Data from two recent studies strongly support the hypothesis that idiopathic intracranial hypertension without papilledema (IIHWOP) could represent a powerful risk factor for the progression of pain in primary headache individuals. The first study highlights that an asymptomatic IIHWOP is much more prevalent than believed in the general population and(More)
This paper proposes a system that allows recognizing a person's emotional state starting from audio signal registrations. The provided solution is aimed at improving the interaction among humans and computers, thus allowing effective human-computer intelligent interaction. The system is able to recognize six emotions(anger, boredom, disgust, fear,(More)
There are several QoS technologies available for an Internet Service Provider to manage Guaranteed Performance Services in a telecommunication network. The study of the possible interactions between different QoS technologies is currently an open area of research often called, in the literature, QoS mapping. A QoS mapping problem arises when different(More)
—In this paper, the IEEE 802.16 protocol is investigated with respect to the bandwidth provision problem arising at the Medium Access Control (MAC) layer. The aim is to optimally tune the resource allocation to match QoS requirements. Traffic flows are originated at network layers overlying the 802.16 protocol stack. This leads to the investigation of a(More)
The recently advanced hypothesis that idiopathic intracranial hypertension without papilledema (IIHWOP) is a powerful risk factor for the progression of pain in individuals prone to episodic primary headache implies that IIHWOP is much more prevalent than it is believed to be in the general population and that it can run almost asymptomatic in most of the(More)
SUMMARY Heart failure is a chronic disease that alternates intense and weak phases and requires repeated and frequent hospital treatments. The use of automatic instruments for a remote and ubiquitous monitoring of biological parameters relevant to heart failure pathophysiology offers new perspectives to improve the patients' quality of life and the efficacy(More)
