    In this article, we propose an Intelligent Medical Diagnostic System (IMDS) accessible through common web-based interface, to on-line perform initial screening for osteoporosis. The fundamental approaches which construct the proposed system are mainly based on the fuzzy-neural theory, which can...

    Early experience plays a powerful role in shaping adult neural circuitry and behavior. In barn owls, early experience markedly influences sound localization. Juvenile owls that learn new, abnormal associations between auditory cues and locations in visual space as a result of abnormal visual...

    The study of unsaturated soil is essential for engineers who construct dams, tunnels, water conveyance channels, mines, and other structures. Groundwater must also be taken into account when devising measures to control ground settlement or subsidence caused by dewatering. An artificial neural...

    In many species, neurons responding to visual motion at higher processing stages are often specifically tuned to particular flow fields; however, the neural circuitry that leads to this selectivity is not yet understood. Here we have studied this problem in 'vertical system' (VS) cells of the...
