There is no doubt that motivaton of schoolchildren is a concern for physical education teachers. Research data shows that usually physical education is pretty well considered by students. An European study of youth lifestyle showed that in many countries, 12 and 15 year old students like physical education (Piéron et al., 1996). Percentage over 70% of these youth answered that they liked physical education lessons ... [less ▲]

A model explaining college performance is proposed where motivation, volition, and study strategies are combined as predictors. Mastery-approach goals are positive predictors and avoidance-goals negative predictors of volitional control intentions of effort. These intentions are positive predictors of endorsement of study strategies intentions. The last ones and intentions of voltional control of effort are positive antecedents of corresponding behaviours, which positively predict exam performances [less ▲]

The introduction of rules and procedures to guide front-line operators’ behaviour and to decrease the frequency of errors is a growing safety strategy in complex, risk systems. It is thought to be a useful way of controlling and standardising human practices and of increasing safety and quality. However, merely developing procedures does not ensure that they are followed. In this study, observation was used to collect information on procedural violations in a pharmaceutical company. Interviews were conducted with the operators and the prescriptors to better understand how and why these violations were occurring. Results showed that a small number of procedures were breached by the majority of operators and that the rules which were violated were the ones associated with a perception of minimum risk. Results suggest the rationality of operators is a response to cognitive and social influences which must be taken into account when designing procedures. [less ▲]

D’importants problèmes de santé sont identifiés par les professionnels chez les adolescents. Toutefois, ces problèmes de santé ne sont que peu ou pas soulevés par les adolescents eux-mêmes car ils consultent peu à ce sujet. En particulier, ils évoquent rarement les aspects psychosociaux des problèmes auxquels ils sont confrontés. Ils fonctionnent dans le clivage entre somatique et psychologique bien que ces deux aspects soient indissociables. Les adolescents sont souvent amenés en consultation par d’autres, dont les parents. Un travail d’identification de la demande réelle de l’adolescent est donc nécessaire pour que celui-ci puisse se mobiliser vers une prise en charge. La confidentialité est cruciale de même que le respect de l’adolescent, ainsi que la reconnaissance de ses craintes et des limites qu’il met à l’accès aux informations par l’anamnèse et l’examen clinique. Il appartient au médecin de lire la demande de l’adolescent dans un double registre, à la fois somatique et psychique et de resituer cette demande dans le contexte de vie particulier à l’adolescent. Aussi, la lecture de la demande intégrera non seulement les problèmes invoqués par l’adolescent mais aussi ceux relevés par l’anamnèse et l’examen clinique. Une telle lecture peut prendre du temps pour les intervenants de santé mais aussi pour l’adolescent, avant qu’il n’aboutisse à l’émergence de sa demande et, dès lors, à une demande de prise en charge. Celle-ci devra parfois faire appel à une équipe spécifique et pluridisciplinaire telle que celle où collaborent les auteurs du présent article, au Centre de Santé de l’Adolescent à Liège. [less ▲]

Within the EURECA project (Towards self-sustainable EUropean REgional CAttle breeds), we interviewed a total of 371 farmers of 15 local cattle breeds in eight European countries. Besides collecting data on farmers, land use, herd composition and economic role of cattle, we aimed at understanding farmers’ motives and values in keeping local cattle. The most frequent first reason to keep the local breed was productivity, followed by tradition. When comparing the local breed with a mainstream breed, only in four breeds was productivity considered the same, while in three breeds more than 50 percent of farmers valued the local breed as more profitable. The local breed was valued as always superior or the same on functional traits. Farmers were asked which type of appreciation they thought representatives of various stakeholders had on their local breed: a positive appreciation was observed in 33 percent of farmers. On average across breeds, 39 percent of farmers expect to increase the size of their herd in the next few years and 5 percent plan to give up farming. The degree of dependence of farmers on economic incentives was estimated by asking farmers their expected behaviour under three scenarios of change of subsidies. Most farmers demanded activities for promoting local breed farming. The results are discussed in terms of breed sustainability and conservation. [less ▲]

There are many reasons explaining why students choose one professional project and/or an academic programme. Usually, they consider higher education according to various aspects focusing on the content of the programme as well as on professions to which the latter leads. This study is in the field on comparative education. It offers a comprehensive reading of two education systems in a spirit of openness and expansion of knowledge. With inspiration from two studies conducted in the education of physical educators in very different cultural contexts (Research Group MJS, 1993, for Algeria – Groupe de recherche interuniversitaire, 2003, for French-speaking Belgium), we have assumed that the students’ motives for registering in studies in physical education should differ considerably. The purpose of this research has therefore been to determine the reasons motivating students to begin a physical education programme at the university or at a non university context. Our research was based, firstly, on the analysis of official texts concerning the organization of higher education in the field of physical education and, secondly, on data collected from the actions involved in four educational institutions, two in the Algiers region and two in the Liege region. In both cultural contexts, one institution belonged to one university and the other one was organized in a non university context. Our results relate to a total sample of 290 subjects (40 members of teaching staffs, 108 students and 142 graduates). The staff members were interviewed while the subjects of two other groups have responded to questionnaires. The Arabic version of each instrument was translated from an original French version. One expert has assured the validity check. In this paper, we are focusing our attention on the analysis of the responses provided by the three types of actors to a question aiming to identify, through four levels Lickert scales, the degree of importance accorded by subject to nine reasons of registration for studies in physical education. Answer were encoded in a computer database and processed using the Statistica software (Stat Soft, 2006). No significant difference was identified when comparing the answers of respondents. However, we noticed that the love of sport and the desire to do sport belonged to the most important reasons for the registration of the new students for training programs in physical education. Cultural context does not seem to affect the opinions of the subjects. [less ▲]

Clinical, electrophysiological, histological and neuroendocrinological findings in a peculiar form of progressive spinal and bulbar muscular atrophy affecting 4 members in two different families are reported. The clinical hallmarks, which characterize this entity among the group of degenerative motor neuron diseases are: sex-linked recessive inheritance; onset in the third decade; slow progression; involvement of facial and bulbar muscles in addition to wasting of the proximal and, in some cases, the distal musculature; asymmetry of clinical signs; consistent and abundant fasciculations predominantly in the peri-oral muscles; intention tremor and a well-developed gynaecomastia, which is the first clinical sign. Electrophysiological and histological findings confirm the neurogenic origin of the muscular atrophy; in addition, muscle biopsy shows "myopathic-like" changes in one case and serum muscle enzyme levels are elevated in all neurologically affected patients. It is believed that the clinical entity corresponds to the rare type III proximal hereditary motor neuropathy (or "Kennedy's disease"), of which 25 published cases are reviewed. Neuroendocrinological data in two patients demonstrate an androgenic insufficiency of hypothalamo-hypophyseal origin and high levels of circulating oestrogens, which probably have induced gynaecomastia. Dynamic neuroendocrinological tests suggest that lesions of certain hypothalamic nuclei may exist, which should be looked for in the forthcoming anatomical studies. [less ▲]

OBJECTIVES: As repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is often applied on different days, it is of interest to know whether motor (MT) and phosphene (PT) thresholds are reproducible across time and whether the intensity determined on the first day can be used in subsequent sessions. METHODS: We studied MT and PT over 5 separate recordings in 10 healthy volunteers using a focal coil and a Magstim(Rapid stimulator. After the initial recording (session 1), the others (2 to 5) were performed respectively after 1 day, 7 days, 1 month and 4 months. RESULTS: Mean MT at rest were 65.30 +/- 5.54%, 65.7 +/- 7.18%, 60.4 +/- 4.27%, 61.8 +/- 4.34%, and 63 +/- 9.1% at sessions 1 to 5. Mean PT were 71.43 +/- 6.68%, 66.29 +/- 10.67%, 60.71 +/- 8.64%, 60.57 +/- 8.08%, and 68.71 +/- 15.48% at sessions 1 to 5. MT and PT were reproducible (ANOVA analysis), however, as shown by coefficients of variation, variability between the first 3 sessions exceeded 10% for MT in 3 subjects and in 4 subjects for PT. CONCLUSIONS: It seems preferable to determine thresholds and adapt output intensity of the stimulator at each rTMS session. [less ▲]

Twenty Alzheimer's disease (AD) patients, 20 subcortical ischemic vascular dementia (SIVD) patients and 20 neurologically and cognitively normal subjects underwent transcranial magnetic stimulation to study motor cortex excitability changes. Motor threshold (MT), amplitude of motor evoked potentials, silent period and the H/M ratio (amplitude of maximal Hoffman reflex vs. that of maximal motor response) were considered. MT was lower in SIVD patients when compared with AD patients (P = 0.003) and the control group (P < 0.001) and lower in AD patients when compared with the control group (P < 0.001). The increment of motor cortex excitability in AD and SIVD did not lead us to distinguish clearly the two types of dementia. It is likely that the electrophysiological similarity between AD and SIVD could represent another common mechanism shared from these forms of dementia. [less ▲]
