  • Stub Biomechanics [r]: The study of the mechanics of biological systems [e]
  • Stub Allometry [r]: The study of scaling effects in biology. [e]
  • Developed Article Medicine [r]: The study of health and disease of the human body. [e]
  • Stub Health [r]: The default state of an organism under optimal conditions, a state characterized by the absence of disease and by the slowest natural rate of senescing. [e]
  • Stub Disease [r]: A condition of the body in which one or more of its components fail to operate properly, resulting in disability, pain or other forms of suffering, or behavioral aberrations. [e]
  • Neonatology [r]: The subfield of health sciences concerned with infants. [e]
  • Developing Article Pediatrics [r]: Branch of medicine that deals with the medical care of infants, children, adolescents, and the treatment of their diseases. [e]
  • Stub Psychiatry [r]: The subfield of health sciences concerned with mental disorders. [e]
  • Developing Article Neurology [r]: The medical specialty concerned with evaluating the nervous system and the other system that it affects, and the treatment of nervous system disorders. [e]
  • Developing Article Lissencephaly [r]: Condition in which the brain surface is smooth, as opposed to gyrified. Normal in many mammals and transient in human fetal development but a disorder in humans born with it. [e]
  • Myelination [r]: The process by which specialized glial cells ensheath the axons of nerve cells with myelin. [e]
  • Axon [r]: The part of a nerve cell, along which action potentials travel to synapses linking them to neighbouring cells. [e]
  • Stub Neuron [r]: An excitable cell that is specialized to conduct nerve impulses. [e]
  • Stub Myelin [r]: The proteinaceous material constituting most of the insulating sheath that surrounds the axons of nerve cells. [e]
  • Developmental biomechanics [r]: The study of the physical forces and energies involved in the patterning of a developing organism. [e]
  • Stub Neuronal migration [r]: The process by which nerve cells travel from the place of their last cell division to their final position in the brain. [e]
  • Developing Article Schizophrenia [r]: A mental disorder characterized by impaired perception of the individual's environment. [e]
  • Developing Article Autism [r]: Developmental disability that results from a disorder of the human central nervous system. [e]
  • Child development [r]: The ensemble of processes that transform an infant into an adolescent. [e]
  • Infant [r]: A child between 1 and 23 months of age. [e]
  • Developing Article Adolescent [r]: Individual from the onset of puberty to maturity. [e]
  • Neoteny [r]: The retardation of some aspects of the development of an organism relative to sexual maturation. [e]
  • Tensegrity [r]: The structural integrity achieved by balanced pulling and pushing forces in biological structures or architecture; the word is a linguistic blend of tension and integrity. [e]
  • Developed Article Architecture [r]: The art and technique of designing and constructing buildings to fulfill both practical and aesthetic purposes. [e]
  • Developing Article Integrity [r]: In information security, the assurance that data retrieved from an information system has the same meaning as when it was entered [e]
  • Developing Article Stereology [r]: The science of estimating or measuring geometrical quantities. First order quantities include volume, surface area, length, and numbers of objects. Second order quantities include size distribution, and anisotropy. [e]
  • Stub Topology [r]: A branch of mathematics that studies the properties of objects that are preserved through continuous deformations (such as stretching, bending and compression). [e]
