Effective management of asthma and other respiratory diseases requires constant monitoring and frequent data collection using a spirometer and longitudinal analysis. However, even after three decades of clinical use, there are very few personalized spirometers available on the market, especially those connecting to smartphones. To address this problem, we(More)
Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) significantly increases the throughput of a communication system by employing multiple antennas at the transmitter and the receiver. To extract maximum performance from a MIMO system, a computationally intensive search based detector is needed. To meet the challenge of MIMO detection, typical suboptimal MIMO detectors(More)
BACKGROUND Transplantations of human stem cell derivatives have been widely investigated in rodent models for the potential restoration of function of neural pathways after spinal cord injury (SCI). Studies have already demonstrated cells survival following transplantation in SCI. We sought to evaluate survival and potential therapeutic effects of(More)
—Multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) is an existing technique that can significantly increase throughput of the system by employing multiple antennas at the transmitter and the receiver. Realizing maximum benefit from this technique requires compu-tationally intensive detectors which poses significant challenges to receiver design. Furthermore, a flexible(More)
In this demo we present the Wireless Open-Access Research Platform for Networks (WARPnet), a research testbed aimed at performing experiments at the network level. The platform is designed to support not only conventional research areas but also new modalities like cooperative coding and network coding. It is based on the Virtex-4 FPGA, which provides the(More)
—There has been considerable success in developing strategies to detect insider threats in information systems based on what one might call the random object access model or ROA. This approach models illegitimate users as ones who randomly access records. The goal is to use statistics, machine learning, knowledge of workflows and other techniques to support(More)
OBJECTIVE Data in electronic health records (EHRs) is being increasingly leveraged for secondary uses, ranging from biomedical association studies to comparative effectiveness. To perform studies at scale and transfer knowledge from one institution to another in a meaningful way, we need to harmonize the phenotypes in such systems. Traditionally, this has(More)
OBJECTIVE Numerous studies have demonstrated increased load of de novo copy number variants or single nucleotide variants in individuals with neurodevelopmental disorders, including epileptic encephalopathies, intellectual disability, and autism. METHODS We searched for de novo mutations in a family quartet with a sporadic case of epileptic encephalopathy(More)
Auditory menus can supplement or replace visual menus to enhance usability and accessibility. Despite the rapid increase of research on auditory displays, more is still needed to optimize the auditory-specific aspects of these implementations. In particular, there are several menu attributes and features that are often displayed visually, but that are not(More)
