Validation of a French-language version of TeamSTEPPS® T-TPQ and T-TAQ questionnaires

Anh Nguyet Diep, Méryl Paquay, Jean-Christophe Servotte, Nadia Dardenne, Laure Istas, Pauline Van Ngoc, Mathilde Charlier, Alexandre Ghuysen & Anne-Françoise Donneau
Teamwork training and evaluation are essential to enhance safety and quality of care. The lack of the psychometric testing of the TeamSTEPPS® Teamwork Attitudes Questionnaire (T-TAQ) and Teamwork Perceptions Questionnaire (T-TPQ) across different language and cultural settings has questioned their widespread use because such attitudes and perceptions are highly subjective and context-bound. The present study aims to translate the T-TAQ and T-TPQ into the French language and validate the psychometric properties of the two questionnaires...

CGRN 1: Fragments of the sacrificial calendar of Corinth

Quel « manger local » quand on s’approvisionne dans une AMAP nantaise ?

Julien Noël, Sécou Omar Diédhiou & Margetic Christine
AMAP ou Association pour le maintien d’une agriculture paysanne… Cet acronyme s’est progressivement ancré dans le paysage de l’alimentation locale en France. Le mouvement, qui fête ses 20 ans en 2021 avec près de 3000 structures à l’échelle nationale, est particulièrement présent dans l’aire urbaine de Nantes. Soutien solidaire et collectif de «consom’acteurs» à des producteurs paysans via l’achat de paniers de produits de qualité, en quoi les AMAP nantaises sont-elles garantes d’un «manger local»...

Mechanistic insight on the inhibition of D, D-carboxypeptidase from Mycobacterium tuberculosis by β-lactam antibiotics: an ONIOM acylation study

Thandokuhle Ntombela, Anya Seupersad, Sibusiso Maseko, Collins U. Ibeji, Gideon Tolufashe, Siyabonga Innocent Maphumulo, Tricia Naicker, Sooraj Baijnath, Glenn E. M. Maguire, Thavendran Govender, Gyanu Lamichhane, Bahareh Honarparvar & Hendrik G. Kruger
Mycobacterium tuberculosis cell wall is intricate and impermeable to many agents. A D, D-carboxypeptidase (DacB1) is one of the enzymes involved in the biosynthesis of cell wall peptidoglycan and catalyzes the terminal D-alanine cleavage from pentapeptide precursors. Catalytic activity and mechanism by which DacB1 functions is poorly understood. Herein, we investigated the acylation mechanism of DacB1 by β-lactams using a 6-membered ring transition state model that involves a catalytic water molecule in the reaction pathway....

Data from: Shale-hosted biota from the Dismal Lakes Group in Arctic Canada supports an early Mesoproterozoic diversification of eukaryotes

Corentin C. Loron, Galen P. Halverson, Robert H. Rainbird, Tom Skulski, Elizabeth C. Turner & Emmanuelle J. Javaux
The Mesoproterozoic is an important era for the development of eukaryotic organisms in oceans. The earliest unambiguous eukaryotic microfossils are reported in late Paleoproterozoic shales from China and Australia. During the Mesoproterozoic, eukaryotes diversified in taxonomy, metabolism and ecology, with the advent of eukaryotic photosynthesis, osmotrophy, multicellularity, and predation. Despite these biological innovations, their fossil record is scarce before the late Mesoproterozoic. Here, we document an assemblage of organic-walled microfossils from the 1590-1270 Ma Dismal...

Perineuronal nets in HVC and plasticity in male canary song

Jacques Balthazart
Songbirds learn their vocalizations during developmental sensitive periods of song memorization and sensorimotor learning. Some seasonal songbirds, called open-ended learners, recapitulate transitions from sensorimotor learning and song crystallization on a seasonal basis during adulthood. In adult male canaries, sensorimotor learning occurs each year in autumn and leads to modifications of the syllable repertoire during successive breeding seasons. We previously showed that perineuronal nets (PNN) expression in song control nuclei decreases during this sensorimotor learning period....

Near-death experience in the public debate: Not reflecting the current scientific evidence

Charlotte Martial
On January 6th 2021, Netflix released a new docu-series called "Surviving Death", whose first episode is dedicated to near-death experiences (NDEs). We asked ALIUS member and NDE expert Charlotte Martial (neuropsychologist and post-doctoral researcher at the Coma Science Group) to share her perspective about this episode. She watched it with great interest and shares her enthusiasm that popular media addresses this fascinating and growing area of research, which has not received the scientific and medical...

Semi-artificial datasets as a resource for validation of bioinformatics pipelines for plant virus detection

Lucie Tamisier, Annelies Haegeman, Yoika Foucart, Nicolas Fouillien, Maher Al Rwahnih, Nihal Buzkan, Thierry Candresse, Michela Chiumenti, Kris De Jonghe, Marie Lefebvre, Paolo Margaria, Jean Sébastien Reynard, Kristian Stevens, Denis Kutnjak & Sébastien Massart
In the last decade, High-Throughput Sequencing (HTS) has revolutionized biology and medicine. This technology allows the sequencing of huge amount of DNA and RNA fragments at a very low price. In medicine, HTS tests for disease diagnostics are already brought into routine practice. However, the adoption in plant health diagnostics is still limited. One of the main bottlenecks is the lack of expertise and consensus on the standardization of the data analysis. The Plant Health...

A Collection of Greek Ritual Norms

Indian philosophy and the value of transformative experiences. An interview with Monima Chadha by Edvard Avilés and Matthieu Koroma

Monima Chadha, Edvard Avilés & Matthieu Koroma
In this interview, we engage in a cross-cultural discussion about the diversity of consciousness. Indian philosophy can seem quite cryptic and difficult to follow because it is a primary oral tradition. However, Monima Chadha has developed a series of work aiming at introducing the rich insights of Indian philosophy of mind into Western literature. Indeed, the translation of concepts and practices from the Indian to the Western context requires a solid knowledge of the Indian...

Design, synthesis, and molecular dynamics simulation studies of quinoline derivatives as protease inhibitors against SARS-CoV-2

Vishal K. Singh, Himani Chaurasia, Priyanka Kumari, Anup Som, Richa Mishra, Ritika Srivastava, Farha Naaz, Anuradha Singh & Ramendra K. Singh
A new series of quinoline derivatives has been designed and synthesized as probable protease inhibitors (PIs) against severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus 2. In silico studies using DS v20.1.0.19295 software have shown that these compounds behaved as PIs while interacting at the allosteric site of target Mpro enzyme (6LU7). The designed compounds have shown promising docking results, which revealed that all compounds formed hydrogen bonds with His41, His164, Glu166, Tyr54, Asp187, and showed π-interaction with...

How culture breaks down the mind-body divide. An interview with Maddalena Canna and Rebecca Seligman by Matthieu Koroma

Canna Maddalena, Rebecca Seligman & Matthieu Koroma
In this interview, anthropologists Maddalena Canna and Rebecca Seligman explain their recent research agenda investigating how culture shapes the relationship between the body and mind. After having studied trance, they shift their focus to Functional Neurological Disorder (FND), an illness in which sensory or motor symptoms do not match any identified physiological causes. Their approach relies on a mix of anthropological and psychophysiological methods to unravel the mechanisms by which cultural expectations influence the perception...
