Dynamic studies through control of relaxation in NMR spectroscopy
Salvi, Nicola
Cham : Springer, [2014]
Theoretical principles -- Analytical models for relaxation dispersion experiments -- Experimental methods -- Experimental results.

"Nicola Salvi's thesis offers a remarkably cogent view of highly sophisticated NMR methods. Salvi developed these methods in order to characterize the amplitudes and frequency ranges of local motions in biomolecules such as proteins. These local motions play an essential role since they can explain many of the remarkable properties of proteins and enable them to carry out all sorts of vital functions, from enzymatic catalysis to intermolecular recognition and signalling in cells. Salvi's work has led to numerous publications in high-impact journals."--Page 4 of cover.

The idiot brain : a neuroscientist explains what your head is really up to
Burnett, Dean
Toronto, Ontario, Canada : HarperCollins Publishers Ltd, 2016
Dean Burnett celebrates the downright laughable things our minds do to us, as well as exposing the fact that people are often way off in their thinking about how the brain works. For example, did you know that: your memory is egotistical? Conspiracy theories and superstitions stem from your brain's insistence that the world isn't random? Dean Burnett's unpredictable and entertaining first book explores the unexpected side of everyday life, highlighting where conventional thinking is wrong and how our brains trip us up at every turn. This is lucid, funny and smart: in short, the best kind of popular science.

Aristotle on female animals : a study of the generation of animals
Connell, Sophia M
Cambridge, United Kingdom : Cambridge University Press, 2016
Introduction -- Part I. Methodology in the Study of Aristotle on Female Animals: 1. Feminism, sexism and Aristotle -- 2. Consistency in the Generation of Animals -- Part II. Re-assessing the Generative Role of the Female Animal in Aristotle: 3. Menstrual blood and female semen -- 4. Matter -- Part III. Re-assessing the Generative Role of the Male Animal in Aristotle: 5. The male as efficient and formal cause of generation -- 6. Interpretations of Aristotle on the male role -- Part IV. Generation in Lower Animals and Particular Instances: 7. Generation in lower animals -- 8. Aristotle on sexual differentiation -- 9. Aristotle on heredity -- 10. Teleology and necessity in the Generation of Animals -- Conclusion.

"Aristotle's account of female nature has received mostly negative treatment, emphasising what he says females cannot do. Building on recent research, this book comprehensively revises such readings, setting out the complex and positive role played by the female in Aristotle's thought with a particular focus on the longest surviving treatise on reproduction in the ancient corpus, the Generation of Animals. It provides new interpretations of the nature of Aristotle's sexism, his theory of male and female interaction in generation, and his account of inherited features. It also discusses a range of more general issues which can and should be re-examined in light of Aristotle's account of female animals: his methodology, hylomorphism, teleology and psychology. Aristotle on Female Animals will be valuable to all those interested in Aristotle's philosophy and the history of gender"--
