Download the spark of life electricity in the human body, frances ashcroft
We are all familiar with the idea that machines are powered by electricity, but perhaps notso aware that this is also true for ourselves. The Spark of Life is a spectacular account of the bodyelectric, showing how, from before conception to the last breath we draw, electrical signals in ourcells are essential to everything we think and do. These signals are produced by some amazingproteins that sit at the forefront of current scientific research - the ion channels. They are found inevery cell in Earth and they govern every aspect of our lives, from consciousness to sexualattraction, fighting infection, our ability to see and hear, and the beating of our hearts. Ion channelsare truly the 'spark of life'.Award-winning physiologist Frances Ashcroft weaves real-life stories withthe latest scientific findings to explain the fundamental role of ion channels in our bodies. Whathappens when you have a heart attack? Why does an electric eel not shock itself? Can someonereally die of fright? Why does Viagra turn the world blue? How do cocaine, LSD and morphine work?Why do chilli peppers taste hot? How do vampire bats sense their prey? Was Mary Shelley rightwhen she inferred that electricity is the 'Spark of Life? Frances Ashcroft explains all this andmore with wit and clarity. She introduces a cast of extraordinary personalities whose work hascharted the links between molecule and mind over the centuries. She recounts the scientificdetective stories involved in the development of our ideas about animal electricity, and shows howthese are intimately entwined with our understanding of electricity itself. And she describes how thelatest advances have led to the identification, and in some cases the cure, of a new class of
