Crowdsourcing services, such as Amazon Mechanical Turk, allow for easy distribution of small tasks to a large number of workers. Unfortunately, since manually verifying the quality of the submitted results is hard, malicious workers often take advantage of the verification difficulty and submit answers of low quality. Currently, most requesters rely on(More)
—In hyperspectral image analysis, the principal components analysis (PCA) and the maximum noise fraction (MNF) are most commonly used techniques for dimensionality reduction (DR), referred to as PCA-DR and MNF-DR, respectively. The criteria used by the PCA-DR and the MNF-DR are data variance and signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) which are designed to measure data(More)
Functional enrichment analysis is an essential task for the interpretation of gene lists derived from large-scale genetic, transcriptomic and proteomic studies. WebGestalt (WEB-based GEne SeT AnaLysis Toolkit) has become one of the popular software tools in this field since its publication in 2005. For the last 7 years, WebGestalt data holdings have grown(More)
Polysilicon wine-glass mode micromechanical disk reso-nators using a stemless, non-intrusive suspension structure have been demonstrated in both vacuum and atmospheric pressure at frequencies around 73.4 MHz with Q's as high as 98,000 in vacuum, and 8,600 in atmosphere—the highest ever reported Q's at this frequency range and in these environments for any(More)
Lithium is commonly used to treat bipolar disorder, which is associated with altered circadian rhythm. Lithium is a potent inhibitor of glycogen synthase kinase 3 (GSK3), which regulates circadian rhythm in several organisms. In experiments with cultured cells, we show here that GSK3beta phosphorylates and stabilizes the orphan nuclear receptor(More)
This paper presents a robust adaptive neural control design for a class of perturbed strict feedback nonlinear system with both completely unknown virtual control coefficients and unknown nonlinearities. The unknown nonlinearities comprise two types of nonlinear functions: one naturally satisfies the "triangularity condition" and can be approximated by(More)
A number of studies have investigated differences in neural correlates of abstract and concrete concepts with disagreement across results. A quantitative, coordinate-based meta-analysis combined data from 303 participants across 19 functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) studies to identify the differences in(More)
