a r t i c l e i n f o In mountain forest ecosystems where elevation gradients are prominent, temperature gradient-based phenological variability can be high. However, there are few studies that assess the capability of remote sensing observations to monitor ecosystem phenology along elevation gradients, despite their relevance under climate change. We(More)
The infratemporal fossa and its contents (particularly the pterygoid muscles) is a region difficult to explore, in spite of its importance in odontostomatological pathology. In order to reduce the indications that justify examination by computed tomography and magnetic resonance imaging, for reasons of economy of health, the authors describe by application(More)
The influence of various modes of carrying a load of 16 kg (15.69 DaN) on the static positioning of the pelvic girdle and the thoracic and lumbar segments of the spine was examined in seven male subjects. The displacement of cutaneous markers attached to easily palpable skeletal landmarks was recorded using 4 CCD cameras; the data acquired were analysed(More)
We examine how Frege's contrast between identity judgments of the forms " a=a " vs. " a=b " would fare in the special case where 'a' and 'b' are complex mental representations, and 'a' stands for an introspected 'I'-thought. We first argue that the Fregean treatment of I-thoughts entails that they are what we call " one-shot thoughts " : they can only be(More)
The motion of thoracic and lumbar spine segments has been analysed by mean of the skin landmarks method on 14 volunteers (7 males, 7 females). Results demonstrate that: There is no significant difference between male and female. There is either facilitation, or limitation of the motion of the characteristic landmarks of the spinal segments during trunk(More)

The analysis of the displacement of the pelvic girdle, during movements of the trunk in the anatomical orthogonal plans, was carried out by the technique of the cutaneous markers on two series of 7 male subjects and 7 female. The photographs made it possible to objectify angular displacements of reliable singular points and to observe that the abduction of(More)
The overall movement of the trunk is made up of two components, namely the movements of the pelvic girdle and the vertebrae. In the frontal plane, the amplitude of the pelvic movements appears to be relatively limited compared to the vertebral column whereas the pelvis makes the major contribution to the total rotational movement in the axial plane.
