In solving unresolved problems, we must think the unthaught, in the sense of Das ubgedachte zu denken, according to M. Heidegger. For instance, in Medicine, ALS, Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis early diagnosis. Notoriously, the diagnosis of Amyotrofic Lateral Sclerosis, called also "Lou Gehrig's disease", the most common form of the motor neuron diseases, is generally later due to the difficulty of recognizing its clinical early symptomatology. The earliest symptoms of ALS are typically obvious weakness and/or muscle atrophy; other presenting symptoms include muscle fasciculation, cramping, or stiffness of affected muscles; muscle weakness affecting an arm or a leg; and/or slurred and nasal speech.
Despite its till now unknown causes, as every other cerebral disorder, ALS can involve exclusively individuals with Brain Disorder Inherited Real Risk, I illustrated in former papers (1-4)
In following, it is described a precious sign, Boezio’s Sign, which plays a central role in bedside diagnosing ALS, even at birth, in its Inherited Real Risk .
In health, “intense” leg skin stimulation by mean of a pinching brings about simultaneously, due to no-local realm in biological system (5, 6), microcirculatory activation type I, associated at the level of controlateral somato-sensorial parietal cortex, followed suddenly by identical activation of omolateral motor area, detected with Quantum Biophysical Semeiotics (7-10), as well as with PET.
On the contrary, in individual involved by ALS Inherited Real Risk, and clearly by overt ASL, under experimental condition, illustrated above, brain microcirculatory activation occurs after a latency time, whose value is directly related to the seriousness of underlying disorder.

About once a month at Sigma Xi headquarters, we liven up the lunch hour with an American Scientist Pizza Lunch talk. In these informal lectures, scientists describe new research to nonscientists. The series is light on jargon but heavy on solid science. Each Pizza Lunch offers an in-depth look at its subject, whether it's bedbugs or the smart grid. Click below to read about and download these talks -- and to subscribe!
JSTOR, the online academic archive, now contains complete back issues of American Scientist from its inception in 1913 (as Sigma Xi Quarterly) through 2005.
The table of contents for each issue is freely available to all users; those with institutional access can read each complete issue.
