Determinants of synaptic integration and heterogeneity in rebound firing explored with data-driven models of deep cerebellar nucleus cells
Significant inroads have been made to understand cerebellar cortical processing but neural coding at the output stage of the cerebellum in the deep cerebellar nuclei (DCN) remains poorly understood. The DCN are unlikely ...
Clustering predicts memory performance in networks of spiking and non-spiking neurons
The problem we address in this paper is that of finding effective and parsimonious patterns of connectivity in sparse associative memories. This problem must be addressed in real neuronal systems, so that results in ...
STD-dependent and independent encoding of input irregularity as spike rate in a computational model of a cerebellar nucleus neuron
Neurons in the cerebellar nuclei (CN) receive inhibitory inputs from Purkinje cells in the cerebellar cortex and provide the major output from the cerebellum, but their computational function is not well understood. It has ...
Marking complex assignments using peer assessment with an electronic voting system and an automated feedback tool
The work described in this paper relates to the development and use of a range of initiatives in order to mark complex masters' level assignments related to the development of computer web applications. In the past such ...
Developing robust models for favourability analysis
(Association for Computational Linguistics, 2011)
Locating documents carrying positive or negative favourability is an important application within media analysis. This paper presents some empirical results on the challenges facing a machine-learning approach to this kind ...
The longitudinal, chronological case study research strategy : a definition, and an example from IBM Hursley Park
Context: There is surprisingly little empirical software engineering research (ESER) that has analysed and reported the rich, fine-grained behaviour of phenomena over time using qualitative and quantitative data. The ESER ...
Spatio-temporal Environmental Monitoring Systems : A data management and delivery approach based on PostGIS database and Google Maps mashup
A considerable amount of data, including spatial data referring to monitoring locations together with their related attribute time series (as in, for example, rainfall or contaminant concentrations), is usually collected ...
Local Information Maximisation creates Emergent Flocking Behaviour
(MIT Press, 2011)
The three boids rules of alignment, separation and cohesion, introduced by Reynolds to recreate flocking behaviour have become a well known standard to create swarm behaviour. In this paper we want to demonstrate how similar ...
UH Ferret : Implementation of a copy-detection tool
UH Ferret is a fast C++ implementation of a trigram-based copy-detection algorithm. The code forms the base of a graphical user-interface, a web-based server interface, and a ruby gem.
