The memory reconsolidation hypothesis suggests that a memory trace becomes labile after retrieval and needs to be reconsolidated before it can be stabilized. However, it is unclear from earlier studies whether the same synapses involved in encoding the memory trace are those that are destabilized and restabilized after the synaptic reactivation that(More)
Perillae fructus (perilla seed) is a traditional medicinal herb used to treat bronchial asthma in Oriental medical clinics. ST36 is one of the most widely used acupuncture points, particularly for immune system regulation. Injection of an herbal extract into an acupuncture point (herbal acupuncture) is a therapeutic technique combining both acupuncture and(More)
Fusarium graminearum is an important plant pathogen that causes head blight of major cereal crops. The fungus produces mycotoxins that are harmful to animal and human. In this study, a systematic analysis of 17 phenotypes of the mutants in 657 Fusarium graminearum genes encoding putative transcription factors (TFs) resulted in a database of over 11,000(More)
—The unpredictable worst-case timing behavior of multicore architectures has been the biggest stumbling block for a widespread use of multicores in hard real-time systems. A great deal of research effort has been devoted to address the issue. Among others, the development of a new multicore architecture has emerged as an attractive solution because it can(More)
—The trend in the semiconductor industry toward multicore processors poses a significant challenge to many suppliers of safety-critical real-time embedded software. Having certified their systems for use on single-core processors, these companies may be forced to migrate their installed base of software onto multicore processors as single-core processors(More)
This study aimed to investigate the anti-inflammatory, anti-arthritic and immuno-regulatory effects of electro-acupuncture (EA) at ST36 on Collagen-induced arthritis (CIA) in mice. Male DBA/1J mice were divided into five groups: Normal, Control, NR (needle retention), EAI and EAII. All mice except those in the normal group were immunized with Collagen II(More)
—Security violations are becoming more common in real-time systems – an area that was considered to be invulnerable in the past – as evidenced by the recent W32.Stuxnet and Duqu worms. A failure to protect such systems from malicious entities could result in significant harm to both humans as well as the environment. The increasing use of multicore(More)
The homothallic ascomycete fungus Gibberella zeae (anamorph: Fusarium graminearum) is a major toxigenic plant pathogen that causes head blight disease on small-grain cereals. The fungus produces the mycotoxins deoxynivalenol (DON) and zearalenone (ZEA) in infected hosts, posing a threat to human and animal health. Despite its agricultural and toxicological(More)
Sensors have been increasingly used for many ubiquitous computing applications such as asset location monitoring, visual surveillance, and human motion tracking. In such applications, it is important to place sensors such that every point of the target area can be sensed by more than one sensor. Especially, many practical applications require 3-coverage for(More)
Hierarchical scheduling of periodic resources has been increasingly applied to a wide variety of real-time systems due to its ability to accommodate various applications on a single system through strong temporal isolation. This leads to the question of how one can optimize over the resource parameters while satisfying the timing requirements of real-time(More)
