Studies recently accomplished on the Enteric Nervous System have shown that chronic degenerative diseases affect the Enteric Glial Cells (EGC) and, thus, the development of recognition methods able to identify whether or not the EGC are affected by these type of diseases may be helpful in its diagnoses. In this work, we propose the use of pattern recognition and machine learning techniques to evaluate if a given animal EGC image was obtained from a healthy individual or one affect by a chronic… 

Cancer Identification in Walker 256 Tumor Model Exploring Texture Properties Taken from Microphotograph of Rats Liver

Preliminary results for the automatic detection of cancer (Walker 256 tumor) in laboratory animals using preclinical microphotograph images of the subject’s liver tissue are described and it is shown that it is possible to automatically perform the identification of cancer in Laboratory animals by exploring texture properties found on the tissue taken from the liver.

Multimodal Classification: Current Landscape, Taxonomy and Future Directions

A new taxonomy for describing multimodal classification models based on trends found in recent publications is proposed and examples of how this taxonomy could be applied to existing models are presented as well as a checklist to aid in the clear and complete presentation of future models.



ImageNet classification with deep convolutional neural networks

A large, deep convolutional neural network was trained to classify the 1.2 million high-resolution images in the ImageNet LSVRC-2010 contest into the 1000 different classes and employed a recently developed regularization method called "dropout" that proved to be very effective.

Analysis of myosin-V immunoreactive myenteric neurons from arthritic rats.

Arthritis does not promote quantitative or morphological damages in general myEnteric population, however, studies in progress have revealed some significant alterations in myenteric neurons subpopulations (nitrergic and VIP-ergic neurons).

Based on the available evidence, it is predictable that enteric glia are involved in the etiopathogenesis of various pathological processes in the gut, particularly such with neuroinflammatory or neurodegenerative components.

Enteric glia and neuroprotection: basic and clinical aspects.

An update is provided on EGCs, particularly focusing on their possible neuroprotective features and the resultant enteric neuron abnormalities subsequent to EGC damage, which may have pathogenetic relevance in a variety of functional and inflammatory gut diseases.

Ethyl Acetate Fraction from Trichilia catigua Confers Partial Neuroprotection in Components of the Enteric Innervation of the Jejunum in Diabetic Rats.

The EAF from T. catigua partially conferred protection against diabetic neuropathy in the enteric nervous system.
