Despite patients with Alzheimer's disease (AD) were reported of revealing gait disorders and balance problems, there is still lack of objective quantitative measurement of gait patterns and balance capability of AD patients. Based on an inertial-sensor-based wearable device, this paper develops gait and balance analyzing algorithms to obtain quantitative(More)
BACKGROUND α-Mangostin (α-MG) is a main constituent of the fruit hull of the mangosteen. Previous studies have shown that α-MG has pharmacological activities such as antioxidant, antitumor, anti-inflammatory, antiallergic, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral effects. This study aims to investigate the anti-inflammatory molecular action of α-MG on gene(More)
BACKGROUND Increasing use of endoscopic endonasal surgery for suprasellar lesions with extension into the optic canal (OC) has necessitated a better endonasal description of the OC. OBJECTIVE To identify the osseous OC transcranially and then investigate its anatomic relationship to the key endonasal intrasphenoidal landmarks. We also aimed to determine(More)
Regular aerobic exercise can reduce blood pressure and is recommended as part of the lifestyle modification to reduce high blood pressure and cardiovascular risk. Hypertension itself, or/and pharmacological treatment for hypertension is associated with adverse effects on some aspects of quality of life. This study was performed to evaluate the effects of(More)
BACKGROUND Surgical evacuation of spontaneous supratentorial intracerebral hemorrhage (ICH) is controversial because the traditional surgical approach sometimes causes further brain injury. The introduction of the neuroendoscope has brought with it the new idea of minimal invasiveness, which may improve the surgical results of ICH. METHODS Twenty-one(More)
Gangliogliomas in the central nervous system are usually enign; however, incidences of anaplastic change have been eported. Most malignant transformation is related to radiaion therapy, often occurring several years after treatment [1–3]. his study describes the malignant transformation into anaplastic umors of two well-differentiated gangliogliomas with(More)
This paper proposes miniaturized bandpass filters with double-folded substrate integrated waveguide (SIW) resonators using multilayer low-temperature co-fired ceramic (LTCC) technology. Formed by inserting a metal plate with two orthogonal slots into the cavity, the double-folded SIW resonator is used for the circuit size reduction with its footprint about(More)
The anatomy of the skull base is complex with multiple neurovascular structures in a small space. Understanding all of the intricate relationships begins with understanding the anatomy of the sphenoid bone. The cavernous sinus contains the carotid artery and some of its branches; cranial nerves III, IV, VI, and V1; and transmits venous blood from multiple(More)
The aim of the work is to increase the visual information in magnetic resonance imaging based susceptibility weighted images. Our approach is to amplify spatial frequency information of the phase mask used to increase susceptibility weighting using a modified version of the human contrast sensitivity function. Thereby, we propose a modified version of the(More)
