Les facteurs psychosociaux qui entrent en jeu dans le retour au sport après une reconstruction du ligament croisé antérieur : travail de Bachelor

Mesnil, Adèle ; Perillard, Lucie ; Rossier, Jean-Luc (Dir.)

Mémoire de bachelor : Haute école de santé Genève, 2019.

Introduction : Anterior cruciate ligament rupture is a common injury in sport. Studies have shown that, despite good knee function after reconstruction of the anterior cruciate ligament, some patients do not return to the sport at the same level than before the injury. It has been shown that it can be explained partly by the interference of psychological and social elements. Objective : The...

Medieval Convent Drama : Translating Scripture and Transforming the Liturgy

Dutton, Elisabeth ; Robinson, Olivia ; Cheung-Salisbury, Matthew

In: A Companion to Medieval Translation, 2019, p. 63-74

This article examines a vernacular Nativity play from the convent at Huy, in modern-day Belgium. The play includes liturgical citations that would have been sung in Latin, alongside the Walloon French lines that translate generically -- scriptural narrative into verse drama -- as well as linguistically. Scriptural narrative is also expanded through the addition of apocryphal material and...

The dynamics of continuous cultural traits in social networks

Buechel, Berno ; Hellmann, Tim ; Pichler, Michael M.

In: Journal of economic theory, 2014, vol. 154, p. 274-309

We consider an overlapping generations model where continuous cultural traits are transmitted from an adult generation to the children. A weighted social network describes how children are influenced not only by their parents but also by other role models within the society. Parents can invest into the purposeful socialization of their children by strategically displaying a cultural trait...

Evolution of the "Castanea sativa" - "Dryocosmus kuriphilus" - "Torymus sinensis" - system in southern Switzerland

Gehring, Eric ; Aebi, Alexandre (Dir.) ; Conedera, Marco (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

The arrival of new organisms that may potentially become harmful for people and ecosystems has become a world-wide daily concern to the point that in Switzerland about 800 established alien species exist, of which at least 107 are considered invasive. A possible way to control such pests is by importing and releasing natural enemies from their countries of origin, letting them to act as so-called...

La constitution d'un corpus vidéo-enregistré de réunions professionnelles. Carnet de recherche

Jacquin, Jérôme ; Roh, Sabrina

In: Revue Tranel (Travaux neuchâtelois de linguistique), 2019, vol. 70, p. 89-106

The main goal of the DVPH (Verbal Description and Haptic Perception) survey was to measure the relative frequency of tactile references in the discourse of 30 visually impaired people: ten sighted temporarily blindfolded, ten late blind and ten congenitally blind persons. It demonstrates that blind interviewees are expert users when they explore with their hands and describe four little...

The main goal of the DVPH (Verbal Description and Haptic Perception) survey was to measure the relative frequency of tactile references in the discourse of 30 visually impaired people: ten sighted temporarily blindfolded, ten late blind and ten congenitally blind persons.

The roles of Language mode and dominance in French-German bilinguals’ motion event descriptions

Stocker, Ladina ; Berthele, Raphael

In: Bilingualism: Language and Cognition, 2019, p. 1-13

Juggling with structurally and semantically different language systems leads to constructions that differ from the typical patterns in a language. Typical patterns in the domain of motion are characterized by more verbs encoding path in French; and more verbs encoding the manner of motion in German. An increase of manner verbs in French, for instance, can be ascribed to an influence from German....

Visualizing semantic data

Luggen, Michael

In: Visualizing Semantic Data, 2018, p. 1-6

Visualizing semantic data describes the task of using the additional self describing features of semantic data (Linked Data/RDF) to inform the process of creating vector or bitmap drawings.

Induction of potent neutralizing antibody responses by a designed protein nanoparticle accine for respiratory syncytial virus

Marcandalli, Jessica ; Fiala, Brooke ; Ols, Sebastian ; Perotti, Michela ; de van der Schueren, Willem ; Snijder, Joost ; Hodge, Edgar ; Benhaim, Mark ; Ravichandran, Rashmi ; Carter, Lauren ; Sheffler, Will ; Brunner, Livia ; Lawrenz, Maria ; Dubois, Patrice ; Lanzavecchia, Antonio ; Sallusto, Federica ; Lee, Kelly K. ; Veesler, David ; Correnti, Colin E. ; Stewart, Lance J. ; Baker, David ; Loré, Karin ; Perez, Laurent ; King, Neil P.

In: Cell, 2019, vol. 177, no. 6, p. 1420-1431.e17

Respiratory syncytial virus (RSV) is a worldwide public health concern for which no vaccine is available. Elucidation of the prefusion structure of the RSV F glycoprotein and its identification as the main target of neutralizing antibodies have provided new opportunities for development of an effective vaccine. Here, we describe the structure-based design of a self-assembling protein ...

Sumoylation regulates the stability and nuclease activity of Saccharomyces cerevisiae Dna2

Ranjha, Lepakshi ; Levikova, Maryna ; Altmannova, Veronika ; Krejci, Lumir ; Cejka, Petr

In: Communications Biology, 2019, vol. 2, p. 174

Dna2 is an essential nuclease-helicase that acts in several distinct DNA metabolic pathways including DNA replication and recombination. To balance these functions and prevent unscheduled DNA degradation, Dna2 activities must be regulated. Here we show that Saccharomyces cerevisiae Dna2 function is controlled by sumoylation. We map the sumoylation sites to the N-terminal regulatory domain of...
