A major challenge for sensory processing in the brain is considering stimulus context, such as stimulus probability, which may be relevant for survival. Excitatory neurons in auditory cortex, for example, adapt to repetitive tones in a stimulus-specific manner without fully generalizing to a low-probability deviant tone ("oddball") that breaks the preceding(More)
This study focused on investigating various existing types of offshore jacket substructures along with a proposed twisted-tripod jacket type (modified jacket (MJ)-structures). The architectures of the three-leg structure, as well as the patented twisted jacket structure motivated the design of the proposed MJ-structures. The dimensions of the structures(More)
Patients with diabetes are at a higher risk of having diabetic foot ulcers (DFUs) or necrotizing fasciitis (NF). The present study aims to examine the clinical characteristics and associated risk factors for lower-extremity amputation (LEA) in patients with DFU complicated by NF.We retrospectively reviewed patients treated at a major diabetic foot center in(More)
This study was aimed at exploring the use of liposomes to deliver aquated cisplatin (ACP), a metabolite of CDDP, with increased potency and toxicity. Three liposomal formulations were compared for delivery of ACP to a multidrug resistant tumor. Three different liposomes (DMPC, DPPC and DSPC as the main lipid components) were loaded with ACP by the thin-film(More)
