Purpose – The purpose of this paper is to examine the antecedents of, and the relationships between, entrepreneurial opportunity recognition, and individual-level innovation performance. Design/methodology/approach – Questionnaire data were collected from 268 senior R&D project team members (response rate 64.58 percent) along with 83 R&D managers who(More)
In this paper, an 8-channel closed-loop neural-prosthetic SoC is presented for real-time intracranial EEG (iEEG) acquisition, epileptic seizure detection, and adaptive feedback stimulation control. The SoC is composed of 8 energy-efficient analog front-end amplifiers (AFEAs), a 10b delta-modulated SAR ADC (DMSAR ADC), a configurable bio-signal processor(More)
We examined whether the Alberta Infant Motor Scale (AIMS) is able to identify very low-birth-weight (VLBW) preterm infants with cystic periventricular leukomalacia (PVL) as early as 6 months of corrected age. Longitudinal follow-up AIMS assessments were done at 6, 12, and 18 months old for 35 VLBW infants with cystic PVL (cPVL(+)), 70 VLBW infants without(More)
Epilepsy is one of the most common neurological disorders. Around 1% of the world's population is affected, and nearly 25% of the patients cannot be treated by available therapies. Recently, seizure-triggered feedback electrical stimulation has been proved to effectively suppress pathological brain activities [1], but devices with accurate detection and(More)
OBJECTIVE Around 1% of the world's population is affected by epilepsy, and nearly 25% of patients cannot be treated effectively by available therapies. The presence of closed-loop seizure-triggered stimulation provides a promising solution for these patients. Realization of fast, accurate, and energy-efficient seizure detection is the key to such implants.(More)
—The development of many telemedicine systems focus on the utility of communication techniques. However, the comfort of long-term Electrocardiogram (ECG) monitoring in daily life is necessary and is also an important unresolved issue. A wearable mobile electrocardiogram monitoring system (WMEMS) is proposed to monitor ECG in this study. It mainly consists(More)
Amygdala kindling is a model of temporal lobe epilepsy (TLE) with convulsion. The rapid amygdala kindling has an advantage on quick development of motor seizures and for antiepileptic drugs screening. The rapid amygdala kindling causes epileptogenesis accompanied by an anxiolytic response in early isolation of rat pups or depressive behavior in immature(More)
AIM XRCC1 and XPD are two major repair genes involved in nucleotide excision repair (NER), which is reported to be associated with risk of several cancers. We explored the association of XRCC1 and XPD polymorphisms with the risk of HCC. METHODS A total of 410 cases with HCC and 410 health controls were collected. XRCC1 Arg194Trp, XRCC1 Arg399Gln, XPD(More)
