BIAS AND MENTAL TRAPS

Our mind is subject to systematic automatisms, even if we don't know! We often fall into many traps of the mind without realizing it. These traps, sometimes, they can lead us to a wrong perception of reality and events. Because of these patterns, on some occasions, we may not be able to review a story, an event or phenomenon in a realistic and objective manner, but we are inevitably influenced by our internal judgment. Judgment that follows certain patterns and leads us to imprecise interpretations, reaching erroneous conclusions. Nobody is excluded, we all have cognitive biases that arise from assumptions, [...]

But then how do they defend themselves from the attack of various parasites, like microorganisms, virus, mushrooms, insects, hungry predators and competition from other plants? Not only, they must also be able to protect themselves from various physical factors and critical conditions, such as a shortage or excess of water, or from excessive sun exposure. Plants have various physical barriers at their disposal, che insieme alla produzione di metaboliti tossici costituiscono dei meccanismi di [...]

The Exosomes: message bombs between cells

Exosomes are a recently discovered mode of cellular communication. Initially mistaken for scraps, could prove to be a promising tool for diagnosis and therapy. We are used to thinking of our body as a single machine, forgetting that it is instead made up of many parts. Each organ is made up of different tissues and many cells. However, the number of bacteria in our body exceeds that of our cells. And this makes us doubt that we might not be made of dreams but of bacteria. All these parts must communicate with each other to work. Just like in a car. [...]
