Perceived stress reflects the extent to which situations are appraised as stressful at a given point in one's life. Past brain imaging studies have examined activation patterns underlying the stress response, yet focal differences in brain structures related to perceived stress are not well understood, especially when considering gray matter (GM) and white(More)
Many applications require data to be captured and processed in real time, migrating all the data to a central site prior to analysis, a procedure that can create significant overhead. Examples include the variety of sensor network-based applications , where sensors interface with real world artifacts and must respond to physical phenomenon that cannot be(More)
A key concern for professionals in any industry is ensuring regulatory compliance. Regulations are often complex and require in depth technical knowledge of the domain in which they operate. The level of technical detail and complexity in regulations is a barrier to their automation due to extensive software development time and costs that are involved. In(More)
—With increasing availability of instrumented in-frastructures in built environments, it is necessary to understand how such data will be stored, processed and analysed in a timely manner. Many " smart cities " applications, for instance, identify how data from building sensors can be combined together to support applications such as emergency response,(More)
Although researchers generally concur that creativity involves the production of novel and useful products, the neural basis of creativity remains elusive due to the complexity of the cognitive processes involved. Recent studies have shown that highly creative individuals displayed more cognitive flexibility. However, direct evidence supporting the(More)
Recent building emergency management research has highlighted the need for the effective utilization of dynamically changing building information. BIM (building information modelling) can play a significant role in this process due to its comprehensive and standardized data format and integrated process. This paper introduces a BIM based virtual environment(More)
Building information modeling (BIM) technology has been receiving an increasing attention in the architecture, engineering , and construction (AEC) industry. Unlike traditional computer aided design (CAD) technology, BIM technology allows storing both geometric information and rich semantic information of building models, as well as their relationships, to(More)
