Pulmonary capillary hemangiomatosis (PCH) is an uncommon pulmonary disorder, with variable clinical features depending on which lung structure is affected, and it is usually linked to pulmonary arterial hypertension. Congenital PCH has been very rarely described and, so far, the only causative gene identified is EIF2AK4, which encodes for a translation(More)
To understand language, humans must encode information from rapid, sequential streams of syllables - tracking their order and organizing them into words, phrases, and sentences. We used Near-Infrared Spectroscopy (NIRS) to determine whether human neonates are born with the capacity to track the positions of syllables in multisyllabic sequences. After(More)
The evolution of human languages is driven both by primitive biases present in the human sensorimotor systems and by cultural transmission among speakers. However, whether the design of the language faculty is further shaped by linguistic biological biases remains controversial. To address this question, we used near-infrared spectroscopy to examine whether(More)

We compared maturation of the responses of the rib cage [triangularis sterni (TS)] and abdominal [transversus abdominis (TA)] expiratory muscles with each other and with the responses of the diaphragm (DIA) during hypercarbic and hypoxic stimulation. Studies were performed in anesthetized (urethan and chloralose) piglets of two age groups (< 6 days, n = 10;(More)
We thank the staff at the Neonatology and Obstetrics Departments of the Azienda Ospedaliera Santa Maria della Misericordia for their assistance and to the parents of the newborn participants for their participation. We would like to thank Silvia Benavides-Research Highlights • These findings show that newborn infants encode the edges of multisyllabic(More)
Background. Pneumothorax (PTX) still remains a common cause of morbidity in critically ill and ventilated neonates. At the present time, lung ultrasound (LUS) is not included in the diagnostic work-up of PTX in newborns despite of excellent evidence of reliability in adults. The aim of this study was to compare LUS, chest X-ray (CXR), and chest(More)
