The present study investigated gender differences in the effects of presynaptic and postsynaptic DA agonists on latent inhibition in the passive avoidance paradigm. During the preexposure phase, 32 male and 32 female Wistar rats were exposed to a passive avoidance box (or a different context) and received drug injections in three trials: the control group(More)
UNLABELLED Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (TENS) is a noninvasive technique used to reduce pain. It is claimed that TENS frequency is a key determinant of outcome. This study compared TENS delivered at 3 pulses per second (pps) and 80 pps on blunt pressure pain in human participants when TENS intensity was standardized at a strong nonpainful(More)
Electrophysiological studies suggest that there are differential frequency effects during TENS. The aim of this experimental study was to assess the effects of strong non-painful TENS administered at 3 pulses per second (pps) and 80 pps on cold-pressor pain in healthy human participants. A repeated measure design was used with participants receiving TENS at(More)
— The stability and performance of a networked control system (NCS) strongly depends on the communication quality, e.g. of the communication time delay. Aiming at performance oriented control over networks in the presence of piecewise constant time delay, two novel control approaches are investigated. In the first approach, the time delay is monitored and(More)
The performance of vision-based control systems, in particular, of highly dynamic vision-based motion control systems, is often limited by the low sampling rate of the visual feedback caused by the long image processing time. In order to overcome this problem, the networked visual servo control (NVSC), which integrates networked computational resources for(More)
It is well known that the stability and performance of a networked control system (NCS) are strongly affected by the transmission delay, which is usually random in communication networks such as Ethernet. In order to cope with the random transmission delay and increase the control performance, a novel switching control approach for NCS is proposed. The(More)
— In this paper, a novel switching controller is proposed for a networked visual servo control system with varying feedback delay due to image processing and data transmission. The varying image processing delay caused by the varying number of extracted features for pose estimation due to different view angles, illumination conditions and noise, is modeled(More)
—In this paper, a networked visual servo control system with distributed computation is proposed to overcome the low sampling rate problem in vision-based control systems. A real-time image data transmission protocol based on Real-time Transport Protocol (RTP) is developed. The captured images are sent to different processing nodes connected over a(More)
Controversies and interest are present in the associations between specific brain locations and depression or anxiety. This study investigated the association between stroke location and emotional changes in stroke patients. This prospective observational study analyzed the neuroimages and neuropsychiatric conditions of 26 patients with acute middle(More)
