Recently, authors have emphasized the differences between brand images held by different individuals depending on the perception, the experience with the brand and the types of contacts with the company. This finding is in sharp contrast with the conventional view recommending consistency and coherence in all the company’s actions. This research tradition has been called the consumer-focused view. Therefore, the author emphasized several academic motivations to develop research on brand image measurement on a consumer level. First, considering that different images are socially constructed constellations of meanings, established between marketers and consumers, with implications for both parties as well as for the marketplace and society at large, this phenomenon raises new issues in managing brand image: Should the company define segments with different brand perceptions and adapt its strategy to these perceptions, how can the city council satisfy the different stakeholders of a city brand, to what extent does the launch of a junior brand influence the perception of a senior brand with a similar name, to what extent do opinion leaders and antibrand activists influence the perception of a corporate brand. Second, there is a need for a process-oriented methodology, namely one that recognizes changes in brand images due to all the influences in the marketplace, to measure the brand perception and capture any change in the brand perception that is due to external factors, namely factors that are not decided by the company. Third, considering the link between brand image and brand equity, the method should focus on the contribution of attributes to brand equity, capturing the strengths, uniqueness and the favourability of these associations. And fourth, regarding the varied natures of brand attributes (functional, emotional, people, ethics, etc) depending on the type of brand (product brand, service brand, city brand and corporate brand), this technique to assess brand image perception should be applicable to all kinds of brands. As a result, the overall objective of this research is to provide profound insight into a measurement method of brand image perception and changes in brand image perception, capturing the strengths, uniqueness and favorability of brand attributes in different contexts, as a consequence of the new consumer focused and process-oriented views.

Introduction The development of motor skills competencies is critical during childhood should be considered as the central learning outcome in physical education. Assessing motor competencies of the children make sense for teachers, trainers and researchers. The MOBAK-1 testing battery has been recently developed with the aim of assessing a wide panel of motor skills in relationship with locomotion and object-control abilities (1). This battery is complete and easy to use but present a scoring system that is only based on the success or the failure of the task. The aim of the study was to collect descriptive data from Belgian children with MOBAK-1, and to do a critical analysis of the scoring system through the analysis of the failure reasons in the tests. Methods The MOBAK-1 testing battery (1) was addressed to 166 primary school pupils (7.2±0.6 YO) coming from the French speaking part of Belgium. For each test, children received a score from 0 to 2, according to the number of success and fails in the task. Additionally, the evaluator took notes of the failure reasons when it occurs. Results Results from our subjects were in accordance with a previous study (1) for all tests except rolling and jumping tasks. The analysis of the failure reasons revealed that some criteria were too severe as some children failed while they were almost able to do the test correctly. This appeared especially in the rolling and jumping tests where the score did not really reflect the level of the children. Conclusion MOBACK-1 testing battery was successful to assess children motor skills for 6 out of 8 tests. Critical analysis of children failures in the tests revealed that some criteria seemed to be severe. Scoring system should be improved in order to inform about the children level in each test.

Consciousness is a prismatic and ambiguous concept that still eludes any universal definition. Severe acquired brain injuries resulting in a disorder of consciousness (DOC) provide a model from which insights into consciousness can be drawn. A number of recent studies highlight the difficulty in making a diagnosis in patients with DOC based only on behavioral assessments. Here we aim to provide an overview of how neuroimaging techniques can help assess patients with DOC. Such techniques are expected to facilitate a more accurate understanding of brain function in states of unconsciousness and to improve the evaluation of the patient’s cognitive abilities by providing both diagnostic and prognostic indicators.

As an economical and feasible intervention, reflection demands learners using critical thinking to examine presented information, questioning its validity, and drawing conclusions based on the resulting ideas during a learning process. The aim of this study is to gain insight into the effects of practicing short, frequent and structured reflective breaks that are interspersed with the reading process of a learning material. It tries to reveal whether physiological signals can be used as appropriate indicators to reveal the actual changes of cognitive states while introducing different reflective breaks during learning. The recorded physiological signals include skin temperature, blood volume pulse, pulse volume amplitude, and pulse rate. The results show that while these embedded “reflection rituals” did not affect learners’ performance they had significantly impact on time on task, perceived learning and those learners' physiological (cognitive) states. Physiological data returned significant differences between the reading and reflection activity. Measurements of temperature and pulse rate are lower when covering the course equipped with additional reflection affordances while blood volume pulse and pulse volume amplitude are higher. In addition, applying statistics analysis to the physiological data exhumes significant differences between different types of reflection activities for those measurements including skin temperature, pulse volume amplitude and pulse.
