The Stroop effect has been a key to the assay of selective attention since the time of the epoch-making study by J.R. Stroop almost a century ago. However, recent work based on computational modeling and recording of brain activations ignored the primary meaning of the Stroop effect as a measure of selectivity-with the Stroop test losing its raison...

We present a novelty optoelectronic delay double-cross-feedback (OD-DCF) scheme to control two chaotic lasers based on coupled lasers. We design out the OD-DCF technical solution to convert two lights from two lasers into two photocurrents by two photo-detectors, and then the delay photocurrents are cross-fed back to each other’s lasers respectivel...

Background Asthma is a significant health issue in primary care. We examined the journeys of patients with asthma exacerbations requiring urgent therapy at a primary care clinic in Singapore. Methods Face-to-face semi-structured interviews were conducted with patients who received urgent therapy for asthma exacerbation at a primary care clinic. Dat...
Affect theory raises greater awareness of non-representational forces in social life that can shape different levels of subjectivity in ways that may not be immediately known to the subjects. In outbreaks of mass hysteria when subjects are suddenly exposed to bizarre and extreme behaviors, the question of affect becomes a key to understanding how t...
Phage M13 remains viable in the bird's intestine if inoculated with E. coli ER2738. Bacteriophage M13 does not damage the chicken gut. Phage M13 remains in the gut without leading to a humoral response up to 42 days. Supplementary Information The online version contains supplementary material available at 10.1186/s13568-022-01407-9.
Theory in biosciences = Theorie in den Biowissenschaften
The main thesis developed in this article is that the key feature of biological life is the a biological process can control and regulate other processes, and it maintains that ability over time. This control can happen hierarchically and/or reciprocally, and it takes place in three-dimensional space. This implies that the information that a biolog...

Background In the context of life-threatening illness, loss of control is argued as a source of suffering and loss of perceived dignity, whereas having control over the dying process has been seen as a way of maintaining personal independence. Little is known about the meaning of control from the patients’ perspectives. Thus, the aim of this study ...

Organization figures centrally in the understanding of biological systems advanced by both new mechanists and proponents of the autonomy framework. The new mechanists focus on how components of mechanisms are organized to produce a phenomenon and emphasize productive continuity between these components. The autonomy framework focuses on how the com...

Parasites cause losses in animal production. Parasite infection in ruminants has been estimated to be a major problem causing more than 3 billion USD per year, from which 60% corresponds to the sheep industry. Treatment is based on the use of synthetic anthelmintics; however, repeated application or under dosage have resulted in the selection of ne...
