Sexually dimorphic role for vasopressin in the development of social play
Matthew J. Paul,Joseph I. Terranova,Clemens K. Probst,Elaine K. Murray,Geert J. de Vries
Frontiers in Behavioral Neuroscience , 2014, DOI: 10.3389/fnbeh.2014.00058
Abstract: Despite the well-established role of arginine vasopressin (AVP) in adult social behavior, its role in social development is relatively unexplored. In this paper, we focus on the most prominent social behavior of juvenile rats, social play. Previous pharmacological experiments in our laboratory suggested that AVP regulates play in a sex- and brain region-specific manner in juvenile rats. Here we investigate the role of specific AVP systems in the emergence of social play. We first characterize the development of play in male and female Wistar rats and then ask whether the development of AVP mRNA expression correlates with the emergence of play. Unexpectedly, play emerged more rapidly in weanling-aged females than in males, resulting in a sex difference opposite of that typically reported for older, juvenile rats. AVP mRNA and play were correlated in males only, with a negative correlation in the bed nucleus of the stria terminalis (BNST) and a positive correlation in the paraventricular nucleus of the hypothalamus (PVN). These findings support the hypothesis that AVP acts differentially on multiple systems in a sex-specific manner to regulate social play and suggest a role for PVN and BNST AVP systems in the development of play. Differential neuropeptide regulation of male and female social development may underlie well-documented sex differences in incidence, progression, and symptom severity of behavioral disorders during development.

Literatura y lingüística , 2003, DOI: 10.4067/S0716-58112003001400006
Abstract: the following paper deals with the borgian concept of the world and the poetic that comes from reading the tales of this wise and enigmatic argentinean writer. interesting biographical details are given explaining his profound nihilism concerning the possibility of knowing and representing the outside world. the paper also goes in depth with the metaphors of the mirror, the labyrinth and the dream, as well as the mysticism of the jewish superstition: with which a world that presents itself chaotic, infinite, barely understandable for the human intellect and a true secret order is illustrated. finally, it demonstrates the parody present in the relationship borges establishes with the detective story, that subverts from the figure of the triumphant rationalist, and affirms the importance of the reader, who becomes part of the search for understanding that make him an element of the inter textuality of the story

Jorge Luis Borges y su detective-lector

Literatura y lingüística , 2003,
Abstract: En este trabajo se aborda el concepto borgiano del mundo y la poética de la lectura que deriva del relato de enigma del erudito escritor argentino. Se entregan interesantes antecedentes biográficos que explican su profundo nihilismo frente a la posibilidad de conocer o representar el mundo externo y se profundiza en las metáforas del espejo, el laberinto y el sue o, como también en el misticismo de la cábala judía: con ello se ilustra un mundo que se presenta caótico, infinito, cuando no ininteligible para la mente humana, un auténtico orden secreto. Por último, se demuestra la relación paródica que Borges establece con el cuento detectivesco clásico, que subvierte la figura del racionalista triunfante, y se afirma la importancia que se le asigna al lector, quien se hace parte de una búsqueda de sentidos que lo instalan en la intertextualidad del relato The following paper deals with the borgian concept of the world and the poetic that comes from reading the tales of this wise and enigmatic Argentinean writer.

En busca de Klingsor de Jorge Volpi: Una novela con formato policial híbrido, posmoderno y poscolonial En busca de Klingsor by Jorge Volpi: A novel with a hybrid, postmodern and postcolonial narrative format
Clemens A Franken K
Acta Literaria , 2012,
Abstract: Este artículo se basa en la hipótesis de que el escritor mexicano Jorge Volpi utiliza en su novela En busca de Klingsor un formato policial híbrido y posmoderno. En el primer capítulo se expone brevemente su concepto de realidad cercano al de los filósofos y escritores existencialistas que la consideran inasible, contradictoria y caótica. En el capítulo dos se analiza primero la inversión posmoderna del esquema policial clásico haciendo fracasar la búsqueda del dúo detectivesco-científico Francis Bacon y Gustav Links que presentan al final dos versiones distintas y contradictorias. Luego se estudia los antecedentes biográficos, el perfil psicológico, la conducta moral y el método de investigación de los dos detectives, mostrándose el primero como un joven norteamericano muy inteligente pero inseguro y sexualmente dependiente de su amante, mientras que su ayudante y guía alemán de edad avanzada, educado en los valores de la disciplina, austeridad y nacionalismo, rompe con virtudes importantes como la fidelidad, sinceridad y el compromiso, actuando ambiguamente en diversos ámbitos. This papers is based in the hypothesis the Mexican author Jorge Volpi uses in his novel En busca de Klingsor (In search of Klingsor), a postmodern and hybrid detective narrative format. In the first chapter of this study his concept of reality is briefly presented, a concept of reality close to the existentialist philosophers and writers’ concept of reality, who considered it as an ungraspable, contradictory and chaotic one. In the second chapter the post-modern inversion of the classic detective fiction scheme is analyzed in the first place, where the detective-scientific duo Francis Bacon and Gustav Links fails presenting two diverse and contradictory versions of what really happened. In the second place, the biographic antecedents, the psychological profile, the moral conduct, and the research method of both detectives are studied. The first detective is shown as a North American young man, who is intelligent but insecure, and sexually dependent on his lover, while his German assistant and guide, an elderly man, educated in the values of discipline, austerity and nationalism, breaks up with important virtues like fidelity, sincerity and commitment, acting in an ambiguous manner in many domains.
