High performance and low complexity decoding light-weight video coding with motion estimation and mode decision at decoder

Light-weight video coding (LVC) follows distributed video coding (DVC) and designs to move computational complexity from the encoder to the decoder, thus making a low computational complexity encoder. In traditional video coding, the high computational complexity encoder algorithms, where motion estimation and mode decision, are the main transferred objects. In order to alleviate ...

Movement amplitude on the Functional Re-adaptive Exercise Device: deep spinal muscle activity and movement control

Purpose Lumbar multifidus (LM) and transversus abdominis (TrA) show altered motor control, and LM is atrophied, in people with low-back pain (LBP). The Functional Re-adaptive Exercise Device (FRED) involves cyclical lower-limb movement against minimal resistance in an upright posture. It has been shown to recruit LM and TrA automatically, and may have potential as an intervention ...

Characterization of MHC class I in a long distance migratory wader, the Icelandic black-tailed godwit

The major histocompatibility complex (MHC) encodes proteins that are central for antigen presentation and pathogen elimination. MHC class I (MHC-I) genes have attracted a great deal of interest among researchers in ecology and evolution and have been partly characterized in a wide range of bird species. So far, the main focus has been on species within the bird orders Galliformes ...

A rotating annulus driven by localized convective forcing: a new atmosphere-like experiment

We present an experimental study of flows in a cylindrical rotating annulus convectively forced by local heating in an annular ring at the bottom near the external wall and via a cooled circular disk near the axis at the top surface of the annulus. This new configuration is distinct from the classical thermally driven annulus analogue of the atmosphere circulation, in which thermal ...

Impaired Motor Coordination and Learning in Mice Lacking Anoctamin 2 Calcium-Gated Chloride Channels

Neurons communicate through excitatory and inhibitory synapses. Both lines of communication are adjustable and allow the fine tuning of signal exchange required for learning processes in neural networks. Several distinct modes of plasticity modulate glutamatergic and GABAergic synapses in Purkinje cells of the cerebellar cortex to promote motor control and learning. In the present ...

Trombo-embolieën bij angina pectoris

Bij het lichamelijk onderzoek ziet de huisarts een niet-zieke man zonder koorts, met een bloeddruk van 120/70 mmHg en een regulaire pols.

Anterior segment optical coherence tomography and retained vegetal intraocular foreign body masquerading as chronic anterior uveitis

Background The purpose of this single case report was to report the use of anterior segment optical coherence tomography for the diagnosis and management of a retained vegetal intraocular foreign body. Results A 23-year-old otherwise healthy male presented with a progressive vision loss in the right eye (RE). He reported a mild ocular trauma with a tree leaf 1 year ago followed by ...

Hartfalen bij kwetsbare oudere

Johanna Tolberg is bekend met wisselende mate van hartfalen, overgehouden aan een voorwand infarct in het verleden met permanent atriumfibrilleren, COPD Gold II, gonartrose en stadium IV chronische nierinsufficiëntie. Door een zomergriep met de bijkomende renale anemie is zij afgelopen zomer heftig benauwd opgenomen met acute decompensatio cordis. Zij had daarbij een RR 100/60, ...

Splenic Ly6Chi monocytes contribute to adverse late post-ischemic left ventricular remodeling in heme oxygenase-1 deficient mice

Heme oxygenase-1 (Hmox1) is a stress-inducible protein crucial in heme catabolism. The end products of its enzymatic activity possess anti-oxidative, anti-apoptotic and anti-inflammatory properties. Cardioprotective effects of Hmox1 were demonstrated in experimental models of myocardial infarction (MI). Nevertheless, its importance in timely resolution of post-ischemic inflammation ...

Isolation and Characterization of Phenol-Degrading Psychrotolerant Yeasts

In this study, the potential of selected psychrotolerant yeast strains for phenol biodegradation was studied. From 39 strains isolated from soil and water samples from Rucianka peat bog, three psychrotolerant yeast strains, A011, B021, and L012, showed the ability to degrade phenol. The result shows that all three yeast strains could degrade phenol at 500 and 750 mg l−1 ...

HellRank: a Hellinger-based centrality measure for bipartite social networks

Measuring centrality in a social network, especially in bipartite mode, poses many challenges, for example, the requirement of full knowledge of the network topology, and the lack of properly detecting top-k behavioral representative users. To overcome the above mentioned challenges, we propose HellRank, an accurate centrality measure for identifying central nodes in bipartite ...

Automated mask generation for PIV image analysis based on pixel intensity statistics

The measurement of displacements near the vicinity of surfaces involves advanced PIV algorithms requiring accurate knowledge of object boundaries. These data typically come in the form of a logical mask, generated manually or through automatic algorithms. The automatic detection of masks usually necessitates special features or reference points such as bright lines, high contrast ...

Ficolin-2 Gene rs7851696 Polymorphism is Associated with Delayed Graft Function and Acute Rejection in Kidney Allograft Recipients

Ficolin-2 is an activator of the complement system that acts via the lectin pathway. Complement activation plays a substantial role in the renal injury inherent to kidney transplantation. In this study, we examined the associations between ficolin-2 gene polymorphisms in exon 8 and kidney allograft function. This study comprised 270 Caucasian deceased-donor renal transplant ...

On pain experience, multidisciplinary integration and the level-laden conception of science

Multidisciplinary models aggregating ‘lower-level’ biological and ‘higher-level’ psychological and social determinants of a phenomenon raise a puzzle. How is the interaction between the physical, the psychological and the social conceptualized and explained? Using biopsychosocial models of pain as an illustration, I argue that these models are in fact level-neutral compilations of ...
