Wound Healing: From Epidermis Culture to Tissue Engineering  [PDF]
Alicia Lorenti
CellBio (CellBio) , 2012, DOI: 10.4236/cellbio.2012.12003
Abstract: The skin is the largest organ of the individual, being the interface between the body and the microenvironment. In severely burned patients and other diseases, the physiological processes of wound healing are not sufficient to complete the closure of their wounds. The in vitro culture of autologous epidermis, which has represented the beginning of Tissue Engineering, is a valuable tool for the treatment of these patients. Keratinocytes can be cultured and stratified in vitro, and an entire epidermal sheet can be obtained. The epidermis cells can be amplified in the laboratory from a skin sample to obtain a surface equivalent to that required for each patient. This technology was first used clinically in 1981 and in Argentina since 1991. Wound repair is a complex process that involves dermal and epidermal cells, extracellular matrix, soluble factors and the sum of interactions between them, providing physical, biological and chemical keys capable of guiding cell function. Seeking to improve the results obtained with cultured epidermis, tissue engineering was directed towards the development of substitutes that not only involve epidermis but also the dermal component. The tissue engineered skin and its therapeutic applications reported in this review demonstrate the feasibility and effectiveness of these approaches. It represents a clear benefit in wound healing. Now, focus must be directed on the development of new scaffolds, developed by different technologies, such as polymer science, or nanotechnology, able to be used as templates to direct the growth of cells, in an attempt to better regenerate the lost skin.
Gender Dysphoria and Body Integrity Identity Disorder: Similarities and Differences  [PDF]
Alicia Garcia-Falgueras
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2014.52025

Gender Dysphoria and Body Integrity Identity Disorder are sometimes together in the 19% of the cases. Other discomfort diseases related to identity, body scheme and/or integrity are discussed in relation to Gender Dysphoria. Because persons experiencing Gender Dysphoria need a precise diagnostic that protects their access to care and will not be used against them in social, occupational or legal areas a distinction diseases is provided in this text, because a meticulous description with clear exclusion criteria is required.

Hula Hoop in Fitness and the Centripetal Force  [PDF]
Alicia Garcia-Falgueras
Psychology (PSYCH) , 2016, DOI: 10.4236/psych.2016.713147
Abstract: Since centuries ago or even more, the hula hoop has been practiced by people to keep their good health while having fun. Curiously, this simple toy made by a plastic ring, also previously made by a circle of willow, rattan, grapevines or stiff grasses, is subjected to several high and complex physical laws that make, at the same time, possible its beautiful movements. Physical laws are opposing and/or accompanying the movement of the circle-hoop-ring, such as gravity, centripetal force, friction, speed or velocity, and acceleration, in a torque or tendency to rotate. Specific muscles of the body are activated during hula hoop dancing and a general cardio exercise is happening. On the other hand, a stimulation of creativity is also occurring to make a mathematically reasonable and beautiful flow of movements for the own enjoyment or to make a performance for other people’s enjoyment. Then, the dancer with a hoop is moving the ring around several parts of his/her body (waist, core, shoulders, neck, arms), also rolling it over the body like a wheel, making waves in different axis, tossing it to the air or floor, etc. and dancer can jump him/herself through the hoop, or stealing its movements with his/her body. While motor learning happens, specific areas of the brain are activated differently during trials of learning. Then flow and fluid movements become automatic in an asymmetrical way considering our hand preference. However, for getting all this benefits, it is required a controlled practice in children and adults, that means a smooth and not violent, reasonable and measured practice in time and intensity and not negligent or irresponsible. Otherwise, some lesions have been described in literature.
Fishtail Points, Technology and Microwear Analysis from the Negro River Basin, Uruguay  [PDF]
Hugo G. Nami, Alicia Castro
Archaeological Discovery (AD) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/ad.2014.23008
Abstract: Ongoing research performed in the central part of Uruguay added new Paleo-Southamerican finds from the Negro River basin. A number of lithic exemplars were analyzed to determine their technology and function. The examined artifacts provided a new perspective on Fisthail points. Microwear analysis showed that there is a difference in the location of microscopic polishing between the blade and stem in the examined points. Polishing in the stem’s border might be attributed to leather or a similar substance, probably the leather cord or sinew used to bind the points in the foreshaft. The surface of the stem shows a coarse micro-topography and has patches of black residues. The coarse micro-topography suggests the use of an adhesive substance covering the whole stem, while the black patches are probably the residue used to glue the points in the foreshafts. Most remarkable is the discovery of the use of edge-to-edge and overshot flaking for bifacial reduction, technical features shared with Paleoindian fishtailed points from North and Central America.
Los imaginarios urbanos y el constructivismo geográfico: los hologramas espaciales
EURE (Santiago) , 2007, DOI: 10.4067/S0250-71612007000200004
Abstract: this paper has a methodological orientation (a specific qualitative methodology). it also develops the relationship between the methodological proposal and a theoretical conceptualization of a constructivist type (a geographical constructivism). the first part of the text develops the perspective of the social construction of city places. the second part analyzes the relationship between urban imaginaries and the social construction of places. finally, the third part develops the central point of the article: the methodological challenges of this particular constructivist perspective. to do this, the most frequent approaches are analyzed and their limitations noted. this is followed by the methodological strategy called 'spatial holograms', which seeks to avoid the limitations of traditional approaches although it is not without pitfalls of its own
Los profesores y los decimales: Conocimientos y creencias acerca de un contenido de saber cuasi invisible
ávila, Alicia;
Educación matemática , 2008,
Abstract: this article analyzes the knowledge and beliefs a group of 25 elementary school teachers has about decimal numbers and their link with mexican reforms in mathematics at the end of the 20th century. the analysis is based on data collected from questionnaires, interviews, and opinions expressed in a workshop for fifth and sixth grade teachers, with the former in preponderance. the results show that, despite the mathematical and functional importance decimals have, these numbers constitute a quasi-invisible content in primary education, because the teachers' main concerns and actions center on how to write using "the point" minimizing and even excluding attention to the conceptual aspects of these numbers. it also offers decisive evidence that their knowledge of the math and teaching technique of decimals is quite limited, which sheds light on the approaches observed and the likelihood that the curricular innovation they are involved in will be overlooked unless institutional conditions are overhauled.
Forma y Función , 2012,
Abstract: in this paper, we analyze various grammatical phenomena found in bilingual speakers, as well as in speakers of spanish as a second language in a linguistic contact situation (toba-spanish) in argentina. on the one hand, we describe a number of structures that could be attributed to transference from the indigenous language; on the other hand, we examine some grammatical properties related to the process of second language acquisition which have no direct connection to the toba grammar. assuming this distinction as a starting point, we analyze the kind of grammatical element involved in each case. to do so, we adopt the generative grammar theoretical model and, especially, the proposal of the distributed morphology (halle & marantz 1993 and subsequent work) in order to adscribe the aforementioned phenomena to precise grammatical aspects. beyond the descriptive goal of this paper, the analysis of the data allows us to conclude that the transference processes and the second language acquisition phenomena show differences, and that these could be related to different grammatical "places". in addition, this analysis contributes to the general idea that variation across languages is formalizable, and that contact phenomena could help in this formalization.

Sujeto y narración: algunos recorridos en la Utopía Copi
Mora (Buenos Aires) , 2010,
Abstract: this work brings up a study of copi narrative as a utopic operation of resistance against all social and institutional practices and speeches that pretend to consider man as a predictable and controllable subject. in this sense, the instability and hybridisim of his writing emerge against all statements (that construct a focused and unique identity), and all kind of strategies of textualization that organize them by submiting to the coherence of both textual and sexual genre. so this writing sets up a literary system that "constructs" and "deconstructs" by itself with the hybrid form of autofiction , with an unconventional "camp" style and neobarroque esthetic, as evasion and escape device to all control and law that set up and support the pertinence of binary categories that reduce the plurality in the writing territory.
Evaluación de un programa de política social: Programa Materno Infantil y Nutrición
Aronna, Alicia;
Cadernos de Saúde Pública , 2006, DOI: 10.1590/S0102-311X2006000200011
Abstract: this study is based on an evaluation of the maternal and child health and nutrition program (promin) targeting pregnant women and their children under five years of age. the objective was to identify the conditioning factors for the program's implementation in rosario, argentina. there were three levels of analysis: the organizational environment as perceived by the executive directors of the health and child development centers; management of interventions by the health teams; and the community's perception of the program's accessibility and acceptability. two centers were chosen for the year 1998. empirical evidence was obtained through quantitative and qualitative procedures. the results suggest that the two centers' respective organizational environments influenced the intervention strategies. the goal for coverage had been set at 80%. documentation of the interventions by the two teams shows a partial and heterogeneous implementation. in terms of accessibility, mothers recognize the institutions by their reputation, quality of services, and extra services beyond the promin basics. acceptability is expressed as the provision of supplementary nutrition.
