Abstract: Taken together, these observations offer direct evidence that this germinal region is not only organized differently but contains cells with astrocytic characteristics that function as neural stem cells. Considering the size of the human lateral ventricular system, this work suggests that a substantial number of neural stem cells exist in the adult brain throughout life. Understanding the organization of the adult human SVZ represents a necessary first step in understanding the cellular proliferation, precursor migration, and neurogenic niche of the largest known germinal region in the adult human brain-a foundation on which to develop novel neuroregenerative therapies.

Castaneda-Torres, J.D.",,"2003",,"Objective. To analize perceived meanings of masculinity and power related to sexual violence among adolescents. Material and Methods. A qualitative study was carried out between 1998 and 2000 in the metropolitan area of Guadalajara, Mexico, among 155 junior high and high school male/female students. Information was collected from 12 focal groups in two-hour sessions. Data collection instruments included: interviews, observation, and instruction guides. Data were recorded using notes and tape recordings. Oral and written information was transcribed, categorized, and coded, in order to construct matrixes and interpret results. Results. Symbolic explanatory concepts related with rape included: constructivism vs. naturalism, heteronomous moral posture, and early exchange towards respect and human rights. Females were perceived as the real and potential victims. Males were perceived as violent by nature or under challenge, and prone to be victimized only if they were children, unmanly, or homosexual. Analysis objects included motives, power, female refusal, accusation, consequences, management, and prevention. Conclusions. Sexual violence is symbolized within the realm of explanatory and moral controversy. The ideological values of masculinity legitimate both legal and judiciary impunity. Social meanings and adolescent participation should be considered in research and interventions.",,,,,,,,,"","",,,,,,"SUPPL. 1",,"Salud Publica de Mexico",,"S44

The Pacific coast in southern México is no exception, because there is firm evidence of the effects of past large tsunamis. Here we present results from computer-aided modeling of the March 28, 1787- "San Sixto" earthquake and tsunami, and focus on the regions of Acapulco, Corralero, Jamiltepec, and Tehuantepec, located along the Guerrero-Oaxaca coast. The theoretical waveforms suggest wave heights in excess of 4 m and 18 m at specific locations in Acapulco and Corralero, respectively, and wave heights of at least 2 m at locations in Jamiltepec and Tehuantepec. From our modeling results and based on historical documents and the topography of the area, we conclude that these wave heights would have been sufficient to cause inundations that in the case of Acapulco were restricted to several meters inland, but in other areas like Corralero reached at least 6 km inland. Our results are consistent with published and unpublished damage reports that attest to the hazards associated with great earthquakes and tsunamis along the subduction zone in Mexico " Springer Science+Business Media B.V. 2008.
