The purpose of this study is to assess the possibility of implementing an online advertising strategy using a well-known third-party privacy seal located on the order page of an unfamiliar online retailer. An online experiment was conducted with 223 participants using a 2 (third-party seal: present vs. absent) × 2 (purchase-decision involvement: low vs.… (More)
(SNR) region, and the performance can be further improved as more antennas are implemented in transmitter or receiver.
Consumers' affective responses ro and cognitive structures in thinking about a product, and the influence of these processes on the trial experience evaluation, are examined in experiments where product types (hedonic and functional) and involvements (low and high) are simultaneously manipulated. The results show that affective response overrode cognitive… (More)
As the memory density and capacity grows, it is more likely that the number of defects increases. For this reason, in order to improve memory yield, repair analysis is widely used. Built-in redundancy analysis (BIRA) is regarded as one of the solutions to improve memory yield. However, the previous BIRA approaches require large hardware overhead to achieve… (More)
The purpose of this study was to investigate the efficacy of a composite surgical mesh for delivery of mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) in tendon repair. The MSC-loaded mesh composed of a piece of conventional surgical mesh and a layer of scaffold, which supported MSC-embedded alginate gel. A 3-mm defect was surgically created at the Achilles… (More)
show that the position accuracy of the proposed method will be better than using WCL.
Although many studies have examined the roles of hypoxia and transforming growth factor- (TGF-) β separately in the tumor microenvironment, the effects of simultaneous treatment with hypoxia/reoxygenation and TGF-β on tumor malignancy are unclear. Here, we investigated the effects of redox signaling and oncogenes on cell proliferation and radioresistance in… (More)
BACKGROUND This study was designed to compare the quality assurance (QA) results of four dosimetric tools used for intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and to suggest universal criteria for the passing rate in QA, irrespective of the dosimetric tool used. MATERIALS AND METHODS Thirty fields of IMRT plans from five patients were selected, followed… (More)
It is important to test the memory and repair faults for improving the memory yield. Many redundancy analysis (RA) algorithms have been developed to repair the memory faults. However, it is difficult to achieve high repair rate and fast analysis speed. The previsous RA algorithms do not achieve both high repair rate and fast analysis speed. To overcome this… (More)
