A detailed and comprehensive understanding of seed reserve accumulation is of great importance for agriculture and crop improvement strategies. This work is part of a research programme aimed at using Brachypodium distachyon as a model plant for cereal grain development and filling. The focus was on the Bd21-3 accession, gathering morphological,(More)
A single trial technique has been used for the analysis of neuromagnetic signals. This method, applied to evoked magnetoencephalograms, permitted us to evaluate the dynamics of brain responses under repetitive somatosensory stimulation. Two different phenomena have been investigated: synchronized spontaneous activity (SSA), elicited by bursts of stimuli at(More)
The study of the responsivity of the human brain at different rates of sensory stimulation has provided several pieces of information on brain functionality. The new analysis technique used in this study permits us to investigate the dynamics of these responses and to obtain a larger amount of statistical data to allow for fine frequency discrimination.(More)
The faint body image embedded into the Turin Shroud has not yet explained by science. We present experimental results of excimer laser irradiation (wavelengths 308 nm and 193 nm) of a raw linen fabric and of a linen cloth, seeking for a possible mechanism of image formation. We achieved a permanent coloration of both linens as a threshold effect of the(More)
