9780199673537: Life Unfolding: How the human body creates itself
Review:

follows the progress of scientific ideas in the charged years surrounding the Reform Bill of 1832. More than anything, however, it is about the way ideas were exchanged. The result is a compelling work of book history that sheds as much light on the intricacies of the nineteenth-century publishing world as it does on geology or astronomy, and the dual project at the heart of ( Ushashi Dasgupta, Times Literary Supplement)

is one of its many strengths.

Review:

an astonishingly lucid and captivating account of the strange construction processes that lead from a single cell to a fully formed body ( TLS, Asif A. Ghazanfar)

A demanding but wonder-filled account of the simple interactions that create complex structures. ( New Scientist)

Descripción Oxford University Press, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. 238 x 166 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. Where did I come from? Why do I have two arms but just one head? How is my left leg the same size as my right one? Why are the fingerprints of identical twins not identical? How did my brain learn to learn? Why must I die? Questions like these remain biology s deepest and most ancient challenges. They force us to confront a fundamental biological problem: how can something as large and complex as a human body organize itself from the simplicity of a fertilized egg? A convergence of ideas from embryology, genetics, physics, networks, and control theory has begun to provide real answers. Based on the central principle of adaptive self-organization , it explains how the interactions of many cells, and of the tiny molecular machines that run them, can organize tissue structures vastly larger than themselves, correcting errors as they go along and creating new layers of complexity where there were none before. Life Unfolding tells the story of human development from egg to adult, from this perspective, showing how our whole understanding of how we come to be has been transformed in recent years. Highlighting how embryological knowledge is being used to understand why bodies age and fail, Jamie A. Davies explores the profound and fascinating impacts of our newfound knowledge.
