Phase dependence of the termination of absence seizures by cerebellar input to thalamocortical networks
Absence seizures are the most common form of epilepsy in children. They start and finish abruptly, last for 10–20 seconds and can be detected by generalised spike-and-wave discharges (GSWDs) in the electroencephalogram. ...
Unsupervised learning of sparse spatio-temporal receptive fields through inhibitory plasticity; A model of the mammalian early visual system
Receptive fields of V1 simple cells in mammalian visual cortex are characterised as localized, oriented bandpass filters that respond to oriented contrast edges of a specific spatial scale in a particular area of the visual ...
The influence of diffusion cell type and experimental temperature on machine learning models of skin permeability
Objectives The aim of this study was to use Gaussian process regression (GPR) methods to quantify the effect of experimental temperature (Texp) and choice of diffusion cell on model quality and performance. Methods Data ...
Preliminary Implementation of the Next Generation Cannulation Simulator
(Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers Inc., 2019-11-14)
Extracorporeal Membrane Oxygenation (ECMO) is a highly complex/critical lifesaving procedure known to support patients with cardiac and respiratory issues. Patients on ECMO are monitored 24/7 by a team of highly trained ...
Growth rules for repair of asynchronous irregular network models following peripheral lesions
Several homeostatic mechanisms enable the brain to maintain desired levels of neuronal activity after disruptive changes to synaptic inputs. One of these homeostatic mechanisms, structural plasticity, can restore activity ...
Incidental Lymphoplasmacytic Lymphoma Diagnosed Following Robotic-Assisted Laparoscopic Prostatectomy for Prostate Cancer
We report a case of prostatic lymphoma of the Walden-ström's macroglobulinemia subtype in a 64-year-old gentleman who underwent a robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy following lower urinary tract symptoms and high ...
A comparison of methods for traversing regions of non-convexity in optimization problems
This paper considers the well-known problem of dealing with non-convexity during the minimization of a non-linear function f(x) by Newton-like methods. The proposal made here involves a curvilinear search along an approximation ...
From gloom to doom: Financial loss and negative affect prime risk averse preferences
Previous research has shown that risk preferences are sensitive to the financial domain in which they are framed. In the present study we explore whether the effect of valence priming on risk taking is moderated by the ...

Temporal Dynamism in Country-of-Origin Effect: The Malleability of Italians’ Perceptions Regarding the British Sixties
Purpose: The purpose of this paper is to enrich country of origin (COO) effect in international marketing theory by adding the understanding of temporal dynamism into COO research. Design/methodology/approach: Utilizing a ...
