In the last decade, many studies have used automated processes to analyze magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) data such as cortical thickness, which is one indicator of neuronal health. Due to the convenience of image processing software (e.g., FreeSurfer), standard practice is to rely on automated results without performing visual inspection of intermediate(More)
Recurrent high-grade gliomas are resistant to chemotherapy and have poor prognosis. The combination of irinotecan and bevacizumab has been reported to be an active regimen in the treatment of this disease. Herein we report our experience with this regimen with the objective of evaluating its efficacy and examining its safety profile. We performed a(More)
Due to their central role in essential physiological processes, potassium channels are common targets for animal toxins. These toxins in turn are of great value as tools for studying channel function and as lead compounds for drug development. Here, we used a direct toxin pull-down assay with immobilised KcsA potassium channel to isolate a novel(More)

In this version of Colored Bin-Packing, we have n items of unit weight, where each item is one of x colors, where x ≥ 3. Again, we have an unlimited supply of bins, each with weight limit L, in which to pack the items and our goal is to minimize the total number of bins. 2 Algorithm The unit-weight case introduces weight constraints. Furthermore, we know(More)
With the use of Near-infrared spectroscopy(NIRS), the noninvasive measurement of cerebral oxygen concentration can be achieved in vivo based on the Lambert-Beer Law. In this paper, we discuss the possibility of studying higher brain functions through a combination of cerebral oxygen saturation and cerebral function measurement. Event-related experiments are(More)
