Centrins are calcium binding proteins that belong to the EF-hand superfamily with diverse biological functions. Herein we present the first systematic study that establishes the relative stability of related centrins via complementary biophysical techniques. Our results define the stepwise molecular behavior of human centrins by two-dimensional infrared (2D(More)
INTRODUCTION Dramatic population growth in the US-Mexico border region suggests more effective family planning services are needed, yet binational data are scarce. The Brownsville-Matamoros Sister City Project for Women's Health collected binational, standardized data from 947 postpartum women in Cameron County (Texas) and Matamoros (Tamaulipas, Mexico)(More)
The purpose of this research is to understand the expectations and behaviors of business aviation pilots toward online learning. The authors believe that the company able to offer an integrated, individualized and useful online training experience will gain a significant competitive advantage. To that end, the authors have researched and synthesized studies(More)
Alignment is a prevalent approach for recognizing three-dimensional objects in two-dimensional images. Current implementations handle errors that are inherent in images in ad hoc ways. This thesis shows that these errors can propagate and magnify through the alignment computations, such that the ad hoc approaches may not work. In addition, a technique is(More)
In this paper, we present a framework for the integration of force feedback information in a NASA NextGen Volumetric Cockpit Situation Display (CSD). With the current CSD, the user retrieves operational information solely through visual displays and interacts with the CSD tools through using a mouse. The advanced capabilities of the CSD may require complex(More)
Future cockpits will likely include new onboard technologies, such as cockpit displays of traffic information, to help support future flight deck roles and responsibilities. These new technologies may benefit from multimodal feedback to aid pilot information processing. The current study investigated the effects of multiple levels of force feedback on(More)
This thesis addresses the general problem of how to find globally consistent and accurate estimates of multiple-view camera geometry from uncalibrated imagery of an extended scene. After decades of study, the classic problem of recovering camera motion from image correspondences remains an active area of research. This is due to the practical difficulties(More)
