Vulnerability to emotional disorders including depression derives from interactions between genes and environment, especially during sensitive developmental periods. Across evolution, maternal care is a key source of environmental sensory signals to the developing brain, and a vast body of work has linked quantitative and qualitative aspects of maternal(More)
Accumulation of intraluminal polymorphonuclear leukocytes (PMN) is a hallmark of inflammatory diseases of the airways. Extracellular nucleotides stimulate PMN adhesion to human main pulmonary artery endothelial cells (HPAEC) by a purinoceptor-mediated mechanism. We investigated the effects of nucleotides on adhesion of freshly isolated human PMN to cultured(More)
The identification of recurring patterns within a sequence of events is an important task in behavior research. In this paper, we consider a general probabilistic framework for identifying such patterns, by distinguishing between events that belong to a pattern and events that occur as part of background processes. The event processes, both for background(More)
This project aims to explore the topic of saliency in computer vision; specifically to create a bottom-up saliency based detector for events of interest in a crowded environment. Shane Grant is a third year undergraduate student studying computer engineering at the University of California, San Diego. He has taken introductory courses to artificial(More)
