Cancer Science,Different sensitivities of senescent breast cancer cells to immune cell‐mediated cytotoxicityAbstract Senescence is a state of growth arrest induced in not only normal cells but also cancer cells by aging or stress, which triggers DNA damage. Despite growth suppression, senescent cancer cells promote tumor formation and recurrence by producing cytokines and growth factors; this state is designated as the senescence‐associated secretory phenotype (SASP). In this study, we examined the...

Reward and avoidance learning in the context of aversive environments and possible implications for depressive symptomsAbstractBackgroundAversive stimuli in the environment influence human actions. This includes valence-dependent influences on action selection, e.g., increased avoidance but decreased approach behavior. However, it is yet unclear how aversive stimuli interact with complex learning and decision-making in the reward and avoidance domain. Moreover, the underlying computational mechanisms...

Arguing Against the Expressive Function of Punishment: Is the Standard Account that Insufficient?AbstractThis paper critically appraises the arguments that have been offered for what can be called 'the expressive function of punishment'. According to this view, what distinguishes punishment from other kinds of non-punitive hard treatment is that punishment conveys a censorial/reprobative message about what the punished has done, and that this expressive function should therefore be accepted as part...

Prioritizing PlatonismAbstractSome see concrete foundationalism as providing the central task for sparse ontology, that of identifying which concreta ground other concreta but aren't themselves grounded by concreta. There is, however, potentially much more to sparse ontology. The thesis of abstract foundationalism, if true, provides an additional task: identifying which abstracta ground other abstracta but aren't themselves grounded by abstracta. We focus on two abstract foundationalist theses—abstract...
