In this paper, we propose that the level and function of an interrelated suite of hormones cortisol, estrogen, testosterone, and oxytocin operating throughout the body and brain have not been sufficiently addressed in their influence on cognition and socioemotional functioning in older adults. Within this model, the brain both regulates the production of hormones, and →

Intestinal bacteria encapsulated by biomaterials enhance immunotherapy

In this commensalistic relationship, intestinal bacteria not only participate in the regulation of the host immune system and the promotion of bone marrow hematopoiesis but also regulate the maturation and function of hematopoietic cells originating from the yolk sac.

Given the age-related decline in mental and motor imagery, it is not surprising that older adults do not benefit from →

Co 2 as an oxidant for high-temperature reactions

The main highlight of this review is to focus on the utilization of CO 2 as an oxidant for alkane dehydrogenation as well as reforming of hydrocarbons to synthesis gas, which is the building block for chemical synthesis.

Omics strategies for revealing yersinia pestis virulence

Further studies have revealed that the phospholipase D activity of Ymt is required for the survival of Y.pestis in the midgut of fleas by affording protection against a cytotoxic digestion product of blood plasma in the flea gut. A comparison of the genomes of Y.pestis and Y.pseudotuberculosis has identified nine loci, which are supposed to →

Nonhuman gamblers: lessons from rodents, primates, and robots

Some pathological features of gambling are similar to those of drug addiction, such as the need to gamble increasing amounts of money in order to achieve the desired excitement or " rush", the irritability that accompanies the abstention from the activity, the failure of attempts to control or stop the behavior.

A review of intentional and cognitive control in autism

To recognize this diversity, the notion of autism spectrum has been proposed, referring to both the extensive variety in functional abilities across the affected individuals and to the set of relatively heterogeneous disorders that make up the autism category. In their review, Geurts and colleagues give a critical examination of the existing disparity between the →

Animal welfare in extensive production systems is still an area of concern

An in-depth discussion of this definition is well-beyond the scope of this paper and it suffices to say that welfare depends on whether the animal is able to cope and on how much it has to do to cope with environmental challenges. From a management perspective, exposing animals early in their life to a diversity →

Virtual reality and empathy enhancement: ethical aspects

The most important features of computer-based VR are, on the one hand, the interactivity with digital scenarios, objects and avatars and, on the other, the motion tracking that permits the rendering of movement in a virtual environment from a first-person perspective. These apparatuses provide real-time information to the computer in order to render the virtual →

Bovine tuberculosis in britain and ireland – a perfect storm? the confluence of potential ecological and epidemiological impediments to controlling a chronic infectious disease

In many member states, eradication programmes proceeded effectively, resulting in the granting of OTF status to Denmark in 1980, the Netherlands in 1995, Germany and Luxembourg in 1997, Austria in 1999, France in 2001 and Belgium in 2002. A contributing factor to the rise in herd incidence in England and Wales can be attributed to →

Wild animal tuberculosis: stakeholder value systems and management of disease

If it is established that wild animals are important in the epidemiological cycle and act as a source of risk to livestock, the decision making process as to the preferred actions will primarily depend on the considerations of the reservoir status of the infected host and the broader societal values assigned to each species by →

Parameters that affect fear responses in rodents and how to use them for management
