BACKGROUND Sentence comprehension requires linguistic processing as well as cognitive resources such as working memory (WM) and information-processing speed (IPS). The authors hypothesize that sentence comprehension difficulty in patients with mild PD is due to degradation of the large-scale neural network that supports cognitive resources during sentence(More)
Extended Abstract The necessity for mechanisms that provide service survivability (i.e., seamless restoration of networking services affected by random failures) in battlefield networks, is both obvious and critical. This paper addresses the fundamental challenge of providing service survivability via efficient fault localization and self-healing techniques(More)
The photon spectrum in the inclusive electromagnetic radiative decays of the B meson, B → X(s)γ plus B → X(d)γ, is studied using a data sample of (382.8 ± 4.2) × 10(6)Υ(4S) → BB decays collected by the BABAR experiment at SLAC. The spectrum is used to extract the branching fraction B(B → X(s)γ) = (3.21 ± 0.33) × 10(-4) for E(γ) >1.8 GeV and the direct CP(More)
Blood samples were collected from 1328 dairy cows of different parities in 46 herds in two regions of South Korea and tested for bovine viral diarrhoea virus (BVDV) by reverse transcriptase-PCR (RT-PCR) for the detection of viral sequences in whole blood and by a commercial elisa for the detection of bvdv-specific antibodies. None of the animals was(More)
Recent astrophysical and terrestrial experiments have motivated the proposal of a dark sector with GeV-scale gauge boson force carriers and new Higgs bosons. We present a search for a dark Higgs boson using 516 fb(-1) of data collected with the BABAR detector. We do not observe a significant signal and we set 90% confidence level upper limits on the product(More)
We report the observation of the decay B- → D(s)((*)+) K- ℓ- ν(ℓ) based on 342  fb(-1) of data collected at the Υ(4S) resonance with the BABAR detector at the PEP-II e+ e- storage rings at SLAC. A simultaneous fit to three D(s)(+) decay chains is performed to extract the signal yield from measurements of the squared missing mass in the B meson decay. We(More)
A glycoprotein (GP) which is immunochemically and biologically related to human prostatic acid phosphatase (PAP) has been isolated from human seminal plasma by ammonium sulfate precipitation followed by sequential concanavalin A:Sepharose 4B column, anion-exchange chromatography and gel filtration. The purified GP was shown to be homogeneous by disc- and(More)
STUDY DESIGN Magnetic resonance images (MRIs) were used to determine the geometry of the tissues studied. OBJECTIVE To investigate the geometric parameters of tissues around the lumbosacral joint. SUMMARY OF BACKGROUND DATA Cross-sectional area (CSA), moment arms, and line of action of the tissues located at lumbosacral joint (L5-S1), which are(More)
We present measurements of branching fractions and charge asymmetries for seven B-meson decays with an eta, eta', or omega meson in the final state. The data sample corresponds to 89x10(6) BB pairs produced from e(+)e(-) annihilation at the Upsilon(4S) resonance. We measure the following branching fractions in units of 10(-6): B(B+-->eta(More)
We search for single-photon decays of the Υ(1S) resonance, Υ → γ + invisible, where the invisible state is either a particle of definite mass, such as a light Higgs boson A⁰, or a pair of dark matter particles, χχ. Both A⁰ and χ are assumed to have zero spin. We tag Υ(1S) decays with a dipion transition Υ(2S) → π⁺π⁻Υ(1S) and look for events with a single(More)
