Objective/hypothesis: We hypothised that frequency and intensity of stimulation somehow relate with each other. Our goal was to select the optimal frequency with low intensity for PD. We clarified the importance of age in the effect of rTMS.... Van Merhaegen-Wieleman, A., Parys, E., De Keyser, J., Baeken, C., 2016. Bilateral low frequency ... In this study we confirmed the importance of the intensity of the treatment with rTMS, which may differ according to the frequency of stimulations. The effect of rTMS develops slowly and its effect is maintained for months. We observed a strong age dependency in the effect of rTMS, which may indicate the need for more frequent treatment with rTMS in patients over 65 yrs than in the younger group of age. The longevity of the effect is not only, explained by the modification of the brain plasticity or the induction of the dopamine release in the striatum by rTMS. Although, the role of the prolonged elevation of BDNF and production of progenitor cells in the brain may be an important mechanism in the effect of rTMS....

In the article we calculated and discussed the energy cost for performing software updates in LPWAN networks LoRa, SigFox and IEEE-802.15.4g. The energy cost is determined for three different scenario's: 1) a full system update; b) an application update; c) a MAC update. In each scenario, different update methods are considered.
The excel file contains the raw input data (first sheet) gathered from datasheets, standard specifications, as well as the transaction sizes in different scenario's using different update method. The transaction sizes were determined by examining the sizes of the object files and firmware in the different update scenario's and for the different update methods. The three other sheets contain the processed data presented and discussed in the article. The excel also contains VB macro's to calculate the energy consumption in the downlink for a particular transaction size (i.e. software update in our case) and technology. They are used in the last three sheets in the excel workbook.
