The neuropharmacology of capsaicin: review of some recent observations.
Detection of citrus canker using hyperspectral reflectance imaging with spectral information divergence
It is demonstrated that hyperspectral imaging technique coupled with the SID based image classification method could be used for discriminating citrus canker from other confounding diseases. Expand
Corticotropin-releasing factor directly mediates colonic responses to stress.

- 1 October 1987
Data suggest that endogenous CRF may mediate stress-induced changes in colonic function, and the actions of exogenous CRF mimicked the effects of stress on the motor activity of the gastrointestinal tract. Expand
Novel peptidic mu opioid antagonists: pharmacologic characterization in vitro and in vivo.

- 1 May 1989
A series of six synthetic octapeptides, structurally related to somatostatin, demonstrate high affinity and selectivity for mu opioid receptors in radioligand binding assays and none of these compounds showed antinociceptive actions when administered i.c.v. in mice. Expand
Identification of citrus disease using color texture features and discriminant analysis
The citrus industry is an important constituent of Florida's overall agricultural economy. Proper disease control measures must be undertaken in citrus groves to minimize losses. Technological… Expand
Bis-penicillamine enkephalins possess highly improved specificity toward delta opioid receptors.

- 1 October 1983
The conformationally restricted, cyclic, disulfide-containing, enkephalin analogs and the bis-Pen-containing analogs provide an order of magnitude increase in delta receptor selectivity. Expand
Hyperspectral and multispectral imaging for evaluating food safety and quality
This paper presents hyperspectral and multispectral imaging technologies in the area of food safety and quality evaluation, with an introduction, demonstration, and summarization of current spectral imaging techniques available to the food industry for practical commercial use. Expand
Stress-induced changes in intestinal transit in the rat: a model for irritable bowel syndrome.
It is concluded that wrap-restraint stress produces different effects on different regions of the intestine, suggesting that the small and large intestines are independently regulated and can respond differently to different stimuli. Expand
Low and high-level visual feature-based apple detection from multi-modal images
This research discusses the development of a machine vision system, capable of recognizing occluded green apples within a tree canopy, which uses both thermal infra-red and color image modalities in order to achieve improved performance. Expand
BACKPROPAGATION NEURAL NETWORK DESIGN AND EVALUATION FOR CLASSIFYING WEED SPECIES USING COLOR IMAGE TEXTURE
Color co-occurrence method (CCM) texture statistics were used as input variables for a backpropagation (BP) neural network weed classification model. Thirty-three unique CCM texture statistic inputs… Expand
