Abstract: sunflower seed oils with different levels of oleic acid were investigated under temperature of frying conditions to evaluate their thermal and oxidative stability. the behavior of the oils was analysed on their contents of polar compounds, minor glyceridic compounds, triglyceride composition, induction time at 100oc and a -tocopherol levels. the results indicated lower polar compounds contents in high oleic sunflower oil than in normal sunflower oil. the results also showed an increase on total polar compounds mainly related on high molecular weight compounds, polymers, dimers and oxidized triglycerides monomers as thermal and oxidative reaction products. in contrast, the contents of diglycerides and free fatty acids, indicatives of the hydrolytic alteration, remain constant, once there was no moisture in the medium. the quantitative loss of the triglyceride composition was dependent on their insaturation degree and it was higher in triglycerides that contain two or three molecules of linoleic acid. the normal sunflower oil showed, in all experiments, a higher tendency to the polymerization, a higher degree of total alteration and a higher loss on its major triglycerides that on high oleic sunflower oil. in general, the results showed an excellent behavior of the high oleic sunflower oil related to the thermoxidation, independently of the heating type and to the discontinuous frying. such results demonstrated that its thermal and oxidative stability was related on its low content of polyunsaturated fatty acids and high contents of oleic acid and triolein.

Abstract: óleos de sementes de girassol com diferentes níveis de ácido oléico foram utilizados sob condi es de termoxida o e fritura para avaliar o comportamento do óleo de girassol com alto teor de ácido oléico quanto ao seu grau de insatura o quando comparado com o óleo de girassol convencional. Os métodos analíticos aplicados incluíram a determina o de compostos polares totais, quantifica o de compostos glicerídicos menores, quantifica o da composi o triglicerídica, período de indu o a 100oC e níveis de a -tocoferol. Os resultados para compostos polares totais apresentaram menores valores em óleo de girassol com alto teor de ácido oléico quando comparados com óleo de girassol convencional. Quanto à distribui o dos compostos glicerídicos menores, verificou-se, de modo geral, que o aumento dos compostos polares totais estava relacionado essencialmente aos compostos de maior peso molecular, isto é, polímeros, dímeros e triglicerídios oxidados, os quais s o representantes das altera es térmica e oxidativa. Já os diglicerídios e ácidos graxos, indicativos da altera o hidrolítica, permaneceram praticamente nos níveis originais; uma vez que a umidade n o se encontrava presente no meio. A perda quantitativa da composi o triglicerídica dependeu do grau de insatura o do triglicerídio, sendo mais elevada em triglicerídios que contêm duas ou três moléculas de ácido linoléico. Em todos os casos, o óleo de girassol convencional teve uma maior tendência à polimeriza o, um maior grau de altera o total e uma maior perda de triglicerídios majoritários que o óleo de girassol com alto teor de ácido oléico. Assim, dentre os óleos utilizados neste estudo, os resultados mostraram um excelente comportamento do óleo de girassol com alto teor de ácido oléico em rela o à termoxida o, independente do tipo de aquecimento e à fritura descontínua. Tais resultados demonstraram que sua resistência à altera o termoxidativa estava relacionada com seu baixo teor em ácidos graxos polinsaturados e alto teor em ácido oléico e trioleína.

Abstract: there is evidence that oxidative stress, defined as a persistent imbalance between the production of highly oxidative compounds and antioxidant defenses, leads to tissue damage. oxygen metabolism generates free radicals and/or non-radical reactive oxygen species. the mitochondria, through the electron transport chain, are the main generator of these species. the antioxidant defense system has the function of inhibiting and/or reducing the damage caused by the deleterious free radicals and/or non-radical reactive oxygen species. this system is divided into enzymatic (superoxide dismutase, catalase and glutathione peroxidase), and nonenzymatic. the nonenzymatic system consists of a variety of antioxidant substances, which may be endogenous or dietary. this study proposed to review the main mechanisms of reactive oxygen species generation and the role of the most relevant agents of the antioxidant defense system on the biomarkers of oxidative stress. the main exogenous factors that modulate oxidative stress will also be discussed.

Abstract: Introduction: Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation (tDCS) is a non-invasive, technique for brain stimulation. Anodal stimulation causes neuronal depolarisation and long-term potentiation, while cathodal stimulation causes hyperpolarisation and long-term depression. Stressors are associated with an increase in sympathetic cardiac control, a decrease in parasympathetic control, or both. Associated with these reactions is a frequently reported increase in Low Frequency (LF) Heart Rate Variability (HRV), a decrease in High Frequency (HF) power, and/or an increase in the LF/HF ratio. Objectives and aims: The present work aims to explore the tDCS potential in the modulation of the Autonomic Nervous System (ANS), through indirect stimulation of Anterior Cingulate Cortex (ACC). Methods: Two subjects, a 39 year old female and a 49 year old male, gave informed consent. Saline soaked synthetic sponges involving two, thick, metalic (stainless steel) rectangles, with an area of 25 cm2 each have been used as electrodes, connected to Iomed Phoresor II Auto device. It has been delivered a 2 mA current, for 20 minutes, over the left Dorsolateral Prefrontal Cortex (DLPFC) (Anode). Spectrum analysis (cStress software) of HRV has been performed before and after tDCS administration. Results: The female/male subject results of LF power, HF power and LF/HF ratio, before tDCS administration, were, respectively: 50.1 nu/60 nu, 46.1 nu/21.7 nu and 1.087/2.771; and, after tDCS administration, respectively: 33.5 nu/52.7 nu, 47.6 nu/ 22.8 nu and 0.704/2.312. Conclusions: tDCS over the left DLPFC (left ACC) increased parasympathetic activity and decreased sympathetic activity, suggesting the importance of tDCS in the management of stress-related disorders.
