CORPUL NOSTRU SE VINDECA SINGUR

Originally posted on Dr. Traian Stefan Grozescu's personal blog:
“Nicio terapie nu vindecă. Este timpul ca lumea să ştie asta. Terapia facilitează procesul de vindecare. Procesul de vindecare este mult mai mult decât o atingere a unui terapeut pe corpul unui pacient. Suntem atât de bine făcuţi, încât corpul nostru se vindecă singur. Nu…

Libertate şi condiţionare genetică în persoana umană

Diac. dr. Adrian Sorin Mihalache     Duminică, 27 octombrie 2013 În cuprinsul vieţii spirituale ve­dem, în toată splendoarea, pu­terea omului duhovnicesc asupra slăbiciunilor firii, asu­pra lumii căzute şi a ispitelor ei. Prin viaţa lor, sfinţii şi martirii, cuvioşii şi asceţii dau mărturie, peste veacuri, de puterea pe care orice om cu viaţă înduhovnicită o poate…

How to Grow a New Head

Cut most species of flatworm in half, and you end up with two flatworms. The front half will grow a new tail and, more impressively, the back half will grow a new head—complete with a fully functioning brain. But a few species of these worms mysteriously lack this ability, at least when it comes to…

The Neandertal genome

Introduction Recent advances in high-throughput DNA sequencing have provided initial glimpses of the nuclear genome of Neandertals as well as other ancient mammals including cave bears and mammoths. In the 7 May 2010 issue of Science, an international team of researchers presents the draft sequence of the Neandertal genome composed of over 3 billion nucleotides…

Sleep: The Ultimate Brainwasher?

17 October 2013 2:15 pm Scientists show that our brains clean themselves while we slumber Maiken Nedergaard/Jeff Iliff Brainwashing. When mice sleep, fluid-filled channels (pale blue) between neurons expand and flush out waste. Every night since humans first evolved, we have made what might be considered a baffling, dangerous mistake. Despite the once-prevalent threat of…

Scientific breakthroughs that were ‘accidents’

April 22, 2013     | Author: Freelance Writer Susan Borowski Probably the most important “accidental” discovery was penicillin, discovered in 1928 by Sir Alexander Fleming (Image: Wikipedia Commons, Public Domain) “There are no mistakes, only opportunities.” Although this is one of Tina Fey’s rules for improvisation, it can also apply to science. There are many inventions…

Scientia: The ever-changing periodic table

November 29, 2011     | Author: Freelance Writer Steven A. Edwards, Ph.D. Because of evolution, we expect biology to be an open-ended subject, but it seems that chemistry should be more constrained.  So how is it that, eleven years into the 21st century, we still don’t have a complete list of the elements?  The most recent…

Neurons in the Adult Brain still divide!

Neuroscience. 2nd edition. Generation of Neurons in the Adult Brain It has long been known that mature, differentiated neurons do not divide (see Chapter 22). It does not follow, however, that all the neurons that make up the adult brain are produced during embryonic development, even though this interpretation has generally been assumed. The merits…

Study reveals why the body clock is slow to adjust to time changes

New research in mice reveals why the body is so slow to recover from jet-lag and identifies a target for the development of drugs that could help us to adjust faster to changes in time zone. With funding from the Wellcome Trust and F. Hoffmann La Roche, researchers at the University of Oxford, University of…
