Linear interpolation has been adapted in many signal and image processing applications due to its simple implementation and low computational cost. In standard linear interpolation the kernel is the second order B-spline   2 β t. In this work we show that the interpolation error can be remarkably diminished by using the time-shifted B-spline   2 β t-Δ(More)
The fasciculus retroflexus (FR) fiber bundle comprises the intense cholinergic projection from the medial division of the habenula nucleus (Hbn) of the epithalamus to the interpeduncular nucleus (IPN) of the limbic midbrain. Due to the widespread connections of the Hbn and IPN, it could be surmised that the FR is integrated in the processings of various(More)
In this work, we present a new approach for shift invariant complex wavelet analysis of neuroelectric signals. A key idea is to preprocess the signal with the Hilbert transformer to yield an analytic signal, which is then wavelet transformed using the linear phase complex scaling and wavelet filters. In different scales, the total energy of the wavelet(More)
To find out whether the changes in the brain histaminergic system are involved in the pathophysiology of portal-systemic encephalopathy, we examined the effects of histamine H(1) receptor blockade on spontaneous locomotor activity, feeding, and circadian rhythmicity in rats with portacaval anastomosis (PCA). Pyrilamine, an H(1) receptor blocker (15(More)
