BACKGROUND The prevalence of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is high. NAFLD is linked to obesity, diabetes mellitus, and hypertriglyceridemia. Approximately 20% of patients with NAFLD will eventually develop cirrhosis. Our purpose was to investigate whether resveratrol decreased hepatic steatosis in an animal model of steatosis, and whether this(More)
Aging increases oxidative stress and inflammation. Melatonin counteracts inflammation and apoptosis. This study investigated the possible protective effect of melatonin on the inflammatory and apoptotic response secondary to ischemia induced by blockade of the right middle cerebral artery (MCA) in aging male Wistar rats. Animals were subjected to MCA(More)
The importance of astrocytes, one part of the glial system, for information processing in the brain has recently been demonstrated. Regarding information processing in multilayer connectionist systems, it has been shown that systems which include artificial neurons and astrocytes (Artificial Neuron-Glia Networks) have well-known advantages over identical(More)
The effect of high-protein fish meal on maltase and leucine aminopeptidase (LAPase) activities of the intestinal mucosa as well as the renal LAPase activity was studied. Four groups of female Wistar rats, weighing between 40-60 g, were fed diets with a 4 or 12% protein content of dry matter for 25 days. The protein source was casein for the control groups(More)
INTRODUCTION More than 50 years ago connectionist systems (CSs) were created with the purpose to process information in the computers like the human brain (McCulloch & Pitts, 1943). Since that time these systems have advanced considerably and nowadays they allow us to resolve complex problems in many disciplines (classification , clustering, regression,(More)
