    Long-term cultural experiences influence neural response to one's own and friend's faces. The present study investigated whether an individual's culturally specific pattern of neural activity to faces can be modulated by temporary access to other cultural frameworks using a self-construal...

    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...

    Rhythmic body motions observed in animal locomotion are known to be controlled by neuronal circuits called central pattern generators (CPGs). It appears that CPGs are energy efficient controllers that cooperate with biomechanical and environmental constraints through sensory feedback. In...

    The ability to detect agency is fundamental for understanding the social world. Underlying this capacity are neural circuits that respond to patterns of intentional biological motion in the superior temporal sulcus and temporoparietal junction. Here we show that the brain's blood oxygenation...

    During natural behavior, the head may simultaneously undergo rotation, transduced by the semicircular canals, and translation, transduced by the otolith organs. It has been demonstrated in monkey that the vestibulo-ocular reflexes (VORs) elicited by both endorgans (i.e., the angular and linear...

    In this paper, constructive learning is used to train the neural networks. The results of neural networks are obtained but its result is not in comprehensible form or in a black box form. Our goal is to use an important and desirable model to identify sets of input variable which results in a...
