Biology: Cloning Questions

Dolly, Dolly, and More Dolly

It all started with a sheep named Dolly. In the mid-1990s, scientists proved convincingly that after decades of trying, we could, indeed, clone mammals — and even possibly, human beings. Unsurprisingly, this discovery was one of the most controversial of the 20th century, and the issue of cloning continues to be just as contentious today.

Compare the current provisions in the ACA with those in the failed first version of the AHCA

This week’s discussion focuses on the federal government’s role in protecting the public’s health using the ACA and current efforts to “repeal and replace” the ACA. Please note that the government’s role in protecting the public’s health did not begin with the ACA. In the late 1800s, Lilian Wald brought health care to the community. And in 1965, Congress passed bills authorizing Medicare and Medicaid. Since 1965, Congress has expanded government-sponsored health care to pregnant women and children.

Answer the following question:

  • Compare the current provisions in the ACA with those in the failed first version of the AHCA. Share your opinions about why the AHCA failed in the first attempt at passage.

Abstract

 

 

 

The Mozart Effect is a phenomenon that occurs when individuals listen to the two piano sonata.  The stated results are individuals that are able to remember information easier.  There are two studies that were conducted in associated with the Mozart Effect.  The first study was dedicated to spatial skill performance and its neural pathway relation to music.  The other study was dedicated to challenging the first study due to the argument that any type of music that is appreciated can cause the same memory effect.  The second study was based on an experiment with unborn mice that heard Mozart’s piano sonata K448.  The other part of the study was related to the effects of Mozart’s piano sonata K448 on patients who were suffering from epilepsy.  The overall conclusion is that Mozart’s piano sonata K448 has positive effects on both animals and humans.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Keywords: Mozart Effect, spatial skill performance, memory, music, neurons, neural pathways, brain, rats, and epilepsy

 

 

 

The Mozart Effect

 

 

 

Research and conducting experiments is the most effective way possible to gain an answer.  The type of research is based on the situation, the hypothesis, and the resources the individual or group has on hand.  The purpose of this research paper is to examine the Mozart Effect from two different journals and answer questions based on the research materials.  The first article for examination is Music and spatial task performance.

 

 

 

Music and Spatial Task Performance

 

 

 

The Mozart Effect is essentially a study to determine if music helps individuals to accomplish tasks better.  Memory is definitely a factor in this study.  Rauscher, Shaw, Levine, and Ky (1993), hypothesized that a model of the brain and its pathways for neurons would prove that music and the ability to orient oneself with their environment can be seen using the same neural paths and they cover a large portion of the same areas in the brain.

 

 

 

A much simpler picture would be two cars driving down the same highway to get to similar locations.  The actual terminology used is spatial task performance.  A quick explanation of spatial ability is necessary to understand the important of the study.  Spatial skill deals with comprehension and memory related to spaces among objects (JHU).  This ability can be classified as an intelligence that is set apart from others such as verbal or reasoning.  It can be considered a fluid type of trait that evolves over time as people have different life experiences (JHU).

 

 

 

The significance of spatial ability is two-fold: in application and also in occupation.  In terms of application it is related to a person’s ability to perform at least two tasks at the same time.  For example: people who can eat and drive at the same time have developed this ability through spatial skill.  Just like experience work has its spatial skill requirements.  Occupations such as mathematics, natural sciences, and meteorology are included in the spatial skill classification (JUH).

 

 

 

Notice that these types of occupations often require research.  Two important components of research are the independent variable and the dependent variable.  In this study the independent variables are: Mozart’s sonata, college students, and three year olds (Rauscher, Shaw, & Ky, 1993).  The dependent variable in the study was memory (Rauscher, Shaw, & Ky, 1993).  The researchers focused on Mozart’s sonata which was a controlled variable because it was the only type of music they used.  This was necessary because the study itself was music specific i.e. Mozart’s sonata.  There were two other controlled variables college students and three year olds.

 

 

 

Controlling age ranges was important to see how memory was affected in children and adults, namely to see who remembered the most information for the longest period of time.  Rauscher, Shaw, & Ky (1993), presented data from two different studies: college students with improved short-term memory due to Mozart’s sonata, and three year olds with long-term advancements specifically in nonverbal cognitive abilities based on listening to Mozart’s sonata.

 

 

 

The evidence from this study was observable and valid.  The researchers Rauscher, Shaw, & Ky (1993) explained that infants possess the highest level of ability concerning memorization and the development of nonverbal cognitive skills.  As a person ages brain elasticity lessens and it becomes harder for a person to grasp new material specifically memory recall and implementation.  The evidence presented did justify the explanation and proved that music does travel along the same neural pathways as spatial ability.  The following is another study based on the Mozart Effect.
