This paper introduces a new design to allow interactive, direct manipulation of volume data on volumetrically rendered images. We present an adaptive volume proxy mesh which serves not to define surfaces, but to encode the geometry and physical state of the volume. This system performs a modeling-free form of direct volume deformation by adaptively(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to identify new causes of Charcot-Marie-Tooth (CMT) disease in patients with autosomal-recessive (AR) CMT. METHODS To efficiently identify novel causative genes for AR-CMT, we analyzed 303 unrelated Japanese patients with CMT using whole-exome sequencing and extracted recessive variants/genes shared among multiple(More)
Hemifacial spasm (HFS) is a peripherally-induced movement disorder characterized by the involuntary, unilateral, intermittent, irregular, tonic or clonic contractions of muscles innervated by the ipsilateral facial nerve. Kindling-like hyperactivity of the facial nucleus induced by constant stimulation of compressing artery is considered as the predominant(More)
In the present paper, we propose a novel area management method based on the concept of " pressure ". Plastic Cell Architecture (PCA) is a dynamically reconfigurable architecture that was proposed paying attention to the essentials of processing and the flexibility of Von Neumann architecture. Mechanisms in which area are managed require a function similar(More)
