Differential impairments in irony comprehension in brain-damaged individuals : Insight from contextual processing, theory of mind and executive functions

Cordonier, Natacha

In: Neuropsychology, 2020, p. 1-51

Objective: The comprehension of irony can be affected after brain injuries. The cognitive mechanisms accounting for such disorders remain yet unclear. The heterogeneity of cognitive profiles of brain-damaged individuals and the use of independent tests to measure the links between these mechanisms and the comprehension of irony might contribute to this lack of clarity. The present study...

Platelet transforming growth factor-β1 induces liver sinusoidal endothelial cells to secrete interleukin-6

Balaphas, Alexandre ; Meyer, Jeremy ; Perozzo, Remo ; Zeisser-Labouebe, Magali ; Berndt, Sarah ; Turzi, Antoine ; Fontana, Pierre ; Scapozza, Leonardo ; Gonelle-Gispert, Carmen ; Bühler, Leo H.

In: Cells, 2020, vol. 9, no. 5, p. 1311

The roles and interactions of platelets and liver sinusoidal endothelial cells in liver regeneration are unclear, and the trigger that initiates hepatocyte proliferation is unknown. We aimed to identify the key factors released by activated platelets that induce liver sinusoidal endothelial cells to produce interleukin-6 (IL-6), a cytokine implicated in the early phase of liver regeneration....

Design d’un portail pour l’archivage des données de la recherche et proposition d’interfaces pour inciter les chercheurs/structures à déposer leurs données

Favre, Marion ; Hahling, Héloïse ; Burgi, Pierre-Yves (dir.)

(Travail de recherche réalisé dans le cadre du Master of Science HES-SO en Sciences de l'information à la Haute école de gestion de Genève (HEG-GE), Filière Information documentaire, 2020)

Le DLCM est un consortium suisse dont le but est d’aider les chercheurs dans la gestion de leurs données de recherche. Il est en voie de compléter sa gamme de services par une plateforme de préservation à long terme des données de recherche – Yareta pour Genève et Olos pour la Suisse – et nous a mandatées pour enquêter sur les besoins des utilisateurs d’une telle infrastructure,...

Frequency noise correlation between the offset frequency and the mode spacing in a mid-infrared quantum cascade laser frequency comb

Shehzad, Atif ; Brochard, Pierre ; Matthey, Renaud ; Kapsalidis, Filippos ; Shahmohammadi, Mehran ; Beck, Mattias ; Hugi, Andreas ; Jouy, Pierre ; Faist, Jérôme ; Südmeyer, Thomas ; Schilt, Stéphane

In: Optics Express, 2020, vol. 28, no. 6, p. 8200-8210

The generation of frequency combs in the mid-infrared (MIR) spectral range by quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) has the potential for revolutionizing dual-comb multi-heterodyne spectroscopy in the molecular fingerprint region. However, in contrast to frequency combs based on passively mode-locked ultrafast lasers, their operation relies on a completely different mechanism resulting from a four-wave...

The Nonverbal Processing of Actions Is an Area of Relative Strength in the Semantic Variant of Primary Progressive Aphasia

Auclair-Ouellet, Noémie ; Fossard, Marion ; Macoir, Joël ; Laforce, Robert

In: Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research (JSLHR), 2020, p. 1-16

Purpose Better performance for actions compared to objects has been reported in the semantic variant of primary progressive aphasia (svPPA). This study investigated the influence of the assessment task (naming, semantic picture matching) over the dissociation between objects and actions. Method Ten individuals with svPPA and 17 matched controls completed object and...

Taking Cantonal Variations of Integration Policy Seriously — or How to Validate International Concepts at the Subnational Comparative Level

Manatschal, Anita

In: Swiss Political Science Review (SPSR), 2011, vol. 17, no. 3, p. 336-357

Subnational varieties of immigrant integration policy, which are particularly salient in federal states, remain largely neglected by migration studies. Following Lijphart, who long demanded to verify international research at the subnational level, this study aims at capturing subnational policy variations using the example of Swiss cantons. In line with international approaches, cantonal...

Reciprocity as a trigger of social cooperation in contemporary immigration societies?

Manatschal, Anita

In: Acta Sociologica, 2015, vol. 58, no. 3, p. 233-248

While the system stabilizing function of reciprocity is widely acknowledged, much less attention has been paid to the argument that reciprocity might initiate social cooperation in the first place. This paper tests Gouldner’s early assumption that reciprocity may act as a ‘starting mechanism’ of social cooperation in consolidating societies. The empirical test scenario builds on...

A biologically-inspired model to predict perceived visual speed as a function of the stimulated portion of the visual field

Solari, Fabio ; Caramenti, Martina ; Chessa, Manuela ; Pretto, Paolo ; Bülthoff, Heinrich H. ; Bresciani, Jean-Pierre

In: Frontiers in Neural Circuits, 2019, vol. 13, p. -

Spatial orientation relies on a representation of the position and orientation of the body relative to the surrounding environment. When navigating in the environment, this representation must be constantly updated taking into account the direction, speed, and amplitude of body motion. Visual information plays an important role in this updating process, notably via optical flow. Here, we...
