7.4 Summary of Section 7

Fibres of the cochlear nerve synapse on the cells of the cochlear nuclear complex which is the first station of the central auditory pathway. From here signals are sent to the superior olivary complex, the inferior colliculus, lateral lemniscus, medial geniculate nucleus and finally the auditory cortex. The central role of the auditory cortex is the processing of complex sounds.

Each cochlear nuclear complex receives input from only one ear. In the cochlear nuclear complex are several d

5.2 Energy sources in torpor and hibernation

For animals that show daily torpor, such as Siberian hamsters (Phodopus sungorus) and Djungarian hamsters (Phodopus campbelli) (Figure 28), blood glucose remains the respiratory fuel for several hours following its onset. Thereafter there is a gradual reduction in respiratory quotient (RQ) indicating a change to lipid metabolism as the metabolic rate is reduced.

4.7 Summary

Water in its ‘natural’ state supports a complex, yet fragile, ecosystem. The ability of natural watercourses to sustain aquatic life depends on a variety of physical, chemical and biological conditions. Biodegradable compounds, nutrients and dissolved oxygen must be available for the metabolic activities of the algae, fungi, bacteria and protozoa which are at the lowest level of the food chain. In addition, plant and animal growth cannot occur outside narrow ranges of temperature and pH.

9.4 Summary of Section 9

This section has illustrated what has to be done, by way of a long-term study, to yield meaningful information on the relationship between genes and development and the behaviour of the organism. It also illustrates the hugely complex nature of the relationship between genes and development and the behaviour of the organism. Yet this complexity is not the exception, it is the rule.

1.8 Summary

In this unit we have looked at how companies raise equity finance.

We have examined how companies may move from private equity finance, supported by the venture capital companies, to public equity finance through an IPO. We then went on to study seasoned or secondary equity offerings (SEOs) with particular focus on rights issues.

We looked at why companies may choose to list on more than one exchange and at the circumstances that might lead to a company de-listing and reverting to

13.3 Optical storage

A CD-ROM (Compact Disk Read Only Memory) uses a laser-based optical form of storage. This type of disk has been used for many years to distribute music and computer software. A CD-ROM drive is needed to read the disks. Data is locked into the disk during manufacture, and cannot afterwards be changed.

There are two other types of CD device for computers: CD-R (CD-recordable) and CD-RW (CD-rewritable). With the right sort of CD drive in your computer, you can ‘burn’ data (that

12.2 Bytes of data

You will recall from Section 6.2 that a binary digit, or bit, can have one of two values: either a 0 or a 1. In a computer, bits are assembled into groups of eight, and a group of eight bits is known as a byte. The abbreviation used for a byte is B, so 512 bytes would be written as 512 B. Although this course will use ‘b’ for bit and ‘B’ for byte, you should be aware that not everyone makes this clear distinction.

A byte of data can represent many different things in a co
