The present study examines which egocentric coordinate system determines the border between the disturbed 'contralateral' and the normal 'ipsilateral' side in patients with hemineglect. Based on the observation of significantly longer reaction times for saccades towards stimuli presented in the left visual field (LVF) in right brain-damaged patients with(More)
Thyroxine can cause cardiac hypertrophy by activating growth factors, such as IGF-I (insulin-like growth factor-I). Since oxidative stress is enhanced in the hyperthyroidism, it would control protein expression involved in this hypertrophy. Male Wistar rats were divided into four groups: (I) control, (II) vitamin E-supplemented (20 mg/kg/day subcutaneous),(More)
Feature selection is an important data preprocessing step in data mining and pattern recognition. Many algorithms have been proposed in the past for simple patterns that can be characterised by a single feature vector. Unfortunately, these algorithms are hardly applicable to what are referred as complex patterns that have to be described by a finite set of(More)
