In order to perform its functions, the nervous system consists essentially of three parts, viz. a sensory division, a central connecting part and a motor division. The sensory division consists of special sensory nerve-endings and fibres capable of relaying impulses; the central co-ordinating mechanism is required for the interpretation of sensations and the initiation of appropriate 32 BIOLOGICAL BACKGROUND TO EDUCATION Motor Area Cerebrum Visual Area ite Matter Grey Matter Peripheral Nerve To Motor Nerve-endings in muscles controlling kicking action FIG.
Haemophilia is a dangerous condition in which the blood clots very slowly with the consequence that a sufferer can easily bleed to death. Although the condition is carried by women, the disease itself is found only in men. This is presumably because the presence of two haemophilia chromosomes in a female foetus usually leads to death at an early stage of pregnancy. In practice the disease usually results from the union of a female carrier of the disease with a normal male. This can result, on average, in half the male children being haemophiliac and half the females being haemophilia carriers.
In most communities close inbreeding is forbidden, although cousin marriages are generally allowed. Many such consanguineous marriages produce no defective children, but evidently, the genetic history of related marriage partners should be known, as far as possible, before such a couple conceive children. Not all genetically determined conditions are recessive by any means. Some, such as polydactyly (extra digits) and split hand, are in fact dominant to the normal condition. Most of the conditions due to mutant genes are disadvantageous to an organism.
