15 Cells are pretty smart, too! Cells know what they’re supposed to do, and how to do it n given the right environments & nutrients to trigger their “developmental programmes” n For example, individual neural stem cells can grow, reproduce, & organize themselves to form brains n *** Check out this video about growing “mini-brains” started from some neural stem cells - (14.24 min start 5.50) Some cells in multicelled organisms stay “single” and they go to war and “HUNT DOWN” foreign invaders within the multicelled body they live it n Example showed in class: Neutrophil Chase (David Rogers at Vanderbilt University, 1950) n Example showed in class: Chemotaxis n Here’s how neutrophils “hunt” inside the body - Extravasation of Neutrophils n ***

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
