MOST RECENT

I literally take the messiest notes and they are barely literate, but I’m very proud of myself. I’m proud and amazed with how much I’ve learned from this class. Anatomy and physiology (1 & 2, lab & lecture) has made me appreciate the wonderful and fragile machines that humans are. My final, tomorrow, is on the respiratory system, reproductive systems, and the urinary system. I am taking my entrance exam for the nursing program in less than a week. I can’t believe I’ve finally made it to this point in my life; I’m actually applying to my amazingly holistic nursing program! 🎇 Here is to summer, new beginnings, and the rest of my adult life. Wish me luck 🎉🙏🏼 p.s. I turn 21 in less than a month (the 31st) and I’m freaking out lol ♊️. #tcc #tccnursing #nursing #prereqs #summer #gemini #anatomyandphysiology #bodilyfunctions #glomerulonephritis #chemoreceptors #apnea #hypoxia #arterioles #preload #hypothalamus #angiotensin #ions #granulosum

Breathing is automatic or controlled. When we are going about our life. The autonomic nervous system takes care of our breath. Vagus nerve receives information: lungs stretching. Sends it up to the brainstem who tells the guys underneath. Yo! We gotta get some air in here. Keep it fresh!! Info goes through phrenic nerve. Diaphragm contracts more air comes in. We also have a chemical back up system. If the amount of CO2 and H+ is too important in the body. Automatically we breathe in. That's a really cool safety feature. When we do some super breathing. We trick the system a little. You see, when we breathe normally our CO2 levels stay pretty constant. So when we stop breathing the amount of CO2 builds up fast. Triggering our safety system. When we do the SuperBreathing we bring our CO2 levels REALLY low. Takes time for it to build up. So we can stay really long with out breathing. Until BOOM. I need to breath. Deep breath in. Keep it for 15 seconds. O2 and CO2 levels get back to normal. That's how the super breathing helps us stay in retention for a long long time. The chemoreceptors in the medulla think all is good. Business as usual. But the rest of the body feels something ain't right. Muscles can cramp up. Ears can start hearing white noise. We can see colours eyes closed...all kinds of funny reactions happen. Cause we go deep into the autonomic nervous system. We trigger some deep reboots of the system. Our mind and body get back to baseline. Normal. Real Normal. Not the low grade stress we think is normal. Incredible how such a simple exercise. Breathing. Can trigger deep healing mechanisms within. It only takes a deep breath in and letting go. Repeat. Repeat. Repeat. Bare the fruits of your breath.

**..My Lists, The Ten #AMAZING #INSECTS in the #WORLD..** 5) #FLY/#FLIES (C.#Insecta) - Are true flies of the order #Diptera, the name was derived from the #Greek words "di" meaning "two" and "pteron" meaning "wings". The insects of this order use only single pair of wings to fly, the hindwings having evolved into advance #mechanosensory organs known as #Halteres, which act as high-speed sensors of rational movement, and allow Dipterans to perform advanced aerobatics. There are an estimated of 1,000,000 species of the order Diptera, including #Horseflies, #CraneflIes, #Hoverflies, and others, and about 150-thousand species of Dipterans have been described. The first true Dipterans know are from the Middle Triassic period at around 240-million years ago, and became widespread during the Middle and Late Triassic. The three episode of Evolutionary Radiation are thought to be occured based on the fossil records. Many new species of Diptera developed in the #Triassic about 220 mya, and many lower #Brachycera appeared in the #Jurassic at some 180 mya, and the 3rd radiation took place among the #Schizophora at the start of the #Paleogene, 66-million years ago. The Flies are important pollinators, second only to the Bees, and their relatives. They have #chemoreceptors that detect smell and taste, and #mechanoreceptors that respond to touch. The Fly is one of the fastest flying insects, such as the male #Horsefly, a World's Fastest Insect, with recorded flying speed at 90.5-MpH (145.8-KpH), and also the 5th Fastest Animal in the World. The name for a group of Flies known as "#Business".

Ecological concepts: chemoreception. This Anguis fragilis is using the chemical receptors of its tongue to explore the vicinity. #ecologicalconcept #chemoreceptors #reptile #anguis #vertebrate #herpetology #naturephotography #galiciaeunica #naturaleza_galicia

Male moths have an incredibly strong sense of smell.

Keep in mind that moths don't have noses, of course. An insect's sense of smell is essentially its ability to detect chemical cues in the environment, called chemoreception. Moths "smell" these cues with highly sensitive receptors on their antennae. And male moths are the champions of chemoreception, thanks to feathery antennae with lots of surface area to grab those molecules from the air and give them a sniff. Female moths use sex attractant pheromones to invite potential mates to mingle. Silk moth males seem to have the strongest sense of smell of all, and can follow a whiff of female pheromones for miles. A male promethea moth holds the record for tracking a scent through the air. He flew an astounding 23 miles in the hope of mating with the girl of his dreams, and was likely disappointed when he realized he'd been tricked by a scientist with a pheromone trap.

Darn those scientist!

These beauties are no small miracle. One day I plan to shake a hand... Or 8. Did you know that with their suckers on your skin, they can taste what's in your bloodstream? #octopus #lovethem #sobeautiful #chemoreceptors

We have many ways to perceive our inner and outer world,providing our body and brain with information to allow it to adapt,survive and thrive.
🔘
BARORECEPTORS are stretch sensitive, they detect tension in the walls of vascular structures, the CNS responds to balance blood pressure.
CHEMORECEPTORS Respond to chemical stimuli.
Respond to levels of oxygen and carbon dioxide to activate breath and are sensitive to any dangerous chemicals ingested to activate brain to trigger vomiting reflex.

Getting ready to teach a course on receptors & Applied Kinesiology in Reykjavik. The nervous system is always trying to reorganize itself. #Receptors are the brain's way of communicating and adapting to the outside world. The result can be seen as change in muscle function and structural realignment. #Mechanoreceptors #Chemoreceptors #Mentalreceptors #Thermoreceptors #Nociceptors #Electromagneticreceptors #SensoryInput #MotorOutput #Efferent #Afferent #NerveFlow #NerveSupply

Sea Slug Sunday. #nudibranchs #macro #rhinophores
The sensory organs on the front of most nudibranchs are called rhinophores. They have some amazing detail when you look closely. This is a pair of Imperial Nudibranchs, which are commonly seen following each other.

Found this awesome predatory sea slug (Navanax inermis) while tide pooling today!

These mollusks are voracious predators, most commonly feeding on snails, nudibranchs and other sea slugs by using chemoreceptors to track the slime trails of their prey.

#FlyEyes. This is the head of #AedesVexans, aka the #InlandFloodwaterMosquito, magnified 60 times under the dissecting #microscope. It is a common mammal-biting species in the central and eastern U.S. Mosquito vision is not too great, but their #palpi and #antennae have special #chemoreceptors that detect carbon dioxide from long distances. #mosquito #mosquitocontrol #VectorControl #bug #insect #entomology #arthropod #arthropodsanonymous #diptera #culicidae #aedes #aviators #compoundeye #facets
