We have shown previously that epidermal growth factor (EGF) plus fibroblast growth factor (FGF2) expands the neural precursor cells in the ependyma of the normal adult rat spinal cord in vivo. To investigate the therapeutic effect of these factors on spinal cord injury (SCI), we administered EGF, FGF2, EGF plus FGF2, or artificial cerebrospinal fluid (aCSF)(More)
We propose a method of describing human activities from video images based on concept hierarchies of actions. Major difficulty in transforming video images into textual descriptions is how to bridge a semantic gap between them, which is also known as inverse Hollywood problem. In general, the concepts of events or actions of human can be classified by(More)
We report an unusual case of a 56-year-old woman with a supratentorial anaplastic ependymoma localized in the parenchyma without continuity with the ventricular system and brain surface. The patient presented with vertigo, and a calcified mass was detected in the left temporal parenchyma. Five years later, she had seizure of the right extremities. Computed(More)
