  1. 1. Computational Models for Animating 3D Virtual Faces

    Author : Marco Fratarcangeli; Robert Forchheimer; Marco Schaerf; Linköpings universitet; []
    Keywords : ;

    Abstract : Automatic synthesis of facial animation in Computer Graphics is a challenging task and although the problem is three decades old by now, there is still not a unified method to solve it. This is mainly due to the complex mathematical model required to reproduce the visual meanings of facial expressions coupled with the computational speed needed to run interactive applications.

  2. 2. Brain functional near infrared spectroscopy in human infants : cerebral cortical haemodynamics coupled to neuronal activation in response to sensory stimulation

    Author : Marco Bartocci; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; Near infrared spectroscopy; newborn; infant; brain; sensory stimulation; cortical activation;

    Abstract : The assessment of cortical activation in the neonatal brain is crucial in the study of brain development, as it provides precious information for how the newborn infant processes external or internal stimuli. Thus far functional studies of neonates aimed to assess cortical responses to certain external stimuli are very few, due to the lack of suitable techniques to monitor brain activity of the newborn.

  3. 3. Enabling Scalable Data Analysis on Cloud Resources with Applications in Life Science

    Author : Marco Capuccini; Ola Spjuth; Johan Tordsson; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; cloud computing; bioinformatics; Big Data; microservices; containers; MapReduce; Scientific Computing; Beräkningsvetenskap;

    Abstract : Over the past 20 years, the rise of high-throughput methods in life science has enabled research laboratories to produce massive datasets of biological interest. When dealing with this "data deluge" of modern biology researchers encounter two major challenges: first, there is a need for substantial technical skills for dealing with Big Data and; second, infrastructure procurement becomes difficult.

  4. 4. Cellular and molecular roles for CDC42 in angiogenesis

    Author : Marco Castro; Christer Betsholtz; Bàrbara Laviña; Rui Benedito; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; CDC42; angiogenesis; endothelial cell; vascular malformation; Biology with specialization in Molecular Cell Biology; Biologi med inriktning mot molekylär cellbiologi;

    Abstract : Angiogenesis is the physiological process by which new blood vessels grow and critically depends on the interplay between the major vascular units: endothelial cells, pericytes and smooth muscle cells. Dysfunction and mispatterning of blood vessels are associated with the progression of many vascular complications, and therefore, understanding the causes of vascular dysmorphia is a central question in vascular biology.

  5. 5. Interactive computer-aided expressive music performance : Analysis, control, modification and synthesis

    Author : Marco Fabiani; Anders Friberg; Roberto Bresin; Petri Toiviainen; KTH; []
    Keywords : ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Acoustics; Akustik;

    Abstract : This thesis describes the design and implementation process of two applications (PerMORFer and MoodifierLive) for the interactive manipulation of music performance. Such applications aim at closing the gap between the musicians, who play the music, and the listeners, who passively listen to it. READ MORE
