21 p, 2.9 MB Why ruminating ungulates chew sloppily : biomechanics discern a phylogenetic pattern / Zhou, Zupeng (Guilin University of Electronic Technology. School of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering) ; Winkler, Daniela E. (Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz. Institute of Geosciences) ; Fortuny Terricabras, Josep (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Kaiser, Thomas M. (University of Hamburg) ; Marcé Nogué, Jordi (Institut Català de Paleontologia Miquel Crusafont) ; Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona
There is considerable debate regarding whether mandibular morphology in ungulates primarily reflects phylogenetic affinities or adaptation to specific diet. In an effort to help resolve this debate, we use three-dimensional finite element analysis (FEA) to assess the biomechanical performance of mandibles in eleven ungulate taxa with well-established but distinct dietary preferences.

Background and aims- The occurrence of endothelial alterations in the liver and in the splanchnic vasculature of cirrhotic patients and experimental models of liver diseases has been demonstrated. However, the pathological role of the portal vein endothelium in this clinical context is scarcely studied and, therefore, deserves attention. [...]

11 p, 2.7 MB Unveiled electric profiles within hydrogen bonds suggest DNA base pairs with similar bond strengths / Ruiz Blanco, Yasser B. (Universidad Central Marta Abreu de Las Villas) ; Almeida, Y. (University of Hamburg) ; Sotomayor Torres, Clivia M. (Institut Català de Nanociència i Nanotecnologia) ; García, Yamila (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya)
Electrical forces are the background of all the interactions occurring in biochemical systems. From here and by using a combination of ab-initio and ad-hoc models, we introduce the first description of electric field profiles with intrabond resolution to support a characterization of single bond forces attending to its electrical origin.

Somatization processes are usually associated with a lack of insight or with emotional unawareness, especially in adolescents where the ability for self-reflection is beginning to mature. However, the extent to which different levels of insight explain variations in somatization remains understudied. [...]

Traumatic brain injury is a common event where 70%–90% will be classified as mild TBI (mTBI). Among these, only 10% will have a brain lesion visible via CT scan. A triage biomarker would help clinicians to identify patients with mTBI who are at risk of developing a brain lesion and require a CT scan. [...]
