BACKGROUND Prayer is amongst the oldest and most widespread interventions used with the intention of alleviating illness and promoting good health. Given the significance of this response to illness for a large proportion of the world's population, there has been considerable interest in recent years in measuring the efficacy of intercessory prayer for the(More)
Accurate and timely information is a key motivator in the widespread adoption of CBSE technology in Europe. Although there are overlaps and informal communications between researchers and adopters of CBSE technology in Europe, there is no systematic mechanism for information interchange between the two. CBSEnet is a European Union initiative to create an(More)
FPGA devices have emerged as a popular platform for the rapid prototyping of biological Spiking Neural Networks (SNNs) applications, offering the key requirement of reconfigurability. However, FPGAs do not efficiently realise the biologically plausible neuron and synaptic models of SNNs, and current FPGA routing structures cannot accommodate the high levels(More)
We present a programmable dynamic charge transfer synapse (CTS) in a single semiconductor device. The CTS comprises a metal oxide semiconductor (MOS) transistor operating in subthreshold and two MOS capacitors in proximity to the transistor. One of the capacitors is permanently biased in strong inversion where the associated density of charge in the well(More)
The importance of using translational safety biomarkers that can predict, detect and monitor drug-induced toxicity during human trials is becoming increasingly recognized. However, suitable processes to qualify biomarkers in clinical studies have not yet been established. There is a need to define clear scientific guidelines to link biomarkers to clinical(More)
FPGA devices have witnessed popularity in their use for the rapid prototyping of biological Spiking Neural Network (SNNs) applications, as they offer the key requirement of reconfigurability. However, FPGAs do not efficiently realise the biological neuron/synaptic models. Also their routing structures cannot accommodate the high levels of neuron(More)
Building Ontario's Wait Time Information System (WTIS) was one of the largest and most complex technology projects Cancer Care Ontario (CCO) had ever taken on. Increasing public concern about wait times and the lack of adequate tools to provide a clear or accurate picture of provincial wait times had led to a sense of urgency for the province to report wait(More)
INTRODUCTION Matrix metalloproteinase-20 (MMP-20) is a predominant enzyme for the progressive processing of enamel extracellular matrix protein components (primarily amelogenin) during the early stages of enamel formation. So far, the recombinant porcine, mouse and bovine MMP-20 have been cloned and used extensively in the researches of tooth enamel(More)
