Cortical excitability of the primary motor cortex is altered in patients with Parkinson's disease (PD). Therefore, modulation of cortical excitability by high frequency repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) of the motor cortex might result in beneficial effects on motor functions in PD. The present study aims to evaluate the effect of rTMS of(More)
PURPOSE Imaging using reduced FOV excitation allows higher resolution or signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) per scan time but often requires long radiofrequency pulses. The goal of this study was to improve a recent reduced field of view (FOV) method that uses a second-order shim gradient to decrease pulse length and evaluate its use in functional MRI (fMRI)(More)
—Text detection and classiï¿¿cation in natural images is important for many computer vision applications. Here, to detect text, we ï¿¿nd connected components based on consistency in stroke width, chain them based on their relative spatial positions, and use a text classiï¿¿cation engine to ï¿¿lter chains with low clas-siï¿¿cation conï¿¿dence scores.
