Diffusion-weighted imaging (DWI) enables non-invasive investigation and characterization of the white matter but suffers from a relatively poor spatial resolution. Increasing the spatial resolution in DWI is challenging with a single-shot EPI acquisition due to the decreased signal-to-noise ratio and T2(∗) relaxation effect amplified with increased echo(More)
Fast magnetic resonance imaging slice acquisition techniques such as single shot fast spin echo are routinely used in the presence of uncontrollable motion. These techniques are widely used for fetal magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and MRI of moving subjects and organs. Although high-quality slices are frequently acquired by these techniques, inter-slice(More)
Neural networks and Neurofuzzy models have been successfully used in the prediction of nonlinear time series. Several learning methods have been introduced to train the Neurofuzzy predictors, such as ANFIS, ASMOD and FUREGA. Many of these methods, constructed over Takagi Sugeno fuzzy inference system, are characterized by high generalization. However, they(More)
Normal brain development is associated with expansion and folding of the cerebral cortex following a highly orchestrated sequence of gyral–sulcal formation. Although several studies have described the evolution of cerebral cortical development ex vivo or ex utero, to date, very few studies have characterized and quantified the gyrification process for the(More)
Rapid and efficient imaging of the brain to monitor brain activity and neural connectivity is performed through functional MRI and diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) using the Echo-planar imaging (EPI) sequence. An entire volume of the brain is imaged by EPI in a few seconds through the measurement of all k-space lines within one repetition time. However, this(More)
Dynamic control of parallel wheeled differential drive mobile robot is considered. The dynamic model is composed of two consecutive parts; kinematic model and equations of linear and angular torques. By transforming dynamic error equations of kinematic model to mobile coordinates, the tracking problem changes to stabilization. controller is designed in two(More)
Thick-slice image acquisitions are sometimes inevitable in magnetic resonance imaging due to limitations posed by pulse sequence timing and signal-to-noise-ratio. The estimation of an isotropic high-resolution volume from thick-slice MRI scans is desired for improved image analysis and evaluation. In this article we formulate a maximum a posteriori (MAP)(More)
Functional localization is a concept which involves the application of a sequence of geometrical and statistical image processing operations in order to define the location of brain activity or to produce functional/parametric maps with respect to the brain structure or anatomy. Considering that functional brain images do not normally convey detailed(More)
