In this work we present a comparative study of three image deconvolution methods applied to fluorescence images of neural proteins. The purpose of this work is to compare the efficiency of these methods, in order to establish which one performs better the restoration of this type o image. Moreover we show that image deconvolution improve not only image(More)
This article covers a tracking appoach for multiple simultaneously flying animals. The idea is to constraint the tracking to the physically possible space without any knowledge of the scene. Accordingly, we propose to use a naively made trajectory dataset as a base to track the targets into the possible space rather than the probable space. First, a(More)
This paper describes a system managing data fusion in the Pattern Recognition (PR) field. The problem is seen from the multi decisional points of view. Several modules classification specialized on specific features sub-spaces allow the cooperation of different classification techniques. The use of neural network for het-erogenous, incomplete and noised(More)
Nineteen supracricoid porticol laryngectomy (SCPL) with cricohyoidoepiglottopexy (CHEP) speakers and 19 normal adult laryngeal (NAL) male speakers took part in this prospective study. Computed analysis of the voice and speech parameters was performed using the Computed Speech Lab from Kay Elemectrics. Parameters recorded for voice analysis were the average(More)
The indications of partial supracricoid laryngectomy have become more numerous since the first descriptions made by Majer, Labayle and Piquet. The study of the published functional results emphasizes that false passages during deglutition are the main postoperative problem. This technical note is aimed at drawing attention to the various points to be(More)
The vocal quality attained with a tracheoesophageal myomucosal shunt (MMS) as described by Strome was evaluated in four patients and compared with three esophageal speakers and two normal subjects. The patients with MMSs acquired speech sooner. Fundamental frequency, pitch, timbre, and melody were analyzed with computerized electroglottography and(More)
The authors suggest replacement of the term "infra-temporal fossa" (indicating in the international anatomical nomenclature the pterygo-maxillary fossa) by the term "infra-spheno-temporal fossa" which would seem anatomically more appropriat. In the context of an operation performed in this region for a recurrence of a nasopharyngeal angiofibroma, a review(More)
