Monti, Matteo ; Klöckner-Cronauer, * , Christina ; Hautz, Stephanie C. ; Schnabel, Kai P. ; Breckwoldt, Jan ; Junod-Perron, Noëlle ; Feller, Sabine ; Bonvin, Raphael ; Huwendiek, Sören

In: BMC Medical Education, 2020, vol. 20, no. 1, p. 171

Background: As the communication competencies of physicians are crucial for providing optimal patient care, their assessment in the context of the high-stakes Objective Structured Clinical Examination (OSCE) is of paramount importance. Despite abundant literature on the topic, evidence-based recommendations for the assessment of communication competencies in high stakes OSCEs are scarce. As ...

Silver-containing titanium dioxide nanocapsules for combating multidrug-resistant bacteria

Hérault, Nelly ; Wagner, Julia ; Abram, Sarah-Luise ; Widmer, Jérôme ; Horvath, Lenke ; Vanhecke, Dimitri ; Bourquin, Carole ; Fromm, Katharina M

In: International Journal of Nanomedicine, 2020, vol. Volume 15, p. 1267–1281

Background: Joint arthroplasty has improved the quality of life of patients worldwide, but infections of the prosthesis are frequent and cause significant morbidity. Antimicrobial coatings for implants promise to prevent these infections. Methods: We have synthesized nanocapsules of titanium dioxide in amorphous or anatase form containing silver as antibacterial agent and tested their impact ...

The foraging ecology of two neighbouring chimpanzee communities from Budongo Forest

Villioth, Jakob ; Newton-Fisher, Nicholas E. (Dir.) ; Zuberbühler, Klaus (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

Chimpanzees (Pan troglodytes) often serve as a model species to test socio-ecological theories of foraging behaviour. Due to a high degree of fission-fusion dynamics, essential foraging variables, such as group size, patch size and travel distance, are expected to be more closely linked in chimpanzees than in animals that forage in cohesive groups. While it has been clearly established...

Impacts of urban gardening on soil quality, soil fauna and soil multifunctionality

Tresch, Simon ; Le Bayon, Claire (Dir.) ; Fliessbach, Andreas (Codir.) ; Moretti, Marco (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

Urban gardens are important and at the same time popular greenspaces. As urban areas are expanding globally, urban gardens play an increasingly important role in contributing to essential ecosystem services, well-being of citizens, and biodiversity in a city. Gardening activities determine above- and belowground diversity of plants and insects. However, the effect of gardening activities on soil...

Compact laser sources from the extreme ultraviolet to the mid-infrared spectral range

Merceron, Loïc P. J. M. ; Südmeyer, Thomas (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

Lasers have revolutionized the way we live and work in so many ways and have become a major part of our lives. We use them in telecommunications, medical care, material processing, data storage and printing, just to name a few. Lasers have proved to be important tools and are a major subject of research in science, continuously developed further and finding new uses. Pushed by the need to...

Complementary medicine provision in an academic hospital: evaluation and structuring project

Rodondi, Pierre-Yves ; Lüthi, Emmanuelle ; Dubois, Julie ; Roy, Edith ; Burnand, Bernard ; Grass, Geneviève

In: The Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine, 2019, vol. 25, no. 6, p. 606–612

Objectives: Complementary medicine (CM) has become increasingly available in hospital settings in several countries. Nonetheless, there are disparities in the provision and organization of CM between hospitals and even within a single hospital. This was the case at Lausanne University Hospital, where neither a registry of CM practices nor homogeneous guidelines for the provision of CM...

Mapping the development of visual information use for facial expression recognition

Rodger, Helen ; Caldara, Roberto (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Fribourg, 2019.

In this thesis, I aimed to map the development of facial expression recognition from early childhood up to adulthood by identifying for the first time in the literature the quantity and quality of visual information needed to recognise the six 'basic' emotions. Using behavioural and eye tracking measures, the original contributions of this thesis include: 1. An unbiased fine-grained mapping of...

Reconquérir la ville après un épisode psychotique : pratiques, espaces et temporalités

Codeluppi, Zoé ; Söderström, Ola (Dir.) ; Conus, Philippe (Codir.) ; Matthey, Laurent (Codir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

The aim of this research is to investigate the role of the urban environment in the recovery process of psychosis. I look at the practices, spaces and temporalities of reconquering the city. I focus particularly on young people having recently experienced a first psychotic episode in the city of Lausanne, Switzerland. This analysis examines recovery from an ecological perspective that considers...
