Autobiographical memory in amnestic Mild Cognitive Impairment (aMCI) is characterized by impaired retrieval of episodic memories, but relatively preserved personal semantic knowledge. This study aimed to identify (via FDG-PET) the neural substrates of impaired episodic specificity of autobiographical memories in 35 aMCI patients compared with 24 healthy elderly controls. Significant correlations between regional cerebral activity and the proportion of episodic details in autobiographical memories from two life periods were found in specific regions of an autobiographical brain network. In aMCI patients, more than in controls, specifically episodic memories from early adulthood were associated with metabolic activity in the cuneus and in parietal regions. We hypothesized that variable retrieval of episodic autobiographical memories in our aMCI patients would be related to their variable capacity to reactivate specific sensory-perceptual and contextual details of early adulthood events linked to reduced (occipito-parietal) visual imagery and less efficient (parietal) attentional processes. For recent memories (last year), a correlation emerged between the proportion of episodic details and activity in lateral temporal regions and the temporo-parietal junction. Accordingly, variable episodic memory for recent events may be related to the efficiency of controlled search through general events likely to provide cues for the retrieval of episodic details and to the ability to establish a self perspective favouring recollection.

Normal aging is characterized by decreased recollection, but better preserved familiarity. Memory tasks that facilitate the use of familiarity should allow attenuating age-related differences in memory. The study tested two hypotheses: (1) can the reliance on familiarity during recognition memory be promoted by increasing the difference in perceptual processing fluency between old and new items; (2) can this manipulation reduce age-related difficulties in episodic memory? Twenty-four young and 24 older adults performed two verbal recognition memory tasks. In the No-Overlap task, target words and new words did not share any letter. Prior exposition to the target words thus induced increased processing fluency of the words and letters, so that fluency difference was a salient and reliable cue to discriminate between old and new words. In the Overlap task, target and new words had letters in common, so fluency cues were less useful. Recollection and familiarity was assessed with the Remember/Know/Guess paradigm. The results showed an age effect on recollection but intact familiarity. Moreover, (1) memory performance was better in the No Overlap than the Overlap task, with a greater hit rate and a smaller false alarm rate associated with familiarity. And, (2) age-related differences in recognition accuracy (hits – false alarms) were significantly attenuated in the No Overlap task compared to the Overlap task. These findings suggest that minimizing the perceptual similarity between targets and distractors, and thus increasing processing fluency differences, allowed to reduce the effect of age on recognition memory performance by facilitating the use of familiarity.

We describe a child with facial dysmorphism (trigonocephaly, epicanthus, upturned nose, small ears), thumb hypoplasia, micropenis, jejunal atresia and moderate mental retardation with dysphasia. Cytogenetic workup revealed high spontaneous level of chromosomal aberrations (without specific pattern and no quadriradial figures) and borderline to absent hypersensitivity to mitomycin C, making a diagnosis of Fanconi anemia unlikely. The child described here shares similarities with a small number of previous reports. We suggest to refer to this entity as episphalosomic syndrome. Episphalosomic syndrome shows some clinical overlap with Fanconi anemia, but lacks its cytogenetic hallmark. The hematological complications of Fanconi anemia have not been reported in this entity.

Gene-gene interactions underlie biochemical pathways and have been well demonstrated in model organisms. Very few examples exist on replicated epistasis in humans. Here, we performed genome-wide scans to detect epistasis associated to Crohn’s disease (CD) and ulcerative colitis (UC). We used extensive data of the IIBDGC consisting of 18277 and 14224 CD and UC patients, respectively, and ~34050 healthy controls from 15 European countries typed on the Immunochip. At first, we removed rare variants at MAF<0.05 and filtered common variants at linkage disequilibrium (LD) of r2>0.75. To limit our results to independent effects, SNPs on chromosome 6 (which contains the HLA locus), were furthermore pruned to ensure an LD of r2<0.35. We adjusted the binary traits, CD and UC, for population stratification by regressing out the first 5 principal components in R-3.0.1. The study cohorts were randomly stratified into two subgroups (referred as discovery and replication). We then performed screenings for epistatic interactions with new adjusted trait values in the two subgroups using multidimensional reduction tool MB-MDR with permutation-based (step-down MaxT) multiple testing correction and significance assessment at 0.05. We identified 14 and 6 SNP-pairs associated to CD and UC, respectively, which were concordant between the discovery and replication groups. All SNP-pairs involved concomitant variants located on the same chromosomes (for CD at 1p31.3, 5p13.1, 16q12.1 and for UC at 1p31.3, 6p21.3). A more detailed investigation of these findings, as well as the implementation of different analysis protocols, will further increase our understanding of possible epistatic mechanisms underpinning IBD.

Academic wisdom assumes that crises precipitate institutional and policy changes in domestic and international politics. However, the relation between crises and policy outcomes is under-theorised. This article conceptualises epistemic coherence as a factor that links crises and their consequences through policy continuity. Crises expose contradictions and inconsistencies, which create uncertainty. Therefore, actors seek to recover the epistemic certainty provided by coherence, which tacitly informs, structures and simplifies actors’ interpretation of reality, even during crisis. For this reason, the role of coherence in policy ideas and institutional rules remains essential to understanding policy continuity. This article illustrates the role of coherence in the policy continuity of the European Neighbourhood Policy in the context of the Arab Spring and the changes in the institutional architecture of European Union foreign policy during 2010–2011.

Comment s’articulent, dans la compréhension du monde social, la démarche « savante » du sociologue et la compréhension « ordinaire » des acteurs ? S’impose-t-il de séparer a priori les deux pour aboutir à l’objectivité scientifique ou, au contraire, de les construire en continuité et dans un dialogue réciproque ? Le développement considérable des sciences sociales au cours du dernier demi-siècle n’a pas abouti à résoudre cette question de manière univoque. Au contraire, plus les sciences sociales – et la sociologie en particulier – ont scruté avec attention des objets concrets, plus les « postures » se sont diversifiées sur cette question. Adressé prioritairement à des étudiants de deuxième cycle, mais susceptible d’intéresser aussi le public non spécialiste, ce livre introduit de manière rigoureuse mais accessible à cette irréductible pluralité. Il passe en revue quelques-unes des positions sociologiques les plus contemporaines en tentant de relever chez chacune, les promesses et les limites, familiarisant le lecteur avec la nécessaire diffraction du regard qui s’impose pour « saisir » ce qui fait le monde social.
