For each of the following cranial bones:
Frontal
Parietal
Occipital
Temporal
-Name the sutures that forms their borders (i.e. the medial border of the parietal bone is the sagittal suture).
-Name the major parts of each bone (i.e. the temporal bone has two main parts: petrous and squamous).
-List the functions of each bone (i.e. the temporal bone forms the temple, ear canal, and the TMJ, anchors neck muscles, and protects vessels that circulate blood in the brain).
-Describe how each bone articulates with other bones to form joints, the orbit, the cranial floor, and the zygomatic arch

Please look over the instructions and follow accordingly:
Please read pages 15 to 64 from the book Behave by Prof. Robert Sapolsky. If you have a Kindle copy, this is from “Chapter One, The Behavior” until “The Mesolimbic/Mesocortical Dopamine System” (read only until that title).
The assignment should have three distinct sections, as follows:
Part 1: Answer the following questions using the ideas from the chapter in your own words. Answers that are a replica from the book (or very similar) will graded as zero. However, please note that technical vocabulary should be copied or used in your assignments. About 500 words for this part 1.
Explain the model proposed by Paul MacLean, defining the three layers and how these layers communicate with each other. Use the names of brain structures and other technical names.
Part 2: Develop and explain one idea, thought, relation, or connection of the material read in the assignment with other knowledge or experiences you might have. Please note that the noted connection needs to be developed and justified. You should be writing a minimum of five sentences in this paragraph to explain the relationship.
Part 3 – Annotate and describe 5 new words that you learned in this section of the book and that are related to psychobiology/neuroscience
Reading is from the book Behave: The Biology of Humans at Their Best and Worst, by Robert M. Sapolsky. Page 15 to 64 only***
***Model for part 1 is on page 22 section titled Three Metaphorical (But Not Literal) Layers***

Part I:
Review the picture attached which shows actual pictures of red blood cells exposed to a variety of osmotic solutions.
Red Blood Cells
Solution A Solution B Solution C
Answer the following questions:
1. Using the terms isotonic, hypertonic or hypotonic, identify what type of solution into which each group of red cells has been placed.
2 . For each of the solutions, identify a percent salt solution that would have caused the results that you saw picture. Hint: Most cellular fluids are composed mainly of water and salts. You will need to know the normal percent salt solution in red blood cells in order to determine the answer to this question.
3. What visual difference(s) did you observe in the changes between the three cells in each of the solutions. Pick one of those differences and research their impact on a specific example in biological systems and provide a report on the impact. When you consider “impact”, consider both positive and negative impact.
Part II:
The data in the table attached shows the results of an experiment investigating plant growth when exposed to different colors of the light spectrum.
1. What conclusions can be drawn from this data? Explain in detail and provide source citations.
2. Was a control used in this experiment? If so, what was it? If not, what would be an appropriate control for this experiment? Explain your answer.
3. Do the graphs reproduced below support the data in the table? Explain why or why not.

Purpose
One of the important outcomes from the course is that upon completion, students familiarize themselves with the usage of terminology and research associated with microbiology. Through reviewing research articles and constructing a written summary, you will gain exposure to terminology of microbiology in its application in the “real-world” setting.
Assignment
This module includes a written assignment on a topic of your own choice that reviews research and provides the student’s own summary and understanding of what that research tells us. You may select any module specific topic that is based upon any material presented in the textbook. The article that you are summarizing must be a peer-edited article (not a website, magazine, etc.). Plagiarism of any sort will not be tolerated.
Instructions
The 1-page summary should reflect independent student research on the topic chosen and include the following:
Summary must be single spaced, in 12-point, Times New Roman font.
Summary must include the following sections: objectives, methods, results, and conclusions.
Include a reference page in APA format.
Your task is to select a scholarly, peer-reviewed article, which pertains to some aspect of microbiology covered the week’s module, and write a 1 page abstract with the guidelines described in the assignment’s instructions. You must select a peer-reviewed research articles that describes a study or experiment that includes objectives, methods, results, and conclusions. This does not include webpages, review papers, newspaper articles, Wikipedia articles, etc. An example of a research article can be found attached to this announcement, please do not use this. The best way to search for a peer-reviewed research article is to use a database (e.g. PubMed, Wed of Science, etc.), or Google Scholar. You should have access to several databases of research papers through the Marian University library. Please reach out if you are still unsure or have questions about this. You’re also welcome to message me with your selection to check if it is appropriate for the Article Summary assignments.

Briefly compare/contrast your species’ life history strategy with that of humans in each of the following respects:

Choose a focal species. This can be any wild, non-domesticated animal, plant, fungus, or Protistan species (i.e., any Eukaryote). If you are using a focal species for an assignment in another class, you may use it here as well, but be sure that it is a species, not a group of species.
Identify your focal species:
1. Scientific name (Genus species):
2. Common Name (if any):
3. Family:
4. Order:
5. Class:
6. Phylum/Division:
7. Kingdom
21-25. Does your species reproduce sexually or asexually?
26-30. If sexual, does your species have separate sexes (each individual acts as a male or a female at a given
stage in its life = dioecious) or is it hermaphroditic (each individual can act as both male and female monoecious):
31-35. If dioecious, do males and females of your species differ in any visible ways apart from their gonads and
gametes? Briefly describe up to three sexually dimorphic traits, or state that there are none if there are none.
Briefly compare/contrast your species’ life history strategy with that of humans in each of the following respects:
36-40. Age at first reproduction
41-45. Number of reproductive efforts per lifetime
46-50. Number of offspring per effort
51-55. Lifespan
56-100. Briefly describe how you would design a study that would use your focal species to investigate your
evolutionary question. Note: if your question was originally framed with respect to a particular species, and you
used a different focal species above, simply apply the gist of your question to your focal species, as best you can. Your answer should be concise but with specific details: would it be done in the lab or in the field? What variables would you measure? What sort of sample sizes would you try to get? How would different kinds of results (data)
influence how you might answer your question?
Please type your name at the end of these sentences: This is my
own work and I did not discuss the questions or my answers with anybody else:

Is medical paternalism always wrong?

PHI 312 A WIP INT
5-6 pages (double-spaced, size 12 font, one-inch margins)
Please answer the following essay question:
In recent years, ethicists have argued against most forms of medical paternalism. They have claimed that it is wrong for physicians to make decisions for their patients, or to impose their own values upon their patients. In this view, when physicians act paternalistically, they fail to show adequate respect for their patients’ autonomy. Do you agree? Is medical paternalism always wrong? Is it ever morally permissible for physicians to act paternalistically towards their patients? Explain and defend your answer. Be sure to consider at least one of the following articles in your answer: “Whose Body Is It Anyway?” by Atul Gawande (Canvas); “The Refutation of Medical Paternalism,” by Alan Goldman; “Autonomy, Futility, and the Limits of Medicine,” by Robert L. Schwartz; “Why Doctors Should Intervene,” by Terrence Ackerman

Throughout the semester, you will be evaluating your diet for both calorie and nutrient intake to assess your overall nutrition. In the first assignment, you will use the Dietary Log to track your diet for three (3) days. Click this link to open the assignment: “Dietary Log” This food journal will be used for the remaining Dietary Analysis Project assignments throughout the semester, so be sure to save a copy of the file that you can add to for each part of the project. The analysis is based on your average intake, so choose three unique days to record throughout the week. There may be duplicate items, but none of the days should be nearly identical. If you have any questions about what is acceptable for the project, do not hesitate to contact me before you complete the assignment. Detailed instructions are included in the document.
Food portions are one of the most commonly underestimated errors in the food log. Use this quick reference to estimate your actual portion size when recording meals in your dietary log.
For this assignment, please use this Food Composition Table (click to open link) to locate and calculate the nutrition information for your dietary log. For the best experience viewing the Food Composition Table, I suggest you use Two-Page view. This can be done by opening the Food Composition Table in Adobe Reader (not in a browser tab), selecting View from the menu at the top of the screen, clicking on Page Display from the dropdown menu, and then selecting Two-Page view. This will allow you to see the full list of nutrition information for each item on one screen.
Note: Before beginning this assignment, be sure that you have Adobe Reader (free software) installed on your computer. Your web browser may be configured with an Adobe Reader plug-in to automatically open the file within your browser’s window when accessed; however, accessing the PDF in your browser will limit your ability to search through the document.
