Učiteljski fakultet u Rijeci. E-mail:

Medical history of the city of Rijeka is a rich treasure trove of events, celebrities and valuable innovations in the field of healthcare. The historical development of Rijeka was largely determined by her geopolitical position as a border town with a multicultural population, marked by strong conflicts of interest and numerous identity turmoil. The great exodus of the domicile population of Italian nationality after World War II has significantly changed the social picture of the city. Read More

Towards an integrated account of the development of self-regulation from a neurocognitive perspective: A framework for current and future longitudinal multi-modal investigations.

Dev Cogn Neurosci 2020 10 25;45:100829. Epub 2020 Jul 25.

Department of Interdisciplinary Social Science, Utrecht University, Utrecht, the Netherlands.

Self-regulation is the ability to monitor and modulate emotions, behaviour, and cognition in order to adapt to changing circumstances. Developing adequate self-regulation is associated with better social coping and higher educational achievement later in life; poor self-regulation has been linked to a variety of detrimental developmental outcomes. Here, we focus on the development of neurocognitive processes essential for self-regulation. Read More

Honest signaling and the double counting of inclusive fitness.

Evol Lett 2019 Oct 4;3(5):428-433. Epub 2019 Sep 4.

Department of Zoology University of Oxford Oxford OX1 3PS United Kingdom.

Inclusive fitness requires a careful accounting of all the fitness effects of a particular behavior. Verbal arguments can potentially exaggerate the inclusive fitness consequences of a behavior by including the fitness of relatives that was not caused by that behavior, leading to error. We show how this "double-counting" error can arise, with a recent example from the signaling literature. Read More

J Family Med Prim Care 2019 Apr;8(4):1481-1482

Department of Paediatric Cardiology, Kerala Institute of Medical Sciences, Trivandrum, Kerala, India.

Kawasaki disease (KD) is the most common vasculitis in childhood that affects medium-sized arteries, particularly coronary arteries. The etiology remains unknown; however, many studies suggest that specific genetic factors and/or some infectious agents underlie the onset. Here, we report a set of identical twin boys who simultaneously developed KD, emphasizing the genetic component of etiology. Read More

Parental habituation to human disturbance over time reduces fear of humans in coyote offspring.

Ecol Evol 2018 Dec 11;8(24):12965-12980. Epub 2018 Dec 11.

Committee on Evolutionary Biology University of Chicago Chicago Illinois.

A fundamental tenet of maternal effects assumes that maternal variance over time should have discordant consequences for offspring traits across litters. Yet, seldom are parents observed across multiple reproductive bouts, with few studies considering anthropogenic disturbances as an ecological driver of maternal effects. We observed captive coyote () pairs over two successive litters to determine whether among-litter differences in behavior (i. Read More

Discordant Transient Extreme Hyperleukocytosis in Dichorionic Diamniotic Twins: The Role of the Sex?

J Pediatr Hematol Oncol 2016 Apr;38(3):246-7

Department of Neonatology, Isala, Zwolle, The Netherlands.

Myofibroblasts are activated in response to tissue injury with the primary task to repair lost or damaged extracellular matrix. Enhanced collagen secretion and subsequent contraction - scarring - are part of the normal wound healing response and crucial to restore tissue integrity. Due to myofibroblasts ability to repair but not regenerate, accumulation of scar tissue is always associated with reduced organ performance. Read More

Neighborhood Disadvantage and Parenting: Behavioral Genetics Evidence of Child Effects.

Int J Offender Ther Comp Criminol 2016 Oct 19;60(13):1549-68. Epub 2015 Apr 19.

Kyonggi University, Suwon-si, Gyonggi-do, South Korea

The criminological literature has a long tradition of emphasizing the socialization effects that parents have on children. By contrast, evidence from behavioral genetics research gives precedence to child effects on parental management techniques over parental effects on children's outcomes. Considering these diverging lines of scholarship and literature, the current study explores a novel hypothesis that child effects on parenting may be conditioned by the level of the disadvantage of the neighborhood in which the child's family resides.
