In the S1-S2 interval, 400 ms after an arrow as S1, an EEG-potential difference occurs between scalp sites contralateral and ipsilateral to arrow direction. Eimer [J. Exp. Psychol. Hum. Percept. Perform. 21 (1995) 837-854] interpreted this difference as a sign of automatic activation of the manual response, due to dimensional overlap of arrows and(More)
The aim of this retrospective two-centre study was to investigate the clinical impact of 11C-choline PET/CT on treatment management decisions in patients with recurrent prostate cancer (rPCa) after radical therapy. Enrolled in this retrospective study were 150 patients (95 from Bologna, 55 from Würzburg) with rPCa and biochemical relapse (PSA mean ± SD 4.3(More)
The goal of this research is to enable mobile robots to navigate through crowded environments such as indoor shopping malls, airports, or downtown side walks. The key research question addressed in this paper is how to learn planners that generate human-like motion behavior. Our approach uses inverse reinforcement learning (IRL) to learn human-like(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare pre- and postoperative urodynamic findings in patients with a bulbourethral composite suspension and intraoperative urodynamically controlled sling tension adjustment. METHODS AND PATIENTS All data were prospectively collected from 10 patients (mean age 66 years) who successfully underwent bulbourethral composite suspension for(More)
Sex hormones, including testosterone, are hypothesized to have an influence on the human circadian system. We sampled male students in the period after adolescence. We used the Composite Scale of Morningness (CSM) to assess chronotype and saliva testosterone sampling in 106 University students (23.87±3.56 years; range 19-37) between 26.4.2011 and 6.5.2011,(More)
Volcanism is a substantial process during crustal growth on planetary bodies and well documented to have occurred in the early Solar System from the recognition of numerous basaltic meteorites. Considering the ureilite parent body (UPB), the compositions of magmas that formed a potential UPB crust and were complementary to the ultramafic ureilite mantle(More)
External zeitgebers synchronize the human circadian rhythm of sleep and wakefulness. Humans adapt their chronotype to the day-night cycle, the strongest external zeitgeber. The human circadian rhythm shifts to evening-type orientation when daylight is prolonged into the evening and night hours by artificial light sources. Data from a survey of 1507 German(More)
Accumulating evidence suggests that evening-type adolescents are exposed to a number of determinants that might have a negative impact on their health condition. Despite the fact that biological and psychosocial factors are interrelated, their impacts on the shift toward eveningness during puberty have been considered only separately. In this study, the(More)
In this paper, we present a monocular, texture-based method for person detection and upper-body orientation classification. We build on a commonly used approach for person recognition that uses a Support Vector Machine (SVM) on Histograms of Oriented Gradients (HOG) [1] but replace the SVM by a decision tree with SVMs as binary decision makers. Thereby, in(More)
BACKGROUND Despite different biological mechanisms involved in the restenotic process of in-stent restenosis and restenosis after balloon angioplasty alone, the occurrence of a second restenosis has been reported in the same range. There are no data available comparing the outcome after re-angioplasty of such lesions. We analyzed in a matched pair(More)
