Negli ultimi due decenni la ricerca neurologica italiana ha avuto un notevole sviluppo contribuendo considerevolmente alla crescita culturale della Neurologia mondiale. Il Manuale è stato scritto dai neurologi dell’Università Sapienza di Roma, esperti nei diversi settori della Neurologia. Particolare attenzione è stata dedicata agli aspetti diagnostici, clinici e terapeutici delle diverse malattie neurologiche segnalando anche i recenti avanzamenti scientifici. I curatori hanno favorito la coerenza stilistica e l’uniformità nell’approccio alla materia con lo scopo di fornire uno strumento di conoscenza e di consultazione agile ed efficace. Il volume è costituito da 32 capitoli (su argomenti di Neurologia, Neuroradiologia e Neurochirurgia), compresi un capitolo sulla Neuroriabilitazione, uno sulla Neurologia Infantile e uno sui Principi di Psichiatria. Riteniamo che gli ultimi tre capitoli, pur nella loro diversità, siano essenziali per una migliore e completa conoscenza della Neurologia. Il Manuale resta, comunque, uno strumento utile essenzialmente allo studente di Medicina, compresi gli studenti delle Professioni sanitarie. Il massimo spazio è stato dedicato, infatti, ai sintomi di possibile origine neurologica che si incontrano nella pratica clinica generale ed alle patologie neurologiche che il clinico dovrebbe conoscere. Desideriamo ringraziare per la loro dedizione e professionalità tutti gli Autori che han- no contribuito alla stesura del manuale. Sentiamo di voler rivolgere un ringraziamento particolare al Prof. Mario Manfredi per aver contribuito con la stesura del capitolo sui Nervi cranici e per averci concesso la possibilità di utilizzare molte delle illustrazioni presenti nel suo celebre volume di Neurologia. Il manuale “La Neurologia della Sapienza” non è un punto di arrivo, ma di partenza. Il nostro intento è di aggiornare e rendere sempre più completo il volume con successive edizioni. La ricerca, infatti, va avanti e in questa II Edizione sono stati aggiornati la quasi totalità dei capitoli, a dimostrazione della vitalità della comunità scientifica neurologica e della necessità di un aggiornamento costante per clinici e studenti.

Headache disorders are among the most common disorders of the nervous system. They are pandemic and, in many cases, they are recurrent and can accompany the patient for the whole life. These disorders impose a substantial burden on headache sufferers, on their families and on society: the individual impact is measured by the frequency and severity of attacks, while the societal burden is measured in terms of loss of activity at work and school as well as of costs for the health system. As a matter of facts, headaches are ranked in the top ten, and maybe the top five, causes of disability worldwide: they are therefore extraordinarily common. Population-based studies have mostly focused on migraine, which, even if it is the most frequently studied headache disorder, is not the most common . Other types of headache, such as the more prevalent TTH and sub-types of the more disabling chronic daily headache, have so far received less attention and need to be better investigated. This book will provide a useful tool to a wide medical population, who is required specific skills to diagnose and manage these frequent and often disabling disorders .Furthermore, it could also represents a compendium for medical students who are usually introduced to this topic through multidisciplinary university programmes.

The main aim of this book is to show the features of DiQuMASPAB so ware through the description of its graphical interface, by giving special emphasis to all those aspects implemented in the code. DiQuMASPAB, acronym of “Differential Quadrature for Mechanics of Anisotropic Shells, Plates, Arches and Beams”, is a computational code, which can be used for the numerical analysis of doubly curved shells made of innovative materials, using the Generalized Differential Quadrature (GDQ) and the Generalized Integral Quadrature (GIQ) methods. The software can investigate the mechanical behavior of these structures through different approaches and structural theories. In particular, this code allows considering a kinematic expansion characterized by different degrees of freedom for the Equivalent Single Layer (ESL) theories and for each layer when the Layer-Wise (LW) approach is taken into account. As far as the materials are concerned, it is possible to consider different lamination schemes, as well as various distributions of the volume fraction of the constituents for those layers that vary their mechanical properties along the thickness. In addition, the software analyzes structures with variable thickness and characterized by variable mechanical properties that can change point by point. A finite element formulation is also available to investigate the mechanical behavior of plane structures characterized by irregular domains and mechanical discontinuities.

These notes illustrate the basic elements for analysis and design of linear control systems. With 15 chapters and an appendix of 4 sections the notes start from the notion of mathematical model (system), explaining its important role in the study of a phenomenon and how linear models can arise in practice. Through the time and Laplace analysis the behaviour of a linear model is studied in detail.The basic notions of stability, steady-state and transient response and structural properties give a deep insight in the study of the behavior of an abstract model.In this first part of the notes, the emphasis has been put on the analysis of the properties of a linear system. In the second part of these notes the basic model interconnections are studied, in particular the feedback interconnection and its importance in the design of control systems. Different design methodologies (dynamics assignment, root locus, tracking and disturbance compensation) are illustrated in detail with the support of useful criteria (Nyquist criterion, Routh table) and mathematical tools. In the appendix the necessary mathematical tools are reviewed. The arguments are supported by many examples and figures.

The aim of this book is to introduce and explain important physical processes at the heart of the optical properties of semiconductor devices, such as light emitting diodes (LEDs) and semiconductor lasers. It is suitable for a half- semester (or a one-semester) course in Photonics or Optoelectronics at the graduate level in engineering physics, electrical engineering or material science. It offers an advanced analysis of the photo-physics of semiconductors, trying to avoid the use of exceedingly complex formalisms. Particular attention was devoted to offer a clear physical interpretation of all the obtained results. Various worked examples are added throughout all the chapters to illustrate the application of the various formulas discussed in the text.The book covers fundamental aspects of solid state physics, relevant for the calculation and analysis of semiconductor band-structure, and of quantum mechanics of electron-photon interaction. The photo-physics of bulk and quantum well semiconductors are discussed in detail. The final five chapters analyse the physics and properties of important photonic devices: light- emitting diodes (LEDs) and lasers, including Distributed Feedback (DFB) lasers, Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) and Quantum Cascade Lasers. The general philosophy adopted in these chapters is the following: the fundamental physical processes are investigated, rather than the technological characteristics of the devices.

"This is surely a new paradigm for the study of history that will be regarded as revolutionary but which is also well justified. To my knowledge, no other book integrates the study of human history with principles of biological and cultural evolution on such an ambitious scale."--David Sloan Wilson, author of Darwin's Cathedral: Evolution, Religion and the Nature of Society "This is one of the most exciting books I've read in years. It is so accessible, so groundbreaking, so stimulating, so important that I imagine the next generation of historians will be deeply influenced by what Smail has to say here. Simply dazzling."--Lynn Hunt, author of Inventing Human Rights

Spatial neglect is a disorder of space-related behaviour. It is characterized by failure to explore the side of space contralateral to a brain lesion, or to react or respond to stimuli or subjects located on this side. Research on spatial neglect and related disorders has developed rapidly in recent years. These advances have been made as a result of neuropsychological studies of patients with brain damage, behavioural studies of animal models, as well as through functional neurophysiological experiments and functional neuroimaging. The Cognitive and Neural Bases of Spatial Neglect provides an overview of this wide-ranging field of scientific endeavour, providing a cohesive synthesis of the most recent observations and results. As well as being a fascinating clinical phenomenon, the study of spatial neglect helps us to understand normal mechanisms of directing and maintaining spatial attention and is relevant to the contemporary search for the cerebral correlates of conscious experience, voluntary action and the nature of personal identity itself. The book is divided into seven sections covering the anatomical and neurophysiological bases of the disorder, frameworks of neglect, perceptual and motor factors, the relation to attention, the cognitive processes involved, and strategies for rehabilitation. Chapters have been written by a team of the leading international experts in this field. This will be essential reading for neuropsychologists, neurologists, neurophysiologists, cognitive neuroscientists and psychologists.

The book discusses in details the main hardware and firmware fundamentals about micro- controllers. The goal is to present all the concepts necessary to understand and design an embedded system based on microcontrollers. The book discusses on: Binary logic and arithmetic; Embedded-systems basics; Low-end 8-bit microcontrollers by Microchip and STMicroelectronics; On-chip memories, Input/Output ports, peripherals; Assembly instruction sets; EasyPIC evaluation board by MikroElektronika; High-end 32-bit cores by ARM-Cortex; STM32F4 microprocessor by STMicroelectronics; Nucleo board for STM32F4 by STMicroelectronics; Custom developed board. The book is not targeted for just either low-end or high-end microcontrollers. Instead, the book fully describes both, moving from the basics of microcontroller systems, to 8-bit devices and then to the 32-bit ones.In fact, the book targets well-renowned, commercially-available microcontrollers by the microelectronic leaders in the field. As for low-end 8-bit microcontrollers, the book reviews the widely-spread and well-assessed devices by Microchip (the PIC16 family) and by STMicroelectronics (the ST6 family). Instead, as for high-end 32-bit microcontrollers, the book presents the leading-edge M3 and M4 cores by ARM-Cortex and its implementation by STMicroelectronics (the STM32F4 series).The Book is very modular and most Chapters can be used as stand-alone mini text books (e.g., Chapter 3 – “8-bit microcontrollers”, Chapter 5 – “ARM-Cortex architectures”, Chapter 6 – “STM32 microcontroller”). Moreover, Chapter 4 and Chapter 7 provide a very useful insight to electronic circuits employing microcontrollers and on-board components, by means of the EasyPIC v7 board by Mikroelektronika (for PIC microcontrollers) and Nucleo board by STmicroelectronics (for the STM32 ARM-Cortex M4 microcontrollers).
