Decision-making, a contagious process

Les individus apprennent à évaluer le niveau de prudence, de patience ou de fainéantise dont font preuve les autres après avoir observé leur comportement, mais surtout, cela influe sur leurs propres décisions, sans même qu’ils s’en rendent compte. Une découverte qui pourrait avoir des retombées en neurosciences. Les décisions de nos voisins inspirent-elles les nôtres ? C’est ce que laissent entendre les travaux de Jean Daunizeau et Marie Devaine, deux chercheurs Inserm à l’Institut du Cerveau et de la Moelle épinière à Paris (Inserm/ CNRS/ UPMC). Ils ont étudié le comportement de personnes soumises à des choix faisant appel à la prudence, la patience ou l’effort et montrent qu’après avoir observé le comportement d’autres individus, elles se mettent à les imiter, sans même s’en rendre compte !

Measuring gray matter to predict recovery from coma

Predicting recovery from coma following cardiac arrest remains a question to which physicians do not have an exact response. When – and if – a critical care patient will recover consciousness is evaluated essentially by means of recurrent clinical examinations and the recording of brain activity. Researchers at Inserm (Inserm Unit 1214 Toulouse NeuroImaging Center) led by Stein Silva, have recently developed a method that uses magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to predict such recovery. The results were published this month in Critical Care Medicine.

Moving to summer time: how does it impact our health?

During the last weekend in March we moved to summer time.

During the night of Saturday into Sunday, we put our clocks forward one hour.

Does this change in the hour, whose benefit lies mainly in energy savings, have an impact on our health? Does it disturb our biological clock and the quality of our sleep ?
