Auto-referential materials (own name) have been described as particularly prone to capture attention. Some recent studies by Harris and Pashler (2004 Psychological Science 15 171 - 178) and Gronau et al (2003 Journal of Experimental Psychology: General 132 512 - 529) have questioned this view and showed that these own-name effects are temporary and appear only in specific conditions: when enough resources are available or when the own name is a task-irrelevant stimulus presented in the focus of attention. In the present study, a stimulus that is unique to each individual was used: the self-face. In experiment 1, the self-face produced a temporary distraction when presented at fixation during a digit-parity task. However, this distraction was not different from that triggered by another highly familiar face. In experiment 2, familiar faces failed to produce interference when presented outside the focus of attention. Experiment 3, using a less demanding task, indicated that when few resources are required, the self-face may interfere even when presented peripherally. These results confirm recent findings showing that auto-referential materials are special only in specific conditions. [less ▲]

The interpretation of the data regarding cognitive outcome in children who have suffered from mild traumatic brain injury (MTBI) remains currently controversial. The aim of the present study is to explore attentional and executive functioning in 6–12-year-old children who experienced a MTBI. A total of 15 children with MTBI and 15 matched noninjured children participated in the study. Attentional tasks using the Test for Attentional Performance battery were administered one year after the injury. In comparison to the noninjury children, MTBI children performed less accurately on selective attentional and updating tasks. These preliminary findings support the view that MTBI can have an impact on specific attentional functioning in children one year postinjury. [less ▲]

BACKGROUND: Attentional dysfunction in children after corrective cardiac surgery in infancy has rarely been evaluated and is the topic of the present work. METHODS: Forty unselected children, 20 with tetralogy of Fallot and hypoxemia and 20 with ventricular septal defect and cardiac insufficiency, operated on at a mean age 0.7 (SD 0.3) years with deep hypothermic circulatory arrest and low flow cardiopulmonary bypass, were evaluated at mean age 7.4 (SD 1.6) years by the computerized form of the Attention Network Test providing performance measures of three networks of attention: alerting, orienting, and executive control. Parental ratings of attentional dysfunction were derived from the Child Behavior Checklist. Results were compared with healthy controls, between patient groups, and correlated with perioperative risk factors and current neurodevelopmental status. RESULTS: Executive control was reduced in the tetralogy of Fallot group, alerting and orienting were found normal and not different between patient groups. Durations of aortic cross clamping inversely correlated with orienting; durations of cardiopulmonary bypass correlated with mean reaction time and inversely correlated with executive control. Motor function and acquired abilities correlated with executive control and orienting. Parent-reported problems on the Child Behavior Checklist inversely correlated with executive control and mean accuracy. CONCLUSIONS: Children with preoperative hypoxemia in infancy due to cyanotic cardiac defects are at increased risk for attentional dysfunction in the field of executive control, compared with normal children and with those who have acyanotic heart defects. Besides unfavorable perioperative influences, preoperative hypoxemia is considered responsible for additional damage to the highly oxygen sensitive regions of the prefrontal cortex and striate body assumed to be associated with the executive control network of attention.

A wild-type strain of channel catfish virus was compared at the genomic level with the attenuated strain V60. In addition to several minor differences, restriction mapping revealed one major deletion (approximately 1200 bp) in ORF50 of the V60 strain. Cloning and sequencing of part of this ORF confirmed the presence of a 1164-bp deletion. It should result in a protein of 282 amino acids instead of 670. The predicted truncated protein lacks most of a threonine-rich, highly repetitive region in its central part. Since the protein encoded by ORF50 possesses a hydrophobic N-terminal leader sequence and no membrane anchor sequence, we suggest that it could be a secreted glycoprotein. This protein might be N-glycosylated (35 potential sites) and, given the repetitive arrangement of its residues (mainly threonines), also heavily O-glycosylated like the mucin-type glycoproteins. The deletion observed in ORF50 of the V60 strain implies the loss of 24 potential N-glycosylation sites and should considerably reduce the extent of O-glycosylation. [less ▲]

Chronic arterial hypotension has been poorly studied. Its mechanisms are not well understood; its treatment (if needed) is disappointing, without any demonstrated improvement of symptoms or prognosis. Thus, a complete medical examination is needed to exclude any organic cause. If none is found, it is important to reassure the patient and to convince him not to use expensive drugs potentially generative of side effects. [less ▲]

Le terme motivation fait partie du langage habituel des psychologues, des enseignants, des sportifs,... Nous pourrions continuer cette liste sans parvenir à lui donner un caractère exhaustif. Parfois utilisé de manière abusive, ce concept présente néanmoins des aspects théoriques et pratiques fondamentaux. A la notion de motivation, on associe très fréquemment celle d'attitude.

At the moment, the place of experimental surgery within the clinical surgical cores is questioned. However, its role in the progresses of surgical practice and training of surgeons is undisputable. It is through research that surgeons can keep some critical mind, essential in their daily activities. However, too often actually, the surgeons abandon research. Two essential reasons explain the phenomenon: on the one hand, the weight of the clinical tasks and on the other hand the complexity of research founded on more and more specialized basic notions. In fact, the part of a surgical investigator must be to form a link between basic research and clinical activities. As such, work in collaboration with motivated basic investigators is cardinal. Also, the success of research depends upon the will of the departments to maintain a research activity, but it meets often with the difficulty in obtaining sufficient research credits. Finally, research can play an essential part in the education of the trainees and partly fill some gaps in their clinical training. [less ▲]
