Riletture teoriche III

Enza Biagini
This article is a kind of deferred review of a comment made in the debates on the “reform” of the field of literary historiography, published in the Romanic Review from 1926 to 1929. As a lively international forum edited by Philippe Adrien Van Tieghem, Paul’s son – who was the author of the renowned 1903 “manual”, Littérature comparée –, it also compared the “new methodological tendencies” discussed by eminent scholars, such as Spingarn, Magendie, Mornet,...

Records of introduced stripe-necked terrapins (Mauremys species) in Italy

Mattia Panzeri, Emiliano Mori, Giuseppe Mazza & Mattia Menchetti
Freshwater turtles belong to the most popular pets and are often introduced outside their native range. Some species are highly invasive and may compete with native species. Three Mauremys species are naturally distributed in the Mediterranean region, but none is native to Italy. In this work we summarize records of Mauremys spp. in Italy. Records exist for 9 regions, but there are no verified breeding records. Reproduction could have happened in southern Tuscany for M....

Cosa sappiamo circa l’efficacia della LIM nel contesto scolastico?

Ilaria Salvadori
Il presente contributo si sofferma sulle evidenze relative all’efficacia della lavagna interattiva multimediale nel contesto didattico, allo scopo di individuare potenzialità e rischi connessi al suo impiego. La letteratura internazionale presa in considerazione mostra una serie di affordances comprovanti una sostanziale utilità della LIM nell’insegnamento e apprendimento con esempi di esperienze didatticamente valide, in modo particolare per la lingua straniera inglese. Tuttavia, questi studi sono stati di tipo prevalentemente qualitativo e non sono emerse prove...

Histotopographic study of the human breast tissue

Veronica Macchi, Andrea Porzionato, Cesare Tiengo, Diego Guidolin, Carla Stecco, Gloria Sarasin, Anna Rambaldo, Andrew Maidment, Predrag Bakic & Raffaele De Caro
Breast tissue simulation is of importance for developing anthropomorphic phantoms used for preclinical testing or optimization of imaging systems or image analysis methods. Recently a new breast anatomy simulation method performs a direct calculation of the Cooper’s ligaments (i.e., the borders between simulated adipose compartments), using arbitrary selected values for the size of adipose lobuli and the thickness of the fibrous septa (Cooper’s ligaments) enveloping these lobuli. The aim of the present study was to...

Impact of drought on flowering, yield and quality parameters in diverse genotypes of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.)

R. Sivakumar & S. Srividhya
The effect of drought stress on flowering, yield and quality of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) genotypes was investigated under field conditions in rainout shelter. The drought condition was imposed on the first day after trans-planting based on field capacity of soil. Experimentation was undertaken with ten genotypes adopting Factorial Randomized Block Design with three replications and two treatments viz., 1.0 IW/CPE and 0.5 IW/CPE field capacity. As the stress increased from 100% field capacity to 50%...

Co-sleeping e bedsharing: considerazioni di fondo su una pratica senza controindicazioni né scadenze

Gabriella Falcicchio
Negli ultimi anni c’è stato un forte incremento di ricerche scientifiche relative ai neonati e al sonno infantile, e oggi possiamo affermare che non ci sono contraddizioni in relazione al co-sleeping, chiamato anche bed-sharing quando il bambino non dorme solo nella stessa camera dei genitori ma anche nello stesso letto della mamma, e possibilmente anche del papà. Studi svolti nel campo delle neuroscienze, dell’antropologia e della psicologia rilevano che un co-sleeping sicuro, svolto con “alto...

The Role of Tactility in the Constitution of Embodied Experience

Edoardo Fugali
In this paper I aim at highlighting the role touch plays in comparison to other sensory modalities both in our apprehension of reality and in the development of our bodily selfawareness. I will try to discuss above all the latter topic by showing that touch enjoys an unique status among the senses because of the coincidence between its bodily organ – the flesh – and its material sensory medium. For this essential link with the...

Parallelism between central and enteric nervous system damage in experimental parkinsonism

Antuela Matarangasi, Larisa Ryskalin, Chiara Pizzanelli, Antonio Pellegrini, Gianfranco Natale & Antonio Paparelli
Parkinson’s disease (PD) is a neurodegenerative condition which affects dopaminergic neurons of the substantia nigra (SN), leading to a movement disorder. Non motor alterations occur in several viscera, in particular the gastrointestinal tract. In 9-week old C57BL mice we examined the effects of the parkinsonism-inducing neurotoxin 1-methyl, 4-phenyl, 1,2,3,6,-tetrahydropyridine (MPTP, administered either acutely or chronically) in SN and striatum, as well as in duodenum. Motor tests (open field and PaGE) were performed. One week after...

Potato response to potassium application rates and timing under semi-arid conditions

F. Karam, R. Massaad, S. Skaf, J. Breidy & Y. Rouphael
A two-year experiment (2004-2005) was conducted at Tal Amara Research Station in the Bekaa Valley of Lebanon to evaluate the influence of progressive application of K rates and application timing on yield, yield components and tuber quality of potato (Solanum tuberosum L. cv. Agria). Four levels of potassium (0 (K0), 75 (K75), 150 (K150), and 225 (K225) kg K2O ha-1) and two application timings (tuber initiation and tuber bulking stages) were used in a split-plot...

No evidence for conspecificity between two high Andes Liolaemus lizards (Squamata: Liolaemidae)

Daniel Pincheira-Donoso
The remarkable taxonomic, ecological and geographic diversity achieved by the South American lizard genus Liolaemus has inspired persistent debate about species boundaries and the reliability of phenotypic predictors/indicators of reproductive isolation between species (i.e., signatures of speciation). Many aspects of these debates remain unsettled and part of the diversity of the genus remains under controversy. Factors such as small samples, or lack of molecular data to quantify genetic differences between species can be regarded as...

The morphological look of the plantar surface in the young soccer players

Simone Mantini, Antonello Ciccarelli & Maurizio Ripani
Introduction. The plantar support and its modifications are widely studied because of their bearing on posture (Eils E et al., 2004). In particular, past studies have focused on the support modification during specific athletic tasks to highlight the eventual correlations between foot type and the most frequent sport injuries, due to intrinsic and extrinsic components that involve the structural and functional dynamics that act on the plantar vault during static and dynamic condition. These studies...

Sensi, immaginazione e intelletto. Un’analisi delle forme conoscitive nel De origine rerum praedicamentaliu

Andrea Colli
De origine rerum praedicamentalium is generally known as a work of categorical ontology; nevertheless, the fact that Dietrich of Freiberg attributed to the intellect a peculiar constitutive function bring us to a whole rethinking of the gnoseological thought. With this regard, the analysis of the imagination and of the perception proposed in the last chapter of the work consents to find out clearly the purposes pursued by Dietrich with this peculiar noetic concept. Keywords: Dietrich...

A. Luvisi, D. Rizzo, L. Stefani, A. Panattoni & A. Materazzi
In order to evaluate the health status of Calla and Peruvian lily in Tuscan nurseries, 18 viruses belonging to six families and one unassigned virus were assayed. Tests were carried out on 90 Zantedeschia aethiopica plants and 48 Alstroemeria spp. plants collected from 12 Tuscan nurseries in two years, via RT-PCR tests. Z. aethiopica was mainly affected by viruses belonging to the Potyviridae family, with the main infection caused by Dasheen mosaic virus (DsMV) and...

Caratteristiche fondiarie e sostenibilità globale in agricoltura: un’esplorazione in Campania

Paolo Cupo & Rinalda Alberta Di Cerbo
This paper aims to assess the state of the agricultural global sustainability and the role that, with respect to the objective, can develop the characteristics of the land factor. The results show, at farm level, a trade-off between environmental and socio-economic sustainability in terms of altitude, of some productive potential of the land and in correspondence with an enlargement of the farm size. Moreover, the land factor plays a potential role also in terms of...

Osteomorphometry of the bones of the thigh, crus and foot in the New Zealand white rabbit (Oryctolagus cuniculus)

Itopa E. Ajayi, James C. Shawulu, Tags S. Zachariya, Sanusi Ahmed & Adah B.M.J.
The morphology and morphometry of the bones of the thigh, crus and foot of ten adult New Zealand white rabbits were investigated to outline the peculiarities of the species and attempt to establish a morpho-functional paradigm. The femur, tibia-fibular, tarsus, metatarsals and digits of the right and left limbs were extracted and properly macerated. Gross observations of the femur revealed the presence of three trochanters. The greater trochanter was considerably higher than the head of...

Zero-area photons: a brief but intense interaction between light and matter

Marco Bellini & Alessandro Zavatta
The temporal shape of single photons can be profoundly altered by making them interact with the atoms of a gas. This could very soon make it possible to use them to transmit and store information in a much more secure and efficient way.
