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.

Risk Factors for Cerebrovascular Disease and Stroke address the relationship of a wide variety of vascular risk factors in the spectrum of cerebrovascular diseases. An international group of professionals the forefront of research and education, provide their expertise about environmental and genetic determinants for cerebrovascular disease and stroke. The authors aim to provide information on developments of genetic, environmental and lifestyle-related risk factors of various subtypes of stroke, and MRI-markers of cerebrovascular disease. One in two men, and one in three women after the age of 40, will develop a stroke in their lifetime. The burden of cerebrovascular disease extends far beyond that of acute clinical events such as stroke, with "covert" vascular injury on brain MRI being highly prevalent in older community-dwelling persons. Therefore, improving our understanding of the risk factors for stroke and cerebrovascular disease is of paramount importance for improving prevention strategies. Secular trends in stroke epidemiology, risk factors, and intermediate markers (including carotid ultrasound, brain MRI and circulating biomarkers) are presented. Cutting edge information on genetic, environmental and lifestyle-related risk factors of various subtypes of stroke and MRI-markers of cerebrovascular diseases are displayed. This important book is an essential reference to physicians interested in more effective primary prevention of stroke.

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).

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.

No philosopher has held a higher opinion of art than Hegel, yet nor was any so profoundly pessimistic about its prospects - despite living in the German golden age of Goethe, Mozart and Schiller. For if the artists of classical Greece could find the perfect fusion of content and form, modernity faced complicating - and ultimately disabling - questions. Christianity, with its code of unworldliness, had compromised the immediacy of man's relationship with reality, and ironic detachment had alienated him from his deepest feelings. Hegel's Introductory Lectures on Aesthetics were delivered in Berlin in the 1820s and stand today as a passionately argued work that challenged the ability of art to respond to the modern world.
