Vanishing white matter disease (VWM) is a heritable leukodystrophy linked to mutations in translation initiation factor 2B (eIF2B). Although the clinical course of this disease has been relatively well described, the cellular consequences of EIF2B mutations on neural cells are unknown. Here we have established cell cultures from the brain of an individual(More)
We propose mental fatigue measurement using a wearable eye detection system. The system is capable of acquiring movement of the pupil and blinking from the light reflected from the eye. The reflection is detected by dye-sensitized photovoltaic cells. Since these cells are patterned onto the eyeglass and do not require external input power, the system is(More)
Mental state or workload of a person are very relevant when the person is executing delicate tasks such as piloting an aircraft, operating a crane because the high level of workload could prevent accomplishing the task and lead to disastrous results. Some frameworks have been developed to assess the workload and determine whether the person is capable of(More)
An inflammatory myofibroblastic tumor (IMT) is an immunohistochemically diverse entity demonstrating neoplastic and nonneoplastic qualities. Although IMTs can arise in any area of the body, lesions arising in certain sites, namely, the nasal cavity, paranasal sinuses, and pterygopalatine fossa, demonstrate a heightened neoplastic and invasive potential.(More)
We proposed a wearable line-of-sight detection system that utilizes micro-fabricated transparent optical sensors on eyeglasses. These sensors can detect the reflection of light from the eye, in which the intensity from the white of the eye is stronger than that of the pupil, and can thus deduce the position of the pupil. LOS detection was successfully(More)
The encapsulation of biomolecules in solid materials that retain the native properties of the molecule is a desired feature for the development of biosensors and biocatalysts. In the current study, protein entrapment in silica-based materials is explored using the sol-gel technique. This work surveys the effects of silica confinement on the structure of(More)
We evaluated the effects of concurrent random temporal contingencies of water delivery on the location of rats' behavior. In this experiment, two concurrent random-time schedules delivered water in two dispensers that were located at opposite ends of the chamber, and provided complementary frequencies of water deliveries while the overall number of(More)
