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 overseas Centre for Theoretical Physics, Miramare, Trieste (Italy), below the auspices of the IAU govt Co~ mittee and the Italian nationwide Council of study. The making plans of this convention begun 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 was once an lively member of the advisory board for the sequence till his loss of life in may perhaps 1997. His enter as to what subject matters can be coated in destiny volumes of this sequence might be sorely ignored. the current quantity is anxious with neurodegenerative problems and age­ comparable adjustments within the constitution and serve as of the cerebral cortex, a subject that has attracted expanding curiosity as durability and the variety of elderly contributors within the inhabitants raise.

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 write down a quick foreword to those lawsuits of the 3rd foreign convention on Alcoholism and Drug Dependence. throughout 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 fresh advances in our wisdom of the aetiology, epidemiology, early attractiveness, administration, and the social and commercial implications of those dual scourges of the modern scene.

Sensitized) lymphocytes, such as lymphokine and interferon, or by serum proteins, for example immunoglobulins and complement components. Stimulatory substances can also lead to activation of mononuclear phagocytes in vitro (0gmundsd6ttir & Weir 1980). All this means that the cells in an inflammatory exudate can be quite heterogeneous, and should therefore be characterized cautiously. Table 1 offers a guideline for their identification. To indicate the degree of heterogeneity of the population of cells in the exudate, however, it is essential to report not only qualitative but also quantitative data for each characteristic.
