[1] SCISAT-1, also known as the Atmospheric Chemistry Experiment (ACE), is a Canadian satellite mission for remote sensing of the Earth's atmosphere. It was launched into low Earth circular orbit (altitude 650 km, inclination 74°) on 12 Aug. 2003. The primary ACE instrument is a high spectral resolution (0.02 cm À1) Fourier Transform Spectrometer (FTS)(More)
We present an implemented algorithm f o r a distributed team of autonomous mobile robots to search for an object. When one robot finds it, they all gather around it, and then manipulate (" rescue ") it. The algorithm exploits parallelism, with all robots searching concurrently , and also teamwork, because the manipulation is performed cooperatively. Our(More)
Resting 32-channel topographical measures of EEG slow activity were compared in 12 elderly controls and 12 patients with senile dementia of the Alzheimer type. The patients had higher amplitude delta and theta than controls, especially in the left temporal regions. This greater amount of low frequency EEG activity in the left temporal area is consistent(More)
Behavioral and electrophysiological testing of olfactory function was performed in 33 normal human male and female subjects, 18-83 years of age. Acuity for odor identification and odor detection was verified by standard psychophysical tests. For evoked potential testing, a constant flow olfactometer provided odorant stimuli (amyl acetate) or air control(More)
Quantitative scalp EEG from 32 channels and the cerebral glucose metabolic rate from the 32 underlying cortical positions as assessed by positron emission tomography (PET) with 18F-2-deoxyglucose (FDG) were obtained on 36 patients with mild to moderate senile dementia of the Alzheimer type and 17 age- and sex-matched normal control subjects. Subjects(More)
We introduce the design and capabilities of a resistive heated diamond anvil cell that can be used for side diffraction at simultaneous high pressure and high temperature. The device can be used to study lattice-preferred orientations in polycrystalline samples up to temperatures of 1100 K and pressures of 36 GPa. Capabilities of the instrument are(More)
Olfactory function was evaluated by olfactory event-related potentials and standardized psychophysical measures including the Smell Identification Test and odor detection threshold tests for 3 chemosensory stimulants in 9 subjects with isolated congenital anosmia and 9 age- and gender-matched normosmic controls. There was a significant difference in Smell(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the olfactory origin of the event-related potential (OEP) by evaluating OEP and standardized psychophysical measures in patients with congenital anosmia. METHODS Olfactory function was evaluated by OEP and standardized psychophysical measures including smell identification test and odor detection threshold tests for 3 chemosensory(More)
