that diseased tissue may in fact produce wavepatterns that are dramatically different from the waves produced byhealthy tissue. "We have seen very rapid local oscillations in the calciumions of epileptic cells, which may correspond to a very noisy f...

that kits made with soybean peroxidase should last unrefrigerated for at least a year. Such kits will be very useful in places such as China, Africa and Central America, he says. Vierling, director of the Genetics Laboratory for the ICIA, started exp...
Couch Potatoes, Not French Fries, May Be To Blame For Obesity
...is a confoundingly complex one. At most, the study suggests
that the types of food one eats may not matter as much as the amount of calories consumed or the amount of exercise. "Fast-food restaurants may be to blame in some way for the nation's weight problems, but in general there is little evidence of that,...
Resistance To Leptin Contributes To Obesity

that lean animalsincrease their production of leptin to return their weight to the setpoint," explains first author Jeffrey L. Halaas, B.S., biomedical fellow atRockefeller. "Also, leptin acts to blunt the reduction in energy use thattypically follo...
