    Diagnosis and Treatment of Lactose Intolerance in Children and Adults: What Has Changed during the Past 50 Years

    by M S Reshetova, K V Ivashkin*, V R Grechishnikova and O A Shtyrliaeva
    IJCMB 2022, Vol 2, Issue 1, 1-7, https://doi.org/10.35745/ijcmb2022v02.01.0001 - Published on March 30, 2022

    Abstract

    Breastfeeding is essential for the life of the mammal on this planet. From the first weeks after birth, mother's milk provides the child's body with the necessary macro-and microelements, vitamins, and proteins. It contributes to the formation of immunity and supplies the necessary environment for the formation of the future gut microbiota. To preserve the energy of the body, the mechanism of breaking the trophic bond between the mother and her children has been evolutionarily developed. Genetic...

    Ordinal Pattern-Based Dissimilarity Measure for Slow Cortical Potential Training in Stroke

    by Wenbin Shi*, Chuting Zhang,, Chien-Hung Yeh and Heng Liu
    IJCMB 2022, Vol 2, Issue 1, 8-15, https://doi.org/10.35745/ijcmb2022v02.01.0002 - Published on March 30, 2022

    Abstract

    Biological signals, such as EEG and ECG, generate complex fluctuations in correspondence with the underlying system dynamics. In this study, we propose a dissimilarity quantification, which is an improvement of information-based similarity for capturing the features of underlying dynamics from positivity or negativity trials in the neurofeedback training of chronic stroke patients. Simulated Gaussian white and pink noises are used to evaluate the validity of this measure by different embedding d...

    Pulsatile Tinnitus Caused by Highly Vascularized Fibrous Dysplasia of Temporal Bone with Centrally Located Fibrous Cyst

    by Yue-Lin Hsieh and Wuqing Wang*
    IJCMB 2022, Vol 2, Issue 1, 16-20, https://doi.org/10.35745/ijcmb2022v02.01.0003 - Published on March 30, 2022

    Abstract

    To date, the management and mechanism of pulsatile tinnitus (PT) caused by fibrous dysplasia (FD) of the temporal bone have not been discussed in detail. Therefore, this study is carried out to introduce PT secondary to monostotic temporal bone FD with cystic and lytic development in simultaneity complicated by the expansile bone lesion compressing over the sigmoid sinus. A 46-year-old female patient diagnosed with FD presented with severe persistent PT seeking medical assistance. Radiologic mod...

    Exploring Interactions between Physiological Mechanisms and Music Riffs: Power beyond Music

    by Zhao-Wei Chen, Bess Ma Fabinal Serafico, Men-Tzung Lo and Chen Lin*
    IJCMB 2022, Vol 2, Issue 1, 21-26, https://doi.org/10.35745/ijcmb2022v02.01.0004 - Published on March 30, 2022

    Abstract

    This study aims to discuss whether the baroreflex is regulated by the music with 0.1 Hz oscillations and determine which musical component most elicits the baroreflex control. We had the subjects listen to the music with 0.1 Hz oscillation (in either chords or rhythm) and the same music without 0.1 Hz oscillation. The power of the extracted components up to 0.1 Hz significantly increased blood pressure (BP) at p < 0.05regardless of which music they listened to. However, the coherence between BP ...

    Implementation of a Four-Class Motor Imagery Brain Computer Interface Using Long Short-Term Memory Neural Network

    by Hao-Teng Hsu*, Kuo-Kai Shyu and Po-Lei Lee
    IJCMB 2022, Vol 2, Issue 1, 27-32, https://doi.org/10.35745/ijcmb2022v02.01.0005 - Published on March 30, 2022

    Abstract

    We have developed multi-channel dry-electrode electroencephalography (EEG) system to implement a brain computer interface (BCI) and discriminate four-class motor imagery signals. The EEG channels recorded from Fz, F3, F4, C3, Cz, C4, P3, and P4 positions, according to the international 10‒20 EEG system, were acquired and wirelessly transmitted to a personal computer. Five subjects were recruited to perform right hand, left hand, right foot, and left foot imagery movements with 60 trials in each ...

    Analysis of Vortex-Generation Using Adaptive Finite Element Method to Simulate Hemodynamics of Sigmoid Sinus Diverticulum

    by Hui-Fang Lin and Yi-Chern Hsieh*
    IJCMB 2022, Vol 2, Issue 1, 33-40, https://doi.org/10.35745/ijcmb2022v02.01.0006 - Published on March 30, 2022

    Abstract

    In various practical physical problems, the formation of the vortical flow inside the flow field has different effects and consequences. The diverticular vortex has been considered one of the causative factors of venous pulsatile tinnitus (PT). Thus, we aimed to solve the diverticular vortex by using the adaptive finite element method. We investigated the physical phenomena of the diverticular flow field generated during the cardiac cycles and transient changes of various physical phenomena befo...
