  • Conceptual metaphors and framing in Cognitive Linguistics

    • Authors: Serena Coschignano
      Abstract: This paper illustrates the essential aspects of Conceptual Metaphor Theory and framing. In particular, it presents an analysis of every-day linguistic expressions whose metaphorical nature may not be immediately recognizable. Furthermore, it discusses the implications of the use of “war” metaphors for the framing of different domains of experience: discussions, the patient-disease relationship, and the emergency situation caused by the Covid-19 pandemic. Finally, it shows how the theoretical paradigm of Cognitive Linguistics has been applied to the critical analysis of public discourse: this is illustrated with examples of the representation of the migrations in Italian press headlines.

  • Against the plausibility of utilitarianism

    • Authors: Andrea Loffi
      Abstract: The aim of this paper is to discuss some highly intuitive thought experiments against the plausibility of utilitarianism in general and the role of suffering in moral reasoning in particular. Accordingly, it will be shown that deontology appears to be a more plausible normative theory. The meta-ethical problem of the role of intuitions in moral reasoning will also be considered.

  • One century after Marian Lydia Shorey, a fleeting star at the inception of
           the long path to the discovery of Nerve Growth Factor

    • Authors: Marco Piccolino; Isabel Murray
      Abstract: This article, the third of a series dedicated to Rita Levi-Montalcini’s and her discovery of the Nerve Growth Factor (NGF), deals with an almost unknown American scientist, Marian Lydia Shorey. In 1909, in her dissertation thesis at the University of Chicago, Shorey reported the results of experiments made on the chick embryo that set the stage for further research leading to the discovery in the 1950s of NGF. Thereafter, this discovery path was marked first by the work first of Viktor Hamburger, afterwards by Rita Levi-Montalcini and Giuseppe Levi, and eventually by the research of Levi-Montalcini and Stanley Cohen in Hamburger’s lab in St. Louis. As we will see, despite the importance of Shorey’s results, she disappeared from the annals of science largely stemming from the personal and social events of a sad life concluded tragically just one century ago, in 1922.

  • The diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease: an update and current

    • Authors: Alfredo Costa; Giulia Perini, Camillo Imbimbo, Lucia Scanu, Matteo Cotta Ramusino
      Abstract:  The chapter of the diagnosis of Alzheimer’s disease (AD), almost unchanged since the early 80’s, has been recognizing over the last years a revival of scientific and clinical  interest, following increasing advances, and currently represents one of the main developing fields of neurological research. In this review we report the most recent evidence in the field, mainly based on the use of neurobiological markers of disease, as well as  the current most debated issues, such as the impact of markers on the diagnostic workup and their incremental diagnostic value with respect to early diagnosis in typical cases and in those characterized by comorbidities or association with brain vascular pathology (mixed forms).

  • The Italian contribution to the anatomo-clinical method and physical
           examination in the history of neurology

    • Authors: Francesco Brigo; Lorenzo Russo, Mariano Martini
      Abstract: In Italy, neurology was constituted as a distinct and autonomous field only at the end of the 19th century. The recent neurological advances made in France were rapidly introduced and widely discussed among the Italian scientific community. The anatomo-clinical method applied by Jean-Martin Charcot (1825–1893) and his pupils to neurological disorders was immediately accepted and further refined by the Italian physicians. This led to important contributions to the physical examination with the description of new signs and tests for the diagnosis of various neurological disorders.

  • Unbiased research is needed for rational translation of essential oils in

    • Authors: Damiana Scuteri; Laura Rombolà, Luigi Antonio Morrone, Shinobu Sakurada, Tsukasa Sakurada, Paolo Tonin, Giorgio Sandrini, Giacinto Bagetta, Maria Tiziana Corasaniti
      Abstract: The use of complementary and integrative therapies is steadily growing though the quality of clinic evidence for the use of essential oils is hampered by several methodological biases. Lack of rigorous methodology in clinical studies with aromatherapy originates poor quality evidence and scientific response to overcome the biases of this field of research is needed. Accordingly, here we display a possible step-by-step preclinical-to-clinical pathway, that was followed for the essential oil of bergamot (BEO), to overcome typical biases of research in the field of essential oils, in order to provide good quality body of evidence.
