One hundred and fourteen consecutive totally implantable catheters were inserted in 114 patients between April 1984 and April 1987. Catheters were inserted under neuroleptanalgesia, through the jugular vein in 101 cases or the internal saphenous vein in 13 cases. No problem was encountered during the insertion procedure. Infection occurred in 5.2% of the patients but removal of the device was required in only 2.6%. Occlusion of the catheter occurred in 6.1% of the patients but never during the first 2 months. This complication rate is lower than the one observed with external tunnelled catheters. The comfort of the patient is substantially improved and nursing care is greatly facilitated. [less ▲]

This paper analyzes the ability of the Multiple Centrality Corrections (MCC) interior point algorithm to solve various classical optimal power flow (OPF) variants, namely: the minimization of generation cost, the minimization of active power losses, the maximization of power system loadability and the minimization of the amount of load curtailment. The performances of the MCC approach are assessed with respect to the predictor-corrector algorithm, which is widely recognized as the best interior point method based optimizer to date. Illustrative examples on three test systems up to 300 buses are provided. [less ▲]

The function of rapid-eye-movement (REM) sleep is stiil unknown. One prevailing hypothesis suggests that REM sleep is important in processing memory traces. Here, using positron emission tomography (PET) and regional cerebral blood flow measurements, we show that waking experience influences regional brain activity during subsequent sleep. Several brain areas activated during the execution of a serial reaction time task during wakefulness were significantly more active during REM sleep in subjects previously trained on the task than in non-trained subjects. These results support the hypothesis that memory traces are processed during REM sleep in humans. [less ▲]

One function of sleep is hypothesized to be the reprocessing and consolidation of memory traces (Smith, 1995; Gais et al., 2000; McGaugh, 2000; Stickgold et al., 2000). At the cellular level, neuronal reactivations during post-training sleep in animals have been observed in hippocampal (Wilson and McNaughton, 1994) and cortical (Amzica et al., 1997) neuronal populations. At the systems level, using positron emission tomography, we have recently shown that some brain areas reactivated during rapid-eye-movement sleep in human subjects previously trained on an implicit learning task (a serial reaction time task) (Maquet et al., 2000). These cortical reactivations, located in the left premotor area and bilateral cuneus, were thought to reflect the reprocessing - possibly the consolidation - of memory traces during post-training rapid-eye-movement sleep. Here, the experience-dependent functional connectivity of these brain regions is examined. It is shown that the left premotor cortex is functionally more correlated with the left posterior parietal cortex and bilateral pre-supplementary motor area during rapid-eye-movement sleep of subjects previously trained to the reaction time task compared to rapid-eye-movement sleep of untrained subjects. The increase in functional connectivity during post-training rapid-eye-movement sleep suggests that the brain areas reactivated during post-training rapid-eye-movement sleep participate in the optimization of the network that subtends subject's visuo-motor response. The optimization of this visuo-motor network during sleep could explain the gain in performance observed during the following day. [less ▲]

This study characterizes hypnagogic hallucinations reported during a polygraphically recorded 90-min daytime nap following or preceding practice of the computer game Tetris. In the experimental group (N = 16), participants played Tetris in the morning for 2 h during three consecutive days, while in a first control group (N = 13, controlling the effect of experience) participants did not play any game, and in a second control group (N = 14, controlling the effect of anticipation) participants played Tetris after the nap. During afternoon naps, participants were repetitively awakened 15, 45, 75, 120 or 180 s after the onset of S1, and were asked to report their mental content. Reports content was scored by three judges (inter-rater reliability 85%). In the experimental group, 48 out of 485 (10%) sleep-onset reports were Tetris-related. They mostly consisted of images and sounds with very little emotional content. They exactly reproduced Tetris elements or mixed them with other mnemonic components. By contrast, in the first control group, only one report out of 107 was scored as Tetris-related (1%), and in the second control group only three reports out of 112 were scored as Tetris-related (3%; between-groups comparison; P = 0.006). Hypnagogic hallucinations were more consistently induced by experience than by anticipation (P = 0.039), and they were predominantly observed during the transition of wakefulness to sleep. The observed attributes of experience-related hypnagogic hallucinations are consistent with the particular organization of regional brain activity at sleep onset, characterized by high activity in sensory cortices and in the default-mode network.

Abstract 1. History of the Meuse salmon project in Walloon Region A 'Meuse Salmon' project aiming at restoring an Atlantic salmon run in the River Meuse basin was put forward in 1983 (after the discovery of several 'sea trout' in the Meuse near Liège) and started officially in 1987 as a contribution of Wallonia to the European Year of Environment. In the course of this programme, most dams (3-8 m in height) obstructing the canalised River Meuse in Belgium and The Netherlands have been fitted with modern fish-ways in order to restore the free circulation of diadromous fish species. A second facet of the Salmon Meuse programme consisted in restocking salmonid streams in the Belgian Ardennes with hatchery reared salmon parr and smolt (maximum 200.000 fish per year) from foreign origins (Scotland, Ireland and France). Returning adult salmon have been scientifically recorded in the Meuse in The Netherlands (estuary and lower course) since 1994 but only since the year 2002 in Belgium: 13 (61-79 cm FL) fish in 2002 and 2 (71-76 cm FL) fish in 2003 caught mostly (13 fish) in a new big fish-pass at the Visé-Lixhe dam and (2 fish) in the River Berwinne, a small tributary of the Meuse known as the last spawning place for S. salar in Belgium in the 1920's. In 2004 returning adult salmon were not recorded in Belgian waters. Female and male returning salmon in 2002 were successfully artificially reproduced in order to build a captive freshwater brood stock to be used for production of parrs and smolts of the new Meuse strain. In 2006 a new salmon farming center will be inaugurated in Erezée (River Aisne) and will produce 200.000 juvenile Atlantic Salmon per year. 2. Monitoring of the downstream migration of smolts As the return of adult A. salmon in spawning tributaries will be permitted by the building of efficient fish passes, the success of the Meuse salmon project will mainly be influenced by the potentiality of smolts to migrate downstream. Hydroelectric power plants are frequent in the River Meuse and in its tributaries and new installations are scheduled in the next years. In wallonia, the dynamic of the downstream migration of A. salmon smolts was essentially studied in a small downstream fish trap located in the river Samson, a small tributary of the R. Meuse. Precious informations on the timing of migration and on the characteristics of the migrants were annually collected since the late eighties. In 2000, a downstream migration trap was experimented in the Visé-Lixhe dam in the main course of the river Meuse. Results bring additional information on the potential cumulate mortality between the River Samson and the Lixhe dam using mark-recapture techniques. Currently our objective is to study the entire dynamic of the downstream migrations of the smolts from the tributaries, to the Belgian border using biotelemetry techniques. A first successful experiment was carried out on 2004 on a single sea trout smolt individual that was continuously radio-tracked from Liège to Lixhe from a small boat. This spring, a similar experiment on a greater scale (up to 20 tracked individuals) will be carried out in the river Meuse and its tributaries. The communication briefly presents the different results of the monitoring of the downstream migration of smolts in Wallonia and give informations on the techniques and methodologies employed as well as new challenges for the future. An additional part of the communication reports on results of a parallel research axis as concerns the behavioural ecology of A. salmon parrs using radio telemetry. [less ▲]

Based on interviews conducted with students carrying out or having stayed abroad, the paper analyses the importance of these experiences in the young people's self-construction. Having proposed a typology, it develops some aspects of cultural exchanges at the heart of these experiences. The student mobility is seen as a particularly interesting way to answer young people's double demands : self-construction through experiences abroad while remaining integrated in a student course and developing skills that will facilitate integration into the professional world.

Seeing a bright light at the end of a tunnel or having a sense of being out of the physical body are phenomena that some patients report after having been close to death. Some spiritual and psychological theories have been developed in order to explain these near-death-experiences. Clinical studies have aimed to determine their frequency and to assess their precipitating factors. Recent neuroimaging studies, however, have shown the involvement of the temporo-parietal cortex in the generation of out-of-body experiences and are offering a physiological, neurological account for the phenomenon, rebuffing dualistic, non-physical explanations.
