PsychSim 5: Brain and Behavior 21 PsychSim 5: BRAIN AND BEHAVIOR Name: Jennifer Lassiter Section: Module 1 Date: 1/23/2013 In this activity you will take a tour of the human brain and explore the major brain regions to discover the functions of each region or area. Functional Specialization • In terms of brain function, what is functional specialization? Each function of the nervous system is controlled by a specific cluster of neurons in a specific part of the brain. • Why is the principle of complex communication important to understand? Because this principle explains how the brain works,
"Anatomy (structure) and physiology (function) are very closely connected. Explain how the two are related and give an example of how a physician, nurse, or allied health professional would use this information to deliver quality care." "As a science, anatomy is often defined as the study of the structure of an organism and the relationships of its parts." "Physiology is the study of the functions of living organisms and their parts." Both of the above statements are pulled directly from the very first paragraph in our reading material.

* 1. Please define the terms anatomy and physiology. * Anatomy is the study of the body’s structure and physiology is the study of the body’s function. Explain the connection between anatomy and physiology within the human body; basically how do they influence one another? * Anatomy and physiology influence each other by allowing people to grasp changes and symptoms that occur with certain diseases.
Knowing what plane a specific image was taken can help diagnose and locate conditions like cancer, blood clots, and kidney disease. Body cavity approach is the study of different body cavities and the organs with in them. Body cavities help divide the body into sections or compartments and help give organs a specific “place” in the body. This approach is often used when studying a specific organ like the brain in the cranial cavity or an entire system like the gastrointestinal system which is in the abdominopelvic cavity. Body cavities can also be useful in observing how a disease affects numerous organs with in
The skills of communication are also vital in attending to the needs of patients whom healthcare workers encounter. How you will be assessed for unit 4: This unit consists of four outcomes which will be assessed via a workbook (or alternative method agreed in advance with your assessor). Outcomes | Assessment | Criteria | 1 Understand why communication is important in the work setting. | Knowledge Workbook | 1.1 Identify different reasons why people communicate 1.2 Explain how effective communication affects all aspects of own work. 1.3 Explain why it is important to observe an individual’s reactions when communicating with them.
| | 2.4 Suggest ways of improving the communication process in a health and social care setting | L3. Be able to explore the use of information andcommunication technology(ICT) in health and social care | 3.1 Access and use standard ICT software packages to support work in health and social care settings. | | 3.2 Analyse the benefits of using ICT in health and social care settings for users of services, care workers and care organizations. | | 3.3 Analyse how legal considerations in the use of ICT impact on health and social care settings.
Below is an image of the chemical structure of creatine and of the "energized" form of creatine, phosphocreatine (PCr), used by the cells of our body. Creatine in Clinical Trials Because of creatine's broad physiological importance, creatine supplementation is currently being tested in clinical trials for many human diseases involving the body's nervous and muscular systems. The Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) is currently planning a multi-center trial to test the effectiveness of creatine in humans with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS, or Lou Gehrig's disease). Please give to the MDA and help support research investigating the neuroprotective consequences of creatine supplementation. Click here for other examples of the ongoing clinical trials employing creatine.
This assignment also seeks to assess the student’s ability to critically analyze organizational good practice regarding communication and will be assessing their knowledge of the application of ICT in the field of Health and Social Care (including legal frameworks). Specification of Assessment TASK 1 : Choose a client with whom you currently work with or are familiar with. Provide a brief background history of this client and: 1. Explainand discuss the possible values and cultural factors which may influence the way this client communicates. (LO2.1) This criteria is linked to criteria 1.2 of Unit 4 Personal and Professional development.
Tamika Camano September 7, 2013 Instructional Technology Professor Budoff COMPREHENSIVE CLASSROOM TECHNOLOGY PLAN Rationale The Comprehensive Classroom Technology Plan will explain the five aspects of the plan, which are the Mission and Vision Statement, the Communication Plan, Integrating Technology, Software to Support Assessment Technology Ethics in the Classroom. An explanation of each segment of the plan will be discussed along with why it is and important part of the plan. Section One: Mission and Vision Statement A mission and vision statement is important in developing a comprehensive classroom technology plan. A properly planned mission and vision statement can facilitate “the advancement of technology, encouraging lifelong learning, and promoting professionalism. (American Journal of Health System Pharmacy)” The vision statement is a snapshot of where you want to be in your plan and the mission statement is the roadmap that you follow to get to your destination.
