Growing evidence of epidemiological, clinical and experimental studies has clearly shown a close link between adverse in utero environment and the increased risk of neurological, psychological and psychiatric disorders in later life. Fetal stresses, such as hypoxia, malnutrition, and fetal exposure to nicotine, alcohol, cocaine and glucocorticoids may(More)
—This paper describes a tactile sensing system based on a force/torque sensor for the feet of a pipe crawling robot. Such a sensing system is needed for better optimization of force and joint load distribution and a safer avoidance of the risk of foot slippage. While conventional tactile sensing devices typically provide information concerning the spatial(More)
Isabel Millán † This paper has significantly benefited from comments and contributions made by Osvaldo Larrañaga. We are also grateful to Abstract Chile has been characterized in recent years as an economy of rapid growth and unequal distribution of income. However, this diagnosis does not consider the effort of the public sector in terms of social policy.(More)
Anisakiasis is a fish-borne parasitic disease caused by consumption of raw or undercooked fish or cephalopods parasited by Anisakis spp. third stage larvae. The pathological effects of the infection are the combined result of the mechanical action of the larva during tissue invasion, the direct tissue effects of the excretory/secretory products released by(More)

This paper presents a new approach for solving binary quantification problems based on nearest neighbor (NN) algorithms. Our main objective is to study the behavior of these methods in the context of prevalence estimation. We seek for NN-based quantifiers able to provide competitive performance while balancing simplicity and effectiveness. We propose two(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)
