Attraverso il microscopio: Neuroscienze e basi del ragionamento clinico

Il libro prende le mosse dai pensieri di un giovane che alla maturit� liceale si trova affascinato dalla cultura dei classici greco-latini, dai rudimenti filosofici e dall’impatto con le scienze fisiche e naturali. Il latino e i suoi naturalisti hanno suscitato un fervore verso los angeles Botanica Sistematica che lo riporta a Linneo e quindi alla conoscenza del mondo naturale, all’esperienza della denominazione dell’esistente come conoscenza e quindi agli universali di Guglielmo d’Occam.

Sample text

Sphenoidal electrodes can record activity from the anteroinferior portion of the temporal lobe. These electrodes are less likely to lead to artifacts than are nasopharyngeal electrodes, but their application is more difficult. The electrode consists of a sterile needle or fine wire that is insulated, except at its tip, and a physician inserts it percutaneously under local anesthesia so that it lies adjacent to the sphenoid bone, a little in front of the foramen ovale. Other accessory electrodes that are commonly used in the electrophysiologic evaluation of patients with focal seizures and impaired consciousness (previously called complex partial seizures) are surface sphenoidal electrodes, minisphenoidal electrodes, and anterior temporal electrodes.
