How has the study of human development evolved?

Sounds like you are: Writing a paper for a class. It really wouldn't be fair to have healthtap doctors do school assignments. There are a number of articles at this site (http://www.Nichd.Nih.Gov/pages/index.Aspx) which may provide insights. ...Read more

How can organisms similarities in anatomy and embryology provide evidence for evolution?

How can organisms similarities in anatomy and embryology provide evidence for evolution?

Ontogeny recapitul-: ates phylogeny. That means that during embryonic development, the embryo goes through physical forms that mimic your ancestors, rather than just develop right into a human. An early human embryo looks very much like our amphibian and then dinosaur (well, chicken, which is really the same thing) ancestors, and then many early structures wither and die, being replaced by more advanced species. ...Read more

What is the human genome project and whose genome was sequenced?

What is the human genome project and whose genome was sequenced?

Map of Human DNA: The Human Genome Project created a map of human DNA and was completed in 2003. Anonymous samples were donated by several people, but the majority of the "genome map" is from a single male donor from Buffalo, NY. The identity of this individual is not known by researchers who sequenced the DNA. ...Read more

How are draft sequence and finished sequence in relation to human genome project different?

Incomplete versus : In 2000, the human genome project announced an assembled working draft of the sequence of the human genome. They assembled over lapping fragments covering 97% of the human genome. The draft was much more complete than they had expected--over 22.1 billion basis of raw sequence data totaling 7-fold sequence coverage. 24% was completely finished, and 50% in near finished or better form. ...Read more

Does The Amount of HGH Human Growth Hormone correlate a Person Jaw Size and Cranial Capacity?

To a limited: extent. After puberty, growth hormone secreting tumors can lead to changes in jaw and head dimensions. This is called acromegaly. Why do you ask? Hopefully you're not taking growth hormone without a medical reason, as this is stupid and dangerous. ...Read more

What is the human genome project?

What is the human genome project?

The Human Genome: Project (HGP) was an international scientific research project with the goal of determining the sequence of chemical base pairs which make up human DNA, and of identifying and mapping all of the genes of the human genome from both a physical and functional standpoint. ...Read more

Which environment factors influence the evolution of asperger's, parallel to the genetic factor?

Which environment factors influence the evolution of asperger's, parallel to the genetic factor?

Social interaction: Genetic issues are not really understood. Autism spectrum disorders are complex and evolve over time. We are seeing more children in whom autism symptoms resolve as they mature. Applied behavioral analysis and social interaction contribute much. ...Read more

Can m.R.I. Or n.M.R. Scan detect all prevailing infections in the human body ?

Can m.R.I. Or n.M.R. Scan detect all prevailing infections in the human body ?

MRI Scans: Mri scans are performed on isolated parts of the body for specific reasons. If a physician is concerned for brain, spine or joint infections, than a targed MRI is a great test. It would never be used to screen a whole body. It would take hours and be very expensive. As an example, a brain MRI takes about 45 minutes. A total spine MRI takes up to 2.5 hours. ...Read more

Why don't physiology books show refraction at the anterior surface of the cornea?

Why don't physiology books show refraction at the anterior surface of the cornea?

Too specific.: A general physiology book already has a lot to cover without delving into physiologic optics. If you want to dig deeper, check out general optics texts to understand basics like indices of refraction, followed by eye anatomy and physiology texts. The bscs series volume on cornea is helpful. Finally, texts about corneal topography, higher-order aberrations, and lasik would be fun. War eagle! ...Read more

How could artificial selection help shape darwin's theory of evolution?

Origin of Species: Darwin began by observing the amazing impact of artificial selection over a short time. This is recorded in his book, and he then brought his observations on natural selection from nature. Although we did not discover the molecular mechanisms until the 20th century, the whole scientific world found him persuasive as far as he went in his own time. ...Read more

Does culture play a role in the acceptance of congenital abnormalities?

Does culture play a role in the acceptance of congenital abnormalities?

Yes: In Japan, there is a terrible stigma to many birth defects, and even non-defects like being left-handed. Among ignorant people of any kind (and forgive me if saying "ignorant" offends the local multiculturalists), birth defects lead to superstitious fear and often ostracism -- or refusal to get needed corrections ("It's God's punishment.") Having a birth defects is hard enough without all this. ...Read more

Can we find the gender of baby with anomaly scan report images. ?

Can we find the gender of baby with anomaly scan report images. ?

In certain countries: The Pre-natal Diagnostic Techniques Act (PNDT) of 2002 in your native country of India prohibits ultrasound physicians from determining the gender of your infant, in an attempt to reduce female feticide. Although it is possible that your physician saw the gender of your baby during scanning, it is unlikely that a picture of the sex organs was saved. Be happy with your baby regardless of gender. ...Read more

Are cleft lips/palates discovered/diagnosed during an anatomy scan?

Are cleft lips/palates discovered/diagnosed during an anatomy scan?

At birth: Cleft lip and/or cleft palate is visible at birth, and will be noted by the pediatrcian who examines the newborn. There is a rare anatomic anomaly called a submucous cleft, where the palatal bone does not fuse, but the overlying tissue looks normal, that is discoverable by palpation and x-ray. ...Read more
