1. The findings of this study are congruent with previous work that found that subjects' knowledge about medication is not necessarily correlated with adherence to medication regimens. 2. The nature and experience of forgetting medications merits further investigation. Asking patients about forgetting medication is easy to do, and many methods of(More)
A powerful characterization technique, pulse capacitance-voltage (CV) technique, was used to investigate oxide traps before and after annealing for lanthanide zirconium oxide thin films deposited on n-type Si (111) substrates at 300 °C by liquid injection Atomic Layer Deposition (ALD). The results indicated that: (1) more traps were observed compared to the(More)
Oxide materials with large dielectric constants (so-called high-k dielectrics) have attracted much attention due to their potential use as gate dielectrics in Metal Oxide Semiconductor Field Effect Transistors (MOSFETs). A novel characterization (pulse capacitance-voltage) method was proposed in detail. The pulse capacitance-voltage technique was employed(More)
Anhedonia, the diminished anticipation and pursuit of reward, is a core symptom of major depressive disorder (MDD). Trait behavioral activation (BA), as a proxy for anhedonia, and behavioral inhibition (BI) may moderate the relationship between MDD and reward-seeking. The present studies probed for reward learning deficits, potentially due to aberrant BA(More)
Flash memory is the most widely used non-volatile memory device nowadays. In order to keep up with the demand for increased memory capacities, flash memory has been continuously scaled to smaller and smaller dimensions. The main benefits of down-scaling cell size and increasing integration are that they enable lower manufacturing cost as well as higher(More)
In this research, the hafnium titanate oxide thin films, Ti x Hf 1´x O 2 , with titanium contents of x = 0, 0.25, 0.9, and 1 were deposited on germanium substrates by atomic layer deposition (ALD) at 300 ˝ C. The approximate deposition rates of 0.2 Å and 0.17 Å per cycle were obtained for titanium oxide and hafnium oxide, respectively. X-ray Photoelectron(More)
19 chronically psychotic outpatients who had consistently expressed doubt about their need for psychotropic medication provided significantly more inflated estimates of their performance on a problem-solving task than 18 subjects who had not expressed such skepticism. The findings are consistent with the view that the observed relationship between denial of(More)
