Chehade, Hassib ; Girardin, Eric ; Iglesias, Katia ; Ramseyer, Pascal ; Frey, Peter ; Bardy, Daniel ; Mosig, Dolores ; Cachat, Francois

In: Pediatric Nephrology, 2013, vol. 28, no. 1, p. 105-114

Background Estimated glomerular filtration rate (eGFR) is an important diagnostic instrument in clinical practice. The National Kidney Foundation-Kidney Disease Quality Initiative (NKF–KDOQI) guidelines do not recommend using formulas developed for adults to estimate GFR in children; however, studies confirming these recommendations are scarce. The aim of our study was to evaluate the...

Lavenex, Pierre ; Lavenex, Pamela Banta ; Cachat, François ; Gehri, Mario ; Juvet, Typhaine

In: Neurological Sciences, 2015, p. 1–6

Seizures associated with fever are a common pediatric problem, affecting about 2–7 % of children between 3 months and 5 years of age.

Here, we tested the...

Socio-cognitive dynamics in dyadic interaction: How do you work together to solve Kohs cubes?

Tartas, Valérie ; Perret-Clermont, Anne-Nelly

In: European Journal of Developmental Psychology, 2008, vol. 5, no. 5, p. 561-584

This study presents a detailed analysis of collaborative interaction modes employed by 9- to 10-year-old children in a spatial problem solving a task called the Kohs cubes. All the children were videotaped during non-interactive pre-test and post-test sessions (stages 1 and 4) and two types of interactive sessions: (1) novice children training with adults (stage 2); and (2) competent instruction...
