High-fat diet (HFD)-induced obesity is associated with insulin resistance, which may affect brain synaptic plasticity through impairment of insulin-sensitive processes underlying neuronal survival, learning, and memory. The experimental model consisted of 3 month-old C57BL/6J mice fed either a normal chow diet (control group) or a HFD (60% of calorie from(More)
The high energy demand of the brain renders it sensitive to changes in energy fuel supply and mitochondrial function. Deficits in glucose availability and mitochondrial function are well-known hallmarks of brain aging and are particularly accentuated in neurodegenerative disorders such as Alzheimer's disease. As important cellular sources of H2O2,(More)
This paper investigates vulnerability of the dorsal hand-vein biometric systems to display based presentation attacks. The database collected for our experiments consists of624 real and 312 spoof images from left and right hands of 52 subjects, of which 32 are males and 20 are females. In order to assess the vulnerability of the system, we have created(More)
