Medical Biology Course content The conventional way of looking at Medicine is through the diagnosis of illness and the prescription of drugs. This course approaches medical biology through one of its major fields, toxicology, taking drugs as the starting point rather than the 'cure'.
Toxicology is the scientific study of adverse effects in living organisms due to environmental agents and chemical compounds found in nature, as well as pharmaceutical compounds synthesized for medical use by humans.
It involves observing and reporting on the symptoms, mechanisms, detection and treatment of toxic substances in relation to the poisoning of humans; producing toxic effects such as disturbance in growth patterns, discomfort, disease and death.
It focuses on the adverse effects that can occur in living organisms that come into contact with chemicals. Course outcomes By the end of you will become aware of the pathologies associated with toxicology and the risk assessment work of toxicologists. You will learn about current debates centered on drug abuse and will discuss recent high-profile cases.

Plato, Descartes, and The Matrix Kyra Eigenberger Liberty University Deception is the foundational issue prevalent in The Matrix, Plato’s allegory of the cave, and Rene Descartes meditations. In each of these excerpts the goal of answering the question of what is real and how to uncover the truth is essential.
The Matrix movie had many similarities with the readings from Plato and Descartes. All three discussed the scenario in which reality was discovered to be a non-reality. Plato, Descartes, and The Matrix are all similar in that they consider people living in a world that they discover is not real and that they exist in perceived delusions that produce resulting anti-realities.
The Matrix also compares with Descartes’ beliefs on the power and perceptions of individuals’ mind. The issue of reality raised in the movie resembles closely to that of Plato’s (allegory of the cave).
The clash between the Cyclops and Odysseus is, in its unique way, the strongest analog to a cave painting that exists in the literature of the West, containing, as it does, a sacred space where indigenous vision is transcribed for future generations.
