Small outpouching from the main part of a tubular organ or structure.
A neurotransmitter in the brain that regulates movement, emotion, motivation, and the feeling of pleasure; the precursor of norepinephrine.
Purpose: Medical instrument which uses reflected sound waves (i.e. ultrasound) to evaluate blood as it flows through a blood vessel.
How Works: A transducer is passed lightly over the skin above a blood vessel which sends and receives sound waves that are amplified through a microphone. The sound waves bounce off solid objects, including blood cells. The movement of blood cells causes a change in pitch of the reflected sound waves. Information from the reflected sound waves can be processed by a computer to provide graphs or pictures that represent the flow of blood through the blood vessels.
Plane parallel to the back, dividing the body in top and bottom halves; as a direction, towards the back.

Venous channels found between layers of dura mater in the brain. They receive blood (from internal and external veins of the brain) and cerebrospinal fluid (from the subarachnoid space via the arachnoid villa) which ultimately empty into the internal jugular vein; also called dural sinuses, cerebral sinuses, and cranial sinuses.
