Generic 3D shape retrieval is a fundamental research area in the field of content-based 3D model retrieval. The aim of this track is to measure and compare the performance of generic 3D shape retrieval methods implemented by different participants over the world. The track is based on a new generic 3D shape benchmark, which contains 1200 triangle meshes(More)
This contribution reports the results of the SHREC 2012 track: Stability on Abstract Shapes. This track saw six registrations of which only three participants effectively sent the results of their runs. The aim of SHREC is to evaluate the performance of existing 3D shape retrieval algorithms, by highlighting their strengths and weaknesses, using a common(More)
Dexmedetomidine was initially approved for clinical use as a sedative. Its development in pain management has been limited. Dexmedetomidine has analgesic effects and analgesic-sparing properties, especially for patients with obstructed airways. Mixing dexmedetomidine with local anesthetics is a promising new avenue to enhance local anesthetics'(More)
OBJECTIVE To determine the expression levels of calcium channel alpha-2-delta-1 (Cavalpha2delta-1) subunit in trigeminal ganglia (TG) and trigeminal spinal subnucleus caudalis C1-C2 spinal cervical dorsal horn(Vc/C2) after infraorbital nerve (ION) ligation injury in relation to the development of neuropathic nociception. METHODS Twelve male SD rats were(More)
Unilateral ligation of the tendon of anterior superficial part of rat masseter muscle (TASM) leads to long-lasting allodynia. Sex differences in peripheral mu-opioid receptor (MOR)-mediated analgesia under persistent myogenic pain are not well understood. In this study, we examined (1) whether locally applied MOR agonists attenuate persistent pain following(More)
