Prospective Memory Assessment, before and after the Use of Concentrated Extract of Soy, in Postmenopausal Women Complaining of Memory Impairment  [PDF]
Lucia Helena Laprano Vieira, Teresa Raquel Embiru?u de Araújo, Mauro Abi Haidar, Ivaldo Silva
Neuroscience & Medicine (NM) , 2013, DOI: 10.4236/nm.2013.44034

Objective: To evaluate the performance of a sample of postmenopausal women complaining of decline of prospective memory, undergoing therapy with concentrated extract of soy (CES) for six months, through specific neuropsychological assessment, developed for this purpose. Materials and Methods: A randomized and double-blind study was with 90 women, 12-month amenorrhea, 40 years to 65 years and body mass index (BMI) above 30 kg/m2, whose complaints were reduction of cognitive efficiency. The participants were randomly divided into two treatment groups: Group I received one capsule of 150 mg extract of soy, with 60 mg isoflavones orally/day; Group IIreceived one capsule placebo, for six months. All participants underwent a detailed interview, the MMSE, depression scale, and as they were being included in the study, self-perception scales and neuropsychological tests before and after six months of treatment. For analysis purposes, we applied the ANOVA and t-student tests. Results: Our results suggest a possible positive effect regarding the improvement in verbal fluency and executive function tasks of planning and mental flexi

Nation of Ghosts?: Haunting, Historical Memory and Forgetting in Post-Franco Spain
Colmeiro, José
452o F : Revista de Teoría de la Literatura y Literatura Comparada , 2011,
Abstract: This essay examines some of the critical and theoretical approaches in the area of historical memory and identity studies that have emerged as a response to the contemporary cultural challenges that have resulted from the social and political transformations which havetaken place globally in the last decades. The essay narrows its focus to a case study of the role of historical memory in the formation of collective identities in contemporary Spain, in the aftermath of the dictatorship and the subsequent political transition. This study explores in particular the use of the trope of haunting ghosts in contemporary Spanish literature and cinema as symtomatic form of spectrality of the repressed collective past.

Abstract: the article that is shown analyze the firsts years of chilean transition (1987-1988) from the perspective of the historic memory, considering the shape in that the remembers of had been the frei and popular unity government, thus like the military state stroke and the dictatorship, signed the politic and social development in that period, specially, in the voting process of 1988. for that, we consider the instances that made that voting process possible, the developed pro-government officials and opponents campaigns, and the reasons that explain the results to consider it the process origin point that it allowed the return to the democracy in chile, after 17 years of dictatorship

Non-local effects at the onset of the chiral transition
Palhares, Letícia F.;Fraga, Eduardo S.;Kodama, Takeshi;Krein, Gast?o;
Brazilian Journal of Physics , 2007, DOI: 10.1590/S0103-97332007000400033
Abstract: inspired by analytic results obtained for a systematic expansion of the memory kernel in dissipative quantum mechanics, we propose a phenomenological procedure to incorporate non-markovian corrections to the langevin dynamics of an order parameter in field theory systematically. in this note, we restrict our analysis to the onset of the evolution. as an example, we consider the process of phase conversion in the chiral transition.
Memorias de la transición: la sociedad argentina ante sí misma, 1983-1985
Martín, Lucas;
Política y cultura , 2009,
Abstract: the aim of this article is to examine a particular aspect of the "process of national reorganization" collective memory in argentina: the place of the society and its relation with factual truth in the elaborations of the collective memory of transition, in immediately post-dictatorial period (1983-1985). the intention is not to return on the theoretical discussions between memory and historical truth, but to analyze how argentineans figured their own responsibility, and the knowledge or the ignorance that they had had about the truth of the crimes of the process, in their collective memory of the dictatorial past during transitional period.
Mansilla Torres,Sergio;
Alpha (Osorno) , 2010, DOI: 10.4067/S0718-22012010000100006
Abstract: a significant portion of chilean poetry seems to have substituted authentic liricism for a hypertrophy of the metapoetical, which correlates with the high degree of specialization of writing. this specialization occurs less as forms of vanguard or post-vanguard (re)writings, and more as a sociocultural consequence of the clouding of the political and historical horizon; a clouding that makes a poetic imagination without reference to reality possible and sustainable. on the contrary, writings whose rhetoric transmutes cultural memories of a specific territorialized community, function in order to assure that the poetry not be the end in and of itself, but the medium through which to read/write "strongly" history, the world.
Las abarcas de Fontanosas, o cuando la memoria/escritura es la memoria/escritura de uno mismo.
Olivar , 2006,
Abstract: making a story about the past may be a challenging task, because of the existing tensions between memory and writing, especially when a society carries a traumatic experience in its recent past. focusing on the tensions between memory and writing, this article puts forward a reflection about the possibilities of telling the recent past in spain around the named "pact of silence". the starting point of this analysis is the anonymous letter from a soldier of franco's army, written in a confessional tone, which, appearing half a century later, helped to find and exhume the remains of a group of shot soldiers.

Abstract: the concept of "transitional justice" and its related processes have experienced a renovation. this article presents some thoughts about a frequently forgotten subject which has special importance in the field of the so called "memory policies": the treatment of the repression files as a matter of human rights. in the first place, the text deals with some features of the uruguayan situation as a reference point. then, the topic is considered from a global point of view which shows the main guidelines of the most recent international experience on the subject.
The Prince and the Hobby-Horse: Shakespeare and the Ambivalence of Early Modern Popular Culture
Natália Pikli
Journal of Early Modern Studies , 2013,
Abstract: The Shakespearean hobby-horse, mentioned emphatically in Hamlet, brings into focus a number of problems related to early modern popular culture. In the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries the word was characterised by semantic ambivalence, with simultaneously valid meanings of a breed of horse, a morris character, a foolish person, and a wanton woman. The overlapping of these meanings in different cultural discourses of the age (playtexts, emblem books, popular verse, pictures) exemplifies the interaction of different productions of early modern popular culture, from social humiliating practices to festivals and public playhouses. This attests to a complex circulation of cultural memory regarding symbols of popular culture, paradoxically both ‘forgotten’ and ‘remembered’ as a basically oral-ritual culture was transformed into written forms. In this context, the Hamletian passage gains new overtones, while the different versions of the playtext (Q1 & 2: 1603, 1604, F: 1623) also offer insights into the changing attitudes regarding popular culture, as it became gradually commercialised and politicised in the following decades. Finally, Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale and Jonson’s Bartholomew Fair solidify a critical and sceptical attitude, which seems to have signalled the end of ‘Merry Old England’ on-stage and off-stage as well.
