This study provides a three-dimensional (3D) analysis of differences between the 3D morphology of active and inactive human X interphase chromosomes (Xa and Xi territories). Chromosome territories were painted in formaldehyde-fixed, three-dimensionally intact human diploid female amniotic fluid cell nuclei (46, XX) with X-specific whole chromosome(More)
We examined 18- and 24-month-old infants' sensitivity to the functional relationships between time, speed, and distance. The task included a train moving first visibly and then into a tunnel. The movement of the train was always accompanied by a train-characteristic sound signalling the travel duration. After the train concluded its travel, infants were(More)
Computational geometry provides many solutions to imaging problems, especially for three-dimensional (3D) image compression, segmentation, and measurement. We present here a new method to partition volume data by Voronoi polyhedra structured in a graph environment. A dynamic construction of the 3D Voronoi diagram is proposed, using image information(More)
The speed of a moving object is a critical variable that factors into actions such as crossing a street and catching a ball. However, it is not clear when the ability to discriminate between different speeds develops. Here, we investigated speed discrimination in 6- and 10-month-old infants using a habituation paradigm showing infants events of a ball(More)
The DANCe (Dynamical Analysis of Nearby ClustErs) project aims at deriving a comprehensive census of the stellar and substellar content of a number of nearby (<1 kpc) young (<500 Myr) associations. Members are identified based on their kinematics properties, ensuring little contamination from background and foreground sources. We show how robust individual(More)
This study demonstrates the use of Voronoi tessellation procedures to obtain quantitative morphological data for chromosome territories in the cell nucleus. As a model system, chromosomes 7 and X were visualized in human female amniotic fluid cell nuclei by chromosomal in situ suppression hybridization with chromosome-specific composite probes.
