This experiment examined whether newborn stepping, a primitive form of bipedal locomotion, could be modulated by optical flow. Forty-eight 3-day-old infants were exposed to optical flows that were projected onto a horizontal surface above which the infants were suspended. Significantly more air steps were elicited by exposure to a terrestrial optical flow(More)
To shed further light on the perceptual regulation of newborn stepping, we compared neonatal air stepping in response to optic flows simulating forward or backward displacement with stepping forward on a surface. Twenty-two 3-day-olds performed four 60 s trials in which they stepped forward on a table (Tactile) or in the air in response to a pattern that(More)
FOREWORD This report describes the methodology that has been implemented in the software PC-CREAM 08 to assess the radiological impact of routine discharges of radioactive material into the environment. PC-CREAM 08 has been developed by the Health Protection Agency (HPA), with permission from the European Commission (EC), and is an updated version of the EC(More)
This article presents a methodology based on two complementary approaches, thus allowing a selection of maximal concentration in foodstuffs for determining appropriate countermeasures. The first approach is based on a minimal and maximal per capita intervention level and takes into account the annual intake of each product. The second one is based on a(More)
The purpose of this paper is to show how to assess the consequences of gaseous and liquid releases. The following points are studied successively: --atmospheric dispersion and depletion process, in order to evaluate wet and dry deposition; --marine diffusion in order to evaluate the contamination of aquatic products; --the different models permitting to(More)
