Capa da Revista Foods, Volume 11, Issue 5 (Mar 2022)Neuroprotection is a need that remains unmet in treating chronic neurodegenerative disorders, despite decades of extensive research. To find new neuroprotective compounds, extracts of Himanthalia elongata (L.) S.F.Gray and of Eisenia bicyclis (Kjellman) Setchell were obtained through subcritical water extraction applying a four-step temperature gradient. The fractions obtained were screened against brain enzymes involved in neurodegenerative etiology, namely in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases, and against reactive oxygen and nitrogen species, all contributing factors to the progression of neurodegeneration. Results showed no significant enzyme inhibition but strong radical scavenging activities, particularly in the fourth fraction, extracted at the highest temperature (250 °C), highlighting their ability to retard oxidative and nitrosative stresses. At higher temperatures, fractions were composed of phenolic compounds and Maillard reaction products, a combination that contributed to their antioxidant activity and, consequently, their neuroprotective properties. All fractions were evaluated for the presence of iodine, 14 organochlorine and 7 organophosphorus pesticides,

and pharmaceuticals used in Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s diseases (14), psychiatric drugs (8), and metabolites (8). The fractions studied did not present any of the screened contaminants, and only fraction 1 of E. bicyclis should be used with caution due to iodine content.

Capa da revista Psychoanalytic Psychologyinvolved in alliance variations between dyads and over time. In this study, these findings are extended by examining therapist, client, and combined attachment dimensions as moderators of the association between ECE and working alliance. Forty-four assessments from the first 10 psychotherapy sessions of 12 independent dyads were examined. The ECE dimension of reflection/conjecture was positively associated with the alliance bond and total score in therapeutic dyads that differed more in attachment. Possible in-session dynamics at stake are discussed.
