  • Patent number: 7009227
    Abstract: A CMOS imager with two adjacent pixel active area regions without the presence of an intervening trench isolation region that typically separates two adjacent pixels and their associated photodiodes is provided. The shared active area region isolates the two adjacent photodiodes and provides good substrate to surface pinned layer contact without the presence of n? type dopant ions and due to the presence of p-type dopant ions. As a result, the size of the imager can be reduced and the photodiodes of the two adjacent pixels have increased capacitance.

  • Patent number: 6903188
    Abstract: The present invention has found that the Mts1 protein is expressed in white matter astrocytes in the spinal cord. Such expression is significantly increased following sciatic nerve injury or dorsal root injury, particularly in astrocytes surrounding dorsal funiculus containing the central processes of the injured primary sensory neurons. The present invention has further demonstrated that Mts1 proteins administered extracellularly promote neurite outgrowth from neuronal cells. Based on these surprising findings, the present invention provides compositions and methods that are useful for the treatment of various neurological conditions characterized by death, degeneration or injury of neuronal cells.

  • Publication number: 20050087679
    Abstract: A CMOS image sensor obtains color through the use of two or three superposed layers. Each pixel in the image sensor includes a plurality of superposed photosensitive p-n junctions with individual charge integration regions. The combination of each of the superposed layers provides increased sensitivity and resolution of a single chip color imager.

  • Publication number: 20050083421
    Abstract: A method for operating a pixel circuit is disclosed, wherein a saturation control signal is used to control the photoresponse of four-transistor (4-T), five-transistor (5-T) and shared floating diffusion pixel circuits. The saturation control signal is a variable voltage signal, and is transmitted to a transfer transistor or anti-blooming transistor, wherein the signal opens or partially opens the transistor to allow excess electrons to flow from the photodiode region during an integration period. As a result, the effective dynamic range of the pixel circuit can be extended.

  • Publication number: 20050069537
    Abstract: The present invention relates to compounds capable of stimulating survival of cells presenting the neural cell adhesion molecule (NCAM) or an NCAM-ligand (counter-receptor), such as neurons. Further, the present invention relates to the use of pharmaceutical compositions and medicaments in the treatment or protection of cells presenting NCAM or NCAM ligands. More particularly the invention describes the use of a compound comprising a peptide comprising at least 5 contiguous amino acid residues from an amino acid sequence of NCAM, a fragment thereof, or a variant thereof or a mimic thereof, for the preparation of a medicament for preventing cell death of cells presenting said NCAM or an NCAM ligand.

  • Publication number: 20040227060
    Abstract: A CMOS Active Pixel Sensor (APS) uses a pinned photodiode as a photoreceptor and negative-channel metal-oxide semiconductor (NMOS) transistors in the sample and hold and reset circuits of the frame shutter. The pinned photodiode increases the quantum efficiency and reduces the dark current. The NMOS transistors in the frame shutter increase the fill factor and reduce the pixel pitch.
