Neuroendocrine Cells and their effect on Endocrine Neural Interactions

I focused on explaining “how the endocrine system and nervous interact with each other”. I did this by exploring neuroendocrine tumors. Neuroendocrine tumors or NETS is a classification of rare tumors called neuroendocrine neoplasms—the heterogeneous tumor affects neuroendocrine cells meaning endocrine cells connected to the nervous system (Oronsky, Ma, Morgensztern, & Carter, 2017). Neuroendocrine cells are similar to nerve cells and hormone-producing cells in traits (Neuroendocrine tumors, 2023). The neuroendocrine system is responsible for transporting information, regulating metabolic functions, and controlling the interaction between the body’s organs (NeuroEndocrine Cancer Australia, 2022). Neuroendocrine cells make hormones like endocrine cells, receive signals like nerve cells, and release hormones (NeuroEndocrine Cancer Australia, 2022).

Mapping brain activity of language comprehension for dyslexic vs. non-dyslexic brains / Using a 3D model

Abstract For my STEAM project, I focused on the objective statement “Identify the various components and key structures of the nervous system.” To do so I decided to build a model of the human brain showing the cerebrum, cerebellum, and brain stem. I then focused on the areas involved in …
