The Event Related Potential (ERP) of 8 french right handed subjects were recorded with 5 active electrodes located in frontal (Fz), central (Cz), occipital (Oz) and right/left parietal (RH, LH) sites while they were performing a modified version of the test of Stroop. They had either to read the names of basic colors (yellow, green, blue, red) written in(More)
Normal subjects passively viewed an upright or inverted face or objects during recording of event-related potentials. Face inversion augmented N170 amplitude and latency in the temporal region, but only the latency in the parietal region. The same manipulation slowed down the onset of the P220 and caused disappearance of the N300, whereas none of these(More)
The effects of handedness and of familial left-handedness on the asymmetry of the cerebral hemispheres were investigated by means of visual evoked potentials. Square gratings of different spatial frequencies were presented, at 1 Hz in ON-OFF mode to 60 subjects: 30 right-handers and 30 left-handers, 15 with familial handedness and 15 without in each group.(More)
The influence of the spatial frequency of visual stimuli on hemispheric asymmetry has been studied with visual evoked potentials (VEP). Nineteen different sinusoidal gratings (19 SF from 1 to 10 cpd) were presented in an ON-OFF mode to five right-handed subjects. The amplitude of the VEPs and the latency of the first positive component (C1) were analyzed.(More)
We have studied the dynamic changes occurring during the propagation of active volleys through the parallel fiber (PF) tract in a portion of molecular layer of the cerebellar cortex, by means of a realistic computer simulation of the fibers (random distribution of PF origin; correlation between length and conduction velocity throughout depth). Surface(More)
We present here a study on the effects of inhibitory recurrent collaterals of Purkinje cell (PC) axons on the activity of the immature rat cerebellar cortex. Simultaneous extracellular recordings of pairs of PCs were performed in rat pups aged 5-8 days postnatal. Bicuculline was applied to the surface of the cortex in order to functionally antagonize PC(More)
Previous experiments have shown that categorization of people into two distinct fictive groups has an impact on cognitive processes. The main objective of the present study was to examine whether this mere categorization improves information processing speed and alters early and late onset ERPs during a social judgment task. In a group membership situation,(More)
A model of the immature rat cerebellar cortex is used to simulate the effect of the inhibitory recurrent collateral axons of the Purkinje cells on the spike trains in the network. Inhibition induces an important overall change in the statistical characteristics of individual spike trains. It is also instrumental in producing a strong cooperativity between(More)
In this communication, we describe the design of an online multi-chromatographic approach to the routine NMR analyses of low-level components ( approximately 0.1%) in complex mixtures. The technique, termed LC(2)-SPE-NMR, optimally combines multi-dimensional liquid chromatography with SPE technology for isolating, enriching and delivering trace analytes to(More)
The Child-Pugh score is largely validated and easy to use. Despite two subjective variables, this score is widely used to predict the survival of patients suffering from cirrhosis. The MELD (Model for End Stage Liver Disease) is a more objective prognostic score, requiring however a calculation software. It is currently used in prioritizing allocation of(More)
