alpha effect

Endocrinology The metabolic, hemodynamic and modulatory effects of epinephrine and norepinephrine reflect the concentration of adrenergic receptors on the α and β cells of the pancreatic islets; α effects–epinephrine acting on β cells include glycogenolysis, gluconeogenesis, inhibition of insulin-stimulated glucose uptake in skeletal muscle and vasoconstriction

A crystallographic study of phenolates is underway in an attempt to determine whether or not the alpha effect is an electrostatic phenomenon.
He noted there would be "new science phenomena to be explored," including alpha effects on stability and turbulence, possible non-linear coupling between alphas, pressure driven current, turbulent transport, MHD stability and boundary plasma and (at Q greater than about 20) stability, control and propagation of the fusion burn and fusion ignition transient phenomena.
