Neuropharmacology of Polyamines
Carter
0121616401
Jan 1994
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
Polyamines have had a hard time competing for research interest. As anyone who has studied polyamines knows, it is possible to observe some sort of polyamine effect in almost any assay system at high concentrations, and their generality of action has obviously been a deterrent to intensive research. Most of the research is concentrated in the field of cancer and relatively little polyamine research is neuroscience related, although in 1926 spermine (then known as neuridinc) was first isolated from brain tissue. Further research revealed the existence of uptake and release mechanisms for brain polyamines, as seen with other substances more commonly accepted as neurotransmitters. Polyamines were also found to play a regulatory role in cellular calcium homeostasis and to have a metabolism that is deregulated in response...


An Hour Before Daylight: Memoirs of a Rural Boyhood

Book Review
Born on October 1, 1924, Jimmy Carter grew up on a Georgia farm during the Great Depression. In An Hour Before Daylight, the former president tells the story of his rural boyhood, and paints a sensitive portrait of America before the civil rights movement.

Carter describes--in glorious, if sometimes gory, detail--growing up on a farm where everything was done by either hand or mule: plowing fields, "mopping" cotton to kill pests, cutting sugar cane, shaking peanuts, or processing pork. He also describes the joys of walking barefoot ("this habit alone helped to create a sense of intimacy with the earth"), taking naps with his father on the porch after lunch, and hunting with slingshots and boomerangs with his playmates--all of whom were black. Carter was in constant contact with his black neighbors; he worked...

The Real Science Behind the X-Files
Anne Simon
0684856182
Oct 2001
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
In The X-Files episode "The Erlenmeyer Flask," FBI agent Dana Scully shows some bacteria to microbiologist Anne Carpenter, who pronounces them extraterrestrial: containing different DNA nucleotides than those found in Earthly organisms. But like the hapless redshirts of Star Trek, scientists who uncover extraterrestrial evidence have shortened life expectancies. Indeed, Carpenter is soon snuffed out in a highly suspicious car crash. But the real scientist on whom she was based, University of Massachusetts virologist Anne Simon, remained as scientific advisor to the popular program: she is the "X-Pert."

In her book, Simon describes the scientific basis of various X-Files episodes, and writes about some of her behind-the-scenes work putting the Scully into Scully. Sometimes it gets a little difficult to keep track of...

Book Review
If you've always wanted the opportunity to pull up a chair and join a Bible study with former president Jimmy Carter, Living Faith is just the audiobook for you. For those of other--even non-religious--persuasions, Carter's rather flat but still engagingly homespun reading offers insight into the deeply personal faith that has motivated Carter throughout his adult life, shaping his decisions as a businessman-farmer, father and husband, diplomat and humanitarian, and president. Living Faith gives as much weight to Carter's remembrances about growing up and living in Plains, Georgia, as to the Iran hostage crisis, the infamous Playboy interview, and the other events of Carter's political life. Sprinkled throughout are Bible stories, quoted chapter and verse; Carter's mission seems not so much to evangelize listeners...


Mapping the Mind
Rita Carter

January 1998
Paperback
·
 
Book Review
In the last decades of the 20th century, scientists have come to believe that the human brain is almost completely modular. Every bit of the brain does something in particular, and surprisingly specific abilities, memories, and responses are in localized areas. Journalist Rita Carter has drawn a map of what is known (and speculated) about the mind in a heavily illustrated field guide to the human brain.

Carter and her scientific editor, neuropsychologist Christopher Frith, cover the state of the mind in a reasonably accurate, accessible way. They emphasize topics that are likely to be of some practical interest--such as Alzheimer's or attention deficit disorder--but not so much as to give a distorted picture of the field.

Perhaps the most interesting parts of the book are the sidebars written by a variety of leading...

From Booklist
Of course, there was an X Files comic book! Happily, it's now being collected in graphic-novel format. Here are five original creations and two TV-episode adaptations first published as special issues. The originals would have made good TV episodes, especially the two-parter in which paranoid neo-Nazi survivalists capture Mulder and Scully. The writing in the five originals corresponds to the TV-script adaptations, though the latter seem a bit wordier. Five hands share principal artist duties. Of Charles Adlard's four stories, "One Player Only," with its photo-incorporating opening pages (by Miran Kim), is most striking; the others look square in comparison, as does Gordon Purcell's "Thin Air." The two adaptations are the most intricately rendered, perhaps because Val Mayerick's "Squeeze" (a sublime creep-out) and...

Vanity Fair's Hollywood is like the ultimate movie party--and how inviting it all is! Flip through the thick, glossy pages and greet the greats of all ages. Lillian and Dorothy Gish share a spread with Blythe Danner and Gwyneth Paltrow. Ms. Deneuve, resplendent in scarlet, meet Mr. Valentino, in classy black and white. Claudette Colbert as Cleopatra, meet Liz Taylor as Cleopatra (and if it's not too catty, did you notice Claudette was better dressed?). The stunning photos are cleverly juxtaposed. Julia Roberts, posed naughtily in see-through undies in the water, is followed by a very properly attired Doris Day in a see-through skirt. Day holds six brightly dyed poodles by white leashes;...
