3-D segmentation and volume estimation of radiologic images by a novel, feature driven, region growing technique
Magnetic Resonance (MR) imaging is a 3-D, multi-slice, radiological technique that acquires multiple intensities corresponding to each voxel. The transverse relaxation time, T$\sb1$, and the axial relaxation time, T$\sb2$, ...
A phase sensitivity based method for prediction of modes of behavior in quadrupedal locomotion
The objective of this study is development of prediction methods for characterizing the electrical behavior of ring type central pattern generators (CPGs). A mathematical model of the prototypical bursting neuron R15 from ...
Binaural localization using interaural cues
Major nuclei of the superior olivary complex--the lateral superior olive (LSO) and the medial superior olive (MSO) are presumed to play a major role in the localization of sound signals using interaural level and interaural ...
Models of electrical activity, calcium concentration, and synaptic plasticity in Aplysia neurons
Mathematical models of two Aplysia neurons simulate salient features of the electrical and chemical activity of these neurons. First, the endogenous burster R15 was modeled as a Hodgkin-Huxley (HH) type membrane equivalent ...
Issues in myoelectric teleoperation of complex artificial hands
This dissertation introduces a novel method of teleoperation of complex anthropomorphic robotic hands: converting the myoelectric signal generated by an operator's muscles during movement into robot commands replicating ...
Wavelet-based deconvolution for ill-conditioned systems
This thesis proposes a new approach to wavelet-based image deconvolution that comprises Fourier-domain system inversion followed by wavelet-domain noise suppression. In contrast to other wavelet-based deconvolution approaches, ...
