Parenting and preschoolers’ executive functioning : A case of differential susceptibility?
A growing body of theoretical and empirical work has been attempting to answer the questions of how and how much of the effects of children’s early experience may depend on their inner characteristics. Theory and evidence ...
Alzheimer’s disease and memory strength : gradual decline of memory traces as a function of their strength
Objective : Episodic memory impairment is at the core of amnestic mild cognitive impair- ment (aMCI) and Alzheimer ’ s disease (AD). The origin of memory deficits may result either from an encoding deficit or from an ...
Memory for public events in mild cognitive impairment and Alzheimer’s disease : the importance of rehearsal
Ribot’s law refers to the better preservation of remote memories compared with recent ones that presumably characterizes retrograde amnesia. Even if Ribot-type temporal gradient has been extensively studied in retrograde ...
Deconstructing maternal sensitivity: Predictive relations to mother-child attachment in home and laboratory settings
Despite the well-documented importance of parental sensitivity for child development, there is a lack of consensus regarding how best to assess it. We investigated the factor structure of maternal caregiving behavior as ...
A qualitative impairment in face perception in Alzheimer’s disease : evidence from a reduced face inversion effect
face inversion effect in Alzheimer’s disease
Prevalent face recognition difficulties in Alzheimer’s disease (AD) have typically been attributed to the underlying episodic and semantic memory impairment. The aim of the current study was to determine if AD patients are ...
Intimacy, sexual satisfaction and sexual distress in vulvodynia couples : an observational study
Objective. Vulvodynia is a prevalent idiopathic pain condition with deleterious consequences for the sexuality of affected women and their spouses. Intimacy has been identified as a facilitator of adjustment to health ...

Memory impairment in EOAD and LOAD
The goal of this study was to investigate the specific patterns of memory breakdown in patients suffering from early-onset Alzheimer’s disease (EOAD) and late-onset Alzheimer’s disease (LOAD). Twenty EOAD patients, twenty ...
Why us? Perceived injustice is associated with more sexual and psychological distress in couples coping with genito-pelvic pain

Evolution of severe sleep-wake cycle disturbances following traumatic brain injury: a case study in both acute and subacute phases post-injury
Background. Sleep-wake disturbances are frequently reported following traumatic brain injury (TBI), but they remain poorly documented in the acute stage of injury. Little is known about their origin and evolution. Case ...
Visual fixation in the intensive care unit: a strong predictor of post-traumatic amnesia and long-term recovery after moderate-to-severe traumatic brain injury
Visual fixation in the ICU
(Lippincott, Williams & Wilkins, 2016-12-01)
Objective: We examined whether visual fixation at 24h of intensive care unit (ICU) admission is superior to the initial Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score to predict PTA duration and long-term TBI recovery. Design: Two-phase ...
