—This paper examines the effectiveness of combining multiple description coding (MDC) and multiple path transport (MPT) for video and image transmission in a multihop mobile radio network. The video and image information is encoded nonhierarchically into multiple descriptions with the following objectives. The received picture quality should be acceptable,(More)
This paper motivates the need for Multiple Path Transport MPT of video and image information in a multihop mobile radio network. The video and image information is encoded non-hierarchically into multiple descriptions MDC with the following objectives. The received picture quality should be acceptable even if only one description is received and every(More)
Preoligodendrocytes have been described in cultures and tissue prints of adult human white matter (Armstrong et al., 1992). To characterize further these precursors of human oligodendrocytes, we have investigated whether they express genes playing a critical role in oligodendrocyte development. In the intact human brain, platelet-derived growth factor(More)
— In this letter, we consider the resequencing delay characteristics of a system with two heterogeneous servers serving a single queue with Poisson packet arrivals. An ordered delivery of packets is guaranteed at the receiver, hence packets arriving out of order suffer additional resequencing delay. We introduce the concept of threshold policies with(More)
Lack of major histocompatibility class I antigens on neurons has been implicated as a possible mechanism for viral persistence in the brain since these antigens are required for cytotoxic T-lymphocyte recognition of infected cells. In subacute sclerosing panencephalitis (SSPE), measles virus (MV) persists in neurons, resulting in a fatal chronic infection.(More)
This paper motivates the need for the Multiple Path Transport (MPT) of information in a multihop mobile radio network for supporting non-real time applications. Typical applications will need a higher bandwidth/higher reliability connection than that provided by current mobile networks. For supporting these applications a mobile node may need t o set up and(More)
The capacity of adult human microglia to activate memory T-lymphocyte responses to recall viral antigens in autologous peripheral blood lymphocytes (PBL) was examined using measles and influenza viruses. Microglia and peripheral blood macrophages were isolated form 6 patients who underwent surgical brain biopsies. Microglial cultures readily expressed high(More)
