  • Critique of Harrison, Evans, Johnston, and Loughnans' 'Bedside Assessment of Heel Lance Pain in the Hospitalized Infant'

    A 9 page overview of the procedures and findings in this study designed to provide a quantitative analysis of pain in neonates when undergoing a heel lance procedure. This study is unique in that it evaluates the feasibility of assessing pain among a particular difficult population, newborn infants who can not verbally communicate their pain or allow the researcher any means of utilizing patient self-assessment of pain as can occur in older patients. While some behavioral and physiological manifestations such as facial expression and heart rate were determined to be reliable indicators of pain others such as body movement were found unreliable. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • No Aging in India by Lawrence Cohen

    A 15 page analysis of Lawrence Cohen's book No Aging in India. Cohen's approach is essentially that of a medical anthropologist as he explores how cultures comprehend the body and its behavior in time. No additional sources cited.

  • The Breakfast Club/A View of Adolescence

    A 5 page research paper/essay that discusses The Breakfast Club, directed by John Hughes for Universal, which is an insightful film that offers more substance and analysis of adolescence than the typical Hollywood teen movie. This film rises above the banality of the teen movie genre by exploring in more depth the psychological ramifications of the various high school stereotypical characters, i.e., a “brain, an athlete, a basket case, a princess and a criminal” (Hughes, 2007). Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Gender, Brain Structure, and Sexual Dimorphism

    A 10 page discussion of the differences which exist between males and females in terms of brain structure. There is no contesting the fact that there are structural differences between male and female brains. These differences are found in numerous species of vertebrates and, in fact, in human beings themselves. Just what these differences mean, however, is a subject of considerable debate. While brain size in particular seems to be linked to greater intelligence for many species, no definitive proof exists that human males are any more intelligent than human females. The manner in which males and females process information, however, does differ significantly. Bibliography lists 10 sources.

  • Neuroanatomy and Learning

  • Streptococcus mutans and Acid Tolerance

    A 14 page discussion of the physiological mechanism employed by this species of oral bacteria which allow it to exist in the rapidly fluctuating pH levels of the human mouth. The author details how the cellular membrane of the organism is critical in this process, selectively allowing protons to pass out of the cell and preventing them from passing into the cell. This ability allows S. mutans a selective advantage. Acidogenicity (the ability to generate acid) and acidurance (the ability to function in an acidic environment) are the primary physiological traits of this organism which make it such an important factor in the production of dental caries as well. Bibliography lists 7 sources.

  • A Look at Chameleons

    A 5 page overview of the group of animals we know as chameleons. The author provides a specific phylogenetic classification of these animals from Kingdom to Species, noting the similarities in evolutionary pattern with other vertebrates and distinguishing the chameleon from other lizards on the basis of key taxonomic criteria. A discussion of the ecology of the group as a whole is presented as is a brief notation on the endangered status of one specific example of this group, Chamaeleo belalandaensis. A detailed explanation of how and why the chameleon changes color is included as well. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

  • Debating Shoeing Horses

    A 3 page paper discussing the implications of shoeing horses. The bottom line appears to be that shoes are beneficial in offering protection where it is needed and in correcting existing hoof problems, but that all horses do not need to be routinely shoed without assessing the conditions in which they live and work. Bibliography lists 6 sources.

  • A Review of Research Evaluating Green Tea Extract

    A 3 page critique of a research study conducted by researchers at the Biological Sciences Laboratories of Kao Corp., Tochigi, Japan.

The author of this paper points out some important considerations in regard to experimental design and the researcher's affiliation that make these findings less impressive. No additional sources are listed.

    12 pages in length. In what has seemed like the blink of an eye, scientific technology has advanced the human race at such breakneck speed that scientists are forever attempting to outdo each previous discovery with a bigger and better replacement. Such is the case with the fantastic discoveries for which the Hubble Space Telescope has been responsible during the twentieth century. Had it not been for the creation of such a monumental piece of scientific machinery, the world would not have acquired the mountain of information, photographs and previously unknown details that have come forth over the last decade.
