It was developed in Eastern Europe by Antoni K pi ski . In the late 1970s, Lithuania n psychologist Au ra Augustinavi i t created socionics , a personality typology based on the typology of Carl Jung and the theory of information metabolism of Antoni K pi ski , a Poland Polish psychiatrist interested in schizophrenia . According to Augustinavi i t , humans can be classified in terms of types of information processing , or information metabolism . Psychological features such as attention, interests, memory and motivation are components of this theory of information metabolism. This theory of information metabolism is built upon an analogy to biological metabolism . According to this analogy, information that arrives as signals from outside an organism are available for information metabolism just as food is available for energy metabolism. The brain is the key information metabolism system. The brain and information metabolism deal with a two way flow of signals metabolism of input signals results in the production of output.

    Refimprove date November 2008 Carbohydrate metabolism denotes the various biochemistry biochemical processes responsible for the anabolism formation , catabolism breakdown and interconversion of carbohydrates in life living organism s. The most important carbohydrate is glucose , a simple sugar monosaccharide that is metabolized by nearly all known organisms. Glucose and other carbohydrates are part of a wide variety of metabolic pathways across species plants synthesize carbohydrates from atmospheric gases by photosynthesis storing the absorbed energy internally, often in the form of starch or lipid s. Plant components are eaten by animals and fungi , and used as fuel for cellular respiration . Oxidation of one gram of carbohydrate yields approximately 4 kcal of Chemical energy energy and from lipids about 9 kcal. Energy obtained from metabolism e.g. oxidation of glucose is usually stored temporarily within cells in the form of adenosine triphosphate ATP . Organisms capable of aerobic respiration metabolize glucose and oxygen to release energy with carbon dioxide and water as byproducts. Carbohydrates include complex and simple sugars. Simple sugars can be broken down directly in cells.

Derangements of this mechanism lead to hypercalcemia or hypocalcemia , both of which can have important consequences for health. Calcium location and quantity Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the human body. The average adult body contains in total approximately 1  kg, 99 in the skeleton in the form of calcium phosphate salts. The extracellular fluid ECF contains approximately 22.5  mmol, of which about 9  mmol is in the blood plasma serum . Approximately 500  mmol of calcium is exchanged between bone and the ECF over a period of twenty four hours. ref cite book last1 Marshall first1 W.

The amount of total calcium varies with the level of serum albumin , a protein to which calcium is bound. The biologic effect of calcium is determined by the amount of ionized calcium , rather than the total calcium.
