This paper presents a fuzzy neural network system (FNNS) for implementing fuzzy inference systems. In the FNNS, a fuzzy similarity measure for fuzzy rules is proposed to eliminate redundant fuzzy logical rules, so that the number of rules in the resulting fuzzy inference system will be reduced. Moreover, a fuzzy similarity measure for fuzzy sets that(More)
Using a randomized parallel group study design, we compared the cognit ive effects of carbamazepine (CBZ), phenobarbital (PB), and valproate (VPA) in children with epilepsy. Seventy-three children with newly diagnosed epilepsy were tested with the Wechsler Intelligence Scale for Children-Revised (WISC-R), Bender-Gestalt test, and auditory event-related(More)
BACKGROUND Convergent studies have highlighted the dysfunction of default mode network (DMN) in major depressive disorder (MDD). The altered connectivity in posterior cingulate cortex (PCC) and medial prefrontal cortex (mPFC) was especially found to be of interest in the resting state functional connectivity analysis. Recently, more attention has turned to(More)
The aim of this study was to assess landmark identification on digital images in comparison with those obtained from original radiographs. Ten cephalometric radiographs were selected randomly. Seven orthodontic residents identified 19 cephalometric landmarks on both the original radiographs and the digital images. To assess the concordance between landmarks(More)
To determine the long-term neurotoxicity of prenatal exposure to polychlorinated biphenyls (PCBs), 54 children--27 'Yu-Cheng' ('oil disease') children and 27 controls--were administered a battery of tests, including the WISC-R, auditory event-related potentials (P300), pattern visual evoked potentials (P-VEPs) and somatosensory evoked potentials (SSEPs).(More)
We demonstrate a 120 GHz 3-dB bandwidth on-chip silicon photonic interleaver with a flat passband over a broad spectral range of 70 nm. The structure of the interleaver is based on an asymmetric Mach-Zehnder interferometer (MZI) with 3 ring resonators coupled to the arms of the MZI. The transmission spectra of this device depict a rapid roll-off on the band(More)
Proliferative vitreoretinopathy (PVR) and proliferative diabetic retinopathy (PDR) are characterized by the development of epi-retinal membranes which may exert a tractional force on retina. A lot of inflammatory growth factors may disturb the local ocular cells such as retinal pigment epithelial (RPE) cells, causing them to migrate and proliferate in the(More)
