Dr Joseph Raimondo, a cellular neuroscientist at UCT's Department of human biology, explains: "The brain depends on the coordinated activity of multiple computational units - brain cells - for its operation." Cellular neuroscience is focused on how these single cells contribute to brain function and ...
Austin, Texas - Organs on a chip that recreate living human biology are poised to move into mainstream drug discovery and development, complementing, and eventually superseding, cell culture and animal models in preclinical safety and efficacy studies. In parallel, the chips are being used to model diseases, ...

A 2005 graduate of Kearney high school, he graduated from the University of Nebraska at Kearney with a double major in psychology and human biology in 2009. In December 2012, he graduated from Logan College of chiropractic outside St. Louis. He also has a master's degree in nutrition and human ...
And there are hundreds of labs around the world now doing similar things for other aspects of human biology. This all is just the tip of the CRISPR iceberg; its uses extend far beyond what I've mentioned here, and new applications are constantly being discovered. This is why it's unfair to lump CRISPR ...

But more importantly, rodents aren't always a good analogue for human biology - if they were, we'd have cured a lot more diseases than we have, with treatments that work on rats often falling short when extended to human trials. Finally, with rats' lifespans rarely exceeding three years, and humans ...

The strength of latex is put to the test in a series of experiments. Other activities include the science behind scents that are believed to have an aphrodisiac effect, and ...
The breakthrough will also expand our own understanding of human biology. "It's taken years of trial and error, making educated guesses and taking baby steps to finally produce functioning human muscle from pluripotent stem cells," study co-author Lingjun Rao said in a press release, adding that the ...
Other left-right asymmetries abound in human biology. Perhaps the most striking is the asymmetrical layout of our internal organs--heart, lungs and digestive track. But it's the clockwise or counterclockwise whorl of hair that has had a central role in understanding the genetics of handedness. Much like the ...
"It points out that the study of patients with rare diseases is essential to the advancement of our knowledge of human biology," adds Dr. Rosenblatt, who is the director of one of the referral laboratories in the world for patients suspected of having this genetic inability to absorb vitamin B12. *Vitamin B12, or ...
What happens when the power of advanced computing and large-scale data technologies are applied in healthcare and the life sciences? Imagine what might happen if two tsunamis came together near the coast. On April 26, Xconomy will explore how the inexorable trends in IT and life sciences are ...

In graduate school, I earned beer money by modelling for life drawing classes in various art departments. (Don't judge, grad school doesn't pay well and beer isn't free.)

The law and human biology often don't match up. In the UK you can have sex at 16, but you can't watch it until you're 18. Doesn't make much sense, but there we have it. So, is it biologically possible for a typical man to be sufficiently aroused by the sight of woman that it overwhelms his restraint? To answer ...

Regardless of how a woman's dressed, she retains autonomy; even if she desperately wants sex, it remains her decision regarding who she has sex with. Consent is still important, regardless of how confusing many (supposedly) find it. Having said that, the law and human biology often don't match up.
