This longitudinal study examined personal-accentuation and contextual-amplification models of pubertal timing. In these models, individual and contextual risk factors during childhood and adolescence can magnify the effects of early or late puberty on depression symptoms that occur years later. The moderating role of prepubertal individual factors(More)
In this paper, we present a new model for the enhancement of noisy and blurred multi-valued images. The proposed model is based on using single vectors of the gradient magnitude and the second derivatives as a manner to relate different colour components of the image. This model can be viewed as a generalization of Bettahar-Stambouli filter to multi-valued(More)

Fusionless devices are currently designed to treat spinal deformities such as scoliosis by the application of a controlled mechanical loading. Growth modulation by dynamic compression was shown to preserve soft tissues. The objective of this in vivo study was to characterize the effect of static vs. dynamic loading on the bone formed during growth(More)
