Stream segregation on a single electrode as a function of pulse rate in cochlear implant listeners.
(J Acoust Soc Am, 2012-12)
While cochlear implants (CIs) usually provide high levels of speech recognition in quiet, speech recognition in noise remains challenging. To overcome these difficulties, it is important to understand how implanted listeners ...
Comparative performance of multiview stereoscopic and mammographic display modalities for breast lesion detection.
(Med Phys, 2011-04)
PURPOSE: Mammography is known to be one of the most difficult radiographic exams to interpret. Mammography has important limitations, including the superposition of normal tissue that can obscure a mass, chance alignment ...
The effects of osmotic stress on the structure and function of the cell nucleus.
(J Cell Biochem, 2010-02-15)
Osmotic stress is a potent regulator of the normal function of cells that are exposed to osmotically active environments under physiologic or pathologic conditions. The ability of cells to alter gene expression and metabolic ...
Deposition of silver nanoparticles in geochemically heterogeneous porous media: predicting affinity from surface composition analysis.
(Environ Sci Technol, 2011-06-15)
The transport of uncoated silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in a porous medium composed of silica glass beads modified with a partial coverage of iron oxide (hematite) was studied and compared to that in a porous medium composed ...
Bayesian Spatial Quantile Regression.
(J Am Stat Assoc, 2011-03)
Tropospheric ozone is one of the six criteria pollutants regulated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency under the Clean Air Act and has been linked with several adverse health effects, including mortality. ...
Mechanical constraints enhance electrical energy densities of soft dielectrics
(APPLIED PHYSICS LETTERS, 2011-10-24)
An efficient finite element method for embedded interface problems
(International Journal for Numerical Methods in Engineering, 2009-04-09)
A stabilized finite element method based on the Nitsche technique for enforcing constraints leads to an efficient computational procedure for embedded interface problems. We consider cases in which the jump of a field across ...
Coordinated analysis of delayed sprites with high-speed images and remote electromagnetic fields
(Journal of Geophysical Research Atmospheres, 2008-10-27)
Simultaneous measurements of high-altitude optical emissions and magnetic fields produced by sprite-associated lightning discharges enable a close examination of the link between low-altitude lightning processes and high-altitude ...
(Opt Express, 2009-07-20)
Compressive sampling enables signal reconstruction using less than one measurement per reconstructed signal value. Compressive measurement is particularly useful in generating multidimensional images from lower dimensional ...
Optimized approach to decision fusion of heterogeneous data for breast cancer diagnosis.
(Med Phys, 2006-08)
As more diagnostic testing options become available to physicians, it becomes more difficult to combine various types of medical information together in order to optimize the overall diagnosis. To improve diagnostic performance, ...
