The developing chick optic tectum is a widely used model of corticogenesis and angiogenesis. Cell behaviors involved in corticogenesis and angiogenesis share several regulatory mechanisms. In this way the 3D organizations of both systems adapt to each other. The consensus about the temporally and spatially organized progression of the optic tectum(More)
When segmenting magnetic resonance (MR) images, a wide range of useless information arises, which has to be discarded as a step prior to classifying the different cerebral cortex areas. To obtain effective results during the classification process, it is necessary to work with images solely containing the brain and eliminate the cranium and surrounding(More)
The development of microarray technology has enabled scientists to measure the expression of thousands of genes simultaneously, resulting in a surge of interest in several disciplines throughout biology and medicine. While data clustering has been used for decades in image processing and pattern recognition, in recent years it has joined this wave of(More)
Biofilms by the hyperhalophilic archaea Halorubrum sp. and Halobacterium sp. were analyzed, and for the first time the progression of structural features and the developmental parameters of these sessile populations are described. Optical slicing and digital analysis of sequential micrographs showed that their three dimensional structure was microorganism(More)
One of the most interesting fields of research in Digital Image Processing is the segmentation of an image into different objects. The detection of regions with different textures is one of the techniques used to achieve this objective. These techniques differ among each other in the texture parameters used and the way to obtain them. In this work the(More)
