Drugs facilitating GABAergic neurotransmission have been reported to block some behavioral actions of dopaminergic stimulation but not others. The present experiments were performed with the purpose to extend the range of behaviors in which the interaction between GABA and dopamine have been studied. The ability of the GABAB agonist baclofen and the GABA(More)
In this paper, we use a Moore Automata with Binary Stochastic Output Function in order to explore the extensive decision regarding tax evasion made by subjects in experiments run in Chile and Italy. Firstly, we show how an hypothesis about subject behavior is converted into an automaton, and how we compute the probabilities of evading for every state of an(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the production and secretion of interleukin (IL)-6 and vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) mRNA and protein by granulosa luteal cells (GCs) in vivo and in vitro in women with and without endometriosis. DESIGN Prospective study. SETTING A private, university-affiliated assisted reproduction unit and a university center. (More)
BACKGROUND We examined the presence and function of tachykinins and the tachykinin-degrading enzymes neprilysin (NEP) and neprilysin-2 (NEP2) in human spermatozoa. METHODS Freshly ejaculated semen was collected from forty-eight normozoospermic human donors. We analyzed the expression of substance P, neurokinin A, neurokinin B, hemokinin-1, NEP and NEP2 in(More)
BACKGROUND: The main concerns for couples undergoing assisted reproduction treatment using donor gametes are the possibilities of acquiring infectious diseases and of transmitting genetic disorders to the progeny. They are also frequently concerned and interested in the cultural and psychological background of the donors. Our aim was to examine the current(More)
BACKGROUND Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and hepatitis C virus (HCV) serodiscordant couples with the male infected can be helped to have children minimizing the transmission risk. Our aim was to evaluate the results of our assisted reproduction programme for these couples and to develop adequate strategies for their management. METHODS Members of(More)
BACKGROUND In natural conception only a few sperm cells reach the ampulla or the site of fertilization. This population is a selected group of cells since only motile cells can pass through cervical mucus and gain initial entry into the female reproductive tract. In animals, some studies indicate that the sperm selected by the reproductive tract and(More)
The current catalogue of the human proteome is not yet complete, as experimental proteomics evidence is still elusive for a group of proteins known as the missing proteins. The Human Proteome Project (HPP) has been successfully using technology and bioinformatic resources to improve the characterization of such challenging proteins. In this manuscript, we(More)
This paper introduces a methodology to describe and compare the economic relative performance of the hospitality sector of the Italian regions during the period 2000-2004. Dynamics of the hospitality sector of each region is represented by the evolution of its economic efficiency. The investigation involves the following steps: a static Data Envelopment(More)
