The limits of prematurity don’t stop moving back and very premature children with a very low birth weight survive. Since a short time studies have been conducted on the cognitive and language evolution of those children. This present study aims to determine the nature of language repercussions of extremely prematurity birth by focusing more particularly on spontaneous language. Language performances of 23 children born at less than 26 weeks of gestational age will be compared to the ones of 23 children born at term, paired by age (between 6 and 8 years old), sex and sociocultural level. Two tasks will be compared : a task of descriptive language (narration based on pictures) and a test of informative language in which the child will have to transmit some precise information on the realization of familiar actions. The children’s productions have been written down, then analysed from a lexical, syntactic and semantic point of view. Results show that the two groups of children do not differ in the task of descriptive language but differences emerge in the task of informative language. On lexical level the richness and variety of words used by premature children seem poorer than the ones used by children born at term. From the syntactic point of view the average length of utterances of premature children is inferior to the one of children born at term. At last the semantic analyses show that the premature children express less ideas and that the semantic content of the given ideas is less rich in comparison with the children born at term. In conclusion this study suggests that the discursive level of highly premature children mustn’t only be tested with descriptive tasks but also with informative tasks which seem more sensible to the specific weaknesses of that population.

Viewed from its origin, composition, and physicochemical properties, milk fat-globule membrane (MFGM) appears to act as a good, natural emulsifier and should be also considered as a potential stabilizing agent in the preparation of certain foods, e.g. creams and emulsions, infant formulas, and reduced-fat products. The present work was undertaken in an attempt to gain further information on the physicochemical properties of MFGM. In particular, the purpose of this study was to determine surface properties of a soluble fraction of MFGM (SFMFGM) using a film balance and to investigate the changes in the surface activity at different temperatures, which may occur during milk cream ripening or during heat and mechanical treatments of dairy products. The results showed that film balance measurements at the air/water interface actually provided a useful method for the study of SFMFGM monolayers. It was deduced from the compression isotherms that the SFMFGM films spread at the air/water interface presented a different behavior when the temperature varied from 4 to 40 degrees C. [less ▲]

Milk is a natural complex system present as oil in water emulsion. The natural organisation of milk fat globules is stabilized by the presence of a natural membrane, called the milk fat globule membrane (MFGM). It has tripartite structure consisting of a monolayer facing the inner triacylglycerol core and an external bilayer. This MFGM accounts for 2-6% of fat globule. The MFGM is composed of both polar lipids and proteins. Cholesterol is also present in MFGM and accounts for about 2% of MFGM. Langmuir film balance is a technique to study monolayers and is a useful tool to examine the effect of cholesterol removal on surface properties of MFGM. β-cyclodextrin has no surface activity of its own and is thus a useful tool to study the effect of cholesterol desorption on surface properties in membrane. The removal of monolayer cholesterol to the sub-phase is proportional to the area decrease of the monolayer at a constant surface pressure. Amount of cholesterol removed can also be calculated as a function of mean molecular area at a given pressure, time and temperature. Using the monolayer technique, it is possible to study the interactions between β-cyclodextrin and MFGM film as well as effect of cholesterol removal in altering the surface properties MFGM.

Analogical reasoning shares a mutual influence with language development: analogical reasoning is improved by labelling analogical items with words describing the relations that they contain. Conversely, structural alignment, a core mechanism of analogical reasoning, allows the acquisition of novel words and the development of grammar (Gentner, 2010). Given those findings, some authors have taken interest in the analogical reasoning ability of children with language disorders, and specifically of children with Specific Language Impairment (SLI). Those children have worse performance than their age-matched peers without language disorders in linguistic or non-linguistic analogical tasks (Leroy, Maillart, & Parisse, 2014). Our aim here is to see if this weakness is due to their language disorders and if they use the same verbal strategies as their peers to solve an analogical task. To experience these assumptions, we use a perceptual analogical task following an A:B::C:D paradigm: participants have to find the relation between two geometric forms A and B and to apply it to the C term in order to find the D term among distractors. The distractors either share perceptual features with the C term, what creates a competition that shall be inhibited, or not. Moreover, children are faced with three interfering task conditions: one without any interfering task, one with an articulatory suppression secondary task and one with a tapping secondary task, which is used in order to measure the general dual task demands. Comparing the results of these conditions will allow us to evaluate the impact of language and verbal strategies on analogical reasoning in control and SLI children. [less ▲]

In this paper, we will try to supply at least a partial answer to the three following questions. First, what language levels are reached by adults with Down syndrome? Second, is there progress in language or some aspects of it beyond adolescence and during the adult years? This question is related to the issue of a critical period for language development raised by Eric Lenneberg (1967). Third, what is the effect of ageing on the language of persons with Down syndrome, including those who develop Alzheimer disease in old age? [less ▲]

Several cross-sectional studies and one longitudinal study were conducted on the language abilities of various cohorts of persons with Down syndrome aged between 14 and 50 years. No significant difference was observed on any of the receptive and productive morphosyntactic and lexical measures used, suggesting no marked change in the language of these persons from adolescence onto late adulthood. Repeated measures of cerebral metabolic rate (CMR) for fluorodeoxyglucose using a Positron Emission Tomography were made over a 4-year interval with 7 participants with Down syndrome aged between 37 and 49 years. A gradual decrease in global CMR for both cerebral hemispheres and for each participant was documented. It was particularly marked for 3 participants. However, no language deterioration could be associated with their marked lowering in CMR. [less ▲]

Short-term maintenance of verbal information is a core factor of language repetition, especially when reproducing multiple or unfamiliar stimuli. Many models of language processing locate the verbal short-term maintenance function in the left posterior superior temporo-parietal area and its connections with the inferior frontal gyrus. However, research in the field of short-term memory has implicated bilateral fronto-parietal networks, involved in attention and serial order processing, as being critical for the maintenance and reproduction of verbal sequences. We present here an integrative framework aimed at bridging research in the language processing and short-term memory fields. This framework considers verbal short-term maintenance as an emergent function resulting from synchronized and integrated activation in dorsal and ventral language processing networks as well as fronto-parietal attention and serial order processing networks. To-be-maintained item representations are temporarily activated in the dorsal and ventral language processing networks, novel phoneme and word serial order information is proposed to be maintained via a right fronto-parietal serial order processing network, and activation in these different networks is proposed to be coordinated and maintained via a left fronto-parietal attention processing network. This framework provides new perspectives for our understanding of information maintenance at the nonword-, word- and sentence-level as well as of verbal maintenance deficits in case of brain injury.
