Gut-Brain Interactions in Visceral Pain and the Regulation of Food Intake.

KU Leuven

Neurohumoral gut-brain signals are part of an integrated interoceptive system which is continuously signaling homeostatic information to the brain; normally this remains largely unperceived. Dysfunctional gut-brain signaling has been implicated in both functional (i.e. unexplained) gastrointestinal (GI) disorders, characterized by visceral pain, and food intake disorders, such as obesity. Both groups of conditions are highly prevalent and associated with low quality of life and high healthcar...

Gypsum late efflorescence on clay brick masonry (vergrauung).

KU Leuven

The presence of gypsum-type efflorescences appeared more and more frequently during the last decades, this often more than one year after the completion of the masonry. Gypsum is moderately water-soluble and therefore these gypsum late (GL) efflorescences cannot be removed without intensive cleaning techniques. There is in general a lack of understanding about the genesis and the mechanisms of formation for this type of efflorescence. Besides this more fundamental question about the phenomeno...

Project

Habit and the Nature of Second Nature

KU Leuven

The power of habit is pervasive in human behavior, thinking, and culture. Given the ubiquity of habit within human experience, it is puzzling that philosophers have seldom attempted to understand the nature of habit. As Aristotle famously claimed, habit constitutes our second (human) nature. What is the nature of second nature? What is the difference between habitual behavior and spontaneous acts? Once acquired, can habits be overcome? The aim of my dissertation is to answer these and other r...

Project

Habitatcharacteristics and pollution as driving factors for the occurence of macroinvertebrates. Historic

University of Antwerp

Macroinvertebrates differ in their sensitivity for pollution. Effects caused by pollution can be detected in many parameters like acute mortality, behavioral changes and growth decrease. Of some macroinvertebrate species it is shown that they can actively detect and avoid pollution. On sites were no pollution occurs, some taxa can however still be absent. Next to pollution, structural characteristics of the ecosystem also influence the distribution and composition of the population. The aim o...

Project

Habituating Selves, An Investigation of the Plasticity of Habit

KU Leuven

Since Aristotle, the intimate bond between the constitution of the subject and habit has been an object of philosophical scrutiny. Recent discoveries related to the morphogenesis and resilience of the subject undertaken by Catherine Malabou in the field between neuroscience and philosophy have given rise to a renewed awareness of the ambiguous nature of habit as both automatized repetition and constructive adaptation. In light of Malabou#s definition of the concept of "plasticity" i.e. the ca...

Heat transfer between solids and liquids through molecular brushes

KU Leuven

This project is based on the empirical observation that mono-molecular layers of single-stranded DNA on a solid substrate are capable of substantially restricting the heat transfer from the solid substrate to the surrounding liquid. This is in contrast to double-stranded DNA (a #good# heat conductor) and allows the detection of point mutations in a purely #thermometric# way. Moreover, several other bio-analytical applications of this technique have been documented. These are very recent devel...

Hemichannels as novel pharmacological targets in liver fibrosis

Vrije Universiteit Brussel

Hemichannels (HCs) are essential components of gap junctions, which connect the cytoplasm of neighboring cells. Accumulating evidence suggests that HCs also form a communication pathway, albeit between the cytoplasm and extracellular environment. Transmembrane connexin (Cx) and pannexin (Panx) proteins are the building stones of HCs. In the liver, hepatocytes typically express Cx32, though in several liver pathologies, including liver fibrosis, they switch to a Cx43-based mode. Moreover, a nu...

Hippocampal neuropeptide-glutamate-serotonin reciprocal interactions, relevance for limbic epilepsy and depression. Historic

Vrije Universiteit Brussel

Epilepsy remains a poorly treated and major neurological disorder. Over 1 million patients in the U.S. alone have uncontrolled seizures with complex-partial seizures from temporal or frontal origin being particularly intractable. There is thus a real need for the search of innovative anti-epileptic drugs with original mechanisms of action and few side effects. Some neuropeptides and peptide receptor antagonists might fulfil these 2 criteria and therefore we would like to investigate the ant...

Hippocampal neuropeptides as neurobiological targets in preclinical drug development for psychomotor epilepsy Historic

Vrije Universiteit Brussel

Introduction The epilepsies remain major neurological disorders and hit more than 1% of the world-wide population. Psychomotor epilepsy of temporal lobe origin is especially hard to control despite the introduction of almost 10 new generation anti-epileptic drugs (AEDs) in the last 10 years. Their anti-epileptic activity was mainly defined by acute seizure models such as the maximal electroshock and pentylenetetrazol (i.e. GABAA antagonist) seizure tests. As a result, their main mechanism...

The proposed research will map the network of poet and orientalist Laurence Binyon, with special interest for his Belgian contacts. Binyon (1869-1943) was an influential figure in Great-Britain at the time. His two interests, Northern European art and Asian art, were to be the basis for his links with artists all over the world. To map those links we will use the histoire croisée approach, an methodology which is still very new in literary studies.

There are 3 biological questions in the program. 1. How can different signals work together in the control of cell elongation? 2. In which cell types are these signals primarily acting? 3. What is the action mechanism of ethylene at the level of the cell wall and are these mechanisms modulated by auxin transport? We will tackle these 3 key questions by combinen molecular genetic, physiological and cell biological approaches.

Hormonal interactions in elongation growth of Arabidopsis Recently ended

Ghent University

Many plant hormones regulate the elongation of plant cells and organs. They include auxins, gibberellins, brassinosteroids and ethylene. Since the effects of these hormones have a phenotypic overlap, it is probable that they interact at the molecular level. The aim of this project is to unravel this cross-talk between hormones, that eventually lead to regulation of elongation in seedlings.

Project

Hormonal regulation of organ growth in Arabidopsis thaliana.

University of Antwerp

Hormone action was until recently mainly viewed as an organ-specific process. Based on recent findings for auxins, gibberellins and brassinosteroids, we speculate that cell type specificity plays a general role in hormone action mechanisms. In this project, cell type specificity of ethylene action will be addressed by using cell type specific promoters driving EBF1 and EBF2 (EIN3 binding F-box 1 and 2), two regulators of the prevalence of the EIN3/EIL1 proteins, positive regulators of ethylen...

Hormone balance and physiological background as a starting point to improve fruit setting in integrated pear production. Historic

University of Antwerp

Since the use of the chemical growth regulator CCC has been omitted for pear, the optimal balance between vegetative and generative growth of pear trees is impaired. Fruitsetting is the best controller of vegetative growth. Therefore, there is a trend to control fruitsetting via Gibberellin treatment. A new growth retardant, Prohexadione-Calcium, a blocker of the GA biosynthesis, has been developed. Systematic treatment by this GA blocker of exogenous GA's blindly interferes with the natural...
