Firing activity from neural ensembles in rat hippocampus has been previously used to determine an animal's position in an open environment and separately to predict future behavioral decisions. However, a unified statistical procedure to combine information about position and behavior in environments with complex topological features from ensemble(More)
PURPOSE To investigate the effects of topical FTY720 and cyclosporin A (CsA) on allogeneic corneal transplantation in mice. METHODS A total of 75 BALB/c mice received corneal grafts from C57BL/6 donors. Recipients were treated with 0.1%, 0.3%, or 0.5% FTY720 ophthalmic gel or 1% CsA eye-drops after the graft (controls received no treatment). The number of(More)
Instability of targeting ligand is a roadblock towards successful development of folate targeted liposomes. Folate ligands have been linked to polyethylene glycol (PEG) and cholesterol by an amide bond to form folate-CONH-PEG-CONH-Cholesterol (F-CONH-PEG-CONH-Chol), which is subject to hydrolysis. To increase the stability of folate ligands and promote the(More)
—We report a process for top-gate amorphous silicon thin-film transistors (α-Si TFTs) that employs a self-aligned metal silicide for source and drain (S/D). All process steps, including deposition of active layers and formation of metal silicide, are accomplished at temperatures that are less than or equal to 280 • C. The thermal budget is compatible with(More)
Existing a-Si floating gate TFT (FG-TFT) nonvolatile memory suffers from two drawbacks: (i) short retention time [1] and (ii) strong dependence of drain saturation current (In , sAT) on drain voltage [2]. In this study, we present (i) a new device structure that eliminates In , sAT dependence on drain voltage; (ii) room­ temperature retention time of> 1 0(More)
Corneal transplantation is the most used therapy for eye disorders. Although the cornea is somewhat an immune privileged organ, immune rejection is still the major problem that reduces the success rate. Therefore, effective chemical drugs that regulate immunoreactions are needed to improve the outcome of corneal transplantations. Here, a(More)
