The authors illustrate their personal experience relating to 32 patients, aged between 12 and 74 years, undergoing cochlear implant, in whom vestibular reflexes were evaluated before and after surgery. This series did not include cases of areflexia, but only 1 case of reduced vestibular reflexia consequently to surgery. In this case, owing to the probable(More)
The coordination of devices during the execution of services in AmI systems is of paramount importance. Effective solutions are based on planning techniques and multiagent technologies. Literature focuses on the analysis of the most appropriate planner and leaves open the technological issues. In this paper we show the limitations of the multiagent(More)
1) BCEOE have been obtained in subjects with normal hearing by 1 kHz tone-bursts; 2) the morphology of BCEOE varies from one subject to another, and is stable over the course of time. BCEOE do not display a linear relation between their amplitude and the intensity of the stimulus, whose spectral composition is the same as theirs; 3) by contrast with ACEOE,(More)
BACKGROUND AND AIM We identified a balanced de novo translocation involving chromosomes Xq25 and 8q24 in an eight year-old girl with a non-progressive form of congenital ataxia, cognitive impairment and cerebellar hypoplasia. METHODS AND RESULTS Breakpoint definition showed that the promoter of the Protein Tyrosine Kinase 2 (PTK2, also known as Focal(More)
Network Intrusion Detection Systems (NIDSs) can be composed of a potentially large number of sensors, which monitor the traffic flowing in the network. Deciding <i>where</i> sensors should be placed and <i>what</i> information they need in order to detect the desired attacks can be a demanding task for network administrators, one that should be made as(More)
In recent years, technical progress has created new complex acoustic implants which send an electrical stimulus to the eighth cranial nerve through one or more electrodes inserted through the round window into the scala tympani of the cochlea. The abnormal--mostly osteosclerotic--processes which cause deep hearing loss may prevent electrode insertion.(More)
Following stimulation of one ear with white noise (WN) or 0.5, 1 and 2 kHz tone bursts a statistically valid mean reduction in the amplitude of delayed evoked otoacoustic emissions (DEOE), elicited from the contralateral ear by bursts of the same frequencies, was observed in 10 people (19-23-years-old) with normal hearing. This reduction only appeared in(More)
For the purpose of this study, acoustic signals were generated by an Amplaid MK VI. An Amplaid 702 impedence meter was connected to its averaging section and to its computer. The stimuli were bursts of unfiltered white noise (UWN) and of narrow band white noise (NBWN; 30 db./oct/slope; central frequencies 1,000, 2,000, 4,000 Hz.) lasting 3-1,000 msec., at(More)
