Recent research works have revealed that it is not difficult to spoof an automated iris recognition system using fake iris such as contact lens and paper print etc. Therefore, it is very important to detect fake iris as much as possible. In this paper, we propose a new fake iris detection method based on wavelet packet transform. First, wavelet packet(More)
Iris image quality assessment is an important part of iris recognition system because the qualities of iris images would largely influence the recognition results. In this paper, we analyze and compare several representative quality assessment methods, and then propose an effective method based on Laplacian of Gaussian operator for iris image assessment.(More)
Quantitative observation of nerve fiber sections is often complemented by morphological analysis in both research and clinical condition. However, existing manual or semi-automated methods are tedious and labour intensive, fully automated morphometry methods are complicated as the information of color or gray images captured by traditional microscopy is(More)
Recent imaging studies have shown that brain morphology and neural activity during sexual arousal differ between homosexual and heterosexual men. However, functional differences in neural networks at the resting state is unknown. The study is to characterize the association of homosexual preference with measures of regional homogeneity and functional(More)
Diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) data often suffer from artifacts caused by motion. These artifacts are especially severe in DTI data from infants, and implementing tight quality controls is therefore imperative for DTI studies of infants. Currently, routine procedures for quality assurance of DTI data involve the slice-wise visual inspection of(More)
