RESEARCH FELLOW POSITION at the BCBL- Basque Center on Cognition Brain and Language (San Sebasti án, Basque Country, Spain)

RESEARCH FELLOW POSITION at the BCBL- Basque Center on Cognition Brain and Language (San Sebasti án, Basque Country, Spain) www.bcbl.eu (Center of excellence Severo Ochoa)The Basque Center on Cognition Brain and Language (San Sebasti án, Basque Country, Spain) offers research fellow positions in three main broad areas or research: (1)-Language, reading and developmental disorders: How language acquisition, comprehension, production, and reading take place in the human brain. Special attention will be paid to language disorders and the development of computerized tools for their early diagnosis and treatment.(2)-Multilingualism and second language learning: The cognitive and brain mechanisms of language acquisition and processing in a second language, taking into consideration the age of acquisition, proficiency and usage. Special attention will be paid to multilingualism within the school system and to the development of new educational technologies for second language learning.(3)- Neurodegeneration, brain damage and healthy aging: Language and Cognition: Early cognitive and brain markers related to language for neurodegenerative diseases (Alzheimer, Parkinson); neural plasticity and language functions through brain stimulation in the awake patient during surgical brain operations; developing of computerized diagnostic and training tools for aphasic patients and neurodegenerative diseases.The Center promotes a rich research environment without su...

Authors: Edman MC, Janga SR, Kakan SS, Okamoto CT, Freire D, Feigenbaum D, Lew M, Hamm-Alvarez SF Abstract Tears are a known source of biomarkers for both ocular and systemic diseases with particular advantages; specifically, the noninvasiveness of sample collection and a unique and increasingly better-defined protein composition. Here, we discuss our rationale for use of tears for discovery of biomarkers for Parkinson's disease (PD). These reasons include literature supporting changes in tear flow and composition in PD, and the interconnections between the ocular surface system and neurons affected in PD. We highl...

ConclusionsBased on these results, we suggest that DSS play a positive effective role in increasing DHA content by up-regulating iPLA2 and 15-LOX, resulting in ameliorating oxidative stress and inflammation and finally ameliorating cognition deficits in APP/PS1 mice.Graphical abstract

CONCLUSIONS The results indicate that, although persons with disabilities can exhibit a wide functional range, they remain at risk of PUs and should be evaluated for proper preventive measures, including support surfaces and wheelchair cushions.

Authors: Kulshreshtha D, Ganguly J, Jog M Abstract Introduction: Autonomic dysfunction is an integral part of Parkinson disease (PD) complex and can be seen both in early and advanced stages. There is a paucity of medicines available to manage autonomic dysfunction in PD and this adds to the considerable morbidity associated with the illness.Areas covered: The pathophysiology and the available therapeutic options of autonomic dysfunction seen in PD are discussed in detail. The potential targets for novel regimens are reviewed and the available literature on the drugs emerging in management of autonomic dysfunction ...

CONCLUSIONS: PD presents a disruption in sensorimotor filter mechanisms and speech disorders, and there is a relationship between these alterations. The correlation between the PPI and PPF with an alteration of the voice in PD subjects contributes toward understanding mechanism underlying the neurophysiological alterations in both processes. Overall, easy and non-invasive tests such as PPI, PPF together with voice analysis may be useful to identify early stages of PD. PMID: 28847285 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Publication date: Available online 27 February 2016 Source:Journal of Applied Biomedicine Author(s): Blanka Klimova, Kamil Kuca The current demographic trend is dramatically changing; particularly the number of older people is rising. This trend of older population causes an increase of aging diseases such as dementia. At present the most frequent type of dementia is Alzheimer's disease, the second most frequent type is vascular dementia, and the third one is dementia with Lewy bodies. These are then followed by Parkinson's disease dementia, frontotemporal dementia/degeneration, and mixed dementia. The purpose of this ...
