Although several cognitive processes, including speech processing, have been studied during sleep, working memory (WM) has never been explored up to now. Our study assessed the capacity of WM by testing speech perception when the level of background noise and the sentential semantic length (SSL) (amount of semantic information required to perceive the(More)
BACKGROUND The median survival of patients with diffuse intrinsic pontine glioma (DIPG) remains less than 1 year. The BSG 98 pre-irradiation chemotherapy protocol showed a significant increase in overall survival. In contrast to current treatment strategies, patients did not have to undergo surgical stereotactic biopsy, which can sometimes lead to(More)
KEY POINTS Sleep spindle are usually considered to play a major role in inhibiting sensory inputs. Using nociceptive stimuli in humans, we tested the effect of spindles on behavioural, autonomic and cortical responses in two experiments using surface and intracerebral electroencephalographic recordings. We found that sleep spindles do not prevent arousal(More)
Pineal tumor management in pediatric patients must be based on close co-operation between oncologists, surgeons, radiation oncologists, neurologists, ophthalmologists, and endocrinologists. Radiation therapy (RT) remains critical in most situations and should be assessed as soon as the diagnosis is made, in order to optimize the radiation technique. This(More)
