This paper reports findings from an analysis of medical or health queries to different web search engines. We report results: (i). comparing samples of 10000 web queries taken randomly from 1.2 million query logs from the AlltheWeb.com and Excite.com commercial web search engines in 2001 for medical or health queries, (ii). comparing the 2001 findings from(More)
In light of anatomical evidence suggesting differential connection patterns in central vs. peripheral representations of cortical areas, we investigated the extent to which the response properties of cells in the primary visual area (V1) of the marmoset change as a function of eccentricity. Responses to combinations of the spatial and temporal frequencies(More)
SiC is an extremely promising material for nanoelectromechanical systems given its large Young's modulus and robust surface properties. We have patterned nanometer scale electromechanical resonators from single-crystal 3C-SiC layers grown epitaxially upon Si substrates. A surface nanomachining process is described that involves electron beam lithography(More)
With the fast development of Social Networking Sites (SNS) such as Renren, Facebook, etc., Social Network Analysis (SNA) is becoming a hot research area. However, considering a typical SNS consists of millions to tens of millions of ultra-large-scale data sets, how to deal with such large-scale Social Network (SN) data sets becomes a great challenge for(More)
We describe a broadband radio frequency balanced bridge technique for electronic detection of displacement in nanoelectromechanical systems ͑NEMS͒. With its two-port actuation-detection configuration, this approach generates a background-nulled electromotive force in a dc magnetic field that is proportional to the displacement of the NEMS resonator. We(More)
Different gait patterns of stroke patients cannot be derived satisfactorily by traditional treadmill training robots. This paper presents a method to generate adaptive trajectories for controlling a lower extremity rehabilitation exoskeleton designed to help patients recover or improve walking ability. The model-based adaptation mechanism that consists of(More)
PURPOSE To analyze transforming growth factor beta-induced (TGFBI) gene mutations in a Chinese pedigree with Reis-Bücklers dystrophy (RBCD). METHODS In a four-generation Chinese family with Reis-Bücklers dystrophy, six members were patients and the rest were unaffected. All members of the family underwent complete ophthalmologic examinations. Exons of(More)
In this article I propose a Yin Yang perspective to understand culture. Based on the indigenous Chinese philosophy of Yin Yang, I conceptualize culture as possessing inherently paradoxical value orientations, thereby enabling it to embrace opposite traits of any given cultural dimension. I posit that potential paradoxical values coexist in any culture; they(More)
Retinitis pigmentosa (RP) is the most important hereditary retinal disease caused by progressive degeneration of the photoreceptor cells. This study is to identify gene mutations responsible for autosomal recessive retinitis pigmentosa (arRP) in a Chinese family using next-generation sequencing technology. A Chinese family with 7 members including two(More)
