One of the main limitations in using inverse methods for non-invasively imaging cardiac electrical activity in a clinical setting is the difficulty in readily obtaining high-quality data sets to reconstruct accurately a patient-specific geometric model of the heart and torso. This issue was addressed by investigation into the feasibility of using a(More)
A number of studies have shown that performing a secondary task while executing a time-judgment task impairs performance on the latter task. However, this turns out not to be the case for certain motor secondary tasks. We show that concomitant secondary motor tasks involving pointing, when performed during a time-judgment task, can actually improve our(More)
Surgical treatment of 3- and 4-part proximal humeral fractures remains challenging. This study retrospectively evaluated functional outcomes of locked plate fixation vs hemi-arthroplasty in 57 patients with 3- and 4-part proximal humerus fractures from 2003 to 2005 with a mean follow-up time of 35 months (range, 15.7-52.7 months). Mean patient age was 56.9(More)
Studies have documented cumulative health effects of chemical and nonchemical exposures, particularly chronic environmental and social stressors. Environmental justice groups have advocated for community participation in research that assesses how these interactions contribute to health disparities experienced by low-income and communities of color.

This paper describes the Hi-NOON neural simulator, originally conceived as a general-purpose, object-oriented software system for the simulation of small systems of biological neurons, as an aid to the study of links between neurophysiology and behaviour in lower animals. As such, the artificial neurons employed are spiking in nature: to effect an(More)
