Analyzing syllable stress in spoken English has been an area of research for a long time. In this paper, we analyze the performance of a novel method for evaluating syllable stress in spoken English. Specifically, we study the problem of determining if a word is spoken with the correct syllable stress pattern. The proposed method uses generalized models for(More)
PURPOSE The effect of different implant impression techniques on the accuracy of casts has been investigated mostly in vitro, and clinically relevant evidence is scarce. The purpose of this study was to investigate the effect of implant impression techniques--specifically, splinted versus nonsplinted--on the accuracy of fit of fixed implant prostheses in(More)
BACKGROUND The accuracy of implant casts generated with various impression techniques was mainly investigated in vitro resulting in limited clinical data. PURPOSE (1) To compare the three-dimensional (3-D) accuracy of splinted and non-splinted impression techniques to the control casts (verification jigs) that had been used for actual patient treatment;(More)
Moderate pyridoxine deficiency in adult male Sprague-Dawley rats results in significant hypertension, associated with a general sympathetic stimulation, including an increase in the turnover of norepinephrine in the heart. Treatment of these rats with pyridoxine reversed blood pressure to normal within 24 h. Treatment of pyridoxine-deficient rats with(More)
The possible role of endogenous opiates in the regulation of food intake was investigated by studying their influence on body weight of rat pups. Subcutaneous injection of the opiate antagonist Mr 1452 to non-deprived 1 day old rats (1-4 mg/kg) and 1.5 hr deprived 5 day old rats (2-8 mg/kg) inhibited feeding. Its stereoisomer Mr 1453 increased intake when(More)
