This paper presents USARSim, an open source high fidelity robot simulator that can be used both for research and education. USARSim offers many characteristics that differentiate it from most existing simulators. Most notably, it constitutes the simulation engine used to run the virtual robots competition within the Robocup initiative. We describe its(More)
The characteristics of the cognitive processing of food, body and emotional information in patients with anorexia nervosa (AN) are debatable. We reviewed functional magnetic resonance imaging studies to assess whether there were consistent neural basis and networks in the studies to date. Searching PubMed, Ovid, Web of Science, The Cochrane Library and(More)
Camera guided teleoperation has long been the preferred mode for controlling remote robots, with other modes such as asynchronous control only used when unavoidable. In this experiment we evaluate the usefulness of asynchronous operation for a multirobot search task. Because controlling multiple robots places additional demands on the operator, removing the(More)
OBJECTIVE Schizophrenics are usually unable to perform well on cognitive tasks due to disturbances in cortical information processing that are observable as abnormalities in electroencephalogram (EEG) signals. However, whether such cortical disturbances can be assessed by quantitative EEG analysis remains unclear. The purpose of this study was to(More)
Enhanced error-related negativity (ERN) has been associated with anxiety among both non-clinical and clinical populations. However, whether it is abnormal among adult patients with generalized anxiety disorder (GAD) is still unknown. The present study investigated it across GAD and obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD). Event related brain potentials (ERPs)(More)
BACKGROUND Abnormalities of myelin integrity have been reported in obsessive-compulsive disorder (OCD) using multi-parameter maps of diffusion tensor imaging (DTI). However, it was still unknown to what degree these abnormalities might be affected by pharmacological treatment. OBJECTIVE To investigate whether the abnormalities of white matter(More)
Cognitive impairment in patients with panic disorder (PD) has been studied using event-related potentials (ERPs). However, previous studies obtained ERP data only at a few scalp sites, and seldom investigated N200 measurements from the difference waveforms. In the present study, auditory ERPs were recorded at 16 scalp sites during an active discrimination(More)
Decreased P300 amplitude has been reported in schizophrenics during their first episode. The brain sources that contribute to this abnormality have not yet been well documented, and were investigated in the present study using high density EEG recordings. Nineteen drug-naive first episode schizophrenics were compared to 25 normal controls. Auditory P300 was(More)
