Neural network simulations on a parallel architecture are reported. The architecture is scalable and flexible enough to be useful for simulating various kinds of networks and paradigms. The computing device is based on an existing coarse-grain parallel framework (INMOS transputers), improved with finer-grain parallel abilities through VLSI chips, and is(More)
INTRODUCTION The frequency of amyloidosis is not well known in France. We compiled a register of amyloidosis diagnosed from 1995 to 1999 in the University Hospital of Rennes. PATIENTS AND METHODS This retrospective study was performed between 01 January 1995 and 31 december 1999. Diagnosis was assessed on positivity of red Congo by anatomopathology.(More)
OBJECTIVE Our goal was to estimate the performance statistics of an electronic surveillance system for surgical site infections (SSIs), generally applicable in French hospitals. METHODS Three detection algorithms using 2 different data sources were tested retrospectively on 9 types of surgical procedures performed between January 2010 and December 2011 in(More)
Neural network modules based on page-oriented dynamic digital photorefractive memory are described. The modules can implement two different interconnection organizations, fan-out and fan-in, depending on their target network applications. Neural network learning is realized by the real-time memory update of dynamic digital photorefractive memory. Physical(More)
PURPOSE There are differences between recommendations and practice in the pharmacological treatment of acute mania. OBJECTIVE The objective was to assess conformity of the anti-manic prescription between national recommendations (Haute Autorité de santé [French health authority, HAS] and "résumé des caractéristiques du produit" [product characteristics,(More)
BACKGROUND Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is an effective and well-tolerated treatment in resistant depression with mild to moderate intensity. This indication has not yet been approved in France. The cost and medico-economic value of rTMS in psychiatry remains unknown. The aim of this preliminary study was to assess rTMS cost(More)
