Open Access Plus Article in the journal Current Aging Science


The article entitled Age-Related Deficits in Conjunctive Representation of Complex Objects in the journal Current Aging Science, 2014, 7, 214-219, is now open for all to view and access.

Current Aging Science publishes frontier review and experimental articles in all areas of aging and age-related research that may influence longevity. This multidisciplinary journal will help in understanding the biology and mechanism of aging, genetics, pathogenesis, intervention of normal aging process and preventive strategies of age-related disorders. The journal publishes objective reviews written by experts and leaders actively engaged in research using cellular, clinical, molecular, and animal models, including lower organism models (e.g., yeast, Caenorhabditis elegans and Drosophila). In addition to the affect of aging on integrated systems, the journal also covers original articles on recent research in fast emerging areas of adults stem cells, brain imaging, calorie restriction, immunosenescence, molecular diagnostics, pharmacology and clinical aspects of aging. Manuscripts are encouraged that relate to developmental programming of aging and the synergistic mechanism of aging with cardiovascular diseases, obesity and neurodegenerative disorders.


Active 3 Months Free Trial at the university Istituto Superiore di Sanità (NIH)

Istituto Superiore di Sanità (NIH), Italy

The Istituto Superiore di Sanità (National Institute of Health), also ISS, is an Italian public institution that, as the leading technical-scientific body of the Italian National Health Service (Servizio Sanitario Nazionale), performs research, trial, control [disambiguation needed], counseling, documentation and training for public health.

Trace the history of a research institution, which was founded in 1934 with 40 staff (today there are about 2,000) through the images, it is certainly more interesting and less boring than reading pages and texts that are likely to be self-congratulatory. Among the many interesting points that trace the milestones of research at the Institute, the construction of the first electron microscope Italian, the campaign to defeat malaria in the Pontine plain, Nobel laureates Chain and Bovet at work in their laboratories, the “factory” for the realization of penicillin, the collection of historical instruments.

Book Review: Obesity and Disease in an Interconnected World: A Systems Approach to Turn Huge Challenges into Amazing Opportunities

“This book is a must read for physicians and patients alike. It covers not only a broad range oftopics, including obesity, non-alcoholic fatty liver disease, cardiovascular disease, and metabolic syndrome, but it also provides information on how these issues are interconnected. The book tries to explain the issues in a way that a non-medical professional can understand it, making it a great reference for patients looking to gain a basic understanding of the pathophysiology of obesity and how to manage it.”
