A decade after it was shown that the orientation of visual grating stimuli can be decoded from human visual cortex activity by means of multivariate pattern classification of BOLD fMRI data, numerous studies have investigated which aspects of neuronal activity are reflected in BOLD response patterns and are accessible for decoding. However, it remains(More)
We present the design and experimental evaluation of a wireless system that exploits relaying in the context of WiFi. We opt for WiFi given its popularity and wide spread use for a number of applications, such as smart homes. Our testbed consists of three nodes, a source, a relay and a destination, that operate using the physical layer procedures of(More)
We present a structured Quantize-Map-and-Forward (QMF) scheme for cooperative communication over wireless networks, that employs LDPC ensembles for the node operations and message-passing algorithms for decoding. We demonstrate through extensive simulation results over the full-duplex parallel relay network, that our scheme, with no transmit channel state(More)
We consider a source that would like to communicate with a destination over a layered Gaussian relay network.We present a computationally efficient method that enables to select a near-optimal (in terms of throughput) subnetwork of a given size connecting the source with the destination. Our method starts by formulating an integer optimization problem that(More)
We evaluate the information-theoretic achievable rates of Quantize-Map-and-Forward (QMF) relaying schemes over Gaussian N-relay diamond networks. Focusing on vector Gaussian quantization at the relays, our goal is to understand how close to the cutset upper bound these schemes can achieve in the context of diamond networks, and how much benefit is obtained(More)
Physical layer cooperation of a source with a relay can significantly boost the performance of a wireless connection. However, the best practical relaying scheme can vary depending on the relative strengths of the channels that connect the source, relay and destination. This paper proposes and evaluates QUILT, a system for physical-layer relaying that(More)
Quantize-Map-and-Forward (QMF) relaying has been shown to achieve the optimal diversity-multiplexing tradeoff (DMT) for the slow fading single-antenna relay channel, regardless of whether the relay is full-duplex or half-duplex. A key reason for the DMT optimality is that quantizing at the noise level suffices to achieve the cut-set bound approximately and(More)
The studyforrest (http://studyforrest.org) dataset is likely the largest neuroimaging dataset on natural language and story processing publicly available today. In this article, along with a companion publication, we present an update of this dataset that extends its scope to vision and multi-sensory research. 15 participants of the original cohort(More)
Here we present an update of the studyforrest (http://studyforrest.org) dataset that complements the previously released functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data for natural language processing with a new two-hour 3 Tesla fMRI acquisition while 15 of the original participants were shown an audio-visual version of the stimulus motion picture. We(More)
Accurate polarization mode dispersion (PMD) measurements on modern telecommunication fiber involve significant fiber layout and handling problems. These problems severely limit the quality and quantity of data that can be taken. A new method is proposed for measuring PMD using a large diameter collapsible spool with localized external perturbation (LEP).(More)
