The early stages of Alzheimer's disease are characterised by impaired synaptic plasticity and synapse loss. Here, we show that amyloid-β oligomers (AβOs) activate the c-Abl kinase in dendritic spines of cultured hippocampal neurons and that c-Abl kinase activity is required for AβOs-induced synaptic loss. We also show that the EphA4 receptor tyrosine kinase(More)
In this article, I use Albert Hirschman's consumer-based 'exit' and 'voice' concepts in order to set out the political ecology of voice (PEV), an innovative theoretical framework that aims to examine the causes of environmental pollution from a new angle. I begin by providing a brief overview of political ecology, and why it provides such a useful framework(More)
This article focuses on the complex role that oil has played in many conflicts on the African continent. It begins by highlighting oil's influential role within war at a wider international level and provides a brief theoretical base from which to explore oil's role in the African continent. Then, the article provides evidence of petroleum's impact on(More)
Most pattern recognition applications within the Geoscience field involve the clustering and classification of remote sensed multispectral data, which basically aims to allocate the right class of ground category to a reflectance or radiance signal. Generally, the complexity of this problem is related to the incorporation of spatial characteristics that are(More)
An estimation of the water used for human consumption in hospitals is essential to determine possible savings and to fix criteria to improve the design of new water consumption models. The present work reports on cold water for human consumption (CWHC) in hospitals in Spain and determines the possible savings. In the period of 2005-2012, 80 Eco-Management(More)
