The results aim to clarify the degradation mechanism in biological systems by associating these states with ultrastructural dynamic fluctuations at nanoscale and showing that myelin in its out-of-equilibrium functional state fluctuates point-to-point between different conformations showing a correlated disorder described by a Levy distribution.

The results highlight that the intrinsically disordered Myelin Basic Protein (MBP) allows to preserve the myelin structure following both the small correlated fluctuations in physiological state and the large disordered fluctuations in degraded conditions, where the myelinated functionality is close to being lost and the MBP remains the single active protein.

Scanning micro X-ray Diffraction (S{\mu}XRD), which is a unique non-invasive probe of both k-space and real space allowing to visualize statistical fluctuations of myelin order with high spatial resolution in real space, is used to examine the myelin sheath in the sciatic nerve of Xenopus laevis.

This work investigated the fluctuation of the myelin supramolecular assembly by measuring the spatial distribution of orientation fluctuations of axons in a Xenopus Laevis sciatic nerve associated with nerve functionality and found that the Levy flight distribution was missing in the aged nerve prepared in an unfresh state.

This review summarizes some of the most interesting, recently reported phenomena related to dynamic self-organization and coherency at various complexity levels in living matter, demonstrating the widespread applications of these concepts in many modern fields of biological and healthcare research.
This paper reviews the use of the theory of scale relativity and fractal space-time as a tool particularly well adapted to the possible development of a future genuine systems theoretical biology and emphasizes the concept of quantum-type potentials.

It is shown that molecules taking part in biochemical processes from small molecules to proteins are critical quantum mechanically and the findings point to the existence of a universal mechanism of charge transport in living matter.

This work describes a new hypothesis for plant leaf veination, whereby an endogenous electric field forming as a result of a coherent Frohlich process, and corresponding to an EM resonant mode of the developing leaf structure, is capable of instigating leaf vascularisation.
Biological systems are expected to have a branch of longitudinal electric modes in a frequency region between 10l1 and 10l2 sec-l. They are based on the dipolar properties of cell membranes; of
