The purpose of the study was to investigate the relationship between different exercise modes and visuospatial working memory in healthy older adults. A cross-sectional design was adopted. A total of 111 healthy older adults were enrolled in the study. They were classified by the exercise-related questionnaire to be in an open-skill group, closed-skill… (More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate whether listening to relaxing music would help reduce mental fatigue and to maintain performance after a continuous performance task. The experiment involved two fatigue evaluation phases carried out before and after a fatigue inducing phase. A 1-hour AX-continuous performance test was used to induce mental… (More)
In most quantitative trait loci (QTL) mapping studies, phenotypes are assumed to follow normal distributions. Deviations from this assumption may affect the accuracy of QTL detection, leading to detection of false positive QTL. To improve the robustness of QTL mapping methods, we replace the normal distribution assumption for residuals in a multiple QTL… (More)
This paper presents the design of a low input (0.75 to 1.75V) and low power dissipation pipelined CMOS ADC. The 8 bits ADC consumes 78.3mW power at 2.5V supply voltage. The DNL and INL are 0.6LSB and 0.7LSB respectively, and SFDR is 51.259dB at 195kHz input frequency. The chip area is 1.023 mm × 0.795 mm with TSMC025..m CMOS technology.
