Investigating the properties of light responsive neurons and their networks requires appropriate control of stimulus parameters, such as intensity, spectral composition, spatial and temporal profile. In the present paper, we describe how to build a simple, versatile and low-cost light source for use in visual neuroscience. The light source is a InGaN-based(More)
We have previously reported that compounds dimethyl-substituted on the phenyl ring of N-n-propyl-3-phenylpiperidines (PPEs) have a high (nM) affinity and selectivity toward the D(4) dopamine receptor (D(4) DAR) with m,p-dimethyl PPE (1) having the highest affinity and selectivity. In the present paper we have investigated the role of the methyl substitution(More)
The use of procalcitonin (PCT) as an early marker of infectious episodes in cancer patients is still controversial. We performed a MEDLINE search of peer-reviewed articles published between January 1990 and December 2015, and finally we analysed 15 articles. PCT seems to have a good diagnostic value of infectious episodes in cancer patients and its accuracy(More)
