  • Challenges for implementing a global mental health agenda in Brazil: The "silencing" of culture. [Journal Article]
    Transcult Psychiatry. 2020 Feb; 57(1):57-70.Ortega F, Wenceslau LD
  • Since its emergence in 2007, Global Mental Health has been a growing and polemic area of study, research and practice in mental health worldwide. Despite having a significant endogenous academic production and innovative policy experiences, the Brazilian mental health field and its actors make few references to, and scarcely dialogue with, the Global Mental Health agenda. This article explores an…
  • Evidence of extrinsic factors dominating intrinsic blood host preferences of major African malaria vectors. [Journal Article]
    Sci Rep. 2020 Jan 20; 10(1):741.Orsborne J, Mohammed AR, … Yakob L
  • One of the key determinants of a haematophagous vector's capacity to transmit pathogens is its selection of which host to secure a blood meal from. This choice is influenced by both intrinsic (genetic) and extrinsic (environmental) factors, but little is known of their relative contributions. Blood fed Anopheles mosquitoes were collected from a malaria endemic village in Ghana. Collections were c…
  • Queer Anthropophagy: Building women-centered LGBT + space in Northeastern Brazil. [Journal Article]
    J Lesbian Stud. 2020; 24(3):240-254.Nicholus S
  • Through an ethnographic study of a party for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT)+ women, this article examines contemporary sociospatial practices LGBT+/queer women utilize to build community during the festas juninas in Natal, Rio Grande do Norte. While these popular festivals associated with the rural space of the Brazilian Northeast may seem to replicate colonial, religious, and tra…
  • The Psychopathological Profile of Cannibalism: A Review of Five Cases. [Case Reports]
    J Forensic Sci. 2019 Sep; 64(5):1568-1573.Raymond S, Léger AS, Gasman I
  • In today's society, human cannibalism is extremely rare and represents an unthinkable act of violence. Scientific literature on the topic is sparse due to significant methodological problems, such as collecting enough data and generating unbiased analyses. The purpose of this article is to illustrate some psychodynamic aspects of cannibalism. After a review of the literature, we will present and …
  • Assessing the calorific significance of episodes of human cannibalism in the Palaeolithic. [Historical Article]
    Sci Rep. 2017 04 06; 7:44707.Cole J
  • Episodes of Palaeolithic cannibalism have frequently been defined as 'nutritional' in nature, but with little empirical evidence to assess their dietary significance. This paper presents a nutritional template that offers a proxy calorie value for the human body. When applied to the Palaeolithic record, the template provides a framework for assessing the dietary value of prehistoric cannibalistic…
  • [The possible causes of the tragedy of "Port Famine" in the Strait of Magellan]. [Historical Article]
    Rev Med Chil. 2010 Nov; 138(11):1456-60.Espinoza G JP, Espinoza G R
  • The attempts to colonize the Strait of Magellan soon followed the discovery of this route. PeDro Sarmiento de Gamboa, a Spanish sailor, established human settlements to fortify those lands and control the transit of vessels, especially those of English corsairs, which devastated Chilean and Peruvian coasts. During the summer of 1584, approximately 500 soldiers, artisans, priests, women and childr…
  • [Cannibalism and psychopathology]. [Journal Article]
    Psychiatriki. 2007 Apr; 18(2):173-8.Kontis D, Santa Z, … Kontis K
  • Eating members of one's own species is one of the few remaining taboos in modern human societies. In humans, aggression cannibalism has been associated with mental illness. The objective of this report is to examine the unique set of circumstances and characteristics revealing the underlying etiology leading to such an act and the type of psychological effect it has for the perpetrator. A case re…
  • Black fly (Diptera:Simuliidae) salivary secretions: importance in vector competence and disease. [Review]
    J Med Entomol. 1997 Mar; 34(2):87-94.Cupp EW, Cupp MS
  • When blood-feeding, black flies introduce secretions into the feeding lesion that act in a coordinated manner on the 3 arms of the vertebrate hemostatic system (platelet aggregation, coagulation, and vasoconstriction). Apyrase activity inhibits platelet aggregation and is ubiquitous in the saliva of black flies, although activity per gland varies by species and has a positive association with ant…
  • Four new cytotypes of the onchocerciasis vector blackfly Simulium guianense in Brazil. [Journal Article]
    Med Vet Entomol. 1996 Apr; 10(2):111-20.Charalambous M, Shelley AJ, … Dias AP
  • Simulium (Trichodagmia) guianense is an important Amazonian vector of onchocerciasis. Examination of the polytene chromosome banding patterns of larvae from five sites in Brazil revealed the occurrence of four cytotypes, designated A, B, C and D. The chromosomal standard, Simulium guianense A, occurred at two localities in Goias State (on the Rio Tocantins and Rio Mucambão) where it was the only …
  • Anthropophagy and aggregation behaviour of the sandfly Phlebotomus argentipes in Sri Lanka. [Journal Article]
    Med Vet Entomol. 1990 Jan; 4(1):79-88.Lane RP, Pile MM, Amerasinghe FP
  • The visceral leishmaniasis (VL) vector Phlebotomus argentipes Annandale & Brunetti is widely distributed throughout the Indian sub-continent and S.E. Asia. The absence of VL in areas such as Sri Lanka has been attributed to the zoophilic nature of P.argentipes, since they were not recorded biting man. Field studies on P.argentipes were undertaken in the central highlands of Sri Lanka, near Kandy,…
  • Host feeding patterns of Anopheles culicifacies species A and B. [Journal Article]
    J Am Mosq Control Assoc. 1988 Sep; 4(3):248-51.Joshi H, Vasantha K, … Sharma VP
  • Countercurrent immunoelectrophoresis was used to assay bloodmeals to determine the host specificity of Anopheles culicifacies species A and B, collected from areas in Delhi, Uttar Pradesh and Bihar. Results indicated the predominantly zoophagic nature of species A and B with a relatively higher degree of anthropophagy for species A. Further, the human blood index was found to be related to the pr…
  • [Two cases of homicide from the pre-ceramic neolithic era of Arabia Petraea]. [Case Reports]
    Gegenbaurs Morphol Jahrb. 1987; 133(3):507-37.Röhrer-Ertl O, Frey KW
  • Human remains from Basta 1 (P PN B, 6. Mill. B.C.) and Sabra 1 (Khiamian, 7. Mill. B.C.) were prepared and studied; the results show that Basta 1 was a permanent settlement and Sabra 1 was a temporary summer camp. Both settlements are located in Arabia Petraea. Basta 1, No. 3477: The calvarium of a boy, aged 8 to 9 a, from Basta 1 was studied. The race can be determined as orientalide, according …
