An optimal Bayesian decision procedure for testing hypothesis in normal linear models based on intrinsic model posterior probabilities is considered. It is proven that these posterior probabilities are simple functions of the classical F-statistic, thus the evaluation of the procedure can be carried out analytically through the frequentist analysis of the(More)
For the identification of yeast genes specifying biochemical activities, a genomic strategy that is rapid, sensitive, and widely applicable was developed with an array of 6144 individual yeast strains, each containing a different yeast open reading frame (ORF) fused to glutathione S-transferase (GST). For the identification of ORF-associated activities,(More)
in previous works, this paper presents a study of the SM and SSS retrieval capabilities over homogeneous pixels, in the two modes of operation with different auxiliary data. It is found that SSS retrievals using the first Stokes parameter measured in the dual-polarization mode perform somewhat worse than using the vertical (vv) and horizontal (hh)(More)
—End-to-end calibration of the Microwave Imaging Radiometer by Aperture Synthesis (MIRAS) radiometer refers to processing the measured raw data up to dual-polarization brightness temperature maps over the earth's surface, which is the level 1 product of the Soil Moisture and Ocean Salinity (SMOS) mission. The process starts with a self-correction of(More)
In this work, we present an approach to take advantage of confidence measures obtained during the recognition and understanding processes of a dialog system, in order to guide the behavior of the dialog manager. Our approach allows the system to ask the user for confirmation about the data which have low confidence values associated to them, after the(More)
The signaling mechanisms by which skeletal muscle electrical activity leads to changes in gene expression remain largely undefined. We have reported that myotube depolarization induces calcium signals in the cytosol and nucleus via inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP(3)) and phosphorylation of both ERK1/2 and cAMP-response element-binding protein (CREB). We(More)
BACKGROUND Serotonin 1-A receptors are key regulators of serotonin activity and their dysregulation might be implicated in the emergence of both major depression (MD) and generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). Previous studies have yielded inconclusive results as to whether the 5-HT1A receptor gene (HTR1A) has a role in the aetiology of MD and no study up to(More)
The study of fractional variational problems with derivatives in the sense of Caputo is a recent subject, the main results being Agrawal's necessary optimality conditions of Euler-Lagrange and respective transver-sality conditions. Using Agrawal's Euler-Lagrange equation and the Lagrange multiplier technique, we obtain here a Noether-like theorem for(More)
OBJECTIVE To evaluate the safety and assess the different symptom improvements found after a combined low-frequency primary motor cortex and high-frequency prefrontal cortex (PFC) stimulation using the deep TMS (dTMS) H-coil, as an add-on treatment for Parkinson's disease (PD). METHODS Forty-five PD patients underwent 14 dTMS sessions; each consisting of(More)
