Human Airway Mucus

Human Airway Mucus

April 13, 2022

To follow up on our recently published AIP manuscript “Physiology and Pathophysiology of Human Airway Mucus” (https://doi.org/10.1152/physrev.00004.2021), we were able to connect with senior author Dr. Richard Boucher.

 

In this podcast, Physiological Reviews Editorial Ken Adler and Dr. Boucher have an interesting conversation on pathogenesis and future therapies in lung and airway diseases.  They discuss everything from mucin genes to Cystic Fibrosis.

How close are we to the achieving the bioengineering of the Six-Million Dollar Man?

Advances in our understanding of brain function, along with the development of neural interfaces that allow for the monitoring and activation of neurons, have paved the way for brain machine interfaces (BMI), which harness neural signals to reanimate the limbs via electrical activation of the muscles, or to control extra-corporeal devices, thereby bypassing the muscles and senses altogether. BMIs consist of reading out motor intent from the neuronal responses monitored in motor regions of the brain and executing intended movements using bionic limbs, reanimated limbs, or exoskeletons. BMIs also allow for the restoration of the sense of touch by electrically activating neurons in somatosensory regions of the brain, thereby evoking vivid tactile sensations and conveying feedback about object interactions. In this podcast associate editor Jeff Diamond is joined by authors Chethan Pandarinath and Sliman Bensmaia as they discuss " The Science and Engineering behind sensitized brain-controlled bionic hands."

The Physiological Control of Eating

The Physiological Control of Eating

November 4, 2021

Deputy Editor Dr. Willis Samson takes a deep dive into the complex universe that control the behavior and mechanisms of eating.  He is joined by the authors of our recent published review "The Physiological Control of Eating: Signals, Neurons, and Networks" by Alan G. Watts, Scott E Kanoski, Graciela Sanchez-Watts and Wolfgang Langhans. Learn about the advances of this complicated process and the possible therapeutics for the future.
