There are major shifts underway in understanding the physiological mechanisms that control muscle contraction, a field that has been the focus of intense research for centuries.

Word of the Day
  • The act of burning, scorching, or heating to dryness; the state or being thus heated or dried.
  • In medicine, cauterization.
The word 'adustion' comes from the Latin 'adustio', 'burning'.
