Simulated hypobaric hypoxia (HBH), resembling high altitude hypoxia severely affects the CNS and results in several physiological changes. The hippocampus is closely associated with learning and memory and an insult to this region affects cognition. Previous studies suggest that rapid or prolonged exposures to HBH are associated with psychomotor and(More)
Chronic restraint stress causes spatial learning and memory deficits, dendritic atrophy of the hippocampal pyramidal neurons and alterations in the levels of neurotransmitters in the hippocampus. In contrast, intracranial self-stimulation (ICSS) rewarding behavioral experience is known to increase dendritic arborization, spine and synaptic density, and(More)
The mammalian prefrontal cortex (PFC) has been implicated in a variety of motivational and emotional processes underlying working memory, attention and decision making. The PFC receives dopaminergic projections from the ventral tegmental area (VTA) and contains high density of D1 and D2 receptors and these projections are important in higher integrative(More)
In process industries, control of liquid level in the process tank is important and complicated issues. In this work, authors have represented a case study involving mathematical modeling, system identification, and controller design of a three tank conical interacting level system (TTCILS). A nonlinear tank is identified mathematically and an auto tuning(More)
—High performance human identification using iris biometrics requires the development of automated algorithms for robust segmentation of the iris region given an ocular image. Many studies have shown that iris segmentation is one of the most crucial element of iris recognition systems. While many iris segmentation techniques have been proposed, most of(More)
C-Mantec is a new neural network algorithm that adds competition between neurons with thermal perceptron learning rule. The neuron learning is ruled by the thermal perceptron rule that guarantees the stability of the learnt information while the architecture increases and while the neurons involve in competition for newly incoming data. Competing makes it(More)
