UNLABELLED We present a first-draft digital reconstruction of the microcircuitry of somatosensory cortex of juvenile rat. The reconstruction uses cellular and synaptic organizing principles to algorithmically reconstruct detailed anatomy and physiology from sparse experimental data. An objective anatomical method defines a neocortical volume of 0.29 ± 0.01(More)
This paper presents a technique for computing multiresolution shape models of 3D objects acquired as clouds of 3D points. The procedure is fully automated and is able to compute approximations for any object, overcoming sampling irregularity if present (sampling irregularity is a common feature of most 3D acquisition techniques; a typical example is stereo(More)
—Heterogeneous clusters claim for new models and algorithms. In this paper, a new parallel computational model is presented. The model, based on the LogGP model, has been extended to be able to deal with heterogeneous parallel systems. For that purpose, the LogGP's scalar parameters have been replaced by vector and matrix parameters to take into account the(More)
Current understanding of the synaptic organization of the brain depends to a large extent on knowledge about the synaptic inputs to the neurons. Indeed, the dendritic surfaces of pyramidal cells (the most common neuron in the cerebral cortex) are covered by thin protrusions named dendritic spines. These represent the targets of most excitatory synapses in(More)
This paper describes the work performed by the GMRV-URJC team as part of the TRECVid 2008 Rushes Summarization benchmark. The main goal of our approach is to obtain good results by only using low-level techniques. Using only this kind of features also has the advantage of achieving fast processing times. The work presented in this paper is a keyframe-based(More)
