The dynamic brain( Visual )

1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Educationalists have suggested that it is better for us to learn certain subjects at certain stages in the development of our brains. Some believe that primary school is the best age to learn foreign languages. It is also argued that motor skills should be learned at an early stage in our lives when we are more sensitive to learning. We used to believe that the bulk of learning could only take place in these development years but in fact what is known brain plasticity can take place until the day we die. In other words, learning is a constant process throughout human life and not reserved for those years at school. Dr. Frederic Dick from Birkbeck College explains how different stages of development affect our ability to learn. Experience expectant learning is the kind of common learning that a human or animal does quite early on, around birth or a little afterwards, whereas experience dependent development relates to changes in the brain induced by aspects of the environment

Mechanisms of metastasis by General Motors Cancer Research Foundation( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In part 1, Richard Klausner, director of the National Cancer Institute, gives the keynote address. He discusses the study of metastases or how cancer progresses. He notes the complexity and contextual issues. He also defines cancer as the accumulation of genetic changes, and as genetic and genomic instability. He speaks for 50 minutes. Dr. Phillip Sharp, MIT, moderator of the first session, introduces Richard Hynes, MIT, whose title is "Cell adhesion changes and invasion of metastases." Dr. Hynes uses slides, speaks for 25 minutes, and answers questions for about 8 minutes at the beginning of part 2. Next, Dr. Peter Herrlich, University of Karlsruhe, Germany, speaks on "Two sides of one in the same molecule CD44: metastases promotion and suppression." Dr. Herrlich speaks for 32 minutes and takes questions for about 5 minutes. In part 3, Edward Harlow, Harvard, moderates the second session and introduces Erkki Ruoslahti, Burnham Institute. Dr. Ruoslahti's topic is "Vascular addresses in metastases and experimental tumor models". He speaks for 40 minutes and takes questions for 7 minutes. The next speaker is Ajit Varki, University of California, San Diego. His topic is cell surfaces and metastases during which he discusses glycans. Dr. Varki speaks for 22 minutes and answers questions for 3 minutes. In part 4, Victor Ling, British Columbia Cancer Research Center, moderates the session and introduces Kari Alitalo, Haartman Institute at the University of Helsinki. Dr. Alitalo's topic is lymph angiogenesis and metastasis. He speaks for about 37 minutes and answers questions for about 2 minutes. The final speaker is Dr. Judah Folkman, Harvard University. The title of his presentation is "New directions in angiogenesis research." He speaks for 22 minutes and answers questions for about 2 minutes. All the speakers illustrated their talks

Molecular biology of the single neuron insight into neuronal development and neurological diseases( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. James Eberwine, of the Dept. of Pharmacology in the School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania, presented a paper concerning gene expression at the single cell level. He used slides and diagrams to illustrate his lecture which was part of the NIH director's Wednesday afternoon lecture series. He discussed how opiates elicit changes in gene expression by focusing on indigenous opiates. This is single cell molecular biology dependent on RNA retrieval. He discussed the complex relationships between opiate interaction and their expression. Case studies of three schizophrenic men were part of the lecture. Dr. Eberwine took questions following the lecture

Hemipelvectomy in the lateral position( Visual )

2 editions published in 1970 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The purpose of this program is to demonstrate diagrammatically and surgically the advantages offered by utilizing the lateral Trendelenberg position in the performance of a hemipelvectomy. The program notes in particular that the gravitational shift of the viscera in this position eliminates the need for retraction in order to expose the pelvic structures. The patient is a 40-year-old female with a recurrent liposarcoma of the thigh. After two previous unsuccessful attempts at eradication, the tumor extends from the gluteal crease to near the popliteal fossa. According to this program it can now only be eradicated by hemipelvectomy. In this program, the anterior flap is made longer than in the conventional hemipelvectomy because the position of the tumor necessitates a shorter than usual posterior flap. In performing the anterior segment of the surgery, the abdomen is thoroughly explored for possible metastasis. The major structures divided during the anterior phase of the procedure include the common iliac vessels, the branches of the hypogastric vessels supplying the pelvic viscera, the soleus muscle and the symphysis pubis. The sacroiliac joint capsule is transected and the posterior flap is dissected off the gluteus muscle. The dissection is carried medial to the lateral margin of the sacrum. An incision is made through the perineal crease that unites the anterior and posterior incisions and exposes the symphysis pubis. The symphysis pubis, urogenital diaphragm, the levator muscle and the sacral nerves are divided in the perineal phase of the procedure. The gluteus muscle is transected near its origin on the sacrum. The iliolumbar ligament is severed. The last segment of the joint capsule on the superior aspect of the sacroiliac joint is severed and the freed extremity is removed. The flaps are trimmed and approximated. The patient is shown eight months postoperatively; there has been no further recurrence or sign of metastasis

Women and heart disease by Timothy Obarski( Visual )

2 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Heart disease used to be thought of as a man's disease, but the reality is more women die from first heart attacks than men. In addition, heart disease can have different symptoms in women than the classic chest pain that has been so well publicized. In this program, we explain why women are equally at risk for a heart attack as men; we look at how hormone therapy can increase that risk, and hear from patients who've discovered ways to lower their risk of having a heart attack.--program description from web site (viewed Nov. 14, 2006, http://www.healthybodyhealthymind.com/)
