Experimental evolution demonstrates evolvability of preferential nutrient allocation to competing traits in response to chronic malnutrition

Journal of Evolutionary Biology

Aug 4, 2018

Roshan K Vijendravarma

Abstract

Investigating the evolutionary origins of disease vulnerability is an important aspect of evolutionary medicine that strongly complements our current understanding on proximate causes of disease. Life-history trade-offs mediated through evolutionary changes in resource allocation strate...read more

Interoception

Interoception refers to the sense of physiological state of the body. It can be both conscious and unconscious. Here is the latest research on this topic.

Organ Regeneration

Regeneration in humans is the regrowth of tissues or organs in response to injury or damage. Discover the latest research on organ neuroregeneration here.

Wound Healing

Wound healing is a complex biologic process that involves the integration of inflammation, mitosis, angiogenesis, synthesis, and remodeling of the extracellular matrix. Here is the latest research.

Innate Immunity and CNS

Innate immune responses in the CNS are carried out by microglia and astrocytes. Here is the latest research on mechanisms underlying innate immunity in the CNS and its impact on neurophysiology.

Neuroregeneration

Neuroregeneration is the growth or repair of neural cells and tissues following damage or injury. Discover the latest research on neuroregeneration here.
