This paper reports the application of evolutionary computation in the automatic generation of a neural network architecture. It is a usual practice to use trial and error to find a suitable neural network architecture. This is not only time consuming but may not generate an optimal solution for a given problem. The use of evolutionary computation is a step(More)
Hypoxic inhibition of TASK-1, a tandem pore domain background K+ channel, provides a critical link between reduced O2 levels and physiological responses in various cell types. Here, we examined the expression and O2 sensitivity of TASK-1 in immortalized adrenomedullary chromaffin (MAH) cells. In physiological (asymmetrical) K+ solutions, 3 microM anandamide(More)
Proton radiography has applications in patient alignment and verification procedures for proton beam radiation therapy. In this paper, we report an experiment which used 200 MeV protons to generate proton energy-loss and scattering radiographs of a hand phantom. The experiment used the first-generation proton computed tomography (CT) scanner prototype,(More)
Previously, we demonstrated an autoregulatory feedback loop in the rat carotid body (CB), involving presynaptic GABA(B) receptor-mediated activation of the background K(+) channel TASK-1. Here, we examined the effects of the selective GABA(B) receptor agonist baclofen on K(+) currents in immortalised adrenomedullary chromaffin (MAH) cells, which share the(More)
