Dissecting the Meanings of "Physiology" to Assess the Vitality of the Discipline.

It is contended that physiology no longer encompasses all biological disciplines and may no longer be the only synoptic biological science, but far from indicating a sterility of this discipline, this situation should drive physiology to re-invent its relationship with these other biological domains.



Physiology without borders 2.

IUPS speaks for the international community of physiological scientists, with adhering member societies, associations, and academies from over 50 countries worldwide. Its council has members drawn

Physiologists without borders.

Once upon a time, a handful of North American physiologists decided to create a social scientific network and called it the American Physiological Society (APS), and it is found that APS has grown to ∼10,500 members, over a dozen research and review journals, and more.

Central Dogma of Molecular Biology

The central dogma of molecular biology deals with the detailed residue-by-residue transfer of sequential information. It states that such information cannot be transferred from protein to either

Evolution: A View from the 21st Century

The key goal of this book is to demonstrate that a central premise of Darwinian evolution is incorrect and to spell out the implications of that conclusion for evolutionary theory.

Evolution in Four Dimensions

The subtitle of the book is Genetic, Epigenetic, Behavioral, and Symbolic Variation in the History of Life; thus, the four dimensions of the title. ‘‘The challenge [this book] offers is not to

Evolution, the Extended Synthesis

In the six decades since the publication of Julian Huxley's Evolution: The Modern Synthesis, the spectacular empirical advances in the biological sciences have been accompanied by equally significant

Neo‐Darwinism, the Modern Synthesis and selfish genes: are they of use in physiology?

This article argues that the gene‐centric interpretations of evolution, and more particularly the selfish gene expression of those interpretations, form barriers to the integration of physiological

Evolution: The Modern Synthesis

This definitive edition brings one of the most important and successful scientific books of the twentieth century back into print and includes the entire text of the 1942 edition, Huxley's introduction to the 1963 second edition (which demonstrates his continuing command of the field), and the introduction tothe 1974 third edition, written by nine experts from different areas of evolutionary biology.

Epigenetic programming by maternal behavior

It is shown that an epigenomic state of a gene can be established through behavioral programming, and it is potentially reversible, suggesting a causal relation among epigenomicState, GR expression and the maternal effect on stress responses in the offspring.
