Intercurricular teaching programme Fish of our waters
The aim of the thesis was to create a proposal for a teaching programme focused on the issue of fish occurring in the Czech Republic, in order to facilitate the work of teachers who can use the activities during their personal practice. The first part of my thesis focuses on the issues of water around us (lakes, ponds, running waters) and on some of the fish species living in the Czech Republic which are introduced to pupils in primary school lessons. The second part focuses on the design of a cross-curricular teaching programme, which includes tools such as worksheets, pictures, etc. Last but not least, reflection from practice and evaluation tests are included to verify the effectiveness of the proposed activities. The results show that after the implementation of the proposed activities, students have an overview of fish and everything related to them. They know some of the representatives, they can tell what fish needs to live, what it looks like, describe its body, distinguish between freshwater and marine fish, know what they breathe, what the fish's lateral line is for, etc. They also know what a fisherman needs to own when he wants to catch a fish and that it is not an easy job.
Tactile discrimination and excitability of α-motoneurons

Title of diploma thesis: Tactile discrimination and excitability of alpha motoneurons Objectives: The aim of this thesis is to detect whether tactile discrimination tasks affect the excitability of the alpha motoneurons. Methods: Seven volunteers aged between 20 and 26 years participated in this study. The H reflex, (M wave) were recorded during three control and three experimental conditions. The control conditions preceded each experimental condition. By stimulating the tibialis nerve in the popliteal fossa the H reflex was elicited and its amplitude and latency measured at rest (control) and during tactile discrimination tasks (experimental). As tactile discrimination tasks, three separate tasks were chosen-tactile stimulation, escape reaction to tactile stimulation, and two-point discrimination. We used an EMG stimulator with a constant voltage output and monophasic squared pulses, with a 0,5 ms interval. The stimulation was switched on manually every 3-5 seconds. To detect the electrical potential of the soleus muscle, we used a surface EMG device, a GrassTelefactor, with galvanic isolation complying with EU standards. The parameters measured were the latency and amplitude of the H reflex and M wave during the tactile discrimination tasks and these were then compared to the values at rest. The...
