The objective of this study is to assess the cerebral oxygenation oscillations in subjects with cerebral infarction (CI) based on the wavelet transform of near infrared spectroscopy (NIRS) signals. A total of twenty subjects were recruited from a local hospital to participate in this study. The subjects lay in the supine position and cerebral oxygenation(More)
—Both rewriting and error correction are important technologies for non-volatile memories, especially flash memories. However, coding schemes that combine them have been limited. This paper presents a new coding scheme that combines rewriting and error correction for the write-once memory model. Its construction is based on polar codes, and it supports any(More)
SUMMARY Epilepsy is among the most common neurologic disorders, yet it is estimated that about one third of patients do not respond favorably to currently available drug treatments and up to 50% experience major side effects of these treatments. Although surgical resection of seizure foci can provide reduction or cessation of seizure incidents, a(More)
In this paper, we propose a novel method for parcellating the human brain into 193 anatomical structures based on diffusion tensor images (DTIs). This was accomplished in the setting of multi-contrast diffeomorphic likelihood fusion using multiple DTI atlases. DTI images are modeled as high dimensional fields, with each voxel exhibiting a vector valued(More)
WiMAX has been introduced as a competitive alternative for metropolitan broadband wireless access technologies. It is connection oriented and it can provide very high data rates, large service coverage, and flexible quality of services (QoS). Due to the large number of connections and flexible QoS supported by WiMAX, the uplink access in WiMAX networks is(More)
Biometric computing is a technique that uses physiological and behavioral characteristics of persons to identify and authenticate individuals. Due to the increasing demand on security, privacy and anti-terrorism, biometric applications represent the rapidly growing computing workloads. However, very few results on the execution characteristics of these(More)

Melanin-concentrating hormone (MCH) is a neuropeptide that plays an important role in several physiological processes. It activates two G protein-coupled receptors (GPCRs), MCH1R and MCH2R, of which MCH1R seems to be a key regulator of food intake. By using HEK293T cells stably transfected with Flag-tagged rat MCH1R, we investigated the mechanism underlying(More)
The last few years have seen the use of photo response non-uniformity noise (PRNU), a unique fingerprint of imaging sensors, in various digital forensic applications such as source device identification, content integrity verification and authentication. However, the use of a colour filter array for capturing only one of the three colour components per(More)
