The traffic forecasting model, when considered as a system with inputs of historical and current data and outputs of future data, behaves in a nonlinear fashion and varies with time of day. Traffic data are found to change abruptly during the transition times of entering or leaving rush hours. Accurate and real-time models are needed to approximate the(More)
To observe the effect of intracarotid administration of adenosine on neurons in the rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) region, 72 spontaneous active units were extracellularly recorded from 28 Sprague-Dawley rats with sino-aortic denervation. The results obtained are as follows: (1) intracarotid administration of Ado (25 micrograms/kg) reduced the(More)
To observe the effect of intracarotid administration of endothelin (ET-1) on electrical activity of neurons within rostral ventrolateral medulla (RVLM) region, 87 spontaneous active units were extracellularly recorded in 35 Sprague-Dawley rats with sino-aortic denervation. The results obtained are as follows. (1) Intracarotid administration of ET-1 (0.3(More)
Effects of adenosine (Ado) on spontaneous and glutamate induced discharges of neurons in CA1 area of hippocampal slices were examined using extracelluar recording technique. The results are as follows. (1) In response to the application of Ado (0.01 0.1 micromol/L, n=20) into the superfusate, spontaneous discharge rates (SDR) of 20 neurons decreased(More)
Routing in dynamic and stochastic network is to provide adaptive 'best' route guidance where the link/route travel times are modelled as a time-varying stochastic process. Typical approaches for routing when travel times are both dynamic and stochastic assume that link travel times are independent and travellers are seeking for expected shortest paths. It(More)

MALDI imaging mass spectrometry (MALDI-IMS) has been used successfully in mapping different lipids in tissue sections, yet existing protocols fail to detect the diverse species of mitochondria-unique cardiolipins (CLs) in the brain which are essential for cellular and mitochondrial physiology. We have developed methods enabling the imaging of individual CLs(More)
Transportation Synthesis Reports (TSRs) are brief summaries of currently available information on topics of interest to WisDOT technical staff in highway development, construction and operations. Online and print sources include NCHRP and other TRB programs, AASHTO, the research and practices of other state DOTs, and related academic and industry research.(More)
The present study was undertaken to define whether intracarotid injection of capsaicin induces Fos expression associated with the activation of NOS-containing neurons in brainstem nuclei by combining the immunocytochemical method for Fos with NADPH-d histochemical technique for NOS. The results obtained are as follows: (1) Intracarotid injection of(More)
