Transcript

  • 1. My first RISE Program seminar in this new school year wasvery interesting and full of knowledge. This was given by Ms.Eileen Rodríguez, from Michigan State University. She did a veryinteresting research entitled “The pathophysiological significance ofneuronal nitric oxide synthase in the gastrointestinal tract. I learnedmany things from this research and also from Eileens speech. Sheexplained the parts of a neuron, their variety, and function. Whatcalled my attention the most was that neurons arent only in the brain;they are also in the stomach, and in other parts of the body. Anotherthing is that we should have a good balance of nitric oxide (NO) andneuronal nitric oxide synthase (nNOS) in our gastrointestinal tractin order to have good nutrition and to avoid diseases related withan imbalance in the synthesis of that molecule. In conclusion, thisseminar contributed to my plan, that is to keep following the research. Questions: 1) Why is the relaxation of the smooth muscle important? 2) What food(s) could be a good source for the synthesis of NitricOxide? 3) What is the function of the myenteric plexus?
