Lung cancer has been the largest cause of cancer deaths worldwide with an overall 5-year survival rate of only 15%. Its symptoms can be found exclusively in advanced stages where the chances for patients to survive are very low, thus making the mortality rate the highest among all other types of cancer. The present work deals with the attempt to design(More)
Lung cancer has been the largest cause of cancer deaths worldwide with an overall 5-year survival rate of only 15%. Its early detection significantly increases the chances of an effective treatment. For this purpose, a computer-aided design system using images of sputum stained smears is a practical, low-cost, and totally non invasive solution. In this(More)
The models in statistical physics such as an Ising model offer a convenient way to characterize stationary activity of neural populations. Such stationary activity of neurons may be expected for recordings from in vitro slices or anesthetized animals. However, modeling activity of cortical circuitries of awake animals has been more challenging because both(More)
