Unit 3.1 DB: Metabolism

 

Industrial fermentation is the use of microbial fermentation to make products useful to humans such as bread, beer, wine, cheese, biofuel and sewage treatment.  Describe one example of industrial fermentation.  Your description should list the reactants (inputs), products (output), and organism used.  Be as specific as possible.  For example, different cheese are made using different microorganisms and slightly different ingredient. Lastly, explain the advantages and disadvantages of a microorganism using fermentation to generate energy compared to aerobic respiration.

Bio assesment 1

This assessment requires you to write a report assessing the basic environmental health principles, theories, and issues of an emerging or reemerging disease.

To begin, select one emerging or reemerging disease to research for this report. Note: The WHO Emerging Diseases and CDC Web sites (both linked in the Resources under the Internet Resources heading) list a variety of relevant diseases.

Then, craft a 3–4-page report that analyzes the disease and addresses the following points: Provide a brief historical account of the disease selected. Consider why this disease is emerging or reemerging. What areas of the globe are currently affected by this disease? How is it transmitted? What is the incubation period? What is the treatment for this disease? What is the role of vaccines in combatting this disease? If there is no vaccine, why not? What is the predicted prognosis of recovery and residual effect?

Your report should be logically organized around a point you would like to make regarding the emerging or reemerging disease you select. Consider the MEAL Plan to help organize your thoughts: Main Idea: What is the main point or idea that you want your reader to remember about this disease? Evidence: What does the research say? Support your point with evidence from the literature you have researched. (This is where you would include facts about the history, transmission, incubation, treatment, and prevention of the disease. Refer to your sources when you provide your evidence.) Assess: Summarize main ideas from articles related to the disease. Apply health principles and theories that relate directly or indirectly to your main point. Make explicit links between source articles and your current report. Link: Integrate and combine information from your source articles to your main point or idea. Additional Requirements

Use the APA Paper Template (linked in the Resources under the Required Resources heading) to format your report. Written Communication:Written communication should be free of errors that detract from the overall message. Length: This report should be 3–4 pages in content length. Include a separate title page and a separate references page. Font and Font Size: Times New Roman, 12-point, double-spaced. Use Microsoft Word. APA Formatting: Resources and in-text citations should be formatted according to APA (6th edition) style and formatting. Number of Resources: You are required to cite a minimum of 2 scholarly resources. You may conduct independent research for resources and references to support your report. Provide a reference list and in-text citations for all of your resources, using APA format. You may cite texts and authors from the Resources.

Sports Concussions and Traumatic Brain Injury

Be sure you have read the article “Neurological consequences of traumatic brain injuries in sports,” by Helen Ling, John Hardy, and Henrik Zetterberg. This reading is available through the following link: 

https://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S104474311500041X?via%3Dihub OR https://doi.org/10.1016/j.mcn.2015.03.012

Ling, H., Hardy, J., & Zetterberg, H. (2015). Neurological consequences of traumatic brain injuries in sports.Molecular and Cellular Neuroscience. Amsterdam, Netherlands: Elsevier. Article in Press.Professional as well as amateur athletes in contact sports including football, soccer, boxing and hockey are at risk for repeated concussions. Fortunately, the medical community is examining the long-term effects of repeated concussions or traumatic brain injuries (TBIs) on athletes with the goal of identifying preventative measures as well as treatments. In 2012, the National Football League donated $30 million dollars to the Foundation for the National Institutes of Health to support research in brain injuries. The Ling et al. (2015) article from this week’s assigned reading discusses how chronic brain injuries lead to chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), a progressive degenerative disease that includes memory loss, confusion, aggression, depression, abnormal impulse control, impaired judgment, and ultimately dementia.

Respond to the following:

1. What are the types of brain injuries that occur in high-impact sports?

2. At the cellular level, how are neurons and glia believed to be affected by TBIs?

3. What are the macroscopic features (neuropathology) of chronic TBI? How is the structure of the brain affected?

4. Do you believe there should be new rules and regulations and/or development of new protective gear? Why or why not?

5. What do you think should be done to protect professional players from TBIs? Would you recommend the same interventions for amateur players? Why or why not?

6. Based on what you have learned this week, how would you advise a friend about their child’s participation in junior league football?

respond to student 100 words

For this week’s discussion I am going to talk about the brain and its major subdivisions and landmarks. There are two directional terms that are used when referring to the brain. The first is rostral, which means “towards the forehead” (Saladin, 2015). The second term is caudal, which means “toward the spinal cord” (Saladin, 2015).

            The brain can be divided into three major portions: the cerebrum, cerebellum, and the brainstem (Saladin, 2015). The cerebrum is by far the largest portion of the brain, about 83% of the total volume, and can be further subdivided into two hemispheres, the left cerebral hemisphere and the right cerebral hemisphere (Saladin, 2015). The hemispheres are separated by a long groove called the longitudinal fissure (Saladin, 2015). Each hemisphere is made up of think folds called gyri, and the shallow grooves that separate each gyri are called sulci (Saladin, 2015).  Furthermore, each hemisphere contains the different lobes of the brain, one for each hemisphere. From rostral to caudal, there are the frontal lobes, temporal lobes (on the side above where the ear would be), the parietal lobes, and the occipital lobes (Saladin, 2015). At the bottom of the longitudinal fissure, deep inside the brain, there lies a bundle of nerve fibers called the corpus callosum (Saladin, 2015).

            Next, there is the cerebellum, the second largest portion of the brain, about 10% of the brain’s volume (Saladin, 2015). It is also made up of gyri and sulci, and contains about 50% of the brain’s neurons (Saladin, 2015). The cerebellum is located underneath the occipital lobe in the posterior cranial fossa, and is separated from the cerebrum by the transverse cerebral fissure (Saladin, 2015).

            Finally, there is the brainstem. It is the smallest part of the brain, and its major components, from rostral to caudal, are the diencephalon, midbrain, pons, and the medulla oblongata (Saladin, 2015). The brainstem is the part of the brain that branches down and connects with the spinal cord (Saladin, 2015).

            For remembering the anatomy of the brain, I really liked the example the textbook used. The text describes the brainstem being oriented like a stalk with the cerebrum and cerebellum being perched on top like a mushroom cap (Saladin, 2015).
