By Murugappan Muthukumar (auth.), Günter Reiter, Gert R. Strobl (eds.)

In the context of polymer crystallization there are a number of nonetheless open and infrequently controversially debated questions. the current quantity addresses concerns comparable to

  • novel basic perspectives and ideas which aid to develop our realizing of polymer crystallisation
  • nucleation phenomena
  • long dwelling soften buildings affecting crystallization
  • confinement results on crystallization
  • crystallization in flowing melts
  • fluid mobility regulations as a result of crystallites
  • the position of mesophases within the crystal formation

and provides new rules in a hooked up and obtainable method. The goal is hence not just to supply a precis of the current cutting-edge to all lively works yet to supply an access element to newcomer and graduate scholars coming into the field.

Functional Selectivity of G Protein-Coupled Receptor Ligands: New Opportunities for Drug Discovery

Sensible selectivity refers back to the skill of other ligands performing at one receptor subtype to turn on a number of signaling pathways in specific mixtures; that's, one drug may be an agonist at pathway A and an antagonist or partial agonist at pathway B, and one other drug may have the opposite profile.

Reciprocally, anthropological studies probe the range of cultural practices, meanings, and ecologies that shape both contexts and experiences. These key intellectual insights have transformed how we think about development, about culture, and about biology in ways also relevant to policy, prevention, and treatment. Essentially, we have learned that human nature is innately nurtured: Without the social world and its animating culture, we cannot become human. Although how we depend on nurturance is peculiar to humans, such reliance turns out to be widespread among animals.

A second door that Boas opened in 1911 led to research on the mental development of children under particular environmental conditions. Here we see him attempting to find a basis in the biology of the nervous system for children’s psychological development – their acquisition of a “mental makeup” influenced by the environmental setting in which they grow up. This is of course the more familiar Boas, the teacher of Sapir, Mead, and Benedict, who took his axiom of the plasticity of mental development and built on it the field of “culture and personality studies,” with its emphatic developmental perspective, from the 1920s onwards.

Bogin has studied Mayan peoples in Guatemala and the United States, showing greater height for the children of immigrants to the United States. Like Boas, he points out that in typological studies, the Mayans have been called “the pygmies of the New World,” but as migrants, their increase in stature reveals a plasticity contradicting the implicit prediction of fixity. Bogin and Loucky (1997) discuss the probable causes of these differences in diet, water supply, and other public health parameters known to affect growth, and they set the quantitative findings in a contextual analysis of the political economy of Mayan peasants at home and abroad.
