In order to provide information on the morphological features of both human midpalatal suture and periodontal ligament, bioptic samples were obtained from patients whose age was between 10 and 30 years. The samples were embedded in epoxy resin, sectioned, stained with toluidine blue and observed by light microscopy. The periodontal ligament and the(More)
Biopsy samples of the human midpalatal suture, obtained from patients (age range: 10 and 30 yrs), were embedded in resin, cut with ultramicrotome and analyzed at light microscopy. The sutural connective tissue was made up of fibroblasts, collagen fibers, capillaries and nerve fibers. The sutural bone was made up of lamellar and bundle bone which alternated(More)
S-100 proteins represent a group of closely related acidic, calcium binding proteins originally isolated from the mammalian nervous system and later detected in non-neural cell types and in a wide variety of vertebrate and invertebrate species. The present study used immunochemical and immunohistochemical methods to extend the investigation of S-100 during(More)
Experimental economics focuses on eliciting preferences, studying individuals one at a time to take into account their heterogeneity. Experiments have the appealing property of collecting enough observations to perform such an analysis. In real word, and in natural experiments, individuals cannot be observed according to experimenters' needs. We propose a(More)
Data on contestants' choices in Italian Game Show Affari Tuoi are analysed in a way that separates the effect of risk attitude from that of beliefs concerning the amount of money that will be offered to contestants in future rounds. The importance of belief-formation is confirmed by the estimation of a mixture model which establishes that the vast majority(More)
The role and extent of sexual orientation discrimination is the focus of a growing body of literature in economics and in other social sciences, across a wide range of social domains. This work aims at providing a holistic approach to the assessment of lesbian, gay and bisexual (LGB) people's life experience by developing a synthetic index of social(More)
Technovit 7200 VLC is an acrylic resin formulated for embedding undecalcified hard tissues which are prepared for light microscopy according to a cutting-grinding technique. To employ this resin for embedding and cutting soft tissues by ultramicrotomy, we carried out a qualitative study on biopsies of canine gingival mucosa using light and transmission(More)
We have developed a procedure for light microscopic investigation of undecalcified and unembedded bone sections. Biopsy samples of human metatarsus and femur and rat femur were fixed in aldehydes and sectioned with a cutting machine equipped with a diamond saw blade. Free sections 100-150 microns thick, stained with toluidine blue and von Kossa, did not(More)
Resin embedding of human teeth for light and transmission electron microscopic studies becomes difficult without previous decalcification. The limited and slow infiltration of the resin into hard tissues may cause problems during preparation and observation of the samples. Moreover the type of resin that is used may affect the morphologic preservation of(More)
