Minimization of Region-Scalable Fitting Energy for Image Segmentation
TLDR
This work proposes a region-based active contour model that draws upon intensity information in local regions at a controllable scale to cope with intensity inhomogeneity and shows desirable performances of this model.
Implicit Active Contours Driven by Local Binary Fitting Energy
TLDR
The proposed region-based active contour model can be used to segment images with intensity inhomogeneity, which overcomes the limitation of piecewise constant models and has promising application to image denoising.
Disruption of posterior brain systems for reading in children with developmental dyslexia
TLDR
Brain activation patterns in dyslexic and nonimpaired children during pseudoword and real-word reading tasks that required phonologic analysis provided neurobiological evidence of an underlying disruption in the neural systems for reading in children with dyslexia.
A Level Set Method for Image Segmentation in the Presence of Intensity Inhomogeneities With Application to MRI
TLDR
A novel region-based method for image segmentation, which is able to simultaneously segment the image and estimate the bias field, and the estimated bias field can be used for intensity inhomogeneity correction (or bias correction).
The Fusiform Face Area is Part of a Network that Processes Faces at the Individual Level
TLDR
It is suggested that face- selective areas may be involved in the perception of faces at the individual level, whereas letter-selective regions may be tuning themselves to font information in order to recognize letters more efficiently.
Performance on Indirect Measures of Race Evaluation Predicts Amygdala Activation
TLDR
The results suggest that amygdala and behavioral responses to Black-versus-White faces in White subjects reflect cultural evaluations of social groups modified by individual experience.
Functional disruption in the organization of the brain for reading in dyslexia.
TLDR
Using functional magnetic resonance imaging to compare brain activation patterns in dyslexic and nonimpaired subjects as they performed tasks that made progressively greater demands on phonologic analysis supports a conclusion that the impairment in Dyslexia is phonologic in nature.
Differential Sensitivity of Human Visual Cortex to Faces, Letterstrings, and Textures: A Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Study
TLDR
Different regions of ventral extrastriate cortex are specialized for processing the perceptual features of faces and letterstrings, and that these regions are intermediate between earlier processing in striate and peristriates cortex, and later lexical, semantic, and associative processing in downstream cortical regions.
Separable Neural Components in the Processing of Black and White Faces
TLDR
Results provide evidence for neural distinctions between automatic and more controlled processing of social groups, and suggest that controlled processes may modulate automatic evaluation.
Expertise for cars and birds recruits brain areas involved in face recognition
TLDR
It is suggested that level of categorization and expertise, rather than superficial properties of objects, determine the specialization of the FFA.
