What is a NSAID?
A non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID) is a class of drug designed to help with a number of ailments such as decreasing pain, reducing inflammation, and preventing blood clots. NSAIDs work by inhibiting activity of an enzyme called cyclooxyrgenase (either COX-1 or COX-2). These enzymes are typically known for their involvement in inflammation and blood clots. There are many NSAIDs available over-the-counter (does not require a prescription) and may be found at a pharmacy. Common NSAIDs are ibuprofen, naproxen, and aspirin.
What is the typical structure of a scientific paper?
A scientific paper is typically broken into five key sections: introduction, methods, results, discussion, and conclusion. In the introduction section, it is recommended that the topic of the paper begin rather broad and introduce the context of the paper. As you continue with your introduction, it is also important to narrow your focus and address any gaps that may need to be filled. The narrowing of your focus should ultimately lead to your purpose and hypothesis statements. These statements are critical as they should answer the question(s) of why you should fill the gaps. The methodology section then details of how you went about performing the experiment. The methods section is critical as it allows for other researchers to replicate the study. The results section then is a presentation of your findings. Finally, the discussion and conclusion sections indicate how your findings bridge the gaps you addressed in the introduction, as well as a direction for future research moving forward.
Which of the following muscles does not have an attachment on to the scapula? A. Biceps brachii B. Rhomboids C. Latissimus dorsi D. Serratus anterior
The correct answer to the question is "C. Latissimus dorsi." An "attachment" may refer to either the origin or insertion of a muscle. The origin and insertion are specific areas where a muscle is anchored on the human body, typically a bony landmark. While all of the listed muscles have actions at the shoulder, the latissimus dorsi insertion site is actually on the humerus (specifically the medial lip of the intertubecular groove), not the scapula. In contrast, the biceps brachii has two attachments on the scapula: the coracoid process and the supraglenoid tubercle. In addition, the rhomboids and serratus anterior both originate on the medial border of the scapula; however, the rhomboids originate on the posterior side (the back) and the serratus anterior originates on the anterior surface (the front) of the scapula.
