Since its introduction, frequent-pattern mining has been the subject of numerous studies, including incremental updating. Many existing incremental mining algorithms are Apriori-based, which are not easily adoptable to FP-tree-based frequent-pattern mining. In this paper, we propose a novel tree structure, called CanTree (canonical-order tree), that(More)
Functional electrical stimulation (FES) is able to restore motor function of spinal cord injured (SCI) patients. To make adaptive FES control taking into account the actual muscle state with muscular feedback information, torque estimation and prediction are important to be provided beforehand. Evoked EMG (eEMG) has been found to be highly correlated with(More)
Highlights: A model for calibration of a full-waveform, dual-wavelength terrestrial lidar (DWEL) couples a logistic telescope efficiency function with an inverse power function to provide apparent reflectance from intensity with range. Separate models for each laser are fitted together and constrained to provide dual-wavelength spectral fidelity with a(More)
Trans-2,4-dimethoxystibene (S(3)) is a synthetic stilbene. In this study, S(3) was investigated in terms of its neuroprotective effect against the toxicity induced by beta-amyloid(25-35) (Abeta(25-35)) both in vitro and in vivo. Protection by S(3) was studied at the in vivo level using a model of intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) injection of Abeta(25-35) in(More)
One of the challenging issues in computational rehabilitation is that there is a large variety of patient situations depending on the type of neurological disorder. Human characteristics are basically subject specific and time variant; for instance, neuromuscular dynamics may vary due to muscle fatigue. To tackle such patient specificity and time-varying(More)
In the paper, a novel machine learning method, SimBoost, is proposed to handle the software fault-prediction problem when highly skewed datasets are used. Although the method, proved by empirical results, can make the datasets much more balanced, the accuracy of the prediction is still not satisfactory. Therefore, a fuzzy-based representation of the(More)
Trans-2, 4-dimethoxystibene (S3) is a synthetic stilbenes. In the present study, S3 was investigated to assess its neuroprotective effect against the toxicity induced by Abeta(25-35) in hypercholesterolemic rats. Rats were fed with hypercholesterolemic chow for six weeks, and then received a single intracerebroventricular (i.c.v.) injection of Abeta(25-35)(More)
The signal measured with an electromyogram (EMG) is the summation of all action potentials of motor units active at a certain time. According to previous literature, one can establish the relationship between torque and EMG/activations in a forward way, i.e., employing EMG of multiple channels to estimate the joint torque. Once the relationship is(More)
