Philogiston Theory
Philogiston Theory Phlogiston Theory According to the phlogiston theory, propounded in the 17th century, every combustible substance consisted of a hypothetical principle of fire known as phlogiston, which was liberated through burning, and a residue. The word phlogiston was first used early in the 18th century by the German chemist Georg Ernst Stahl. Stahl declared that the rusting of iron was also a form of burning in which phlogiston was freed and the metal reduced to an ash or calx. The theo

The Matrix
The Matrix In 1949, George Orwell wrote 1984, a stunning novel envisioning haunting images of the future. Fifty years later, The Matrix, a movie directed by the Wachowski brothers, debuted on the big screen featuring mind-blowing special effects and complex kung-fu choreography. There are many obvious similarities between these two works of fiction. For example, both 1984 and The Matrix are dystopian visions of the future, which is to say, both deal with the maintenance of an imperfect society.

Optical Illusions are relevant to aviation in that the main guidance system of most aircraft on most flights is the pilot\'s eyes. Everyone, including pilots, is susceptible to an optical illusion.

Brain Disorders The brain, which weighs only three pounds and is made up of eighty percent water, is the key organ of our nervous system. It is divided into three different parts: the Cerebrum, the Cerebellum, and the Medulla Oblongata. The “gray matter” of the brain is about one-eighth inch thick and it gives the brain its gray color. Inside the brain is the cortex, which is made up of billions of neurons. These neurons extend into the cerebral hemisphere and it controls all mental activity. In

Basics of Psychology I. Biological bases of behavior Students should recognize biological psychology as a perspective of psychology. Specifically, students should recognize: 1. The organization of the nervous system into the CNS and PNS: • The Central Nervous System-CNS- Brain and Spinal Cord. The Peripheral Nervous System-PNS- are the Nerves outside of the brain and spinal cord. 2. The structure and functions of neurons: • Neurons are the basic building blocks of the nervous system.

The Alcohol Disease Being in college, the topic that seems to suffice everyone's attention span would contain reference to consuming a drink with some presence of alcohol. Party, kegger and beer all convert a seemingly dull conversation to a hysterical joke that everyone understands. The person that consumed the most liquor and either passed out or vomited uncontrollably reins over the mere individuals who staggered out of the event only half full. While some crown them the king of the party, ot

Fetal Alcohol Syndrome
Fetal Alcohol Syndrome What is FAS/FASD? Fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS) is a set of physical and mental birth defects that can result when a woman drinks alcohol during her pregnancy. When a pregnant woman drinks alcohol, such as beer, wine, or mixed drinks, so does her baby. Alcohol passes through the placenta right into the developing baby. The baby may suffer lifelong damage as a result. FAS is characterized by brain damage, facial deformities, and growth deficits. Heart, liver, and kidney defe

Most of it is in processing somatic sensory and motor information. Two types of matter are located in the cerebrum. Gray matter is a substance known as the cerebral cortex. It is located in the cerebral nuclei. White matter is deep in the neural cortex and by the cerebral nuclei. Gray matter is the part of th

Alzheimers Disease Alzheimer’s Disease is a progressive, degenerative disease that attacks the brain and results in impaired memory, thinking and behavior (Internet). It is a degenerative disease affecting nerve cells of the frontal and temporal lobes of the cerebrum of the brain. The disease is the major cause of presenile dementia (i.e., the loss of mental faculties not associated with advanced age) and is thought to be the largest single cause of senile dementia as well (Britannica, 306).

Argument of dualism
Argument of dualism
argument of dualism In my mind, dualism is a more attractive view to take when considering the mind-brain issue. The idea that the mind is a separate entity and that it is independent of the physical body is the central point of dualism. One reason it appeals to me is because of my religion, my Catholic upbringing. Introspection is another good reason why dualism is a little more logical to me than materialism.. It logically explains why the mind and brain are separate. Also, the divisibility ar

They were equipped with several specialized types of teeth. Their limbs were positioned more directly under the trunk as opposed to spreading out to the sides. Both of these characteristics are prominent features of mammals. For the past 70 million years mammals have been the dominant animals in terrestria

The brain serves as a regulatory center in which the activities of the whole body are integrated and controlled.

For example: The brain says, "Hey, I want to exercise!" So, it sends a message to the spinal cord, who then gives the message to the nerves, who then deliver the message to the rest of your body.

Whether we realize it or not, sensory receptors play a big part in our everyday life. Without the ability to sense our outside surroundings, we would quickly be put at a disadvantage to those around us. It is often taken for granted, but every facet of life depends on the ability to sense things. From the time when we first hear our alarm clock in the morning, to getting our balance once we get out of bed, then having to see the way to get to the bathroom, and even being able to taste and smell
