Critical Thinking 106

Critical Thinking Questions 1. In multiple sclerosis, nerve fibers in the central nervous system lose their myelin. Why would this loss affect skeletal muscle function? 1. Myelin is responsible for the transport of electrical signals to the brain and spinal cord. When myelin is lacking these signals can become blocked, and the brain is unable to send or receive messages. This causes a lack of skeletal muscle function. 2. Intravenous drug abusers sometimes dissolve and then inject drug tablets that contain fillers, such as talc or cornstarch. These fillers may obstruct tiny blood vessels in the cerebrum. What problems might such obstructions create? 1. These fillers might cause a stroke if they obstruct blood vessels in the brain. It also may result in brain infarction. 3.
