The cortex of the bone becomes thinned leading to pathologic fracturing and distortion of the bones in the face and skull.
A split end occurs when the protective cuticle is worn away on the tip of a strand, allowing the fibers of the cortex to unravel and the hair to split lengthwise.
The cortex is the middle layer where pigment is located.
Careful prospective and controlled studies of autonomic function will clarify the roles of the cortex and the brainstem in the generation and expression of seizures.
A similar result was obtained in an autopsy study in which the cadmium concentration of the kidney cortex was analyzed.
Once incorporated into the cortex of the hair, these traces of drug are permanently retained and substantially immune to any attempts to remove them.
The cortex and plasma membrane were modeled as thin elastic shells.
The eye has been compared to a camera due to its ability to process images for interpretation by the occipital cortex of the brain.
Distribution of the cadmium concentration in the kidney cortex , liver, and lung, with respect to age, is shown in Figure 1.
In fact, the cortex , midbrain, medulla and spinal cord are already simultaneously active when a baby moves a limb.
