As the lively interface of the main biologically intimate connection among residing organisms, a mom and her fetus, the placenta is essential to human evolution and survival. Michael L. energy and Jay Schulkin discover the greater than a hundred million years of evolution that ended in the human placenta and, in so doing, they assist get to the bottom of the mysteries of life's first moments.
Starting with a few of the earliest occasions that experience motivated the trail of placental evolution in mammals and progressing to the specifics of the human placenta, this ebook examines smooth gestation inside an evolutionary framework. people are a profitable species and our numbers have elevated dramatically given that our earliest days on the earth. even though, human fetal improvement is fraught with negative results for either the mummy and fetus which seem to be, if now not special, way more universal in people than in different mammals. excessive premiums of early being pregnant loss, nausea and vomiting while pregnant, preeclampsia and similar maternal high blood pressure, and preterm start are infrequent or absent in different mammals but common in people.
Power and Schulkin clarify why this obvious contradiction exists and handle such themes as how the placenta regulates and coordinates the metabolism, progress, and improvement of either mom and fetus, the placenta’s position in conserving a fetus from the mother’s immune method, and placental illnesses. within the approach, they display the important significance of this organ—which consists ordinarily of fetal cells—for us as members and as a species.

Epilepsy, essentially the most well-known neurological issues, impacts nearly 1% (greater than 60 million) of the world's inhabitants. In an expected 20 million of those sufferers, seizures should not managed even by way of a number of anti-seizure medicines, and are tremendous tough to foretell. Epilepsy: The Intersection of Neurosciences, Biology, arithmetic, Engineering, and Physics seamlessly brings jointly the neurosciences, arithmetic, computational sciences, engineering, physics, and scientific epileptology to offer to readers a hugely didactic, built-in, transparent and virtually precious wisdom base and examine instructions.

The Fractal version of existence takes a glance at biology from a very varied standpoint. It describes advanced lifestyles kinds as equation-like constructions, the place it appears varied components are diversified expressions of a primary precept. to demonstrate this concept a catalog of analogous configurations within the human physique is laid out besides the explanations that ended in those analogies in a language that's special but in addition available.
Warum gibt es keine Mammuts mehr? Wen jagte der Tyrannosaurus rex? Und battle der Neandertaler wirklich eine Sackgasse der Evolution? Um diese Fragen zu beantworten, müsste guy eigentlich zurück in die Urzeit reisen können. Doch den Paläontologen gelingt es heute dank modernster Methoden auch ohne Zeitmaschine, aus fossilen Knochen, Pflanzenrelikten, aber auch Resten urzeitlicher DNA faszinierende Einblicke in die Tier- und Pflanzenwelt vergangener Epochen zu gewinnen.
