Algorithms are presented for raster and vector motion blur, which produce images and masks suitable for combination by the 21/2-D compositing process. The raster algorithm is based on a "skew, blur, unskew" scheme, using a very efficient one-dimensional blurring algorithm. The vector algorithm extends the ideas of anti-aliased scan conversion to motion blur.
The cytokines interleukin-2 and interferon-alpha are potent biological agents used to treat malignancy, infectious diseases, and neurodegenerative disorders. While these medications show substantial therapeutic promise, the neuropsychiatric toxicity associated with these agents is often treatment-limiting. The pathophysiology of this toxicity is not well… (More)
How does a virus bud from the plasma membrane of its host? Here we investigate several possible rate-limiting processes, including thermal fluctuations of the plasma membrane, hydrodynamic interactions, and diffusion of the glycoprotein spikes. We find that for bending moduli greater than 3 x 10(-13) ergs, membrane thermal fluctuations are insufficient to… (More)
Delirium is one of the most fascinating and poorly understood syndromes in medicine. To a large extent, attempts to study the pathophysiology of delirium have been hampered by the many different types of delirium and their variable symptom expression. The emergence of sophisticated brain imaging methodologies has made it possible to move beyond diagnostic… (More)
