Clinical trials, observational studies and meta-analysis

0. Background Human pharmacology is a non-linear science created by multiple variables at different levels of complexity: 1. Drug effects at molecular and cellular levels: drug-receptor interaction (pharmacodynamics) and drug disposition (pharmacokinetics) 2. Effects of drugs on human health and disease: safety, efficacy, and effectiveness 3. Effects of drugs in the society: economic aspects (i.e.,…

Interesting page: the foundations of chaos theory (i.e., nonlinear models).

These are in my opinion the best conceptual designs of lorenz attractors (also my favorites from an  artistic point of view). Acknowledgements to Emerson Taymor for allowing me sharing his creations in this blog. Many thanks!
