This joint contribution interrogates the postcolonial relations that are at play in the Congolese political sphere in Belgium, the former colonial metropolis. Two lines of argument are developed. First, the politicisation of the postcolonial relations, which pre-dates the Congolese immigration to Belgium, is viewed from a historical perspective. Second, the highly competitive political plu- ralism, as observed since the early 2000s, is examined. After having restored historically the con- stitution and the reconstruction of this political sphere, wherein new technologies deepen the transnational movements, the authors will examine the tensions that arise from the unifying dynamics of the politically engaged Diaspora, on the one hand, and its intrinsic logics of division and fragmentation, on the other. The postcolonial issues that are at stake are to be seen on differ- ent levels: transnational, local, within the Diaspora, and between the Congolese minority and the Belgian majority. Their interconnectedness further reveals the postcolonial character of this political sphere. [less ▲]

Les événements des derniers jours à Louvain-la-Neuve remettent crûment en lumière l’absurdité de la gestion actuelle de la Poste belge. La direction de la Poste entend réaliser par tous les moyens des économies. Tous les moyens, cela signifie aussi de faire pression afin que l’on expulse des citoyens qui par leur action mettent en lumière les légitimes revendications de la population. Les citoyens ne sont pas dupes : remplacer des bureaux de poste par des points poste, ce n’est pas améliorer le service rendu. [...] [less ▲]

In 1954, at the age of 5 years, our patient had an encephalitic syndrome associated with a prolonged lethargic state. After this episode, he developed a severe parkinsonian syndrome that, after a few years, was associated with axial dystonia and stereotyped abnormal movements of the upper limbs. This complex and progressive extrapyramidal syndrome had many similarities to the encephalitis lethargica as described by von Economo. Results of cerebral computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging were normal. Fluorodopa positron emission tomography showed a significant bilateral reduction of tracer accumulation in both putamen, similar to that observed in patients with idiopathic Parkinson's disease. However, in this patient, treatment with L-Dopa suppressed all akinetic, dystonic and dyskinetic symptoms. The effectiveness of L-Dopa was abolished by administration of a D2 antagonist and was fully reproduced by a D2 agonist. In conclusion, this patient presented a complex postencephalitic, extrapyramidal syndrome, with akinetic symptoms and involuntary movements. These symptoms appeared to be related to a limited lesion of the dopaminergic neurons of the zona compacta of the substantia nigra. [less ▲]

Background: Recent studies have been shown that functional connectivity of cerebral areas is not a static phenomenon, but exhibits spontaneous fluctuations over time. There is evidence that fluctuating connectivity is an intrinsic phenomenon of brain dynamics that persists during anesthesia. Lately, point process analysis applied on functional data has revealed that much of the information regarding brain connectivity is contained in a fraction of critical time points of a resting state dataset. In the present study we want to extend this methodology for the investigation of resting state fMRI spatial pattern changes during propofol-induced modulation of consciousness, with the aim of extracting new insights on brain networks consciousness-dependent fluctuations. Methods: Resting-state fMRI volumes on 18 healthy subjects were acquired in four clinical states during propofol injection: wakefulness, sedation, unconsciousness, and recovery. The dataset was reduced to a spatio-temporal point process by selecting time points in the Posterior Cingulate Cortex (PCC) at which the signal is higher than a given threshold (i.e., BOLD intensity above 1 standard deviation). Spatial clustering on the PCC time frames extracted was then performed (number of clusters = 8), to obtain 8 different PCC co-activation patterns (CAPs) for each level of consciousness. Results: The current analysis shows that the core of the PCC-CAPs throughout consciousness modulation seems to be preserved. Nonetheless, this methodology enables to differentiate region-specific propofol-induced reductions in PCC-CAPs, some of them already present in the functional connectivity literature (e.g., disconnections of the prefrontal cortex, thalamus, auditory cortex), some others new (e.g., reduced co-activation in motor cortex and visual area). Conclusion: In conclusion, our results indicate that the employed methodology can help in improving and refining the characterization of local functional changes in the brain associated to propofol-induced modulation of consciousness.

The posterior epidural migration of sequestered lumbar disc fragments is an uncommon event. The authors report two such cases in which patients presented with either intense radicular pain or cauda equina syndrome. The radiological characteristics were the posterior epidural location and the ring enhancement of the mass after injection of contrast material. The major diagnostic pitfalls are discussed. [less ▲]

An a posteriori error estimation of finite element solutions based on the lack of fulfillment of weak formulations is developed and applied to low frequency electromagnetic problems. The error is quantified via higher order hierarchal test functions and local computations of their contributions on the solutions. The method only uses the weak formulation under study with no need of other kind of evaluation. [less ▲]

Cet article concerne le concept de réflexion et son importance pour la philosophie de l’art et de la politique depuis la modernité kantienne. Il s’organise en trois temps. Il s’agira d’abord d’interroger le concept de réflexion à l’œuvre dans la Critique de la raison pure et d’apprécier son rapport au jugement réfléchissant esthétique qui fait le cœur de la première partie de la Critique de la faculté de juger. Dans un deuxième temps, on montrera, en suivant H. Arendt, à quelle type de lecture politique ce problème esthétique kantien a pu donner lieu ; d’autre part, avec cette fois A. Badiou, on signalera à quelle sorte de critique s’expose la lecture arendtienne. L’objectif est en général de montrer qu’il est possible d’allier les propositions esthétiques de Kant avec un concept radical – marxien plutôt qu’arendtien – de la politique. C’est pourquoi, dans un troisième temps, on s’attachera à quelques textes de J. Rancière : la critique qu’il oppose aux lectures de Kant proposées par Bourdieu et par Lyotard démontre en effet qu’une pensée de la politique d’inspiration kantienne bien plus radicale que celle de Arendt reste possible. Plus globalement, on montrera ici que l’histoire de la philosophie moderne (par exemple kantienne) ne peut être à elle-même sa propre fin : elle doit toujours être infléchie en direction des enjeux actuels qui sont ceux de la philosophie politique, et ceux de la politique tout court. Sauf à estimer que la tâche philosophique doit désormais s’identifier à celle du gardien de musée, ou du gardien du temple. [less ▲]
