Hearing loss has been associated with cognitive decline in the elderly and is considered to be an independent risk factor for dementia. One of the most common causes for acquired sensorineural hearing loss is exposure to excessive noise, which has been found to impair learning ability and cognitive performance in human subjects and animal models.

PURPOSE Nanoparticles (NPs) that target bone tissue were developed using poly(lactic-co-glycolic acid) (PLGA) copolymers and tetracycline (TC)-based bone-targeting moieties. These NPs are expected to enable the transport of drugs, such as simvastatin (SIM), for the treatment of osteoporosis. METHODS The molecular structures of TC-PLGA were validated by(More)
1. Abstract Virtual machine (VM) migration in Dynamic Resource Management (DRM) is a crucial factor in minimizing the cost of datacenter operation. To facilitate live migration of VM, many approaches has been proposed and tested. However, existing migration techniques are not silent enough for highly utilized clouds due to their latency and network(More)
—This paper presents a new method of value identification of pointer-type pressure gauges based on machine vision, by which an automatic calibration system can be designed. Hough Transformation, image subtraction and image thinning technique are employed to obtain the coordinate of the pointer rotating center. Through removing the pixels data outside of the(More)
