Science of fat( Visual )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2009 in English and held by 281 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In four thought-provoking presentations, Dr. Ronald M. Evans and Dr. Jeffrey Friedman discuss the complex biological systems that control body weight and energy metabolism--and how a better genetic understanding of these processes could lead researchers to treatments that curb obesity and improve public health
Genes and body type( Visual )

1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 8 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cases and stories from United States and England personalize current scientific research and genetic causes of obesity, with focus on science of appetite, health risks associated with obesity and the benefits of exercise to override genetic makeup
Howl by Robert P Epstein( Visual )

1 edition published in 2011 in Spanish and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Every word in this film was spoken by the actual people portrayed. In that sense this film is like a documentary. In every other sense, it is different"--Title screen. In 1957, in San Francisco, poet Allen Ginsberg has just published "Howl." This distinctive work immediately generates a great deal of controversy. Publisher Lawrence Ferlinghetti has been sued on charges of obscenity, as many feel the poem is simply too explicit for publication (it contains strong language and frank references to homosexuality). When prosecutor Ralph McIntosh and defender Jake Ehrlich go head to head in front of Judge Clayton Horn, freedom of expression hangs in the balance. For the author, filled with the heady joy of poetic success, the trial demands the courage of being Allen Ginsberg--himself
Leptin and the biologic basis of obesity by Jeffrey Friedman( Visual )

2 editions published between 2006 and 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Recessive mutations in the leptin gene are associated with massive obesity in mice and some humans. Treatment with recombinant leptin markedly reduces food intake and body weight. The low leptin levels in patients with leptin mutations are also associated with multiple abnormalities including infertility, diabetes and immune abnormalities all of which are corrected by leptin treatment. These findings have established important links between energy stores and many other physiologic systems and led to the use of leptin as a treatment for an increasing number of other human conditions including a subset of obesity, some forms of diabetes including lipodystrophy and hypothalamic amennorhea, the cessation of menstruation seen in extremely thin women. Identification of a physiologic system that controls energy balance establishes a biologic basis for obesity and further establishes links between leptin and numerous other physiologic responses
The celluloid closet by Robert P Epstein( Visual )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Documental sobre la homosexualidad en el cine, dirigido por el experto documentalista Rob Epstein (poseedor de 2 Oscar) y Jeffrey Friedman (cineasta, productor y ayudante de montaje de, entre otras, "Toro Salvaje"). (FILMAFFINITY)
Leptin and the neural circuit regulation food intake and glucose metabolism( Visual )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

(CIT): NIH Director's Wednesday Afternoon Lecture Series The discovery of leptin has led to the elucidation of a robust physiologic system that maintains fat stores at a relatively constant level. Leptin is a peptide hormone secreted by adipose tissue in proportion to its mass. This hormone circulates in blood and acts on the hypothalamus to regulate food intake and energy expenditure. When fat mass falls, plasma leptin levels fall stimulating appetite and suppressing energy expenditure until fat mass is restored. When fat mass increases, leptin levels increase, suppressing appetite until weight is lost. By such a mechanism, total energy stores are stably maintained within a relatively narrow range. Recessive mutations in the leptin gene are associated with massive obesity in mice and some humans. Treatment with recombinant leptin markedly reduces food intake and body weight. The low leptin levels in patients with leptin mutations are also associated with multiple abnormalities including infertility, diabetes, and immune abnormalities all of which are corrected by leptin treatment. These findings have established important links between energy stores and many other physiologic systems and led to the use of leptin as a treatment for an increasing number of other human conditions including a subset of obesity, some forms of diabetes including lipodystrophy and hypothalamic amenorrhea, the cessation of menstruation seen in extremely thin women. Identification of a physiologic system that controls energy balance establishes a biologic basis for obesity. Recent studies have explored the relationship between leptin and the reward value of food. In addition, new methods for identifying neurons activated by leptin and other stimuli have been developed as have methods for noninvasively activating cells using radio waves. These new approaches are being applied to studies of the neural processes that control feeding, a complex motivational behavior

James E. Darnell, Jr., M.D. : Vincent Astor professor, and head, Laboratory of Molecular Cell Biology, Rockefeller University by James E Darnell( Visual )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

James E. Darnell, Jr., the Vincent Astor Professor, received the 2002 Albert Lasker Award for special achievement in medical sciences. A pioneer in molecular biology, he is Head of the Laboratory of Molecular Cell Biology at Rockefeller University. Interviewed by Dr. Jeffrey Friedman, Dr. Darnell reminisces about his career which began in Columbus, Mississippi where his mother was a dietician. He completed study at the University of Mississippi before going to Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. While in St. Louis, he became interested in science on a basic level, particularly bacteriophages and microbiology. He credits his interest to interaction with many prominent doctors, some of whom became Nobel Laureates, including Arthur Kornberg from NIH who was considered the father of DNA bio-synthesis in a test tube and Dr. Francois Jacob. He spent 4 years at NIH working with Dr. Harry Eagle, a biological scientist before going to Paris as a post-doctoral fellow. Upon returning to this country, he joined the faculty of the MIT. He then went to Columbia University and was appointed the Kempner Prof. of Biological Sciences. He went to the Rockefeller University where his career focus shifted to the scientific aspects. He felt that the scientist should always work on the very best experiments possible, doing the very best work possible
