  • Patent number: 8573399
    Abstract: A material handling device includes a base, a side, a support member, and a resilient biasing member. The side extends from the base and defines a device interior with the base. The support member is disposed within the device interior proximate the side. The support member includes a cam and is rotatable between a material handling device stacking position and a material handling device nesting position. The biasing member is coupled to the side and is configured to engage the cam and thereby urge the support member into one of the stacking and nesting positions. The resilient biasing member is also configured to effect a translation of the support member towards the side as the support member rotates from a position intermediate the stacking and nesting positions to the one of the stacking position and nesting positions.

  • Patent number: 8171192
    Abstract: A method and apparatus for detecting the configuration of a device in a processing system are described. In one embodiment, a page size parameter associated with a memory device is identified. Further, one or more configuration parameters associated with the memory device are also identified, the page size parameter and the configuration parameters enabling access to the memory device. Finally, a request to download application data from the memory device based on the page size parameter and the one or more configuration parameters is transmitted to the memory device.

  • Publication number: 20070010732
    Abstract: Neurovascular uncoupling that causes fMRI data to underestimate viable neuronal activity in the brain is detected and indicated to assist in pre-surgical planning. Tasks associated with the cortical region in question are performed while the fMRI measurement of brain activity is measured and the same tasks are performed while task performance is measured directly. Neurovascular uncoupling is detected and indicated by comparing the results of fMRI measurement and direct measurement.

  • Publication number: 20060058619
    Abstract: A visual defect simulation system receives a functional field map produced by an MRI system that relates locations in a patient's brain to locations in the patient's field of view. Planned medical operations are indicated at locations in the patient's brain and any resulting vision loss is simulated with a revised functional field map. A scene is displayed and an impairment overlay is produced from the revised functional field map that blocks the scene at locations corresponding to simulated vision loss. The overlay is translated over the scene in response to viewer eye movements detected by a vision-tracking system to present a real-time simulation of the resulting vision loss.

  • Publication number: 20050273001
    Abstract: An interactive display interface may import fMRI images, DTI images, MRS images and perfusion images of the brain and selectively display them on top of one another and aligned with an anatomical image of the brain. The transparency of each layered image can be adjusted or turned on or off to assist in the planning of a treatment strategy for a brain tumor or other diseased region in the brain.

  • Patent number: 6144604
    Abstract: A read/write electronic memory bank 10, including a plurality of memory units 22-28 and 12-18 which receive a common clock signal having a repetitive clock cycle and have a common input port 20, 21 and a common output port 30, 31. The units function such that in each clock cycle an input word is written to the memory bank 10 from the input port 20, 21 and an output word is read from the memory bank 10 to the output port 30, 31. Each memory unit 22-28 and 12-18 includes a single-port random-access memory (RAM) device 22-28 and a first-in first-out (FIFO) buffer 12-18, such that when the output word is to be read from the same memory unit 22-28 and 12-18 to which the input word is to be written in a given clock cycle, one of the input and output words is passed between the respective port 20, 21, 30, 31 of the memory bank 10 and the FIFO buffer 12-18, instead of between the respective port 20, 21, 30, 31 of the memory bank 10 and the RAM device 22-28.
