Abstract: Plant Methods is a new journal for plant biologists, specialising in the rapid publication of peer-reviewed articles with a focus on technological innovation in the plant sciences. The aim of Plant Methods is to stimulate the development and adoption of new and improved techniques and research tools in plant biology. We hope to promote more consistent standards in the plant sciences, and make readily accessible laboratory and computer-based research tools available to the whole community. T (more)
Science, technique, technology: passages between matter and knowledge in imperial Chinese agriculture.
Source: Br J Hist Sci;41(150 Pt 3): 319-44, 2008 Sep.
Abstract: Many historians today prefer to speak of knowledge and practice rather than science and technology. Here I argue for the value of reinstating the terms science, techniques and technology as tools for a more precise analysis of governmentality and the workings of power. My tactic is to use these three categories and their articulations to highlight flows between matter and ideas in the production and reproduction of knowledge. In any society, agriculture offers a wonderfully rich case of how (more)

Abstract: BACKGROUND: In this paper, mental health is discussed in the context of the system of innovation in health care. A set of mental illnesses is investigated in order to broaden our understanding of how they can be connected to the health innovation system. METHODS: Two country typologies are investigated. The first typology uses the Grade of Membership approach to group 112 countries with similar policies, programs, legislation, treatment and mental health funding methods for 2001. The second (more)

Abstract: BACKGROUND: The biological, chemical, behavioral and physical sciences provide the fuel for innovation, discovery and technology that continuously improves the quality of the human condition. Computer power derived from the dramatic breakthroughs of the digital revolution has made extraordinary computational capacity available for diagnostic imaging, bioinformatics (the science of information) and numerous aspects of how we practice dentistry in the 21st century. OVERVIEW: The biological re (more)

Abstract: In the 15th century, brain illustration began to change from a schematic system that involved scant objective rendering of the brain, to accurate depictions based on anatomical dissections that demanded significant artistic talent. Notable examples of this innovation are the drawings of Leonardo da Vinci (1498-1504), Andreas Vesalius' association with the bottega of Titian to produce the drawings of Vesalius' De humani corporis fabrica (1543), and Christopher Wren's illustrations for Thomas (more)

Abstract: In this article, we explore the role of science and technology as a force shaping the dental curriculum throughout history. This force is examined from a historical perspective, ranging from 1840 at the Baltimore College of Dentistry to 2007. We divide the history of dental education into two eras: the germ theory era from 1840 to 1953, and the genomic theory era from 1953 to 2007. We have chosen 1953 as the beginning of the genomic era as this is the year of publication of the structure of (more)

Training substance abuse treatment organizations to adopt evidence-based practices: the Addiction Technology Transfer Center of New England Science to Service Laboratory.
Source: J Subst Abuse Treat;34(3): 293-301, 2008 Apr.
Abstract: Underutilization of evidence-based treatments for substance abuse represents a longstanding problem for the field and the public health of our nation. Those who would most benefit from research advances (community treatment agencies and the clients they serve) have historically been the least likely to be exposed to innovative evidence-based methods for substance abuse treatment. To help address this gap, the Addiction Technology Transfer Center of New England (ATTC-NE), located at Brown Un (more)

Abstract: Stem cell technology has been recognized as an emerging technology that could transform current supportive approach toward curing many chronic disorders and degenerative conditions. Regenerative medicine is the promising area of medical practice in the coming decade. However, stem cell technology also brings up controversial issues from the bioethical perspective such as the destruction of human embryos to derive embryonic stem cells or putting the egg donors at risk when retrieving oocytes (more)
