Information on the prevalence of spinal cord injury is becoming more important as the life expectancy of survivors is increasing, but few prevalence studies have been published. This paper summarises the internationally available findings on prevalence, including the methodologies and data sources used. Prevalence rates ranged from 11 to 112 per 100,000(More)
– Efficient motion tracking of faces is an important aspect for Human Computer Interaction (HCI). In this paper we combine the Condensation and the Wavelet Approximated Reduced Vector Machine (W-RVM) approach. Both are joined by the core idea to spend only as much as necessary effort for easy to discriminate regions (Condensation) or vectors (W-RVM) of the(More)
Dendritic spines may be tiny in volume, but are of major importance for neuroscience. They are the main receivers for excitatory synaptic connections, and their constant changes in number and in shape reflect the dynamic connectivity of the brain. Two-photon microscopy allows following the fate of individual spines in brain slice preparations and in live(More)
The Condensation and the Wavelet Approximated Reduced Vector Machine (W-RVM) approach are joined by the core idea to spend only as much as necessary effort for easy to discriminate regions (Condensation) and measurement locations (W-RVM) of the feature space, but most for regions and locations with high statistical likelihood to contain the object of(More)
This paper proposes to integrate a feature pursuit learning process into a greedy bottom-up learning scheme. The algorithm combines the benefits of bottom-up and top-down approaches for learning hierarchical models: It allows to induce the hierarchical structure of objects in an unsupervised manner, while avoiding a hard decision on the activation of parts.(More)
