In a traditional speech recognition system, the distance score between a test token and a reference pattern is obtained by simply averaging the distortion sequence resulted from matching of the two patterns through a dynamic programming procedure. The final decision is made by choosing the one with the minimal average distance score. If we view the(More)
We have evaluated the structure of the CGG repeat within the FMR1 gene of an Asian population and found the most common size of the repeat to be 29 and 30 with a minor population of 36 repeats. We have isolated and sequenced DNA containing the 36 repeats and found the basis sequence to be (CGG)9AGG(CGG)9AGG(CGG)6AGG(CGG)9; with a (CGG)6)AGG insertion,(More)
Eighty-eight consecutive patients undergoing total knee arthroplasty (TKA) were reviewed retrospectively and divided into two groups. Group 1 (64 patients) had both knees replaced simultaneously by one team in a single procedure while Group II (24 patients) had 2 operations staged about 7 days apart. The blood loss, operative time, knee functional score,(More)
We investigated whether extensive repetition can diminish age-related differences between younger and older adults in functional magnetic resonance adaptation (fMR-A). Datasets were obtained from 26 younger and 24 older healthy adults presented with two scenes that repeated 20 times amongst other novel scenes during fMRI scanning. The average cortical(More)
Atrioventricular (AV) nodal reentrant tachycardia is one of the most common supraventricular tachycardias in childhood. However, information about AV nodal reentrant tachycardia in childhood is limited, especially about the variant and multiple forms. The purpose of this retrospective study was to investigate the clinical and electrophysiological(More)
Background: The optimal management of symptomatic lumbar disc herniations (LDH) remains controversial. This study examines the feasibility and safety of a video-assisted endoscopic intracanalicular technique for managing symptomatic LDH. Methods: From September 1999 to June 2000, we used the current technique, the Vertebroscope System, on 11 patients (six(More)
Frozen shoulder is a functional disorder related to shoulder muscles. Among many treatment strategies, rehabilitation exercise is one of the most common and viable therapy. In this research, a new 8 degrees of freedom (DOFs) rehabilitation robot arm named NTUH-II has been developed. The robot arm is able to provide most of upper limb rehabilitation motions(More)
A study of male sterility over a period of three consecutive years on a conifer species endemic to Taiwan, Taiwania cryptomerioides Hayata (Taxodiaceae), was done for this article. With the aids of fluorescence and electron microscopic observations, the ontogenic processes in the fertile and sterile microsporangia are compared, using samples collected from(More)
