The medical consensus is that our skill to appreciate human speech has developed over millions of years. in any case, there are entire parts of the mind dedicated to human speech. We discover ways to comprehend speech sooner than we will even stroll, and will seamlessly take in huge, immense quantities of data just by listening to it.

Prevention of atherosclerosis in apolipoprotein Edeficient mice by bone marrow transplantation, Science 1995;267:1034-37. PPARsANDATHEROGENESIS:MEDIATORSORMoDULATORSOFTHEINFLAMMATORY RESPONSE IN THE VESSEL WALL? Nikolaus Marx Introduction Within the last couple of years, peroxisome proliferator-activated receptors (pPARs) have received growing interest in vascular biology and atherosclerosis. Recent data in vascular cells suggested that PP ARs, initially identified as regulators of lipid metablosim and adipogenesis, might have anti-inflammatory effects in atherogenesis.

Smooth Muscle Cells Activated SMC increase the inflammatory response via an enhanced cytokine production. PPARa activation inhibits IL-I ~-induced expression oflL-6 and prostaglandin production in human aortic SMC  (Figure 2). PPARy has also been shown to affect SMC function since PPARy ligands inhibit the proliferation and migration of vascular SMC [10,46]. In addition, PPARy activation reduces phorbolester-induced expression ofMMP-9  thus contributing to the inhibition ofextracellular matrix (ECM) degradation leading to cell migration and plaque instability.
