UNLABELLED Three individuals with total laryngectomy were studied for their ability to control a hands-free electrolarynx (EL) using neck surface electromyography (EMG) for on/off and pitch modulation. The laryngectomy surgery of participants was modified to preserve neck strap musculature for EMG-based EL control (EMG-EL), with muscles on one side… (More)
Estimating communication cost involved in execut-i n g a p r o gram on distributed memory machines is important for evaluating the overheads due to reparti-tioning. We present a scheme which will work with reasonable eeciency for arrays with at most 3 dimensions. Hyperplane Partitioning technique given by 100 is extended t o c omplete programs by estimating… (More)
Automatic Global Data Partitioning for Distributed Memory Machines DMMs is a diicult problem. In this work, we present a partitioning strategy called 'Hy-perplane Partitioning' which works well loops with non-uniform dependences also. Several optimizations and an implementation on IBM-SP2 are described.
OBJECTIVES Vestibular evoked myogenic potentials (VEMPs) are due to vestibular responses producing brief inhibitions of muscle contractions that are detectable in electromyographic (EMG) responses. VEMP amplitudes are traditionally measured by the peak to peak amplitude of the averaged EMG response (VEMPpp) or by a normalized VEMPpp (nVEMPpp). However, a… (More)
There are currently no clinical devices that can be worn by epilepsy patients who suffer from intractable seizures to warn them of seizure onset. Here we summarize state-of-the-art therapies and devices, and present a second-generation hardware platform in which seizure detection algorithms may be programmed into the device. Bi-polar electrographic data is… (More)
