A search for the relic neutrinos from all past core-collapse supernovae was conducted using 1496 days of data from the Super-Kamiokande detector. This analysis looked for electron-type anti-neutrinos that had produced a positron with an energy greater than 18 MeV. In the absence of a signal, 90% C.L. upper limits on the total flux were set for several(More)
Antiepileptic drugs (AEDs) can affect bone metabolism, but the exact mechanisms or differences in individual drugs are still unknown. The purpose of this study was to prospectively investigate the alterations in bone mineral density (BMD) and markers of bone metabolism induced by different AEDs in Koreans with epilepsy. Subjects included 33 drug-naïve,(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE The availability and promise of effective treatments for neurodegenerative disorders are increasing the importance of early diagnosis. Having molecular and biochemical markers of Alzheimer's disease (AD) would complement clinical approaches, and further the goals of early and accurate diagnosis. Combining multiple biomarkers in(More)
Cortical physiology in human motor cortex is influenced by behavioral motor training (MT) as well as repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation protocol such as intermittent theta burst stimulation (iTBS). This study aimed to test whether MT and iTBS can interact with each other to produce additive changes in motor cortical physiology. We hypothesized(More)
—This paper introduces a novel fingerprint matching algorithm using both ridge features and the conventional minu-tiae feature to increase the recognition performance against non-linear deformation in fingerprints. The proposed ridge features are composed of four elements: ridge count, ridge length, ridge curvature direction, and ridge type. These ridge(More)
