Prevention of Nosocomial Infection in the Neurosciences Intensive Care Unit: Remember the Basics

(ICU) [ 1 ]. The case mix in the neurosciences ICU is not immune to such infectious complications [ 2, 3 ]. Such infections increase both the costs and lengths of stay [ 4, 5 ]. Overall mortality ... comprehensive strategy to limit rates of potentially preventable infections [ 37 ]. It is time to apply this knowledge to the neurosciences ICU, research it, modify it where needed, and audit the results. 1

Mathematics Education and Neurosciences: Relating Spatial Structures to the Development of Spatial Sense and Number Sense

Mathematics Education, The Netherlands Abstract The Mathematics Education and Neurosciences (MENS) project is aimed at exploring the development of the mathematical abilities of young (four- to six-year old

A quest in neurosciences: neuroportraits

in this field and will also attract more papers from neurosciences, as some special issues in the near future will prove. This ambition is based also on tradition as seminal electrophysiological papers ... nervous system, and as such the origins of neuroscience stretch back to antiquity. The neurosciences emerged from the biological sciences because conceptual building blocks were isolated, and the ways in

Neurocarta: aggregating and sharing disease-gene relations for the neurosciences

Background Understanding the genetic basis of diseases is key to the development of better diagnoses and treatments. Unfortunately, only a small fraction of the existing data linking genes to phenotypes is available through online public resources and, when available, it is scattered across multiple access tools. Description Neurocarta is a knowledgebase that consolidates ...

Rhetoric and the Neurosciences: Engagement and Exploration

) Few popular science news articles today attract as much attention or are communicated with as much flamboyance as those involving the neurosciences. Catchy but charged headlines such as “Obese Teens May

Introducing the neurosciences section of the journal of translational medicine

Journal of Translational Medicine Introducing the Neurosciences Section of the Journal of Translational Medicine Luis F Alguacil 0 0 Translational Research Unit, Hospital General de Ciudad Real ... emergence and maintenance of the problem. This fact extremely complicates laboratory modeling. It is clear that the fast development of the neurosciences along the XX century has led to important medical

Psycho-physiologic emergentism; four minds in a body

The mind-body problem represents one of the most debated topics in the neurosciences. From a psychological standpoint, abstract/non-material data are an intrinsic part of the mind, intervening to a ... -physiological basis of computational neurosciences (interaction 88 between distinct subunits) (5). These mental/ psycho- recognition and processing. Efferent motor responses are physiological mechanisms are

Transfer entropy—a model-free measure of effective connectivity for the neurosciences

Understanding causal relationships, or effective connectivity, between parts of the brain is of utmost importance because a large part of the brain’s activity is thought to be internally generated and, hence, quantifying stimulus response relationships alone does not fully describe brain dynamics. Past efforts to determine effective connectivity mostly relied on model based ...

Making the most of animal data – improving the prospect of success in pragmatic trials in the neurosciences

The contribution of ethology and evolutionary biology in neurosciences

importance of ethology and evolutionary biology to medicine as far as their special relevance to neurosciences is concerned. Primary examples are the studies of imprinting in newly hatched goslings and the

Auditory ERPs to Stimulus Deviance in an Awake Chimpanzee (Pan troglodytes): Towards Hominid Cognitive Neurosciences

open the way for future studies comparing endogenous neural activities between humans and chimpanzees. This signifies an essential step in hominid cognitive neurosciences.

Implementation of Integrated Learning Program in neurosciences during first year of traditional medical course: Perception of students and faculty

Background Our college introduced an integrated learning program (ILP) for first year undergraduates with an aim to develop, implement and evaluate a module for CNS in basic sciences and to assess the feasibility of an ILP in phase I of medical education in a college following traditional medical curriculum. Methods The idea of implementing ILP for Central Nervous System (CNS) in ...

Aggression in young children with concurrent callous–unemotional traits: can the neurosciences inform progress and innovation in treatment approaches?

EMOTION PROCESSING AND CU TRAITS IN CHILDREN Analysing how people respond to emotional faces has become a major tool in the neurosciences; the emotional face is a

Clinical proteomics of enervated neurons

The dynamic field of neurosciences entails ever increasing search for molecular mechanisms of disease states, especially in the domain of neurodegenerative disorders. The previous century heralded
