Links between Insulin Resistance, Lipoprotein Metabolism and Amyloidosis in Alzheimer’s Disease  [PDF]
Ian James Martins, Rhona Creegan
Health (Health) , 2014, DOI: 10.4236/health.2014.612190
Abstract: The origins of premature brain aging and chronic disease progression are associated with atherogenic diets and sedentary lifestyles in Western communities. Interests in brain aging that involves non alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD), the global stroke epidemic and neurodegeneration have become the focus of nutritional research. Atherogenic diets have been linked to plasma ceramide dysregulation and insulin resistance actively promoting chronic diseases and neurodegeneration in developed countries. Abnormal lipid signaling as observed in chronic diseases such as hypothyroidism, obesity and diabetes is connected to stroke and neurodegenerative diseases in man. Lipids that are involved in calcium and amyloid betahomeostasis are critical to cell membrane stability with the maintenance of nuclear receptors and transcriptional regulators that are involved in cell chromatin structure and DNA expression. Western diets high in fat induce hyperlipidemia, insulin resistance and other hormonal imbalances that are linked to alterations in brain calcium and lipid metabolism with susceptibility to various chronic diseases such as stroke. Nutrition and food science research identifies dietary components and lipids to prevent hyperlipidemia and calcium dyshomeostasis connected to neuroendocrine disease by maintaining astrocyte-neuron interactions and reversing hormonal imbalances that are closely associated with NAFLD, stroke and Alzheimer’s disease (AD) in global populations.

Evidence and evaluation in learning technology research
Rhona Sharpe
Research in Learning Technology , 2011, DOI: 10.3402/rlt.v19i1.17102
Abstract: This issue sees the change of name of the journal from ALT-J, Research in LearningTechnology to Research in Learning Technology – The Journal of the Association forLearning Technology. It might seem a small change in the reordering of the title andsubtitle of the journal, but it will require a commitment from all of us involved in thejournal to change our habits of referring to it simply as ‘ALT-J'. The new title reflectsour growing recognition of the importance of research in informing learning technologypractice and the development of policy. The change in title also reflects our understandingof the community who produce and read such research. We hope that theself-explanatory Research in Learning Technology title better represents the aim ofthe journal to publish papers from a broad inter-disciplinary field, which encompassesall sectors of education and industry. Our intention is to be more inclusive to currentand potential authors, reviewers and readers across the world.As we have debated and prepared for this title change, it is

Engagement in learning and development
Rhona Sharpe
Research in Learning Technology , 2009, DOI: 10.3402/rlt.v17i1.10770
Abstract: After the previous special issue on immersive virtual worlds, this issue of ALT-J returns to more familiar territory. The opening paper from Carol Russell continues to build ALT-J's corpus of knowledge around institutional embedding of technology; this time through an evaluation of the effectiveness of a staff development programme. The following four papers all explore the challenge of learner engagement from a variety of different angles: instructional design, student support and the pedagogy of innovative, technology-mediated learning environments. As a relative newcomer to ALT-J it seems to me that the distinctiveness of the journal lies in its ability to bring together such a broad range of work.
