Corotto, F., Ceballos, D., Lee, A., & Vinson, L. (2010). Making the Most of the Daphnia Heart Rate Lab: Optimizing the Use of Ethanol, Nicotine & Caffeine. The American Biology Teacher , 176-179. The purpose of this article was to test the effects of chemicals on Daphnia magna.
A hydrilla grows a long steam that has many leaves on it as well as tiny white flowers on them which float above the water. They are an aquatic plant which means they live in water such as clean water, including lakes, ponds, rivers, streams, and marshes. Seen mostly in the Southeast of Florida and in their habitat they form dense mats of vegetation, can grow with little light, and more efficent in taking nutrients than other species. Florida faces many problems within their water bodies and waterways. The aquatic plants pollute 96% of the public lakes and rivers.
Daphnia Magna are small crustaceans that are excellent for observing the effect of depressants on their nervous system. The purpose of this specific experiment is to observe the effect of ethanol, aspirin, and caffeine on daphnia’s heart rate. Not only do these chemicals affect heart rate, but they also affect the frequency of reproduction, number of eggs produced, and body structure. Pesticides similar to these chemicals can be released into the environment and daphnia re useful in monitoring toxicity levels. The agents being tested in this experiment can be administered to determine the effects of hormones, stimulants, antidepressants, and neurotransmitters.
Since the Cleveland Browns returned to the NFL in 1999, the dedicated fans of the Dawg Pound haven’t had much to celebrate. Years of management and roster overhauls created a tumultuous situation that resulted in mostly sub-.500 records and inconsistency that a club needs to succeed. This season saw another chaotic year in the always competitive AFC North when the struggling club must contend with the often-powerhouse Bengals, Ravens and Steelers six times a season. The year resulted in another below .500 record and the ouster of head coach Mike Pettine and general manager Ray Farmer almost immediately after the team’s loss to the Steelers on the final week. And just like that, the Browns and the Cleveland faithful were back to square one
Nonetheless, besides fish, many other kinds of poikilothermic animals, such as snakes and frogs, use lungs instead of gills to breathe, and further researches may be conducted to explore if caffeine has an effect on their metabolism. For example, forty northern leopard frogs with similar body size will be captured and divided into twenty trials, and each two frogs will be tested in the same control and experimental conditions as the goldfish metabolism experiment did. The collected slopes of oxygen concentration will then be converted into oxygen consumption rate and analyzed by the paired t-test. If the difference in the oxygen consumption rate between the control and experimental groups is statistically significant, this experiment will show that caffeine affects the metabolism of frogs, one kind of poikilotherms that use lungs to
Given its ability to treat wounds and stop bleeding, this mushroom is used as a medication for curing hemorrhoids. Other uses of this fungus include correcting certain bladder disorders, as well as dysmenorrhea. In ancient Indian medicine, this mushroom has been used as a diuretic.
daedalus was the greatest architect and sculptor of his time. Daedalus was sorely jealous of talus. One day they were standing on a height and daedalus was so jealous he pushed talus off to his death. Daedalus signed king minos labyrinth. The king was so scared daedalus was gonna reveal his secret he couldnt let daedalus leave.
Research was later done on the rubber used and the possibility of the digoxin only being coincidental. They found that newborns naturally create this substance called digoxin. This is because the infant’s heart and body need extra assistance in maintaining a consistent heart rate. When we look at Older kids and adults we do not find much of any digoxin in their bloodstreams. This is because their developed bodies do not need this booster to help keep itself steady.
E.g. 99mTc-tetrofosmin (Myoview, GE healthcare), 99mTc-sestamibi (Cardiolite, Bristol-Myers Squibb now Lantheus Medical Imaging). Following this, the heart rate is raised to induce myocardial stress, either by exercise or pharmacologically with adenosine, dobutamine or dipyridamole (aminophylline can be used to reverse the effects of
Background: Explain on the cellular level how dropping warm Ringers solution on the frog’s heart would affect the cells of the SA node. Dropping warm Ringers solution on the frog’s heart would increase the heart rate because the calcium channels open faster. Explain on the cellular level how dropping warm Ringers solution on the frog’s heart would affect the cells of the contractile muscle of the ventricles. Dropping warm Ringers solution on the frog’s heart would increase the heart rate because the actin binds to the myosin more quickly due to the calcium channels opening faster leading to faster contraction of the heart.
