In this particular movie, actor Michael Keaton plays a father who cannot handle his crazily busy lifestyle. In an effort to be the perfect father, husband and employee, he has himself cloned easily at a nearby medical center. The three clones each have their own personality: one is sarcastic and bitter, one is sweet and sensitive and one is a half-wit but all are ...

(Brunnscheiler) Inexplicably, visual problems tend to clear up in the later stages of MS. Inflammatory problems of the optic nerve may be diagnosed as retro bulbar or optic neuritis. Fifty-five percent of MS patients will have an attack of optic neuritis at some time or other and it will be the first symptom of MS in approximately 15 percent. This has led to general rec...

Spina Bifida Spinal Cord
489 wordsSpina Bifida is a Latin term meaning split spine. It is the name given to a group of birth defects, which interfere with the development of the central nervous system: the brain, the spinal cord and the nerve tissues. It results from the failure of the spine to close properly during the first month of pregnancy. In severe cases, the spinal cord protrudes through the back and may be covered by skin or a thin membrane. Surgery to close a newborn's back is generally performed within 24 hours after ...

Spinal Cord Stem Cells
581 wordsStem cell research looks to be one of the most promising treatments for spinal cord injuries. Stem cells are special because they are the primitive cells that give rise to different kinds of tissues in the body, and because they are self renewing in the body and in the laboratory so that large quantities can be produced for medical purposes (The Promise of Stem Cells, 2002). Another great quality of stem cells is that they have the potential to develop into many different cells in the body. When...

888 wordsSpinal Cord Regeneration Spinal cord injury can occur in many ways ranging from gunshot wounds, stab wounds and also bone displacement. These circumstances can lead to the death of neurons, and the demyelination of axons which causes some loss and damage to neurons. As Hudgins (1998) reports after a primary injury such as above, secondary injury occurs 30 minutes after and also that secondary injury is when the most critical damage occurs. This is when there is hemorrhaging in the gray matter of...

1,940 wordsThe Brain Covering All Parts- INTRODUCTION The human body is divided into many different parts called organs. All of the parts are controlled by an organ called the brain, which is located in the head. The brain weighs about 2. 75 pounds, and has a whitish-pink appearance. The brain is made up of many cells, and is the control centre of the body. The brain flashes messages out to all the other parts of the body. The messages travel in very fine threads called nerves. The nerves and the brain mak...

The NTD occurs when the vertebrae and / or spinal cord of the fetus fail to develop properly, and results in varying degrees of damage to the spinal cord and nervous system. The damage is permanent. SB is usually accompanied by hydrocephalus. Treatment is urgent to minimize further neurological damage in the opening in the spine. The three most common types of SB are: Myelomeni...
