biologically-based cause and effect

Hypothesis free pseudoscience vs facts (1)

Old Earth Creationist (OEC) Peter Berean, thinks I should change the claims in my model of energy-dependent biophysically constrained RNA-mediate protein folding chemistry. He does not like the fact that my model explains all pathology in the context of virus-driven energy theft. If viral latency is not nutrient energy-dependent and controlled by the physiology of reproduction in species from bacteria to humans, I will change my claims. If someone explains what is wrong with my model, I will try to…

Chromatin: The structure of DNA

Update on Inflammation and Degenerative Brain Disease Excerpt: While mapping connections of neurons has become the holy grail of current neuroscience, it is clear that communication of neurons with many other types cells is, also, vitally important to every aspect of brain function. My comment: Understanding dementia was placed into the context of understanding how virus-driven energy theft alters the de novo creation of olfactory receptor genes and causes the loss of function that is linked to all pathology via…

Displays of ecological adaptation (2)

On 9/12/16 Philip Qua wrote I have not verified that all of his papers are peer review, but I do believe that some of them are. It is going to take some time and reading of James Kohl papers before I am even willing to venture whether they have merit or not. But on a first glance basis, what I think James is positing here is the causal-effect that drives evolution is more an energy based availability than a random…

RNA methylation (2)

Conditioning as an adjunct in the pharmacotherapy of lupus erythematosus Several studies have provided evidence suggesting that “placebo effects” represent conditioning phenomena and that learning processes influence the response to placebo medication. This case report describes an adolescent with severe lupus erythematosus who received cyclophosphamide (CY) paired with taste (cod liver oil) and smell (rose perfume) as conditioned stimuli. The regimen was based on conditioning experiments with animals who had lupuslike autoimmune disease. After the initial pairings, the taste alone…

The Mind’s Eyes (revisited)

Author’s copy: The Mind’s Eyes: Human pheromones, neuroscience, and male sexual preferences (2007) Abstract: The across-species genetic conservation of intercellular and extracellular chemical communication enables unicellular and multicellular organisms to functionally distinguish between self and non-self.  Non-self olfactory/pheromonal input from the social environment elicits a vertebrate neuroendocrine response.  The organization and activation of this neuroendocrine response modulates the concurrent maturation of the mammalian neuroendocrine system, the reproductive system, and the central nervous system during the development of sexual preferences that…
