Ces dernières années, plusieurs études ont démontré l’existence de « souvenirs » auxquels on ne croit plus (nonbelieved memories, NBMs). Typiquement, un NBM est une représentation vivace et précise d’un évènement que le participant a cru avoir vécu pendant un certain temps mais auquel il a un jour cessé de croire, et ce pour différentes raisons possibles (p.ex., feedback social, plausibilité de l’évènement). Dans la littérature, on constate qu’il ne s’agit pas d’un phénomène rare puisqu’il concernerait environ 20 pourcents des personnes interrogées. Aussi, quel que soit l’âge des participants, les travaux antérieurs montrent que ce type de souvenirs concernait surtout des évènements vécus durant l’enfance. Afin d’évaluer si les NMBs sont réellement spécifiques à l’enfance, nous présenterons les résultats d’une récente étude au cours de laquelle nous avons examiné l’influence de l’exemple donné dans la consigne sur l’incidence des NBMs et l’âge auquel les évènements associés ont été vécus.

Recollection refers to recall of details about past events, and familiarity is a feeling of oldness. In this study, we tested how recollection and familiarity are affected in patients with memory complaints compared to normal aging. We recruited 23 healthy older participants, 9 patients with subjective memory impairment (SCI) and 23 patients with mild cognitive impairment (MCI). Participants performed one 2-alternative forced-choice and one Yes-No recognition memory task including pictures and words, followed by a short neuropsychological evaluation. Fifteen healthy participants and 23 patients (9 SCI and 14 MCI) took part in a neuropsychological follow-up after a mean delay of 21 months. At inclusion, MCI patients had poorer performance in recognition than the other groups, which did not differ. MCI patients had worse performance regarding familiarity and recollection indexes compared to healthy controls and SCI, who exhibit similar performance. There was no interaction between groups and format or material. During the follow-up evaluation, five MCI returned to a normal level of efficiency and were considered as SCI. Based on the French adaptation of the free and cued selective reminding test (RLRI-16), we calculated cognitive decline curves in our patients. We observed that recollection and familiarity indexes were explained by the decline curves calculated on the number of freely recalled items. So, recollection and familiarity were used less efficiently in MCI than SCI although both groups complained about their memory. [less ▲]

If familiarity is better preserved than recollection in aging and in the early stage of Alzheimer's disease (Koen & Yonelinas, 2014), the experimental conditions promoting its use should be beneficial to these populations. One condition influencing the relative contribution of recollection and familiarity during recognition is the format of the test. The aim of this study was to investigate the impact of test format on recollection and familiarity in normal aging and in MCI in two tasks where the level of performance is equalized. Seventy young participants, 70 younger-old (55-69 years old), 69 older-old (70-85 years old), and 13 MCIs were presented with forced-choice and yes/no visual recognition memory tasks with the Remember/Know/ Guess paradigm. Young participants had better recognition memory performance than younger-old, who performed better than older-old and MCIs. Recollection and familiarity declined progressively in healthy aging. In MCI, recollection was more affected than familiarity, but patients demonstrated a more liberal use of familiarity. Finally, test format did not influence strongly the results. Young people used recollection more often in the forced-choice task compared to the yes/no task. [less ▲]

L’alexithymie (i.e., incapacité à exprimer ses émotions par des mots) serait-elle sensible aux traitements psychothérapeutiques dispensés en Hôpital de Jour (HPJ) ? Quelles en seraient les variables prédictives ? Notre recherche a porté sur 73 participants sélectionnés en HPJ et présentant des troubles de l’humeur. En comparant les scores d’entrée et de sortie, des réductions significatives ont été observées sur tous les aspects d’alexithymie. De plus, certaines variables impactant significativement sur l’alexithymie ont été mises en avant : variables démographiques (i.e., genre ; âge ; durée de séjour) ; médication ; variables du MMPI-2 ; support social perçu (PSS). Il apparait que le PSS ainsi que cinq variables mesurées par le MMPI-2 (e.g., les pratiques antisociales ou les attitudes négatives face au traitement) tendaient à réduire ou augmenter les niveaux d’alexithymie. Dès lors, ces résultats tendent à favoriser une conception plus flexible des traits de personnalité, à mettre en évidence le rôle fondamental de la régulation exogène des émotions et à fournir aux thérapeutes les variables à prendre en considération pour optimiser la prise en charge de l’alexithymie.

Les relations amoureuses des jeunes adultes peuvent être empreintes de diverses formes de violences (psychologique, physique ou sexuelle). La recherche considère généralement que la violence psychologique est moins grave que les formes physique ou sexuelle. Or, elle ne peut pas être négligée. Notre objectif de faire un état des lieux des violences psychologiques que ces jeunes peuvent agir ou subir dans leurs relations amoureuses, et d’explorer dans quelle mesure ils ont des attitudes qui tolèrent (ou pas) ces violences. Méthodologie : Un questionnaire papier a été administré à un large échantillon composé d’étudiants (N>1000, 18-25 ans) en Belgique francophone. Ce questionnaire reprend deux outils : l’un traitant de la violence dans les relations amoureuses (« Conflict in Adolescent Dating Relationships Inventory », Wolfe et al., 2001) et l’autre traitant des attitudes relatives à ces violences («Attitudes Toward Dating Violence Scale », Price & Byers, 1999). Résultats : Après un descriptif des prévalences de violences psychologiques agies et subies, ainsi que des attitudes des participants, nous traiterons des liens entre les violences psychologiques et les attitudes afférentes, en termes de perpétration et de victimisation. Tout au long de nos analyses, les différences de genre seront considérées. Discussion : Ces résultats nous montrent comment les violences psychologiques et leurs attitudes afférentes sont liés, tant en termes de perpétration que de victimisation. S’inscrivant dans la continuité des recherches américaines, nos résultats encouragent l’élaboration de programmes de prévention et de sensibilisation auprès des jeunes adultes par un travail sur les attitudes.

It is now well-known that there exist functions that are continuous but nowhere differentiable. Still, it appears that some of them are less “irregular” than others. The pointwise regularity of a function can be characterized by its Hölder exponent at each point. For the sake of practicability, it is more appropriate to determine the “size” of the sets of points sharing a same exponent, through their Hausdorff measure. By doing so, one gets the multifractal spectrum of a function, which characterizes in particular its monofractal or multifractal nature. The first part of this work is based on the so-called “wavelet leaders method” (WLM), recently developed in the context of multifractal analysis, and aims at its application to concrete situations in geosciences. First, we present the WLM and we insist particularly on the major differences between theory and practice in its use and in the interpretation of the results. Then, we show that the WLM turns out to be an efficient tool for the analysis of Mars topography from a unidimensional and bidimensional point of view; the first approach allowing to recover information consistent with previous works, the second being new and highlighting some areas of interest on Mars. Then, we study the regularity of temperature signals related to various climate stations spread across Europe. In a first phase, we show that the WLM allows to detect a strong correlation with pressure anomalies. Then we show that the Hölder exponents obtained are directly linked to the underlying climate and we establish criteria that compare them with their climate characteristics as defined by the Köppen-Geiger classification. On the other hand, the continuous version of the wavelet transform (CWT), developed in the context of time-frequency analysis, is also studied in this work. The objective here is the determination of dominant periods and the extraction of the associated oscillating components that constitute a given signal. The CWT allows, unlike the Fourier transform, to obtain a representation in time and in frequency of the considered signal, which thus opens new research perspectives. Moreover, with a Morlet-like wavelet, a simple reconstruction formula can be used to extract components. Therefore, the second part of the manuscript presents the CWT and focuses mainly on the border effects inherent to this technique. We illustrate the advantages of the zero-padding and introduce an iterative method allowing to alleviate significantly reconstruction errors at the borders of the signals. Then, we study in detail the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) signal related to temperature anomalies in the Pacific Ocean and responsible for extreme climate events called El Niño (EN) and La Niña (LN). Through the CWT, we distinguish its main periods and we extract its dominant components, which reflect well-known geophysical mechanisms. A meticulous study of these components allows us to elaborate a forecasting algorithm for EN and LN events with lead times larger than one year, which is a much better performance than current models. After, we generalize the method used to extract components by developing a procedure that detects ridges in the CWT. The algorithm, called WIME (Wavelet-Induced Mode Extraction), is illustrated on several highly non-stationary examples. Its ability to recover target components from a given signal is tested and compared with the Empirical Mode Decomposition. It appears that WIME has a better adaptability in various situations. Finally, we show that WIME can be used in real-life cases such as an electrocardiogram and the ENSO signal. [less ▲]
