Using the eye-coil/magnetic field method, we measured the torsional vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) in ten subjects during active head rotations in roll at about 0.5 Hz. In the dark, regardless of instructions or mental effort, the gains (eye velocity/head velocity) had a mean value of around 0.61. When they viewed a visual display that was stationary, gains… (More)
We studied the horizontal vestibulo-ocular reflex (VOR) during transient, high-acceleration (1900-7100 degrees/s2) head rotations in 4 human subjects. Such stimuli perturbed the angle of gaze and caused illusory movement of a viewed target (oscillopsia). The disturbance of gaze could be attributed to the latency of the VOR (which ranged from 6-15 ms) and… (More)
High end video applications are still implemented in hardware consisting of many components. Integration of these components on one IC is dicult as they are typically low volume products and often customization is also required, e.g. in studio applications. This is easier on the board level than on an integrated system. Using hardware parameters for… (More)
We studied the ocular motor abnormalities in 4 patients chronically addicted to sniffing glue containing toluene. They showed acquired pendular nystagmus with horizontal and vertical components. One patient also showed saccadic oscillations. The pendular nystagmus may be a manifestation of a disturbance in brainstem-cerebellar connections secondary to the… (More)
This article highlights features of brain anatomy that are important to know in interpreting magnetic resonance images. This article concentrates on the names of some brain stem structures, the three-dimensional appearance of six important tracts, and the location of cranial nerve nuclei.
Many-core chip multiprocessors can be expected to scale to tens of cores and beyond in the near future. Existing and emerging workloads on general-purpose many-core processors typically exhibit fast-changing, unpredictable on-chip communication traffic full of burstiness and jitters between different functional blocks. To provide high sustainable… (More)
We describe an unusual case of digital neuropathy of the thumb due to compression of the median nerve in the distal forearm by an extruded ganglion cyst originating from the radio-scaphoid joint of the wrist. Electrophysiologically, both conduction slowing and block of median motor and sensory axons were present across the cyst. These changes improved after… (More)
