Dysmenorrhea is the most prevalent gynecological disorder in women of child-bearing age. Dysmenorrhea is associated with central sensitization and functional and structural changes in the brain. Our recent brain morphometry study disclosed that dysmenorrhea is associated with trait-related abnormal gray matter (GM) changes, even in the absence of menstrual(More)
To guarantee the delivery of real-time messages before their deadline, a real-time channel or connection must be established before the transmission of any real-time messages. During this channel-establishment phase, one must rst select a route between the source and destination of this channel and then reserve suucient resources along this route so that(More)
Pressure changes in cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) that occur with respiration rhythms have been studied in animals and humans for more than 100 years. This phenomenon has been recently validated in vivo on MR images by applying spectral analysis to signal-time curves at selected regions of interest. However, selecting regions of interest requires knowledge of(More)
Primary dysmenorrhea (PDM) is the most prevalent gynecological problem. Many key brain systems are engaged in pain processing. In light of dynamic communication within and between systems (or networks) in shaping pain experience and behavior, the intra-regional functional connectivity (FC) in the hub regions of the systems may be altered and the functional(More)
Real-time communication with performance guarantees is expected to become an important and necessary feature of future computer networks. In this paper, we present a scheme which can provide real-time communication services with both absolute and statistical performance guarantees on multiaccess bus networks for given input traffic characteristics and(More)
The effect of temporal interference of physiological signals on time-lag effective connectivity, derived from a functional network connectivity tool box (FNC), was examined by a blood-oxygen-level-dependent functional MRI study of action. The known effect of physiological signals on time-lag FNC was verified by (a) comparison of time-lag FNC analyses(More)
