Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) is a progressive neurodegenerative disease characterized by loss of motor function and eventual death as a result of degeneration of motor neurons in the spinal cord and brain. The discovery of mutations in SOD1, the gene encoding the antioxidant enzyme Cu/Zn-superoxide dismutase (CuZnSOD), in a subset of ALS patients has(More)
Supercomputer companies such as Cray, Silicon Graphics , and SRC Computers now offer reconfigurable computer (RC) systems that combine general-purpose processors (GPPs) with field-programmable gate arrays (FP-GAs). The FPGAs can be programmed to become, in effect , application-specific processors. These exciting super-computers allow end-users to create(More)
Reconfigurable computers (RCs) that combine general-purpose processors with field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs) are now available. In these exciting systems, the FPGAs become reconfigurable application-specific processors (ASPs). Specialized high-level language (HLL) to hardware description language (HDL) compilers allow these ASPs to be reconfigured(More)
Field programmable gate array (FPGA) devices typically have limited resources. This means that networks of FPGAs are required for implementing large-scale applications. Use of realtime communication channels can be used for reducing handshaking overhead in order to create high-performance networks. This paper describes a switched, real-time, link-level(More)
Scalp expansion has been combined with scalp reduction and flap procedures for the treatment of male pattern baldness. Expansion offers the advantages of a safe and reliable procedure, as well as more coverage in a shorter period of time. The techniques described involve bilateral temporal parietal occipital (TPO) expanders followed by either a frontal TPO(More)
