  1. Effects of Three Road Ice Fighters on Caddisfly SurvivalTue, 10 Jan 2017 20:56:23 PST
    Since salt and other toxins have affected larvae in other studies, we hypothesized that the samples with table salt, MgCl brine, or beet juice brine will have a lower LT50 than the control group. We also hypothesized the larvae would have the highest mortality in salt and the lowest mortality in beet juice brine. The null hypothesis will be that table salt, beet juice brine, and MgCl samples wont differ on the controls group LT50. More...
  2. An Historical Analysis of Lab Techniques as Applies to Current Glial Cell ResearchTue, 10 Jan 2017 20:56:20 PST
    The primary focus of neurology, since the beginning, has been the neuron. This is understandable, neuronal networks and nerves being the main communication mechanism between the brain and the rest of the body. However, this focus on neurons has overshadowed and delayed research on the other cells in the brain. Glial cells, or neuroglia, are defined as all cells in the brain that are not electrically excitable neurons or vascular cells. This definition of glial cells introduced by Rudolf Ludwig Karl Virchow in 1858. Until relatively recently, the idea that glial cells are simply passive elements of the brain that only function as support for neurons dominated. Now however, scientists are discovering that glial cells do in fact have an active electrical function in the brain. In this paper, I will look at the history of glial cell research, and developments in research technology and techniques. I will analyze a 2014 publication from Mainz University in Germany, which looks at electrical communication between NG2 glial cells and neurons, to illustrate the importance of these developments for current research.

  3. Childhood Diabetes Type 1 and 2: General Pathophysiology, Treatment and Comparison of Diabetes Education, Treatment, and Treatment Goals between the United States and Europe and Hypothesized OutcomesTue, 10 Jan 2017 20:56:17 PST
    The goals of this paper are to bring awareness of the increasing diagnoses of diabetes in children, the resources available to help educate the diabetic child and his/her family, the importance of early treatment, diet, and compliance with treatment, and how the education readily available, treatment, and treatment goals differ between European nations and the United States. Multiple topics will be discussed within this paper, the pathophysiological differences between Type I Diabetes Mellitus (T1DM) and Type II Diabetes Mellitus (T2DM), the differences in the treatment methods for each, nutritional needs, challenges throughout childhood, and the differing outcomes for the two types of Diabetes. Also to be discussed are the differences in how pediatric patients and their families are educated, and the educational tools that are used and readily available in the United States vs. European Nations. Additionally, how the treatment plans and goals differ between the United States and European Nations. Finally, hypothesizes will be drawn on the potential future outcomes of the differing Diabetic treatments and educational methods that are practiced in the United States and Europe. More...
