Yes, on occasion that does happen, though it is not too common in my experience. I would know the basics on all the curriculum though in principle ideally state/ nationals curriculum shouldn't be on the test. I don't have the rules with me right now but I believe the Anatomy curriculum for regionals and state is the same at least for Division B.

Wait... cranial nerves are supposed to be national level? We have seen them every test of the season...

Thanks, I guess I know what to expect for next year. Question time: Differentiate a toxic goiter from an endemic goiter.

My favorite by far is Saladin, but Grey's Anatomy isn't bad either

What are you getting out of Grey's Anatomy, specifically? Its level is well beyond introductory high school or college.

It helps get a deeper understanding of the overall event in my opinion, but yeah, it is def higher than something than Saladin

Grey's Anatomy is an overload of information, to be honest. The best resource to use is that of an anatomy textbook, however, if you can't get your hands on one then your best 1) looking at the training handouts on the official scioly site 2) finding anatomy notes or lecture series on youtube. I wrote some notes for anatomy for SSSS I would be fine with posting if you'd like.

No. Only neurons have axons.

Anatomy and physiology are closely related concepts which to understand how anatomical structures work. Both anatomy and physiology have been studied for centuries. Essay Writer

Do you guys think that all of the hormones given in the study handout with each organ are enough to study? Or are there more hormones that should be included?

For regionals, you should probably just learn those and their functions. For state you will probably need to learn more. For nats, you should priabaly know how they all are made ad their functions. For state you probably should hypo/hyper secretion for the basic hormones, what the ysmptoms are and what disease that might be.

Hello,

Does Wallerian degeneration occur in both the PNS and CNS, or just the CNS? Wikipedia says both, a majority refer to it occurring in peripheral nerves.

Thanks,

It seems that it does occur in both. However, microglia recruitment is slow and oligodendrocytes fail to degrade the myelin/other debris, so WD occurs much slower in the CNS than in the PNS. I find it rather strange that many sites describe it as unique to the PNS, as peer reviewed articles like this one (http://journals.plos.org/plosone/articl ... ne.0041441) are studying its mechanisms in the CNS.

Hey, everyone! I'm sure you get this question often, but what resources do you recommend for this event? Our family owns a copy of Gray's Anatomy, but other than that not too many anatomical books. Do you recommend using Wikipedia in conjunction with other sites? Quizlet? I know that diagrams will be useful as well.

Thanks for your help- (I'm going to be heading to Missouri this weekend, and learned I'll actually be passing by Ladue for all you in MO!)
