Tourette syndrome (TS) is characterized by multiple motor and phonic tics. Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) targeting the supplemental motor area (SMA) can reduce tic severity. Here, we investigated whether 1 Hz rTMS targeted to the SMA could improve symptoms in children with TS. Twenty-five children with TS (aged under 16 years) received(More)
An accurate and highly-efficient performance analysis approach is extremely important for the early-stage designs of network-on-chip. In this paper, the novel M/G/I/N queuing models for generic routers are proposed to analyze various packet blockings and then the performance analysis algorithm is presented to estimate some key metrics in terms of packet(More)
Efficient estimation of population size is a common requirement for many wireless sensor network applications. Examples include counting the number of nodes alive in the network and measuring the scale and shape of physically correlated events. These tasks must be accomplished at extremely low overhead due to the severe resource limitation of sensor nodes,(More)
—Network virtualization has been proposed as a powerful vehicle for running multiple customized networks on a shared infrastructure. Virtual network embedding is a critical step for network virtualization that deals with efficient mapping of virtual nodes and virtual links onto the substrate network resources. Previous work in virtual network embedding(More)
Web service composition is emerging as a promising technology for supporting large-scale, sophisticated business process integration in a variety of complex e-science or e-business domains. Particularly, semantics have been proposed as a key to automatically solving the discovery and composition problem. However, most of semantic composition approaches(More)
—We propose a shot-based interest point selection approach for effective and efficient near-duplicate search over a large collection of video shots. The basic idea is to eliminate the local de-scriptors with lower frequencies among the selected video frames from a shot to ensure that the shot representation is compact and discriminative. Specifically, we(More)
