Structure and function of the esophageal mucosa

Structure and function go hand-in-hand amongst the morphology, morphometry, biomechanics and secretory potential within the alimentary tract mucosa, submucosa and muscularis propria.  Structure must evolve first during the development of fetus and function follows closely and progressively

Cannabis reverses ageing processes in the brain

Researchers at the University of Bonn restore the memory performance of Methuselah mice to a juvenile stage. Memory performance decreases with increasing age. Cannabis can reverse these ageing processes in the brain. This was shown in mice

Green perspective in sample preparation prior to chromatographic analysis

Sample preparation is beyond any doubt the most demanding and at the same time the most challenging step of the analytical procedure, thus affecting the final performance of the whole analytical process in the analytical laboratory. Due
