AIMS/HYPOTHESIS γ-Aminobutyric acid (GABA) is a signalling molecule in the interstitial space in pancreatic islets. We examined the expression and function of the GABA signalling system components in human pancreatic islets from normoglycaemic and type 2 diabetic individuals. METHODS Expression of GABA signalling system components was studied by(More)
—Room reverberation creates a major challenge to speech segregation. We propose a computational auditory scene analysis approach to monaural segregation of reverberant voiced speech, which performs multipitch tracking of reverberant mixtures and supervised classification. Speech and nonspeech models are separately trained, and each learns to map from a set(More)
With the ever-increasing development and usage of digital technologies and digital data, the question of protecting intellectual property of digital data has becoming more and more important. Digital watermarking, which allows to embed copyright information into the digital data, has become more and more indispensable. Due to its characteristics, one of the(More)
OBJECTIVE To investigate the ability of high-field (9.4 T) magnetic resonance (MR) imaging to delineate porcine knee meniscal tissue structure and meniscal tears. MATERIALS AND METHODS Porcine knees were obtained from a local abattoir, and eight medial menisci with no visible defects were dissected. Lesions simulating longitudinal tears were created on(More)
Auxin is important in the development of plant vascular tissues. Reconnection of vascular bundles between scion and stock is a primary aim of grafting, and polar auxin transport greatly affects the formation of a continuous vascular model. The role of auxin in the process of graft-union development was studied by grafting the seedlings of Arabidopsis(More)
BACKGROUND The fluid load support fraction (W(F)/W(T)) can be used to define the mechanical contribution of the interstitial fluid (W(F)) to the total force (W(T)) in the deformation of cartilage. Traditionally, W(F)/W(T) is calculated using complex experimental setups or time-consuming micromechanical poroelastic Finite Element (FE) simulations. AIM To(More)
This paper proposes an enhanced use-misuse case model that allows both safety and security requirements to be captured during requirements elicitation. The proposed model extends the concept of misuse case by incorporating vulnerable use case and abuse case notations and relations that allows understanding and modeling different attackers and abusers(More)
