We review the interest of cognitive event-related potentials (ERPs) in comatose, vegetative, or minimally conscious patients. Auditory cognitive ERPs are useful to investigate residual cognitive functions, such as echoic memory (MMN), acoustical and semantic discrimination (P300), and incongruent language detection (N400). While early ERPs (such as the absence of cortical responses on somatosensory-evoked potentials) predict bad outcome, cognitive ERPs (MMN and P300) are indicative of recovery of consciousness. In coma-survivors, cognitive potentials are more frequently obtained when using stimuli that are more ecologic or have an emotional content (such as the patient's own name) than when using classical sine tones.

BACKGROUND: Thiamine triphosphate (ThTP) exists in most organisms and might play a role in cellular stress responses. In E. coli, ThTP is accumulated in response to amino acid starvation but the mechanism of its synthesis is still a matter of controversy. It has been suggested that ThTP is synthesized by an ATP-dependent specific thiamine diphosphate kinase. However, it is also known that vertebrate adenylate kinase 1 catalyzes ThTP synthesis at a very low rate and it has been postulated that this enzyme is responsible for ThTP synthesis in vivo. RESULTS: Here we show that bacterial, as vertebrate adenylate kinases are able to catalyze ThTP synthesis, but at a rate more than 106-fold lower than ATP synthesis. This activity is too low to explain the high rate of ThTP accumulation observed in E. coli during amino acid starvation. Moreover, bacteria from the heat-sensitive CV2 strain accumulate high amounts of ThTP (>50% of total thiamine) at 37 degrees C despite complete inactivation of adenylate kinase and a subsequent drop in cellular ATP. CONCLUSION: These results clearly demonstrate that adenylate kinase is not responsible for ThTP synthesis in vivo. Furthermore, they show that E. coli accumulate large amounts of ThTP under severe energy stress when ATP levels are very low, an observation not in favor of an ATP-dependent mechanisms for ThTP synthesis.

For several authors, Bluethroat Luscinia svecica cyanecula would imitate orthoptera’s stridulations, in particular Gryllidae. Sonagrams presented here suggest similarities between some motives of its song and the stridulations of three Gryllidae.However, these pictures don’t absolutely refute the assumption of a sound convergence between the sound emissions of these insects and Bluethroat’s song.

The purpose of the present study was to assess if AVP-neurophysin is associated with hypercortisolemia and suicidal behaviour in depressed patients. The study included 28 patients subgrouped into suicide attempters (n=13) and nonattempters (n=15). We assessed basal AVP-neurophysins concentrations and post-dexamethasone (DST) cortisol levels. Concentrations of AVP-neurophysins did not differ between DST suppressors and nonsuppressors: 0.29+/-0.13ng/ml vs 0.36+/-0.21ng/ml, (F=1.1, df=1, 27, p=0.30). Suicide attempters did not differ from nonattempters for AVP-neurophysins levels. Our results fail to support a role of AVP in the early cortisol escape. [less ▲]

Purpose – Fair trade organisations (FTOs) have been taken quite early as examples of Social Enterprises (SE) and have contributed to the shaping of the SE concept. The purpose of this paper is to examine more deeply the link between FTOs and SE, both at a conceptual and at an empirical level. Design/methodology/approach – First, different theoretical frameworks of SE are introduced and confront FT to each of these frameworks. The second step is an empirical study of FTOs across four European countries to illustrate and deepen the links between FT and SE, focusing on the goals and the governance structures of FTOs. Findings – All the FTOs combine in some way economic, social and sometimes also political goals. FTOs are thus coherent to the “hybrid goals” nature of SEs. FTOs' governance is also quite specific and often innovative in terms of organisational architecture and stakeholders' involvement. Some FTOs are closer to the European – participatory – approach while others are closer to US – individual – approaches. Finally, the governance structures of FTOs seem to reflect quite well their goal mix. Research limitations/implications – This paper provides a more solid basis for the often implicit link between FT and SE. Future researches could use this work to explore specific topics of the SE literature in the context of FT (e.g. stakeholders' involvement). The FT example could also be used to examine further the shifting boundaries of the SE reality. Originality/value – The originality of this paper is to apply the SE concept to a specific field and to show how, within this field, there is at the same time a diversity of organisations, reflecting the diversity of SE approaches; and a range of specific features (especially in terms of goal mix and governance) distinguishing SEs from other types of organisations.

The reptile fauna of the siliceous rock habitats of the central-eastern Ardenne was studied between 2000 and 2007. The investigations were carried out at 26 sites distributed in all the hydrographic watersheds draining the area, except one (the Our watershed): Eastern and Western Ourthes, Amblève and Sure. All the significant rocky habitats of the area were studied: rocks and landslides, abandoned quarries and exploitation dumps, rail and road embankments. Five species were recorded: Anguis fragilis, Podarcis muralis, Zootoca vivipara, Coronella austriaca and Natrix natrix, of which Anguis fragilis and Zootoca vivipara were the most widespread. Podarcis muralis was only found in the Ourthe basin. The population of the latter species at Hérou constitutes a remarkable isolate while the population along the Stoumont-Coo railway is one of the largest in numbers in the Benelux countries. Coronella austriaca is reported for the second time in the Western Ourthe valley. This snake is only present in the most thermophilous habitats, where the majority of the populations seemed extremely isolated. Natrix natrix was rather widespread but never abundant. [less ▲]

With the combination of the enhanced assumed strain (EAS) and assumed natural strain (ANS) techniques in the removal of shear and volumetric locking, the solid-shell formulation requires a minimum set of enhanced modes, and this results in a competitive approach when compared with other fully EAS solid elements in terms of computational costs. Moreover, the latter reportedly suffers difficulties when dealing with very thin plate and shell structures due to the severe transverse shear locking. The paper presents an alternative solid-shell formulation, in which the ANS technique is applied to the upper and lower surfaces instead of at the mid-surface of the solid-shell element as previously adopted. The numerical results show the accuracy and efficiency of the proposed technique. [less ▲]

Precise brain regions are activated when a subject gives a judgment on himself. Those are the medial parietal cortex, essentially related to episodic memory processing, and the ventromedial prefrontal cortex, recruited for evaluating the personal valence of an information. These regions are not activated in Alzheimer's disease. The decrease of awareness for own deficits in a patient with Alzheimer's disease would depend on a reduction of episodic memory capacities and a worsening of judgment for self significance. [less ▲]
