The sensory receptors functions as the very first component in sensory system and they respond to specific stimulus modalities. By initiating transduction the sensory receptor responds to the stimulus. This is accomplished by a net shift in the initial states of a receptor. Tue, 09 Mar 2010 00:00:00 -0500

Mind: It’s Not All In Your Head Posted By : Bea Armstrong

A scientific and philosophical rent that has existed for nearly 400 years is now being resewn.

Doctors treated the body; psychologists the mind. There was always some doubt among both camps of the validity of this split, but the medical community especially quickly debunked any of their own who went public with such doubts.–It-s-Not-All-In-Your-Head/209295 Tue, 02 Mar 2010 00:00:00 -0500–It-s-Not-All-In-Your-Head/209295

I used to joke that I could say on national TV my life story and people would cry at first and then those people would start laughing their butts off when they realize that their life has not had nearly as many bad breaks as mine.
