INHIBITION ET EMOTION : Conservations, fonctions exécutives et Hédonie.

Abstract : This thesis presents original experimental contributions at the fields of studies of inhibition and emotion like in the conceptualization of the cognitive development of childhood at the adulthood. Inhibition is studied by sometimes new experiments of mental chronometry on conservation tasks of number, length and weight. A battery of tests of executive functions is also proposed on the subjects in order to test the assumption of inhibition like "age-and-domain-specific". The experimental data on inhibition reinforce the assumption of specific inhibition and underline the possibility of considering two ways of cognitive treatment different according to the type of quantity implied in the tasks of conservation : continuous or discontinuous. A new paradigm of study of the pleasure in the child is also presented consistent in a computerized procedure of presentation of hedonic photographs. The results indicate types of pleasures different in the children compared to the already known results from the adults in psychopathology. The comparison of the results on the process of inhibition and those on the emotion indicates a bond between the visual hedonia and inhibition
