body processes


abduction

abduction

Abduction is the opposite of adduction and means the lateral contraction of limbs or hand and foot members. The executing muscles are called abductors, and depending on the body location, several abductors may be involved in a single abduction. Abdominal discomfort may be muscular or neuronal. What is the abduction

abdominal breathing

abdominal breathing

In abdominal breathing, also known as abdominal breathing, respiration is largely determined by a contraction of the diaphragm. The abdominal breathing ventilates a larger part of the lung than the chest breathing. What is abdominal breathing? In abdominal breathing, also known as abdominal breathing, respiration is largely determined by a contraction of the diaphragm

rolling

rolling

The rolling motion of the foot is a functionally very important process when walking and running slowly. Disruptions can have negative effects on the entire body. What is the rolling motion? The rolling motion of the foot is a functionally very important process when walking and running slowly. The rolling of the foot refers to the movement of the foot, taking into account the changing contact surfaces of the sole of the foot during the leg phase

absolute power

absolute power

The absolute force results from the maximum force and the autonomously protected power reserves of the body. Thus, the absolute force corresponds to the force that a body theoretically can muster up to a maximum resistance. Diseases with impaired maximal strength also affect the absolute power. What is the absolute force

absorption

absorption

Absorption in medicine is the uptake of a substance by the metabolism. An externally supplied drug is rarely fully absorbed. The absorption happens depending on the dosage form to different degrees. What is the absorption? Absorption in medicine is the uptake of a substance by the metabolism. Absorption usually occurs at the cellular level

weaning

weaning

Weaning means switching from breast milk to solid food. It is gradual, so that first a combination of breast milk and complementary foods is fed. Only when the baby gets all the nutrients from the alternative food source, it is considered as wilted. What is the weaning? Weaning is the process of converting an infant from breast milk to external food sources

defensive

defensive

The defense reaction is also called immune response and corresponds to the body's own processes for the elimination of alien substances. When the organism recognizes a foreign substance as threatening, it extinguishes it with the help of plasma proteins and killer cells. In autoimmune diseases, the defense reaction is not directed against pathogens, but falsely against the body's own tissue

Achilles tendon reflex

Achilles tendon reflex

The Achilles' reflex or triceps surea reflex is a reflex. He belongs to the group of so-called self-reflexes and describes the reaction of the body in one fell swoop on the Achilles tendon. After this stroke, a stimulus is transmitted to the body, causing the ankle to be stretched. What is the Achilles' reflex

attentiveness

attentiveness

The concept of mindfulness is versatile and until today there is no universal definition. Nevertheless, the ideas are usually in the same range. Concentration, caution and attention are terms that come very close to the domain of mindfulness. What is mindfulness In meditation, mindfulness can help you better understand your own body and mind

adduction

adduction

With adduction, movements of a body part are referred to, which are directed to the body center (spreading). Adduction exists on 4 joints of the human body: in the hip joint, in the shoulder joint, in the finger base joints and in the thumb saddle joint. What is adduction? Basically, adduction describes the movement of body parts to the body

adductor reflex

adductor reflex

The adductor reflex is a self-reflex of the muscles known as adductors and muscle groups in the thighs and arms. The absence of the reflex indicates damage in the corresponding brain area. What is the adductor reflex? The adductor reflex is a self-reflex of the muscles known as adductors and muscle groups in the thighs and arms

adolescence

adolescence

Adolescence is the period of life from late childhood to adulthood. It begins around the onset of puberty and ends when the person is physically, mentally and socially mature. What is adolescence? Adolescence is the period of life from late childhood to adulthood. Adolescence is often understood as a synonym for the time of puberty, but actually includes parts before and after

aggression

aggression

The word aggression is often used judgmentally in everyday life. In contrast, psychological definitions provide a purely descriptive fact. Aggressive behavior is not primarily a disease. Note: This article focuses on "aggression" as a natural body process in humans, for example, as a defense and defense response in a dangerous situation

accommodation

accommodation

Accommodation is the ability of the eye to dynamically adjust the refraction of light and for this reason to clearly and sharply recognize objects from any distance. What is the accommodation? Accommodation is the ability of the eye to dynamically adjust the refraction of light and for this reason to clearly and sharply recognize objects from any distance

action potential

action potential

Action potential is a short-term change in the membrane potential. Action potentials typically arise at the axon mound of a nerve cell and are the prerequisite for stimulus transmission. What is the action potential? Action potentials typically arise at the axon mound of a nerve cell and are the prerequisite for stimulus transmission

What is the action potential? Action potentials typically arise at the axon mound of a nerve cell and are the prerequisite for stimulus transmission

Active substance transport

Active substance transport

Active mass transport is a transport form of substrates through a biomembrane. Active transport takes place against a concentration or charge gradient and takes place under energy consumption. In mitochondriopathies this process is disturbed. What is the active substance transport? Active mass transport is a transport form of substrates through a biomembrane

acceleration

acceleration

Acceleration corresponds to a somatic or psychological developmental acceleration. In addition to individual accelerations, secular accelerations occur, in which an entire generation is subject to accelerated development due to environmental influences. Physical aggravations are primarily associated with postural damage

alkylation

alkylation

Alkylation characterizes the transfer of an alkyl group from one molecule to another. Alkylations are mutagenic and carcinogenic because DNA and RNA are often attacked and altered by alkylating agents. The so-called alkylating agents are used in medicine on the one hand to inhibit cell growth as cytostatic drugs and on the other hand cause cancer or lead to hereditary damage in the offspring

Allosteric inhibition (non-competitive inhibition)

Allosteric inhibition (non-competitive inhibition)

In allosteric inhibition or non-competitive inhibition, inhibitors bind to the allosteric center of an enzyme and thus reduce its activity. The binding results in a conformational change that partially or completely blocks the function of the enzyme. Allosteric inhibition is considered for the treatment of cancer
