All of the 17 autistic children studied in the present paper showed disturbances of movement that with our methods could be detected clearly at the age of 4-6 months, and sometimes even at birth. We used the Eshkol-Wachman Movement Analysis System in combination with still-frame videodisc analysis to study videos obtained from parents of children who had(More)
Kinesiologic analysis of the gaits of 21 autistic, 15 normal, and five hyperactive-aggressive children revealed that the autistic patients had (a) reduced stride lengths, (b) increased stance times, (c) increased hip flexion at "toe-off," and (d) decreased knee extension and ankle dorsiflexion at ground contact. In many respects, the gait differences(More)
We analyze the behavioral and motor disturbances in childhood autism. On the basis of analogy to signs and conditions seen in adult neurology, we propose that the syndrome results from dysfunction in a system of bilateral neural structures that includes the ring of mesolimbic cortex located in the mesial frontal and temporal lobes, the neostriatum, and the(More)
An analysis of the computerized tomography scans of 17 patients with autistic behavior was carried out by investigators independent from those selecting the subjects. Mild abnormalities of the ventricular system were noted in several scans (increased size, altered left/right relation of lateral ventricles), and in three scans major hydrocephalus and(More)
Analysis of the abnormalities present in autistic patients, using standard methods of clinical inference, leads to the conclusion that the manifestations of childhood autism correlate best with the manifestations of dysfunction in the frontal tier of the ring of phylogenetically older cortex located on the mesial surface of the frontal and temporal lobes(More)
image error measures, image scaling, image interpolation, super-resolution, neural networks We propose a general method for gradient-based training of neural network (NN) models to scale multi-dimensional signal data. In the case of image data, the goal is to fit models that produce images of high perceptual quality, as opposed to simply a high peak signal(More)
An approach to computer modeling of the time-current characteristics of protective devices that relies on interactive manipulation and fitting of the curves, which are modeled mathematically as splines is presented. The approach is much easier to use than the commonly used curve-fitting methods, which are reviewed, and it does not require a digitizer. It(More)
This paper presents a novel self-similarity based approach for the problem of vanishing point estimation in man-made scenes. A vanishing point (VP) is the convergence point of a pencil (a concurrent line set), that is a perspective projection of a corresponding parallel line set in the scene. Unlike traditional VP detection that relies on extraction and(More)
