Forty years ago, Detlev Ganten et al. postulated the existence of a tissue RAS. In these forty years, he kept developing the knowledge of these systems either directly or by training or attracting the interest of many researchers. Through the present review, we try to highlight recent advancements that… CONTINUE READING
