Processes which involve altering an internal property of an Object, e.g. the shape of the Object, its coloring, its structure, etc. Processes that are not instances of this class include changes that only affect the relationship to other objects, e.g. changes in spatial or temporal location.
||Fermentation||Fermentation in food processing typically is the conversion of carbohydrates to alcohols and carbon dioxide or organic acids using yeasts, bacteria, or a combination thereof, under anaerobic conditions. [Wikipedia]|
| ||Metabolism||Metabolism is the set of life-sustaining chemical reactions in organisms. The three main purposes of metabolism are: the conversion of the energy in food to energy available to run cellular processes; the conversion of food to building blocks for Proteins, lipids, nucleic acids, and some Carbohydrates; and the elimination of metabolic wastes. These Enzyme -catalyzed reactions allow organisms to grow and reproduce, maintain their structures, and respond to their environments.[from Wikipedia]|
| ||NerveFiring||An action potential occurs when the membrane potential of a specific cell rapidly rises and falls. This depolarization then causes adjacent locations to similarly depolarize. Action potentials occur in several types of animal cells, called excitable cells, which include neurons, muscle cells, and in some plant cells. Certain endocrine cells such as pancreatic beta cells, and certain cells of the anterior PituitaryGland are also excitable cells. In neurons, action potentials play a central role in cell–cell communication by providing for—or with regard to saltatory conduction, assisting—the propagation of signals along the neuron's axon toward synaptic boutons situated at the ends of an axon; these signals can then connect with other neurons at synapses, or to motor cells or glands.[from Wikipedia]|
| ||PathologicProcess||A disordered process, activity, or state of the Organism as a whole, of a body system or systems, or of multiple Organs or Tissues. Included here are normal responses to a negative stimulus as well as patholologic conditions or states that are less specific than a disease. Pathologic functions frequently have systemic effects.|
| ||PhysiologicProcess||A normal process of an Organism or part of an Organism.|
| ||PsychologicalProcess||A BiologicalProcess which takes place in the mind or brain of an Organism and which may be manifested in the behavior of the Organism.|
| ||ViralCellInvasion||The Class of events in which a cell is penetrated by a virus and in which a virus enters the cell to be, or perhaps not be, further processed within the cell.|
