Preferences of Bangladeshi Anatomists on the use of Different Styles of Presenting Embryology Illustrations in Powerpoint Slides.

ABSTRACTBackground: Embryology is a visual subject that relies heavily on illustrations in understanding the subject, as most of the structures are not seen by naked eyes. Embryology lectures have mostly delivered using PowerPoint slides to show the microscopic structures involved during various stages of development. However, the styles of projecting the illustrations on PowerPoint slides differs greatly among the teachers. This different style of presentation is the deciding ...

Effectiveness of Different Ways of Presenting Neuroanatomy Illustration in Powerpoint Slides on Nursing Student’s Short-term Learning Memory

ABSTRACTIntroduction: Neuroanatomy is considered as difficult subject as it consists mostly of complicated microscopic structures. However, understanding of the subject structure is very important for nursing students to know its functions and dysfunctions for enhancing nursing practices. To date, teaching neuroanatomy relies heavily on illustrations and the most common way is by using PowerPoint slides, but teachers are often faced with dilemma on how to use illustrations effe...

Morphological And Histochemical Studies On The Stomach With Special Emphasis On The Glandular Sacs Of The Camel (Camelus Dromedarius)

Abstract Camel glandular sac areas were previously considered as water stores. Recently these sacs are found to be glandular areas which probably perform absorption, fermentation and secretion functions. This investigation which was conducted on thirty five adult camels and ten camel fetuses which were collected from Tamboul slaughterhouse during the period 2|2013 – 2|2014, aimed to study the morphology (gross anatomy, histology, ultrastructure, histometry) and histochemistry of came...

Head and Neck Anatomy

The head and neck are two examples of the perfect anatomical marriage between form and function, mixed with a dash of complexity. The neck is resilient enough to sustain a five kilogram weight 24/7, yet sufficiently mobile to move it in several directions. On the other end, the head is durable enough to protect the fragile brain but intricately designed to facilitate the passage of the complex neurovascular network. In this topic page, we’ll learn about various anatomical aspects of the hea...

Studies On Morphological And Histochemical Seasonal Changes On The Lacrimal Apparatus Of The One-Humped Camel (Camelusdromedarius)

INTRODUCTION The scientific classification of the animal species in this issue (Camelus dromedarius) Wilson, (1984) is as follows: Class : Mammalia. SubClass : Eutheria. Superorder : Paraxonia. Order :Artiodactyla. Suborder: Tylopoda. Family: Camelidae. Subfamily: Camelinae Genus : Camelus. Species : Dromedarius. : Bactrianus. There are two species of camels: the one-humped (Camelus dromedarius), and the two-humped camel (Camelus bactrianus) (Al-Ramadan and Ali, 2012). The one...

Histomorphological Studies Of The Effects Of Amodiaquine On The Ovary In Sprague Dawley Rats

ABSTRACT The prevalence of female infertility ranges from 7 to 28% depending on the age of the woman. Although the origin and frequency of infertility vary about 40 to 50% of the aetiology of infertility cases is as a result of female factors. Malaria and the treatment of malaria have being a major challenge for decades. A number of antimalarial drugs have been reported to have anti-fertility actions. Amodiaquine (AQ) is an anti-malarial drug and belongs to a class of drugs known as th...

Histomophological And Biochemical Studies On Alloxan-Induce Diabetic Rabbits Treated With Sphenocentrum Jollyanum Menispermceae (Pierre)

ABSTRACTThe aim was to investigate the effect of Sphenocentrum jollyanum (SJ) extract on alloxan-induced diabetic and hyperglycaemic rabbits. The prophylactic effect and the hypoglycaemic activity of SJ extracts were equally evaluated. Other biochemical parameters evaluated included lipid profile. The acute and chronic toxicity tests were also conducted to ascertain the plant's toxicity level. In diabetic study, alloxan diabetic rabbits were treated with graded doses of SJ at 50,...

Fertility Enhancing Potential Of Aqueous Stem Extractof Cissus Populnea On The Cryptorchid Testes In Sprague-Dawley Rats

ABSTRACT Cryptorchidism is the commonest congential cause of male infertility. Male infertility is on the increase in Nigeria and current available modalities of treatment are not easily accessible but also expensive. The fertility enhancing potential of aqueous extract of the stem of Cissus populnea on the cryptorchid testes and the morphological detailing was the overall objective of this research work. One hundred and eighty male Sprague-Dawley rats were divided into twelve groups...

Responsiveness to HIV Education and VCT Services among Kenyan Rural Women: A Community-Based Survey.

AbstractUptake of VCT and other HIV prevention strategies among rural African women is affected by various socio-cultural and economic factors which need elucidation. Our aim was to establish the responsiveness to HIV education among rural women attending three dispensaries in Kenya. This study was designed to assess gender and psycho-social factors that influence HIV dynamics in rural Kenya. This was a cross-sectional questionnaire based study of 1347 women, conducted in October 2009. Socio-...

Contraceptive Effect Of Methanolic Seed Extract Of Momordica Charantia On Male Sprague-Dawley Rats

ABSTRACTThe research work investigated the possible antifertility effect of the methanolic seed extract of Momordica charantia (Mc). The morphological changes following administration of the extract on testes of Sprague-Dawley rats (SD-rats) were assessed using stereological parameters, hormonal assay and measurement of testicular 'stress indicators Methodology: 670 adult male SD rats weighing 162452 g were used for the study, which was carried out in two phases of 40 weeks. There...

Contraceptive And Morphometric Effects Of The Aqueous Extract Of Carica Papaya Bark On Male Sprague Dawley Rats

ABSTRACTThe overall aim of this research is to examine if the bark extract of Carica papaya would serve as a male contraceptive agent by determining the morphological response of the testes of Sprague-Dawley rats using histological and stereological parameters.Methodology: 60 adult (6-8 weeks old ) male Sprague-Dawley rats were used for this experiment which was conducted in 3 (three ) groups of 4 weeks, 8 weeks and the reversal group. In each group, rats were subdivided into another gr...

Cadiovasular Responses In Patients With Cervical Spondylosis During Traction And Management Of Cervical Spondylotic Pain

ABSTRACT BACKGROUND & OBJECTIVES: Results from past studies have provided evidence that cervical traction is of benefit in the treatment of neck pain, but there is no consensus among clinicians regarding the amount of traction weight to be employed during treatment that will reduce the side effects (vertigo, nausea, mild headache, blurred vision and migraine) associated with this modality, if not property administered. The study was designed to investigate the cardiovascular response...

The Effect Of Kigelia Africana Fruit Extract On Cisplatin-Induced Testicular Damage In Sprague-Dawley Rats

ABSTRACT This experiment is designed to investigate the effects of Kigelia africana fruit extract (KAFE) on cisplatin-induced testicular damage in Sprague-Dawley rats. 280 male Sprague-Dawley rats weighing 200 + 20 g were used for the experiments which were run in replicates of 140 rats per set for the purpose of reproducibility of results. The experiments were categorised into short term (28 days) and long term durations (56 days). Mature and ripe fruit of Kigelia africana were obta...

The Status of Women in Idealism A Postmodernist Phenomenologico ontological Analysis

ABSTRACTThis study is centered on the idealism of George Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel (1770 - 1831). It isanchored on a tripod of theme, problem and methodology. The theme of this study is Hegel‟sidealism. The problem is the status of women in Hegel‟s idealism, and the methodology ispostmodernist phenomenological ontology. This tripod of theme, problem and methodology isfurther premised on the theoretical framework of Inter-subjectivity which offers us theopportunity to explore the polarity in...
