Lateral mobility of Ardenne rivers has been studied at different scales using three complementary methods. We firstly compared the layout of channels on topographic maps (since the 18th century) and aerial pictures. Given that these documents have different scales and projection systems, they were transformed into a common referencing system. This method allowed us to study the lateral shifting of channels, however, as the mobility of Ardenne rivers is relatively low, the errors of geometric rectifications are often more important than lateral displacements. Therefore, to visualize these deformations, georeferenced documents were overlaid with a regular grid of points. We represented the imprecision vector based on x and y residual components for each point. These vectors show the direction of the deformation and its amplitude. Large quantities of iron slag are present in the sediments of Ardenne rivers. These waste products come from hundreds of ironworks built close to rivers since the 14th century. Analyses of slag concentrations in alluvial deposits allowed us to delimitate the sectors of floodplains eroded by rivers during the last centuries. In these sectors, slag elements are present at the contact with the gravel sheet. Finally, we analysed the topography of floodplains from a DEM-LIDAR. This digital elevation model has been established by the Walloon Region for the cartography of flood risk in floodplains. It presents a Z mean error of only 15 cm and a X-Y resolution of 1 m. In order to reveal paleochannels and topographic alluvial units, we subtracted a surface, corresponding to the longitudinal water surface slope, extracted from the DEM. By using this method, we are able to obtain the relative height of any point of the floodplain with regard to the water surface, projected perpendicularly to the layout, on this point. This procedure reveals paleochannels even if they are almost infilled and allows us to delimitate, for several kilometres, alluvial units, which have been formed at different periods. [less ▲]

Pollution of water resources (surface waters and ground waters) by pesticide uses is one of the key point of the European policy with the imptementation of the Water Frame Work Directive (2000/60/EC) and the thematic Strategy on the Sustainable use of pesticides. According to this Legislation, the Member States must initiale measures to limit environmental and toxicologieal effects caused by pesticide uses. The Agricultural Research Centre of Wallonia (CRA-W) emphasized the need of a toot for spatial risk analysis and develops it within the framework of PESTEAUX project. The originality of the approach proposed by the CRA-W is to generate maps to identify the risk of pollution at locale scale (agricultural parcel). The risk will be assessed according to the study of different factors, grouped under 3 data's tayers: polluting pressure, vulnerability of the physical environment (soil) and meteorological data. This approach is directly based on the risk's definition which takes into account the polluting pressure, linked te the human activities, and the vulnerabitity of the soil, defined by factors of physical environment which characterize the water flow in the parcel. Moreover, meteorological data influence the intensity and likelihoad flow of water, and indirectly pesticide by leaching or runoff. The PESTEAUX's approach to study the pollution is based on the model "source-vector-target". The source is the polluting pressure, in other words, the pesticides which could reach the targets. The main vector is the water which vehicles the pesticide on and trough the soil until the target which are the surface waters or ground waters. ln this paper we introduce the factors contributing to the polluting pressure. These factors are linking to the human activities and more precisely, to the pesticide uses. The factors considered have an influence on pesticide's transport by water (in its solid state or in dissolved state by leaching, run-off, or erosion) but also on a set of process controlling pesticide behavior in the environment such as degradation, sorption, ....

Piano Key Weirs (PKW) are a new type of weir, showing very good flood release capacities as well as strong economic and structural benefits. However, lacks of understanding persist about the flow conditions on such structures. With the goal to fill some of these lacks, a combined experimental and numerical study has been undertaken at the Laboratory of Structures Hydraulics of the University of Liege. This paper presents the goals and the scientific strategy of this research. The first results of experiments being carried out on a large physical model of PKW are also depicted. These experiments lead to characterization of the flow behavior for low heads and enable to highlight the influence of the crest thickness and the outlet slope on the release capacity. [less ▲]

The operational management of rivers during low flows periods needs a best knowledge of the hydrological processes involved. Therefore a study aiming at the regionalization of low flows discharges in the Walloon Region has been started. Its first objective is to characterise the lowest flows throught existing monitoring network. Homogeneous regions will be defined on the basis of the results obtained. For each one, regression equations will be build in order to permit the computation of low flow discharge at any point of an ungauged river. [less ▲]

Carbohydrate-based surfactants (CBS) constitute an attractive class of amphiphilic molecules owing to their structural diversity generating a wide range of properties which could be developed in food and non-food applications. Based on many functional groups of the carbohydrate part, it is possible to design multiple amphiphilic structures of CBS varying in the hydrophilic head groups (mono-, oligo-, or polysaccharides), hydrophobic tail (mono-, di-, tricatenar) but also in the linker/spacer between them. The main structures of CBS include mono- and bicatenar glycolipids, bolaforms, and gemini. Moreover, CBS compounds can be produced from the most abundant renewable materials allowing large product concept possibilities. Among general properties of surfactants, interfacial properties molecules occupy a fundamental key role for colloidal system formulations since they control most of technological aptitudes required for forming and stabilizing food, cosmetic, agrochemical, detergent, and pharmaceutical products. High-throughput methodology applied to screening of CBS interfacial properties appears crucial for achieving optimum formulations of colloidal systems like foams and emulsions for which small amounts of single or mix surface-active agents are often needed and numerous physical and chemical parameters are involved. This general approach may be applied to any amphiphilic molecules produced from other renewable resources of surface-active compounds like micro-organisms and by direct extraction from vegetable materials. One of the key factors for the development of this methodology is the use of automated instrument systems in laboratory scale which are still lacking in this field compared to those existing in the analytical chemistry and biochemistry areas.

Since many years, the University of Liège is involved in micro-electronics and microelectromechanical systems modelling, design and integration. Recently, the University of Liege had received the opportunity to build a brand new infrastructure (clean rooms – ISO 7) with specific equipments for packaging and MEMS characterisation. This new facility (clean rooms and equipments) enables the University to be very well positioned in the nano/micro-electronics modelling, analysis and packaging world and is now able to answer specific research and related industrial needs. In this paper we consider the design of a vibration sensor in its significantly vibrating surroundings and investigate in its dynamical behaviour. Environmental vibrations affect the sensor part of the MEMS device and influence the choice of the “best” packaging methods for the application. Within the framework of packaging, we consider a simple test application ensuring best interconnection technology. Dynamical investigations include a preliminary analysis of the packaging and a separate finite-element analysis of the MEMS device (inside the package), testing the device under the condition of a harsh environment (high vibration spectral level). Computations are proposed in combination with experimental observations. [less ▲]

Examination of the horse during daily work is essential to follow-up his athletic préparation, however a good level of expérience is required to judge if he is ready to perform in compétition. Beyond thé subjective estimation of his behaviour and progress, objective parameters can be measured to evaluate his athletic capacity, level of fitness and health. Simple exercise tests can be integrated to thé horse's regular work schedule and parameters such as speed, heart rate and cardio-respiratory recovery may be readily monitored and compared during thé course of thé season. More sophisticated tests allow investigating exercise physiology of thé horse during exertion and thé way he tolerates and adapts to physical strain. It also allows early détection of subclinical diseases liable to impair performance. Like in human sports medicine, treadmill tests represent a safe investigation tool that is particularly well adapted to examining horses during exercise and helps diagnose one or several causes of poor performance, as many ancillary examinations may be implemented.

Clinical affections of the locomotor and respiratory systems are the two main causes of poor performance in sport horses. Nevertheless, each subclinical affection of any system implicated in the oxygen system (respiratory, cardiovascular, blood, muscular and metabolic) may also become a limiting factor concerning the athletic capacities of the horse. A systematic medical examination of the horse, combining ail the clinical and laboratory exams, is thus necessary in order to establish a precise and comprehensive diagnosis regarding the different affections. The objectives of this communication are therefore to present the different methods currently available for the practitioner as well as the techniques recently developed for horses. The complementarity of the different clinical and laboratory exams, as well as the ideal moment for performing each test are clarified in order to accurately determine the different causes of poor performance as well as their functional repercussions [less ▲]

Iodine (I) deficiency is commonly reported in cattle around the world and is often associated with clinical or sub-clinical diseases. As most of clinical signs are not pathognomonic, diagnosis has to be confirmed by biochemical analyses such as plasmatic inorganic iodine (PII) or urinary I. Different oral mineral forms of I are available in Europe for cattle. The aim of the study was to compare the kinetic of I in blood and urine in non-lactating cows, following oral administration of different forms of I. Five groups of 6 non-lactating cows (aged 6 ± 2 years, weight 604 ± 89 kg), receiving the same ration (11 kg dry matter) and housed in the same conditions (tied-stall and straw) underwent a double-blinded trial during 2 months. Excepting in Group A (Control), all cows received a daily oral supplementation of I equal to 5 ppm, in the form of Ca(IO3)2 (Group B), KI (Group C), organic form of I 1 (Group D) and organic form of I 2 (Group E). Formulas of the organic forms of I are not public and coverable by patent. Supplementation was stopped at T45. Blood and urine samples were taken at T0, T15, T30 and T60. Thyroxine (T4) was measured at T0, T30 and T60 while PII and urinary I were measured at the 4 times of the trial. Student-t test and multiple comparisons of means (mix crossed model) were used to compare I and T4 concentrations between groups and times. All characteristics about the cows and I levels in blood or urine were not significantly different at T0 (p>0.1). There was no significant difference (p>0.1) between groups B, C, D, E at the different times of the trial. PII and urinary I in Group A were significantly lower than in other groups (p<0.01) at T15 and T30. Highest concentrations of I (PII up to 242 ± 30 µg/L and urinary I up to 2326 ± 439 µg/L) were reached at T15 for groups B, D and E. At T60, PII (19 ± 4 µg/L) and urinary I (110 ± 29 µg/L) of all groups reached the basal level. A good correlation was found between PII and urinary I (r² = 0.77). No significant differences were found about T4 (67 ± 10 nmol/L) in all groups and times (p>0.1). PII and urinary I are good markers to assess I nutritional status. No difference was found between either inorganic or organic forms of I, nor between them. Concerning the mineral forms of I, Ca(IO3)2 might be preferably used because of its higher stability in the mineral complexes. [less ▲]

Devant la multiplication des programmes de formation et de sensibilisation à l’entrepreneuriat, la question reste posée quant à l’efficacité des actions et des méthodes pédagogiques utilisées. La présente étude propose de à cette question en s’intéressant à l’impact d’un événement de sensibilisation de courte durée (une soirée) qui utilise prioritairement une seule méthode pédagogique consistant en l’exposition à des modèles d’entrepreneurs. L’évaluation d’impact se base sur des indicateurs liés aux changements d’attitudes à l’égard de l’entrepreneuriat et par conséquent à des changements au niveau de l’intention d’entreprendre. Se basant sur la théorie de l’apprentissage entrepreneurial qui suppose que les individus apprennent différemment d’une même expérience en fonction de leur niveau de connaissance initial (Minniti et Bygrave, 2001 ; Cope, 2005), cette étude distingue l’analyse d’impact selon deux groupes de participants en fonction de leur niveau de perceptions (attitudes et sentiment de capacité) et d’intention entrepreneuriale initial. Les résultats de cette étude permettent ainsi d’identifier les variables de perception pouvant influencer l’impact de l’exposition à des modèles d’entrepreneurs et de conclure par rapport à l’influence du stock de connaissances préalable sur le processus d’apprentissage entrepreneurial. La méthode préconisée propose une analyse comparative entre un échantillon de 288 participants à l’événement de sensibilisation et un groupe de contrôle composé de 46 répondants non participants. La présente étude repose ainsi sur le protocole pré-post test avec groupe de contrôle. En terme d’implications pratiques, cette étude permet aux responsables de formations à l’entrepreneuriat d’appliquer des méthodes pédagogiques appropriées au public auquel ils s’adressent (en terme de niveau de perceptions et d’intention entrepreneuriale) ou de mieux cibler le public approprié aux actions pédagogiques utilisées.

In this paper, daily traffic counts are explained and forecasted by different modeling philosophies, namely the ARIMAX and SARIMA(X) modeling approaches. Special emphasis is put on the investigation of the seasonality in the daily traffic data and on the identification and comparison of holiday effects at different site locations. To get prior insight in the cyclic patterns present in the daily traffic counts, spectral analysis provides the required framework to highlight periodicities in the data. Data originating from single inductive loop detectors, collected in 2003, 2004 and 2005, are used for the analyses. Four traffic count locations are investigated in this study, an upstream and downstream traffic count location on a highway that is excessively used by commuters and an upstream and downstream traffic count location on a highway that is typified by leisure traffic. The different modeling techniques pointed out that weekly cycles appear to determine the variation in daily traffic counts. The comparison between seasonal effects and holiday effects at different site locations revealed that both the ARIMAX and SARIMAX modeling approach are valid frameworks for the identification and quantification of possible influencing effects. The technique yielded the insight that holiday effects play a noticeable role on highways that are excessively used by commuters, while holiday effects have a more ambiguous effect on highways typified for their leisure traffic. Modeling of daily traffic counts on secondary roads, and simultaneous modeling of both the underlying reasons of travel and revealed traffic patterns, certainly are challenges for further research.

For a few years, the transgressive and deviant sexual behaviour of adolescents has raised many questions in Belgium in order to understand why these young people are led to crime, how they function psychologically and what legal and therapeutic measures to take. All authors (WORLING, 2001, BARBAREE and MARSHALL, 2006, MALAMUTH and Al, 2003...) agree on the fact that these adolescentrs, who have this sexual offence in common in the course of their adolescence, form, nevertheless, a very heterogeneous group. Research (VAN WIJK and Al. 2005, 2007; JACOBS 1997, FORD and Al 1995, LEBLANC M. 1999,..) has raised the question whether these adolescents who commit sexual aggressions are delinquents like the others. In the line of this research, we undertook a comparative study of the psychosocial and criminological functioning of 67 delinquent adolescentrs including 47 sexual delinquents. On the basis of the assumption that the functioning of the adolescents who attack younger children differs from that of the adolescents who attack other adolescents, we carried out a comparative analysis of three sub-groups: adolescent sexual delinquents-children (N=26)/ adolescent sexual delinquents -peers (N=21)/ adolescent nonsexual delinquents (N=20). Based on data from the clinical interviews, the study of files, a scale of self-acknowledged delinquency, and scales of clinical syndromes of the personality inventory of MILLON (MILLON Adolescent Clinical Inventory - MACI), we analyzed the delinquent and sexual behaviour of adolescents according to the nature of their offence, and highlighted the clinical problems and syndromes of the adolescents of the three sub-groups. The results suggest a mode of sexual behaviour which is specific to the adolescent sexual delinquents, but a synchronous delinquent behaviour of comparable nature for the adolescent nonsexual delinquents and the adolescent sexual delinquents-peers, who present mixed delinquent trajectories (sexual and nonsexual delinquency) that are more diversified and charged than the adolescent sexual delinquents-children.

We present an original optimum strategy for retrieval of precipitable water from routine ground-based midinfrared FTS measurements performed at a number globally distributed stations within the NDACC network. The strategy utilizes FTIR retrievals which are set in a way to match standard radio sonde operations. Thereby, an unprecedented accuracy and precision for measurements of precipitable water can be demonstrated: the correlation between Zugspitze FTIR water vapor columns from a 3 months measurement campaign with total columns derived from coincident radio sondes shows a regression coefficient of R = 0.988, a bias of 0.05 mm, a standard deviation of 0.28 mm, an intercept of 0.01 mm, and a slope of 1.01. This appears to be even better than what can be achieved with state-of-the-art micro wave techniques, see e.g., Morland et al. (2006, Fig. 9 therein). Our approach is based upon a careful selection of spectral micro windows, comprising a set of both weak and strong water vapor absorption lines between 839.4 – 840.6 cm-1, 849.0 – 850.2 cm-1, and 852.0 – 853.1 cm-1, which is not contaminated by interfering absorptions of any other trace gases. From existing spectroscopic line lists, a careful selection of the best available parameter set was performed, leading to nearly perfect spectral fits without significant forward model parameter errors. To set up the FTIR water vapor profile inversion, a set of FTIR measurements and coincident radio sondes has been utilized. To eliminate/minimize mismatch in time and space, the Tobin best estimate of the state of the atmosphere principle has been applied to the radio sondes. This concept uses pairs of radio sondes launched with a 1-hour separation, and derives the gradient from the two radio sonde measurements, in order to construct a virtual PTU profile for a certain time and location. Coincident FTIR measurements of water vapor columns (two hour mean values) have then been matched to the water columns obtained by integrating the best-estimate radio sonde profiles. This match was achieved via investigating the quality of the correlation plots between the columns derived from the radio sondes and the FTIR retrievals, and iteratively tuning the regularization strength of the FTIR retrieval. The FTIR regularization matrix is based on a Tikhonov operator which allows for empirical tuning of the regularization strength via one parameter. The figures of merit for the iterative tuning have been the slope, the intercept, and the regression coefficient of the correlation. By this way an optimum retrieval setting could be found, guaranteeing a response of the FTIR retrievals to true water vapor changes, which is matched to the radio sonde operation. As first examples for utilizing this approach to derive long-term trends of precipitable water from NDACC type long-term FTIR measurements, we present trends from two time series. I.e., one retrieved from continuous FTIR measurements at the NDACC Primary Station Zugspitze, Germany (47.42 °N, 10.98 °E, 2964 m a.s.l.), which covers the time span 1995-2009, and one from the International Scientific Station of the Jungfraujoch (ISSJ, 46.5°N, 8.0°E, 3580m a.s.l., Swiss Alps), covering the time span 1984 – 2009. A detailed trend analysis of both series via the bootstrap method will be presented. In ongoing work we apply this optimum retrieval approach to historical long-time measurement series of further selected FTIR stations of the NDACC network. Thereby we will obtain unprecedented new climate data via long term trends of precipitable water at a set of globally distributed locations. [less ▲]

The aim of this experiment was to study the relation between the specific immune response and infection of slow-growing broiler chickens reared on straw litter contaminated by Campylobacter jejuni. The 11-weeks experiment was carried out in a 45 m2 broiler house with 500 chickens from 1 day of age, which had access to an open-air range. Litter contamination was performed before the setting up of the chicks by rearing campylobacter-positive cocks. These birds were also used to contaminate the open-air range during one week before the exit of the chickens, at 5 weeks of age. Blood samples were taken weekly on 20 chickens for anti-campylobacter IgG quantitative measurements on serum. Chickens were then euthanized and cecal contents and bile were collected for Campylobacter enumeration and anti-campylobacter IgA quantification, respectively. A high serum anti-campylobacter IgG titer of 110.13 was measured in one-day-old chicks. The IgG antibodies level significantly decreased to 5.60 at 28 days of age which coincided with the onset of Campylobacter infection in the flock. A significant reduction of the cecal colonization from 11 weeks of age was correlated with the increase in biliary IgA titers. These results suggest that the 2-3 week’s delay generally observed in poultry production before flock infection by Campylobacter may be, at least partly, explained by the protective effect of maternal antibodies. The increase of secretory immune response as bird age may help to limit Campylobacter population in the chicken gut. [less ▲]

Bottom friction modeling is an important step in river flows computation with 1D or 2D solvers. It is usually performed using empirical laws established for uniform flow conditions or a modern approach based on turbulence analysis. Following the definition of the flow validity field of the main friction laws proposed in the iterature, an original continuous formulation has been developed. It is suited to model river flows with a high variability of properties (water depth, discharge, roughness…). The efficiency of this new formulation, theoretically established and numerically adjusted, is demonstrated through various practical applications. [less ▲]

Plant population differentiation may play a role in decreasing the ability to predict whether, where, and when an introduced species will invade. However, few studies have addressed the level of genetic change an alien species may undergo during range expansion, e.g. in response to climatic variation with altitude. In the present study, we tested the hypothesis that invasive populations of Senecio inaequidens (Asteraceae) differentiated during migration from two independent introduction sites into divergent altitudinal and climatic zones. We carried out two years of common garden experiments with eight populations from a Belgian altitudinal transect and ten populations from similar French transect. Climatic analysis revealed that the Belgian transect followed a temperature and precipitation gradient. A temperature and summer drought gradient characterized the French study site. We evaluated differentiation and clinal variation in the following characters: days to germination, days to flowering, height at maturity, final plant height and aboveground biomass. Results showed that S. inaequidens populations differentiated in growth traits during invasion. First year of experiment, regressing population growth trait means against source population altitude indicated the presence of clinal variation along both transects. Second year, similar results were found along the French transect, i.e. a reduction in height at maturity, plant height and aboveground biomass with increasing altitude. Including seed mass as a covariate did not change the outcome of the analysis. The possible evolutionary causes for the differentiation observed are discussed. [less ▲]

Applying optimization techniques in the field of multibody systems (MBS) has become more and more attractive considering the increasing development of computer resources. One of the main issues in the optimization of MBS concerns closed-loop systems which involve non-linear assembly constraints that must be solved before any analysis of the system. The addressed question is: how to optimize such closed-loop topologies when the objective evaluation relies on the assembly of the system? The authors have previously proposed to artificially penalize the objective function when those assembly constraints cannot be exactly fulfilled. However, the method suffers from some limitations especially due to the difficulty to get a differentiable objective function. Therefore, the key idea of this paper is to improve the penalty approach. Practically, instead of solving the assembly constraints, their norm is minimized and the residue is taken as a penalty term instead of an artificial value. Hence, the penalized objective function becomes differentiable throughout the design space, which enables the use of efficient gradient-based optimization methods such as the sequential quadratic programming (SQP) method. To illustrate the reliability and generality of the method, two applications are presented. They are related to the isotropy of parallel manipulators. The first optimization problem concerns a 3-dof Delta robot with 5 design parameters and the second one deals with a more complex 6-dof model of the Hunt platform involving 10 design variables.

We present the analysis of FUV (1150-1750 Å) limb dayglow spectra of Titan’s atmosphere obtained on 13 December 2004 at 5 Å resolution by the Ultraviolet Imaging Spectrograph (UVIS) onboard Cassini. The fit to the data show that Titan’s airglow consists of four principal emissions: 1) the N2 Lyman-Birge-Hopfield (LBH) band system, which peaks in intensity at 1150 +/- 50 km, 2) N I multiplets peaking at 1050km +/- 50 km, 3) sunlight reflected by N2 between 0 and 300 km and 4) H Ly alpha which grows in intensity with increasing altitude. Comparisons with limb spectra obtained by the Voyager 1 Ultraviolet spectrometer (V1/UVS) show that the vertically integrated brightness are larger for V1/UVS than for UVIS by a factor of 3, consistent with the XUV solar flux ratio at Titan at the time of these observations. The N2 LBH and N I profiles obtained from the regression to the Titan data are compared to models obtained by the Atmospheric Ultraviolet Radiance Integrated Code (AURIC), adapted from Earth’s atmosphere to Titan’s.

The paper offers a vectorial approach to the J2-perturbed relative orbital motion. The model uses mean orbital elements in order to derive closed form expressions for the relative position and relative velocity with respect to the LVLH frame attached on a main satellite. The advantage of the present approach is that only the motion of one satellite must be known, together with the initial conditions with respect to LVLH of the other satellites. As in the previous works of the authors, a tensorial instrument is used in order to transfer the motion from inertial to non-inertial reference frames and back. In this way, a concise instrument for the study of the satellites formations under the influence of the oblateness factor J2 is offered. Copyright © 2009 by Daniel Condurache and Vladimir Martinusi.

Introduction The first part of the study devoted to guided tissue regenerative membranes was focused on a better understanding of the physicochemical and mechanical properties of commercial materials. The second objective of our study was to develop an in vitro device able to measure the long-term barrier effect of resorbable membranes. After the development of this new device, experiments were realized to characterize the long-term behaviour of commercially membranes with human gingival fibroblasts (HGF). Materials and methods The use of human gingival fibroblastic cells was chosen to get closer to biological conditions. Some gingival explants were removed in young and non-smoking healthy patients. From these explants, fibroblastic cells were isolated and cultivated. These cells will be able to be used between the third and the sixth passage. Resorbable membranes were chosen because they don’t require a second surgical operation. There are made of polyesters or collagen. A system based on inserts was developed in order to follow the degradation of membranes and the migration of cells across the material. The membrane was cut into 8 mm diameter punches and set in the bottom of the system. Once the whole was put together, it is laced into a 12 wells plate culture. First, the plates were put in an incubator at 37°C, during times ranging from 24 hours to several months. The barrier effect was then measured to reflect the gradual increase of permeability of each membrane. For this purpose, HGF were seeded on the different samples. The top of the bottle and the bottom of the well were then filled with culture medium. Non degradable synthetic Bioflex membranes were chosen as control samples which don't let pass cells (porosity : 0,4 µm). After 48 hours of incubation in the presence of cells, pictures of cells on membranes and in the bottom of wells were taken with an optic microscope. Viability tests (MTS) were then realized on membranes to evaluate cells proliferation and in the bottom of wells to measure barrier effect. Finally, the morphology of cells on selected membranes was characterized by Scanning Electron Microscopy. Conclusion Proliferation results correspond to data published by several authors. Furthermore, the barrier effect times found in the present study are similar to barrier effect times demonstrated in in vivo studies and announced by manufacturers. In conclusion, the finalized system is adapted to the analysis of long-term barrier effect of commercial GTR membranes. This system will be tested with synthetic bioresorbable membranes made of copolymers. [less ▲]

The A. studies the phenomenon of the civic elections of a patron saint in the Spanish Low Countries, after the process definition by the Congregation of Rites in 1630. She takes an interest mainly in the ceremonial dimensions of these consecrations that give rise to solemnities noticeable by their dramaturgy. In a war context, these elections answer to the anxiety by an overactive energy resulted in a luxuriant and opulent scenery. Life’s highlights of cities in crisis, they prove an exacerbate expressivity and a strong inventiveness. Their study must excite the curiosity of the historian who questions the mechanisms of the solennisation of the Tridentine cult, the part given to the emotion in the expression of the Sacred and the processes invented to create a strong affective adhesion to the message that these ceremonies suggest. Are particularly studied the cases of Lille (1634), Aire-sur-la-Lys (1636), Armentières (1664), Luxembourg (1666 and 1678), Stadtkyll (1679) and Baasen (1682). [less ▲]

This study was aimed at investigating whether the recognition of familiar faces is more likely to be associated with an experience of Remembering than the recognition of familiar names. Using the Remember/Know paradigm the proportions of episodic memories recalled following the recognition of famous faces and names (Conditions) were assessed. Presented faces and names were previously judged by an independent group of participants as eliciting an equivalent level of familiarity. Nevertheless significant differences between the two conditions appeared in hit and false alarm rates. However, present results showed no significant difference in the recollection of personal memories (Remember responses conditionalized on the hits), following familiar faces compared with familiar names recognition. This finding contrasts with recent accounts assuming that faces are more prone to yield episodic memories than other cues to person identity. These results and their implications for current Interactive Activation and Competition person recognition models are discussed. [less ▲]
