Constraints on Spontaneous Entrainment
Schmidt R.C.,Bucci Colleen,Richardson Michael J.
BIO Web of Conferences , 2011, DOI: 10.1051/bioconf/20110100081
Abstract: Past research has revealed that a person's rhythmic limb movements become spontaneously entrained to an environmental rhythm if a.) visual information about the environmental rhythm is available and b.) its frequency of the environmental rhythm is near that of the person's movements. Further, this research has demonstrated that if the eyes track the environmental stimulus, the spontaneous entrainment to the environmental rhythm is strengthened. Experiments were performed to investigate two hypotheses that could explain this eye-tracking enhancement of spontaneous entrainment. One hypothesis is that eye tracking allows for the pick up of important coordinative information at the turn-around points of a movement trajectory. Another hypothesis is that the limb movements entrain to the moving eyes through a neuromotor synergy linking the eyes and limb. Results of these experiments will help delineate the informational and dynamical constraints that can impact the acquisition of skilled actions.
An electromagnetic system for planetary geophysical exploration
R. Marcialis,S. Pagnan,G. Bucci,C. Ottonello
Annals of Geophysics , 2002, DOI: 10.4401/ag-3509
Abstract: The paper presents a study, carried out in the context of TESEO project (Sistema di prospezione TDEM per l Esplorazione Geofisica dei pianeti), for the design of a TDEM (Time Domain Electromagnetic Method) system suitable for planetary subsurface exploration. The TDEM technique has been selected since it is based on the parameter of electrical conductivity, which is generally capable of discriminating geological layered structures in a fully non-invasive manner, down to depths ranging several hundred meters. Furthermore, TDEM doesn t need any material sample and intrinsically satisfies the planetary protection and cross contamination requirements. Finally, since the TDEM is a time-domain technique, it is in principle possible to retrieve information from different depths with single measurement. This last peculiarity makes the TDEM technique much more expeditious and flexible than analogous techniques operating in the frequency domain. The paper describes the purposes of TESEO project, the requirements due to space application and the preliminary system design.
The CRESST Dark Matter Search
CRESST-Collaboration,:,M. Bravin,M. Bruckmayer,C. Bucci
Physics , 1999, DOI: 10.1016/S0927-6505(99)00073-0
Abstract: The current status of CRESST (Cryogenic Rare Event Search using Superconducting Thermometers) and new results concerning the detector development are presented. The basic technique of CRESST is to search for particle Dark Matter (WIMPS, Weakly Interacting Massive particles) by the measurement of non-thermal phonons as created by WIMP-induced nuclear recoils. Combined with the newly developed method of simultaneous measurement of scintillation light, strong background discrimination is possible, resulting in a substantial increase in WIMP detection sensitivity. The short and long term perspectives of CRESST are discussed.

Public Health History Corner Abraham Flexner:the iconoclast
Roberto Bucci
Italian Journal of Public Health , 2009, DOI: 10.2427/5797
Abstract: Abraham Flexner, in 1910, led an attack on the inadequacy of the medical schools in the United States. In opposition to the traditional clinical type training he proposed a new laboratory centred model, with a strong emphasis on basic sciences. These university lab experiments were one of the main driving forces in the development of medical sciences in the USA. The work of a pedagogue caused a real medical revolution, the outcomes of which were important but not all positive.
A historical laboratory in Rome
Roberto Bucci
Italian Journal of Public Health , 2010, DOI: 10.2427/5754
Abstract: Visitors who climb the austere stairs of the Giuseppe Sanarelli Institute, headquarters of the Public Health Sciences Department, in the University La Sapienza of Rome, may experience a strange feeling: the steps follow one another identically, yet each seems taller and more difficult than the last. It is as if, with every step, time reveals its stories, experiences; ever larger and harder to sustain. Following the corridor it is impossible not to pause and reflect upon the displays of memories and details belonging to the past. There is a constant sensation, almost tangible: it is as if each of the objects, so dense with memories, want to take you on a fantastic voyage to another time and place. Objects made of wood, copper and other materials that come from the past, filled with the scent of a world that no longer exists.
Acting as a unit". A praiseworthy story from Cleveland
Roberto Bucci
Italian Journal of Public Health , 2009, DOI: 10.2427/5782
Abstract: This is a story that comes from Cleveland. It’s a story of zealous and ingenious men, of ideas and of cooperation. A story that is the result of various personal and diverse professional experiences, from different historical moments, all converged towards a single cause: excellence in health care. It is also a story about a private institution but nevertheless it offers many public health teachings: it’s the story of Albert Kanoti and the Cleveland Clinic Foundation. The Cleveland Clinic was founded on February 5 1921 as an independent, not-for-profit academic medical center engaged in patient care, research, and education. In 1924 it added a 184-bed hospital to its outpatient facilities. It has also experienced tragic moments, when on May 15, 1929, nitrate-based x-ray films ignited in the original building, releasing poisonous fumes; 123 people died, including Dr. Phillips, one of the founders. Despite losses from the disaster and the stock market crash, the institution stayed afloat on the good will of prominent members of the community, and the large surgical practice of Dr. Crile, another of its founders. It expanded greatly after World War II, focusing on specialized medicine. The Cleveland Clinic Research Division investigated kidney disease, blood circulation, and artificial organs, including the artificial kidney. ClevelandClinic physicians, researchers and nurses pioneered enterostomal therapy, dialysis, and kidney transplant techniques, and were first to identify carpal tunnel syndrome and isolate serotonin, and all before 1960.
Public Health History Corner Multidisciplinary approach to Public Health: Albert Jonsen’s example
Roberto Bucci
Italian Journal of Public Health , 2010, DOI: 10.2427/5701
Abstract: Public Health is not a discipline with clearly defined boundaries. This feature has taken many contributions from different cultural contexts. In its most recent development, Public Health has also emphasized the enhancement of the human element for the proper functioning of health facilities and the provision of quality care. The vision of public health only through its processes, resources, rules and protocols and any other part of the “structural” component, is certainly simplistic and of the past. This vision of the efficiency of health organization has positive aspects but certainly cannot disregard the fact that things do not have just procedures, but also involve who perform them and how these are managed. So ‘new’ public health contained a new focus on human rights and sought to address social and environmental change. At its root was the common thought that the general context for health had been marginalized only by medically generated concerns.
Public Health History Corner The far-sighted: Alessandro Seppilli
Roberto Bucci
Italian Journal of Public Health , 2011, DOI: 10.2427/5663
Abstract: Alessandro Seppilli is one of the main protagonists for the planning and establishment of the Italian National Health Service [1]. As Chairman of the Commission for the study of health reform in the Italian Consiglio Superiore di Sanità (Higher Council of Health). As a lecturer and researcher he promoted and led several important lines of research, always ahead of its time and with great foresight. His curiosity led him to be involved in a variety of Public Health disciplines: water and sanitation, safe milk distribution, as well as demonstrating, through research, the influence of atmospheric electrical changes on biological phenomena in respect to the vital effects of electric fields changes. He also conducted pioneering research into the study of anticaries fluoride and the carcinogenic effects of active and passive cigarette smoke. Last but not least he studied the use of low temperatures for food storage, investigated the distribution of drinking water by alternative systems and undertook studies on environmental carcinogenesis.
