How Quantum Activism Can Save Civilization By Amit Goswami, PhD

Quantum physics is the most successful paradigm of physics ever discovered. All scientists follow it in their practice of science because they have to in order to make predictions.

what is the Molecular Signature of Mind–Body interventions? A Systematic Review of Gene expression Changes induced by Meditation and Related Practices

There is considerable evidence for the effectiveness of mind–body interventions (MBIs) in improving mental and physical health, but the molecular mechanisms of these bene ts remain poorly understood.

Maternal Factors that Induce Epigenetic Changes Contribute to Neurological Disorders in Offspring

Avijit Banik 1, Deepika Kandilya 1, Seshadri Ramya 1, Walter Stünkel 2, Yap Seng Chong 3 and S. Thameem Dheen   It is well established that the regulation of epigenetic factors, including chromatic reorganization, histone modifications, DNA methylation, and miRNA regulation, is critical for the normal development and functioning of the human brain. There are… Continua a leggere Maternal Factors that Induce Epigenetic Changes Contribute to Neurological Disorders in Offspring

Towards a systemic paradigm in carcinogenesis: linking epigenetics and genetics

di Ernesto Burgio • Lucia Migliore   Abstract For at least 30 years cancer has been defined as a genetic disease and explained by the so-called somatic mutation theory (SMT), which has dominated the carci- nogenesis field. Criticism of the SMT has recently greatly increased, although still not enough to force all SMT supporters to… Continua a leggere Towards a systemic paradigm in carcinogenesis: linking epigenetics and genetics

Emergence of qualia from brain activity or from an interaction of protoconsciousness with the brain: which one is the weirder? Available evidence and a research agenda

di Patrizio Tressoldi , Enrico Facco , Daniela LucangeliThis contribution to the science of consciousness aims at comparing how two different theories can explain the emergence of different qualia experiences: meta-awareness, metacognition, the placebo effect, out-of-body experiences, cognitive therapy, meditation-induced brain changes, etc. The first theory postulates that qualia experiences derive from specific neural patterns,… Continua a leggere Emergence of qualia from brain activity or from an interaction of protoconsciousness with the brain: which one is the weirder?
