Classic transformation methods have been widely and efficiently used in image processing areas, such as image de-noising, image segmentation, feature detection, and compression. Based on their compact signal and image representation ability, we apply the transform based techniques on the video recognition area to extract discriminative information from each(More)
BACKGROUND AND PURPOSE Evidence-based data to guide the management of status epilepticus (SE) after failure of primary treatment are still scarce and the alternate needs to be found when phenytoin (PHT) is not available or contraindicated. Comparison of intravenous (IV) valproate (VPA) and diazepam (DZP) infusion has not been conducted in adults with SE.(More)
JAK2V617F, an activation mutant form of tyrosine kinase JAK2, is found in the majority of patients with myeloproliferative neoplasms (MPNs) including polycythemia vera (PV), essential thrombocythemia (ET) and primary myelofibrosis. Overwhelming studies have demonstrated the pathogenicity of JAK2V617F. 1 However, some still doubt that JAK2V617F is a primary(More)
Dynamic feature description in human action recognition Ruoyun Gao ii Acknowledgement I wish to thank all those who helped me. Without them, I could not have completed this project. Firstly, I wish to express my deepest gratitude to Dr. Michael S. Lew for his valuable suggestions and unwavering support during my research project and graduation project.(More)
The objectives of this study were to determine the effects of conjugated linoleic acid (CLA) or betaine on the growth performance, carcass characteristics and fatty acid composition in backfat and belly fat of pigs fed distillers dried grains with solubles (DDGS). Thirty-two (60±2 kg) crossbred barrows (Duroc×Landrace×Yorkshine) were assigned to one of four(More)
TIFA (TNF receptor associated factor (TRAF)-interacting protein with a Forkhead-associated (FHA) domain), also called T2BP, was first identified using a yeast two-hybrid screening. TIFA contains a FHA domain, which directly binds phosphothreonine and phosphoserine, and a consensus TRAF6-binding motif. TIFA-mediated oligomerization and poly-ubiquitinylation(More)
The South China Craton consisting of the Yangtze and Cathaysia Blocks has figured importantly in the Neoproterozoic supercontinent of Rodinia. However, its lack of Grenville-age structures and metamor-phism and the presence of Paleoproterozoic high-grade metamorphism and S-type magmatism raise questions about the timing and nature of the Yangtze–Cathaysia(More)
Tetrodotoxin-sensitive persistent sodium currents, INaP, that activate at subthreshold voltages, have been detected in numerous vertebrate and invertebrate neurons. These currents are believed to be critical for regulating neuronal excitability. However, the molecular mechanism underlying INaP is controversial. In this study, we identified an INaP with a(More)
interest point based human action recognition, local descriptors are used to represent information in the neighbourhood around each extracted space-time interest point. The performance of the action recognition systems highly depends on the invariance and distinctiveness of the local spatio-temporal descriptor adopted. In this paper, we propose a new(More)
