If the DNA in a cell contains the information to the entire organism, but uses only that portion of the information that is required for its life's purpose and and we know that only a small percentage of the brain is used by humans would it be possible that each human being also contains all the information of the entire organism of which it is a part. This is a question I've pondered over for at least a day and a half well we do you know that quantum physics tells us that at any point in time all possibilities exist and once you focus on one the rest drops out of existence. if we could tap into information housed by the brain as DNA does the cell possibilities would be endless but first we must understand what DNA is and does. the ancient scripture of our genetic code that's written in a language that all life can read. DNA is a molecule shaped are like a long twisted ladder or a double helix. The Rolls of the latter are made out of four different kinds of smaller molecules these are the letters of the genetic alphabet the particular arrangement of the letters spell out the instructions for all living things telling them how to grow, move, digest, sense the environment heal and reproduce the DNA double helix is a molecular machine made of hundred billion parts called atoms there is many atoms in a single molecule of DNA as there are stars in the galaxy. when a living cell divides into two each one takes a complete copy of the DNA. There are about 37 trillion cell in an adult human body. now with the information that you now know about DNA and cell how can this information related to the brain and the body? much like DNA the brain has stored information about the body some we know and some is still a mystery. so how deep do we want to go here are we talking about remembering something that we put away last week and just can't for the life of us remember or are we talking about the subconscious level of cognitive thinking either way we're still using way more than a small percentage of our brain most of the time that 10 percent that you heard about that's just a myth.. so you need more proof ok just for fun let's say hypothetically that you want to find your keys and just don't remember where you put them well there's this thing called RAS. the reticular activating system it's actually in the brain stem. RAS is this set of nuclei in the brain of vertebrates it is responsible for regulating arousal and sleep wake transition RAS also consists of evolutionary areas of the brain which are crucial to survival and protection during adverse periods. As as a result, the rest you don't function during an inhibitory of hypnosis. RAS role is like a gatekeeper it screens out most of the information of incoming data from
It happens when nerve cells (neurons) in a part of the brain called the substantia nigra gradually die. These cells normally produce a chemical called dopamine that helps to relay messages between areas of the brain that control body movement. The death of cells in this area of the brain leads to abnormally low levels of dopamine, which makes it difficult for a person with Parkinson's disease to control muscle tension and muscle movement, both at rest and during periods of activity.…
Some studies show there is no link between the cell phone use and brain cancer, however, some technical proof does live and according to Federal Drug Administration (FDA) suggests is worth additional studies. Some studies carry that cell
phone radiation is not a substantial hazard, but proving that cell phones are absolutely safe will be near impossible ("Cell Phones, Cancers and Brain Tumors. What is the REAL Story?", 2010).…
The MECP2 gene is very important for the development of the brain and any mutations of this gene slow the brains development. The gene plays a large role in making connections between nerve cells in the brain. Rett syndrome is now considered an X-linked dominant disorder after much research in 1999. Rett syndrome is caused by impairment in the methylation of DNA.…
Nucleus: a large membrane enclosed structure that contains the cell’s genetic material in the form of DNA. It is the control tower.
Cytoplasm: is the portion of the cell outside the nucleus.
Nucleus membrane or envelope: allows things to enter and leave the nucleus.
Nucleolus: this is where ribosomes are made and assembled.
Ribosomes: proteins are assembled on ribosomes.…
Nucleus Quite large Circular Plant/Animal
Usually surrounded by ER Contains materials such as DNA and controls cell activities Very important because it controls the cell
Nucleolus Average Circular Plant/Animal
Inside the Nucleus Produces Ribosomes Not so important
Ribosomes Very small Little dots Plant/Animal
They settle on the ER which creates a bumpy surface and are also found in the cytoplasm. Support for other cell functions or can be used as enzymes.…
Histones: DNA tightly coiled around proteins
Nucleosome: DNA and histones together to make a bead-like structure
These nucleosome fibers are dispersed into the nucleus so they are not visible for most of the cell cycle. During mitosis the nucleosomes tightly pack together to make chromosomes.
During DNA replication, the DNA molecule separates into two strands, then produces two new complementary strands…
“Brain -- size”
...a-priori approach, white people had larger brains than others because they are “smarter”
-Brain-size-ASIAN (smarter because they had larger brains)
Robert Bean (1906)
(robust - white people)
Franklin Mall (1909)
-BLIND - not knowing the race of the sample/select study group
Why human variation does not constitute “race”
1. human variation is fluid. (the fluidity of change and difference in humans.)
-It is a continuum. (a…
They can be collected from, “umbilical cord, amniotic fluid, bone marrow, adipose tissue, brain and teeth” (Herrera 299).
In the 1990’s scientists found stem cells in the brain, they agreed upon that those stem cells differentiate into three different major types of cells in a mature brain (Brandon 2815). This research allows scientists to find ways to use stem cells to help the general public.…
