This unified treatment rests on two basic claims. The first is that conscious, intentional minds like ours are essentially...
Non-viral Gene Therapy: Gene Design and Delivery
Non-viral Gene Therapy: Gene Design and Delivery

Several years ago, when the discovery of catalytic RNA was recognized in a public manner, many people asked if new ?elds of therapy would soon be available.

Color Atlas of Human Poisoning and Envenoming
Color Atlas of Human Poisoning and Envenoming
The field of medical toxicology can be simply divided into animal and human poisonings from animal, plant, or man-made sources. Even more precisely, toxinology is the study of poisoning and envenoming by biological organisms, and toxicology is the study of human poisoning from manmade sources. Living organisms, such as animals,...
Origamics: Mathematical Explorations Through Paper Folding
Origamics: Mathematical Explorations Through Paper Folding
The art of origami, or paper folding, is carried out using a square piece of paper to obtain attractive figures of animals, flowers or other familiar figures. It is easy to see that origami has links with geometry. Creases and edges represent lines, intersecting creases and edges make angles, while the intersections themselves represent points....
Leptin (Endocrine Updates)
Leptin (Endocrine Updates)
The discovery of leptin by Friedman and his colleagues in 1994 was a seminal discovery in the study of metabolism, providing a new tool to study energy expenditure and appetite regulation. Early studies actively investigated many aspects of metabolism, obesity, and diabetes but it was soon evident that leptin was much more than...

Thinking Fluid Dynamics With Dolphins (Stand Alone)
Thinking Fluid Dynamics With Dolphins (Stand Alone)
This small volume is the English edition of a Japanese book entitled "Learning fluid dynamics from dolphins". The title is derived from the fact that "Dolphins swim too fast to be explained scientifically". The first person to clearly describe this phenomenon was the English biologist Sir James Gray (J.Gray, 1936), and...
Hibernation (Greenwood Guides to the Animal World)
Hibernation (Greenwood Guides to the Animal World)

There are many examples of the amazing evolutionary adaptations in the animal kingdom that aid survival, but the ability of animals to hibernate is one of the most incredible. Most vertebrates must keep warm, because hypothermia or loss of body heat is potentially fatal, but some have evolved to withstand a massive drop in...

Tracking the Neolithic House in Europe: Sedentism, Architecture and Practice (One World Archaeology)
Tracking the Neolithic House in Europe: Sedentism, Architecture and Practice (One World Archaeology)

The Neolithic period is noted primarily for the change from hunter-gatherer societies to agriculture, domestication and sedentism. This change has been studied in the past by archaeologists observing the movements of plants, animals and people. But has not been examined by looking at the domestic architecture of the time. Along with tracking...
