Substantial evidence indicates that major psychiatric disorders are associated with distributed neural dysconnectivity, leading to a strong interest in using neuroimaging methods to accurately predict disorder status. In this work, we are specifically interested in a multivariate approach that uses features derived from whole-brain resting state functional(More)
We report here that 6.9% (68/987) of randomly selected cDNA clones from an S. pombe cDNA library lack apparently long open reading frames which we denote prl. One of them, prl1, was examined further because multiple bands were observed when it was used as a probe in northern blot analysis. These multiple bands appear to be derived from overlapping(More)
Prior to the introduction of the Advanced Configuration and Power Management Interface (ACPI), PCs did not have a unified standard mechanism that allowed the operating system to enumerate, configure, and manage the power usage and thermal properties of built-in hardware devices. Instead, these devices were either left unmanaged, or they were managed by(More)
This randomized controlled trial will compare oral 5-fluorouracil derivatives, TS-1, with intravenous standard chemotherapy such as taxanes in women with metastatic or recurrent breast cancer. Patients with hormone-resistant breast cancer are assigned to either TS-1 (40-60 mg twice daily for 28 consecutive days, followed by a 14-day rest period) or standard(More)
For image registration to be applicable in a clinical setting, it is important to know the degree of uncertainty in the returned point-correspondences. In this paper, we propose a data-driven method that allows one to visualize and quantify the registration uncertainty through spatially adaptive confidence regions. The method applies to various parametric(More)
OBJECTIVE Smoking is associated with gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Varenicline, a nicotinic receptor partial agonist, is used to aid smoking cessation. The purpose of this study was to prospectively examine the long-term benefits of smoking cessation on GERD and health-related quality of life (HR-QOL). METHODS Patients treated with varenicline(More)
There is great interest in developing imaging-based methods for diagnosing neuropsychiatric conditions. To this end, multiple data-sharing initiatives have been launched in the neuroimaging field, where datasets are collected across multiple imaging sites. While this enables researchers to study the disorders of interest with substantial sample size, it(More)
There is an error in the Results subsection of the Abstract as well as third paragraph of the Results section. In both of these instances, 43.9% should be 43.1%.
