The White Noise Hypothesis (WNH) assumes that in the uniform pulse code modulation (PCM) quantization scheme the errors in individual channels behave like white noise, i.e. they are independent and identically distributed random variables. The WNH is key to estimating the mean square quantization error (MSE). But is the WNH valid? In this paper we take a(More)
During cortical development, different cell populations arise in the basal telencephalon and subsequently migrate tangentially to the neocortex. However, it is not clear whether these cortical cells are generated in the lateral ganglionic eminence (LGE), the medial ganglionic eminence (MGE), or both. In this study, we have generated a three-dimensional(More)
Centerline tracing of dendritic structures in confocal images of neurons is an essential tool for the construction of a geometric representation of a neuronal network. In this paper, we propose a novel algorithm (ORION 2) for centerline extraction that is both highly accurate and computationally efficient. The main novelty of the proposed method is the use(More)
Using birthdating techniques, we have studied when cells that settle in the marginal zone (future layer 1) of the cortical neuroepithelium are generated in developing rat embryos. The majority of marginal zone cells are generated at embryonic day 12 (E12), E13 and E14, although some cells generated later can incorporate into this stratum after the cortical(More)
Among the major reasons for the success of the Internet have been the simple networking architecture and the IP interoperation layer. However, the traffic model has recently changed. More and more applications (e.g. peer-to-peer, content delivery networks) target on the content that they deliver rather than on the addresses of the servers who (originally)(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate the interobserver reliability of echocardiographic findings of right ventricle (RV) dysfunction for prognosticating normotensive patients with pulmonary embolism (PE). METHODS A central panel of cardiologists evaluated echocardiographic studies of 75 patients included in the PROTECT study for the following signs: RV diameter,(More)
