Developing Quantitative Methodologies for the Digital Humanities: A Case Study of 20th Century American Commentary on Russian Literature
Using scientific methods in the humanities is at the forefront of objective literary analysis. However, processing big data is particularly complex when the subject matter is qualitative rather than numerical. Large ...
Temporal dynamics of MEG phase information during speech perception: Segmentation and neural communication using mutual information and phase locking
The incoming speech stream contains a rich amount of temporal information. In particular, information on slow time scales, the delta and theta band (125 - 1000 ms, 1 - 8 Hz), corresponds to prosodic and syllabic ...
Reducing Electronic Information Overload
College students receive a wealth of information through electronic communications that they are unable to process efficiently. This information overload negatively impacts their affect, which is officially defined in ...
Climate and Social Stress: Implications for Security Analysis
Climate change can reasonably be expected to increase the frequency and intensity of a variety of potentially disruptive environmental events--slowly at first, but then more quickly. It is prudent to expect to be surprised ...
Effect of Addiction Modeling Reinforcement Schedules on Delay Discounting
Elevated delay discounting, in which delayed rewards quickly lose value as a function of time, is associated with substance use and abuse. Currently, the direction of causation is unclear: while some research indicates ...
A Video Game-Integrated Electromyography Biofeedback Device for Use in Physical Therapy
We present a novel system to be used in the rehabilitation of patients with forearm injuries. The system uses surface electromyography (sEMG) recordings from a wireless sleeve to control video games designed to provide ...
The Application of an Exogenous Linear and Radial Electrical Field to an In Vitro Chronic Diabetic Ulcer Model for Evaluation as a Potential Treatment
Chronic diabetic ulcers affect approximately 15% of patients with diabetes worldwide. Currently, applied electric fields are being investigated as a reliable and cost-effective treatment. This in vitro study aimed to ...
Algae-Based Purification of Landfill Biogas Using a CO2 Removal System and Helical Photobioreactor in Series
Biogas is a mixture of methane and other gases. In its crude state, it contains carbon dioxide (CO2) that reduces its energy efficiency and hydrogen sulfide (H2S) that is toxic and highly corrosive. Because chemical methods ...
Investigation of Blast Wave Propagation: Correlating External Pressures to Brain Injury Predictors
Blast-induced Traumatic Brain Injury (bTBI) is the signature injury of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars; however, current understanding of bTBI is insufficient. In this study, novel analysis methods were developed to investigate ...
