We studied time estimation in patients with frontal damage (F) and alcoholic Korsakoff (K) patients in order to differentiate between the contributions of working memory and episodic memory to temporal cognition. In Experiment 1, F and K patients estimated time intervals between 10 and 120 s less accurately than matched normal and alcoholic control(More)
We studied the recovery of memory and executive function in 10 patients following anterior communicating artery aneurysm (ACoA) rupture and repair. Patients were tested at 2 consecutive points in time following surgery (approximately at 2 and 3 months). At the first testing, the patients divided into 2 groups based on the severity of impairment on executive(More)
OSI-930 is a novel inhibitor of the receptor tyrosine kinases Kit and kinase insert domain receptor (KDR), which is currently being evaluated in clinical studies. OSI-930 selectively inhibits Kit and KDR with similar potency in intact cells and also inhibits these targets in vivo following oral dosing. We have investigated the relationships between the(More)
Advances in hardware and communication technology make distributed sound acquisition increasingly attractive. We describe a distributed beamforming method based on the diffusion adaptation paradigm. In contrast to existing distributed beamforming methods, the method does not impose conditions on the topology or the structure of the network nor does it(More)
We report a fatal case of meningitis caused by Salmonella Enteritidis phage type 14b in a middle-aged man who had no history or findings to suggest he was immunocompromised. To our knowledge, this is the first reported case of Salmonella meningitis in an adult in Ireland, and the first case of meningitis in an adult caused by phage type 14b. This case was(More)
BACKGROUND Therapeutic hypothermia provides incomplete neuroprotection for neonatal hypoxic-ischemic encephalopathy (HIE). We examined whether hemodynamic goals that support autoregulation are associated with decreased brain injury and whether these relationships are affected by birth asphyxia or vary by anatomic region. METHODS Neonates cooled for HIE(More)
Until now, distributed acoustic beamforming has focused on optimizing for a beamformer over an entire network, with each node contributing to the beamformer output. We present a novel approach that introduces sparsity to this beamformer computation, where we attempt to optimize for a subset of nodes within the network that produce SNR gains roughly(More)
