This article presents three studies that investigate when syntactic constraints become available during the processing of long-distance backwards pronominal dependencies (backwards anaphora or cataphora). Earlier work demonstrated that in such structures the parser initiates an active search for an antecedent for a pronoun, leading to gender mismatch(More)
Recent work has suggested that readers’ initial and incorrect interpretation of temporarily ambiguous (‘‘garden path’’) sentences (e.g., Christianson, Hollingworth, Halliwell, & Ferreira, 2001) sometimes lingers even after attempts at reanalysis. These lingering effects have been attributed to incomplete reanalysis. In two eye tracking experiments, we(More)

This article presents two on-line self-paced reading studies and three off-line acceptability judgment studies on the processing of backward anaphoric dependencies in Japanese in which a pronoun precedes potential antecedent noun phrases. The studies investigate the real-time formation of coreference relations and operatorvariable binding relations to(More)
Energy harvesting has been studied as a candidate for powering next generation wireless sensor networks. The technologies that can harvest electric power from ambient energy sources include solar, vibration, heat and wind. However, sensor nodes powered by energy harvesting devices cannot always communicate with other nodes because the energy harvesting(More)
The hyperthermophilic archaeon Thermococcus kodakaraensis possesses four prefoldin genes encoding two alpha subunits (pfdA and pfdC) and two beta subunits (pfdB and pfdD) of prefoldins on the genome. pfdC and pfdD are unique genes whose orthologues are not found in Pyrococcus spp., whereas pfdA and pfdB are commonly found in both Thermococcus and Pyrococcus(More)
Thermococcus kodakarensis possesses two chaperonins, CpkA and CpkB, and their expression is induced by the downshift and upshift, respectively, of the cell cultivation temperature. The expression levels of the chaperonins were examined by using specific antibodies at various cell growth temperatures in the logarithmic and stationary phases. At 60 degrees C,(More)
This paper presents a system for the purpose of field deployment of nodes in wireless sensor networks. We propose a mobile phone based deployment adviser tool which is robust as well as practically implementable. The tool advises a layman deployer to create a optimized wireless sensor network by placing of the nodes according to application requirements.(More)
Knowledge of sensor node 3D location in a sensor network is more important, because many practical applications needs to know the location of sensor data source. This paper presents a new technique for finding indoor 3D location of a sensor node by using Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI). Proposed localization algorithm is derived from centroid(More)
