Intelligence and Evolutionary Biology by Harry J. Jerison (auth.), Harry J. Jerison, Irene Jerison

By Harry J. Jerison (auth.), Harry J. Jerison, Irene Jerison (eds.)

In evolutionary biology, "intelligence" needs to be outlined when it comes to characteristics which are topic to the main forces of natural evolution. hence, this quantity is worried with the major questions which are suitable to the evolutionary challenge. Comparisons of studying skills are highlighted by way of an in depth record on similarities among honeybees and better vertebrates. numerous chapters are excited by the evolution of cerebral lateralization and the keep an eye on of language, and up to date analyses of the evolution of encephalization and neocorticalization, together with a assessment of results of domestication on mind measurement are offered. the connection among mind dimension and intelligence is debated vigorously. most unique, even though, is the power obstacle with analytic and philosophical matters that come up within the research of this subject, from the purposes of recent advancements on man made intelligence as a resource of cognitive conception, to the popularity of the evolutionary approach itself as a idea of information in "evolutionary epistemology".

The Collected Papers of Franco Modigliani, Volume 6 by Franco Modigliani

By Franco Modigliani

This quantity of papers, articles, and essays by means of the past due Nobel Prize-winning economist Franco Modigliani includes writings released over the past decade of his lifestyles in addition to 3 seminal prior papers at the life-cycle speculation. As within the earlier accrued Papers, the writings are prepared by means of subject; inside of every one subject, the order is chronological. half I treats the life-cycle speculation. starting together with his very important essay from 1954 (written with Richard Brumberg), which laid down the root of the life-cycle version, and finishing with the final paper Modigliani accomplished sooner than his loss of life in September 2003, this part offers his study in this subject as a coherent entire. half II bargains with unemployment and financial coverage within the ecu Union over the past decade of the 20th century and contains a manifesto on ecu unemployment written with six different economists. half III comprises essays on quite a few issues, between them inflation, monetary possibility, felony associations, and unemployment. This part comprises "The Keynesian Gospel based on Modigliani," which revisits the subject of the overall conception of employment, curiosity, and funds and its implications for mass unemployment sixty years after his first ground-breaking paper at the subject. some of the articles in quantity 6 are the made of collaboration; coauthors contain Richard Brumberg, Albert Ando, Shi Larry Cao, Jean Paul Fitoussi, Tullio Jappelli, Beniamino Moro, Denis Snower, Robert Solow, Alfred Steinherr, Paolo Sylos Labinia, and Modigliani's granddaughter Leah Modigliani. the amount concludes with an interview of Modigliani by means of William A. Barnett and Robert Solow from 2000.

Systems Biology in Drug Discovery and Development: Methods by Bulbul Chakravarti, Buddhadeb Mallik, Deb N. Chakravarti

By Bulbul Chakravarti, Buddhadeb Mallik, Deb N. Chakravarti (auth.), Qing Yan (eds.)

Due to the failing “one-drug-fits-all” version, it has develop into more and more essential to boost custom-made medication that treats complete structures and brings definitely the right drug to the appropriate sufferer with the fitting dosages. In structures Biology in Drug Discovery and improvement: equipment and Protocols, prime specialists supply a realistic, state of the art, and holistic view of the interpretation of platforms biology into larger drug discovery and customized clinical perform. whereas the 1st a part of the e-book describes state-of-the-art applied sciences and techniques within the box, the second one half illustrates how the applied sciences might be utilized in technological know-how for disorder realizing and healing discovery. As a quantity within the hugely winning equipment in Molecular Biology™ sequence, this assortment offers the type of special description and implementation recommendation that's an important for buying optimum effects. Authoritative and up to date, structures Biology in Drug Discovery and improvement: tools and Protocols covers subject matters from primary options to complex applied sciences in an effort to most sensible serve biomedical scholars and execs in any respect degrees who're drawn to very important integrative reviews in molecular biology, genetics, bioinformatics, bioengineering, biochemistry, body structure, pathology, microbiology, immunology, pharmacology, toxicology, drug discovery, and medical medicine.

Arabidopsis Protocols 2nd edition (Methods in Molecular by Julio Salinas (Editor), Jose J., Ph.D. Sanchez-Serrano

By Julio Salinas (Editor), Jose J., Ph.D. Sanchez-Serrano (Editor)

This number of conveniently reproducible Arabidopsis protocols has been up-to-date to mirror fresh advances in plant biology, the finishing touch of the Arabidopsis genome series, that's crucial for learning plant functionality, and the improvement of entire structures ways that let international research of gene expression and protein and metabolite dynamics. The authors have incorporated approximately all recommendations built in Arabidopsis, others lately tailored from the conventional paintings in crop species, and the newest ones utilizing Arabidopsis as a version method. Highlights comprise the newest methods-transcriptomics, proteomics, and metabolomics - and their novel functions (phosphoproteomics, DNA microarray-based genotyping, excessive throughput metabolite profiling, and single-cell RNA).
