Halsted, Cushing and Young operating Featured 25 Jan 2014 Print

Halsted, Cushing and Young operating

Halsted, Cushing and Young operating. Pioneering American surgeons William Halsted (1852-1922), Harvey Cushing (1869-1939) and Hugh Hampton Young (1897-1941) operating on a patient at John Hopkins Hospital, Baltimore, USA, with physicians and students watching. Halsted was one of the four founding physicians of John Hopkins Hospital, which opened in 1889. He introduced aseptic technique and the Halstedian approach to surgery, which emphasised the careful handling of human tissue, control of bleeding and anatomically accurate dissection and suturing of tissue. Cushing was a skilful brain surgeon who pioneered several important techniques, including the control of blood pressure during surgery. Young specialised in genito-urinary surgery, performing the first surgery for the treatment of prostate cancer. Photographed circa 1903-1904

Nervous system cells, artwork

Nervous system cells. Computer artwork showing neurons (nerve cells, purple), astrocytes (green) and a blood vessel (along right). Neurons are responsible for passing information around the central nervous system (CNS) and from the CNS to the rest of the body. Each nerve cell comprises a body surrounded by numerous extensions called dendrites, which collect information from other nerve cells or from sensory cells. Each neuron also has one process called an axon, which passes information to other nerve cells, or to effector cells such as muscle fibres. The axons appear segmented as they are surrounded by a myelin sheath. Astrocytes provide support for the neurons. They surround and regulate synapses and supply neurons with nutrients
