In this paper, we define multicast for an ad hoc network through nodes' mobility as MotionCast and study the delay and capacity tradeoffs for it. Assuming nodes move according to an independently and identically distributed (i.i.d.) pattern and each desires to send packets to <i>k</i> distinctive destinations, we compare the delay and capacity in two(More)
Adversity, particularly in early life, can cause illness. Clues to the responsible mechanisms may lie with the discovery of molecular signatures of stress, some of which include alterations to an individual's somatic genome. Here, using genome sequences from 11,670 women, we observed a highly significant association between a stress-related disease, major(More)
Previous studies suggested that the topological properties of brain anatomical networks may be aberrant in schizophrenia (SCZ), and most of them focused on the chronic and antipsychotic-medicated SCZ patients which may introduce various confounding factors due to antipsychotic medication and duration of illness. To avoid those potential confounders, a(More)
Since wireless channel is vulnerable to eavesdroppers, the secrecy during message delivery is a major concern in many applications such as commercial, governmental, and military networks. This paper investigates information-theoretic secrecy in large-scale networks and studies how capacity is affected by the secrecy constraint where the locations and(More)
Altered brain connectivity has been widely considered as a genetic risk mechanism for schizophrenia. Of the many susceptibility genes identified so far, ZNF804A (rs1344706) is the first common genetic variant associated with schizophrenia on a genome-wide level. Previous fMRI studies have found that carriers of rs1344706 exhibit altered functional(More)
To compare the difference in body mass index (BMI), waist-to-hip ratio (WHR), and glucose and lipid metabolism parameters between drug-naïve, first-episode schizophrenia patients and healthy controls matched for age, ethnicity and gender, we conducted a test including BMI, WHR, and fasting glucose and lipid metabolism parameters in both 70 drug-naïve,(More)
BACKGROUND The Mood Disorder Questionnaire (MDQ) is a well-recognized screening tool for bipolar disorder, but its Chinese version needs further validation. This study aims to measure the accuracy of the Chinese version of the MDQ as a screening instrument for bipolar disorder (BPD) in a group of patients with a current major depressive episode. METHODS(More)
—Caching plays an important role in reducing the backbone traffic when serving high-volume multimedia content. Recently, a new class of coded caching schemes have received significant interest because they can exploit coded multi-cast opportunities to further reduce backbone traffic. Without considering file popularity, prior works have characterized the(More)
—Coded caching can exploit new multicast opportunities even when multiple users request different pieces of content, and thus can significantly reduce the backhaul requirement for serving high-volume content. However, existing studies of coded caching have been limited to the scenarios where all files of interest are of a common size. This work studies the(More)
We previously demonstrated that tryptophan hydroxylase (TPH), the rate-limiting enzyme of serotonin (5-HT) synthesis, was commonly present in the brains of some insects. The current study was aimed at determining the number of serotonergic neurons in the brain and suboesophageal ganglion of adult Drosophila melanogaster and to investigate further the(More)
