The Biology and Health Website EurekaMag.com publishes insights into all areas of the life and health sciences including biology, agriculture, horticulture, forestry, geography, environment and health. Drawing from this pool of scientific disciplines, it publishes articles, reviews and insights on biological and health topics including those which have recently attained attention. While the Biology and Health Sciences Research Category contains over 36 million references, most of the reviews are included in the Biology and Health Sciences Keyword Category, the Biology and Health Sciences Keyphrase Category and in the Biology and Health Sciences Reviews Category of the online science magazine. All content is now available on a user-friendly and fast Mobile m.EurekaMag.com Website.
The EurekaMag.com review of the Digestive System covers the digestive tract which consists of a series of hollow organs joined in a long, twisting tube from the mouth to the anus, and other organs that help the body break down and absorb food. Organs that make up the digestive tract are the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, and anus. In the mouth, stomach, and small intestine, the lining (mucosa) contains tiny glands that produce juices to help digest food. The EurekaMag.com insight into the Digestive System presents a study of patients with acrodermatitis enteropathica. As the digestive system normally disassociates micelles, such patients should have access to free zinc-binding ligand in bovine milk as well. It also covers a study on reduction in digestive system CBF after direct inoculation of the intestine with influenzavirus. Viral antigen was detected in the epithelial cells of duck colon, but not in mouse intestines. Comb CBF increase was larger than in wattles while CBF in upper respiratory tract increased proportionally to increment in respiratory frequency. Digestive system CBF was reduced by hyperthermia and this effect was pronounced in the anterior organs and decreased along the tract.
EurekaMag.com presents a scientific review of the Nervous System which is an organ system containing a network of specialized cells called neurons that coordinate the actions of animals and humans by transmitting signals between different parts of their bodies. The EurekaMag.com insight covers a Clotrimazole therapy which resulted in an increase in plasma free fatty acids during spinal cooling, which was mediated through the sympathetic nervous system. It also presents symptoms associated with lasiocarpine poisoning. Pulmonary lesions were not present in goats that survived the initial phase of the disease, but myelin had disappeared from large areas of the spinal cord and from small foci in the brain. Nodular accumulations of mononuclear cells and small perivascular cuffs were also present in the central nervous system. VLG resembles visna in the topographic distribution and myelinoclastic nature of its lesions. Clinical signs are first noticed at 8-24 months of age and progress from slight ataxia to recumbency over a period of 1-2 years. Lesions are microscopic and restricted to the white matter of the central nervous system.
The EurekaMag.com insight into Photosynthesis covers the chemical process in plants, algae, and many bacteria that converts carbon-dioxide into organic compounds, especially sugars, using the energy from sunlight. The insight presents results of studies on 14CO2 fixation showing that silicone emulsions inhibit photosynthesis in beans and peas. In peas frequent applications of silicone emulsions throughout the life cycle stimulated overall growth and yield. The insight also covers studies on photosynthetic rates of plants including A. saccharum, Q. rubra, Q. alba, and Q. macrocarpa. Total net assimilation per day was significantly greater in A. saccharum than in Q. rubra or Q. alba, and greater in Q. macrocarpa than in Q. rubra. Mean light compensation points, determined under canopy shade, increased from A. saccharum, Q. macrocarpa, and Q. rubra to Q. alba. Total net assimilation per day, however, was not significantly different between Q. rubra, Q. alba and A. saccharum, but significantly greater in Q. macrocarpa than in Q. alba and A. saccharum.
The Science Magazine EurekaMag.com was launched in November 1998 as the online version of the French science magazine "Eurêka - Le magazine des sciences" published since 1995. During the past decade, it has emerged as a comprehensive aggregator of information on biology, on the applied life sciences agriculture, horticulture and forestry, on the earth sciences, on the environmental sciences, and on the health sciences.
