Tripto, Jaklin; Assaraf, Orit Ben Zvi; Amit, Miriam – Instructional Science: An International Journal of the Learning Sciences, 2018
The goal of this study was to identify and understand the mental models developed by 67 high school biology students as they learn about the human body as a complex system. Using concept maps, it sought to find an external way of representing how students organize their ideas about the human body system in their minds. We conducted a qualitative…

Anderson-Long, Maria Alana – ProQuest LLC, 2019
This study, a multisite qualitative case study, examines the responses of three institutions of higher education to normative disruption of the gender binary. Normative disruption, or the challenging of the social status quo, occurs when power structures in society are pushed back against. Central to this study is the use of open systems theory,…

Ruiz-Robledillo, Nicolás; Moya-Albiol, Luis – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2015
Caring for a relative with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) entails being under chronic stress that could alter body homeostasis. Electrodermal activity (EDA) is an index of the sympathetic activity of the autonomic nervous system related to emotionality and homeostasis. This study compares EDA in response to acute stress in the laboratory between…

Grayman-Simpson, Nyasha; Doucet, Fabienne; Burgos-López, Luz – Journal of Transformative Education, 2019
Critical race courses challenge today's college students to cognitively grapple with issues of justice and the good society. In some instances, these challenges lead to positive, relational growth-fostering attitudes and behaviors. Transformative learning educator Jack Mezirow's approach to facilitating cognitive shifts appears especially…

Morales, Asia Liza; Rowton, Edgar; Anderson, Margery; Yourick, Debra – Science Teacher, 2017
During the Jurassic period (201 million to 145 million years ago), termites up to 15 mm long consumed and recycled vegetation and feces. Since then, termites have evolved into some 3,000 identified species, have colonized every continent except Antarctica, and are major contributors to nutrient cycling and vertebrate food webs (Shaw 2014).…

Dampney, Roger A. L. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2016
This brief review, which is based on a lecture presented at the American Physiological Society Teaching Refresher Course on the Brain and Systems Control as part of the Experimental Biology meeting in 2015, aims to summarize current concepts of the principal mechanisms in the brain that regulate the autonomic outflow to the cardiovascular system.…

Peel, Amanda; Rockett, Jordan; Friedrichsen, Patricia; Zangori, Laura; Elmy, Clayton; Wagner, Brandon – Science Teacher, 2020
Vaping (the use of an e-cigarette) is a common practice among teenagers; 26.7% of high school students report vaping in the last 30 days (Johnston, Miech, O'Malley, Bachman, Schulenberg, and Patrick 2019), making this issue highly relevant. In order to make an informed decision about the use of e-cigarettes, students need to understand the impacts…

Bourlier, Virginie; Conte, Caroline; Denis, Colette; Dray, Cédric; Guillou, Pascale; Belliure, Manuela; Lorsignol, Anne; Noël, Marion; Buffin-Meyer, Bénédicte – Advances in Physiology Education, 2017
We describe here a collective and experimental research project-based learning (ERPBL) for master's students that can be used to illustrate some basic concepts on glucose/lipid homeostasis and renal function around a topical issue. The primary objective of this ERPBL was to strengthen students' knowledge and understanding of physiology and…

Gillespie, Amanda I.; Slivka, William; Atwood, Charles W., Jr.; Abbott, Katherine Verdolini – Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research, 2015
Purpose: The larynx has a dual role in the regulation of gas flow into and out of the lungs while also establishing resistance required for vocal fold vibration. This study assessed reciprocal relations between phonatory functions--specifically, phonatory laryngeal airway resistance (R[subscript law])--and respiratory homeostasis during states of…

Chiappero, Julieta; Cappellari, Lorena del Rosario; Palermo, Tamara Belen; Giordano, Walter; Banchio, Erika – Biochemistry and Molecular Biology Education, 2021
Drought is a major environmental stress factor that affects the growth and development of plants. All plants have to maintain the reactive oxygen species within certain levels for normal cellular homeostasis by means of their antioxidant systems, which can be classified as enzymatic and non-enzymatic. Plants under drought stress generate an excess…

Ziegler, Albert; Stoeger, Heidrun – High Ability Studies, 2019
Regulatory processes are pervasive on many levels in talent development, yet neither a systematic analysis of their role in talent development let alone a comprehensive model have been presented to date. The aim of this article is to demonstrate the diversity and complexity of regulatory processes in talent development and to provide a conceptual…

Sasse, Heide; Leuchter, Miriam – Frontline Learning Research, 2021
The emotions experienced by primary school students have both positive and negative effects on learning processes. Thus, to better understand learning processes, research should consider emotions during class. Standard survey-based methods, such as self-reports, are limited in terms of capturing the detailed trajectories of primary school…

Sundman, Eva; Olofsson, Peder S. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2014
Neural reflexes support homeostasis by modulating the function of organ systems. Recent advances in neuroscience and immunology have revealed that neural reflexes also regulate the immune system. Activation of the vagus nerve modulates leukocyte cytokine production and alleviates experimental shock and autoimmune disease, and recent data have…
