This study was designed to evaluate the effects of Solanum xanthocarpum fruit extract in ethylene-glycol-induced urolithiasis in the male Wistar rats. Nephrolithiasis was induced in male Wistar rats by adding ethylene glycol (0.75%) in drinking water for 28 days. Animals were divided into six groups, each containing six viz. Vehicle control, model control,(More)
In this paper, we present a simple and novel technique for classification of multiple channel Electrooculogram signals (EOG). In particular, a viable real time EOG signal classifier for microcontrollers is proposed. The classifier is based on Deterministic Finite Automata (DFA). The system is capable of classifying sixteen different EOG signals. The(More)

Design of assistive technology using advanced soft computing techniques on proper hardware platform has been an important issue of research for the last two decades. In the present study, a novel scheme is(More)
technique for classification of multiple channel Electrooculogram signals (EOG) using VHDL based Hardware. The classifier is based on Deterministic Finite Automata (DFA). The system is capable of classifying sixteen different EOG signals. The viability of the system was tested by performing online experiments with able bodied subjects. Index Terms: DFA(More)
Allergic diseases, such as allergic asthma, are hypersensitivity reactions initiated by immunological mechanisms. Myrica esculenta (M. esculenta) is known traditionally in Ayurveda to possess anti-asthmatic activity. The present investigation was undertaken to evaluate the effect of crude extract of stem bark of M. esculenta (Family Myricaceae, commonly(More)
Human-computer interfacing plays an imperative role for the development of assistive technology. In this paper, we present a simple yet novel system that utilizes electro- oculogram signals for interactive innovation. The system intends to provide rehabilitation to the people with severe disability, especially individuals suffering from various neural(More)

Electromyography (EMG) signal is electrical manifestation of neuromuscular activation by which physiological processes are accessible. The bio-mechanical phenomenon induces the muscle to generate force and produce movement and help to interact with the world. Classification of EMGs is a big challenge due to its non stationary nature. Various features like(More)
The present investigation was undertaken to evaluate the bronchodilating effect and bronchial hyperreactivity of alcoholic extract of Taxus baccata Linn. (AET) leaves in experimental animals. Bronchodilator activity of AET was studied on the histamine and acetylcholine aerosol induced bronchospasm in guinea pigs and bronchial hyperreactivity was studied on(More)
Notwithstanding the extensive research effort has gone into understanding face perception by human brain. The concept of face recognition is established yet is selectively impaired relative to recognition of faces of equivalent difficulty. The objective of present study is to develop a theoretical model and a set of stipulations for understanding and(More)
