Experiences of other identities and Dissociative Identity Disorders in the continuum of Non-Ordinary Mental Expressions
Dissociative Identity Disorders (DIDs) – including experiences of other identities, multiple personality and possession – are an intriguing topic entailing deep historical, cultural and epistemological implications that run through the entire history of the human kind. Indeed,
Nanomaterials as promising alternative in the infection treatment
Nanotechnology offers groundbreaking solutions for the management of infections in the current era when the vast majority of antibiotics has become inefficient. Overcoming antimicrobial resistance and biofilm formation constitute a major challenge. In this review, we focus
Short sleep duration is associated with symptoms of depression
The average person spends about a third of his life sleeping, but for the busy and the ambitious that is a lot of time. Many of us would rather spend that time working on important projects or
Specific and non-specific biomarkers in neuroendocrine gastroenteropancreatic tumors
Neuroendocrine tumors (NETs) are a heterogeneous group of rare malignancies that can arise in almost all organs, although gastroenteropancreatic site (GEP) is the most common. Symptoms are rarely specific, and clinical manifestations may be evident only in
Capturing hydrogen transfer from modeling: a small step towards simulating chemical reactions by computers
All the matter of the world around us are made of atoms that are joined to form molecules. Chemists can create new molecules by changing connectivity of atoms in molecules through chemical reactions. Researchers can control reaction
The past shapes the future: How socio-environmental conditions affect growth and sexual dimorphism
Sexual size dimorphism (SSD) is the difference in body size between males and females of the same species, which is common among mammals with males typically being larger. Sexual selection is thought to be the main cause
What drives the syneresis of lacto-fermented sodium caseinate?
Fermented dairy products have a great nutritional value and health beneficial effect on host gut micro-biome, due to their probiotics bacteria. Syneresis is considered as a major defect in these acid-induced gels products, which is a major
Intense light boosts the circadian function of cardiac vessels which protects from heart attacks
Humans are daily exposed to intense light in the form of sunlight which is crucial for the circadian rhythms in our bodies to properly function. This is important as circadian rhythms regulate all physiological processes in the
Matching between adult neurons: feel abandoned? Just call on me
Plasticity in the central nervous system allows the adaptation of neural circuits to new circumstances, such as the recovery after brain injury. The mechanisms of neural plasticity include, among others, the formation of new synapses. An example
Ultrasound generate electricity inside the body
Implantable medical devices (IMDs) are highly beneficial to patient health. Concerning rapidly evolving technologies for IMDs, sustainable and reliable powering methods for IMDs is truly essential. They are generally relying on primary batteries, which are subject to
A molecular passport authorizes intracellular travel for a potential cancer therapy antibody
Whether from external environmental factors or spontaneous intracellular processes, the DNA in our cells is under constant bombardment by DNA damage. Because unrepaired DNA damage can cause cell death, our cells have evolved vital mechanisms to repair
What Should You Know About Telematics?
The popularity of telematics has soared in recent years, thanks to the rise of the internet and a spike in the number of telecommunication networks that can transfer data to offices in real-time for various purposes. Therefore,
What treatment is really medically and economically desirable for chronic hepatitis C patients with treatment failure after 8-week glecaprevir/pibrentasvir in Japan?
Currently, direct-acting agent (DAA) therapies have high efficacy and safety and are the main strategy to eliminate hepatitis C virus (HCV) worldwide. Some DAA therapies are also effective for HCV-infected patients who have experienced prior DAA failure.
