A&P 1: The Spring '05 Anatomy & Physiology Club - page 20

Ok, no one has started this yet, so I guess I will. I start A&P I on January 18th, lab and lecture. Here are a few good websites I have found...some are basic, some may be more indepth than your... Read More

    I had 2 questions for you all.
    How on Earth did you memorize all the landmarks for the appendicular bones? We did that in lab today, and I admit, I haven't read the chapter, but that just totally confused me. Any tips?

    Also, how does your lab test look like? Do you have to find the cells yourself or do you have samples already prepared for you? That is how we are going to do it. He prepares it all for us and we have to recognize them all. I am still trying to figure out hyaline and loose, those two just mess me up

    Thanks!

    I have a ?? maybe someone can answer. I am going over my Histology Unit review...we have to fill them out and turn them back in and one of the questions says " name the type of cells in these tissues" then there are 10 or more tissues listed. Well one of them is simple squamous epithelium....aren't the cells in SSE just squamous epithelial cells? ( as opposed to say, macrophages, osteocytes,etc etc). I got all the other ones but this one threw me...I don't know if it's a trick question or I am right.
    Sounds correct to me!

    Learning the landmarks of the bones is pretty much just memorization, and constant studying!

    I also search for different quizzes, photos, etc online that way I see more, read more, and learn more!

    So, the more different pictures you see of each tissue, the more you will be able to recognize what you are looking at. Did you draw what you saw in lab? That helps me as well.

    Good luck.

    I have a question for all of you...

    My Lab insructor told us the other day that we are the only community/junior college in the country that uses human cadavers for dissection. Do you think that's true? What do you all dissect? I'm assgned to do the muscles of the anterior shoulder/upper arm on a woman. I start my dissection on Monday. Wish me luck, I have no idea what I'm doing!

    Our CC does not use cadavers. It hink it depends upon the funding of the CC.

    That is great!

    My cc uses them in the clasess that the premed students take. For A&P though we use cats.

    We use cats at our CC as well.

    I'm not sure if it's the only one, but if not, probably one of very few. You are very lucky!!!

    I know the results of my first two quizzes: 100%.

    First big test is on next Saturday.

    I tried to figure out what school you are going to, but couldn't.
    West Valley College in Saratoga, CA uses cadavers, and, in fact, has an advanced human anatomy class in the summer (have to take their anatomy class).

    I've heard that San Jose City College uses cadavers, but do not know that for a fact.

    I was told by past students that we would use cats for dissection, but recently found out that we wont be. The only items we will be dissecting in A&P 1 and 2 are a sheep brain, cow eye and heart, and a kidney from one of those two. Thats it! I am a little disappointed because I had psyched myself up for it, but relieved at the same time. I could handle a cadaver a lot better than I could have handled a cat. I am a softy for animals I guess. My rationale is that the cadaver was once a human who consciously gave his body to science at the time of death and the cat didnt have a choice. In fact my bio professor told us they were raised on farms just for this purpose YIKES!

    Just thought I would let you all know that I took my first lecture exam in A&P 1 last tuesday. We got our results back the same day. I did better than I had thought, in fact I couldnt have done any better . My next test is March 1st on the integumentary and skeletal systems. I am already studying for that test LOL.

    I take the NET test on Wednesday and I am so nervous. I bought the study guide and took the practice test in the back of the book. I got three wrong out of 80 so I think I should be ok. I am going to continue to study though till that night before the test lol. I am so scared because everything is riding on this test. Has anyone took the NET and used the ERI NET study guide? I was just wondering how close the questions were to the actual test. I had heard that they are relatively close and if you can pass the practice test, you can pass the NET. Anyone know how true that is?

    TIA!

    Again, this is complete memorization. Here's a general thing.

    There are two types of bone development.
    1) membrane (Intramembraneous)
    - Flat bones use this to develop
    - Membrane is made up Dense Irregular C.T.
    - Mesnchyme becomes osteoprogenators that
    become osteoblasts
    - Bones start to build
    - Spicules form
    - Osteoblasts become Osteocytes
    - Starts to join each other to form lattice network to
    form Trabachulae

    2) cartilage (Endochondrial)
    - Inside cartilage
    - Hyaline cartilage model
    - Avascular, but blood vessels are surrounding in a
    membrane
    - Cells in center swell up & die because of lack of
    blood vessels
    - Forms holes
    - Blood vessels enter holes
    - Cells become Osteocytes
    - Cartilage goes away

    --After birth, the length of a long bone occurs at the
    --epiphyseal plate, until fully grown. Then it becomes
    --the epipyseal line. It is controlled by hormones.
    --(Sex & Growth hormones)


    **Osteoblasts are bone building cells.
    **(Mesnchyme becomes osteoprogenators that
    become osteoblasts)

    **Osteoclasts are bone destroying cells.
    **(mesenchyme becomes osteoclasts).

    ##Growth in length is Interstitial Growth.
    ##Growth in diameter is Appostional Growth.
    ##Changes in inside of bone is Remodeling Growth.

    ++PTH takes calcium from bones and puts it into blood.
    activates osteoclasts

    ++Calcitonin takes calcium from blood and puts it in bones.
    activates osteoblasts





    Hope this simplifies it some for you. Do you have a specific question? That maybe easier. Good luck to you.
