The aim of the present review is to discuss the evidence supporting the hypothesis that inflammation and neurogenesis play an important role in temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) and to examine whether possible strategies that involve the pharmacological manipulation of inflammation/neurogenesis can lead to the development of novel approaches for the treatment of(More)
Virtual Histology (VH) is a new medical imaging technique that allows the assessment of atherosclerotic plaque composition, a potential useful tool for the evaluation of individuals with coronary disease. Empirical observation has suggested that plaque areas adjacent to dense calcium (DC) are frequently coded as necrotic core (NC) in VH images. The main(More)
In-vivo atherosclerotic plaque composition has been currently assessed by means of techniques based on spectral analysis of backscattered intravascular ultrasonic signals. Conversely, conventional IVUS images are based only on amplitude envelope of ultrasonic signals, discarding some frequency information and, consequently, disabling tissue characterization(More)
This paper analyses a strategy for ischemia detection based on wavelet decomposition of the ST segment. The wavelet transform is used as a pre-processing tool for linear discriminant classifier. In order to minimize generalization problems caused by correlations between the classification variables, a selection algorithm is employed to choose a subset of(More)
We report the results of time-integrated and time-resolved photoluminescence spectroscopy on red-emitting self-organized InAs/Al 0.6 Ga 0.4 As quantum dots with indirect barriers. Spatially resolved PL measurements confirm that carriers excited in the Al 0.6 Ga 0.4 As barriers are consistent with a carrier hopping process between dots, a result also(More)
We have investigated the quantum dot (QD) carrier capture mechanism using continuous wave photoluminescence as a function of the optical excitation intensity using a sample with a QD density gradient across its surface ranging from 0 to 1.8 £ 10 11 cm 22. Modelling of the carrier kinetics has been described by a set of three coupled rate equations(More)
