  • Smaragdakis, Georgios (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2008)
    Overlay networks have been used for adding and enhancing functionality to the end-users without requiring modifications in the Internet core mechanisms. Overlay networks have been used for a variety of popular applications ...
  • Samz, Charles (International Center for East Asian Archaeology and Cultural History, Boston University, 1957)
  • Lindholm, Charles (Cambridge University Press, 1985)
  • Kalberg, Stephen (Univ. of Chicago, 1997)
  • Cohen, Michael A.; Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1996-10)
    A neural model of peripheral auditory processing is described and used to separate features of coarticulated vowels and consonants. After preprocessing of speech via a filterbank, the model splits into two parallel channels, ...
  • Yuan, Quan; Thangali, Ashwin; Ablavsky, Vitaly; Sclaroff, Stan (Boston University Computer Science Department, 2007)
    Object detection can be challenging when the object class exhibits large variations. One commonly-used strategy is to first partition the space of possible object variations and then train separate classifiers for each ...
  • Pou, Karla M.; Massaro, Joseph M.; Hoffmann, Udo; Lieb, Kathrin; Vasan, Ramachandran S.; O'Donnell, Christopher J.; Fox, Caroline S. (American Diabetes Association, 2011-12-29)
    OBJECTIVE: The prevalence of abdominal obesity exceeds that of general obesity. We sought to determine the prevalence of abdominal subcutaneous and visceral obesity and to characterize the different patterns of fat ...
  • Dirksen, Courtney L; Howard, Julie A; Cronin-Golomb, Alice; Oscar-Berman, Marlene (Dove Medical Press, 2006)
    This study compared patterns of frontal-lobe dysfunction in alcoholics with Korsakoff's syndrome (KS: n = 9), non-Korsakoff alcoholics (AL: n = 28), patients with Parkinson's disease (PD: n = 18), and patients with rupture ...
  • Brova, George (Computer Science Department, Boston University, 2012-05-09)
    Existing models of information diffusion assume that peer influence is the main reason of the observed propagation patterns. This work examines the role of authority pressure on the observed information cascades. We model ...
  • Pessoa, Luiz; Beck, Jacob; Mingolla, Ennio (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1995-03)
    An element-arrangement pattern is composed of two types of elements that differ in the ways in which they are arranged in different regions of the pattern. We report experiments on the perceived segregation of chromatic ...
  • Mingolla, Ennio; Todd, James T.; Norman, J. Farley (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1991-12)
    How do human observers perceive a coherent pattern of motion from a disparate set of local motion measures? Our research has examined how ambiguous motion signals along straight contours are spatially integrated to obtain ...
  • Pessoa, Luiz; Mingolla, Ennio; Arend, Larry (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1995-08)
    Lightness constancy requires the visual system to somehow "parse" the input scene into illumination and reflectance components. Experiments on the perception of lightness for 3-D curved objects show that human observers ...
  • Dresp, Birgitta; Durand, Séverine; Grossberg, Stephen (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1999-11)
    The experiments reported herein probe the visual cortical mechanisms that control near-far percepts in response to two-dimensional stimuli. Figural contrast is found to be a principal factor for the emergence of percepts ...
  • Seitz, Aaron R.; Nanez, Jose E.; Holloway, Steve R.; Watanabe, Takeo (Public Library of Science, 2006-12-20)
    Critical flicker fusion thresholds (CFFT) describe when quick amplitude modulations of a light source become undetectable as the frequency of the modulation increases. The threshold at which CFF occurs has been shown to ...
  • Guenther, Frank H.; Gjaja, Marin N. (Boston University Center for Adaptive Systems and Department of Cognitive and Neural Systems, 1995-10)
    The perceptual magnet effect is one of the earliest known language-specific phenomena arising in infant speech development. The effect is characterized by a warping of perceptual space near phonemic category centers. ...
  • Almeida, Virgílio; de Almeida, Jussara; Murta, Cristina (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1996-08-05)
    This paper addresses the problem of analyzing performance of WWW servers. The web has experienced a phenomenal growth and has become the most popular Internet application. As a consequence of its large popularity, the ...
  • Barford, Paul; Crovella, Mark (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1998-10-23)
    Version 1.1 of the Hyper Text Transfer Protocol (HTTP) was principally developed as a means for reducing both document transfer latency and network traffic. The rationale for the performance enhancements in HTTP/1.1 is ...
  • Bestavros, Azer; Braoudakis, Spyridon; Panagos, Euthimios (Boston University Computer Science Department, 1993-02-05)
    Speculative Concurrency Control (SCC) [Best92a] is a new concurrency control approach especially suited for real-time database applications. It relies on the use of redundancy to ensure that serializable schedules are ...
  • Roopun, Anita K.; Kramer, Mark A.; Carracedo, Lucy M.; Kaiser, Marcus; Davies, Ceri H.; Traub, Roger D.; Kopell, Nancy J.; Whittington, Miles A. (Frontiers Research Foundation, 2008-04-08)
    The neocortex generates rhythmic electrical activity over a frequency range covering many decades. Specific cognitive and motor states are associated with oscillations in discrete frequency bands within this range, but it ...
