Résumé

Une étude prospective randomisée compare le taux de réussite aux concours médicaux chez 26 étudiants qui prenaient du Hericium erinaceus (HE) et suivaient un programme Tomatis versus 42 étudiants témoins. Le groupe Tomatis/HE se composait à l'origine de 42 étudiants, mais 16 personnes (dont 11 doublants) n'ont pas suivi le traitement. Dans le groupe HE/Tomatis, 69,2 % réussissent leur concours contre 51,2 % dans le groupe témoin (p < 0,05). Le taux de succès est de 66,7 % pour les primants dans le groupe HE/Tomatis versus 25 % dans le groupe témoin (p < 0,001). Pour le sous-groupe Tomatis/HE non suivi de 16 étudiants, le taux de réussite est comparable au groupe témoin (50 versus 51,2 %) sauf pour les doublants chez lesquels il est plus faible (54,5 versus 88,2 % ; p < 0,001), signe de démotivation. HE associé à la méthode Tomatis accroît le taux de succès aux concours médicaux chez les primants.

Abstract

A prospective randomized study compared the success rate to a comparative examination in medical sciences of 26 students who were given Hericium erinaceus (HE) and followed a Tomatis program versus 42 control students. The group Tomatis/HE was first composed with 42 studients. However, 16 persons (including 11 doublings) did not perform any training or take any HE. The success rate was equal to 69.2% in the HE/Tomatis group versus 51,2% in the control group (P < 0.05). The success rate in the HE/Tomatis group was equal to 66.7% in students who tried for the first time versus 25% in the control group (P < 0.001). For the sub-group Tomatis/HE of 16 non-observers, the success rate was similar to the control group (50 versus 51.2%) except for doubling (54.5 versus 88.2%; P < 0.001) suggesting some lack of motivation. HE/Tomatis increases the success rate in comparative medical examinations for motivated students.
