BACKGROUND Endogenous estrogens play an important role in the overall cardiocirculatory system. However, there are no studies exploring the hormone metabolism and signaling pathway genes together on ischemic stroke, including sulfotransferase family 1E (SULT1E1), catechol-O-methyl-transferase (COMT), and estrogen receptor α (ESR1). METHODS A case-control(More)
ZrO2-based resistive switching memory has attracted much attention according to its possible application in the next-generation nonvolatile memory. The Al/ZrO2/Pt resistive switching memory with bipolar resistive switching behavior is revealed in this work. The thickness of the ZrO2 film is only 20 nm. The device yield improved by the non-lattice oxygen(More)
Embedded Java and NAND flash memories play important roles in mobile devices. In this paper, we proposed a systematic method to optimize embedded Java virtual machines executed in NAND flash memories (XIP) with limited RAM buffer. Our approach is efficient in reducing cache misses generated by the virtual machine. The experimental simulation showed the(More)
Previous studies suggest that an association between restless legs syndrome (RLS) and migraine exists. However, population-based data are unavailable in Asian cohorts. Our study thus aims to evaluate the association between migraine and RLS in a nationwide, population-based cohort in Taiwan and to examine the effects of age, sex, migraine subtype, and(More)
BACKGROUND The aim of this study was to assess the clinical implications of reversed ophthalmic artery flow (ROAF) for stroke risk and outcomes in subjects with unilateral severe cervical carotid stenosis/occlusion. METHODS We investigated 128 subjects (101 with acute stroke and 27 without), selected from a large hospital patients base (n  =  14,701),(More)
Osmotic demyelination syndrome can result from the rapid correction of hyponatremia, and is categorized by central pontine myelinolysis and extrapontine myelinolysis (EPM). Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is currently the most useful modality for visualizing EPM lesions. However, MRI is unable to delineate the severity of involvement in the nigrostriatal(More)
BACKGROUND Restless legs syndrome (RLS) is a neurological sensory motor disorder of which pathophysiology remains sketchy. The present study was aimed to determine the diagnostic accuracy and potential of SPECT-TRODAT imaging in discriminating patients with RLS from normal individuals. PATIENTS AND METHODS A total of 34 subjects, 22 diagnosed with RLS and(More)
In recent years, graphene studies have increased rapidly. Graphene oxide, which is an intermediate product to form graphene, is insulating, and it should be thermally reduced to be electrically conductive. We herein describe an attempt to make use of the insulating properties of graphene oxide. The graphene oxide layers are deposited onto Si substrates, and(More)
