We adapted in French the Frenchay Dysarthria Assessment (FDA) developed by P. Enderby in 1983. This tool quantitatively evaluates the organs involved in speech and provides a measurement of intelligibility. Productions of normal subjects were analyzed. Reproductibility of data (correlation and interobserver concordance) was high in 18 dysarthric patients. A(More)
Fire regimes have changed during the Holocene due to changes in climate, vegetation, and in human practices. Here, we hypothesise that changes in fire regime may have affected the global CO2 concentration in the atmosphere through the Holocene. Our data are based on quantitative reconstructions of biomass burning deduced from stratified charcoal records(More)
By selecting specific decay reactions in high-energy collisions (60 keV/amu) of hydrogen cluster ions with a helium target (utilizing event-by-event data of a recently developed multicoincidence experiment) and by deriving corresponding temperatures for these microcanonical cluster ensembles (analyzing respective fragment distributions), we are able to(More)
We present quantitative reconstructions of regional vegetation cover in north-western Europe, western Europe north of the Alps, and eastern Europe for five time windows in the Holocene [around 6k, 3k, 0.5k, 0.2k, and 0.05k calendar years before present (bp)] at a 1° × 1° spatial scale with the objective of producing vegetation descriptions suitable for(More)
We present experimental results for proton ionization of water molecules based on a novel event by event analysis of the different ions produced (and lost). We are able to obtain mass analyzed product ion signals (e.g., H2O+, OH+, O+, O++, H+) in coincidence with the projectile analyzed after the collision, i.e., either being H+, neutral H after single(More)
High-energy collisions ( 60 keV/amu) of hydrogen cluster ions with a helium target have been completely analyzed on an event-by-event basis. By selecting specific decay reactions we can start after the energizing collision with a microcanonical cluster ion ensemble of fixed excitation energy and we derive corresponding temperatures of the decaying cluster(More)
Following a previous review about the different components of memory (Eustache et al., Revue Neurologique, 1998), this paper is devoted to the evaluation of both autobiographical and semantic memory. An original method to analyse autobiographical memory is proposed. The different tasks used for the analysis of semantic memory are detailed with a particular(More)
The most abundant decay channels have been studied quantitatively for high-energy (60 keV/amu) cluster ions H (3) (+)(H (2))(m = 1-14) colliding with He atoms employing a recently developed multicoincidence technique for the simultaneous detection of the correlated fragments on an event-by-event basis. This allows us to identify decay reactions and their(More)
We report the naming performances of a 25 year-old woman with a left internal and inferior temporal lesion caused by herpes encephalitis who showed a preferential impairment for naming man-made objects. Evidence for category-specific effect was provided by a stepwise logistic regression using 171 pictures characterized by several parameters (words(More)
The lake Bjäresjösjön, Southern Scania, Southern Sweden, was studied in the context of the project ‘The cultural landscape of the past 6000 years in Southern Sweden’. Pollen, plant macrofossils, diatoms, physical and chemical analysis, magnetic measurements and radiometric methods (210Pb, 14C) have been used to study palaeoecological changes, i.e. climate,(More)
