Summary everything from course 2, from the cradel to the grave
Literally everything is in this file, all the cases ( - 8 pages per case), all the lectures with very detailed notes and images from the lecture. Every practical is summerised and some important points from the response lectures are integrated.
in the cases:
function and structure of bones
Types of bone cells and the bone matrix
osteogenesis (bone development) (intramembranous and endochodral ossification)
growth of the bone (in diameter and length)
bones: adults vs babies
Myogenesis (development of the muscle fibers at molecular level, IGF1 and AKT signalling)
muscle growth and stem cells
post natal screening (the Heel prick, Gutheri test)
wat is puberty and the stages of puberty (tanner score)
Hormonal regulation of puberty and growth (Kisspeptin, Growth hormone, thyroid hormones and more)
regulation of growth during the growth spurt
regulation menstrual cycle
growth charts / assesing the growth of a child (growth charts, percentiles, formula\'s to calculate the length of a boy / girl)
other ways to assess growth (shortly)
neurolation, neurogenesis and gliogenesis
cell fate and cell migration
survival of nerve cells (tropic factors)
the genesis of connections between nerve cells (growth cone, target selection, adress selection, chemoaffinity hypothesis)
