We explain the emergence and robustness of intense jets in highly turbulent planetary atmospheres, like on Jupiter, by a general approach of statistical mechanics of potential vorticity patches. The idea is that potential vorticity mixing leads to the formation of a steady organized coarse grained flow, corresponding to the statistical equilibrium state.(More)
Non-linear quantifiers of brain electrical dynamics (entropy maps computed from the degradation of temporal forecasting of EEG signals) were studied in relation to drug treatment of Alzheimer's disease. A placebo condition was compared to three drug doses (50, 100 and 200 mg). A significant general effect of the drug was found when compared to placebo and(More)
The neural correlates of the response to performance feedback have been the object of numerous neuroimaging studies. However, the precise timing and functional meaning of the resulting activations are poorly understood. We studied the electroencephalographic response time locked to positive and negative performance feedback in a hypothesis testing paradigm.(More)
We analyzed the time-varying modulation of gamma (>30 Hz) electroencephalographic (EEG) activity exerted by positive and negative feedback in a hypothesis testing paradigm. Ten college students serially tested hypotheses concerning a hidden rule by judging its presence or absence in triplets of digits and revised them on the basis of an exogenous(More)
In the framework of particle-based Vlasov systems, this paper reviews and analyses different methods recently proposed in the literature to identify neighbours in six dimensional space (6D) and estimate the corresponding phase-space density. Specifically , it compares Smooth Particle Hydrodynamics (SPH) methods based on tree partitioning to 6D Delaunay(More)
Until now, Pthirus pubis infestation in ancient human populations had only been recorded in the Old World. We found crab lice on South American mummified bodies from the Atacama Desert region. Crab louse eggs were found attached to the pubic hairs of a 2,000-yr-old Chilean mummy. Well-preserved adults were found in sediment and clothing from a Peruvian(More)
We used the electroencephalogram (EEG) to investigate whether positive and negative performance feedbacks differentially modulate late time-locked oscillatory brain activity in hypothesis testing. Ten college students serially tested hypotheses concerning a hidden rule by judging its presence or absence in triplets of digits, and revised them on the basis(More)
Between 1979 and 1990 we have seen 8 patients (7 females) with rheumatoid arthritis (RA) who developed a neuro-muscular involvement while on D-penicillamine (D.P.). Five of them had a drug-induced myasthenia. D.P. withdrawal led to a complete recovery in 1.5 to 5 months. Another patient presented with a myopathy which led to the diagnosis of Grave's(More)

By means of a dynamical ansatz, we study the breathing dynamics in systems of trapped interacting particles in a unified context, including a wide range of power law interactions and interaction strengths, at linear and non linear levels. We present detailed numerical tests of the general theory, and, motivated by Magneto-Optical Traps modeling, we extend(More)
