This paper presents an image-based visual servo controller for an industrial robot. The simple structure controller is based on a transposed Jacobian which feeds back directly the image feature errors and the joint velocities. Under these hypotheses, the control algorithm does not need to use the inverse kinematics and the inverse jacobian matrix.(More)
INTRODUCTION Cardiovascular events (CE) due to atherosclerosis are preventable. Identification of high-risk patients helps to focus resources on those most likely to benefit from expensive therapy. Atherosclerosis is not considered for patient risk categorization, even though a fraction of CE are predicted by Framingham risk factors. Our objective was to(More)
The energy required for active Na chloride reabsorption in the thick ascending limb (TAL) depends on oxygen consumption and oxidative phosphorylation (OXP). In other cells, Na transport is inhibited by the endogenous cannabinoid anandamide through the activation of the cannabinoid receptors (CB) type 1 and 2. However, it is unclear whether anandamide alters(More)
Orchidectomy has been reported to decrease concentrations of thyrotrophin (TSH) in the circulation of male rats without affecting serum levels of thyroid hormones. To understand the mechanism underlying this observation, we have measured the effect of gonadal status on the in-vitro release of TSH-releasing hormone (TRH) by male rat hypothalamic fragments.(More)
