Effects of Mass Loss on Stellar Evolution: IAU Colloquium no. 59 Held in Miramare, Trieste, Italy, September 15–19, 1980

The IAU Colloquium No. fifty nine, "The results of mass loss on Stellar Evolution" was once hung on September 15-19, 1980 on the foreign Centre for Theoretical Physics, Miramare, Trieste (Italy), less than the auspices of the IAU govt Co~ mittee and the Italian nationwide Council of analysis. The making plans of this convention all started years in the past du­ ring the IAU Symposium No.

Cerebral Cortex: Neurodegenerative and Age-Related Changes in Structure and Function of Cerebral Cortex

This quantity of Cerebral Cortex is devoted to Sir John Eccles, who used to be an lively member of the advisory board for the sequence until eventually his dying in may possibly 1997. His enter as to what themes may be lined in destiny volumes of this sequence can be sorely overlooked. the current quantity is anxious with neurodegenerative issues and age­ similar alterations within the constitution and serve as of the cerebral cortex, a subject matter that has attracted expanding curiosity as durability and the variety of elderly contributors within the inhabitants bring up.

Alcoholism and Drug Dependence: A Multidisciplinary Approach

It truly is for me, as President of the Merseyside Lancashire & Cheshire Council on Alcoholism, a sign privilege to put in writing a short foreword to those lawsuits of the 3rd overseas convention on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. in the course of the week specialists, from internationally, in all these disciplines that have a contribution to make to the answer of the issues of alcoholism and drug dependence, surveyed contemporary advances in our wisdom of the aetiology, epidemiology, early popularity, administration, and the social and commercial implications of those dual scourges of the modern scene.

The best way to build on your experience is to note the camera settings, lighting, subject appearance, etc. when you take each photograph and to record this information when you record the notes on the subject location and frame number; checking this information against final photograph quality later will improve your knowledge of which settings give the best results for particular lighting conditions and subject types. Although photographs are intended to communicate specific scientific information, their visual impact will be enhanced if some attention is given to artistic aspects of their composition.
