Chemistry for the Biosciences: The Essential Concepts

Chemistry pervades our lives, giving form and personality to the realm round us. It molds our weather, fuels our delivery, and offers nutrients its flavor and odor. Chemistry powers lifestyles itself. Chemistry for the Biosciences leads scholars during the chemical options which are necessary to knowing organic structures, utilizing daily examples and analogies to construct their self assurance in gaining knowledge of a frequently daunting topic.

Areas of overlap are the anterior limbic cortex, preoptic region, dorsal hypothalamus, midline thalamus, inferior thalamic penduncle, central amygdaloid nucleus, periventricular and periaqueductal gray, and the lateral midbrain tegmentum. Whether all of these structures form a functionally coherent system in which some vocalization areas are dependent upon the intactness of others cannot be decided from the anatomical data alone. The question is further complicated by the fact that some vocalization areas receive their afferents from the cingulate gyrus via different routes simultaneously.

Conclusions The neural control of vocalization in nonhuman primates seems to be organized in a hierarchical manner. The lowest level is represented by the cranial nerve nuclei involved in phonation, the respiratory motoneurons, and the interneurons connecting these areas with each other. This level, therefore, consists of a fairly diffuse system reaching from the pons down into the lumbar spinal cord. It includes the trigeminal motor nucleus for opening the mouth, the facial, rostral ambiguus, and hypoglossal nuclei for articulatory movements of the lips, soft palate, and tongue, the caudal nucleus ambiguus for vocal fold movements, the nucleus solitarius and the nucleus retroambigualis/respiratory anterior horn cells for afferent and efferent respiratory control, and the lateral pontine and medullary reticular formation for integration of the activity of all of these structures.
