Depression of the mandible in the decerebrate cat induced retraction of the tongue. The mechanism of this jaw-tongue reflex was analyzed by recording electromyographic activity from the temporal and styloglossal muscles as representative masticatory and extrinsic tongue muscles, respectively. Tongue muscle activity was elicited when the mouth was opened(More)
Xeroderma pigmentosum is an unusual neurocutaneous disorder. Recent studies have classified patients with xeroderma pigmentosum into 10 groups by somatic cell hybridization methods. In this report we describe 32 patients with Group A xeroderma pigmentosum, including 1 patient with an atypical case, who were assessed for neurological complications. Of these(More)
In trials on normal subjects and patients with Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD), interdental dimension discrimination (IDD) was tested by assessing the ability of subjects to discriminate between pairs of sticks of different dimensions held between the upper and lower teeth. The IDD ability of the DMD patients was significantly inferior to that of the(More)
Text occlusion is among the most intractable obstacles for OCR engines. A typical example in document images is visible watermark characters, which are often occluded by foreground contents. This paper proposes a solution by restoring watermark characters before recognition. The text restoration process consists a core module as patch-based restoration(More)

We report emission from a bismuth doped chalcogenide glass which is flattened, has a full width at half maximum (FWHM) of 600 nm, peaks at 1300 nm and covers the entire telecommunications window. At cryogenic temperatures the FWHM reaches 850 nm. The quantum efficiency and lifetime were as high as 32% and 175 µs, respectively. We also report two new bismuth(More)
