Away

I'm leaving town today for a week, so no more posting until I get back late next week.

Meanwhile, I'm going to take Mixing Memory's lead and ask for requests for biology-related posts (though not because I'm fed up with politics - just because I'd like to write more about science). My main area of knowledge is neuroscience but I'm happy to write about anything that I'm reasonably qualified to talk about. So just leave a comment or email me if you want me to write about, say, stem cells, or genetic engineering, or how neurons work, or anything else, and I'll get on it when I get back.

Andrew,

I wrote a post awhile back complaining about the odd dualism expressed by otherwise reliably materialistic thinkers (like Martin Gardener and Roger Penrose) whenever the question of artificial intelligence rears its fleshless head. That post is here:

I'd be very interested in your own thoughts (whether archived or new) on whether human neurological structures are themselves sufficient to explain human consciousness. And if so, whether you think the engineering of synthetic analogues to those structures is possible.

I suspect this subject will move from the geeky margins to the center of conversation in the decades ahead.

If you're still soliciting topics, how about a post on MMR vaccination and autism? From everything I've read, there is no link, merely anecdotal evidence, but I'd love your take on it.

Thanks!

Birth control and other drugs for women

Generic Alesse drug (Levonorgestrel) - ethinyl estradiol is a progestin (levonorgestrel) and estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) combination birth control pill used for the prevention of pregnancy. The ingredients of the medication work by preventing ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary) and causing changes in the mucus of the cervix which make it difficult for sperm to penetrate and for an egg to implant. This medication may also be taken to treat acne in women 14 years of age and older or to regulate the menstrual cycle. Order discount generic Alesse Levonorgestrel pharmacy online

Generic MIRCETTE drug (desogestrel/ethinyl estradiol and ethinyl estradiol) tablets has excellent cycle control as demonstrated by clinical trials. The regimen begins with 21 days of 20 mcg ethinyl estradiol and 150 mcg desogestrel. The last seven days in the cycle start with two days of placebo pills, followed by five days of 10 mcg ethinyl estradiol pills. Order discount generic Mircette pharmacy online

Generic Seasonale drug (Ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel, Jolessa) are hormones that affect the ovulatory and menstrual cycle of women. Ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel prevent ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary), therefore preventing the possibility of pregnancy. Seasonale may also inhibit pregnancy by causing the cervical mucous to thicken, which makes it harder for sperm to move toward the uterus, and reducing the likelihood of attachment of a fertilized egg to the uterus.

Generic YASMIN drug is the only OC with the novel, dual-property progestin, drospirenone the only progestin that has AntiMineralocorticoid and AntiAndrogenic* properties. Drospirenone represents a unique class of progestins with an entirely different molecular structure and activity profile than the currently available progestins. Drospirenone is an analogue of spironolactone. Order discount generic Yasmin pharmacy online.

Generic Estradiol drug is a hormone and is given to women who no longer produce the proper amount. It is used to reduce menopause symptoms (e.g., hot flashes), for brittle bones (osteoporosis), and treats certain cancers in both men and women. Order discount generic Estradiol pharmacy online

Generic Naprosyn drug (Naproxen) is used to relieve the pain, tenderness, inflammation (swelling), and stiffness caused by gout, arthritis, and other inflammatory conditions. It also is used to relieve other pain, including muscle and menstrual pain and pain after surgery, dental work, or childbirth. Order discount generic Naprosyn Naproxen pharmacy online

These are augmented with themes for software architects such as trusting your users and harnessing collective intelligence.
