This set of animated lessons provides examples of how transport proteins interact in coupled systems to produce physiologic effects. The gastric pumps animation depicts the secretion of hydrochloric acid into the gastric lumen. The animation called glucose absorption depicts glucose absorption by intestinal epithelial cells. The CFTR animation explains how the cystic fi brosis conductance transmembrane regulator (CFTR) functions as a key component of a coupled system of transport proteins that clears the pulmonary system of mucus and inhaled particulates. These animations serve as valuable resources for any collegiate-level course that describes these processes. Courses that might use them include introductory biology, biochemistry, biophysics, cell biology, pharmacology, and physiology.

This Teaching Resource provides three animated lessons that describe the storage and utilization of energy across plasma membranes. The "Na,K ATPase" animation explains how these pumps establish the electrochemical gradient that stores energy across plasma membranes. The "ATP synthesizing complexes" animation shows how these complexes transfer energy from the inner mitochondrial membrane to adenosine triphosphate (ATP). The "action potential" lesson explains how charged membranes are used to propagate signals along the axons of neurons. These animations serve as valuable resources for any collegiatelevel course that describes these important factors. Courses that might employ them include introductory biology, biochemistry, biophysics, cell biology, pharmacology, and physiology.

These animations depict generalities of intercellular transport. The animation called "permeability and transport" demonstrates the permeability of four classes of molecules. The "gap junctions" animation shows how these intercellular complexes exclude large factors while they allow small factors to diffuse between cells. These animations serve as useful resources for any collegiate-level course that describes these processes. Courses that might use them include biochemistry, biophysics, cell biology, introductory biology, and physiology.

Three approaches to study have been described in phenomenographic educational research: deep, strategic, and surface. Deep approaches to learning have been correlated with meaningful learning and academic success, whereas surface approaches produce an externalization of learning and poor outcomes. Students adopting a strategic approach adopt either a deep or surface approach in response to perceived examination demands. Despite being well known in Europe and Australia, this research paradigm has been applied sporadically in the United States. In this study, the approaches to study of a group of first year American medical students were collected using the Approaches and Study Skills Inventory for Students instrument at the beginning and end of their first year to find how consistent these approaches remained over time. At both times, the majority of participants adopted deep approaches, followed by strategic and then surface approaches. The percentage of participants using a surface approach grew during the first year but never exceeded 10%. The mean anatomy grades of students adopting each approach were then compared to find how each approach correlated with success in the course. Mean grades of students using a strategic approach were significantly higher than average at both times. Students who maintained a strategic approach throughout the first year had significantly higher mean grades than average while students who changed to a surface approach had significantly worse mean anatomy grades. Problem-based students had significantly higher scores on several deep submeasures than lecture-based peers and female students demonstrated greater fear of failure than male peers at both times. © 2010 Wiley-Liss, Inc.

Dr. Jeffrey Hunt of Vein & Cosmetic Center of Tampa Bay explains the benefits of innovative NovaThreads for achieving youthful lift in areas of the face and neck TAMPA BAY, FL--(Marketwired - Nov 23, 2016) - The recent FDA-approval of NovaThreads® has introduced both doctors and patients to an effective new option for non-surgical facial rejuvenation, explains Tampa cosmetic specialist Jeffrey A. Hunt, DO. As a physician offering a wide range of both non-invasive and minimally invasive cosmetic treatments at his practice, Dr. Hunt believes that NovaThreads® stands out as a worthwhile choice for many men and women who are looking to reduce the appearance of skin laxity. He says NovaThreads® is unique in that it can provide a customizable, physical lift to drooping skin along the neck and in several areas of the face. With NovaThreads®, Dr. Hunt is able to control the placement, direction, and tension of the lift to deliver optimal results typically lasting between 18 and 24 months. Common cosmetic improvements he is able to achieve with NovaThreads® include: One of the greatest benefits of NovaThreads® is that they can often be placed virtually painlessly using only topical anesthetic to numb the skin, adds Dr. Hunt. When asked to describe the procedure, he explains that different varieties of NovaThreads®, which are uniquely designed to achieve a range of cosmetic effects, are carefully inserted below the skin and looped in a "U" shape to apply a very specific degree of lift and tension to the treatment area. He goes on to illustrate that beneath the skin, NovaThreads® works to stimulates natural collagen production to hold the improvements in place as the threads are resorbed. Dr. Hunt says the versatility and natural-looking results that NovaThreads® can provide make it a popular treatment among his patients. He encourages men and women who desire some of the effects of a facelift or neck lift, but are unwilling to undergo surgery, to consider NovaThreads® as a viable alternative treatment. He recommends that those interested in NovaThreads® follow through with a consultation to determine if the procedure is right for them.
