Frontiers in Clinical Drug Research -- Diabetes and Obesity is an eBook series that brings updated reviews to readers interested in advances in the development of pharmaceutical agents for the treatment of two metabolic diseases -- diabetes and obesity.
Obesity is a complex health problem, caused by a number of factors such as excessive food intake, lack of physical activity, genetic predisposition, endocrine disorders, medications and psychiatric illnesses.
'A Blueprint for the Hard Problem of Consciousness' addresses the fundamental mechanism that allows physical events to transcend into subjective experiences, termed the Hard Problem of Consciousness. Consciousness is made available as the abstract product of self-referent realization of information by strange loops through the levels of processing of the brain.
'Recent Advances in Analytical Techniques' is a series of updates in techniques used in chemical analysis. Each volume presents a selection of chapters that explain different analytical techniques and their use in applied research.
The clinical research series on diabetes and obesity drug development continue to bring forth new information about the progress in the field.
The fourth volume of the series brings forth cutting-edge reviews on topics related to the development of new medicines that can help treat obesity and related disorders.
Recent Advances in Analytical Techniques presents comprehensive chapters on recent trends related to ionic liquids, chiral analysis, multi-parameter flow cytometry, electrospun nanofibers, neutron activation analysis, enantioselective chromatography, Ru(II)-polypyridyl complexes.
The sun is a moody creature subject to tantrums. When plasma explodes from its atmosphere, a shock wave of solar wind is felt on Earth. Solar aggression can create decorative aurorae and destructive geomagnetic storms. Our understanding of the sun could also be key to the hunt for extraterrestrial life.
Despite evidence of mental illness tending to run in families, and billions of dollars to fuel the research efforts of many smart scientists to probe deep inside our DNA, not a single specific brain cause has been found for any of the major mental disorders, nor lab test or scan to help psychiatrists' diagnoses. "This is as astounding as it is disappointing," writes ASU professor Randy Nesse in his new book, 'Good Reasons for Bad Feelings: Insights from the Frontier of Evolutionary Psychiatry.'
A Guide to Effective Studying and Learning, published by Oxford University Press, is co-authored by Professor Matthew Rhodes, Professor Anne Cleary, and Associate Professor Edward DeLosh, all faculty members in the Colorado State University Department of Psychology. Their experience as learning and memory scientists, as well as decades of established research, form the backbone of the book's major themes.
