When somebody mentions #anaesthetics , we probably think straight away of pain relief, but there's a lot more going on in these complex chemical compounds than the simple negation of discomfort.
While there's a range of #chemicals that can induce anaesthesia in humans, just how these unrelated compounds trigger a lack of #consciousness remains somewhat unclear.
And the #mystery deepens when you consider it isn't only #animals that are affected by anaesthetics – plants are, too.
#Humans in #ancient societies were using things like #herbs for various #sedative purposes thousands of years ago, but the roots of modern anaesthesia began around the mid-19th century, when physicians began administering diethyl ether to patients during surgical procedures.
It was only a few decades later that scientists realised plants were similarly affected by ether, leading French physiologist Claude Bernard to conclude plants and animals shared a common biological essence that could be disrupted by anaesthetics.
A century and a half later, scientists are still investigating this strange commonality – basically by slipping plants the mickey and seeing what it does to them.
In a new study by #Japanese and #European researchers, the team filmed a number of plants that exhibit the phenomenon of rapid plant movement to see what kinds of anaesthetic chemicals affected them. 🛂🆕⬇️Find out more below in ⬇️ COMMENTS 🆕🛂
Most important thing for budding millennials. #lifetips#blessed#anaesthetics
I initially posted this ironically but 7 years ago I was in Seoul doing radio news stories about twitter and cakes with the handful of people who spoke English as subjects. I hoped that experience would get me somewhere as a budding journalist who could get media passes to cool events and conferences and report on things. But I strayed off that career path and while I detest this shitty marketing campaign maybe there is some truth to it.
