Event-related potentials (ERPs) triggered by three different faces (unfamiliar, famous, and the subject's own) were analyzed during passive viewing. A familiarity effect was defined as a significant difference between the two familiar faces as opposed to the unfamiliar face. A degree of familiarity effect was defined as a significant difference between all(More)
The Event Related Potential (ERP) of 8 french right handed subjects were recorded with 5 active electrodes located in frontal (Fz), central (Cz), occipital (Oz) and right/left parietal (RH, LH) sites while they were performing a modified version of the test of Stroop. They had either to read the names of basic colors (yellow, green, blue, red) written in(More)
In order to investigate the neuroanatomical chronometry of word processing, two experiments using: Event-Related Potentials (ERPs) have been performed. The first one was designed to test the effects of orthographic, phonologic, and lexical properties of linguistic items on the pre-semantic components of ERPs during a passive reading task and massive(More)
Normal subjects passively viewed an upright or inverted face or objects during recording of event-related potentials. Face inversion augmented N170 amplitude and latency in the temporal region, but only the latency in the parietal region. The same manipulation slowed down the onset of the P220 and caused disappearance of the N300, whereas none of these(More)
In order to enhance the effect of spatial frequency on the hemispheric asymmetry of visual evoked potentials (VEP), the response amplitudes to ON-OFF modulated gratings were compared with the responses to pattern reversal stimulation. Sinusoidal gratings of different spatial frequencies were presented to six righthanders. VEPs were recorded from temporal(More)
Recent suggestions on the involvement of the spatial frequency of visual stimuli in the hemispheric lateralization were investigated by recording steady-state evoked potentials in two groups of subjects: five right-handers and five left-handers. Sinusoidal gratings at spatial frequency of 0.5, 1, 3, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12 or 16 cpd were phase reversed at 4 Hz or(More)
The cutaneous leishmaniasis is a frequent affection in Tunisia. In the Gafsa region it is a endemoepidemic infection. Our prospective study was carried out on 225 cases of cutaneous leishmaniasis of the face collected over two years in the outpatients' department of dermatology at Gafsa hospital. The aim of our study was to know more about the evolutive(More)
Steady-state evoked potentials were recorded in eight adult subjects from occipital and temporal leads of both hemispheres to investigate the effect of temporal frequency on the hemispheric specialization for basic visual information. A 3 cycles deg-1 grating was phase-reversed at different temporal frequencies (from 4 to 18 Hz), and the frequency spectrum(More)
PURPOSE OF THE STUDY Neck fractures of the talus are rare. Necrosis is the complication most often observed. Mal union or non union are rarely reported: 11 cases of such complications have been treated and are presented with results of surgical treatment. MATERIAL Seven non unions and 4 mal unions after separation fracture of the talus, presenting with(More)
