Traumatic shock and electroshock: the difficult relationship between anatomic pathology and psychiatry in the early 20th century.

Traumatic shock and electroshock: the difficult relationship between anatomic pathology and psychiatry in the early 20th century. Pathologica. 2019 Jun;111(2):79-85 Authors: Patriarca C, Clerici CA Abstract In the conviction that a look at the past can contribute to a better understanding of the present in the field of science too, we discuss here two aspects of the relationship between early 20th century anatomic pathology and psychiatry that have received very little attention, in Italy at least. There was much debate between these two disciplines throughout the 19th century, which began to lose momentum in the early years of the 20th, with the arrival on the scene of schizophrenia (a disease histologically sine materia) in all its epidemiological relevance. The First World War also contributed to the separation between psychiatry and pathology, which unfolded in the fruitless attempts to identify a histopathological justification for the psychological trauma known as shell shock. This condition was defined at the time as a "strange disorder" with very spectacular symptoms (memory loss, trembling, hallucinations, blindness with no apparent organic cause, dysesthesias, myoclonus, bizarre postures, hemiplegia, and more), that may have found neuropathological grounds only some hundred years later. Among the doctors with a passed involvement in the conflict, Ugo Cerletti, the inventor of electroshock treatment, focused on the problem of sc...

SUPRAS made up of hexagonal inverted aggregates of octanoic acid in ethanol:water mixtures provided good extraction yields for bioactives (3.6 ± 0.3 mg caffeine g−1 and 0.9 ± 0.1 mg protocatechuic acid g−1) at a...

This study evaluated the effect of vacuum operation parameters on the recovery of protein and antioxidant compounds from sesame bran. In this context, vacuum-ultrasound assisted extraction (VU) and vacuum-ultrasound assisted enzymatic extraction (VUE) methods were carried out, and the vacuum parameters were investigated using central composite design by response surface methodology (RSM). The independent parameters were found effective on protein yield, total phenolic content and antioxidant capacity values. Optimum conditions for VU were 21 min vacuum time, 72 min restoration time and 539 mmHg vacuum ...

In this study, for the first time, hollow fiber and monolithic fiber were fabricated based on metal-organic framework deep eutectic solvents/molecularly imprinted polymers (MOF- DES/MIPs) and were used for microextraction of phthalate esters under termed hollow fiber liquid membrane-protected solid-phase microextraction (HFLMP-SPME) followed by gas chromatography- flame ionization detection. Several parameters influencing extraction recoveries of phthalate esters including adsorption and desorption parameters were investigated and optimized using fabricated MOF- DES/MIPs monolithic fiber. Under optimal conditions, detectio...

This study compares the photostability of three organic red dyes, Red 40 (allura red AC), betanin and carminic acid, in aqueous and soft drink solutions. The degradation, traced through absorbance spectroscopy, is well fit to first-order kinetics. Two distinct timescales are observed in aqueous solution but only a single, faster decay in the soft drink matrix. Betanin is the least stable dye in both solvent environments and Red 40 exhibits the greatest destabilization in the soft drink solution. Anoxia has different impacts dependent upon both the dye and solvent system. The analysis provides further insight into the degra...

Approaches for fabricating Sb2S3 nanostructures or thin films are by chemical or physicochemical methods, while there have been no report focused on the biological synthesis of nano Sb2S3. In the present study, we fabricated nano-broccoli-like Sb2S3 using Sb(V) reducing bacteria. Thirty four marine and terrestrial st...
