Brief episodes of momentarily falling asleep - microsleeps - can have fatal consequences, especially in the transportation sector. In this study, the EEG data of eight subjects, while performing a 1-D tracking task, were used to predict imminent microsleeps. A novel algorithm was developed to improve the accuracy of microsleep identification from two independent measures: tracking performance and face-video. The uncertain labels of gold-standard were then pruned out. Additionally, the state of microsleep at 0...

BACKGROUND: Solid variant of papillary thyroid carcinoma is a rare subtype of papillary thyroid carcinoma (PTC) containing a solid component (SC), and thus its cytological and clinicopathological features remain elusive. We examined fine needle aspiration (FNA) cytological features of PTC with variable degrees of SC (20-80% of the tumor)(PTCSC) in comparison to well-differentiated PTC (WPTC). METHODS: Twenty-six cases of PTCSC were histologically stratified into major-SC (SC >50% of the tumor) and minor-SC (<49%) groups...

Photochemically driven molecular motors convert the energy of incident radiation to intramolecular rotational motion. The motor molecules considered here execute four step unidirectional rotational motion. This comprises a pair of successive light induced isomerizations to a metastable state followed by thermal helix inversions. The internal rotation of a large molecular unit required in these steps is expected to be sensitive to both the viscosity of the medium and the volume of the rotating unit. In this work we describe a study of motor motion in both ground and excited states as a function of the size of the rotating units...

BACKGROUND: Aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) accounts for 5% of strokes and carries a poor prognosis. It affects around 6 cases per 100,000 patient years occurring at a relatively young age. METHODS: Common risk factors are the same as for stroke, and only in a minority of the cases, genetic factors can be found. The overall mortality ranges from 32% to 67%, with 10-20% of patients with long-term dependence due to brain damage. An explosive headache is the most common reported symptom, although a wide spectrum of clinical disturbances can be the presenting symptoms...

INTRODUCTION: Malignant pleural effusion (MPE) is determined by the detection of malignant cells in pleural fluid or pleural tissue. Neoplasm of lung, breast, ovary and lymphoma are the causes of more than 75% of MPE. Pleurodesis is a usual technique in the management of MPE to achieve a symphysis between two layers of the pleura, and various chemical agents have been used in an attempt to produce pleurodesis. With regard to complications and limitations of these sclerosing agents, efficacy and safety of povidone-iodine have been investigated in this study...

BACKGROUND: The skin and soft tissues of the face and neck have a rich plexus of dermal-subdermal vessels, which creates the possibility of raising a fasciocutaneous flap based on this vascular supply. A turned in fasciocutaneous island flap (TIFCIF) from an adjacent area of the defect can provide a simple substitute to many complex reconstructive procedures. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Fifteen patients underwent wide excision for oral cancer and upper neck dissection, maintaining bone framework, between August 2010 and June 2014...
