A simple, novel, and general method is presented in this paper for approximating the sum of independent or arbitrarily correlated lognormal random variables (RV) by a single lognormal RV. The method is also shown to be applicable for approximating the sum of lognormal-Rice and Suzuki RVs by a single lognormal RV. A sum consisting of a mixture of the above(More)
In this paper, a statistical discrete-time model is proposed for simulating wideband multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) fading channels which are trebly selective due to angle spread, Doppler spread and delay spread. The new discrete-time MIMO channel model includes the combined effects of the transmit filter, physical MIMO multipath channel fading and(More)
Oxidative damage plays a critical role in many diseases of the central nervous system. This study was conducted to determine the molecular mechanisms involved in the putative anti-oxidative effects of curcumin against experimental stroke. Oxygen and glucose deprivation/reoxygenation (OGD/R) was used to mimic ischemic insult in primary cultured cortical(More)
A simple and novel method is presented to approximate by the lognormal distribution the probability density function of the sum of correlated lognormal random variables. The method is also shown to work well for approximating the distribution of the sum of lognormal-Rice or Suzuki random variables by the lognormal distribution. The method is based on(More)
—In this paper, a pilot-assisted minimum mean square error (MMSE) multiuser channel estimation algorithm is proposed for quasi-synchronous code-division multiple-access (CDMA) systems that undergo frequency-selective channel fading. The frequency-selective multiuser fading channel is represented as a symbol-wise time-varying chip-spaced tapped delay line(More)
— The theoretical error performance of double space time transmit diversity (DSTTD) system with optimum combining receiver is analyzed in this paper. By employing both spatial multiplexing and transmit diversity in one system, DSTTD provides practical tradeoff between system spectral efficiency and diversity gain. We derive exact analytical expressions to(More)
Sulfiredoxin-1 (Srxn1), an endogenous antioxidant protein, is involved in keeping the balance of the cell’s oxidation/reduction and can resist oxidative stress. However, the exact antioxidant effects of Srxn1 remain fully unclear. The study aims to examine the effects of Srxn1 on oxidative stress and explore the potential mechanisms in astrocytes with 6(More)
To determine whether sulforaphane (SFN) protects neurons against injury caused by oxygenglucose deprivation/reoxygenation (OGD/R) and, if so, to investigate the possible mechanisms. Primary cultures of neurons were prepared from the cerebral cortex of 1-day-old Sprague-Dawley rats. On days 5–6 in vitro, the neurons were exposed to OGD for 1 h, followed by(More)
