Schizophrenia can be a tricky illness to define; not all symptoms are common from individual to individual, and even symptoms like hallucinations and delusions are not universal symptoms. The one correlation that can be found is the presence of Thought Disorder: the loss of logical thought processes that either allow the affected individual to make sense of their own thoughts, or keep their thoughts in a logical pattern and reason away ideas we could easily deem absurd.

It can cause constipation, diarrhea, and vomiting and sometimes lead to serious colon complications, like enterocolitis and toxic megacolon, which can be life-threatening. Children who have Hirschsprung disease are missing those nerves along part of the length of their colons.

The article, “Spatial Assessment of Wolf-Dog Hybridization in a Single Breeding Period”, it talks about how studies on wolf-dog hybrids is becoming larger and larger. Saying how it is hard to do large sample data collecting due to the wide range of the packs. Because wolves and dogs share many traits it is hard for scientists to determine which genes to use to test DNA and separate the two. Because dogs and wolves have such similar characteristics, it is sometimes hard to tell the difference between a wolf, a dog, and a hybrid.

“Human melanocortin 1 receptor (MC1R) gene variants alter melanoma cell growth and adhesion to extracellular matrix” examines the long-known connection between mutations in the gene MC1R and predisposition to skin cancer. This gene is responsible for the production of melanin, a protein which affects external pigmentation, in particular affecting the hair and skin color of humans.
