 Synonyms & Historicals
/pharmacology .
/mechanism of action .
/mode of action .
/pharmacodynamics .
/pharmacologic action .
Used with drugs and exogenously administered chemical substances for their effects on living tissues and organisms. It includes acceleration and inhibition of physiological and biochemical processes and other pharmacologic mechanisms of action. .
Molecular Mechanisms of Pharmacological Action .
Pharmacological Mechanisms of Action .
Molecular Mechanisms of Action .

Mechanicism .
Mechanics .
The branch of physics which deals with the motions of material bodies, including kinematics, dynamics, and statics. When the laws of mechanics are applied to living structures, as to the locomotor system, it is referred to as BIOMECHANICAL PHENOMENA. (From Dorland, 28th ed) .
Automation .
Automations .
Mechanization .
Controlled operation of an apparatus, process, or system by mechanical or electronic devices that take the place of human organs of observation, effort, and decision. (From Webster's Collegiate Dictionary, 1993) .
Internal Mechanisms of Disasters Production .
A process that usually follows the destructive phenomena or disasters in their origin and development, consisting of five main phases. (Free translation from the original: Material IV - Glosario de Protección Civil, OPS, 1992) .
Defense Mechanisms .
Mechanisms, Defense .
Unconscious process used by an individual or a group of individuals in order to cope with impulses, feelings or ideas which are not acceptable at their conscious level; various types include reaction formation, projection and self reversal. .
