A Probabilistic Model for Estimating the Depth and Threshold Temperature of C-fiber Nociceptors
The subjective experience of thermal pain follows the detection and encoding of noxious stimuli by primary afferent neurons called nociceptors. However, nociceptor morphology has been hard to access and the mechanisms of ...
Cerebellar Nuclear Neurons Use Time and Rate Coding to Transmit Purkinje Neuron Pauses
Neurons of the cerebellar nuclei convey the final output of the cerebellum to their targets in various parts of the brain. Within the cerebellum their direct upstream connections originate from inhibitory Purkinje neurons. ...
Length of polynomials over finite groups
We study the length of polynomials over finite simple non-Abelian groups needed to realize Boolean functions. We apply the results for bounding the length of 5-permutation branching programs recognizing a Boolean set. ...
Pico without public keys
(Springer-Verlag, (Berlin-Heidelberg), 2015-11-25)
Pico is a user authentication system that does not require remembering secrets. It is based on a personal handheld token that holds the user’s credentials and that is unlocked by a “personal aura” generated by digital ...
'Chunks, schemata and retrieval structures: Past and current computational models
A recurring question in psychology and cognitive science concerns the expression of theories that are internally consistent and testable. Natural language is unsatisfactory, as theoretical concepts and mechanisms are not ...
‘Teach Me - Show Me’- End-user personalisation of a smart home and companion robot
Care issues and costs associated with an increasing elderly population is becoming a major concern for many countries. The use of assistive robots in ‘smart-home’ environments has been suggested as a possible partial ...
