Although several affective impairments have been demonstrated to occur following closed-head injury (CHI), deficits of the communicative function of language, particularly sentenial and suprasentential pragmatic aspects, have been suggested, but not demonstrated, to occur. This study compared 31 normals and 31 severely closed-head injured patients matched(More)
It is now known that closed head injury (CHI) impairs interpersonal skills, disturbs and/or blunts mood and compromises emotional discriminativeness. This study tried to test whether sense of humour is also impaired or disturbed following CHI. Subjects were 42 CHI patients and 42 normal controls, matched for age, education and paternal occupation. Humour(More)
Studies of cerebral dominance for posed emotional facial expression using free-viewing of hemicomposites have produced inconclusive findings, and the concordance of facial emotion identification (discrimination) and the expression of the same facial emotion remains unknown. Expressive and discriminative (14 men, 14 women) facial emotion performances of(More)
A novel series of asymmetrically end-capped mesogenic oligothiophenes, with various oligothiophene core lengths, alkoxy tail lengths, and molecular polarities through introducing alkylsulfanyl or alkylsulfonyl functionalities as the terminal group, have been synthesized by palladium-catalyzed Suzuki cross-coupling and Kumada cross-coupling reactions as key(More)
Fast optical interconnects together with an associated light emitter that are both compatible with conventional Si-based complementary metal-oxide-semiconductor (CMOS) integrated circuit technology is an unavoidable requirement for the next-generation microprocessors and computers. Self-assembled Si/Si1−xGex nanostructures (NSs), which can emit light at(More)
The effects of specimen tilt and probe convergence angle on annular dark field (ADF) image contrast of Si(0.8)Ge(0.2) heteroepitaxial strained layers on (100) Si were investigated in a 200 kV scanning transmission electron microscope (STEM) for a TEM specimen thickness of 195 nm. With 0.5 degrees of specimen tilt away from the exact <011> zone-axis(More)
A calibration sample for transmission electron microscopy (TEM) has been developed that performs the three major instrument calibrations for a transmission electron microscope: the image magnification calibration for measurements of images, the camera constant calibration for indexing diffraction patterns, and the image/diffraction pattern rotation(More)
