K-SEC(Korean-Spoken English Corpus) is a kind of speech database that is under construction by the authors of this paper. This article discusses the needs of the K-SEC from various academic disciplines and industrial circles, and it introduces the characteristics of the K-SEC design, its catalogues and contents of the recorded database, exemplifying what(More)
Recent functional imaging studies have demonstrated that the sensation of tinnitus is associated with activity in cortical regions functionally linked to subserve the generation, perception and processing of the tinnitus stimulus. Previous functional imaging studies have focused primarily on the cortical centers. However, none of these examined the(More)
We provide a proof of both the stability and the approximation property for the finite element approximations of the axisymmetric Stokes problem by continuous piecewise polynomials of degree κ + 1 for the velocity and continuous piecewise polynomials of degree κ for the pressure with any κ ≥ 1. New techniques are designed so that in this perspective, by a(More)
This paper is devoted to the convergence rate estimate for the method of successive subspace corrections applied to symmetric and positive semidefinite (singular) problems. In a general Hilbert space setting, a convergence rate identity is obtained for the method of subspace corrections in terms of the subspace solvers. As an illustration, the new abstract(More)
Altered expression of neurotrophic factors as well as neuroinflammation is commonly associated with Major depressive disorder (MDD) and Alzheimer's disease (AD). To investigate whether or not reserpine-induced MDD affects the expression of AD-related proteins, the expression of γ-secretase components and substrate were measured in brains of ICR mice(More)
Multiple reaction monitoring (MRM) mass spectrometry has been successfully applied to monitor targeted proteins in biological specimens, raising the possibility that assays could be configured to measure all human proteins. We report the results of a pilot study designed to test the feasibility of a large-scale, international effort for MRM assay(More)
For the continuum and discrete elastic equations, we derive exact artificial boundary conditions (ABCs), often referred to as transparent boundary conditions, that can be applied at a planar interface below which there are no forces. Solution of the elasticity equations can then be performed using this interface as an artificial boundary, often with greatly(More)
A 67-year-old woman presented with memory impairment and behavioral changes. Brain MRI indicated hepatic encephalopathy. Abdominal CT scans revealed an intrahepatic portosystemic venous shunt that consisted of two shunt tracts to the aneurysmal sac that communicated directly with the right hepatic vein. The large tract was successfully occluded by(More)
Improved eating quality is a major breeding target in japonica rice due to market demand. Consequently, quantitative trait loci (QTL) for glossiness of cooked rice and amylose content associated with eating quality have received much research focus because of their importance in rice quality. In this study, QTL associated with 12 grain quality traits were(More)
