We have identified secreted protein acidic and rich in cysteine (SPARC) as a potential glioma invasion-promoting gene. To determine whether SPARC alters the growth, attachment, or migration of gliomas, we have used U87T2 and doxycycline-regulatable SPARC-transfected clones to examine the effects of SPARC on (1) cell growth, (2) cell cycle progression, (3)(More)
Reflex cardiovascular responses to muscle contraction are mediated by mechanical and metabolic stimulation of thin muscle afferent fibers. Metabolic stimulants and receptors involved in responses are uncertain. Capsaicin depolarizes thin sensory afferent nerves that have vanilloid type 1 receptors (VR1). Among potential endogenous ligands of thin fibers, H+(More)
CommuterNews is a prototype of an in-car persuasive entertainment system developed by the Stanford Persuasive Technology Lab in collaboration with DaimlerChrysler. The system presents daily news stories in the form of multiple-choice questions and short relevant sound clips selected from a standard broadcast story. By asking questions about the content(More)
Intersection crashes account for 1.72 million crashes per year in the United States. In 2004 stop-sign and traffic signal violations accounted for approximately 302,000 crashes resulting in 163,000 functional life-years lost and $7.9 billion of economic loss [1]. The objective of the Cooperative Intersection Collision Avoidance System for Violations(More)
INTRODUCTION Postoperative delirium is one of the most common complications of major surgery, affecting 10-70% of surgical patients 60 years and older. Delirium is an acute change in cognition that manifests as poor attention and illogical thinking and is associated with longer intensive care unit (ICU) and hospital stay, long-lasting cognitive(More)
—Grid mapping is a well established approach for environment perception in robotic and automotive applications. Early work suggests estimating the occupancy state of each grid cell in a robot's environment using a Bayesian filter to recursively combine new measurements with the current posterior state estimate of each grid cell. This filter is often(More)
