— Since the tree based RFID tag anti-collision protocol achieves 100% read rate, and the slotted ALOHA based tag anti-collision protocol allows simple implementation and good performance in small amount of tags, we consider how to take the advantages of each algorithm. This paper presents query tree based reservation for efficient RFID tag anti-collision.(More)
— Efficient, scalable and robust multicasting support from the MAC layer is needed for meeting the demands of multicast based applications over WiFi and mesh networks. However, the IEEE 802.11 protocol has no specific mechanism for multicasting. It implements multicasting using broadcasting at the base transmission rate. We identify two fundamental reasons(More)
Parallel MRI (pMRI) and compressed sensing MRI (CS-MRI) have been considered as two distinct reconstruction problems. Inspired by recent k-space interpolation methods, an annihilating filter-based low-rank Hankel matrix approach is proposed as a general framework for sparsity-driven k-space interpolation method which unifies pMRI and CS-MRI. Specifically,(More)
— RFID is a generic term for technologies which use RF waves to identify, track, or categorize any object. One of the research areas in RFID systems is a tag anti-collision protocol; how to reduce identification time with a given number of tags in the field of an RFID reader. There are two types of tag anti-collision protocols for RFID systems: tree based(More)
Support for efficient multicasting in WLANs can enable new services such as streaming TV channels, radio channels, and visitor's information. With increasing deployments of large-scale WLANs, such services can have a significant impact. However, for a solution to be viable, the mutlicast services must minimally impact the existing unicast services which are(More)
For high frequency on-chip communication architecture design, we propose cascaded bus matrix-based solutions. Due to the huge design space in cascaded bus matrix design, it is crucial to perform an efficient design space exploration. In our work, we present a simulated annealing-based design space exploration method. For an efficient representation of bus(More)
Glutamate excitotoxicity-induced oxidative stress have been linked to mitochondrial dysfunction in retinal ischemia and optic neuropathies including glaucoma. Brimonindine (BMD), an alpha 2-adrenergic receptor agonist, contributes to the neuroprotection of retinal ganglion cells (RGCs) against glutamate excitotoxicity or oxidative stress. However, the(More)

The external validity of a noninvasive language mapping protocol with magnetoencephalography (MEG) has been established through direct comparisons with invasive functional mapping techniques. This study examines the test-retest and interrater reliability of this protocol under realistic testing conditions in 21 epilepsy surgery candidates. Brain activation(More)
