A Facial Motion Capture System Based on Neural Network Classifier Using RGB-D Data

Analysis of live and dynamic movements by computer is one of the areas that draws a great deal of interest to itself. One of the important parts of this area is the motion capture process that can be based on the appearance and facial mode estimation. The aim of this

Comparing the Effect of Neurofeedback and Verbal Self-Instruction on Children Afflicted with Attention-Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder: A Cognitive- Behavioral Approach

Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder is one of the developmental-behavioral disorders whose prevalence is between three to five years of age. There are several ways to cope with this problem. Two common methods for treating this disorder are verbal self-instruction and neurofeedback. This study intended to compare the effect of neurofeedback

To What Extent Is Free Will Actually Free? The Answer of Neurosciences

Even though at the beginning of the 1980s the results of the first neuroscience experiments made some researchers label free will as an “illusion”, researches of recent years have unexpectedly changed this perspective. It is raised the issue of post-classical, post-dualistic views in which free will can no longer be

Epilepsy.

A Factor Analysis Model for Dimension Reduction of Outcome Factors in Neonatal Seizure Context

There is a controversial concept among many studies whether neonatal seizures are risk factors for neonatal death and/or neurodevelopment impairments (in case of newborn survivors). Multiple factors have been analyzed in literature, including perinatal factors, etiology factors, seizures characteristics factors, investigations findings factors, therapy-related factors. This paper aims to review

Review of Recent Trends in Measuring the Computing Systems Intelligence

Many difficult problems, from the philosophy of computation point of view, could require computing systems that have some kind of intelligence in order to be solved. Recently, we have seen a large number of artificial intelligent systems used in a number of scientific, technical and social domains. Usage of such

Is the Gaze Behavior During Stair Walking Affected by Pregnancy?

During stair walking, there is an increased risk of falling among pregnant women. A substantial contribution for the foot placement and balance control during stair walking is provided by vision. The purpose of this study was to determine whether there are any pregnancy-related changes in gaze behavior during the stair

Phonocardiograms.

Classification of Phonocardiograms with Convolutional Neural Networks

The diagnosis of heart diseases from heart sounds is a matter of many years. This is the effect of having too many people with heart diseases in the world. Studies on heart sounds are usually based on classification for helping doctors. In other words, these studies are a substructure of

Neuroethics, brain's physical support.

Could Neuroenhancement be an Ethical Approach in Social Practice?

Neuroethics is an interdisciplinary field of research aimed at understanding the consciousness and the mind through the relationship between it and the brain’s physical support. Among other things, the ethical perspective refers to the acceptability of the practices used to modify human behavior through interventions on the nervous system. Neuroethics
