Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) present a new generation of real-time embedded systems with limited computation, energy and memory resources that are being used in a wide variety of applications where traditional networking infrastructure is practically infeasible. Appropriate cluster-head node election can drastically reduce the energy consumption and(More)
BACKGROUND Psychiatric mother and baby units are increasingly asked to assess parenting in people with severe mental illness, particularly schizophrenia, but little research evidence exists on which to base assessments. METHOD Mother-infant interaction was assessed in 26 women who had recovered from the acute phase of severe post-partum mental disorder, a(More)
The administration of methamphetamine (METH) to experimental animals results in damage to nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons. We have demonstrated previously that the excitatory amino acids may be involved in this neurotoxicity. For example, several compounds which bind to the phenyclidine site within the ion channel linked to the N-methyl-D-aspartate(More)
Preamble The work described here is the only line of research that combines case-based reasoning and fuzzy set theory in a weather prediction application. This paper summarizes a master of computer science thesis of the same name (Hansen Abstract A fuzzy logic based methodology for knowledge acquisition is developed and used for retrieval of temporal cases(More)
One of the major problems of Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) at the present is the high rate of false alerts that the systems produce. These alerts cause problems to human analysts to repeatedly and intensively analyze the false alerts to initiate appropriate actions. We demonstrate the advantages of using a hybrid neuro-fuzzy approach to reduce the(More)
While a wide range of techniques for gait analysis is available, there is still no standard, readily available , portable clinical technique. Experts in the field of clinical gait analysis are scarce. Currently, about 80% of all gait cases referred to a specialist by a general practitioner (GP) require little intervention. In this paper, we propose a(More)
1. ABSTRACT Operational meteorology involves the application of accumulated human expertise. When developing intelligent systems for operational meteorologists, three aspects of forecasting should be considered, namely: forecasting relies on a variety of techniques; experts convey their knowledge with fuzzy terms; and data are often imprecise. No single(More)
