). According to Naumann et al. (2015) the retina of both mammals and reptiles, captures visual information and relays it for processing in the pallium section of the brain via the tectum and the thalamus. Correspondingly, the olfactory cues from the nose first pass through the olfactory bulb before reaching the pallium. Both reptiles and mammals have a clear three-layered cerebral cortex that is structurally identical to that of the mammalian allocortex (Naumann et al., 2015). The ventral pallium of reptiles also forms the dorsal ventricular ridge, a structure whose equivalent in mammals is still a question of debate among anatomists (Naumann et al., 2015).
Differences in function of CNS
The differences between the nervous systems of reptiles and mammals are enunciated by differences in the perception/sensing of chemical cues. Generally, receptors that perceive chemical stimuli are described as taste (or gustatory) if they sense dissolved molecules. They are however olfactory (smell) when they detect airborne stimuli. While most mammals tend to rely on their taste buds located in the mouth to discern cues, most reptiles, especially the snakes, rely more on their sense of smell than on taste (Siminoff and Kruger, 1968). In reptiles, these smell detectors are varied and are located in the nasal passages, where they can also undertake sniffing functions, similar to that of our canine counterparts. Most reptiles, particularly the snakes, and certain lizards also have the Jacobsons Organ, which they use to taste odors directly from their buccal cavities (Noble and Kumpf, 1936).
Mammals and reptiles further exhibit significant dissimilarity in the manner in which they perceive and regulate thermal energy (Tattersall, Cadena, and Skinner, 2006). While both organisms have thermal sensory organs located on their skin, reptiles have other special organs that are more sensitive to ambient temperature variation than mammals do. For example, certain types of snakes such as pythons and rattlesnakes have pit organs with a remarkable capacity to sense changes in temperature. The sensitivity of this organ allows snakes to detect and trace radiant heat source (Tattersall, Cadena, and Skinner, 2006).
Moreover, unlike mammals, reptiles are ectothermic organisms. They are therefore behaviorally as well as physiologically adapted to fluctuating temperatures. This adaptation also makes their brain accustomed to extreme thermal conditions; an attribute that is missing in mammals. Additionally, certain reptiles like the freshwater turtle (Chrysemys picta), has evolved nervous and brain adaptations that enable it to survive in anoxic conditions for protracted periods (Naumann et al., 2015). Though this ability to survive hypoxic environments is not yet clearly understood, it is believed the mechanism underlying this adaptation can be exploited for the treatment of brain injury caused by ischemia (Naumann et al., 2015).
Another significant difference between the brain and nervous system of mammals and reptiles is that the region of the brain where emotions are processed is more developed mammals. This region is associated with the limb system to interpret these emotion (Naumann et al., 2015).
Therefore, it is the seat of value judgments and hence exerts a strong influence on our behavioral patterns. The mammalian brain also has an outer brain layer known as the cortex. This region helps mammals analyze and make complex decisions as well as take control of their emotions (DeFelipe, 2013). On the other hand, the reptilian brain is subdivided into a lateral cortex (equivalent to the piriform in mammals) and a medial cortex that sandwiches the dorsal cortex in between. The dorsal cortex serves to receive multi-modal inputs such as visual inputs in turtles (Laurent et al., 2016). Comparative anatomists have also found little evidence of the presence of somatosensory areas in the cortex region of the reptilian brain (Willemet, 2012).
This comparative study has revealed that the vertebrate brain and spinal cord configuration has a seemingly identical general plan. Regarding function, the peripheral nervous system comprises of a host of sensory and motor nerves. These nerves carry signals back and forth between the CNS and other parts of the body. The spinal cord is confined within the vertebral column. Its primary function is to provide reflex reactions independent of the brain. It also receives inputs from the brains higher centers. While this structural configuration reflects a general basic outline in function, it has also been shown that these brains are different both structurally and functionally. Therefore, although the CNS of reptiles and mammals have similar structure and function, they exhibit some fundamental differences such as kin, and temperature regulation. These differences not only reflect their evolutionary history but also reveals their respective adaptations to their environments.
