Quantum computing is an important field of research that applies concepts of quantum physics to building more efficient computers. Although only rudimentary quantum computers have been built so far, many researchers believe that quantum computing has great potential and the quantum computers can efficiently perform some tasks which are otherwise not(More)
Ecstasy (3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine [MDMA]) polydrug users have verbal memory performance that is statistically significantly lower than that of control subjects. Studies have correlated long-term MDMA use with altered brain activation in regions that play a role in verbal memory. The aim of our study was to examine the association of lifetime(More)
BACKGROUND Selective serotonin reuptake inhibitors (SSRIs) are often prescribed in patients with postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS), and act at synaptic terminals to increase monoamine neurotransmitters. We hypothesized that they act to increase blood pressure and attenuate reflex tachycardia, thereby improving symptoms. Acute hemodynamic profiles after(More)
BACKGROUND Postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is a disorder of chronic orthostatic intolerance accompanied by excessive orthostatic tachycardia. Patients with POTS commonly have comorbid conditions such as attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, depression, or fibromyalgia that are treated with medications that inhibit the norepinephrine reuptake(More)
Mental clouding is an almost universal complaint among patients with postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS) but remains poorly understood. Thus, we have determined whether POTS patients exhibit deficits during neuropsychological testing relative to healthy subjects. A comprehensive battery of validated neuropsychological tests was administered to 28 female(More)
BACKGROUND Postural tachycardia syndrome (POTS) is characterized clinically not only by an exaggerated increase in heart rate (HR), but an associated cognitive impairment that disables many patients. Modafinil might be effective in improving the cognitive symptoms, but modafinil may stimulate the sympathetic nervous system and worsen tachycardia in POTS. We(More)
Psychogenic pseudosyncope (PPS) is the appearance of transient loss of consciousness (TLOC) in the absence of true loss of consciousness. Psychiatrically, most cases are classified as conversion disorder, which is hypothesized to represent the physical manifestation of internal stressors. The incidence of PPS is likely under-recognized and the disorder is(More)
The process of disguising a plaintext into ciphertext is called encryption and back into plaintext is called decryption. A cryptographic algorithm, is also called a cipher, is the mathematical function used for encryption and decryption. Many algorithms are available for this purpose. Triple DES is such an algorithm. Encryption using triple DES is possible(More)
