  1. Valeria Añón (ed.), Historia de la conquista de México. Libro XII de la Historia general de las cosas de la Nueva España

    Díez-Canedo, Aurora
    Es de festejarse la aparición de un libro como el que hoy nos convoca. Me hace muy feliz estar en esta mesa, por lo que en primer lugar quiero agradecer a Clementina Battcock su invitación a la presentación de la edición argentina del Libro XII de la Historia general de las cosas de la Nueva España. Clementina, además, escribe las Notas histórico-filológicas del libro, indispensables para situar a un autor como fray Bernardino de Sahagún y conocer cuál fue el destino de su obra.

  2. Practicum de nutrición clínica en el Grado de NHD: seguimiento de la calidad y adquisición de competencias

    Norte Navarro, Aurora Isabel; Martínez Sanz, José Miguel; Hurtado Sánchez, José Antonio; Ortiz Moncada, Rocío; Romeu Quesada, María; Sospedra, Isabel
    El Grado en Nutrición Humana y Dietética (GNHD) de la Universidad de Alicante es una titulación con un elevado índice de experimentalidad. Entre las asignaturas que contribuyen a esta carga experimental destaca el Practicum de Nutrición Clínica (PNC), consistente en la realización de prácticas pre-profesionales en centros clínicos. Aunque existen numerosos estudios que ponen de manifiesto cuáles son las competencias profesionales a adquirir en el entorno de la nutrición, estas competencias tienen entre sus características la dificultad de su evaluación en el aula. El PNC supone un entorno ideal para la puesta en práctica de las mismas, dado que se...

  3. Functional Connectivity Substrates for tDCS Response in Minimally Conscious State Patients

    Cavaliere, Carlo; Aiello, Marco; Di Perri, Carol; Amico, Enrico; Martial, Charlotte; Thibaut, Aurore; Laureys, Steven; Soddu, Andrea
    Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive technique recently employed in disorders of consciousness, and determining a transitory recovery of signs of consciousness in almost half of minimally conscious state (MCS) patients. Although the rising evidences about its possible role in the treatment of many neurological and psychiatric conditions exist, no evidences exist about brain functional connectivity substrates underlying tDCS response. We retrospectively evaluated resting state functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) of 16 sub-acute and chronic MCS patients (6 tDCS responders) who successively received a single left dorsolateral prefrontal cortex (DLPFC) tDCS in a double-blind randomized cross-over trial. A...

  6. Space, Time And Change: Investigations Of Soil Bacterial Diversity And Its Drivers In The Mongolian Steppe

    Macrae-Crerar, Aurora Alexandra
    Microorganisms are the most diverse life forms on Earth and are the foundation of any ecosystem. As estimates of microbial diversity rapidly increase with advances in sequencing technologies, so does the need to identify the drivers of such overwhelming diversity. This is particularly true in soil—the most biodiverse habitat on the planet and the key component of terrestrial ecosystems, which are being altered by changes in climate and land use. In order to understand the potential consequences of these changes, we conducted a multi-year experiment to test the effects of global change on soil bacterial communities in northern Mongolia, a...

  7. Cell Biology Of Cheating - Mechanisms Of Chromosome Segregation During Female Meiosis

    Chmatal, Lukas
    Karyotype, chromosome number and composition, is a basic characteristic of species and its changes are frequently associated with speciation. Karyotype conversion, from mostly telocentric (centromere terminal) to mostly metacentric (centromere internal), typically reflects fixation of Robertsonian (Rb) fusions, a common chromosomal rearrangement that joins two telocentric chromosomes at their centromeres to create one metacentric. Fixation of Rb fusions can be explained by meiotic drive: biased chromosome segregation during female meiosis. However, there is no mechanistic explanation of why fusions preferentially segregate to the egg in some populations, leading to fixation and karyotype change, while other populations preferentially eliminate the fusions...

  9. A Model for (Quasi-)Periodic Multiwavelength Photometric Variability in Young Stellar Objects

    Kesseli, Aurora Y.; Petkova, Maya A.; Wood, Kenneth; Whitney, Barbara A.; Hillenbrand, L. A.; Gregory, Scott G.; Stauffer, J. R.; Morales-Calderon, M.; Rebull, L.; Alencar, S. H. P.
    We present radiation transfer models of rotating young stellar objects (YSOs) with hot spots in their atmospheres, inner disk warps, and other three-dimensional effects in the nearby circumstellar environment. Our models are based on the geometry expected from magneto-accretion theory, where material moving inward in the disk flows along magnetic field lines to the star and creates stellar hot spots upon impact. Due to rotation of the star and magnetosphere, the disk is variably illuminated. We compare our model light curves to data from the Spitzer YSOVAR project to determine if these processes can explain the variability observed at optical...

  11. What do people expect from a financial awareness platform? Insights from an online survey

    Panos, Georgios A.; Gkrimmotsis, Konstantinos; Bouzanis, Christoforos; Katmada, Aikaterini; Satsiou, Anna; Gasparini, Gian-Luca; Prospero, Aurora; Praggidis, Ioannis; Karapistoli, Eirini
    The aim of this study is to present the analysis of an online survey that was conducted in order to investigate individual attitudes and requirements from an online financial awareness platform. The survey aimed to elicit users’ self-assessed financial knowledge, financial capability and awareness, along with facets of their financial behaviour. Moreover, it entailed questions capturing attitudes towards technology and internet usage. Specifically, it targeted requirements for specific resources and features of a financial awareness platform, along with explicit motivations and incentives for participating and contributing to the platform of the PROFIT project. The custom-made online survey was completed by 494 respondents from different demographic groups and...

  12. Lineage-restricted function of the pluripotency factor NANOG in stratified epithelia.

    Piazzolla, D; Palla, AR; Pantoja, C; Cañamero, M; de Castro, IP; Ortega, S; Gómez-López, G; Dominguez, O; Megías, D; Roncador, G; Luque-Garcia, JL; Fernandez-Tresguerres, B; Fernandez, AF; Fraga, MF; Rodriguez-Justo, M; Manzanares, M; Sánchez-Carbayo, M; García-Pedrero, JM; Rodrigo, JP; Malumbres, M; Serrano, M
    NANOG is a pluripotency transcription factor in embryonic stem cells; however, its role in adult tissues remains largely unexplored. Here we show that mouse NANOG is selectively expressed in stratified epithelia, most notably in the oesophagus where the Nanog promoter is hypomethylated. Interestingly, inducible ubiquitous overexpression of NANOG in mice causes hyperplasia selectively in the oesophagus, in association with increased cell proliferation. NANOG transcriptionally activates the mitotic programme, including Aurora A kinase (Aurka), in stratified epithelia, and endogenous NANOG directly binds to the Aurka promoter in primary keratinocytes. Interestingly, overexpression of Nanog or Aurka in mice increased proliferation and aneuploidy...

  14. ADR en ODR: bereikt de nieuwe reglementering haar doel?

    Gelaesen, Aurore
    Alternatieve geschillenbeslechting is een fenomeen dat steeds meer aan belang inwint. Door de uitvaardiging van de Richtlijn ADR Consumenten en de Verordening ODR Consumenten creëerde de Europese wetgever een degelijk wetgevend kader rond alternatieve en online geschillenbeslechting. Maar dragen alle genomen initiatieven van vroeger en nu ook daadwerkelijk bij tot het doel dat ADR en ODR nastreeft? In deze masterthesis worden de wetgevende initiatieven en bestaande ADR-instanties afgetoetst aan de doelstelling uit de Richtlijn ADR Consumenten. Het doel is het bereiken van een hoog niveau van consumentenbescherming door te verzekeren dat consumenten op vrijwillige basis klachten tegen ondernemingen kunnen voorleggen...

  18. Insights into seascape ecology: landscape patterns as drivers in coastal marine ecosystems = Perspectives en l'ecologia del paisatge marí: els patrons del paisatge com a factors de control en els ecosistemes marins costaners

    Martínez Ricart, Aurora
    Habitats commonly occur as more or less interconnected patches constituting spatial heterogeneous mosaics. Connectivity and interactions among habitats can determine their functioning. Therefore, ecological patterns and processes within these habitats, and among them, are modulated by the spatial structure of the entire mosaic. Landscape ecology is aimed at understanding how the composition (patch types and sizes) and configuration (how those patches are arranged spatially) of habitats in a mosaic influence the functioning of the overall system and its individual components (the patches and the species moving across), at a panoply of spatial scales. Interactions at landscape level are usually associated...

  19. Tracing the Dragon: A Study of the Origin and Evolution of the Dragon Myth in the History and Literature of the British Isles

    Lestón Mayo, Mª Aurora
    Humans have invented such a variety of monsters to populate tales and nightmares that a comprehensive study of them all would be the work of a lifetime. And even if one were to pin down one particular breed, as I have done in this study with the dragon, the manifestations of the myth are so varied that a single dissertation is hardly enough to cover them all. There is an enormous quantity of dragon-related tales and traditions and this is a myth that is found in most cultures in the world, as well as in practically all periods of history. This study analyzes some of the...

  20. Estudio del papel modulador de la proteína Quinasa C y la Aurora Quinasa sobre las líneas celulares HMC-1560 y HMC-1560,816

    Tobío Ageitos, Araceli
    Los resultados obtenidos demuestran la importancia que posee la proteína quinasa C (PKC) en el proceso de activación de la líneas de mastocitos HMC-1560 y HMC-1560,816, presentes en pacientes con mastocitosis. La trascendencia de esta proteína se pone también de manifiesto al ser imprescindible en el tratamiento con inhibidores de tirosina quinasas, considerado el grupo de mayor relevancia en el tratamiento de las mastocitosis. Además, la activación de la PKC durante un periodo de tiempo prolongado provoca apoptosis en ambas líneas celulares y la modulación de ambas proteínas, PKC y tirosina quinasas, tiene como resultado una potenciación del efecto citotóxico de este último grupo y por tanto mayor...
