INTRODUCTION Neck pain is common in fighter pilots due to repeated exposure to high +Gz loads, but studies comparing neck function in symptomatic and healthy fighter pilots are lacking. This study compared neck strength and EMG activity during maximal isometric contractions in a sitting position in the sagittal and coronal planes in neck pain (SP),(More)
The mammalian auditory system contains descending neural pathways, some of which project onto the cochlea via the medial olivocochlear (MOC) system. The function of this efferent auditory system is not entirely clear. Behavioral studies in animals with olivocochlear (OC) lesions suggest that the MOC serves to facilitate sound localization in noise. In the(More)
Physical therapy without anesthesia or plaster casts was used to treat 338 cases of clubfoot (CF). Our technique is based on progressive sequential manipulations at birth. We first reduce the varus and later the equinus component of the CF. The gentle stretches used in this technique are complemented by active physiotherapy stimulating the muscles, and then(More)
Three experiments examine the effect of a difference in fundamental frequency (F0) range between two simultaneous voices on the processing of unattended speech. Previous experiments have only found evidence for the processing of nominally unattended speech when it has consisted of isolated words which could have attracted the listener's attention. A(More)
Previous research has identified acoustic properties modulating the perceived urgency of alarms. The authors conducted 3 experiments using a multidimensional approach in which participants made acoustic dissimilarity judgments and urgency dissimilarity judgments for pairs of sequences. Experiment 1 confirmed the validity of acoustic parameters in urgency(More)
BACKGROUND In certain flight configurations, fighter pilots are exposed to high Gz acceleration (G) which may induce inflight loss of consciousness (G-LOC). When acceleration is of high amplitude, and the onset rate very rapid, G-LOC can occur extremely suddenly. HYPOTHESIS Mechanisms other than brain hypoxia could be involved, enhancing its effects. In(More)
PURPOSE Preoperative localization of an insulinoma is recommended to improve the cure rate, but non-invasive procedures can fail to detect the tumour. The objective of the study was to assess the performance of a selective arterial calcium stimulation test in the preoperative localization of insulinomas that were not detected by conventional imaging(More)
Human sound localization abilities rely on binaural and spectral cues. Spectral cues arise from interactions between the sound wave and the listener's body (head-related transfer function, HRTF). Large individual differences were reported in localization abilities, even in young normal-hearing adults. Several studies have attempted to determine whether(More)
Previous studies of alarm design have concluded that the faster a mental representation of the cause of the alarm is activated, the quicker the adapted reaction. In order to select sounds that are quick to identify, an experiment was carried out using a gated stimulus paradigm with 117 everyday sounds. Almost half of the sounds were identified in less than(More)
OBJECTIVE To provide updated data on amniotic fluid embolism (AFE) based on our population over a 10 year period, and to propose steps for improving current practice. STUDY DESIGN Retrospective study carried out in the Department of Gynaecology and Obstetrics at the Strasbourg University Teaching Hospital between 1 January 2000 and 31 December 2010.(More)
