Once the experience of GISSI I was concluded, the as yet unresolved problem of the choice of one fibrinolytic agent in preference to others emerged. In the present study, the authors used echocardiography in order to compare streptokinase with r-TPA in order to limit myocardial damage in acute myocardial infarction in 33 patients, average age 64.6 years. No(More)
The present essay concisely analyses the contemporary neurobiological debate concerning the hypothesis of the “temporal correlation” advanced to solve the perceptual problem of linking different features in a unitary object or visual scene. Although fascinating and grounded on simulations and brain models, in addition to important electrophysiological(More)
This article aims at illustrating the historical circumstances that led Julius Bernstein in 1902 to formulate a membrane theory on resting current in muscle and nerve fibers. It was a truly paradigm shift in research into bioelectrical phenomena, if qualified by the observation that, besides Bernstein, many other electrophysiologists between 1890 and 1902(More)
Acute myocardial infarction in the elderly shows epidemiological and clinical features different from those observed in the same pathology in the young-adult subject. In this study, the authors compare literature data with their experience of 309 subjects aged greater than or equal to 65 years vs. 268 controls. All these patients were hospitalized for acute(More)
In the 19th century progress in communication systems induced Hermann von Helmholtz and Emil du Bois-Reymond to compare nervous fibres to telegraph wires aiming to familiarize the neural net already independently described. Owing to neurophysiological developments, this metaphorical way of speaking collapsed. In the 1820's Edgar Adrian chose the Morse code,(More)
The authors evaluate old patients of both sexes with acute myocardial infarction. They study coronary risk factors, symptomatology onset, infarction site, complications and survival in Intensive Care Unit. The elderly women show significant features in comparison with the male as the particular predictive value of diabetes and hypertension and the greater(More)
