It has been suggested that reflux laryngitis (RL) is involved in apneas-bradycardias of the newborn. The aim of the present study was to develop a unique RL model in newborn lambs to test the hypothesis that RL enhances the cardiorespiratory components of the laryngeal chemoreflexes (LCR) in the neonatal period. Gastric juice surrogate (2 ml of normal(More)
The effects of an acute and high dose of palm alcohol (900 mg/kg bodyweight) on brain functioning were investigated in 10 healthy, non-alcoholic men. Each was given randomly-interspaced, paired, frequent standard (80%) and rare target auditory stimuli and asked to detect and signal the target tone by pressing a push button. These brain function tests were(More)
Seven right handed male students were submitted to standard and target paired auditory stimuli to determine the relationship between contingent negative variation (CNV) and the slow negative waves following non paired stimuli. The warning stimuli informed subjects whether or not the impending unconditional stimulus implied a motor response. Subjects were(More)
Contingent negative variation (CNV) and reaction time were examined in four groups of eight young adult men: controls, witnesses, students in physical and athletic education, and sprinters. Subjects, except the control group, were asked to detect and respond quickly by pressing a button in the following experimental conditions: 1) simple auditory stimuli,(More)
Trimebutine [2-dimethylamino-2-phenylbutyl-3,4,5-trimethoxybenzoate hydrogen maleate (TMB)] has been demonstrated to be active for relieving abdominal pain in humans. To better understand its mechanism of action, we have tested TMB; nor-TMB, its main metabolite in humans; and their respective stereoisomers for their affinity toward sodium channels labeled(More)
Thirty-two male subjects divided into 4 groups (of 8--controls, witnesses, students in physical and athletic education (PAE) and sprinters--were submitted to 1) simple auditory stimuli, 2) paired auditory stimuli, and 3) simple and paired auditory stimuli. The subjects, except the control group, have been assigned the task of quickly responding by pressing(More)
Short title: Reflux laryngitis and laryngeal chemoreflexes ABSTRACT It has been suggested that reflux laryngitis (RL) is involved in apneas-bradycardias of the newborn.

In the context of genomic selection in animal breeding, an important objective consists in looking for explicative markers for a phenotype under study. In order to deal with a high number of markers, we propose to use combinatorial optimization to perform variable selection. Results show that our approach outperforms some classical and widely used methods(More)
