This is a general review including disease/disorder chart, muscle chart, i.n.n., embryo, histology diagnostic characteristics, and anatomical regions. This is comprehensive

Each enamel rod making up the enamel crown extends all the through the enamel from the enamel/dentin junction to the outer surface of the crown. Each rod is laid down by the short process (Tome's process) on the apical end of the ameloblasts as unmineralized matrix. As this new material is laid down it compresesses the process so the process does not extend very far out from the cell body. The surrounding pre-enamel (unmineralized matrix) calcifies to become the enamel rods. So there is no Tome's processes in the enamel rods per se, only a short apical cellular process (Tome's process) in the pre-enamel that disappears with the ameloblasts when the tooth errupts from the gum. Therefore,Tome's processes are only found in the forming anatomical crown where the ameloblasts still exist. - Dr.
this was from chiaia's histo review. i just put down highlights on things that he said that seemed important

These are the questions from ANATOMY DEATHMATCH 3... Surprisingly Marco won first place! I guess he is good at something.

So I'm not sure that exposure to diuretics causing vestibular dysfunction would impact my hearing. I think it would only cause balance issues because the vestibular system controls balance, not hearing. Diuretics can,however, affect hearing because they damage hair cells. So, the last response to the poll should be "Damaged hair cells caused by exposure to diuretics as a child".


This page shows you how to set up the VMware client on your own computer so you can access a UT computer lab computer remotely from home, this is useful mainly so you can access the Histology review software at home, which is normally only accessible on campus and why none of us use it. -TP

Hello Dr. Chiaia,
Quick Question:
Does somatostatin inhibit growth hormone itself or inhibit the release of growth hormone?
And is somatostatin the same as growth hormone inhibiting hormone and somatotrophin release inhibiting hormone? boom

Calculate what you need on the last exam to get the score you want in block 2. Just type in your last 6 scores out of 100% -TP

this is not exact and is a couple of percentage points off - JAY
jay! this works. quit using your michigan math - Jeff

Jayanth: hmm ipsilateral means same side

everything makes some sense now
me: where is that
Jayanth: it's for the internal jugular line the "ipsilateral nipple"means nipple on the same side
me: enlightening

The End and the Beginning

Wislawa Szymborska

After every war
someone has to clean up.
Things won't
straighten themselves up, after all.
Someone has to push the rubble
to the side of the road,
so the corpse-filled wagons
can pass.
Someone has to get mired
in scum and ashes,
sofa springs,
splintered glass,
and bloody rags.
Someone has to drag in a girder
to prop up a wall,
Someone has to glaze a window,
rehang a door.
Photogenic it's not,
and takes years.
All the cameras have left
for another war.
We'll need the bridges back,
and new railway stations.
Sleeves will go ragged
from rolling them up.
Someone, broom in hand,
still recalls the way it was.
Someone else listens
and nods with unsevered head.
But already there are those nearby
starting to mill about
who will find it dull.
From out of the bushes
sometimes someone still unearths
rusted-out arguments
and carries them to the garbage pile.
Those who knew
what was going on here
must make way for
those who know little.
And less than little.
And finally as little as nothing.
In the grass that has overgrown
causes and effects,
someone must be stretched out
blade of grass in his mouth
gazing at the clouds.
