In this article we intend to illustrate how the ASIS (Atlante Sintattico dell’Italia Settentrionale "Syntactic Atlas of Northern Italy") project has been created and developed. We discuss the theoretical, empirical and practical problems that we encountered working on such an enterprise, and the choices we made in order to solve them. We have created a(More)

Main clause wh-questions without V2 is geographically speaking a very widespread phenomenon in Norwegian, absent only in central eastern and southeastern Norwegian dialects. The characteristics of the phenomenon is nevertheless not uniform across the dialects—three descriptive variables can be discerned: (i) whether or not V2 is required, (ii) whether or(More)
The concentration of norepinephrine and the apparent turnover of norepinephrine in the hypothalamus was studied in castrated rats and after the injection of ovarian steroids. Both parameters were found to vary not only with the hormone treatment, but also with the time of the day. Norepinephrine concentration in the anterior hypothalamus of castrated male(More)
The effect of the serotonergic system on glutamic acid decarboxylase (GAD) activity of the preoptic area and the hypothalamus was studied in female rats on the day of proestrus. A circadian rhythm of GAD activity was observed with higher values in rats killed at 1130 h than in rats killed at 1500 h. In rats bearing lesions of the median raphe nucleus (MRn),(More)

The reactivity to NA was studied in vas deferens and atrial preparations from adult rats undernourished at perinatal age. The contractile response on isolated vas deferens was markedly reduced in experimental preparations as compared with controls; however, the maximal contractile response elicited by Ba++ did not differ between them. Furthermore, the(More)
Disruption of mother-pup interaction by pup deprivation induced an increase of glutamate decarboxylase (GAD) activity in the main and accessory olfactory bulbs (OB) of lactating rats. The presentation of pups to deprived mothers with restriction of suckling and tactile interaction decreased GAD activity in the main bulb to the levels of lactating rats. The(More)
Glutamic acid decarboxylase activity in the main and accessory olfactory bulbs throughout the sexual cycle of the rat was studied. The effect of male pheromonal secretion on enzyme activity during proestrus and estrus day was also tested. The enzyme activity showed circadian rhythm during the estrous cycle. This rhythm was disrupted during diestrus-2(More)
Pregnant rats from day 14 of pregnancy and pups were fed a control diet (24% casein) or a deprived diet (8% casein) to obtain a control and a pre- and post-natal protein-deprived group. From 50 days of age, all groups were fed a balanced commercial stock diet for different periods. A significant reduction in body weight was observed in the perinatally(More)
