Question:

When using APA format to cite a journal article with five authors, how should I list the authors in the reference page and the in-text citation?

Mackenzie S.
Answer:

In APA format, references should be listed in the same order they appeared on the title page of the article referenced, this is usually not alphabetical order but order of contribution. Their last name, first initial should be listed up to twenty authors with an ampersand before the final authors name. An example of this format would be: Au, A., Yip, H. M., Lai, S., Ngai, S., Cheng, S. T., Losada, A., Thompson, L., & Gallagher-Thompson, D. (2019). Telephone-based behavioral activation intervention for dementia family caregivers: Outcomes and mediation effect of a randomized controlled trial. Patient Education and Counseling, 102(11), 2049-2059. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.pec.2019.06.009

Question:

I don't understand the difference between mitosis and meiosis. Can you explain?

Mackenzie S.
Answer:

The primary difference between mitosis and meiosis is that meiosis is the division of sex cells. Cell division occurs once in mitosis, which results in two identical daughter cells, whereas in meiosis, cell division occurs twice, resulting in four non-identical daughter cells. Additionally, the cells created by the mitosis division will have 46 chromosomes, whereas the sex cells created during meiosis will have 23 chromosomes.

Question:

How do you orient the anatomical planes? How do they relate to anatomical direction?

Mackenzie S.
Answer:

When orienting yourself, the easiest way is to begin in anatomical position - standing up straight, facing forward, feet flat on the ground with toes facing forward. arms held slightly out to the side with palms facing forward. The anatomical planes divide the body or its structures up into two separate parts. The first plane, the coronal or frontal plane, divides the body into front (anterior) and back (posterior) portions. The second plane, the sagittal plane, divides the body into left and right parts. A sagittal plane can divide part of the structure into parts, but a midsagittal plane divides it in exact halves. The third plane, the transverse plane, divides the body into upper (superior) and lower (inferior) portions.
