We present a functional model of form pathway in visual cortex based on predictive coding scheme, in which the prediction is compared with feedforward signals filtered by two kinds of spatial resolution maps, broad and fine resolution map. We propose here the functional role of the prediction and of the two kinds of resolution maps in perception of object(More)
BACKGROUND The Agatston score, commonly used to quantify coronary artery calcification (CAC), is determined by the plaque area and density. Despite an excellent predictability of the Agatston score for cardiovascular events, the density of CAC has never been studied in patients with pre-dialysis chronic kidney disease (CKD). This study aimed to analyze the(More)
