Quick – before you have to pee… listen to this song about the path of filtrate to excretion as urine.
Groovin’ on the Nephron Line
This song follows filtrate on its journey through a nephron to excretion. Notice that the vocal is low while passing through the descending loop of Henle and goes high again on the ascending loop. Note also that the reverb or wavery / distant quality of the vocal intensifies as the filtrate descends through the loop of Henle mirroring the increase in solute concentration as filtrate travels down the descending loop. Follow the lyrics as they trace the path of filtrate through the nephron.
