Functional morphology has benefited greatly from the input of techniques and thinking from other disciplines. This has been especially productive in situations where each discipline has made significant contributions to a particular research topic. A combination of methodologies from functional morphology and developmental biology has allowed us to(More)

In this article is described a knowledge-based system or expert system for failures identification in onshore pipelines. This expert system is called Failure Analysis Expert System (FAES). The FAES development has been split in two parts. In the present part I, the database structure and knowledge acquisition process are described, while in second part, the(More)
The authors are indebted to Chandika Indikadahena who has maintained the data files on which the NHA-2000 have been constructed. This construction would not have been possible without an input from several dozen persons who have responded to data request and commented preliminary versions of the data files; this input will be acknowledged in a forthcoming(More)
The optimal approach following the isolation of Staphylococcus aureus from an intravascular catheter tip in the absence of concomitant bacteremia remains unclear. We aimed to determine the rate of delayed complications in these patients. We performed a retrospective observational study (during the period 2002–2012) including patients with a catheter tip(More)
To expand the buccal cavity, many suction-feeding fishes rely on a considerable contribution from dorsal rotation of the dorsal part of the head including the brains, eyes, and several bones forming the braincase and skull roof (jointly referred to as the neurocranium). As the neurocranium takes up a large part of the total mass of the head, this rotation(More)
BACKGROUND Osteoarthritis of the knee is a major cause of disability among adults. Electro-acupuncture is considered a potentially useful treatment for osteoarthritis. The purpose of this study is to assess the efficacy of electro-acupuncture on pain control, pain perception, plasma cortisol and beta-endorphin levels, patient-perceived quality of life, and(More)
Understanding and emulating human creativity is a key factor when developing computer based algorithms devoted to art. This paper presents a new evolutionary approach to art and creativity aimed at comprehending human principles and motivations, behaviors and procedures from an evolutionary point of view. The results, and the collective artwork described,(More)
