By Lubo Zhang,Charles A. Ducsay

To have fun the guts for Perinatal Biology’s fortieth Anniversary, an illustrious staff accumulated at Loma Linda collage in February 2013. That amassing of specialists and this quantity of the court cases are a tribute to the founding father of the heart, Lawrence D. Longo, M.D. those chapters current contributions from people who not directly or one other have been stimulated by way of Dr. Longo. protecting a variety of subject matters, and illustrating the range of pondering and medical pursuits, those lawsuits deal with easy technological know-how via to scientific difficulties within the developmental programming of overall healthiness and illness.

The Neural Crest in Development and Evolution

A dialogue of the neural crest and neural crest cells, facing their discovery, their embryological and evolutionary origins, their mobile derivatives - in either agnathan and jawed vertebrates or gnathostomes - and the large subject matters of migration and differentiation in basic improvement. The ebook additionally considers what is going incorrect while improvement is misdirected through mutations, or through publicity of embryos to exogenous brokers reminiscent of medicinal drugs, alcohol, or extra diet A, and comprises discussions of tumours and syndromes and beginning defects related to neural crest cells.

Evolving Pathways: Key Themes in Evolutionary Developmental Biology

Evolutionary developmental biology, or 'evo-devo', is the learn of the connection among evolution and improvement. Dealing particularly with the generative mechanisms of organismal shape, evo-devo is going directly to the center of the developmental foundation of version, the uncooked fabric on which usual choice (and random waft) can paintings.

Biology of Aging

Biology of getting older provides the organic rules that experience resulted in a brand new realizing of the motives of getting older and describes how those simple rules aid one to appreciate the human event of organic getting older, sturdiness, and age-related illness. meant for undergraduate biology scholars, it describes how the speed of organic getting older is measured; explores the mechanisms underlying mobile getting older; discusses the genetic pathways that have an effect on sturdiness in a number of organisms; outlines the traditional age-related alterations and the useful decline that happens in physiological platforms over the lifespan; and considers the consequences of modulating the speed of getting older and sturdiness.

The Social Origins of Language (Duke Institute for Brain Sciences Series)
