Every organization on the planet consisting of more than one person has already realized that their information technology infrastructure is effectively a distributed computing system. To integrate information assets and use information effectively, it must be accessible across the department, across the company, across the world and more importantly across(More)
We present a depth-first search algorithm for generating all maximal cliques of an undirected graph, in which pruning methods are employed as in the Bron–Kerbosch algorithm. All the maximal cliques generated are output in a tree-like form. Subsequently, we prove that its worst-case time complexity is O(3 n/3) for an n-vertex graph. This is optimal as a(More)
We describe a module mechanism, which we call difference-based modules, and an object-oriented language we call MixJuice. MixJuice is an enhancement to the Java language that adopts difference-based modules instead of Java's original module mechanism. Modules are units of information hiding, reuse and separate compilation. We have completely separated the(More)
The present study has proposed a new method for estimating the pressure head (P(t)[mm Hg]) and flow (Q(t)[L/min]) of a centrifugal pump on the basis of voltage (V(t)[V]), current (I(t)[A]), and rotational speed (N(t)[k(rpm)]) of the DC motor for a pump without any additional sensors. In the proposed estimation method, two auto-regressive exogenous (ARX)(More)
We proposed [11C]KF18446 as a selective radioligand for mapping the adenosine A2A receptors being highly enriched in the striatum by positron emission tomography (PET). In the present study, we investigated whether [11C]KF18446 PET can detect the change in the striatal adenosine A2A receptors in the rat after unilateral injection of an excitotoxin(More)
Fibroblast growth factor (FGF) 8 has been well established to play a critical role in the early development of the central nervous system (CNS). We report here extensive neuronal localization and neurotrophic function of FGF8 in the nervous system. In sections of mouse embryos at E10.5, FGF8 was immunohistochemically found in neurons at the marginal zones(More)
The present study aimed to determine estrogen feedback action sites to mediate prepubertal restraint of gonadotropin-releasing hormone (GnRH)/luteinizing hormone (LH) release in female rats. Wistar-Imamichi strain rats were ovariectomized (OVX) and received a local estradiol-17β (estradiol) or cholesterol microimplant in several brain areas, such as the(More)
Nicotine produces profound behavioral effects in humans, but little is known about the sites of its action. There is a hypothesis that frontal lobe and limbic/cingulate cortical structures might be the sites. In this study, we examined the effects of cigarette smoking on feeling and cerebral blood flow (CBF) in human subjects. Young and healthy 9 cigarette(More)
It is suggested that mastication stimulates the brain and accelerates its energy-consuming metabolism. This study was designed to determine its effects on regional cerebral blood flow (rCBF) using xenon-enhanced computed tomography (Xe-CT). Seven male volunteers, aged 24-57 years, inhaled 30% xenon in a 4 minutes wash-in and 4 minutes wash-out protocol. CT(More)
Two patients with extracranial internal carotid artery (ICA) stenosis and tandem stenosis of the ipsilateral intracranial ICA were treated simultaneously by angioplasty with stenting. A 68-year-old man who presented with neovascular glaucoma had 90% stenosis of the right cervical ICA and 80% stenosis of the ipsilateral petrous ICA. A 74-year-old man who(More)
