The growth of the vocal tract (VT) is known to be non-uniform insofar as there are regional differences in anatomic maturation. This study presents quantitative anatomic data on the growth of the oral and pharyngeal portions of the VT from 605 imaging studies for individuals between birth and 19 years. The oral (horizontal) portion of the VT was segmented(More)
PURPOSE The anatomic origin for prepubertal vowel acoustic differences between male and female subjects remains unknown. The purpose of this study is to examine developmental sex differences in vocal tract (VT) length and its oral and pharyngeal portions. METHOD Nine VT variables were measured from 605 imaging studies (magnetic resonance imaging and(More)
We present a new tensor-based morphometric framework that quantifies cortical shape variations using the local area element. The local area element is obtained from the Rie-mannian metric tensors, which are, in turn, obtained from the smooth functional parametrization of a triangle mesh. For the smooth parametrization, we have developed a novel weighted(More)
Although there are numerous publications on amygdala vol-umetry, so far there has not been many studies on modeling local amyg-dala surface shape variations in a rigorous framework. This paper present a systematic framework for modeling local amygdala shape. Using a novel surface flattening technique, we obtain a smooth mapping from the amygdala surface to(More)
We explored the possibility of developing an automatic diagnostic tool for detecting autism based on MRI measurements. Since the two previous structural imaging studies [1] [2] strongly suggested there were significant abnormality in the corpus callosum (CC) region, the methodology is concentrated in this area. For this purpose , we have developed a new(More)
Chlamydia trachomatis is among the most prevalent of sexually transmitted diseases. While Chlamydia infection is a reportable event and screening has increased over time, enhanced surveillance has not resulted in a reduction in the rate of infections, and Chlamydia infections frequently recur. The development of a preventative vaccine for Chlamydia may be(More)
With the increasing popularity of using electroencephalography (EEG) to reveal the treatment effect in drug development clinical trials, the vast volume and complex nature of EEG data compose an intriguing, but challenging, topic. In this paper the statistical analysis methods recommended by the EEG community, along with methods frequently used in the(More)
In this report, we propose a novel automatic and computationally efficient method of Fourier imaging analysis using Fourier transform. Besides Fourier transform's many applications, one can use Fourier transform to select significant frequencies of an observed noisy signal, which can be applied as a model selection tools of (weighted) Fourier series(More)
