Return on Scientific Investment – RoSI: a PMO dynamical index proposal for scientific projects performance evaluation and management

Cristofer André Caous, Birajara Machado, Cora Hors, Andrea Kaufmann Zeh, Cleber Gustavo Dias, Edson Amaro Junior

DOI: 10.1590/S1679-45082012000200017

Objective:To propose a measure (index) of expected risks to evaluate and follow up the performance analysis of research projects involving financial and adequate structure parameters for its development.METHODS:A ranking of acceptable results regarding research projects with complex variables was used as an index to gauge a project performance. In order to implement this method the ulcer index as the basic model to accommodate the following variables was applied: costs, high impact publication, fund raising, and patent registry. The proposed structured […]

Ultrastructural transneuronal degeneration study of axonal elements within the paratrigeminal nucleus in sinoaortic deafferented rats

Cristofer André Caous, Ricardo Luís Smith, Edna Freymuller Haapalainen, Charles Julian Lindsey

DOI: 10.1590/S1679-45082012000200006

Objective:Morphological study that searched to authenticate the presence of sinoaortic baroreceptor inputs within the dorsolateral medullary nucleus under electron microscopy analysis.METHODS:After a 5-day survival period, 9 baroreceptor-denervated rats deeply anaesthetized with equithesin were transcardially perfused and their brains were histologically processed.RESULTS:The neuronal cytoarchitecture of the paratrigeminal nucleus comprehends afferent projections from other nuclei that have a distributive character regarding visceral and nociceptive functions in the cardiovascular reflex integration response.CONCLUSION:The medial portion of the nucleus receives afferent projections of the rostral […]
