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)
To explore the operation of large-scale networks in the cerebral cortex, we sought to measure the functional interdependence of event-related local "eld potentials (LFPs) from di!erent cortical areas in macaque monkeys performing a visuomotor pattern discrimination task. To track the transformation of functional interdependence accompanying rapid changes in(More)
—Recently, Olariu and his coworkers [3], [7], [18]–[20] proposed to refer to a dynamic group of autonomous 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(More)
The past decade has witnessed the confluence of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) and Vehicular Ad hoc Networks (VANET) that promises to revolutionize incident detection and the timely dissemination of traffic-related information to the various interested parties. One of the key components is expected to be a Cooperative Collision Warning System(More)
Glycoproteins secreted into plasma from T cells infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) latent infection may provide insight into understanding the host response to HIV infection in vivo. Glycoproteomics, which evaluates the level of the glycoproteome, remains a novel approach to study this host response to HIV. In order to identify human(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)
HIV elite suppressors (ES) or controllers are individuals achieving control of viremia by their natural immunological mechanisms without highly active antiretroviral therapy (HAART). Study of the mechanisms responsible for the immunological suppression of viremia in ES may lead to the detection of individuals with ES and the effective control of HIV(More)
The sterile alpha motif (SAM) and HD domain-containing protein-1 (SAMHD1) inhibits the infection of resting CD4+ T cells and myeloid cells by human and related simian immunodeficiency viruses (HIV and SIV). Vpx inactivates SAMHD1 by promoting its proteasome-dependent degradation through an interaction with CRL4 (DCAF1) E3 ubiquitin ligase and the C-terminal(More)
