SUMMARY We examine comprehension skill differences in the processes of word-to-text integration, the connection of the meaning of a word, as it is read, to a representation of the text. We review two 'on-line' integration studies using event related potentials (ERPs) to provide fine-grain temporal data on the word-to-text processes of adult readers. The(More)
This paper presents a novel noncontact measurement technique that entails using a single-compound triple complementary split-ring resonator (SC-TCSRR) to determine the complex permittivity and thickness of a material under test (MUT). The proposed technique overcomes the problem engendered by the existence of air gaps between the sensor ground plane and the(More)
This paper applies UWB technologies in a special aspect for the transmission of energy rather than messages to achieve a novel wireless impulsive powering approach and enhance the power conversion efficiency (PCE) for low average input power. The whole impulsive wireless power transmitting and receiving systems are implemented to validate the feasibility of(More)
— In this study, we experiment with the feasibility of wireless telemetry using a miniature wireless system fully implanted within the eye. Of significant importance is the ability to transmit signals from miniature packaged systems without undue absorption of signals. Theoretical calculations found the attenuation through the eye to be-4.5 dB in the far(More)
With the development of location aware sensor applications, location determination has become an increasingly important middleware technology. Numerous current technologies for location determination of sensor nodes use the received signal strength from sensor nodes using omnidirectional antennas. However, an increasing number of sensor systems are now(More)
As sensor networks operate over long periods of deployment in difficult to reach places, their requirements may change or new code may need to be uploaded to them. The current state-of-the-art protocols (Deluge and MNP) for network reprogramming perform the code dissemination in a multihop manner using a three-way handshake where metadata is exchanged prior(More)
Controversy remains as to the scope of advanced planning in language production. Smith and Wheeldon (1999) found significantly longer onset latencies when subjects described moving-picture displays by producing sentences beginning with a complex noun phrase than for matched sentences beginning with a simple noun phrase. While these findings are consistent(More)
This paper presents the structure of a high-selectivity bandpass filter that is fabricated on low-resistivity silicon substrate with a commercial CMOS technology. The filter is constructed using crossed coplanar waveguide (CPW) lines and metal-insulator-metal capacitors to ensure that it has the desired passband characteristics. An adjustable capacitor(More)
In the past decade, the market of wireless mobile communications has been growing at a rapid pace. A future wireless mobile network is desired to support integrated type of services including voice, data, video, and etc. A well-designed multiple access control (MAC) protocol is crucial in supplying satisfactory level of performance such as delay or(More)
