An introductory reflection
Once more, I will deal with the subject of intellectual evolutionary convergence. This time, however, under a new perspective, focused on strategy and results-oriented aspects.March 01, 2016 | Editorial
In May of 2015, I published in this platform an article offering a synthesis of the theory of evolution. In it, I formulated a new concept: NACE (NAture, Culture, Ethics), or the “sociability environment”, that I claimed plays a key role in the evolution processes. With that publication, I intended to put an end to years of research investigating the relationship between biology and economics, within the theoretical framework of evolution; a research that I felt compelled to do by the effects of the global economic and socio-political crisis that began in 2007-2008.January 11, 2016 | Editorial

The increased incidence of neurodegenerative diseases poises an important social problem. The ideal way to fight these diseases, with all of them being characterized by abnormal protein accumulation and progressive neuronal loss, would be to discover their causes and associated biomarkers with which to detect them in their early stages. Unfortunately, these diseases can only be diagnosed in their advanced stages, when large numbers of neurons have been lost. This is why neuron restoration through transplantation is regarded as a reasonable therapeutic approach.August 28, 2015 | New Pathways
