The cell story of Pinealocytes
I will deal with what is the cell Pinealocyte. The reason that I chose Pinealocyte is because I have never known and heard about this cell so I wanted to figure out. Then first, where is Pinealocyte found? – Pinealocyte is an important organ that has played a third eye role in history and religion. Now, it is placed inside of our cerebrum. Second, what does Pinealocyte do? Melatonin of Pinealocyte’s function is speeding up the bone growing, regulating biorhythm and adjusting reproductive function to nature change. Additionally, to operate Pinealoycte well, it needs light. Third, what does Pinealocyte look like? It looks like a pine cone so it has named Pinealcoyte, it came from “Pineal” in Latin and its colour is pink. Lastly, why the people need Pinealcoyte? I think it’s already explained at first. Well, to explain again, it helps us can sleep and wake up on time, grow faster and adjust our reproductive function.
First, what questions did you need to research in order to creare your cell story? – I had to enter “About Pinealocyte” on search tool. Second, what new or familiar digital tools did you try to use as you worked through this project? – I tried to use school digital tools, but I couldn’t understand almost things so I used a familiar digital tool. Third, what was the process you used to investigate the topic? – I researched these information from Korean website, Naver blog (https://m.blog.naver.com/PostView.nhn?blogId=msnayana&logNo=80106639872&proxyReferer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com%2F). Fourth, how did you verify and cite the information you found? – My mom is a doctor so I verified through her. Fifth, how did the process of completing this challenge go? What could you have done better? – I could have start this project earlier. I started this on Apr. 30 so I was really hurried. If I started earlier, this Cell Story must have better and deeper content.
