We examined the association between the Catechol-O-methyltransferase (COMT) Val158Met polymorphism and aggressive schizophrenia. The sample included 61 aggressive schizophrenic patients as well as 104 non-aggressive patients from psychiatric hospitals and 415 healthy volunteers in South Korea. In the case-control comparisons, there was no significant(More)
—This paper proposes a reliable wildfire monitoring system based on a wireless sensor network (WSN) sparsely deployed in adverse conditions. The physical environment under consideration is characterized by asymmetric, irregular, and unreliable wireless links, inadequate Fresnel zone clearance, and routing problems, to name a few. We use reliable(More)
Compressive sensing (CS) with sparse random matrix for the random sensing basis reduces source coding complexity of sensing devices. We propose a downsampling scheme to this framework in order to further reduce the complexity and improve coding efficiency simultaneously. As a result, our scheme can deliver significant gains to a wide variety of(More)
