BACKGROUND/AIM This study aimed to identify the functional neuroanatomical correlates of impaired clock drawing test (CDT) performance in patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD). METHOD The CDT was administered to 71 patients with AD, and regional cerebral glucose metabolism (rCMglc) was measured by positron emission tomography (PET). Correlations between(More)
OBJECTIVE This study aimed to investigate the regional cerebral dysfunction associated with depressive syndrome in patients with Alzheimer disease (AD). METHOD Twelve patients with AD with depressive syndrome (ADD) and 12 age-, gender-, and severity-matched patients with AD without depressive syndrome (ADND) underwent FDG-PET scanning. The regional(More)
Raman spectra were measured for mono-, bi-, and trilayer graphene grown on SiC by solid state graphitization, whereby the number of layers was preassigned by angle-resolved ultraviolet photoemission spectroscopy. It was found that the only unambiguous fingerprint in Raman spectroscopy to identify the number of layers for graphene on SiC(0001) is the line(More)
Transport measurements normally provide a macroscopic, averaged view of the sample so that disorder prevents the observation of fragile interaction-induced states. Here, we demonstrate that transconductance fluctuations in a graphene field effect transistor reflect charge localization phenomena on the nanometer scale due to the formation of a dot network(More)
Chemical post-treatment of the carbon nanotube fiber (CNTF) was carried out via intramolecular cross-dehydrogenative coupling (ICDC) with FeCl3 at room temperature. The Raman intensity ratio of the G band to the D band (IG/ID ratio) of CNT fiber increased from 2.3 to 4.6 after ICDC reaction. From the XPS measurements, the AC═C/AC-C ratio of the CNT fiber(More)
In recent years, several linearized model approaches for fast and reliable parametric neuroreceptor mapping based on dynamic nuclear imaging have been developed from the simplified reference tissue model (SRTM) equation. All the methods share the basic SRTM assumptions, but use different schemes to alleviate the effect of noise in dynamic-image voxels.(More)
Flexible organic memory devices are one of the integral components for future flexible organic electronics. However, high-density all-organic memory cell arrays on malleable substrates without cross-talk have not been demonstrated because of difficulties in their fabrication and relatively poor performances to date. Here we demonstrate the first flexible(More)
We address the quantum Hall behavior in twisted bilayer graphene transferred from the C face of SiC. The measured Hall conductivity exhibits the same plateau values as for a commensurate Bernal bilayer. This implies that the eightfold degeneracy of the zero energy mode is topologically protected despite rotational disorder as recently predicted. In(More)
Coherent motion of electrons in Bloch states is one of the fundamental concepts of charge conduction in solid-state physics. In layered materials, however, such a condition often breaks down for the interlayer conduction, when the interlayer coupling is significantly reduced by, e.g., a large interlayer separation. We report that complete suppression of(More)
Large-area single crystal monolayer graphene is synthesized on Ni(111) thin films, which have flat terraces and no grain boundaries. The flat single-crystal Ni films are heteroepitaxially grown on MgO(111) substrates using a buffer layer technique. Low-energy electron diffraction and various spectroscopic methods reveal the long-range single crystallinity(More)
