Are deviations from the best memory purchase urispas 200mg with mastercard, the best mathematical ability effective urispas 200 mg, and the most verbal ability well characterized by comparison to dysfunctional machines? If our brains are depicted as machines, are there not instead many perfectly well running but different machines among them? Within limits, function which might otherwise be labeled pathological can facilitate specialization. Obsessives make good doctors, hysterics good actors, mild sociopaths good spies, extroverts good salesmen, introverts good poets, hyperactives brave soldiers, etc. So good function with regard to the structure and makeup of some organs, depends upon what an environment demands as well as upon what environment is selected, when there is the option of choosing. And assessment of what an environment demands or what environment to choose is in the province of clinical judgment and the judgment of the patient. The use of "well adapted" as the marker for "functional" invites other diffi- culties. This criterion requires us to privilege some historical, social or evolutionary state of affairs, presumably a relatively stable one, as the "state of nature" or 46 CHAPTER 2 "norm-determining state" to which we should be best adapted. But even if we could agree on what that "state of nature" or "norm-determining state" was, we would have to decide if uniform populations or diverse ones were optimally healthy then. Considering that a diverse population is usually more likely to survive environ- mental change than a uniform one, it would be odd to label the deviants from the mean in the population of that time and place, presumably ones who had fewer surviving offspring for one or two generations, as "sick. For example, height is favorable for finding and reaching things in trees but probably unfavorable for finding and picking things up off the ground. Large size helped people emerge victorious in fights but if the six billion humans alive today were all pygmies we might not be eating, burning and mining the environment out from under us. Conversely, the tendency to obesity in times of plenty can kill people when that plenty is constant and save them when feast alternates with times of famine. Other purported foundational criteria for "favorable functioning" of whole individuals, whether modeled as machines or otherwise, are also disputable. Is "favorable" functioning reproductive fitness as measured in the second generation? If so, then any characteristic leading one to be a semen donor would be, at present, the epitome of health. Is perfect adaptation to assembly line work, slavery or war something that should be valorized as healthy? When healthy bodily function is modeled on the proper operation of a machine, the metaphor, a widely influential one, is described by Mark Johnson as follows: The Body Is A Machine The body consists of distinct, though interconnected parts. Repair (treatment) may involve replacement, mending, alteration of parts, and so forth. Since parts causally connect, we must be alert for failures in causal connections. The body is seen as a container of replaceable parts which can be put in and taken out. In some respects this approach has been and will continue to be enormously useful. Machines do not HEALTH AND DISEASE 47 experience themselves, evaluate their own functioning (although they may monitor it according to fixed formulas), suffer when broken or taken out of service for repairs, or pay for their repairs. Disease Is Abnormality Health and disease are often thought of in statistical terms, with disease defined as anything that is statistically uncommon enough. Attempts to anchor health in the normal, defined statistically, are actually attempts to get away from normative, or value judgments. Unfortunately, the word norm gets used indiscriminately for both usual and desirable, but surreptitious elision from one use to the other does not justify conflating the two.

This develops from heart tubes formed by angiogenetic cells initially found in the wall of the yolk sac, from which the gut tube develops. Perhaps we have been too eager to over-analyze the vagus into parasympathetic, branchiomotor, and so on. Perhaps the "big picture" is that the vagus is the yolk sac nerve; the nerve of sustenance. Laryngeal speech indicates that the vagus is intact at least to the level of the upper thorax. The mediastinal course of the left recurrent laryngeal nerve means that left mediastinal tumours may present as voice changes. The superior laryngeal artery is related to the external laryngeal nerve near the origin of the artery, and the recurrent laryngeal nerve is related to the inferior thyroid artery close to the gland. Damage to the recurrent laryngeal nerves at this point nearly always affects fibres innervating the vocal cord abductors before those affecting adductors. This is serious, since if abduction is lost, the cords will be adducted and breathing will be difficult. Oddly enough, when clinicians refer to the eleventh cranial nerve, or acces- sory nerve, they almost always mean spinal accessory, which is not really a cranial nerve at all! Cranial accessory This arises from a caudal extension of the nucleus ambiguus by rootlets below and in series with those of IX and X. It joins the vagus, from which it is functionally indistinguishable (its name: accessory vagus). Some people hold that the muscles of the larynx and pharynx are innervated by the cranial accessory, leaving the vagus ‘proper’ with parasympathetic fibres only, but this is not certain. Clinically, such distinctions are unnecessary in any case, since when something goes wrong, it tends to affect a large area of the brain stem such that X and XI are likely to be affected along with other nerves. This is motor to the muscles bounding the posterior triangle of the neck: sternocleidomastoid and trapezius. Surface marking in poste- rior triangle: one third of way down posterior border of sternoclei- domastoid to one third of way up anterior border of trapezius. Cranial roots arise from nucleus ambiguus and join vagus – forget about them Spinal roots arise from cells in lateral part of ventral grey column of cervical cord. Nerve ascends through foramen magnum, then through jugular foramen to sternocleidomastoid and trapezius Fig. Cell bodies of spinal accessory motor neurons are in the lat- eral part of the ventral grey horn of the cervical cord in, apparently, a caudal extension of the nucleus ambiguus. Other muscles innervated by the nucleus ambiguus are classed as branchiomotor, yet not every- one is comfortable with this categorization for trapezius and stern- ocleidomastoid since it is not clear from which (if any) branchial arch they arise. It is intriguing to note, though, that branchial arch muscles are concerned with the cranial end of the gut tube and with nutrition, and the spinal accessory innervates muscles that move the head and neck when you are searching for food (e. Such injuries result in paralysis of trapezius (but not sternocleidomastoid which it has already supplied) and thus shoulder abduction beyond 90° involving scapular rotation is impaired (hair grooming, etc. The accessory nerve may be dam- aged in dissection of the neck for malignant disease, in biopsy of enlarged lymph nodes in and around the posterior triangle, or in penetrating injuries to this region.
