Bayesian crack detection in ultra high resolution multimodal images of paintings
(2013 18th International Conference on Digital Signal Processing, DSP 2013, 2013-12-06)
The preservation of our cultural heritage is of paramount importance. Thanks to recent developments in digital acquisition techniques, powerful image analysis algorithms are developed which can be useful non-invasive tools ...
Action video game playing is associated with improved visual sensitivity, but not alterations in visual sensory memory.
(Atten Percept Psychophys, 2013-08)
Action video game playing has been experimentally linked to a number of perceptual and cognitive improvements. These benefits are captured through a wide range of psychometric tasks and have led to the proposition that action ...
Cognitive Processes in Response to Goal Failure: A Study of Ruminative Thought and its Affective Consequences.
(J Soc Clin Psychol, 2013-05-01)
Failure to make progress toward personal goals can lead to negative affective states, such as depression and anxiety. Past research suggests that rumination in response to goal failure may prolong and intensify those acute ...
A pilot randomized controlled trial with paroxetine for subthreshold PTSD in Operation Enduring Freedom/Operation Iraqi Freedom era veterans.
(Psychiatry Res, 2013-04-30)
Subthreshold posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD) is associated with increased risk for suicidality, depression, and functional impairment. We thus conducted a small (N=12) pilot randomized controlled trial (RCT) with paroxetine ...
Effects of chronic mild traumatic brain injury on white matter integrity in iraq and afghanistan war veterans
(Human Brain Mapping, 2013-11-01)
Mild traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a common source of morbidity from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. With no overt lesions on structural MRI, diagnosis of chronic mild TBI in military veterans relies on obtaining an ...
Man Is by Nature a Political Animal: Evolution, Biology, and Politics
(PERSPECTIVES ON POLITICS, 2013-06)
Efficient Gaussian process regression for large datasets.
Gaussian processes are widely used in nonparametric regression, classification and spatiotemporal modelling, facilitated in part by a rich literature on their theoretical properties. However, one of their practical limitations ...
Multiscale dictionary learning for estimating conditional distributions
(Advances in Neural Information Processing Systems, 2013-01-01)
Nonparametric estimation of the conditional distribution of a response given highdimensional features is a challenging problem. It is important to allow not only the mean but also the variance and shape of the response density ...
Genopolitics and the science of genetics
(American Political Science Review, 2013-04-01)
In an earlier article we challenged the findings of Fowler and Dawes (FD) that two genes predict voter turnout as part of a more general critique of genopolitics. FD now acknowledge that their finding of a significant direct ...
Randomized controlled trial of universal postnatal nurse home visiting: impact on emergency care.
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVES: Although nurse home visiting has proven efficacious with small samples, scaling up to community populations with diverse families has not yet proven effective. The Durham Connects program was developed ...
