Assessment of daily living activities is essential in patients with Alzheimer's disease. Most current tools quantitatively assess overall ability but provide little qualitative information on individual difficulties. Only a few tools allow therapists to evaluate stereotyped activities and record different types of errors. We capitalised on the Kitchen Activity Assessment to design a widely applicable analysis grid that provides both qualitative and quantitative data on activity performance. A cooking activity was videotaped in 15 patients with dementia and assessed according to the different steps in the execution of the task. The evaluations obtained with our grid showed good correlations between raters, between versions of the grid and between sessions. Moreover, the degree of independence obtained with our analysis of the task correlated with the Kitchen Activity Assessment score and with a global score of cognitive functioning. We conclude that assessment of a daily living activity with this analysis grid is reproducible and relatively independent of the therapist, and thus provides quantitative and qualitative information useful for both evaluating and caring for demented patients.

Purpose: Early assessment of radiotherapy (RT) quality in the ongoing EORTC trial comparing primary temozolomide versus RT in low-grade gliomas. Materials and methods: RT plans provided for dummy cases were evaluated and compared against expert plans. We analysed: (1) tumour and organs-at-risk delineation, (2) geometric and dosimetric characteristics, (3) planning parameters, compliance with dose prescription and Dmax for OAR (4) indices: RTOG conformity index (CI), coverage factor (CF), tissue protection factor (PF); conformity number (CN = PF× CF); dose homogeneity in PTV (U). Results: Forty-one RT plans were evaluated. Only two (5%) centres were requested to repeat CTV-PTV delineations. Three (7%) plans had a significant under-dosage and dose homogeneity in one deviated > 10%. Dose distribution was good with mean values of 1.5, 1, 0.68, and 0.68 (ideal values = 1) for CI, CF, PF, and CN, respectively. CI and CN strongly correlated with PF and they correlated with PTV. Planning with more beams seems to increase PTV Dmin, improving CF. U correlated with PTV Dmax. Conclusion: Preliminary results of the dummy run procedure indicate that most centres conformed to protocol requirements. To quantify plan quality we recommend systematic calculation of U and either CI or CN, both of which measure the amount of irradiated normal brain tissue. © 2010 Elsevier Ireland Ltd.

According to EN 1504-10 and ACI Concrete Repair Manual, bond strength and interface quality are the main features of repair system necessary to be assessed. Pull-off test is most commonly used for bond strength evaluation but growing interest in nondestructive techniques (NDT) is recently noted. Impact-echo (IE) is treated as the most promising one for this purpose. The aim of this paper is to analyze an effect of bond quality on stress wave propagation in repair systems. A group of samples has been prepared in order to obtain repair systems of different bond quality. Prior to repair, quality of concrete substrates has been characterized according different techniques: compressive strength, superficial cohesion, surface roughness index and cracking quantification. Than a polymer-modified repair mortar has been applied. After hardening, IE signals have been recorded and pull-off bond strength determined. The relationships between parameters characterizing surface quality, bond strength, IE frequency spectrum and results of wavelet analysis of IE signal have been analyzed. [less ▲]

Faced with new challenge from globalization, technological and demographic changes, today organizational training takes a crucial importance in the development of human resources in organizations. From both a scientific and practical point of view, two major currents presently seem to rule this field: a psychosociological current and an ergonomic current. The contributions of each of them in organizational human resources development are unquestionable, but we have observed significant levels of misunderstanding between the two, as well as a lack of dialogue and scientific objectivity. The present paper intends to initiate this dialogue with an eye towards developing training practices. Thanks to a better understanding of these main approaches, our aim is to help those who seek to train personnel to better orientate their choice of training. From this perspective, based as much on historical research as on more recent works, several common points are obvious. (1) There is a wish to develop new learning strategies which draws substance from scientific research, and which breaks with school-based models. (2) There is a strong link between theory and action, together with practices that combine doing and knowledge. (3) There is also a vision of learning as the result of action combined with reflection on action. In contrast with these shared foundations, several differences leading to fruitful exchange have been identified. (1) Focus on group from psychosociological approaches, as opposed to focus on work from ergonomic perspectives; (2) concentration on functional and specific aspects of work in the ergonomic approach and emphasis on relational and transversal aspects in the psychosociological approach; (3) four points on which technical exchanges would be profitable; (4) a major controversy on the question of whether the link between work and training is necessary or not. By becoming aware of the complementarity of the two approaches (compatible and different), we become convinced that it is essential to begin a dialogue in order to make organizational training practices more understandable and more effective.

The ITRS Roadmap highlights the electrical characterization of the source and drain extension regions as a key challenge for future complimentary-metal-oxide-semiconductor technology. Presently, an accurate determination of the depth of ultrashallow junctions can routinely only be performed by time-consuming and destructive techniques such as secondary ion mass spectrometry (SIMS). In this work, the authors propose to use the fast and nondestructive photomodulated optical reflectance (PMOR) technique , as implemented in the Therma-Probe\textregistered (TP) dopant metrology system, for these purposes. PMOR is a pump-probe technique based on the measurement of the pump-induced modulated change in probe reflectance, i.e., the so-called (photo) modulated reflectance. In this article, the authors demonstrate that the absolute junction depths of boxlike active dopant structures can be extracted in a very simple and straightforward way from the TP offset curves, which represent the behavior of the modulated reflectance as a function of the pump-probe beam spacing. Although the procedure is based on the insights into the physical behavior of the offset curves, no modeling is involved in the actual extraction process itself. The extracted junction depths are in good correlation with the corresponding junction depths as measured by means of SIMS. The technique has a subnanometer depth sensitivity for depths ranging from 10 to 35 nm with the present Therma-Probe\textregistered 630XP system. The extension of the proposed procedure to the general ultrashallow profiles is also explored and discussed [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Mechanisms of anesthesia-induced loss of consciousness remain poorly understood. Resting-state functional magnetic resonance imaging allows investigating whole-brain connectivity changes during pharmacological modulation of the level of consciousness. METHODS: Low-frequency spontaneous blood oxygen level-dependent fluctuations were measured in 19 healthy volunteers during wakefulness, mild sedation, deep sedation with clinical unconsciousness, and subsequent recovery of consciousness. RESULTS: Propofol-induced decrease in consciousness linearly correlates with decreased corticocortical and thalamocortical connectivity in frontoparietal networks (i.e., default- and executive-control networks). Furthermore, during propofol-induced unconsciousness, a negative correlation was identified between thalamic and cortical activity in these networks. Finally, negative correlations between default network and lateral frontoparietal cortices activity, present during wakefulness, decreased proportionally to propofol-induced loss of consciousness. In contrast, connectivity was globally preserved in low-level sensory cortices, (i.e., in auditory and visual networks across sedation stages). This was paired with preserved thalamocortical connectivity in these networks. Rather, waning of consciousness was associated with a loss of cross-modal interactions between visual and auditory networks. CONCLUSIONS: Our results shed light on the functional significance of spontaneous brain activity fluctuations observed in functional magnetic resonance imaging. They suggest that propofol-induced unconsciousness could be linked to a breakdown of cerebral temporal architecture that modifies both within- and between-network connectivity and thus prevents communication between low-level sensory and higher-order frontoparietal cortices, thought to be necessary for perception of external stimuli. They emphasize the importance of thalamocortical connectivity in higher-order cognitive brain networks in the genesis of conscious perception. [less ▲]
