Validity and reliability of food security measures.
This paper reviews some of the existing food security indicators, discussing the validity of the underlying concept and the expected reliability of measures under reasonably feasible conditions. The main objective of the paper is to raise awareness on existing trade-offs between different qualities...
Mainstreaming nutrition metrics in household surveys-toward a multidisciplinary convergence of data systems.
Since the 2008 food price crisis, food and nutrition security are back on the global development agenda, with particular emphasis on agricultural pathways toward improved nutrition. Parallel efforts are being promoted to improve the data and metrics for monitoring progress toward positive nutritiona...
A nutrition/health mindset on commercial Big Data and drivers of food demand in modern and traditional systems.
We examine digital commercial marketing data through the lenses of the four A's of food security (availability, accessibility, affordability, appeal) using advanced consumer choice analytics for archetypal traditional (fresh fruits and vegetables) and modern (soft drinks) product categories. We demo...
Influencing circadian and sleep-wake regulation for prevention and intervention in mood and anxiety disorders: what makes a good homeostat?
We may be able to compensate for the inability to study living brain tissue through the study of homeostatic mechanisms in fibroblasts, pluripotent human cells, and mitochondria and determine how homeostasis is disturbed at the level of these peripheral tissues through exogenous stress. We also emph...

THE ATTRACTIONS OF PROTEINS FOR SMALL MOLECULES AND IONS
The importance of dietary protein for muscle health in inactive, hospitalized older adults.
Dietary protein and amino acids are necessary for overall human health. Insufficient protein intake induces a negative protein balance with adverse outcomes such as muscle atrophy and functional decline--outcomes that are worsened in older adults. Furthermore, during inactivity, such as bed rest/hos...
Perceiving the passage of time: neural possibilities.
Although the study of time has been central to physics and philosophy for millennia, questions of how time is represented in the brain and how this representation is related to time perception have only recently started to be addressed. Emerging evidence subtly yet profoundly challenges our intuitiv...
