Discovery of alien water frogs (gen. Pelophylax) in Umbria, with first report of P. shqipericus for Italy

Dario Domeneghetti, Giacomo Bruni, Mauro Fasola & Adriana Bellati
Allochthonous water frogs (gen. Pelophylax) have been repeatedly introduced in several European countries, causing dramatic consequences for the conservation of indigenous taxa. In Italy, invasive populations are known for northern regions, where they were introduced mainly for edible and scientific purposes. Here, we report the first detection of an alien population of water frogs in Central Italy, along the Resina valley (Umbria). Genetic analysis of the mitochondrial ND3 gene polymorphism assigned some specimens to two...

Subsequently we highlight the practical research problems deriving from the transposition of the experimental approach in the domain of human sciences. We offer a brief review of the main fields of political science where the experiment has been adopted. In the second part we analyze three...

Synuclein expression in the lizard Anolis carolinensis

Mattia Toni, Federica De Angelis, Rosa Vaccaro, Arianna Casini & Carla Cioni
The synuclein (syn) family comprises three proteins: alpha-, beta- and gammasyn. In mammals alpha- and beta- syn are primarily expressed in the brain where they are localized in pre-synaptic terminals while gamma-syn is mainly expressed in the peripheral nervous system. In humans, syns are involved in neurodegenerative diseases with high social impact such as Parkinson’s disease and tumors. However, the normal cellular functions of the three syns have not yet been fully clarified. Members of...

Representationalism and Ambiguous Figures

Arianna Uggé
The phenomenon of ambiguous figures raises difficulties for the theories of the content of our visual experience that hold that its phenomenal character is identical to its representational content and wholly nonconceptual. This phenomenon seems to show that there can be a difference in the phenomenal character of two visual experiences, without a difference in their representational nonconceptual content. Firstly, I shall try to illustrate that these “representationalist” theories cannot provide a compelling explanation for...

La collaborazione tra servizi per la prima infanzia e famiglie in Francia e in Italia

Ingrid Natacha Callet
There is now an overwhelming scientific consensus on the importance of a collaboration between family and early childhood services (Brougère, 2005; Bennett, Rayna, 2005). This consensus also explains the omnipresence of this injunction of partnership both in official discourse and in regulatory texts (Brougère, 2005 Musatti et al., 2010). How this collaboration is it translated into the practices? This article investigates the relationships between day care centers and family in early childhood services in two...

Technological Design in a multidisciplinary, sensory, context

Stephen Emmitt
Architecture involves measurable (tangible) and immeasurable (intangible) elements, which makes the pursuit of good architecture a constant challenge for all project contributors. It is often the immeasurable aspects, the intuition and feel for a project and the way in which actors interact, which help to bring about exciting, creative and functional buildings that reflect the best of humanity, time and place. In this article the author explores the role of technological design within an environmentally...

Il bello che cura. Benessere e spazi di accoglienza notturna per persone senza dimora

Cristian Campagnaro & Valentina Porcellana
Looking into the housing services for homelessness leads to think about development of territory, citizens’ welfare, social recovery, reintegration into society and citizenship. Since 2009 the action-research, named “Living in the dorm”, has been investigating how architecture hosts services delivered to homeless people and how users interact with places and products in there. Spaces, pieces of furniture, tools, have been investigated and re-thought as part of the educational work carried out. Attention has been paid...

Action, emotion and embodiment in empathic responses

Gloria Galloni
In the perspective of a study of emotions and mind in adaptive and naturalized terms, the analysis of empathic phenomena assumes a peculiar significance. Putting together neuroscience and philosophy, nowadays it is possible to analyze the neurobiological substrate of empathy and to conceptually redefine empathy. We will talk about some philosophical reflections on empathy and then we will stress that, as in some philosophical theories, recent brain imaging studies reveal the existence of multiple areas...

Physiological and psychological effects of olfactory stimulation with D-limonene

D. Joung, C. Song, H. Ikei, T. Okuda, M. Igarashi, H. Koizumi, B.J. Park, T. Yamaguchi, M. Takagaki & Y. Miyazaki
Although D-Limonene can be considered an important component of nature-based stimuli, the physiological effects of olfactory stimulation with D-Limonene have not been completely clarified by scientific studies. The physiological and psychological effects of olfactory stimulation with D-Limonene were studied measuring heart rate variability (HRV), heart rate, and subjective evaluation using a modified semantic differential method; thirteen Japanese female university students (mean age±SD, 21.5±1.0 years) participated in the study. A concentration of 60 μL of D-Limonene...

Hrabia Zygmunt i „Królowa mórz”. Wenecja w epistolografii Zygmunta Krasińskiego

Iwona Dorota
Count Zygmunt and "The Queens of Seas". Venice in the Epistolography of Zygmunt Krasiński In Zygmunt Krasiński’s correspondence, Italian towns represent a very particular “picture gallery”, characterized by richness of associations and beauty of exemplifications. The most interesting aspect is tracing the development of the poet’s imagination in Venice – a very special emotional and interpretational context for a romantic poet. In accordance with his personal dispositions, Krasiński leads us into “his own Venice”, made...

Immaginario paranoide e potere. Spunti per una riflessione

Giulio M. Chiodi
Esaminato nella sua natura astratta, il potere costituisce un elemento fondamentale di qualsiasi relazione sociale, aprioristicamente non sottoponibile a valutazioni negative. Solo un’analisi che tenga in considerazione il contesto in cui il potere viene esercitato, le relazioni che esso instaura e gli aspetti simbolici sui cui si sorregge, risulta capace di distinguere tra il potere quale modalità fisiologica delle relazioni umane e le sue forme degenerate e patologiche come la paranoia.

The role of virtual reality in improving gait abnormalities

Rocco Salvatore Calabrò, Alessia Bramanti & Ludovico Magaudda
To regain walking after a neurological disorder is considered one of the primary goals of the rehabilitation process, given that gait abnormalities are often disabling, negatively impacting patients’ quality of life. In the last years there has been an intense technological development of robotic devices to overcome such problems. The robotic rehabilitation tools are typically based on the so-called phenomenon of motor learning, resulting from intensive, repetitive, and task-oriented motor activities that require patient’s effort...

The follicle-stimulating hormone receptor (FSHR) is expressed in human sperm and it may be considered as molecular marker of the detrimental effects related to the physiopathology of testicular varicocele

Daniela De Rose, Vittoria Rago, Rocco Malivindi, Maria Clelia Gervasi, Marta Santoro & Saveria Aquila
Localization of the follicle-stimulating hormone receptor (FSHR), has been always closely related to the testis and ovary. FSH/FSHR role in Sertoli cell, has been known, however, the sites of FSH action within the male reproductive system are not resolved yet. Few studies have raised the intriguing possibility that germ cells may exhibit FSHR, all the reports point to Sertoli cells as the exclusive FSH target cells in testis. Besides, the attention has been always paid...
