A brain-computer interface (BCI) based on steady-state visual-evoked potentials (SSVEP) has two difficulties: limitation of the number of commands and uneven probabilities of command execution. To address these problems, the present paper proposes a paradigm of BCI using frequency-modulated visual stimuli. The commands are translated into code words(More)
This paper presents the results of the SHREC'10 Protein Models Classification Track. The aim of this track is to evaluate how well 3D shape recognition algorithms can classify protein structures according to the CATH [CSL * 08] superfamily classification. Five groups participated in this track, using a total of six methods, and for each method a set of(More)
We report the effect of papaverine, tetrahydro-papaverine, laudanosine, dimethoxyphenylethylamine, dopamine, and its metabolites on mitochondrial respiration and activities of the enzymes in the electron transfer complexes, as mitochondrial toxins may be implicated in the etiology and the pathogenesis of Parkinson's disease. Papaverine was the most potent(More)
SUMMARY The authors evaluated the embolization effects on experimental aneurysm models with a liquid material. This material is a mixture of poly (HEMA-co-MMA), Iopamidol, water and a small amount of ethyl alcohol. We have satisfactorily treated over 30 cases of AVM with this material. Out of four solutions of different viscosity, we used the solution with(More)
We report a 60-year-old woman with progressive ataxia, myoclonus, choreoathetosis, and dementia. She was well until 27 years of the age when she noted an onset of gait disturbance and speech disturbance. She noted abnormal involuntary movements in her four limbs at 42 years of the age. Her symptoms had progressively become worse and she fell down frequently(More)
SUMMARY Characteristics of a newly developed liquid material for embolization of AVM and its clinical experiments are reported. This liquid is composed of dissolving poly (2-hydroxyethyl methacrylate-co-methyl methacrylate) in Iopamiron with adding a small amount of ethyl alcohol. Thirty-two cases of AVM and 5 cases of spinal AVM were embolized with this(More)
