Embodied Minds in Action In Embodied Minds in Action, Robert Hanna and Michelle Maiese work out a unified treatment of three fundamental philosophical problems: the mind-body problem, the problem of mental causation, and the problem of action. 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
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. Although some tentative positive answers were given, nobody would say with certainty that RNA of various kinds was a truly promising means of altering gene expression. In fact, over the...
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 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)
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... Organic Pollutants: An Ecotoxicological Perspective, Second Edition A companion to he much praised Principles of Ecotoxicology the book covers organic pollutants in greater depth and detail than has been covered in a textbook before. The first part of the book covers issues such as chemical warfare; metabolism of pollutants in animals and plants; environmental fate; and effects within ecosystems. This is followed...
