Mice carrying mutant amyloid-β precursor protein and presenilin-1 genes (APP/PS1 double transgenic mice) have frequently been used in studies of Alzheimer's disease; however, such studies have focused mainly on hippocampal and cortical changes. The severity of Alzheimer's disease is known to correlate with the amount of amyloid-β protein deposition and the(More)
An ethylene-air laminar diffusion flame successfully provided silicon substrates of anodic aluminum oxide (AAO) template with vertically oriented well-aligned carbon nanotubes. Field emission scanning electron microscopy (SEM) showed that open-tipped carbon nanotubes consisting of tube elements with the same length and diameter uniformly coated the(More)
Aligned, open-tipped carbon nanotube arrays of high density and uniformity were synthesized via a flame method on silicon substrates using a nanoporous template of anodized aluminum oxide from which the nanotubes were grown. The diameter and length of the nanotubes are controlled by the geometry of the aluminum oxide template. These results show the(More)
A stainless steel grid baked by a propane±air premixed ¯ame had iron, chromium and nickel oxide deposits on the grid surface. With this grid, entangled and curved shape multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWNTs) were harvested from an ethylene±air di€usion ¯ame with yield rate of 3 mg/min. Nitrogen addition to the ¯ame was found to straighten the entangled tubes(More)
Multiple-Instance Learning (MIL) has attracted much attention of the machine learning community in recent years and many real-world applications have been successfully formulated as MIL problems. Over the past few years, several Instance Selection-based MIL (ISMIL) algorithms have been presented by using the concept of the embedding space. Although they(More)
