Pinned vertebrae, X-ray Featured 5 Feb 2004 Print

Pinned vertebrae, X-ray

Pinned vertebrae. Coloured X-ray of pins (beige) joining two of the vertebrae (pink) of a 29 year old woman together to immobilise them. Vertebrae are the box-like bones that make up the spine. They protect the spinal cord and support the body. Normally, vertebrae are separated by intervertebral discs, flexible pads that impart a degree of flexibility to the spine and help it to absorb shocks. However, the disc between the two pinned vertebrae was damaged, and the two were joined together to prevent further damage occurring. The two pinned vertebrae are L3 and L4, in the lower (lumbar) back. The pelvis is seen at bottom, with some ribs at upper left and right

Artwork of the memory areas of the brain

Brain memory areas. Artwork of the human brain sectioned to reveal the memory areas. At top is the cerebrum (sagittal slice), the site of most conscious and intelligent activities. The limbic system includes the thalamus at centre right (blue), the hippocampus and amygdala (U-shaped) above it, and the mamillary body (thin with bulbous end). The limbic system is involved in emotional expression and memory formation. The spinal cord is at bottom frame with the cerebellum (striped) above it. The coloured spheres (top left) represent chemical neurotransmitters that transmit nerve impulses
