The ability of 13 Parkinsonian patients and 11 age-matched control subjects to process and use two components of the information given prior to a voluntary movement was studied using reaction time (RT) tasks. This advance information about the direction of a pointing movement was given using a double stimulation paradigm with an auditory warning signal (WS)(More)
AIM The aim of this study was to investigate how advance information both explicit and implicit provided prior to movement may affect the spatial orientation and the internal attention control processes in normal adult subjects. The originality of this work compared to the test of Posner, lies essentially in the methodology used to study the attentional(More)
Colon cancer and precancerous colon lesions are major health problems. The most frequent precancerous cancer lesions are polyps characterized by abnormal tissue growth in the human bowel. There are also anomalies such as inflammation and bleeding area. Colon capsule endoscopy (CCE) is a recent promising technology which enables to obtain videos of the(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate Parkinsonians' ability to process and use the explicit and implicit advance information available about a motor task they are preparing to perform. For this purpose, the performances of 13 Parkinsonians were compared with those of 11 control subjects in a double stimulus reaction time task. The explicit(More)
In the present study, it was consequently proposed to investigate how the spatial orientation of attention made by the explicit and implicit components of advance information, affected the reaction time (RT) performances. Subjects performed a simple RT task with an orientation cue and two choice RT situations, the one with a neutral cue and the other with a(More)
Mapping study of EEG spike focus was performed on 122 topographic maps, from 88 records of 72 subjects, classified in: F for "functional" (no epileptic seizure); EGI, EGS and EGC: respectively generalized idiopathic, symptomatic and cryptogenic epilepsies; EPI, EPS and EPC: respectively partial idiopathic, symptomatic and cryptogenic epilepsies--epilepsies(More)
