The aim of this study was to investigate whether the recognition of "self body parts" is independent from the recognition of other people's body parts. If this is the case, the ability to recognize "self body parts" should be selectively impaired after lesion involving specific brain areas. To verify this hypothesis, patients with lesion of the right (right(More)
Growing evidence indicates that the representations of space and time interact in the brain but the exact neural correlates of such interaction remain unknown. Neuroimaging and neuropsychological studies show that processing of temporal information engages a distributed network in the right hemisphere and suggest a link between deficits in spatial attention(More)
OBJECTIVES The economic and psychosocial impacts of Alzheimer's disease (AD) on caregivers are so well documented that they have stimulated socioeconomic regulations that are international in scope. In Italy caregivers have the right to receive economic and psychosocial aid. However, to distribute such aid the needs of caregivers, must be properly assessed.(More)
The disease-free probabilities after 3 to 7 years of follow-up of 180 breast cancers of known doubling times were studied to assess the prognostic significance and clinical implications of the growth characteristics of primary breast cancer. Fast-growing tumours, N+ greater than 3, showed a prognosis significantly worse (P less than 0.01) than that of(More)
Between 1982 and 1990, 321 elderly patients (range 70-92 years, median age 77) with operable breast cancer (T1 in 219, T2 in 77, T3 in one and T4b in 24 patients) and clinically uninvolved axillary nodes underwent surgery without axillary dissection and received adjuvant tamoxifen. All patients had surgery performed under local anaesthesia. Tamoxifen was(More)
Interest in breast cancer in elderly women is growing as a result of the high frequency of cancer in older age groups. We measured tumour concentrations and circulating levels of testosterone, dihydrotestosterone (DHT) and oestradiol in 50 postmenopausal patients: 26 younger than 70 yr (median, 61.5, range 50-69) and 24 older than 70 yr (median, 74.5, range(More)
The visual system is extremely efficient at detecting events across time even at very fast presentation rates; however, discriminating the identity of those events is much slower and requires attention over time, a mechanism with a much coarser resolution [Cavanagh, P., Battelli, L., & Holcombe, A.
