Introduction. - Age estimation performances may be influenced by group biases. Objective. - This study investigated whether we are more accurate at estimating the age of people from one's own-age than the age of younger or older people. Method. - Children, young and older adults’ performances at estimating both in-group and out-group faces were compared. Results. - A significant “Age of participants” × “Age of face stimuli” interaction was revealed. Moreover, the age of children's faces was more accurately estimated than the age of young and older adults’ faces by the three groups of participants. Conclusion. - The present results revealed the occurrence of an own-age bias for children, young and older adults in age estimation. Several explanations to this own-age effect are discussed.

Introduction. – The influence of Parental Educational Status (PES) on cognitive performance has been confirmed in several studies. Objective. – The aim of this study was to explore the relationship between PES and several domains of cognitive functioning and examine, through mediation analyses, the relationship between PES, language,and cognitive tasks. Method. – We first administered tasks measuring memory, executive and attentional abilities to 64 European native French speakers, divided into two groups of children according to parents’ educational status. Results. – The results suggest that, on most tasks, the effect of socio-educational status is mediated by language abilities. However, because the results were less clear for executive functions, we carried out a second experiment in which we administered more specific executive measures (i.e. inhibition, cognitive flexibility, updating and reasoning) to 80 children. Conclusion. – The results confirmed the influence of the parents’ educational status on the executive functioning and also that, contrary to other cognitive functions, this influence on executive tasks is not completely explained by language differences.

This paper examined the structural model of subjective stress considering the job control dimensions of the WOrking Conditions and Control Questionnaire (WOCCQ), a psychosocial risk diagnosis widely used in French-speaking countries. Two research questions were investigated: (1) Do all the control facets influence subjective stress in the same way?, and (2) Are certain control scales more important than others in the prediction of stress? The sample used includes 816 workers of a public employment agency. First, not all of the facets of job control influence stress in the same way. The control of resources dimension is important in indirectly influencing the stress process. Planning control is a partial mediator between control of resources and other dimensions of control. The model suggests considering future control as an exogenous variable. Finally, the direct effect of the four job control subscales on stress is identical in terms of R-square. These results are discussed not only in the theoretical perspective of stress at work but also in the stress intervention perspective. [less ▲]

L’hypersensibilité à l’électricité (HE) est un syndrome essentiellement défini par le patient lui-même, lequel présente des plaintes qu’il attribue à l’usage ou à la proximité d’appareils ou d’équipements émettant des champs électriques (CE), magnétiques (CM) ou électromagnétiques (CEM). La plupart des recherches, scandinaves, indiquent des plaintes dermatologiques chez des travailleurs sur écran mais de plus en plus de personnes se plaignent d’un syndrome plus général de type neurasthénique qui s’étend à d’autres sources de rayonnements nonionisants, lignes à haute tension et systèmes de mobilophonie. Ce terme n’implique pas de relation démontrée entre l’exposition aux champs électromagnétiques et les symptômes rapportés, comme l’indiquent les études de provocation. L’origine de l’hypersensibilité à l’électricité serait davantage multifactorielle et invite à la prise en considération multidisciplinaire de facteurs environnementaux, biologiques, psychologiques et psychosociaux dans le diagnostic et le traitement de ce syndrome hétérogène. Le but de cet article est de donner un aperçu des connaissances actuelles et des hypothèses étiologiques destinées à mieux comprendre et mieux aider les personnes qui en souffrent. [less ▲]

Studied breathing patterns and hyperventilation symptoms in 80 adolescents and adults (aged 16-60 yrs) with mild to moderate asthma and 40 adolescents and adults (aged 16-60 yrs) with no asthma symptoms (healthy controls). Data on pulmonary function, ventilation and breathing pattern, and psychological symptoms were obtained by clinical observation and questionnaire. Asthmatic Ss were requested not to take bronchodilatation medications for 24-48 hrs prior to testing. The Anxiety Sensitivity Index-Revised (S. Taylor and Cox, 1998), the Self-Consciousness Scale-Revised (A. Fenigwstein et al, 1975), the State-Train Anxiety Inventory, the Nijmegen Questionnaire (P. van Doorn et al, 1982), the Sense of Coherence Scale (A. Antonovsky, 1987), the Positive and Negative Affect Schedule (D. Watson et al, 1988), the Beck Depression Inventory, and the Asthma Symptoms Checklist (R. A. Kinsman et al, 1973, revision by Brooks et al, 1989) were used. The results show that the asthmatic subjects have lower PetCO2 than normal subjects and that variables associated with lower PetCO2 include total volume, female gender, and negative affectivity. The results also show that female subjects and asthmatics have similar breathing patterns and compared to male subjects [less ▲]

In recent years an increasing interest in attributional style in both normal and pathological populations has developed. In that context, the Internal, Personal and Situational Attributions Questionnaire (IPSAQ) was constructed. We investigated the psychometric properties of a French translation of the IPSAQ in a normal population.The results offer evidence that the present french translation has similarly adequate psychometric porperties as the original english version [less ▲]
