In ad hoc networks, devices are required to selforganize themselves into a network without previously established infrastructure. The kind of ad hoc network we consider in this paper is made up of a multitude of relatively low mobility, short range, wireless devices, pervasively deployed throughout the environment. One of the most important design criteria(More)
This paper introduces the neuRFonTM Netform, a selforganizing wireless network for low data rate, low-power fixed sensor nodes. The protocol utilizes a logical backbone architecture through which data communications between all the network nodes are supported by hierarchical routing. We present algorithms that underpin the self-organizing features. The(More)
In this paper, performance analysis of the Wireless and Wired computer networks through simulation has been attempted using OPNET as simulating tool. For wired networks, the performance parameters like delay and throughput have been investigated with varying transmission links and load balancers. The load-balancing has been analyzed through parameters like(More)
The effects of bis(7)-tacrine, a novel acetylcholinesterase inhibitor, on ischemia-induced cell death and apoptosis were investigated in primary cerebral cortical astrocytes of mice. Following a 6 h in vitro ischemic incubation of the cultures, a marked decrease in the percentage of viable cells was observed by lactate dehydrogenase (LDH) release assay.(More)
A decrease of protein, RNAs, and starch, and an increase of sugar were observed in 3-day water-stressed red osier dogwood plants (Cornus stolonifera Michx.) when the frost hardiness increased from -3 to -6 C. As the frost hardiness increased to -11 C after 7 days of treatment, the starch continuously decreased, however, the proteins and RNAs increased with(More)
