A 1.85-kg, 6-yr-old, captive-bred, male boa constrictor (Boa constrictor imperator) was presented for lethargy, anorexia, postural abnormalities, and had an elongated mass on its ventrum, 20 cm distal to the snout. Clinical examination revealed a firm, nonmobile coelomic mass (4 cm × 2 cm) and loss of the righting reflex. Hematology showed a significant increase in white blood cells, lymphocytosis, and anemia. Cytologic examination of the blood smears showed the presence of lymphoid leukemia and eosinophilic intracytoplasmic inclusions consistent with inclusion body disease (IBD). Hyperphosphatemia was suggestive of renal failure. Radiography and ultrasound revealed a soft tissue mass at the level of the thymus proximal to, and distinct from, the heart. Cytology and postmortem histopathology confirmed the presence of a multicentric lymphoblastic lymphoma, lymphoid leukemia, and IBD. It remains unclear whether the neoplasms began their proliferation within the bone marrow or whether leukemia was a feature of disseminated, end-stage lymphoma. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVES: The aim of this study was to investigate the relationship between medial cortical activation and the presence of self and consciousness in healthy subjects and patients with vegetative state and minimally conscious state using functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI). EXPERIMENT DESIGN: We first conducted two fMRI experiments in healthy subjects to identify brain regions specifically associated with self-perception through the use of different auditory stimuli that had different grades of self-relatedness. We then applied these regions as functional localizers to examine the relationship between neural activity changes during self-relatedness and consciousness level in the patients with disorders of consciousness (DOC). PRINCIPAL OBSERVATIONS: We demonstrated recruitment of various anterior medial cortical regions including the anterior cingulate cortex (ACC) in healthy subjects during auditory perception of self-related stimuli. We further showed that patients with DOC showed signal changes in the ACC during auditory perception of self-related stimuli. Finally, it was shown that these signal changes correlate with the level of consciousness in the patients with DOC. CONCLUSION: The degree of consciousness in patients with DOC was correlated with neural activity in the ACC induced by self-related stimuli. Our results not only shed light on the pathophysiology of DOC, but may also suggest a useful neural, and thus diagnostic, marker of the dysfunction of consciousness in vegetative patients. [less ▲]

Progressive supranuclear palsy is the prototype of subcortical dementia. Using positron emission tomography and statistical parametric mapping, we compared the glucose metabolic pattern obtained in this subcortical dementia to that observed in elderly healthy controls and in Alzheimer's disease, the prototype of cortical dementia. Progressive supranuclear palsy was characterized by a relative decrease of metabolism in anterior cingulate, adjacent supplementary motor area, precentral cortex, middle prefrontal cortex, midbrain tegmentum, globus pallidus, and ventrolateral and dorsomedial nuclei of thalamus. The data in progressive supranuclear palsy highlight predominant metabolic impairment in brain structures engaged in response selection, in attention for action, and in motor networks. [less ▲]

We report neuropsychological and neuroimaging investigations performed in a patient suffering from presenile onset degenerative dementia and subsequent mild extrapyramidal and pyramidal signs. Early neuropsychological testing revealed frontal lobe dysfunction. Neuroanatomical pictures were not contributive. After four years of evolution, the clinical pattern was consistent with progressive supranuclear palsy. Statistical parametric mapping analysis of functional imaging revealed a highly significant metabolic impairment in the anterior cingulate gyrus, that might be a key feature of subcortico-frontal dementia in progressive supranuclear palsy.

In Posidonia oceanica (L.) Delile, anthesis induces a decrease in the number of juvenile leaves resulting in a significant reduction in the number of leaves on the flowering shoots. All the leaves of the flowering shoots are narrower than the leaves of nonflowering shoots. A modification of the leaf growth also appears in flowering shoots: the oldest leaves are longer and the leaves induced during or after anthesis are shorter. At 10 m depth, in the Bay of Calvi, anthesis lasts roughly 3 months and the flowering is induced 7 months before anthesis. [less ▲]

En une cinquantaine de slides schématiques, le document présente brièvement les deux grandes dimensions de la pensée de Giddens : sa théorie de la structuration, où l'action est conçue comme flux continu de pratiques sociales réflexivement contrôlées ; et d'autre part, sa théorie de la modernisation avec les dimensions de réflexivité, d'auto-référentialité, de risque et de sécurité ontologique. La présentation sert à situer les apports principaux de Giddens et à préparer à une lecture en séminaire de "Modernity and self-identity". [less ▲]

Mettre en évidence la relation entre occupation humaine et distribution de la végétation est l’un des points abordés par CoForChange. Les récentes études montrent que les perturbations anthropiques ont eu une influence sur la végétation, permettant notamment l’expansion des espèces héliophiles (cf. Lettre n° 4). Pour contribuer à cette analyse dans un contexte de grande rareté des données anthracologiques en Afrique, nous avons, dans le cadre d’un master, choisi d’étudier les charbons de bois issus de neuf fosses pédologiques du projet CoForChange. L’objectif était d’appréhender les compositions floristiques actuelle et passée des forêts au regard des perturbations passées. Deux protocoles anthracologiques d’identification ont été testés : a) à l’échelle de l’espèce, par une description des caractères anatomiques des charbons de bois, une recherche sur la base de données en ligne InsideWood et une comparaison anatomique au Xylarium de Tervuren ; b) à l’échelle de la communauté, par une recherche des relations statistiques entre traits écologiques des espèces et anatomie du bois. Les résultats montrent que la diversité taxonomique sous les forêts à Marantaceae est plus grande que sous les forêts denses de terre ferme. Trois identifications ont été obtenues sur 48 taxons décrits : Gilbertiodendron dewevrei sous forêt monodominante à G. dewevrei (GIB1 à 40 cm de profondeur, 1 510 ± 30 années cal. BP (calibrated before present), Millettia drastica et Pterocarpus soyauxii sous forêt clairsemée à Marantaceae (F9 à 40 cm, 1 200 ± 30 cal. BP). Notre hypothèse est que les peuplements monodominants à G. dewevrei sont relativement stables. Quant à P. soyauxii, la proportion de cette espèce héliophile semble décroître au cours du temps (niveaux entre 20 et 40 cm) au profit desMarantaceae. Un autre résultat porte sur l’absence de Triplochiton scleroxylon sous T. scleroxylon, ce qui pourrait confirmer l’hypothèse du caractère récent de ces peuplements. Les résultats portant sur la relation entre anatomie du bois et traits fonctionnels restant préliminaires, cette recherche sera poursuivie en thèse de doctorat. Les développements actuels de l’anthracologie pour l’Afrique tropicale permettent désormais d’envisager un plus grand nombre d’identifications par échantillon et ainsi une meilleure connaissance de l’évolution des forêts tropicales.
