Several clinical and animal studies of different pain models reported that motor cortex stimulation (MCS) has an antinociceptive effect. In our previous study, the response of the primary somatosensory cortex (SI) to peripheral stimuli decreased after MCS. The aim of the present study was to investigate involvement of the periaqueductal gray (PAG) in this(More)
Motor cortex stimulation (MCS) is a promising clinical procedure to help alleviate chronic pain. Animal models demonstrated that MCS is effective in lessening nocifensive behaviors. The present study explored the effects of MCS on cortical somatosensory evoked potentials (SEPs) recorded at the primary somatosensory cortex (SI) of the rat. SEPs were evoked(More)
A microprocessor-based touch-screen Human-Machine Interface (HMI) and Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) standard libraries are applied to construct models for creating supervisory control software. This software, in turn, is developed and presented for the Graphical User Interface (GUI) functions used in agriculture wastes reuses process of steam-boiling(More)
Suitable medium for production of milk clotting enzyme (MCE) by Bacillus subtilis (natto) Takahashi in submerged liquid-state fermentation was screened, the nutrient factors affecting MCE production was optimized by response surface methodology. The MCE production by B. subtilis (natto) Takahashi was increased significantly by 428% in the optimal medium(More)
The performance of face recognition systems depends on conditions being consistent, including lighting, pose and facial expression. To solve the problem produced by pose variation it is suggested to pre-estimate the pose orientation of the given head image before it is recognized. In this paper, we propose a head pose estimation method that is an(More)
