We measured the levels of some biological metals: copper (Cu), iron (Fe), magnesium (Mg), manganese (Mn), and zinc (Zn) in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) in patients with neurodegenerative diseases (52 patients with amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)), 21 patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD), and 20 patients with Parkinson's disease (PD) by inductively(More)
We analyzed the expression of MTs using immunohistochemistry on the spinal cords of patients with ALS (n =12) and controls (n =12). The immunoreactivities of both MT-1/2 and MT-3 stained dominantly in glial cells and were decreased in the spinal cords of patients with ALS, particularly in patients on respirators. The immunoreactivity of MT-1/2 in the ALS(More)
A fundamental study was focused on the investigation of wireless power transmission by near-fi eld coupling from the view point of the antennas. Two types of antennas – dipole and loop antennas – were used as the transmitting antenna and the receiving antenna for electrical near-fi eld coupling and for magnetic near-fi eld coupling, respectively. The(More)
Patients with major depressive disorder (MDD) are known to present with cognitive deficits; however, the presence of these deficits in the remitted state have been inconsistent. One of the most important factors potentially contributing to inconsistencies between studies may be the influence of medications. To explore the influence of antidepressants on(More)
environment introduced in a university computing laboratory provides an access to otherwise unused computing resources. The grid computing of the neural network model not only processes several times faster than a single iterative process but also provides chances of improving forecasting accuracy. Results of numerical tests using the real market data by(More)
The remarkable calcification of the basal ganglia and cerebellum has been traditionally called Fahr’s disease, but this nomenclature is criticized for including heterogeneous diseases. To determine the pattern of some biological metals in the hair of patients with Fahr’s disease, we investigated the levels of 24 bioelements in the hair of 28 patients (17(More)
