Brain anatomy, MRI scan Featured 25 Nov 2005 Image

Brain anatomy, MRI scan

Brain anatomy. Coloured magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scan of the human head from the side. The sagittal scan has halved the brain, revealing the internal anatomy. The brain's major area (across top and at the rear) is the cerebrum. This includes the folds of the outer layer (cerebral cortex) that produces memory, language and conscious movement. The brainstem (centre), at the base of the brain, runs down and connects to the spinal cord in the neck. It controls subconscious functions like breathing. The cerebellum (round area, right of the brainstem) controls balance, as well as muscle co-ordination. Skull, neck and face structures are also seen

Abstract Leonardo figures

Abstract Leonardo figures. Conceptual computer artwork of a male and a female figure depicted in the pose drawn by the Italian scientist and artist Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519). Leonardo's original artwork is called Vitruvian Man, after Vitruvius, an Ancient Roman architect who stated that the human form with arms and legs extended could be fitted into both a circle and a square. Leonardo's drawing successfully demonstrated this. The square shows that human height is typically equal to the span of the arms. The linking of the human form to the square and the circle was thought to reflect an underlying symmetry in the world. Vitruvian Man is one of the world's most widely used symbols

Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate Featured 25 Nov 2005 Image

Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate

Di(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate (DEHP), molecular model. Atoms, represented as tubes, are colour- coded; carbon (blue), oxygen (red) and hydrogen (white). Phthalates are a group of chemical compounds widely used as plasticisers, substances that soften plastics. Products they are used in include toys, medical devices, cosmetics, and food wrap. Phthalates do not chemically bind to the plastic and so readily leach out of it. This, with evidence that they may be carcinogenic, disrupt hormones and cause organ damage, led the European Union in June 2005 to ban the use of DEHP and other phthalates in toys and childcare articles where their concentration exceeds 0.1% of the mass of the material
