Where can pixel counting area estimates meet user-defined accuracy requirements?

François Waldner
Pixel counting is probably the most popular way to estimate class areas from satellite-derived maps. It involves determining the number of pixels allocated to a specific thematic class and multiplying it by the pixel area. In the presence of asymmetric classification errors, the pixel counting estimator is biased. The overarching objective of this article is to define the applicability conditions of pixel counting so that the estimates are below a user-defined accuracy target. By reasoning...

Can a low-cost eye-tracker "stand-up" to a mobile test of precision and accuracy

Shannon Collins, Audrey Hooks & Jake Kurczek
However, new low-cost tracking is now making eye tracking more accessible and mobile. Previous research (Dalmaijer, 2015) indicated that both the EyeTribe and the EyeLink ($40,000 high quality eye tracker) had similar spatial precision and accuracy, region of interest and pupilometry analysis abilities. In the present experiment we tested the low-cost tracker (EyeTribe) in both a standard and “mobile” (i.e. standing/holding tablet) conditions in hopes to validate its potential use outside the lab (e.g., sideline...

Hurt feelings and four letter words: Swearing alleviates the pain of social distress [2015 pre-print]

Michael Philipp & Laura Lombardo
Preprint manuscript (11 December 2015)
Abstract Research from the past 40 years demonstrates that social and physical pain are inextricably linked. Correspondingly, methods for alleviating physical pain are increasingly found to also attenuate feelings of social pain. Recent evidence suggests that swearing may serve to reduce feelings of physical pain. Given the considerable overlap between social and physical pain, the present study examined whether swearing similarly attenuates feelings of social pain and the consequences of...

Spontaneous eyeblink rate as a predictor of dopamine: Individual differences across previous collision sport history

Audrey Hooks, Shannon Collins & Jake Kurczek
Humans and animals identify, pursue and achieve rewards and learn from rewarded experiences through a reward system The mesolimbic reward system is responsible for a number of psychological mechanisms including hedonic response to reward and incentive salience or colloquially liking and wanting Eye-blink rate is a reliable proxy for dopaminergic functioning (Taylor et al., 1999) Altered dysfunction has been detected in a number of clinical populations, including schizophrenia (Chen, Lam, Chen, & Nguyen, 1996), and...

Assessing and validating a 3D motion tracking balance assessment.

Angela Richardson, Thomas Johnson & Jake Kurczek
Previous research has investigated the BESS and found that scores were highly varied across experimenters.
This research reveals a number of potential flaws within the BESS. Beyond the problems of subjective scoring, the BESS only detects dysfunction so that most healthy people and even people affected by mild concussions score perfectly well on the test.
In the present experiment, we look to assess the BESS test and compare subjective assessment of balance ability.
By identifying...

International infectious diseases teaching to undergraduate medical students: A successful European collaborative experience*

Caroline Charlier, Ingólfur Johannessen, Claire L Mackintosh, David Wilks, Roberto Cauda, Federica I Wolf & Claire Le Jeunne
Context: The emerging global-health paradigm requires medical teaching to be continuously redefined and updated; to this end, transnational approaches should be encouraged and medical training harmonized. Infectious diseases (ID) teaching in the current context of emerging infections, fast-increasing bacterial resistance and large-scale human migration, was chosen to develop a common international course. Objective: We report the successful implementation of a joint European undergraduate course aiming to (i) develop a common ID core curriculum among European...

Central immunological position of the human histo (blood) group O(H).

Peter Arend
Prokaryotic "blood group A/B-like" antigenic structures apparently induce basically cross-reactive anti-A/B immunoglobulins, which due to clonal selection neither arise in blood group A nor in B individuals but occur exclusively in blood group O. While bacterial endotoxins non-specifically stimulate the formation of all immunoglobulins, most likely involving the anti-A/B isoagglutinins, a definite, adaptive immunological induction of these agglutinins appears to be restricted to blood group O(H) individuals. In the non-O blood groups, anti-A/B reactivity is...

Degradation of alkali lignin by two ascomycetes and free radical scavenging activity of the products

Anand Barapatre & Harit Jha
Biodegradation and bioconversion of extracted alkali lignin was performed under varying concentrations of carbon and nitrogen sources, by two potential Ascomycetes ligninolytic fungus isolated from soil. Fungus, F10 was identified as Aspergillus flavus, while APF4 as Emericella nidulans based upon closed similarity with their morphology and high homology in 18S rRNA gene sequences. The alkali lignin degradation was checked in term of disappearance of lignin content and colority. Selected fungus, degraded 19–41.6% of alkali lignin...
