OBJECTIVE To examine whether neonatal exposure to sevoflurane induces autism-like behaviors in mice. BACKGROUND There are continuing reports regarding the potential negative effects of anesthesia on the developing brain. Recently, several studies suggest that neurotoxicity caused by anesthesia may lead to neurodevelopmental impairments. However, unlike(More)
Incremental checkpointing, which is intended to minimize checkpointing overhead, saves only the modified pages of a process. This means that in incremental checkpointing, the time consumed for checkpointing varies according to the amount of modified pages. Thus, an efficient interval of checkpointing have to be determined on run-time of a process. In this(More)
In most file systems, if a file is deleted, only the metadata of the file is deleted or modified and the file's data is still stored on the physical media. Some users require that deleted files no longer be accessible. This requirement is more important in embedded systems that employ flash memory as a storage medium. In this paper, we have designed a NAND(More)
Incremental checkpointing, which is intended to minimize checkpointing overhead, saves only the modified pages of a process. However, the cumulative size of incremental checkpoints increases at a steady rate over time because many updated values may be saved for the same page. In this paper, we present a comprehensive overview of <i>Pickpt</i>, which is a(More)
Docosahexaenoic acid (DHA) induces autophagy-associated apoptotic cell death in wild-type p53 cancer cells via regulation of p53. The present study investigated the effects of DHA on PC3 and DU145 prostate cancer cell lines harboring mutant p53. Results show that, in addition to apoptosis, DHA increased the expression levels of lipidated form LC3B and(More)
Incremental checkpointing, which is intended to minimize checkpointing overhead, saves only the modified pages of a process. This means that in incremental checkpoint-ing, the time consumed for checkpointing varies according to the amount of modified pages. Thus, efficient intervals of checkpointing have to be determined on run-time of a process. In this(More)
Secure deletion for flash file systems is essential for enhancing the security of embedded systems. Due to the characteristics of flash memory, existing secure deletion schemes cannot be directly adapted to flash file systems. In this paper, we propose an efficient secure deletion scheme for flash file systems. It encrypts a file's data and stores all keys(More)
