The cellular prion protein (PrP(C)) is a membrane-bound glycoprotein especially abundant in the central nervous system (CNS). The scrapie prion protein (PrP(Sc,) also termed prions) is responsible of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE), a group of neurodegenerative diseases which affect humans and other mammal species, although the presence of(More)
OBJECTIVE Recently, the DSM-5 has developed a new diagnostic category named "Substance-related and Addictive Disorders".

INTRODUCTION The scrapie prion protein (PrPsc) requires the cellular prion protein (PrPc) for its propagation and replication. In this work we studied the expression and localization of the PrPc in the central nervous system (SNC) of the rat, mouse, cat, cow and human, using immunohistochemistry and Western blot techniques to understand more about(More)
The purpose of this research is to investigate the impact of usability on motivation in Augmented Reality serious games. As a test-bed, we developed and evaluated a novel application of mobile phone Augmented Reality (AR) for passive solar energy education (AR-SEE). The goal of AR-SEE is to enable students to learn about the science behind architectural(More)

At a time when physical distance or travel/freight costs are becoming less and less a constraint to economic activity and quality of life, new factors for territorial development (NFTD) are increasingly impacting regional dynamics in Europe, making it possible to overcome traditional difficulties associated to peripheral locations, and offering new(More)
The epidemiological data of prevalence of mental disorders according to gender differences are controversial. We analysed the prevalence among men and women via a two-stage epidemiological community study using the GHQ-28 and the SCAN on the island of Formentera (Spain). There are no sex differences in total prevalence; nevertheless some significant(More)
