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 ▲]

Background: Motor fatigue and ambulation impairment are prominent clinical features of people with multiple sclerosis (pMS). We hypothesized that a multimodal and comparative assessment of walking speed on short and long distance would allow a better delineation and quantification of gait fatigability in pMS. Objectives: To compare 4 walking paradigms: the timed 25-foot walk (T25FW), a corrected version of the T25FW with dynamic start (T25FW+), the timed 100-meter walk (T100MW) and the timed 500-meter walk (T500MW). Methods: Thirty controls and 81 pMS performed the 4 walking tests in a single study visit. Results: The 4 walking tests were performed with a slower WS in pMS compared to controls even in subgroups with minimal disability. The finishing speed of the last 100-meter of the T500MW was the slowest measurable WS whereas the T25FW+ provided the fastest measurable WS. The ratio between such slowest and fastest WS (Deceleration Index, DI) was significantly lower only in pMS with EDSS 4.0-6.0, a pyramidal or cerebellar functional system score reaching 3 or a maximum reported walking distance !4000m. Conclusion: The motor fatigue which triggers gait deceleration over a sustained effort in pMS can be measured by the WS ratio between performances on a very short distance and the finishing pace on a longer more demanding task. The absolute walking speed is abnormal early in MS whatever the distance of effort when patients are unaware of ambulation impairment. In contrast, the DI-measured ambulation fatigability appears to take place later in the disease course. [less ▲]

Dans la Belgique de cette fin de siècle, il ne semble pas que la jeunesse soit à la mode ou que la mode soit à la jeunesse comme durant les années soixante, à un moment où une génération, numériquement nombreuse, était apparue sur la scène sociale, plus différente que jamais des anciennes générations. Pourtant, les jeunes sont bien présents. Présents dans les revendications estudiantines qui ont secoué la Belgique francophone entre 1994 et 1996, dans les centres destinés à prolonger la formation de ceux qui ont décroché du système scolaire traditionnel, dans les émeutes urbaines qui ont secoué en 1997 les quartiers défavorisés de Bruxelles, dans des établissements scolaires de zones d’éducation prioritaire où parfois des enseignants sont victimes d’agression, dans les campagnes prophylactiques ou dans les enquêtes sur la santé physique et mentale, dans les représentations sociales de l’insécurité urbaine. On les retrouve également au cœur d’actions politiques qui sont plus particulièrement destinées à faciliter leur insertion professionnelle. Le statut qu’on leur reconnaît associe âge et rapport problématique à la formation ou au monde du travail. [less ▲]

In a gynecological cancer unit, nurses and care assistants work together in treating their patients with a « global approach to the person ». Such an approach implies that the tumor, the body, the physical appearances, and the emotional well-being of each patient are all considered at the time of treatment. As such, they pay close attention to their patients' personal views and emotions which are expressed to them both verbally and physically. Through their presence, their availability and their knowledge of this incurable disease, the nursing staff has a privileged relationship with their patients. In this regard, their continued treatment of cancer patients takes a toll on their emotions, which they speak about to each other and note in the patient's file. In this paper, through an ethnography of narratives and through my personal observations of care practices, I will be analyzing both the patients' and nursing staff's sharing of emotions as well as the way in which they are expressed and communicated.
