Vertical structure of debris discs

Context. The vertical thickness of debris discs is often used as a measure of these systems

Depth and coral cover drive the distribution of a coral macroborer across two reef systems

Bioerosion, the removal of calcium carbonate from coral frameworks by living organisms, influences a variety of reef features, from their topographic complexity to the net balance of carbonate budgets. Little is known, however, about how macroborers, which bore into reef substrates leaving traces greater than 0.1 mm diameter, are distributed across coral reefs, particularly reef...

Characterizing belief bias in syllogistic reasoning: A hierarchical Bayesian meta-analysis of ROC data

The belief-bias effect is one of the most-studied biases in reasoning. A recent study of the phenomenon using the signal detection theory (SDT) model called into question all theoretical accounts of belief bias by demonstrating that belief-based differences in the ability to discriminate between valid and invalid syllogisms may be an artifact stemming from the use of...

An open-source tool for analysis and automatic identification of dendritic spines using machine learning

Synaptic plasticity, the cellular basis for learning and memory, is mediated by a complex biochemical network of signaling proteins. These proteins are compartmentalized in dendritic spines, the tiny, bulbous, post-synaptic structures found on neuronal dendrites. The ability to screen a high number of molecular targets for their effect on dendritic spine structural plasticity...

1.65 μm (H-band) surface photometry of galaxies - IV. observations of 170 galaxies with the Calar Alto 2.2 m telescope

We present near-infrared (H band) surface photometry of 170 galaxies, obtained in 1997 using the Calar Alto 2.2 m telescope equipped with the NICMOS3 camera MAGIC. The majority of our targets are selected among bright members of the Virgo cluster, however galaxies in the A262 and Cancer clusters and in the Coma/A1367 supercluster are also included. This data set is aimed at...

Méthode de préconcentration par extraction en phase solide : principe et application aux industries environnementales et pétrolières

Cet article a pour objectif de présenter les caractéristiques de l'extraction en phase solide pour les analyses environnementales à partir de matrices ou d'extraits liquides. Les principes fondamentaux qui régissent l'extraction sont expliqués afin de pouvoir choisir la nature et la quantité de phase extractante selon la matrice des échantillons et les propriétés des solutés...

Microbiote intestinal et obésité : impact des lipides bioactifs issus du système endocannabinoïde

De nombreux travaux ont associé le microbiote intestinal au développement de désordres métaboliques. Parmi les mécanismes potentiellement impliqués dans le dialogue bactéries-hôtes, le système endocannabinoïde (eCB) et ses lipides bioactifs jouent un rôle important. Nos travaux suggèrent l’existence d’un dialogue à double-sens entre l’organisme et les bactéries : le tissu adipeux...
