This paper proposes and explains a data treatment technique to improve the accuracy of a neural network estimator in regression problems, where multi-dimensional input data set is highly skewed and non-normally distributed. The proposed treatment modifies the distribution characteristics of the data set. The prediction of the suspended sediment, which is an(More)
6 7 Abstract 8 Soft computing is the state-of-the-art approach to artificial intelligence and it has showed an excellent performance in solving the com-9 bined optimization problems. In this paper, issues related to the implementation of the soft computing techniques are highlighted for a 10 successful application to solve economic dispatch (ED) problem,(More)
Input data representation is highly decisive in neural learning in terms of convergence. In this paper, within an analytical and statistical framework, the effect of the distribution characteristics of the input pattern vectors on the performance of the back-propagation (BP) algorithm is established for a function approximation problem, where parameters of(More)
BACKGROUND The majority of patients with schizophrenia and mood disorders have disruptions in sleep and circadian rhythm. Melatonin, which is secreted by the human pineal gland, plays an important role in sleep and circadian rhythm. The aim of the present study was to evaluate and compare pineal gland volumes in patients with schizophrenia and mood(More)
BACKGROUND The treatment of Acinetobacter baumannii infections is difficult. Carbapenems, sulbactam, and colistin are the most effective antibiotics. OBJECTIVES The aim of this study was to evaluate the susceptibilities of genotypically different A. baumannii isolates to sulbactam, amikacin, netilmicin, meropenem, tigecycline and colistin. PATIENTS AND(More)
Sex hormones, particularly estrogen, are suggested to play a role in the physiopathology of generalized anxiety disorder (GAD). Estrogen functions through the estrogen receptors alpha and beta and the recently discovered G protein-coupled estrogen receptor 1 (GPER1). This study aimed, for the first time, to evaluate serum GPER1 levels in drug-naive patients(More)

bir erkek olgusu sunulmuştur. Abstract Atomoxetine is a well-studied non-stimulant treatment agent, and is also the first-choice non-stimulant drug for the conventional treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder owing to its effectiveness and tolerability. Urinary retention is a type of urological emergency that is associated with the inability(More)
Chronic myeloproliferative disorders such as polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocytosis (ET), and idiopathic myelofibrosis arise from clonal proliferation of neoplastic stem cells in the bone marrow. Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) are a family of zinc-dependent endopeptidases that have potential to degrade all types of extracellular matrix (ECM) and(More)
Rhodotorula spp. have emerged as opportunistic pathogens, particularly in immunocompromised patients. The current study reports a case of onychomycosis caused by Rhodotorula glutinis in a 74-year-old immunocompetent female. The causative agent was identified as R. glutinis based on the pinkish-orange color; mucoid-appearing yeast colonies on Sabouraud(More)
