An interesting new application domain for handheld devices may be represented by Ambient Intelligence (AmI), where they can be used as intermediaries between us and our surrounding environment. Thus, the devices, which always accompany us, will behave as electronic butlers who assist us in our daily tasks, by interacting with the smart objects (everyday(More)
BACKGROUND Focal thalamic lesions have been associated with a variety of involuntary movements such as tremor, dystonia, and chorea-ballism. METHODS We describe a patient with severe hyperkinesias of the right arm secondary to a thalamic infarction in the left postero-ventral region of the thalamus. RESULTS The dystonia and tremor of the right upper(More)
Ultraviolet photodissociation of SH (X 2Pi, upsilon"=2-7) and SD (X 2Pi, upsilon"=3-7) has been studied at 288 and 291 nm, using the velocity map imaging technique to probe the angular and speed distributions of the S(1D2) products. Photodissociation cross sections for the A 2Sigma+<--X 2Pi(upsilon") and 2Delta<--X 2Pi(upsilon") transitions have been(More)
Transforaminal pelvic fractures are high-energy injuries that are translationally and rotationally unstable. This study compared the biomechanical stability of triangular osteosynthesis vs 2-transsacral-screw fixation in the repair of a transforaminal pelvic fracture model. A transforaminal fracture model was created in 10 cadaveric lumbopelvic specimens.(More)
Epilepsy is a recurrent, often progressive neurological disorder with a chronic evolution, affecting 1 to 2 % of the world population. Research with experimental models and imaging analysis of diseased patients have been used to show that recurrent episodes produce oxidative stress, most of which is related to neuronal excitability phenomena. It is known(More)
OBJECTIVE Our objectives were to study the length of multi-unit recordings (MURs) of brain activity in 20 years of movement disorder neurosurgeries and to determine the number of times in which it was necessary for the teams using single-unit recording (SUR) to explore all the electrode tracks in the simultaneously recorded sites (SRS). MATERIAL AND(More)
