See detailThe Sensitivity of Children with SLI to Phonotactic Probabilities During Lexical Access

The procedural deficit hypothesis (Ullman & Pierpont, 2005) has been proposed to account for the combination of linguistic and nonlinguistic deficits observed in specific language impairment (SLI). According to this proposal, SLI results from a deficit in procedural memory that prevents children from developing sensitivity to probabilistic sequences. We tested the ability of children with SLI to rely on a specific type of probabilities characterizing sequences that occur in a given language: phonotactic probabilities. Twenty French-speaking children with SLI (M = 10;1), 20 typically developing children matched for chronological age (M = 10;0) and 20 typically developing children matched for receptive vocabulary (M = 7;4) performed an auditory lexical decision task. Pseudoword stimuli were built with combinations of either frequently associated phonemes (high phonotactic probability) or infrequently associated phonemes (low phonotactic probability). Phonotactic probabilities had a significant impact on the accuracy and speed of pseudoword rejection in children with SLI, but not in the two control groups. SLI children's greater reliance on phonotactic probabilities relative to typically developing children appears to contradict the PD hypothesis. Phonotactic probabilities may help them to partially overcome their difficulties in accessing the phonological lexicon during spoken word recognition. [less ▲]

A systematic study on the presence of bottlenose dolphins (Tursiops truncatus) in the Río Negro Estuary (RNE), Patagonia Argentina, was carried out between the months March – July from 2008 to 2011. Data on the dolphin’s activity patterns were gathered via an Ad Libitum focal group sampling mode accompanying dorsal fin images taken for identification and re-identification of individuals. A total effort of 188 h resulted in 58 h of positive observation of 124 dolphin groups (sightings per unit effort (SPUE) = 0.66 groups/h). Data analysis showed two main activity states for the observed groups, travelling (65%) and foraging (26%). The remaining 9% of the groups were involved in other activity states. The photo-identification effort, which started opportunistically in 2006, resulted in a catalogue of 21 individual dolphins, with a total mean re-identification rate of 9 days (max = 24 days). When comparing these pictures to the existing catalogue of Bahía San Antonio (approximately 200 km west from the study area) dorsal fins of 20 individuals could be positively matched and most (n = 17) could be subsequently re-identified in both areas, indicating their long distance movements along the North Patagonian coast during the austral autumn months. This season coincides with the lowest amount of feeding activity observed in Bahía San Antonio. This study suggests that bottlenose dolphins enter RNE, mainly during autumn, to forage. It appears that the search for food resources may be the trigger for their movement patterns along the North Patagonian coast during this season, at least for certain individuals. More research is needed to accurately confirm this hypothesis. [less ▲]

L’insomnie est actuellement traitée majoritairement par la pharmacothérapie. Or la thérapie comportementale et cognitive pour l’insomnie présente une meilleure efficacité à long terme que celle-ci. Dans cet article nous décrivons les principes de base de ce traitement psychothérapeutique de courte durée. Il s’agit de combiner des méthodes de restriction de sommeil, de contrôle des stimuli en lien avec le sommeil, d’apprentissage de techniques de relaxation, des conseils sur l’hygiène de sommeil et des techniques de thérapie cognitive appliquées aux cognitions envahissants les moments d’insomnie.

Régulièrement recommandé à des fins préventives ou curatives, le repos vocal favorise la récupération dans différentes circonstances. Bon nombre de phonochirurgiens l’incluent dans les soins postopératoires, avant une éventuelle prise en charge orthophonique. Le repos vocal permet également de résorber une simple fatigue ressentie suite à un usage intensif ou inhabituel de la voix, ou peut faire l’objet d’une indication thérapeutique dans le cadre de lésions consécutives aux phonotraumatismes. Compte tenu du manque de données scientifiques et de la diversité des pratiques sur le sujet, il n’est pas toujours aisé de donner des indications claires aux patients, souvent réticents à l’idée de ne pas pouvoir utiliser leur voix pendant une durée prolongée. Basé sur des recherches récentes et sur des expériences cliniques, ce chapitre permet de mieux comprendre l’intérêt du repos vocal et suggère des lignes de conduites quant à la manière de l’organiser [less ▲]

Background subtraction is usually based on low-level or hand-crafted features such as raw color components, gradients, or local binary patterns. As an improvement, we present a background subtraction algorithm based on spatial features learned with convolutional neural networks (ConvNets). Our algorithm uses a background model reduced to a single background image and a scene-specific training dataset to feed ConvNets that prove able to learn how to subtract the background from an input image patch. Experiments led on 2014 ChangeDetection.net dataset show that our ConvNet based algorithm at least reproduces the performance of state-of-the-art methods, and that it even outperforms them significantly when scene-specific knowledge is considered.
