Datasets with a large amount of noisy data are quite common in real-world classification problems. Robustness is an important characteristic of state-of-the-art classifiers that use error minimization techniques, thus requiring a long time to converge. This paper presents ClusWiSARD, a clustering customization of the WiSARD weightless neu-ral network model,(More)
This work proposes a new method, KernelCanvas, that is adequate to the Weightless Neural Model known as WiSARD for generating a fixed length binary input from spatio-temporal patterns. The method, based on kernel distances, is simple to implement and scales linearly to the number of kernels. Five different datasets were used to evaluate its performance in(More)
Studies investigating the resistance–susceptibility of crop insects to proteins found in latex fluids have been reported. However, latex-bearing plants also host insects. In this study, the gut proteolytic system of Pseudosphinx tetrio, which feeds on Plumeria rubra leaves, was characterized and further challenged against the latex proteolytic system of its(More)
Music tracking is a useful technique for many music related tasks. Some applications include evaluating musicians performance, automatic score page turning and syncing music lyrics. In this work, we describe a WiSARD-based system for real-time music tracking and evaluate the performance of the corresponding implementation. Given any audio example, the(More)
Aripiprazole is an antipsychotic that acts as a partial agonist at dopamine D2 receptors, with a favorable pharmacological profile. Due to its unique mechanism of action, this compound has potential application as a substitutive therapy for drug addiction. Considering that distinct neural systems subserve the addictive and analgesic actions of opioids, we(More)
This study investigated the antinociceptive action of p-chloro-selenosteroid (PCS), administered by intragastric route (i.g.) to mice against acute models. The contribution of adenosinergic, dopaminergic, serotonergic, nitric oxide and opioid systems was investigated. It was evaluated if the administration of PCS triggers toxic effect. Treatment with PCS(More)
