We present RayCore, a mobile ray-tracing hardware architecture. RayCore facilitates high-quality rendering effects, such as reflection, refraction, and shadows, on mobile devices by performing real-time Whitted ray tracing. RayCore consists of two major components: ray-tracing units (RTUs) based on a unified traversal and intersection pipeline and a(More)
A prospective study of 36 consecutive patients with congenital arachnoid cysts treated endoscopically is reported. There were 15 female and 21 male patients. The mean age at the time of diagnosis was 12.3 years (10 days to 38 years). Arachnoid cysts were located in the suprasellar region in 16 patients, the sylvian fissure in 11, the quadrigeminal cistern(More)
The objective of this study is to establish which treatment is the best operative intervention for arachnoid cyst. We reviewed a series of 209 cases with arachnoid cysts focusing on the effectiveness and safety. The cysts were treated with several surgical procedures including open surgery for fenestration, endoscopic fenestration, or cystoperitoneal(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate the role of resective pediatric epilepsy surgery for Lennox-Gastaut syndrome (LGS). METHODS We analyzed clinical data of 27 children and adolescents who had LGS and underwent resective epilepsy surgery despite abundant (>30% of preoperative interictal and/or ictal epileptiform discharges) generalized(More)
PURPOSE The purpose of this study is to determine the sensibility of each imaging tool in identifying focal cortical dysplasia (FCD) in children and adolescents with epilepsy and to define the prognostic factors of pediatric and adolescent epilepsy surgery. METHODS We identified 48 children with FCD who underwent resective surgery and analyzed their(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate causes contributing to surgical resectability and seizure outcomes depending on various clinical and surgical factors. PATIENTS AND METHODS The records of 44 patients with gangliogliomas surgically treated between April 1986 and March 2007, were retrospectively reviewed to assess(More)
The authors retrospectively analyzed 107 patients with primary intracranial germ cell tumor (GCT), who were treated at the Department of Neurosurgery, Yonsei Medical Center between January 1986 and January 1996. The incidence of GCT was 2.8% in pediatric patients with intracranial tumor. Of the 107 tumors, 60 were located in the pineal region, 30 in the(More)
Sphingosine-1-phosphate (S1P) has emerged as a bioactive lipid modulator that mediates a variety of cell functions. However, the effects of S1P on melanogenesis are not well known. Therefore, we investigated the actions of S1P on melanin synthesis using a spontaneously immortalized mouse melanocyte cell line, Mel-Ab. This study shows that S1P significantly(More)
Transforming growth factor-beta1 (TGF-beta1) plays a pivotal role in cell proliferation, differentiation, and apoptosis. In this study, we investigated the effects of TGF-beta1 on melanogenesis using a spontaneously immortalized mouse melanocyte cell line, Mel-Ab. Our results show that TGF-beta1 significantly inhibits melanin synthesis in a(More)
Focal cortical dysplasia type II (FCDII) is a sporadic developmental malformation of the cerebral cortex characterized by dysmorphic neurons, dyslamination and medically refractory epilepsy. It has been hypothesized that FCD is caused by somatic mutations in affected regions. Here, we used deep whole-exome sequencing (read depth, 412–668×) validated by(More)
