Firstly, in this paper the historical analysis of volition as a specific construct in front of motivation and conation is developed. From the middle of the eighties volition is focused in empirical literature as a central concept in goal-directed learning behaviours, especially when goals are difficult to reach. Secondly, limits of motivation (values, expectations) to explain reaching complex learning goals which imply overcoming internal or external obstacles are heightened and volition (action control strategies and implementation intentions) is proved to basically contribute to initiate goal-directed actions and bring them to a successful conclusion.

Measurements from ETH-Camp and JAR1 AWS (West Greenland) as well as coupled atmosphere-snow regional climate simulations have highlighted flaws in the cross-polarized gradient ratio (XPGR) technique used to identify melt from passive microwave satellite data. It was found that dense clouds (causing notably rainfall) on the ice sheet severely perturb the XPGR melt signal. Therefore, the original XPGR melt detection algorithm has been adapted to better incorporate atmospheric variability over the ice sheet and an updated melt trend for the 1988–2003 period has been calculated. Compared to the original algorithm, the melt zone area increase is eight times higher (from 0.2 to 1.7% year−1). The increase is higher with the improved XPGR technique because rainfall also increased during this period. It is correlated to higher atmospheric temperatures. Finally, the model shows that the total ice sheet runoff is directly proportional to the melt extent surface detected by satellites. These results are important for the understanding of the effect of Greenland melting on the stability of the thermohaline circulation. [less ▲]

REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY: There is increasing evidence that the equine athlete is exposed to exercise-induced changes of its oxidant/antioxidant balance and antioxidant supplementation is frequently recommended. However, it is unknown whether there is a specific need for antioxidants according to performance, breed, gender or age. OBJECTIVES: To assess whether breed-, gender- and age-related differences of blood oxidant/antioxidant markers occur in competition horses. METHODS: Healthy horses (n = 493) underwent oxidant/ antioxidant blood marker determination. Vitamin E, lipophilic antioxidant capacity (ACL), ascorbic acid (AA), glutathione (GSH, GSSG), gluthione peroxidase (GPx), superoxide dismutase (SOD), selenium (Se), copper (Cu), zinc (Zn), lipid peroxides (Pool), oxidised proteins (Protox) were determined, as well as magnesium (Mg), creatine phosphokinase (CPK), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), packed cell volume (PCV) and haemoglobin (Hb). A mixed linear model assessed the effect of breed, gender and age category. P<0.05 was considered significant. RESULTS: Thoroughbreds showed the highest values of vitamin E, ACL, GPx, PCV and Hb, whilst standardbreds had the highest values of AA and LDH. Jumping horses had the highest Protox values. Females had significantly higher SOD values, whereas most of the other markers were higher in stallions and geldings. Horses age 2-6 years had higher AA, SOD and LDH values than horses age >6 years. Correlation analyses were positive and significant between vitamin E and GPx, VitE and ACL, Se and GPx, Cu and Pool and negative between Pool and vitamin E, Pool and ACL, Protox and GPx, Protox and vitamin E. CONCLUSIONS: Blood oxidant/ antioxidant status of horses is influenced by breed, gender and age. The correlation analyses suggest synergistic relations between GPx, vitamin E and Se and an antagonistic relation between Protox-GPx, Protox-vitamin E, and Pool-vitamin E. POTENTIAL RELEVANCE: The results of this investigation provide definition of the specific need for antioxidants and vitamins in competition horses. [less ▲]

Psoriasis is a frequent multifactorial chronic skin disease that can lead to a decreased quality of life. Some patients also present arthritis. Those two complex inflammatory diseases share some of their characteristics, but several clinical manifestations can be distinguished in each of them. In addition to classical medications (constituted of topical treatments, methotrexate, ciclosporin and retinoids for cutaneous psoriasis and non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs or methotrexate for psoriatic arthritis), they are the target of a new generation of therapies: the biologics.

The respiratory tract of the horse can be the seat of several chronic inflammatory diseases whose principal ones are the recurrent airway obstruction, the inflammatory airway disease, the summer pasture-associated obstructive pulmonary disease and the follicular pharyngitis. These diseases can have an important impact on horses’ health and on their sports performances. A good knowledge of their aetiologies and their physiopathological mechanisms would allow a better control of these affections. However, even if many studies were made on this subject, there are currently very few certainties as for the inflammatory mechanisms governing these diseases. This article aims to make an inventory of knowledge and deficiencies concerning these four chronic inflammatory diseases [less ▲]

The cytoplasmic dye carboxyfluorescein diacetate succinimidyl ester (CFSE) is used to quantify cell kinetics. It is particularly important in studies of lymphocyte homeostasis where its labelling of cells irrespective of their stage in the cell cycle makes it preferable to deuterated glucose and BrdU, which only label dividing cells and thus produce unrepresentative results. In the past, experiments have been limited by the need to obtain a clear separation of CFSE peaks forcing scientists to adopt a strategy of in vitro labelling of cells followed by their injection into the host. Here we develop a framework for analysis of in vivo CFSE labelling data. This enables us to estimate the rate of proliferation and death of lymphocytes in situ, and thus represents a considerable advance over current procedures. We illustrate this approach using in vivo CFSE labelling of B lymphocytes in sheep. [less ▲]

The generation of new neurons in the cerebral cortex requires that progenitor cells leave the cell cycle and activate specific programs of differentiation and migration. Genetic studies have identified some of the molecules controlling these cellular events, but how the different aspects of neurogenesis are integrated into a coherent developmental program remains unclear. One possible mechanism implicates multifunctional proteins that regulate, both cell cycle exit and cell differentiation.(1) A prime example is the cyclin-dependent kinase inhibitor p27(Kip1), which has recently been shown to function beyond cell cycle regulation and promote both neuronal differentiation and migration of newborn cortical neurons, through distinct and separable mechanisms. p27(Kip1) is therefore part of a machinery that couples the multiple events of neurogenesis in the cerebral cortex.

Dans cette étude, nous aborderons le phénomène de l’abandon de la pratique compétitive de la natation en privilégiant une approche qualitative, contrairement à ce qui a déjà été proposé dans la littérature. En récoltant des données chez les différents acteurs de clubs, nous ambitionnons de mieux cerner le phénomène et, surtout, de croiser les données issues des pratiquants avec celles des autres personnages clés de la réussite sportive. Mettre en exergue les solutions imaginées par les dirigeants sportifs pour lutter contre ce phénomène et offrir une base de réflexion et d’action aux praticiens constituent les finalités pratiques de cette étude.
