Duchenne muscular dystrophy is due to genetic abnormalities in the dystrophin gene and represents one of the most frequent genetic childhood diseases. In the X-linked muscular dystrophy (mdx) mouse model of dystrophinopathy, different subtypes of skeletal muscles are affected to a varying degree albeit the same single base substitution within exon 23 of the(More)
Working memory is thought to involve separate modality-specific storage systems. Interactions between these storage systems were investigated using a novel cross-modal 2-back paradigm. 2-back, 1-back and target items were presented either visually as a verbalizable linedrawing or auditorily as a digitized spoken word. ERPs for auditory targets were(More)
We present work that has been carried out in developing the ETSI extended DSR standards ES 202 211 and ES 202 212 (2003). These standards extend the previous ETSI DSR standards: basic front-end ES 201 108 and advanced (noise robust) front-end ES 202 050 respectively. The extensions enable enhanced tonal language recognition as well as server-side speech(More)
A multi-HMM speaker-independent isolated word recognition system is described. In this system , three vector quantization methods, the LBG algorithm, the EM algorithm, and a new MGC algorithm, are used for the classiication of the speech space. These quantizations of the speech space are then used to produce three HMMs for each word in the vocabulary. In(More)
This paper investigates the retrieval of content-based polyphonic music objects in Wav and MP3 format. The system allows user to find an intended song by humming or singing a section of it. In this paper we introduce the baseline system and describe the key components including the pitch extraction in humming/singing clip, the vocal/non-vocal music(More)
In this paper, we describe the work on Chinese multi-dialect speech processing. Based on the phonetic analysis of ten Chinese dialects, we have created a Chinese super phonetic system for the Chinese speech recognition. To exam this phonetic system and develop Chinese dialect speech technology, we are building a multi-dialect speech corpus, which includes(More)
A large majority of speaker verification systems are based on frame-level acoustic features, such as Mel frequency cepstral coefficients (MFCCs) which characterize the vocal tract contribution. The most commonly used statistical GMM-UBM classifier models the distribution of MFCCs quite well. Pitch is one of the most important features which characterize(More)
