Neighborhood Influences on Late Life Cognition in the ACTIVE Study
Shannon M. Sisco,Michael Marsiske
Journal of Aging Research , 2012, DOI: 10.1155/2012/435826
Abstract: Low neighborhood-level socioeconomic status has been associated with poorer health, reduced physical activity, increased psychological stress, and less neighborhood-based social support. These outcomes are correlates of late life cognition, but few studies have specifically investigated the neighborhood as a unique source of explanatory variance in cognitive aging. This study supplemented baseline cognitive data from the ACTIVE (Advanced Cognitive Training for Independent and Vital Elderly) study with neighborhood-level data to investigate (1) whether neighborhood socioeconomic position (SEP) predicts cognitive level, and if so, whether it differentially predicts performance in general and specific domains of cognition and (2) whether neighborhood SEP predicts differences in response to short-term cognitive intervention for memory, reasoning, or processing speed. Neighborhood SEP positively predicted vocabulary, but did not predict other general or specific measures of cognitive level, and did not predict individual differences in response to cognitive intervention. 1. Introduction The neighborhood has emerged as a prominent level of analysis in studies of contextual influences on health and wellbeing in human development. This owes to the social organization of life within neighborhoods, and to the availability of data at neighborhood-like levels of analysis (i.e., census tracts). Neighborhood context has also received greater attention due to ecological psychology’s conceptualization of human development as the product of a dynamic interaction between the individual and multiple nested environments, of which the neighborhood is one of the most immediate environments [1]. Contemporary scholarship on neighborhood factors has also highlighted the importance of understanding whether neighborhood variables add explanatory variance above and beyond individual differences. Neighborhood socioeconomic status (SES) is the most consistently reported neighborhood-level predictor of cognitive outcomes—certainly in childhood, and potentially across the life span [2]. SES is also the strongest and most consistently reported neighborhood-level predictor of health outcomes among older adults—a relationship which may have a cumulative effect across the life span [3]. The association of neighborhood-level SES with health is in fact stronger among adults aged 60–69 than among young and middle-aged adults, and during these years its association with health is comparable to or stronger than the relationship of individual SES to health [4]. In addition to predicting poorer

La universidad de México: Historia y Desarrollo
Renate Marsiske
Revista Historia de la Educación Latinoamericana , 2006,
Abstract: La Universidad Real y Pontificia de México, fundada en 1551, es una de las más antiguas en el continente americano, y hoy, como Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México la de más prestigio académico en América Latina; produce más del cincuenta por ciento de la investigación que se hace en México. La organización de los saberes en la Universidad colonial siguió el modelo tradicional de las universidades medievales europeas: cuatro facultades mayores Teología, Cánones, Leyes y Medicina y una menor Artes. Allí se formaron, sobre todo clérigos y además los miembros de la incipiente burocracia novohispana. Con dificultades, la Universidad sobrevivió la Independencia de México en 1810 y fue en 1865 cuando se cerró la institución, impartiéndose de ahí en adelante la educación superior en México en las Escuelas Nacionales. La nueva instituci ón universitaria contemporánea se fundó en 1910 como Universidad Nacional de México uniendo las diferentes Escuelas Nacionales. En 1929 se modificó la Ley Orgánica dando una autonomía limitada a la Universidad, una autonomía completa en la Ley Orgánica de 1933, deslig ándose el Estado mexicano de ella y es hasta 1945 con la Ley Orgánica vigente hasta hoy que se normalizan las relaciones entre la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México y el Estado Mexicano, haciendo posible que se haya desarrollado una Universidad Nacional con sus tres funciones: docencia, investigación y extensión de la cultura.
Charm and Charmonium Spectroscopy at the e+e- B-Factories
Helmut Marsiske
Physics , 2006,
Abstract: Over the past few years, there has been a lot of progress in the areas of charm and charmonium spectroscopy, in large part due to the very large data samples being accumulated at the e+e- B-Factories. In this presentation I will focus on results in three areas: the X/Y/Z charmonium-candidate states, the D_sJ charmed-strange mesons, and newly-discovered charmed baryons. Note the absence of a section on pentaquarks: all B-Factory searches for pentaquarks, charmed or otherwise, have not yielded any observation of such states.
