Twin studies have indicated a common genetic origin for intelligence and for variations in brain morphology. Our previous diffusion tensor imaging studies found an association between intelligence and white matter integrity of specific brain regions or tracts. However, specific genetic determinants of the white matter integrity of these brain regions and(More)
The oxytocin receptor gene (OXTR) rs53576A has been associated with autism spectrum disorders (ASDs). A smaller hypothalamic volume has been reported in healthy male A-allele carriers than in male GG homozygotes and in patients with ASDs than in healthy controls. These findings prompt the hypothesis that male AA homozygotes may have weaker hypothalamic(More)
MOTIVATION One popular method for analyzing functional connectivity between genes is to cluster genes with similar expression profiles. The most popular metrics measuring the similarity (or dissimilarity) among genes include Pearson's correlation, linear regression coefficient and Euclidean distance. As these metrics only give some constant values, they can(More)

Genetic variation at the KIBRA rs17070145 polymorphism has been linked to episodic memory, executive function, and Alzheimer's disease (AD), which are related to the structural and functional integrity of the default-mode network (DMN) and executive control network (ECN). We hypothesize that the KIBRA polymorphism could modulate the structure and function(More)
In this paper, we propose a method of recovering shape from shading that solves directly for the surface height using neural networks. The main motivation of this paper is to provide an answer to the open problem proposed by Zhou and Chellappa [11]. We first formulate the shape from shading problem by combining a triangular element surface model with a(More)
Novelty seeking (NS) is a personality trait important for adaptive functioning, but an excessive level of NS has been linked to psychiatric disorders such as ADHD and substance abuse. Previous research has investigated separately the neural and genetic bases of the NS trait, but results were mixed and neural and genetic bases have yet to be examined within(More)
—A high-accurate frequency estimation algorithm is proposed in the 60GHz OFDM wireless communication system. The phase offset is caused by the carrier frequency offset, and its accumulation has a linear relationship in the time. So the preamble sequence phase can be obtained by the algorithm in this paper, and then the carrier frequency offset value is(More)
