  • Dr. Herbert Levine, UCSD, Non-Equilibrium Physics Underlying Biological Function: The Case of Bacterial Colony Patterns
    application of these concepts to better comprehend biological processes in which the spatial structure has a clear functional purpose Theoretical physics has a crucial role to play both in sharpening our fundamental concepts and in helping incorporate the numerous regulatory feedbacks unique to the biological context into our conceptual framework This talk will describe the implementation and current status of this research program for the specific case of bacterial colony

    reversible byproduct of cognitive machinery that evolved to detect coalitional alliances The results show that subjects encode coalitional affiliations as a normal part of person representation More importantly when cues of coalitional affiliation no longer track or correspond to race subjects markedly reduce the extent to which they categorize others by race and indeed may cease doing so entirely Despite a lifetime s experience of race as a predictor of
