Propofol is alleged to possess both pro- and anticonvulsant properties, leading to controversy regarding its use in patients with a history of seizures. Since propofol is administered for both sedation and hypnosis, it is important to understand the effects of low (0.5-1.0 mg/kg) and high (2-2.5 mg/kg) doses of propofol on the electroencephalogram (EEG). In(More)
The purpose of this study was to analyze the transcriptional regulation of the zebrafish solute carrier family 6 member 3 gene (slc6a3, dopamine transporter, dat), as a first step towards isolating regulatory sequences useful for driving transgene expression within dopaminergic neurons of the zebrafish CNS in vivo. We found that the 3.0 kb slc6a3 mRNA is(More)
A study of the propagation of electroencephalogram (EEG) activity before seizure by means of the Directed Transfer Function (DTF) is presented. The DTF method is a multi-channel parametric method of analysis based on an autoregressive model, and is capable of supplying such information as the direction, spectra and dynamics of the propagation of EEG(More)
In the last decade, the focus of agent research has shifted from single agent systems to multi-agent systems (MASs). Dynamic agent coordination is one of the challenge problems of multi-agent research. One coordination problem is how to achieve agent scheduling under open dynamic environments. Petri Nets (PNs) and Coloured Petri Nets (CPNs) are system study(More)
Nowadays, agent-based service-oriented systems have been widely applied in many complex domains such as e-markets, grid systems, e-governments and service-oriented software systems, cross Internet and organizations. In this kind of service-oriented multi-agent systems, service providers (agents) and service consumers (agents) are autonomous entities and can(More)
Refractory gelastic seizure is one of the most common clinical manifestations in patients with hypothalamic hamartoma (HH) and HH is usually regarded as the epileptogenic focus. A young female patient with a small HH and refractory seizures is reported here. However, both the seizure semiology and results of electroencephalogram monitoring indicated the(More)
Despite the drive towards evidence-based practice, the extent to which research evidence is being implemented in nursing practice is unclear, particularly in developing countries. This study was to assess the levels of perceived barriers to and facilitators of research utilization in practice among Chinese nurses and inter-relationships between these(More)
OBJECTIVE Resecting epileptogenic foci combined with bipolar electrocoagulation of functional cortex has been successfully used to treat intractable epilepsy. METHOD 124 cases with intractable epilepsy have been treated from 1996 to 1999, 75 cases with temporal lobe epilepsy and 48 cases with extra-temporal lobe epilepsy, and one case with infantile(More)

We present theoretical and numerical analysis of a plasmonic-dielectric hybrid system for symmetric and asymmetric coupling between silver cut-wire pairs and silicon grating waveguide with periodic grooves. The results show that both couplings can induce electromagnetically-induced transparency (EIT) analogous to the quantum optical phenomenon. The(More)
Gelastic seizure is an uncommon type of seizure which is characterized by recurrent bouts of unprovoked and stereotyped laughter. It is commonly observed in patients with hypothalamic hamartoma, while its association with other cerebral lesions is rare. The patient was a 15-year-old right-handed male. His chief complaints were recurrent onsets of laughter(More)
