The administration of dopaminergic drugs produces analgesia in individuals experiencing different types of pain. Analgesia induced by these drugs at the spinal cord level is mediated by D2-like agonists, which specifically inhibit the detection of nociceptive stimuli by sensory afferents. The extent of the analgesia provided by spinal dopamine agonists(More)
We propose a new mixture model for Bayesian nonparametric inference. Rather than considering extensions from current approaches, such as the mixture of Dirichlet process model, we end up shrinking it, by making the weights less complex. We demonstrate the model and offer an explanation for the performance. Note: The following files were submitted by the(More)
In this paper we provide an explicit probability distribution for classification purposes when observations are viewed on the real line and classifications are to be based on numerical orderings. The classification model is derived from a Bayesian nonparametric mixture of Dirichlet process model; with some modifications. The resulting approach then more(More)
BACKGROUND In countries such as United States and European Nations changes have been proposed regarding to duty and academic structure of specialists in training, this implies adjustments in the norms concerning the number of hours a week that residents work. The main argument which has underpinned such transformations is based on the assumption that(More)
