abstract We have developed a video-rate stereo machine that has the capability of generating a dense depth map at the video rate. The performance bench marks of the CMU video rate stereo machine are: 1) multi image input of up to 6 cameras; 2) throughput of 30 million point × disparity measurement per second; 3) frame rate of 30 frame/sec; 4) a dense depth(More)
The antisaccade task has been widely used to investigate the neural mechanisms underlying volitional movement control. In this task, subjects suppress reflexive saccades to the sudden appearance of peripheral visual stimuli (prosaccades) and generate a saccade in the opposite direction. Recent imaging studies suggest that the globus pallidus (GP) is(More)
Little is known about the use of histidine-tryptophan-ketoglutarate (HTK) preservation solution for pancreas preservation. We compared early pancreas graft outcomes at four pancreas transplant programs within the state of Michigan in 2002 and 2003 (University of Wisconsin [UW] era) with those in 2004 (HTK era). The primary endpoint was early graft loss. The(More)
—This paper describes a new vision chip architecture for high-speed target tracking. The processing speed and the number of pixels are improved by hardware implementation of a special algorithm which utilizes a property of high-speed vision and introduction of bit-serial and cumulative summation circuits. As a result, 18 objects in a 128 128 image can be(More)
The ability of adeno-associated virus serotype 1 to 8 (AAV1 to AAV8) vectors expressing the human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1) Env gp160 (AAV-HIV) to induce an immune response was evaluated in BALB/c mice. The AAV5 vector showed a higher tropism for both mouse and human dendritic cells (DCs) than did the AAV2 vector, whereas other AAV serotype(More)
Minimally invasive procedures are considered to be safe and effective approaches to the management of surgical liver disease. However, this indication remains controversial for living donor hepatectomy. Between 2000 and 2011, living donor right hepatectomy (LDRH) was performed 58 times. Standard right hepatectomy was performed in 30 patients via a subcostal(More)
Detailed knowledge of the inhibitory input to trigeminal motoneurons is needed to understand better the central mechanisms of jaw movements. Here a quantitative analysis of terminals contacting somata of jaw-closing (JC) and jaw-opening (JO) alpha-motoneurons, and of JC gamma-motoneurons, was performed by use of serial sectioning and postembedding(More)
Staphylococcus aureus is the most important pathogen in nosocomial infections, including bloodstream infections. Prompt identification of S. aureus from blood cultures and detection of methicillin resistance are essential in cases of suspected sepsis. A novel nucleic acid amplification technique, loop-mediated isothermal amplification (LAMP), which(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to evaluate the outcome of patients with intrahepatic cholangiocarcinoma (ICCA) incidentally found in the explanted liver after liver transplantation. MATERIAL AND METHODS We retrospectively reviewed 1188 recipients undergoing liver transplantation from August 2003 to August 2014; 13 patients were found to have ICCA(More)
Although the roles of the basal ganglia in the control of saccadic eye movements have been extensively examined, little is known about their roles in smooth pursuit. Recent anatomical data suggest that, like somatic movements, smooth pursuit may also be regulated by signals through the basal ganglia thalamocortical pathways. To understand whether the basal(More)
