The nature of the signal undershoot observed in the inter-stimulation intervals in fMRI studies using a block paradigm consisting of alternating periods of visual stimulation and rest was investigated using the following single shot EPI sequences: gradient echo (GRE), spin echo (SE), spin echo with additional flow dephasing gradients and inversion recovery(More)
Gradient-echo (GRE) and spin-echo (SE) EPI BOLD sequences were used to quantitate the effect of visual stimulation. Both sequences showed a positive BOLD response during stimulation and a negative BOLD response in the interstimulation intervals. The relaxation rate changes during stimulation were larger for the GRE sequence than for the SE sequence, whereas(More)
Recording engineers, mixers and producers play important yet often overlooked roles in defining the sound of a particular record, artist or group. The placement of different sound sources in space using stereo panning information is an important component of the production process. Audio classification systems typically convert stereo signals to mono and to(More)
Evaporation rates and total energy loads from an unoccupied, heated, outdoor pool in Fort Collins, Colorado were investigated. Pool and air temperatures, humidity, thermal radiation, wind speed, and water loss due to evaporation were measured over 2 1 test periods ranging from 1.1 to 16.2 hours during August and September, 1992. Data were analyzed and(More)
Localizing sensorimotor areas with high resolution functional MRI is of considerable interest for a wide range of medical applications from the preoperative planning of neurosurgical interventions to determining the course of neuroplastic reorganisation after brain lesions. We examined the effect of the stimulation frequency on the blood oxygen level(More)
This paper presents a new force-sensitive surface designed for playing music. A prototype system has been implemented using a passive capacitive sensor, a commodity mul-tichannel audio interface, and decoding software running on a laptop computer. This setup has been a successful, low-cost route to a number of experiments in intimate musical control.
Marsyas is a software framework for building efficient complex audio processing systems and applications. Although originally designed for Music Information Retrieval (MIR) tasks in the past few years it has been expanded to include any type of audio analysis or synthesis. Complex Audio processing systems are defined hierarchically through composition using(More)
