In simulating realistic neuronal circuitry composed of diverse types of neurons, we need an elemental spiking neuron model that is capable of not only quantitatively reproducing spike times of biological neurons given in vivo-like fluctuating inputs, but also qualitatively representing a variety of firing responses to transient current inputs. Simplistic… (More)
—This paper proposes perceptual segmentation of natural color images using a fuzzy-based hierarchical algorithm and its application to the segmentation of dermoscopy images. A fuzzy-based homogeneity measure makes a fusion of the color features and the texture features. The proposed hierarchical segmentation method is performed in four stages: simple… (More)
This paper propose a real-time volume rendering hardware for both perspective and parallel projections with the scalability beyond 512 3 volume.
