Happy hump day 🐪
Sat through a tough three hours of cardiopulmonary physiology and definitely need to buckle down this weekend to get comfortable with all the new material. Still loving physiology and learning ECGs is so cool!! How is your hump day?
Heart muscle cells (cardiomyocytes) can undergo physiologic and pathologic remodeling when faced with differing hemodynamic loads and neurohormonal environments. Note the thickened myocardial wall in concentric hypertrophy versus relative thinning (or preservation) in eccentric hypertrophy. How is wall stress, an important consideration in oxygen consumption, affected by these modes of remodeling?

Salah satu saat menyenangkan yang ditunggu-tunggu waktu berbaring di rumah sakit, adalah menyambut orang2 yang datang menjenguk untuk memberikan semangat agar cepat sembuh.
Thank you for all my friends and relatives who have visited and encouraged me when I was sick ,, .
Happy Friday! #Science 🥂
Repost from @drandygalpin ・・・ Uber happy our newest paper was just accepted for pub in MSSE. This took almost 5 years to pull off.
This study was important for 4 reasons.
1. It's one of the 1st studies to combine performance, biomechanics/movement analysis, & muscle physiology. *
2. We found a significant difference in fiber type % between the dominant and non-dominant leg.
3. Dom leg was stronger, faster, but had MORE SLOW-TWITCH FIBERS. *
4. We highlight the utter importance of honesty in science. Although the group averages indicated the results presented in #3 (above), we actually didn't find any individual subjects with that actually occurring. ...i.e despite the group means reaching statistical significance, nobody actually had a dominant leg that was stronger, faster, and had more slow twitch. We hope this helps people understand how "science" can be very, very deceiving.
Big thanks to the team @cspfullerton @joseadanarevalo @drsklynn @drjimmybagley @musclephyslab
A gente tenta o jejum intermitente, mas como negar a gentileza do povo oriximinaense? 😜 Obrigado @deneyleite por você e sua família lembrarem de mim. Esses pequenos gestos fazem minha passagem por aqui ser ainda mais especial. ☺️
💡LEFT + RIGHT BRAIN💡: The brain is separated into 2 distinct hemispheres: LEFT➕RIGHT
Generally speaking, the LEFT ⬅️ brain is logical 📖 and the RIGHT ➡️ brain is creative 🖍.
However, this is an oversimplification as the LEFT ⬅️ brain can demonstrate creativity 🖌too, just like the RIGHT ➡️ brain can be logical 🔢 too.
The RIGHT ➡️ side of the brain controls movement on the left ⬅️ side of the body 🚶🏻and the LEFT ⬅️ side of the brain controls 🕹movement on the right ➡️ side of the body 🚶🏼♀️.
Therefore, when a person has a stroke 💆♂️ as a result of a haemorrhage or lack of blood 💉 supply to the LEFT ⬅️ side of the brain, their right ➡️ side of their body is generally paralysed due to the LEFT ⬅️ brain controlling 🕹the right ➡️ side of the body 🚶🏻.
Similarly, if a stroke occurs due to the RIGHT ➡️ brain being affected by a haemorrhage or lack of blood 💉, a person will generally experience their left side ⬅️ of their body 🚶🏻to be paralysed.
@Regranned from @medspiration - HOW DIET & EXERCISE AFFECT THE BRAIN
Take a close look at these two brains, notice a difference? We are comparing a healthy specimen to the brain of a patient that suffered from Alzheimer’s disease (AD). In AD, there is an overall shrinkage in brain tissue - notice the grooves in the brain (the sulci) are widened & there is shrinkage in the folds of the brain’s outer layer (the gyri). Diminished organ size from a reduction in cell size or number is called atrophy. This process (atrophy) can also occur in skeletal muscles following a prolonged period of immobility (commonly seen in bed-bound patients or patients who have worn a cast for several weeks to months). Since physical exercise subsequently increases tissue mass, cell size & mitochondria - it comes to no surprise that recent research has shown that working out might prevent or delay the loss of cognitive function with aging & neurodegenerative disease. Exercise increases heart-rate, pumping more oxygen to the brain. This phenomenon may help to explain why physical activity improves learning & memory functions in humans & animals. These effects on the brain can be enhanced by concurrent consumption of natural products such as omega fatty acids & vegetables. The synergy between diet & exercise is believed to involve common cellular pathways important for neurogenesis, cell survival, synaptic plasticity & vascular function! This means that optimal maintenance of brain health may depend on our exercise & dietary habits!
