A decrease in verbal short-term memory (STM) capacity is consistently observed in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). Although this impairment has been mainly attributed to attentional deficits during encoding and maintenance, the progressive deterioration of semantic knowledge in early stages of AD may also be an important determinant of poor STM performance. The aim of this study was to examine the influence of semantic knowledge on verbal short-term memory storage capacity in normal aging and in AD by exploring the impact of word imageability on STM performance. Sixteen patients suffering from mild AD, 16 healthy elderly subjects and 16 young subjects performed an immediate serial recall task using word lists containing high or low imageability words. All participant groups recalled more high imageability words than low imageability words, but the effect of word imageability on verbal STM was greater in AD patients than in both the young and the elderly control groups. More precisely, AD patients showed a marked decrease in STM performance when presented with lists of low imageability words, whereas recall of high imageability words was relatively well preserved. Furthermore, AD patients displayed an abnormal proportion of phonological errors in the low imageability condition. Overall, these results indicate that the support of semantic knowledge on STM performance was impaired for lists of low imageability words in AD patients. More generally, these findings suggest that the deterioration of semantic knowledge is partly responsible for the poor verbal short-term storage capacity observed in AD. [less ▲]

The principal spokesman of the Zapatista Army of National Liberation (Mexico, 1994), Subcomandante Marcos, devotes himself simultaneously to armed resistance and literature. Some of the stories he wrote are about a speaking, anti-neoliberal beetle, Don Durito de la Lacandona, who presents himself as an emulator of Don Quixote. The plays with Cervantes’ novel allow Marcos to spread his personal model about the hierarchy in the Zapatista guerrilla war, to dismiss the importance of authorship in the ranks of the revolutionary group and to enable every reader, according to his or her own personal horizon of reading, to actualize the figure of the beetle. It has been suggested that the tales about Durito are a pastiche of the novel of chivalry. We can add to this that, in the same way as Cervantes rewrote old genres by parodying them, the texts about Durito, as far as they are a sincere homage to the Quixote, move away from the traditional engaged literature in Latin America.

MATISSE is foreseen as a mid-infrared spectro-interferometer combining the beams of up to four UTs/ATs of the Very Large Telescope Interferometer (VLTI). MATISSE will measure closure phase relations and thus offer an efficient capability for image reconstruction in the L, M and N bands of the mid-infrared domain. [less ▲]

Following the need for understanding and quantifying the effect of temperature on the response of a candidate host formation for radioactive waste disposal, finite element modelling of an in situ thermal experiment has been carried out. Based on a thermo-hydro-mechanical (THM) finite element approach including a consistent thermo-plastic constitutive model, it has been possible to reproduce the THM response of a clay formation submitted to in situ thermal loading. The simulated large-scale experiment, called ATLAS was designed in the underground research facility (HADES-URF) in Mol, Belgium. After an extensive literature analysis on the thermal, hydraulic and mechanical characteristics of Boom Clay, laboratory tests were simulated to calibrate model parameters. The results of the finite element modelling of the ATLAS experiment were compared with in situ measurements and revealed the necessity to account for flow diffusion in all three directions through a 2D axisymmetric analysis. Finally, those results were interpreted in the light of elasto-thermoplasticity, which emphasizes the significant role of thermo-plastic processes in the global THM response of the clay formation.

In this letter we present a method to increase the efficiency of SiGe layer relaxation by He+ ion implantation and annealing. Preferential nucleation of He platelets along a 􏰀-impurity layer grown in the Si substrate below the SiGe layer results in planar localization and homogenization of dislocation loop sources inducing a more uniform distribution of misfit dislocations. We demonstrate this for a thin Si:C layer grown by reduced pressure chemical vapor deposition. The optimization of the conditions for efficient relaxation and layer quality is studied with respect to the position of the Si:C layer and the process parameters. Relaxation degrees up to 85% are obtained for Si0.77Ge0.23 layers. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: In effort to identify novel bacterial agents, this study was initiated to evaluate the antimicrobial properties of 17 crude extracts from 12 medicinal plants against beta-lactam-resistant bacteria. METHODOLOGY: The antimicrobial activities of plant extracts were evaluated against clinically proved beta-lactam-resistant bacteria (Klebsiella pneumoniae, Klebsiella oxytoca, Enterobacter cloacae, Serratia marcescens, Acinetobacter baumannii, Staphylococcus aureus and Enterococcus sp.) and reference strains of bacteria (Escherichia coli ATCC 35218, Enterobacter aerogenes ATCC 29751, E. aerogenes ATCC 13048, Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 27853 and Enterococcus hirae ATCC 9790) by using disc-diffusion and agar-dilution assays. RESULTS: The crude plant extracts demonstrated broad spectrum activity against all bacteria tested with inhibition zones in the range of 8-30 mm. The minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) values of different plant extracts against the tested bacteria were found to range from <or= 0.3 to >or= 10 mg ml(-1). The most active plant extracts were from Dortenia picta and Bridelia micrantha (MIC: 1.25-10 mg ml(-1)) on beta-lactam-resistant Gram-negative bacilli and the extracts from B. micrantha, Mallotus oppositifolius, Garcinia lucida, Garcinia. kola, Campylospermum densiflorum (leaves) and C. zenkeri (root) on beta-lactam-resistant Gram-positive cocci (MIC: <or= 0.3-5 mg ml(-1)). CONCLUSION: Of the 17 plant extracts studied, seven showed good antimicrobial activity against the tested bacteria. The stem bark of B. micrantha and the leaves of D. picta were most active towards beta-lactamase producing Gram-negative bacilli. This study shows that medicinal plants could be sources of compounds which can be used to fight against beta-lactam resistant bacteria. [less ▲]

The 3rd American Association of Pharmaceutical Scientists (AAPS)/Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Bioanalytical workshop in 2006 concluded with several new recommendations regarding the validation of bioanalytical methods in a report published in 2007. It was aimed to conciliate or adapt validation principles for small and large molecules and an opportunity to revisit some of the major decision rules related to acceptance criteria given the experience accumulated since 1990. The purpose here is to provide a "risk-based" reading of the recommendations of 3rd AAPS/FDA Bioanalytical Workshop. Five decision rules were compared using simulations: the proposed pre-study FDA and Total Error Rules, the rules based on the beta-Expectation Tolerance and beta-gamma-Content Tolerance Interval and, finally, the 4-6-20 rule for in-study acceptance of runs. The simulation results demonstrated that the beta-Expectation Tolerance Rule controls appropriately the risk. The beta-gamma-Content Tolerance Interval was found to be too conservative, depending on the objective, and to lead to a high rate of rejection of procedures that could be considered as acceptable. On the other side, the FDA and the AAPS/FDA workshop Total Error Rule, combined or not, did not achieve their intended objective. With these rules, the risk is high to deliver results in study that would not meet the targeted acceptance criteria. This can be explained because, first, there is confusion between the quality of a procedure and the fitness of purpose of the results it could produce and, second, between the initial performances of a procedure, for example evaluated during pre-study validation and the quality of the future results.
