To investigate systematically the influence of pyrolysis temperature on properties and heavy metal adsorption potential of municipal sludge biochar, biophysical dried sludge was pyrolyzed under temperature varying from 500°C to 900°C. The biochar yield decreased with the increase in pyrolysis temperature, while the ash content retained mostly, thus(More)
Duchenne muscular dystrophy is due to genetic abnormalities in the dystrophin gene and represents one of the most frequent genetic childhood diseases. In the X-linked muscular dystrophy (mdx) mouse model of dystrophinopathy, different subtypes of skeletal muscles are affected to a varying degree albeit the same single base substitution within exon 23 of the(More)
Tubular aggregates in human muscle biopsies have been reported to occur in a variety of acquired and hereditary neuromuscular conditions since 1964. Recently mutations in the gene encoding the main calcium sensor in the sarcoplasmic reticulum, stromal interaction molecule 1 (STIM1), have been identified as a cause of autosomal dominant tubular aggregate(More)
Working memory is thought to involve separate modality-specific storage systems. Interactions between these storage systems were investigated using a novel cross-modal 2-back paradigm. 2-back, 1-back and target items were presented either visually as a verbalizable linedrawing or auditorily as a digitized spoken word. ERPs for auditory targets were(More)
A large majority of speaker verification systems are based on frame-level acoustic features, such as Mel frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs) which characterize the vocal tract contribution. The most commonly used statistical GMM-UBM classifier models the distribution of MFCCs quite well. Pitch is one of the most important features which characterize(More)
Duchenne muscular dystrophy (DMD) is a severe hereditary myopathy. Standard treatment by glucocorticosteroids is limited because of numerous side effects. The aim of this study was to test immunomodulation by human immunoglobulin G (IgG) as treatment in the experimental mouse model (mdx) of DMD. 2 g/kg human IgG compared to human albumin was injected(More)
We present work that has been carried out in developing the ETSI extended DSR standards ES 202 211 and ES 202 212 (2003). These standards extend the previous ETSI DSR standards: basic front-end ES 201 108 and advanced (noise robust) front-end ES 202 050 respectively. The extensions enable enhanced tonal language recognition as well as server-side speech(More)
A physical phenomenon has been found: in a structure of nanometal film with dielectric-medium loading, the surface polaritons excited by a uniformly moving electron bunch can be transformed into Cherenkov radiation with intensity enhancement in the medium. Based on this mechanism, the surface polariton Cherenkov light radiation source is presented and(More)
