Vesicular glutamate transporter 3 (VGLUT3) plays an important role in hearing, and VGLUT3 knockout mice are deaf. However, the mechanisms whereby VGLUT3 exerts its effects in the cochlea are not well established. Elucidating the developmental and aging dynamics of VGLUT3 localization and expression in the cochlea would aid a functional understanding of(More)
To gain additional insight into how a birdsong is learned, we compared the songs of Bengalese finch males that were deafened early in development or raised without tutors to control finches that learned songs from adult models. Fewer note types and a more variable number of notes per bout were observed in untutored male songs, and no audible songs were(More)
OBJECTIVE This systematic review aimed to assess the effectiveness of repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) treatment for chronic tinnitus. Data Sources Relevant electronic databases and a reference list of articles published up to January 2012 were searched. Randomized controlled clinical trials of all types of rTMS treatment for patients(More)
Embedded systems are playing an increasingly important role in control engineering. Despite their popularity, embedded systems are generally subject to resource constraints and it is therefore difficult to build complex control systems on embedded platforms. Traditionally, the design and implementation of control systems are often separated, which causes(More)
The benefit of offloading applications from smart-phones to cloud servers is undermined by the significant energy consumption in data transmission. Most previous approaches attempt to improve the energy efficiency only by choosing a more energy efficient network. However, we find that for computer vision applications, pre-processing the data before(More)
The complexity of real-world industrial control systems is growing rapidly. This raises significant challenges for the use of embedded systems in control applications, since embedded platforms are generally resource limited. In this work we develop a Scilab/Scicos based embedded controller on which various control software can be easily modeled, simulated,(More)
This paper presents a novel multi-view dense point cloud generation algorithm based on low-altitude remote sensing images. The proposed method was designed to be especially effective in enhancing the density of point clouds generated by Multi-View Stereo (MVS) algorithms. To overcome the limitations of MVS and dense matching algorithms, an expanded patch(More)
Songbirds are increasingly used as an experimentally tractable system to study the neurobiological underpinnings of vocal learning. To gain additional insights into how birdsongs are learned, we compared the size of HVC, the high vocal center for song production, and its ultrastructural or electrophysiological properties between the normally reared(More)
Scilab is a free and open source alternative to commercial scientific software packages for numerical computations. It provides an open programming environment along with a large number of powerful primitives. To realize the full potential of Scilab in embedded systems, this paper presents programming techniques essential for using Scilab in the ARM Linux(More)
