Melatonin has been shown to inhibit long-term potentiation (LTP) in hippocampal slices of rats. Since LTP may be one of the main mechanisms by which memory traces are encoded and stored in the central nervous system, it is possible that melatonin could modulate cognitive performance by interfering with the cellular and/or molecular mechanisms involved in(More)
Interpretations of Einstein's equation differ primarily concerning whether E = mc 2 entails that mass and energy are the same property of physical systems, and hence whether there is any sense in which mass is ever 'converted' into energy (or vice versa). In this paper, I examine six interpretations of Einstein's equation and argue that all but one fail to(More)
Melatonin has been shown to exert potent antinociception but the sites and mechanisms of action underlying this effect have not yet been clarified. The effect of melatonin on spinal cord nociceptive transmission was studied in rats by assessing wid-up activity in a C-fiber reflex responses paradigm evoked by repetitive (0.6 Hz) electric stimulation.(More)
Einstein's 1935 derivation of mass—energy equivalence is philosophically impor­ tant because it contains both a criticism of purported demonstrations that proceed by analogy and strong motivations for the definitions of the 'new' dynamical quantities (viz relativistic momentum, relativistic kinetic energy and relativistic energy). In this paper, I argue(More)
The identification of pollen in an automated way will accelerate different tasks and applications of palynology to aid in, among others, climate change studies, medical allergies calendar, and forensic science. The aim of this paper is to develop a system that automatically captures a hundred microscopic images of pollen and classifies them into the 12(More)

Klebsiella pneu-moniae. Intermittent fever coincident with the worsening of diarrhea or thrush lesions. Sepsis in one opportunity. Poor weight gain. We requested some procedures. ANALYSIS: Gain-of-function human STAT1 mutation. Diagnosis: Chronic mucocutaneous candidiasis associated with STAT1 mutation. Conclusions: Susceptibility to Candida sp has been(More)
