Subjective sleep quality and its related factors were investigated in 869 (530 F, 339 M) 17-year-old adolescents, who were selected from the pupils of state-run secondary schools in the city of Pavia in the north west of Italy. The study was conducted cross sectionally, and it consisted of a questionnaire based survey. One hundred and forty-two subjects(More)
The aim of this study was twofold: 1 - to identify a psychological profile of patients with psychogenic nonepileptic seizures (PNESs) that is possibly distinct from that of subjects affected by epileptic seizures (ESs) alone; 2 - to detect the possible differences between the clinical features and psychological profile of patients affected by PNESs alone(More)
PURPOSE The present study was aimed at evaluating electrocardiographic (ECG) changes associated with partial epileptic seizures without seizure activity secondarily generalized. METHODS We assessed heart rate (HR) changes occurring during 100 partial epileptic seizures, as recorded by ambulatory EEG-ECG in 50 outpatients. Consecutive R-R intervals were(More)
Possibility and necessity measures are commonly defined over Boolean algebras. This work considers a generalization of these kinds of measures over MV-algebras as a possibilistic counterpart of the (probabilistic) notion of state on MV-algebras. Two classes of possibilistic states over MV-algebras of functions are characterized in terms of (generalized)(More)
1. EEGraphic and behavioural effects of ondansetron, a 5HT3 antagonist, have been studied in the rabbit. Subsequently we tested the neurophysiological and behavioural interactions between ondansetron and L-5-HTP induced serotonergic syndrome. 2. The drug produced a dose-dependent (0.001, 0.01, 0.1 mg/kg i.v.) increase in the cortical power density spectrum,(More)
In this paper we present completeness results of several fuzzy logics trying to capture different notions of necessity (in the sense of Possibility theory) for Gödel logic formulas. In a first attempt, based on different characterizations of necessity measures on fuzzy sets, a group of logics, with Kripke style semantics, are built over a restricted(More)
We measured circulating serum and cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) concentrations of B lymphocyte activating factor of the tumour necrosis factor superfamily (BAFF), and determined total and Epstein-Barr virus (EBV)-specific oligoclonal IgG bands (OCBs) in 43 patients with multiple sclerosis (MS), 23 patients with other inflammatory demyelinating neurological(More)
BACKGROUND Acute disseminated encephalomyelitis (ADEM) refers to a monophasic acute multifocal inflammatory CNS disease. However, both relapsing and site-restricted variants, possibly associated with peripheral nervous system (PNS) involvement, are also observed, and a systematic classification is lacking. OBJECTIVE To describe a cohort of postinfectious(More)
