This dissertation explores the circumstances that inspired the Infanta Isabel Clara Eugenia, Princess of Spain, Archduchess of Austria, and Governess General of the Southern Netherlands to commission Peter Paul Rubens's ...
Stimulus Temporal Coherence Strongly Influences Rapid Plasticity in Primary Auditory Cortex under Global Attention
Temporal coherence of stimulus features is a key property of sounds that emanate from single source. Consequently, it is important to understand how it may influence the direction and extent of the rapid plasticity postulated ...
Analysis of Stopping Active Learning based on Stabilizing Predictions
(Association for Computational Linguistics, 2013-08)
