You are intelligent enough to know that the purpose of most science fair projects is to teach students how to use scientific methods to solve problems on their own. However, time and distance both have been conquered by Science. In the meantime, treatments and rehabilitation allow many people with spinal cord injuries to lead productive, independent lives. A science fair project on testing drinking water can help them learn what is in the water they use.
A nontraumatic spinal cord injury may be caused by arthritis, cancer, inflammation, infections or disk degeneration of the spine. Our staff specializes in spinal cord injury and treats a high volume of patients – nearly 450 each year. If all feeling (sensory) and all ability to control movement (motor function) are lost below the spinal cord injury, your injury is called complete.
The authors of a 2017 study which found that reading science fiction makes you stupidâ€ have conducted a follow-up that found that it’s only bad sci-fi that has this effect: a well-written slice of sci-fi will be read just as thoroughly as a literary story.
Tracts in your spinal cord carry messages between your brain and the rest of your body. Track record: SCI has an extensive track record of aiding governments to start and scale-up national deworming programs, as discussed above. D travels through a post-apocalyptic world set in the far future; the land makes for a unique blend of science fiction and high fantasy.
This video highlights how a person with a spinal cord injury at C7 uses adaptive equipment to perform his own bowel management. To address this challenge our team has begun assembling a large multicenter, multispecies database of SCI research data spanning across a wide spectrum of SCI severities, treatments and outcomes.
