We present a novel texture compression system for improved image quality. Building on the iPACKMAN/ETC method, bit combinations that are invalid in that system are used to allow for three additional decompression modes without increasing the bit rate. These modes increase quality, especially for color edges and blocks with smoothly varying content. Due to(More)
The perceived quality of a multimedia stream can be estimated with good accuracy with a parametric no-reference opinion model taking codec, total coded bitrate, packet loss rate, and buffering events as input. A rebuffering event in a multimedia stream severely reduces the perceived quality with up to 1.5 MOS units for a QCIF video. High packet loss rates(More)
Reducing the generation of amyloid-β (Aβ) in the brain via inhibition of β-secretase or inhibition/modulation of γ-secretase has been pursued as a potential disease-modifying treatment for Alzheimer's disease. For the discovery and development of β-secretase inhibitors (BACEi), γ-secretase inhibitors (GSI), and γ-secretase modulators (GSM), Aβ in(More)
GRP is a pancreatic neuropeptide and may be of importance for the neural control of insulin and glucagon secretion. In this study, we investigated the effects of GRP on basal and stimulated insulin and glucagon secretion in the mouse. Intravenous injections of GRP at dose levels exceeding 2.12 nmol/kg were found to rapidly increase basal plasma levels of(More)
Immunoreactive calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) has been shown to occur in intrapancreatic nerves and islet somatostatin cells in the rat. Therefore, we investigated the effects of CGRP on insulin and glucagon secretion in the rat. CGRP was infused i.v. at one of 3 dose levels (4.3, 17 or 68 pmol/min). Infusion of CGRP alone was found to elevate basal(More)
In recent years, 3D camera products and prototypes based on Integral imaging (II) technique have gradually emerged and gained broad attention. II is a method that spatially samples the natural light (light field) of a scene, usually using a microlens array or a camera array and records the light field using a high resolution 2D image sensor. The large(More)
The concise, enantioselective total syntheses of (-)-citrinadin A and (+)-citrinadin B in a total of only 20 and 21 steps, respectively, from commercially available starting materials are described. Our strategy, which minimizes refunctionalization and protection/deprotection operations, features the highly diastereoselective, vinylogous Mannich addition of(More)
