Provable lower bounds are presented for the information rate I(X; X+S+N) where X is the symbol drawn independently and uniformly from a finite-size alphabet, S is a discrete-valued random variable (RV) and N is a Gaussian RV. It is well known that with S representing the precursor intersymbol interference (ISI) at the decision feedback equalizer (DFE)(More)
We design a soft-in soft-out (SISO) decision feedback equalizer (DFE) that performs better than its linear counterpart in turbo equalizer (TE) setting. Unlike previously developed SISO-DFEs, the present DFE scheme relies on extrinsic information formulation that directly takes into account the error propagation effect. With this new approach, both error(More)
Anesthesia is thought to be mediated by inhibiting the integration of information between different areas of the brain. Long-range thalamo-cortical interaction plays a critical role in inducing anesthesia-related unconsciousness. However, it remains unclear how this interaction change according to anesthetic depth. In this study, we aimed to investigate how(More)
Provable lower bounds are presented for the information rate I(X ;X+S+N) where X is the symbol drawn from a fixed, finite-size alphabet, S a discrete-valued random variable (RV) and N a Gaussian RV. The information rate I(X ;X + S +N) serves as a tight lower bound for capacity of intersymbol interference (ISI) channels corrupted by Gaussian noise. The new(More)
STUDY OBJECTIVE To determine the most effective time interval between remifentanil and propofol (TimeRP) for the prevention of propofol injection pain in association with remifentanil dosage. DESIGN Prospective randomized study. SETTING Operating room of a university hospital. PATIENTS Sixty American Society of Anesthesiologists physical status 1 and(More)
A self-iterating soft equalizer (SISE) consisting of a few relatively weak constituent equalizers is shown to provide robust performance even in severe intersymbol interference (ISI) channels that exhibit deep nulls and valleys within the signal band. Constituent equalizers are allowed to exchange soft information in the absence of interleavers based on the(More)
Ramosetron is a selective serotonergic 5-hydroxy-tryptamine receptor 3 antagonist that is used to prevent and treat postoperative nausea and vomiting. This study aimed to characterize the population pharmacokinetics of ramosetron in patients undergoing surgery with general anesthesia. Patients aged 19–80 years received a single intravenous bolus of(More)
The thalamus is thought to relay peripheral sensory information to the somatosensory cortex in the parietal lobe. Long-range thalamo-parietal interactions play an important role in inducing the effect of anesthetic. However, whether these interaction changes vary with different levels of anesthesia is not known. In the present study, we investigated the(More)
We aimed to investigate experimentally how anesthetic levels affect cerebral metabolism measured by near-infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) and to identify a robust marker among NIRS parameters to discriminate various stages of anesthetic depth in rats under isoflurane anesthesia. In order to record the hemodynamic changes and local field potential (LFP) in the(More)
