Stress is an important factor in the initiation and maintenance of smoking in adolescents. Women are more vulnerable to the development of addiction to smoking and have more difficulty quitting than men. Women also showe enhanced responses to stress. Despite these differences, no work has been done examining the effects of stress on the reinforcing efficacy(More)
Stress increases drug intake. This depends on the stressor, drug, and aspect of drug seeking assessed. The objectives of these experiments done in adolescent and adult male rats were to (1) examine social defeat effects on acquisition of nicotine self-administration (SA) and the reinforcing efficacy of nicotine and (2) determine the effects of acute(More)
Objective.  Spinal cord stimulator (SCS) parameter settings have been well studied; however, the goal of this exploratory study was to examine the SCS parameters used during intra-operative stimulation (IOS) at trial lead placement. Methods.  In this retrospective study, we report the IOS parameter settings for 22 patients who underwent thoracic SCS lead(More)
The application of Partial Membership Latent Dirichlet Allocation (PM-LDA) for hyperspectral endmember estimation and spectral unmixing is presented. PM-LDA provides a model for a hyperspectral image analysis that accounts for spectral variability and incorporates spatial information through the use of superpixel-based " documents. " In our application of(More)
In this paper, we study the problem of radio resource allocation, both transmission rates and transmission powers, so as to maximize the throughput of UWB wireless ad-hoc networks. Our analysis is based on the packet-success function (PSF), which is defined as the probability of a data packet being successfully received as a function of the receiver's(More)
The processing errors of globoidal cam are mainly from the center error between the tool and the cam body, the offset error of the cam body and the swing of the tool. The machining quality of globoidal cam is real-time monitored based on Statistical Process Control (SPC) to improve the machining quality of globoidal cam. And a multi-variable error(More)
A semi-supervised Partial Membership Latent Dirichlet Allocation approach is developed for hyperspectral unmixing and endmember estimation while accounting for spectral variability and spatial information. Partial Membership Latent Dirichlet Allocation is an effective approach for spectral un-mixing while representing spectral variability and leveraging(More)
Quantum manipulation technology and photoelectric detection technology have jointly facilitated the rapid development of ultra-sensitive atomic spin magnetometers. To improve the output signal and sensitivity of the spin-exchange-relaxation-free (SERF) atomic spin magnetometer, the noises influencing on the output signal and the sensitivity were analyzed,(More)
Atomic co-magnetometers can be utilized for high-precision angular velocity sensing or fundamental physics tests. The sensitivity of a co-magnetometer determines the angle random walk of an angular velocity sensor and the detection limit for a fundamental physics test. A high-sensitivity K-Rb-(21)Ne co-magnetometer, which is utilized for angular velocity(More)
