He considered that it was a new approach and never before raised in the exercise of neurology, so he did not hesitate to apply it to patients with more severe epilepsy. The innovation of the Canadian neurosurgeon was to use electrical impulses in several areas of the brain and, based on the testimony of the conscious patient, to know which areas were affected and reduce the risks during surgery. This practice, known as Montreal Procedure, also allowed compiling maps of the sensory and motor cortex of the brain, which are those that present the connections of the cortex to the various limbs and organs of the body and that continue to be used…

With this failure, the government was left with just over an hour (until 05.00 GMT) to find a way out of the crisis. This painting leaves President Donald Trump before the prospect of a heavy political defeat.

Google Honored The Scientist of Indian Origin Har Gobind Khorana

DNA is in charge of the transmission of hereditary data and monitor data from guardians to kids with a system to transmit it. The genetic code is the set of rules that defines how a sequence of nucleotides in the RNA is translated into an amino acid sequence in a protein. In a human organism there are between 80,000 and 90,000 different proteins . The synthesis of each of these is commanded by a gene. Proteins are made up of a chain of smaller units called amino acids. Genes are common to all living beings and define the relationship between each sequence of three nucleotides, called a codon, and each amino acid. Har Gobind Khorana was one of the first to see how the component of transmission and translating of the data of qualities worked and even accomplished the assignment of synthetically explaining one from its fundamental antecedents. Yet, that is not all, the researcher kept taking a shot at the DNA and RNA of E. Coli, a…
