Re: Sound and how the brain reacts to it

... signals and sent to the brain. What remains unexplained is how the weakest audible sounds are detected, since they excite vibrations below the thermal noise background in the ear. The answer may be active amplification. Previous experiments performed in vitro found that bundles oscillate spontaneously ...

Re: PCR: Low Primer Annealing Temperature Explanation?

... jostling about (Brownian motion) and with hydrogen bonds continuously forming and breaking at rates and frequencies determined by the amount of thermal energy (temperature). To understand what happens in a PCR reaction, it is helpful to view the reaction mixture as populations of molecules. ...

Theories - Origin of Life

... to survive longer, allowing key reactions to happen. Deep-Sea Vents The deep-sea vent theory suggests that life may have begun at submarine hydrothermal vents, spewing key hydrogen-rich molecules. Their rocky nooks could then have concentrated these molecules together and provided mineral catalysts ...
