Caenorhabditis elegans features one of the simplest nervous systems in nature, yet its biological information processing still evades our complete understanding. The position of its 302 neurons and almost its entire connectome has been mapped. However, there is only sparse knowledge on how its nervous system codes for its rich behavioral repertoire. The(More)
In this paper we describe a platform that enables Web site automation and monitoring. The platform automatically gathers high quality site activity data, both from the server and client sides. Web adapters, such as rec-ommender systems, can be easily plugged into the platform , and take advantage of the up-to-date activity data. The platform also includes a(More)
– The purpose of this paper is to present a novel built-in Clock Domain Crossing (CDC) test and diagnosis methodology for Globally Asynchronous, Locally Synchronous (GALS) systems. The methodology allows design and prototype validation, low maintenance and repair costs, and production / lifetime at-speed test. Moreover, high resolution diagnosis is(More)
— For many decades neuroscience researchers have been interested in harnessing the computational power of the mammalian nervous system. However, the vast complexity of such a nervous system has made it very difficult to fully understand basic functions such as movement, touch and learning. More recently the nervous system of the C. elegans nematode has been(More)
