Low-grade glioma (LGG) patients are typically accompanied by varying degrees of intellectual impairments. However, the neural mechanisms underlying intellectual decline have not yet been well understood. The aim of this study is to investigate the relationship between possibly altered functional brain network properties and intellectual decline in LGG(More)
Recently, low-rank representation (LRR) method has achieved great success in subspace clustering, which aims to cluster the data points that lie in a union of low-dimensional subspace. Given a set of data points, LRR seeks the lowest rank representation among the many possible linear combinations of the bases in a given dictionary or in terms of the data(More)
Web service composition is the act of combining existed services to meet the requirement of customers. It requires allocating suitable resources to a set of services that constitute a composite service. The problem is complicated by the fact that the availability of resources may be uncertain and dynamic. Thus, some new challenges appear in this area, such(More)
BACKGROUND Microsurgery is an option of choice for large vestibular schwannomas (VSs). Anatomical and functional preservation of facial nerve (FN) is still a challenge in these surgeries. FNs are often displaced and morphologically changed by large VSs. Preoperative identification of FN with magnetic resonance (MR) diffusion tensor tracking (DTT) and(More)
An ensemble in data mining is the strategy that combines a set of different classifiers together to generate an integrated classification system to classify new instances. In the early research, an ensemble outperforms any of its individual components. Stacking is one of the most influential ensemble among the proposed ensemble schemes. Stacking applies a(More)
INTRODUCTION The microRNA, miR-210, is frequently associated with hypoxia induction, and an increase in its levels is often correlated with poor prognosis in many solid tumours. The present study examines the levels of miR-210 in glioma tumours of multiple origins to determine if an association can be established with disease progression. MATERIAL AND(More)
Pay-how-you-drive (PHYD), which has already been recognized as the most promising differentiated commercial vehicle insurance product in usage based insurance (UBI), can objectively analyze the risk level of each insured vehicle by analyzing its driving style from raw data collected by on-board diagnosis (OBD) module set up on it. Finding certain kinds of(More)
PURPOSE Ketamine is commonly used in pediatric anesthesia but may cause neurodegeneration in young brains. The aim of the study is to use an animal model to characterize the role of microRNA 137 (miR-137) in ketamine-induced neurodegeneration in neonatal hippocampus. METHODS Young Sprague-Dawley Rats (1 month old) was systemically administrated with(More)
This thesis introduces the status and methods of data mining, aiming at the Nantong University campus network users access data preprocessing analysis, using the K-means clustering algorithm combined with SQL Server 2008 and Visual Studio 2008 business intelligence project function for data mining analysis, and the mining experimental results are analyzed(More)
