A stereological estimator of the weighted mean volume of particles of arbitrary shape is described. This unbiased estimator is based on simple point-sampling of linear intercept lengths. The complete absence of shape assumptions effectively breaks the long-standing 'convexity-barrier': the only requirement here is that individual particles can be(More)
Muscle contraction causes an increase in activity of 5'-AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK). This study was designed to determine whether chronic chemical activation of AMPK will increase mitochondrial enzymes, GLUT-4, and hexokinase in different types of skeletal muscle of resting rats. In acute studies, rats were subcutaneously injected with either(More)
Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) is a powerful tool in the study of the course of nerve fiber bundles in the human brain. Using DTI, the local fiber orientation in each image voxel can be described by a diffusion tensor which is constructed from local measurements of diffusion coefficients along several directions. The measured diffusion coefficients and(More)
The nucleator is a well-established manual stereological method of estimating mean cell volume from observations on random cell transects through reference points of the cells. In this paper, we present an automated version of the nucleator that uses automatic segmentation of the boundaries of the cell transects. An expert supervises the process. If the(More)
This report deals with the reconstruction of the distribution of membrane thickness T from that of orthogonal length Lo, measured in random section planes. In such planes the membrane appears as a band and the linear distance from one of its boundaries perpendicular to the opposite one is the length of the orthogonal intercept. Using a membrane model, an(More)
The amount of learning gained from being assisted in completing the task of bringing a predator-prey system into equilibrium by controlling the predator population was investigated. Learning was explored both by post-task questioning and by testing for transfer to another predator-prey task. Participants were 28 undergraduate psychology students, all(More)
In the present paper, we propose a Palm likelihood approach as a general estimating principle for stationary point processes in R d for which the density of the second-order factorial moment measure is available in closed form or in an integral representation. Examples of such point processes include the Neyman–Scott processes and the log Gaussian Cox(More)
A model for an inhomogeneous Poisson process with high intensity near the edges of a Voronoi tessellation in 2D or 3D is proposed. The model is analysed in a Bayesian setting with priors on nuclei of the Voronoi tessellation and other model parameters. An MCMC algorithm is constructed to sample from the posterior, which contains information about the(More)
