Recent research has shown that many prospective thoughts are organised in networks of related events, but the relational dimensions that contribute to the formation of such networks are not fully understood. Here, we investigated the organisational role of emotion by using cues of different valence for eliciting event networks. We found that manipulating the emotional valence of cues influenced the characteristics of events within networks, and that members of a network were more similar to each other on affective components than they were to members of other networks. Furthermore, a substantial proportion of events within networks were part of thematic clusters and cluster membership significantly modulated the impact of represented events on current well-being, in part through an intensification of the emotion felt when thinking about these events. These findings demonstrate that emotion contributes to the organisation of future thoughts in networks that can affect people’s well-being. [less ▲]

Voici trois siècles, il se racontait dans la ville prussienne de Königsberg qu’un promeneur ne pouvait pas traverser successivement les sept ponts reliant les différentes parties de la cité sans emprunter deux fois le même pont. Leonhard Euler apporta en 1736 une démonstration élégante de cette affirmation. Il produisit ainsi l’une des premières applications des mathématiques à la construction d’itinéraires optimisés. Aujourd’hui, la modélisation mathématique est devenue un outil indispensable pour les décideurs dans le monde du transport et, plus généralement, pour la gestion et la planification des activités logistiques. Qu’il s’agisse de calculer l’itinéraire le plus rapide de Liège à Marbella, d’optimiser les tournées de livraison d’une chaîne de grande distribution, de charger des navires ou des avions en assurant leur stabilité, de réduire les stocks excédentaires d’une entreprise pharmaceutique, de fixer le prix de billets de TGV en fonction des places disponibles, dans chaque cas, les mathématiques, alliées à l’informatique, permettent de formuler de façon précise le problème rencontré et d’y apporter des réponses pertinentes. Cet exposé présentera quelques applications typiques des mathématiques dans le domaine de la logistique et fournira un aperçu des méthodes qui y sont mises en œuvre. [less ▲]

The purpose of the present study was to explore the ability of neglect patients to detect and exploit the predictive value of a cue to respond more quickly and accurately to targets on their contralesional side in a Posner spatial cueing task. The majority of the cues (i.e. 80%) were invalid, indicating that the target would appear on the opposite side, although patients were not informed of this bias. Our results demonstrate that some neglect patients were able to extract the cue’s predictability and use it to orient faster toward the left. This cueing effect was present even in patients who were subsequently unable to describe the predictive character of the cues, and thus was not modulated by reportable awareness of the cue-target relation.

En vue d’assurer la cohérence de la politique de l’emploi sur le territoire bruxellois, le volet transversal du « Pacte de Croissance Urbaine Durable », appelé aussi « New Deal » bruxellois, inventorie une série d’actions à mettre en œuvre de manière coordonnée. Pour cela, il définit un cadre permettant de développer des partenariats entre acteurs aussi différents que des administrations, des partenaires sociaux ou encore des cabinets ministériels, dépendant d’institutions tantôt régionales, tantôt communautaires, francophones ou néerlandophones. Il repense ainsi l’organisation de la coordination entre ces acteurs, sans pour autant toucher à la répartition institutionnelle des compétences sur le territoire bruxellois. L’évaluation présentée dans ce Cahier de l’IBSA livre un bilan de l’utilité de ces dispositifs de coordination, selon le point de vue des acteurs impliqués. Elle repose sur une comparaison de huit études de cas qui portent sur une période d’observation de trois ans, allant d’avril 2011 à mars 2014. L’évaluation met en lumière la nouvelle méthode de travail du New Deal qui permet, via des collaborations croisées, de dépasser certaines fragmentations politiques et institutionnelles autour de la question de l’emploi sur le territoire bruxellois.

Plant protection strategies are strongly focused today on the development of alternative methods in order to complete or replace conventional chemical inputs. Elicitors of biological origin are increasingly considered as a promising tool as biocontrol agents. They offer the possibility, through the induction of plant natural defences, to preventively protect plants against a large spectra of diseases. Multiple elicitors have already been identified since their first discovery in the late 70s, but few research has been focused on crop pathogens although such diseases can strongly impact both yield and grain quality. We describe hereby a method of elicitor screening to protect wheat against Zymoseptoria tritici. Focus is made on the importance of a good disease infection protocol in order to achieve screening tests. [less ▲]

2D-DIGE analysis coupled with mass spectrometry is a global, without a priori, comparative proteomic approach particularly suited to identify and quantify enzymes isoforms and structural proteins, thus making it an efficient tool for the characterization of the changes in cell phenotypes that occur in physiological and pathological conditions. In this data article in support of the research article entitled “Metabolic reprogramming in transformed mouse cortical astrocytes: a proteomic study” [1] we illustrate the changes in protein profile that occur during the metabolic reprogramming undergone by cultured mouse astrocytes in a model of in-vitro cancerous transformation [2].

Recent studies have identified a putative cell of origin for cervical intraepithelial neoplasia (CIN) and cervical cancer at the squamo-columnar junction (SCJ) and suggest that these cells may not regenerate following excision (LEEP). This study addressed the impact of SCJ excision on the temporal dynamics, histologic and viral (HPV) characteristics of recurrent CIN. One hundred thirty one consecutive patients treated by excision and attending follow-up visits were enrolled. We compared recurrent and initial CIN with attention to excision margins, timing of recurrence, CIN grade, HPV types, p16 immunophenotype, and SCJ immunophenotype. During the follow-up period (up to four years), sixteen (12.2%) recurrences were identified. Four (25%) were identified at the first follow-up visit, closely resembled the initial CIN 2/3 in grade and HPV type, and were typically SCJ marker positive [SCJ(+)], suggesting non-excised (residual) disease. Twelve (75%) manifested after the first postoperative visit and all were in the ectocervix or in mature metaplastic epithelium. All of the 12 delayed recurrences were classified as CIN 1 and were SCJ (-). Nine of 11 SCJ (-) recurrences (82%) followed regressed spontaneously. Taken together, these results show that new lesions developing from any HPV infection are delayed and occur within the ectocervix or metaplastic epithelium. This dramatically lower risk of CIN 2/3 following successful SCJ excision suggests that removal of the SCJ could be a critical variable in reducing the risk of subsequent CIN 2/3 and cervical cancer.
