HAL is a multidisciplinary open access archive for the deposit and dissemination of scientific research documents, whether they are published or not. The documents may come from teaching and research institutions in France or abroad, or from public or private research centers.

The symptoms of poisoning by the pyrethroid and cyclodiene insecticides are characterized by hyperexcitation and convulsions followed by paralysis. The main target site of the pyrethroids has been identified to be the sodium channels which are kept open for unusually long periods of time, causing a prolonged sodium current to flow which, in turn, leads to(More)
Voltage-activated sodium channels and GABAA receptor-chloride channel complex are among the most important target sites of various environmental neurotoxicants. Pyrethroids keep the sodium channels open for prolonged periods of time leading to hyperexcitation of the entire nervous system. In rat cerebellar Purkinje neurons and dorsal root ganglion neurons,(More)
It is desirable in many disciplines to include supplementary information to add value to research publications, particularly in digital form. The concept of interactive publications, in which the reader can browse and navigate through in a nonlinear manner, is one such medium that is explored in this paper. We describe the application of the Rich(More)
We introduce Teegi, a Tangible ElectroEncephaloGraphy (EEG) Interface that enables novice users to get to know more about something as complex as brain signals, in an easy, engaging and informative way. To this end, we have designed a new system based on a unique combination of spatial augmented reality, tangible interaction and real-time neurotechnologies.(More)
The conflict between vergence (eye movement) and accommodation (crystalline lens deformation) occurs in every stereoscopic display. It could cause important stress outside the "zone of comfort", when stereoscopic effect is too strong. This conflict has already been studied using questionnaires, during viewing sessions of several minutes. The present pilot(More)
We propose a toolkit for creating Tangible Out-of-Body Experiences: exposing the inner states of users using physiological signals such as heart rate or brain activity. Tobe can take the form of a tangible avatar displaying live physiological readings to reflect on ourselves and others. Such a toolkit could be used by researchers and designers to create a(More)
The effects of the microiontophoretic application of dynorphin A-(1-13) (DYN 13) and the benzomorphans ethylketocyclazocine (EKC), bremazocine and MRZ 2549, (kappa) opioid agonists, and of morphine and morphiceptin, (mu) opioid agonists, were compared on spontaneous or glutamate-evoked discharge of globus pallidus (GP) neurons in rat. Our results(More)
This study was conducted in order to compare the effects of microiontophoretically-applied morphine and met-enkephalin (met-ENK) on spontaneous and/or glutamate-evoked activity of single globus pallidus (GP) neurons in locally anesthetized, paralyzed rats. The predominant effect of both morphine and met-ENK was a depression of pallidal neuronal activity.(More)
