Anatomy and Physiology I

Robin Michaels, PhD

When did doctors, scientists, etc. go from dressing in street clothes as in Rembrandt's "Anatomy Lesson" to wearing scrubs? In other words, when did they first recognize the concept of contamination from Doctor to Patient and vice versa?
Can you talk about how stress affects digestion/elimination?
For a gastric bypass patient who must take supplements to replace nutrients lost because of shortening of the small intestine: Do the supplements reach your system as quickly as they would have naturally?
How would a person who has no colon be able to gain weight, if the food passes right through?
If you have low blood pressure your kidneys do not function well; does that mean if you have high blood pressure you will pee more or do you kidneys work harder?
What is the physiological function of the sense of taste?
I suffer from acid reflux disease, are there any home remedies that could help keep it down?
Why is it more difficult to lose weight when you take insulin?
If “calories in equals calories out” means that when you follow this you maintain your weight, what then does metabolism affect?
There are some people who eat a lot of unhealthy foods, yet never gain weight. Why?
Why is it after a lot of exercise, for example a 7 mile hike or run, you don't feel like eating?
Is it necessary for students to take Anatomy and Physiology classes before entering into medical school? Or will medical students learn what they need to know once we get to medical school?
Could it be that we could have one large kidney instead of two?
What would you think was happening to a person if they are having difficulty breathing, as well as acid reflux and constant loss of energy?
Not to be rude or offensive to anyone with cancer, but if there was no way to treat it, would cancer eventually die out if everyone with it were to pass away?
Is it possible to disable the sense in your brain that saves fat? If so, what are the results of that change?
How do I leave my body to the University of Colorado Med School? Or where else would be of value?
I'm curious, how well does the body (or can it) regenerate tissue that is lost? Specifically, in Celiac disease, where the villi of the intestine are worn down and "blunted", can the removal of the foreign substance (i.e. gluten in wheat) allow the villi to regenerate?
Still about Celiac disease, I would think the disease has some immunological basis. Can the tolerance of wheat products be re-established after the initial immune response has quieted down?
