To explore the effects of white matter in the absence of auditory input in the early deaf, we conducted a tract-based statistical analysis of the diffusion tensor anisotropy and the voxel-based morphometry in the white matter of 13 early deaf and 29 hearing individuals. Deaf individuals showed significant decreases in diffusion anisotropy and in regional(More)

This study examined the characteristics of the knowledge discovery and data mining algorithms to demonstrate how they can be used to predict health outcomes and provide policy information for hypertension management using the Korea Medical Insurance Corporation database. Specifically, this study validated the predictive power of data mining algorithms by(More)
–For applications of embedded systems, several processors are scheduled on a processor because very limited applications are used. Recently application areas are broadened and used to be like personal computers. Operating systems are considered one of critical factors to develop embedded systems. Linux is becoming one of popular operating systems for(More)
We investigated the effects of a novel Na(+)/H(+) exchanger-1 (NHE-1) inhibitor KR-33028 on glutamate excitotoxicity in cultured neuron cells in vitro and cerebral infarct in vivo by comparing its potency with that of zoniporide, a well-known, highly potent NHE-1 inhibitor. KR-33028 inhibited NHE-1 activation in a concentration-dependent manner (IC(50)=2.2(More)
Water bodies are essential to humans and other forms of life. Identification of water bodies can be useful in various ways, including estimation of water availability, demarcation of flooded regions, change detection, and so on. In past decades, Landsat satellite sensors have been used for land use classification and water body identification. Due to the(More)
One of key goals of disaster response and relief robots is to acquire knowledge about the situation that would be either dangerous or inaccessible to human operator. However, the robot is difficult to acquire tele-operations from the operator. A disconnected communication link and no-visual control situation are frequently happened in disaster areas.(More)
This paper is concerned with the synchronization problem for complex dynamical networks with time-varying coupling delay and sampled-data. The sampling period considered here is assumed to be time-varying but bounded. A novel exponential synchronization condition is established based on the Gronwall's inequality, and an explicit expression for a set of(More)
