Top-down and bottom-up competition in visual stimuli processing

Limited attention capacity results that not all the stimuli present in the visual field are equally processed. While processing of salient stimuli is automatically boosted by bottom-up attention, processing of task-relevant stimuli can be boosted volitionally by top-down attention. Usually, both top-down and bottom-up influences are present simultaneously, which creates a competition between these two types of attention. We examined this competition using both behavioral and

DESIGN OF BACKING-UP FUZZY CONTROLLERS BASED ON VARIABLE UNIVERSE OF DISCOURSE

Fuzzy controllers with variable universe of discourse (VUD) have been applied in many fields of intelligent controlling because of their high-accuracy performance. This paper provides a lookup table method to design backing-up fuzzy controllers based on VUD. By setting a set of random start points, input–output data pairs are obtained using test-driving method. One data pair defines one fuzzy rule and also assigns the strength of every fuzzy rule. Conflicting fuzzy rule groups are integrated

BOTTOM-UP APPROACH FOR BEHAVIOR ACQUISITION OF AGENTS EQUIPPED WITH MULTI-SENSORS

While the top-down approach of artificial intelligence encounters the frame problem, the bottom-up approach based on a creature’s evolution and behavior is effective for robotic design of intellectual behavior in a specific field. We propose the Evolutionary Behavior Table System (EBTS) using a simple genetic algorithm (SGA) to acquire the autonomous cooperative behavior of multi-agents as the bottom-up approach. In EBTS, a set of rules is expressed as a table composed of sensor input columns

A NEW METHOD TO ASSESS PERCEIVED WELL-BEING AMONG ELDERLY PEOPLE – A FOLLOW-UP STUDY

This is a follow-up study to a previous experiment that evaluated the feasibility of a simple monitoring device, Con-Dis, in assessing perceived well-being (PWB) among elderly people. Additionally, in the present study Con-Dis was used at the same time as blood pressure and heart rate monitors and pedometers to see the possible correlation between PWB, blood pressure, heart rate, and time spent on outdoor activity.

A twin pregnancy with a hydatidiform mole and a coexisting live fetus: prenatal diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up

Twin molar pregnancy with a hydatidiform mole and a coexisting live fetus is a rare form of gestational trophoblastic disease associated with an increased risk of obstetric complications and poor perinatal outcome. Prenatal diagnosis is essential for couple counseling and follow-up in Tertiary Reference Centers.

Following the theory of time series convergence, documented in Bernard and Durlauf (1996) and Greasley and Oxley (1997), more robust unit root tests, based on the Fourier nonlinearity and instantaneous breaks proposed in Furuoka (2017), are used in investigating the convergence of each pair of a West African

Since the pendulum system has a typical nonlinear instable model, the control problem is achieved using the Astrom-Furuta energy control strategy. To overcome the complexities for the design and the real-Time implementation of the controller of the nonlinear system, FPGA and Real-Time Modules of LabVIEW software are used. A validation test is

Pseudomonas putida strain (HM346961) was isolated from a consortium of bacteria acclimatized to unleaded gasoline-contaminated water. The consortium can efficiently remove benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylene (BTEX) isomers, and a similar capability was observed with the P. putida strain. Proteome of this strain showed certain similarities with that of other strains exposed to the hydrocarbon com­pounds. Furthermore, the toluene di-oxygenase (tod) gene was up-regulated in P. putida

The conditional posterior densities of parameters are utilized to determine the marginal posterior densities using the Gibbs sampler. An efficient one step ahead predictive density mechanism is developed to further the state of art in prediction-based decision making.

DETECTION OF VOLATILE ORGANIC COMPOUNDS BASED ON OPTICAL FIBRE USING NANOSTRUCTURED FILMS

reflection scheme was used, so the intensity modulated reflected signal is registered in order to study its response. Changes up to 3 dB in the reflected optical power were measured.

POLYMER OPTICAL FIBRE FOR IN SITU MONITORING OF GAMMA RADIATION PROCESSES

Poly Methyl MethAcrylate (PMMA) based plastic optical fibres offer a low cost radiation monitoring solution with a wide dose range, capable of providing real-time, online information. The sensitivity of the fibre to ionising radiation is shown to be dependant on wavelength, with the sensitivity increasing with decreasing wavelength, and so by carefully selecting the monitoring wavelength, the desired sensitivity and dose range can be achieved. The fibres exhibit high sensitivity, up to 0.6dBm

Enterobacter asburiae KUNi5, a Nickel Resistant Bacterium for Possible Bioremediation of Nickel Contaminated Sites

Nickel resistant bacterial strain Enterobacter asburiae KUNi5 was isolated and showed resistance up to 15 mM and could remove Ni opti­mally better at 37°C and pH 7. Maximum removal was found at initial concentration of 0.5 to 2 mM, however, growth and Ni removal were affected by other heavy metals. Major amount of the metal was accumulated in the membrane fractions and certain negatively charged groups were found responsible for Ni binding. KUNi5 could also produce 1-aminocyclopropane-1

Viral Infection of the Heart: Pathogenesis and Diagnosis

Viral infections of the heart cause serious clinical problems, either as infectious myocarditis, which usually is a consequence of acute infection or as idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, resulting rather from a chronic infection. This minireview presents an up-to-date view on patho­mechanisms of viral infection of the heart tissues, the role of immune system in controlling infectious process at its various stages and current possibilities of recognizing viral infection of the heart with
