MOTIVATION Intrinsically disordered proteins play a crucial role in numerous regulatory processes. Their abundance and ubiquity combined with a relatively low quantity of their annotations motivate research toward the development of computational models that predict disordered regions from protein sequences. Although the prediction quality of these methods(More)
—In this paper, we introduce a novel approach to time-series prediction realized both at the linguistic and numerical level. It exploits fuzzy cognitive maps (FCMs) along with a recently proposed learning method that takes advantage of real-coded genetic algorithms. FCMs are used for modeling and qualitative analysis of dynamic systems. Within the framework(More)
Fuzzy cognitive maps (FCMs) are a convenient tool for modeling of dynamic systems by means of concepts connected by cause-effect relationships. The FCM models can be developed either manually (by the experts) or using an automated learning method (from data). Some of the methods from the latter group, including recently proposed Nonlinear Hebbian Learning(More)
The presence and topographical distribution of nitrergic neurons in the enteric nervous system (ENS) of the pig small intestine have been investigated by means of nitric oxide synthase (NOS) immunocytochemistry and nicotinamide dinucleotide phosphate diaphorase (NADPHd) histochemistry. Both techniques yielded similar results, thus confirming that within the(More)
Fuzzy cognitive maps (FCMs) are convenient and widely used architectures for modeling dynamic systems, which are characterized by a great deal of flexibility and adaptability. Several recent works in this area concern strategies for the development of FCMs. Although a few fully automated algorithms to learn these models from data have been introduced, the(More)
Calcitonin-gene-related-peptide (CGRP)-like immunoreactivity was localized in nerve fibres, neuronal somata and in mucosal endocrine cells of the human small intestine. Immunoreactive enteric neurons were more numerous in the submucous plexuses than in the myenteric plexus. Morphologically, they predominantly had the appearance of type II neurons. The(More)
Fuzzy cognitive maps (FCM) are useful tool for simulating and analyzing dynamic systems. The FCMs have a very simple structure, and thus are very easy to comprehend and use. Despite of the simplicity, they have been successfully adopted in many different areas, such as electrical engineering, medicine political science, international relations, military(More)
