The San Antonio Bay (SAB), in Patagonia, Argentina, harbors a resident population of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus gephyreus). It seems a privileged area to give birth and nurse calves. In the context of declining populations worldwide and more particularly in South America, preserving the SAB population takes a considerable significance. Yet the SAB is facing human population growth and touristic development, which represent potential threats for the dolphin population, especially dolphin-watching activities. In this context, the aim of this study was to understand the bottlenose dolphin’s habitat use within the bay, and to consider how this information could be used in prospective management strategies. Particularly, we aimed at using the Kernel Density Estimation (KDE) method to map the intensity of space use for essential behavioural patterns. To this end, we collected behavioural information on dolphins during 25 boat-based surveys in the bay in 2011. The habitat use of the bay was heterogeneous: some areas were more intensely used than others. Dolphins spent most of their time traveling and diving. Variables associated to resting behaviours, e.g. school size and depth, indicated that the SAB would be a safer place compared to other known residency areas, confirming its suitability for conservation purposes. KDE analyses showed that behaviours are not evenly distributed inside the bay. Bottlenose dolphins being more sensitive to anthropogenic disturbances while engaged in resting or socializing behaviours, it is crucial to locate these behaviours. In SAB, the KDE shows that resting and socializing areas are located in the Northern part of the bay, indicating that it should constitute a priority protected area in potential future management strategies. Furthermore, our results show that the KDE method is an appropriate and advantageous tool when determining critical habitats, worth being more widely used. [less ▲]

The most reproducible and ubiquitous interictal abnormality of the migraineurs' brain is lack of habituation in neuronal information processing. The underlying mechanisms are uncertain. Increased neuronal excitability, decreased inhibition or decreased pre-activation levels have all been proposed as possible culprits. The present review summarizes the available data on habituation in migraine patients obtained with different methodological approaches. We will discuss the change of habituation level over the migraine cycle and we will show that these data congruently indicate that the sensory cortices of migraineurs react excessively to repetitive, but not to a small series of stimuli. Although the precise cellular and molecular mechanisms of this hyper-responsivity must still be determined, we will describe experimental data suggesting that a dysrhythmic thalamo-cortical activity due to inadequate monoaminergic control might be a plausible explanation.

Background: Familial hemiplegic migraine (FHM) is a rare, dominantly inherited subtype of migraine with transient hemiplegia during the aura phase. Mutations in at least three different genes can produce the FHM phenotype. The mutated FHM genes code for ion transport proteins that animal and cellular studies have associated with disturbed ion homeostasis, altered cellular excitability, neurotransmitter release, and decreased threshold for cortical spreading depression. The common forms of migraine are characterized interictally by a habituation deficit of cortical and subcortical evoked responses that has been attributed to neuronal dysexcitability. FHM and the common forms of migraine are thought to belong to a spectrum of migraine phenotypes with similar pathophysiology, and we therefore examined whether an abnormal habituation pattern would also be found in FHM patients. Methods: In a group of genotyped FHM patients (five FHM-1, four FHM-2), we measured habituation of visual evoked potentials (VEP), auditory evoked potentials including intensity dependence (IDAP), the nociception-specific blink reflex (nsBR) and compared the results to a group of healthy volunteers (HV). Results: FHM patients had a more pronounced habituation during VEP (P = 0.025) and nsBR recordings (P = 0.023) than HV. There was no difference for IDAP, but the slope tended to be steeper in FHM. Conclusion: Contrary to the common forms of migraine, FHM patients are not characterized by a deficient, but rather by an increased habituation in cortical/brain stem evoked activities. These results suggest differences between FHM and the common forms of migraine, as far as central neuronal processing is concerned. [less ▲]

Between attacks, migraine with (MO) or without aura (MA) patients show deficient habituation of pattern-reversal visual evoked potentials (PR-VEP) and a strong intensity dependence of auditory evoked cortical potentials (IDAP). Clinical observations of migraine prodromes and previously published electrophysiological studies suggest that cortical information processing may vary in close temporal relationship to the attack. We studied PR-VEP and IDAP just before (11 MO pts), during (23 MO, 3 MA), 1 day following (27 MO, 1 MA) and 2 days following (14 MO) a migraine attack. The results were compared with a large group of MO patients recorded at a distance of at least 3 days from an attack (n = 66 for IDAP; n = 39 for VEP). Patients recorded the day before the attack had on average an habituation of -13.6+/-20.5% (mean +/- SD) between the 5th and 1st block of 100 averaged VEP responses and a flat (0.38+/-1.06 microV/10 dB) amplitude-stimulus intensity function (ASF) slope of the auditory evoked cortical potential. Both values were significantly different from those obtained in the attack interval (P=0.003; P=0.020). During the attack, VEP habituation was less pronounced (-0.17+/-26.2%) and ASF slopes remained flat (0.32+/-1.44 microV/10 dB; P=0.002 compared to interval). During the 2 days following the attack, VEP habituation was replaced by potentiation (+0.09+/-29.1% the 1st day; 19.5+/-45.7% the 2nd day) and ASF slopes increased markedly (0.87+/-1.39 and 1.14+/-1.12 microV/10 dB). The normalization of evoked cortical responses just before and during the attack, might reflect an increase in the cortical preactivation level due to enhanced activity in raphe-cortical serotonergic pathways.

Introduction: les habitudes de sommeil chez les enfants sont éminemment variables suivant les enfants, les âges, les habitudes ou contraintes familiales. Elles sont d’autre part peu connues et peu investiguées en consultation. Mais peut-on relever des différences entre une population générale "normale" et une population prise en charge dans des consultations psychologiques ambulatoires? Méthode: un questionnaire concernant les habitudes de sommeil a été distribué à des parents d’enfants fréquentant l’enseignement ordinaire et à des parents d’enfants fréquentant des consultations psychologiques ambulatoires. 496 réponses (356 pour la population générale et 140 pour les enfants suivis en consultation) ont été recueillies et analysées. Des différences de distributions ont été mises en évidence entre les 2 groupes et des corrélations recherchées. Paramètres recherchés : - le nombre d’heures de sommeil par nuit en semaine et le week-end ; - le nombre d’enfants « couche-tôt » ou « couche-tard » ; - les caractéristiques de l’endormissement: l’enfant retarde la mise au lit, il a besoin d’une sucette/ d’un doudou/ d’un morceau de tissu/ d’un biberon/ de lumière ou noir complet/ d’une TV/ que la porte soit ouverte/ il manifeste un inconfort/ des peurs/ il s’endort seul dans sa chambre ou en présence d’un adulte avec éventuellement le besoin de tenir physiquement cet adulte/ durée moyenne de l’endormissement - l’endroit où dort l’enfant : dans sa chambre, avec un frère/ une sœur, dans la chambre des parents, dans une pièce de séjour commune … - les caractéristiques du temps de sommeil : sommeil agité, réveils nocturnes, cauchemars, cherche à rejoindre ses parents pendant la nuit Conclusions: les comportements liés au sommeil différencient spécifiquement le groupe des enfants recrutés dans les Services de Santé Mentale par rapport au groupe témoin. Dans notre pratique, une anamnèse détaillée dans ce domaine permet d’attirer l’attention sur une population fragile, à examiner plus attentivement et éventuellement à prendre en charge dès que possible. Une information et une aide pour les parents est à envisager très précocement; une information serait utile également pour les différents professionnels (puéricultrices, enseignants, éducateurs, médecins traitants...).
