Differential impact of the FMR1 gene on visual processing in fragile X syndrome.
Fragile X syndrome (FXS) is the most common form of heritable mental retardation, affecting approximately 1 in 4000 males. The syndrome arises from expansion of a trinucleotide repeat in theExpand

Assessment of strategic self-regulation in traumatic brain injury: its relationship to injury severity and psychosocial outcome.
Standard neuropsychological tests administered in a constrained and artificial laboratory environment are often insensitive to the real-life deficits faced by patients with traumatic brain injuryExpand

Recognition of faces and complex objects in younger and older adults
We examined whether (1) age-associated impairments in face recognition are specific to faces or also apply to within-category recognition of other objects and (2) age-related face recognitionExpand

Molecular identification and expression of heat shock cognate 70 (hsc70) and heat shock protein 70 (hsp70) genes in the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas
Abstract The 70-kDa heat shock protein (Hsp) family is composed of both environmentally inducible (Hsp) and constitutively expressed (Hsc) family members. We sequenced 2 genes encoding an Hsp70 andExpand

Configural face encoding and spatial frequency information
Configural relations and a critical band of spatial frequencies (SFs) in the middle range are particularly important for face recognition. We report the results of four experiments in which theExpand

Seasonal variations of a battery of biomarkers and physiological indices for the mussel Mytilus galloprovincialis transplanted into the northwest Mediterranean Sea.
Seasonal variations of six mussel (Mytilus galloprovincialis) biomarkers at two sites in the Mediterranean Sea were compared with physiological indices (condition, growth and gonad maturation),Expand

Response of the Pacific oyster Crassostrea gigas to hydrocarbon contamination under experimental conditions.
Hydrocarbon contamination perturbs the metabolism of the marine bivalve Crassostrea gigas. To understand the response of this organism to hydrocarbon exposure, a suppression subtractive hybridisationExpand

Organization and nucleotide sequence of the European flat oyster Ostrea edulis heat shock cognate 70 (hsc70) and heat shock protein 70 (hsp70) genes.
The heat shock protein 70 family is composed of both environmentally inducible (Hsp) and constitutively expressed (Hsc) members. We sequenced two genes encoding Hsp70 and Hsc70 in the European flatExpand

Increasing genomic information in bivalves through new EST collections in four species: development of new genetic markers for environmental studies and genome evolution.
The generation of EST information is an essential step in the genomic characterisation of species. In the context of the European Network Marine Genomics, a common goal was to significantly increaseExpand

Genetically based resistance to summer mortality in the Pacific oyster (Crassostrea gigas) and its relationship with physiological, immunological characteristics and infection processes
Summer mortality of Pacific oysters is known in several countries. However no specific pathogen has been systematically associated with this phenomenon. A complex combination of environmental andExpand
