Book Summary: Le cerveau est l’organe le plus extraordinaire, le plus fascinant du corps humain, un prodige de complexité. Pourtant, c’est aussi parfois un véritable idiot qui n’en fait qu’à sa tête ! Par exemple, pourquoi le cerveau nous donne-t-il le mal de mer ? Pourquoi trahit-il sur notre visage des émotions que l’on voudrait dissimuler ? Qu’est-ce qui peut bien le pousser à croire aux superstitions les plus folles ? A faire d’horribles cauchemars ou à avoir des hallucinations ? Et pourquoi parvient-on plus facilement à se rappeler un visage que le nom d’une personne ? Dans ce livre très accessible, un neuroscientifique explique le fonctionnement (et les dysfonctionnements) de nos neurones à la lumière des dernières découvertes. Et en comprenant ce qu’il y a vraiment dans le cerveau, on apprend aussi à en limiter les imperfections... Un voyage passionnant dans les méandres de notre matière grise ! Un neuroscientifique décryptece qui se passe vraiment dans votre tête.

Book Summary: Notre vie quotidienne est, depuis une trentaine d'années, bouleversée par une révolution technologique qui s'appuie sur des objets comme le transistor ou le laser. Cela n'aurait guère été possible sans l'apport de la physique quantique. Dans un ouvrage qui se veut ouvert à tout public cultivé et pas nécessairement scientifique, l'auteur se propose de donner les clés pour comprendre le fonctionnement d'objets emblématiques créés par l'ingénierie quantique comme les diodes laser ou les horloges atomiques, ainsi que les enjeux de recherches récentes par exemple sur les atomes froids ou les condensats de Bose-Einstein tout en évitant un certain formalisme mathématique élaboré. Il explore en profondeur les principes de ce qu'Alain Aspect a baptisé la « seconde révolution quantique » fondée sur le concept d'intrication, en traitant aussi bien de questions fondamentales comme la non-localité que des développements récents de la cryptographie et du calcul quantiques. Enfin il donne dans les deux derniers chapitres une discussion actualisée des problèmes posés par les fondements de la théorie quantique.

Book Summary: Nous nous croyons rationnels et informés. Ce n’est pas le cas. Nous nous trompons systématiquement, quel que soit notre niveau d’études, y compris – peut-être même plus – sur les sujets que nous croyons bien connaître. Mais, comme le met au jour Hans Rosling, statisticien de génie et star des conférences TED, les raisons pour lesquelles nous nous trompons sont toujours les mêmes! Hérité d’un ancestral instinct de survie, c’est le fonctionnement même de notre cerveau qui nous induit en erreur : • En nous incitant à chercher un coupable à tout phénomène • En résumant la plupart des problèmes en une stérile opposition binaire • En nous intimant de réagir dans l’urgence(confondant ainsi peur et danger) • En étant facilement ébloui par les gros chiffres • En dramatisant à l’excès (et en adorant ça)... Ce livre nous apprend à repérer les situations où nos biais de pensée déforment notre vision des choses. Indispensable pour comprendre le monde tel qu’il est, Factfulness permet de prendre, enfin, la saine habitude de ne fonder son opinion que sur des faits.

Book Summary: THIS BOOK HAS BEEN WRITTEN BECAUSE WE FEEL THAT THERE IS A NEED FOR AN up-to-date compact book on cell organelles that transmits the excitement and challenge of modern subcellular biology. We hope that the book will be interesting and useful to students of the biological sciences and medicine, and to those in the teaching professions who do not have ready access to research papers. Since space is at a premium, we have denied ourselves the luxury of a philosophical discussion of the problems of defining organelles. Rather we have chosen to include all those intracellular structures which have limiting membranes and definable compartments. The separate chapters consider nuclei, plastids, mitochondria, microbodies, endoplasmic and sarcoplasmic reticulum; Golgi bodies, lysosomes and various secretory vesicles, including chromaffin granules and synaptic vesicles. Nucleoli, ribosomes, and centrioles are included in the chapter on nuclei. New and exciting informatioIi about all these structures has emerged in recent years-for example; the nUcleosome, interrupted genes, signal sequences on proteins destined. for the bioenergetic organelles, mapping and sequencing of organelle genes, and consolidation of chemiosmosis as a unifying principle in energy transduction. We have outlined as many of these developments as possible and pointed out some areas of controversy. The literature on subcellular biology is so extensive that it would have been easier to have written a separate book on each organelle.

Book Summary: Aldosterone provides a comprehensive and detailed review of the problems that have arisen in the course of research on aldosterone, particularly with respect to their physiological roles and clinical implications. Topics covered include the biosynthesis, transport, and metabolism of aldosterone, as well as its biological activity and control of its secretion. A variety of pathological conditions, both acute and chronic, associated with aldosterone is also discussed. This volume is comprised of 10 chapters and opens with a historical background on aldosterone research, with emphasis on the discovery of the function of the adrenal cortex. The next chapter summarizes the methods suitable for the evaluation of aldosterone activity, from investigations of mineral metabolism to determination of the concentration of aldosterone or aldosterone metabolites; estimation of secretion of aldosterone; and examination of aldosterone metabolism. Subsequent chapters explore the biosynthesis, transport, and metabolism of aldosterone; secretion of aldosterone, factors affecting secretion, and how it can be controlled; pathological conditions caused by either an increase or a decrease in aldosterone secretion, including aldosteronism, Conn's syndrome, hypoaldosteronism, and hypomineralocorticism. The therapeutic uses of aldosterone are discussed in the last chapter. This book will appeal to biologists and biochemists.

Book Summary: Free Radicals in Biology and Medicine has become a classic text in the field of free radical and antioxidant research. Now in its fifth edition, the book has been comprehensively rewritten and updated whilst maintaining the clarity of its predecessors. Two new chapters discuss 'in vivo' and 'dietary' antioxidants, the first emphasising the role of peroxiredoxins and integrated defence mechanisms which allow useful roles for ROS, and the second containing new information on the role of fruits, vegetables, and vitamins in health and disease. This new edition also contains expanded coverage of the mechanisms of oxidative damage to lipids, DNA, and proteins (and the repair of such damage), and the roles played by reactive species in signal transduction, cell survival, death, human reproduction, defence mechanisms of animals and plants against pathogens, and other important biological events. The methodologies available to measure reactive species and oxidative damage (and their potential pitfalls) have been fully updated, as have the topics of phagocyte ROS production, NADPH oxidase enzymes, and toxicology. There is a detailed and critical evaluation of the role of free radicals and other reactive species in human diseases, especially cancer, cardiovascular, chronic inflammatory and neurodegenerative diseases. New aspects of ageing are discussed in the context of the free radical theory of ageing. This book is recommended as a comprehensive introduction to the field for students, educators, clinicians, and researchers. It will also be an invaluable companion to all those interested in the role of free radicals in the life and biomedical sciences.

Book Summary: The Biochemistry of Foreign Compounds presents the various aspects of biochemistry of foreign compounds in relation to toxicology, pathology, and pharmacology. This book discusses the classification of foreign compounds according to usage, namely, food additives, drugs, pesticides, industrial chemicals, and natural foreign compounds. Organized into two sections encompassing 12 chapters, this book starts with the absorption and secretion of foreign compounds. This text then discusses the two phases of reaction in the metabolism of foreign compounds. Other chapters consider the rate at which each reaction proceeds wherein its relative significance may be affected by many factors that may result in changes in the pattern of metabolism and differences in toxicity. This book discusses as well the physiological factors that affect metabolism, including age, sex, pregnancy, disease, and the nutritional state of the animal. The final chapter deals with the metabolism of some of the commonly used industrial chemicals. This book is a valuable resource for biochemists, chemists, toxicologists, pharmacologists, and pathologists.
