memory cell

One bit of memory. In dynamic RAM memory, a cell is made up of one transistor and one capacitor. In static RAM memory, a cell is made up of about five transistors. See memory chip.

Then, identifying which cells were part of the memory-making process (which they did with the help of a glowing green protein designed to literally light up when cells are activated), they were able to artificially trigger those specific memories again later, using laser light to activate the memory cells.
In the past, a typical planar TLC memory cell could endure no more than 500 or 1,000 write cycles.
(iv) [IL10.sup.+] Breg memory cells = [CD19.sup.+][CD24.sup.hi][CD27.sup.+] [IL10.sup.+]
Therefore, increasing the number of memory cells to increase the amount of memory costs a lot, but a smaller cell number will bring a lower recognition rate, so we propose an architecture named LSTMP, which can not only improve the accuracy, but also effectively reduce the computations.
Among a subset of 25 patients, omental metastases biopsies indicated CD8+ T cells and memory cells were present in the tumors after NACT.
And 10 of 11 patients who had previously undergone CAR-T cell therapy with a mixed bag of engineered T cells were in remission after being treated with just the engineered memory cells, Riddell reported.
Some factors that contribute to memory T-cell maintenance are the cytokines interleukin 12 (IL-12) and IL-15, and also IL-7, which plays an essential role in the maintenance of [CD8.sup.+] memory cells. These cytokines induce the proliferation and antiapoptotic mechanisms of memory T cells, allowing them to survive for extended periods (7).
Intel says the architecture "creates a three-dimensional checkerboard where memory cells sit at the intersection of word lines and bit lines, allowing the cells to be addressed individually." Perpendicular conductors connect 128 billion densely packed memory cells, with each memory cell storing a single bit of data.
An increase in circulating antibodies could significantly decrease the length of an illness, may indicated an increase in memory cells created during the infection which would have implications on the potential to be sickened by reinfection.
SAM stores data as a series of memory cells that can only be accessed sequentially (like a cassette tape).
The other is possibly after some rather late nights out in Hamburg - I'll say no more - the old memory cells clearly don't function very well.
Guthrie failed to mention one smell that has remained in my memory cells for at least 50 years.
