Un siècle après l’essoufflement de la mode panoramique des années 1830-1840, l’emprunt littéraire à la « physiologie » constitue encore un effet de titre pour un essai théorique tel que Physiologie de la critique d’Albert Thibaudet. Pourtant, sous la Monarchie de Juillet, le petit genre du même nom, qui présente d’autres caractéristiques formelles et thématiques, n’est pas nettement défini par rapport à une conception et une pratique de l’essai. Au mieux peut-on lui découvrir des parentés significatives avec une certaine écriture journalistique. Les Physiologies se rapprochent en effet de la chronique sous la forme de la notation des faits-Paris et développent une fiction d’actualité féconde en savoir culturel et social. Leur engagement satirique contre le gouvernement en place et leur inscription dans un contexte de vulgarisation scientifique accrue sous l’influence londonienne de la « connaissance utile » ne suffisent pas à apparenter ces Physiologies à de la prose d’idées. Au contraire, elles contournent volontiers les conventions d’écriture du texte d’idées à travers des formes parodiques et déceptives. Il s’agit, de la sorte, d’empêcher le dogmatisme de prendre consistance en oeuvrant contre le discours d’autorité, en particulier scientifique, et contre l’assertivité qui lui est inhérente. Les informations traitées sont non seulement modelées par la distanciation humoristique et la saturation polyphonique, mais elles se trouvent également travaillées en profondeur par la contamination volontaire avec la rhétorique publicitaire dans un contexte de prolifération journalistique de la « réclame ». Le genre physiologique résiste de la sorte aux structures textuelles normatives et assertives d’exposition du savoir. Il ne se les approprie que pour mieux les disqualifier par l’humour et le raisonnement paralogique. Cette caractéristique se traduit par certaines postures discursives récurrentes, en particulier celle du faux spécialiste exhibé comme tel, posture qui consiste à feindre de se rendre ponctuellement expert d’une fraction réduite et caricaturalement recréée de la société, tout en opérant des décrochages réguliers par rapport à cette position énonciative investie d’une autorité. L’étude discursive et générique de tels modes d’expression biaisée du discours d’autorité doit permettre d’éclairer la dynamique d’écriture de l’essai dans les Physiologies parisiennes des années 1830-1840. Cet examen sera orienté par la question des redistributions qui sont ainsi rendues possibles à propos de la frontière entre l’essai-cognitif, caractérisé par une structuration théorique à vocation objectivante, et l’essai-méditation, centré sur une expressivité individualisante de l’instance énonciative.

Using modern brain imaging techniques, new discoveries are being made concerning the spontaneous activity of the brain when it is devoid of attention-demanding tasks. Spatially separated patches of neuronal assemblies have been found to show synchronized oscillatory activity behavior and are said to be functionally connected. One of the most robust of these is the default mode network, which is associated with intrinsic processes like mind wandering and self-projection. Furthermore, activity in this network is anticorrelated with activity in a network that is linked to attention to external stimuli. The integrity of both networks is disturbed in altered states of consciousness, like sleep, general anesthesia and hypnosis. In coma and related disorders of consciousness, encompassing the vegetative state (unresponsive wakefulness syndrome) and minimally conscious state, default mode network integrity correlates with the level of remaining consciousness, offering the possibility of using this information for diagnostic and prognostic purposes. Functional brain imaging is currently being validated as a valuable addition to the standardized behavioral assessments that are already in use. [less ▲]

The 'default network' is defined as a set of areas, encompassing posterior-cingulate/precuneus, anterior cingulate/mesiofrontal cortex and temporo-parietal junctions, that show more activity at rest than during attention-demanding tasks. Recent studies have shown that it is possible to reliably identify this network in the absence of any task, by resting state functional magnetic resonance imaging connectivity analyses in healthy volunteers. However, the functional significance of these spontaneous brain activity fluctuations remains unclear. The aim of this study was to test if the integrity of this resting-state connectivity pattern in the default network would differ in different pathological alterations of consciousness. Fourteen non-communicative brain-damaged patients and 14 healthy controls participated in the study. Connectivity was investigated using probabilistic independent component analysis, and an automated template-matching component selection approach. Connectivity in all default network areas was found to be negatively correlated with the degree of clinical consciousness impairment, ranging from healthy controls and locked-in syndrome to minimally conscious, vegetative then coma patients. Furthermore, precuneus connectivity was found to be significantly stronger in minimally conscious patients as compared with unconscious patients. Locked-in syndrome patient's default network connectivity was not significantly different from controls. Our results show that default network connectivity is decreased in severely brain-damaged patients, in proportion to their degree of consciousness impairment. Future prospective studies in a larger patient population are needed in order to evaluate the prognostic value of the presented methodology. [less ▲]

Observance around pregnancy includes two parts: what can be done before conception and what must be done during pregnancy. Preconception care, if efficaciously performed, offerss real benefits for foetal and child development. Its efficacy will depends on the involvement and motivation of physicians and particularly also on the patient's observance. In this article we summarize essential pieces of advice to be given to each patient before pregnancy. Therapeutic inertia in obstetrics presents two differents aspects: on the one hand, the delay to initiate a therapeutic strategy when a complication arises such as a postpartum hemorrhage; on the other hand, the continuation of obsolete practices, such as the therapy of uterine hypersystolia.

The problem of orientation or runout errors being formulated, it is firt noted that these errors necessarily include the form errors of the measured part. The second problem is the correct asseement of a simulated reference when the reference surface is of imperfect form. The logical choice would be perfect form having the least maximal distance to the physical one. But this choice being a difficult one, the best approximation in the least square sense if often chosed. The effect of this reference perturbation is studied. [less ▲]

This paper shows how the information enclosed in a colour image of a bi-colour apple can be used to segment defects. A method to segment pixels, based on a Bayesian classification process, is proposed. The colour frequency distributions of the healthy tissue and of the defects were used to estimate the probability distribution of each class. The results showed that most defects, namely bitter pit, fungi attack, scar tissue, frost damages, bruises, insect attack and scab, are segmented. However, russet was sometimes confused with the transition area between ground and blush colour. (C) 1999 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

The sensing ability of metallic carbon nanotubes toward various gas species (NO2, NH3, CO, H2O, and CO2) is investigated via ab initio calculations and Nonequilibrium Green’s Functions technique, focusing on the salient features of the interaction between molecules and oxygenated-defective tubes. As the adsorption/desorption of molecules induces modulations on the electrical conductivity of the tube, the computation of the electron quantum conductance can be used to predict gas detection. Indeed, the analysis of the conductance curve in a small energy range around the Fermi energy reveal that oxygenated-defective nanotubes are sensitive to NO2, NH3, CO, and H2O, but not to CO2. Molecular selectivity can also be provided by the nature of the charge transfer. [less ▲]

Systemic-onset juvenile chronic arthritis (SoJCA) is associated with high levels of circulating interleukin-6 (IL-6) and is frequently complicated by severe microcytic anemia whose pathogenesis is unclear. Therefore, we studied 20 consecutive SoJCA patients with hemoglobin (Hb) levels <12 g/dL, evaluating erythroid progenitor proliferation, endogenous erythropoietin production, body iron status, and iron supply for erythropoiesis. Hb concentrations ranged from 6.5 to 11.9 g/dL. Hb level was directly related to mean corpuscular volume (r = .82, P < .001) and inversely related to circulating transferrin receptor (r = -.81, P < .001) suggesting that the severity of anemia was directly proportional to the degree of iron-deficient erythropoiesis. Serum ferritin ranged from 18 to 1,660 microgram/L and was unrelated to Hb level. Bone marrow iron stores wore markedly reduced in the three children investigated, and they also showed increased serum transferrin receptor and normal-to-high serum ferritin. All 20 patients had elevated IL-6 levels and normal in vitro growth of erythroid progenitors. Endogenous erythropoietin (epo) production was appropriate for the degree of anemia as judged by both the observed to predicted log (serum epo) ratio 10.95 +/- 0.12) and a comparison of the serum epo-Hb regression found in these subjects with that of thalassemia patients. Multiple regression analysis showed that serum transferrin receptor was the parameter most closely related to hemoglobin concentration: variation in circulating transferrin receptor explained 61% of the variation in Hb level (P < .001). In 10 severely anemic patients, amelioration of anemia following intravenous iron administration resulted in normalization of serum transferrin receptor. Defective iron supply to the erythron rather than blunted epo production is the major cause of the microcytic anemia associated with SoJCA. A true body-iron deficiency caused by decreased iron absorption likely complicates long-lasting inflammation in the most anemic children, and this can be recognized by high serum transferrin receptor levels. Although oral iron is of no benefit, intravenous iron saccharate is a safe and effective means for improving iron availability for erythropoiesis and correcting this anemia. Thus, while chronically high endogenous IL-6 levels do not appear to blunt epo production, they are probably responsible for the observed abnormalities in iron metabolism. Anemia of chronic disease encompasses a variety of anemic conditions whose peculiar features may specifically correlate with the type of cytokine(s) predominantly released. [less ▲]

A method based on colour information is proposed to detect defects on 'Golden Delicious' apples. In a first step, a colour model based on the variability of the normal colour is described. To segment the defects, each pixel of ail apple image is compared with the model. If it matches the pixel, it is considered as belonging to healthy tissue, otherwise as a defect. Two other steps refine the segmentation, using either parameters computed on the whole fruit, or values computed locally. Some results are shown and discussed. The algorithm is able to segment a wide range of defects. (C) 1998 Elsevier Science B.V. All rights reserved. [less ▲]
