We present budda (BUlge/Disk Decomposition Analysis), a new code devoted to perform a two-dimensional bulge/disk decomposition directly from the images of galaxies. The bulge component is fitted with a generalized Sérsic profile whereas disks have an exponential profile. No other components are included. Bars and other sub-structures, like lenses, rings,(More)
Alzheimer's disease is the most common cause of dementia, yet hard to diagnose precisely without invasive techniques, particularly at the onset of the disease. This work approaches image analysis and classification of synthetic multispectral images composed by diffusion-weighted magnetic resonance (MR) cerebral images for the evaluation of cerebrospinal(More)
Multispectral image analysis is a relatively promising field of research with applications in several areas, such as medical imaging and satellite monitoring. However, a considerable number of current methods of analysis are based on parametric statistics. Alternatively, some methods in Computational Intelligence are inspired by biology and other sciences.(More)
Usando um espectrômetro baseado em um SQUID (dispositivo supercondutor de interferência quântica), de alta temperatura de transição, polarizado continuamente, medimos sinais de ressonância magnética nuclear (RMN) de várias amostras a temperatura ambiente em campos magnéticos na faixa entre 0,05 mT e 2 mT. É possível observar sinais de prótons em uma amostra(More)
The cream layer is a complex heterogeneous material of biological origin which forms spontaneously at the air-milk interface. Here, it is studied the crumpling of a single cream layer packing under its own weight at room temperature in threedimensional space. The structure obtained in these circumstances has low volume fraction and anomalous fractal(More)
Automatic analysis of locomotion in studies of behavior and development is of great importance because it eliminates the subjective influence of evaluators on the study. This study aimed to develop and test the reproducibility of a system for automated analysis of locomotor activity in rats. For this study, 15 male Wistar were evaluated at P8, P14, P17,(More)
A spectrometer incorporating a high transition temperature dc superconducting quantum interference device ~SQUID! is used to obtain nuclear magnetic resonance signals from protons in mineral oil at room temperature in fields up to 3 mT. The spatial separation between the SQUID magnetometer at 77 K and the sample at room temperature is less than 1 mm. At 2(More)
