In this article we consider the application of parametric spectral analysis to multichannel event-related potentials (ERPs) during cognitive experiments. We show that with proper data preprocessing, Adaptive MultiVariate AutoRegressive (AMVAR) modeling is an effective technique for dealing with nonstationary ERP time series. We propose a bootstrap procedure(More)
Parking is costly and limited in almost every major city in the world. Innovative parking systems for meeting near-term parking demand are needed. This paper proposes a novel, secure, and intelligent parking system (SmartParking) based on secured wireless network and sensor communication. From the point of users' view, SmartParking is a secure and(More)
Recently, Olariu et al. [3], [7], [18], [19], [20] proposed to refer to a dynamic group of vehicles whose excess computing, sensing, communication, and storage resources can be coordinated and dynamically allocated to authorized users, as a vehicular cloud. One of the characteristics that distinguishes vehicular clouds from conventional clouds is the(More)
The main contribution of this work is the development of a high-dimensional chaos control method that is effective, robust against noise, and easy to implement in experiment. Assuming no knowledge of the model equations, the method achieves control by stabilizing a desired unstable periodic orbit with any number of unstable directions, using small(More)
In Intelligent Vehicular Networks, featured as car-to-car and car-to-infrastructure wireless communication, most applications need important location information or credential information. We address a location-based encryption method that not only ensures messages confidentiality but also authenticates identity and location of communication peers. The(More)
Interaction between host cells and invasive Candida plays a large role in the pathogenicity of Candida species. Fungal-induced endocytosis and active penetration are the two distinct, yet complementary invasion mechanisms of invasive candidiasis. Induced endocytosis is a microorganism-triggered, epithelial-driven, clathrin-mediated and actin-dependent(More)
Urea solution is one of the most commonly employed protein denaturants for protease digestion in proteomic studies. However, it has long been recognized that urea solution can cause carbamylation at the N termini of proteins/peptides and at the side chain amino groups of lysine and arginine residues. Protein/peptide carbamylation blocks protease digestion(More)
Prostate cancer is the most common cancer among men in the U.S. and worldwide, and androgen-deprivation therapy remains the principal treatment for patients. Although a majority of patients initially respond to androgen-deprivation therapy, most will eventually develop castration resistance. An increased understanding of the mechanisms that underline the(More)
Envelope protein gp120 of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is armored with a dense glycan shield, which plays critical roles in envelope folding, immune-evasion, infectivity, and immunogenicity. Site-specific glycosylation profiling of recombinant gp120 is very challenging. Therefore, glycoproteomic analysis of native viral gp120 is still formidable to(More)
