OBJECTIVES Poor sleep diminishes mental and physical health. The objective of this study was to examine associations between sleep disturbance and interleukin-6 (IL-6) responses to acute mental stress in older adults. DESIGN Observational study of community-dwelling, healthy older adults. SETTING Participants completed the study in a clinical research(More)
In situ Ga-doped ZnO nanotips were grown on amorphous fused silica substrates using metalorganic chemical vapor deposition. Structural, optical, and electrical properties of as-grown ZnO nanotips are investigated. Despite the amorphous nature of fused silica substrates, Ga-doped ZnO nanotips are found to be single crystalline and oriented along the c-axis.(More)
Research supports the construct validity of the Relationship Profile Test (RPT; Bornstein & Languirand, 2003), a 30-item, self-report measure of destructive overdependence (DO), dysfunctional detachment (DD), and healthy dependency. In this investigation, we assessed the relationships of gender, gender role, and gender role stereotype ratings to RPT(More)
Solid polymer electrolyte (SPE) composed of semi-crystalline poly (vinylidene fluoride-hexafluoropropylene) [P(VdF-HFP)] copolymer, 1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium bis (trifluoromethyl sulphonyl) imide [EMI-BTI] and graphene oxide (GO) was prepared and its performance evaluated. The effects of GO nano-filler were investigated in terms of enhancement in ionic(More)

We describe a method of using a network of thermopile sensors distributed along the walls of a room to locate a person within the room. At any given time, a person would be in the view of at least one of the sensor nodes. An algorithm is used to calculate the distance of a person from each sensor node based on its temperature reading and locate the person(More)
We present the rationale, architecture, and implementation of an intelligent room, built upon a dense radio-based network of diverse electronic sensors, and interfaced with a cluster of dedicated computers. This room (an "iRoom") is capable of high-order tasks in event detection, analysis, processing, deduction, and inference. Initial focus has been to(More)
Four experiments tested a key tenet of Bornstein's (1992, 1993) cognitive/interactionist (C/I) model of interpersonal dependency: that priming the helpless self-schema (HSS) alters processing of dependency-related information in dependent--but not nondependent--individuals. Experiments 1 and 2 assessed the effects of subliminal lexical priming and an(More)
