  • Propagation of the Action Potential

    There are two types of regenerating nerve fibers: unmyelinated and myelinated. Unmyelinated fibers are generally small (diameter up to 0.0013 mm or 0.00005 in.) and have a slow speed [up to 1.5 meters/second (m/s) or 3.2 mph]. Two- thirds of the fibers in the body are of this type; they are used for chores for which low speed is adequate, such as the reporting of pain and temperature. A regenerating axon fires (starts to generate an action potential [AP]) when the voltage across the membrane rises above a threshold level such as 8 mV. The AP propagates like an ocean wave; the conduction speed of an unmyelinated fiber is determined by the forward speed of the wavefront at the 8-mV level. Myelinated fibers are relatively large (diameter up to 0.022 mm or 0.0009 in.) and have a high speed (up to 130 m/s or 290 miles per hour [mph]). They are used for the retrieval and processing of information where high speed is vital. A myelinated fiber is high speed because its membrane is relatively thick, but it is interrupted by nodes at which the AP is regenerated. The conduction speed is determined by the time taken for the AP to reach the 8-mV level from one node to the next. This time is approximately constant, 17 µs, regardless of nerve fiber diameter. Nonregenerative or weakly regenerative sections of nerve fiber are reflected in lower-than-normal conduction speeds; this is important clinical evidence for nerve dysfunction, such as in multiple sclerosis.

  • Conclusions

    "Consider for a moment the layers of structure and meaning that are attached to concepts like lawsuit, birthday party, fire, mother, walrus, cabbage, or king.... If I tell you that a house burned down, and that the fire started at a child's birthday party, you will think immediately of the candles on the cake and perhaps of the many paper decorations. You will not, In all probability, find yourself thinking about playing pin-the- tall-on-the-donkey or about the color of the cake's icing or about the fact that birthdays come once a year. These concepts are there when you need them, but they do not seem to slow down the search for a link between fires and birthday parties."The human mind can do many remarkable things. One of the most remarkable Is its ability to store an enormous quantity and variety of knowledge and to locate and retrieve whatever part of it is relevant in a particular context quickly and in most cases almost without effort. "If we are ever to create an artificial intelligence with human-like abilities," Fahlman writes, "we will have to endow it with a comparable knowledge-handling facility; current knowledge-base systems fall far short of this goal. This report describes an approach to the problem of representing and using realworld knowledge in a computer."The system developed by Fahlman and presented in this book consists of two more-or-less independent parts. The first is the system's parallel network memory scheme: "Knowledge Is stored as a pattern of interconnections of very simple parallel processing elements: node units that can store a dozen or so distinct marker-bits, and link units that can propagate those markers from node to node, in parallel through the network. Using these marker-bit movements, the parallel network system can p erform searches and many common deductions very quickly."The second (and more traditional) part of the knowledge-base system presented here is NETL, "a vocabulary of conventions and processing algorithms--in some sense, a language--for representing various kinds of knowledge as nodes and links in the network.... NETL incorporates a number of representational techniques--new ideas and new combinations of old ideas-which allow it to represent certain real-world concepts more precisely and more efficiently than earlier systems.... NETL has been designed to operate efficiently on the parallel network machine described above, and to exploit this machine's special abilities. Most of the ideas in NETL are applicable to knowledge-base systems on serial machines as well."

  • Dendritic Summation

    The input architecture of many neurons consists of a treelike structure called a _dendritic tree_. The branches gather in as many as 100,000 messages, coming from the axons of preceding neurons, via synaptic and electrical gap junctions. The branches are nonregenerating unmyelinated fibers, so signals are rapidly attenuated. As the dendritic potential (DP) propagates toward the neuron body (the trunk of the tree), it gains time width as it loses voltage height. The neuron body is excited if many action potentials (APs) arrive more or less simultaneously at the periphery, but junctions located closer to the neuron body suffer less attenuation, so fewer of them have to be excited simultaneously to stimulate the neuron. The latter, in effect, gathers in all of the dendritic inputs and fires, as usual, when the net summation (after attenuation) exceeds the threshold. If the neuron is a type that generates a graded potential, the output is simply proportional to the net summation of attenuated DPs. There is a very important class of _inhibitory_ inputs; because their inputs are relatively weak, inhibitory junctions are located on or close to the neuron body. In effect, inhibitory inputs raise the firing threshold of the neuron. The outputs resulting from several simple combinations of input signals are examined in detail.

    At its very core multimedia information retrieval means the process of searching for and finding multimedia documents; the corresponding research field is concerned with building the best possible multimedia search engines. The intriguing bit here is that the query itself can be a multimedia excerpt: For example, when you walk around in an unknown place and stumble across an interesting landmark, would it not be great if you could just take a picture with your mobile phone and send it to a service that finds a similar picture in a database and tells you more about the building -- and about its significance, for that matter? This book goes further by examining the full matrix of a variety of query modes versus document types. How do you retrieve a music piece by humming? What if you want to find news video clips on forest fires using a still image? The text discusses underlying techniques and common approaches to facilitate multimedia search engines from metadata driven retrieval, via iggy-back text retrieval where automated processes create text surrogates for multimedia, automated image annotation and content-based retrieval. The latter is studied in great depth looking at features and distances, and how to effectively combine them for efficient retrieval, to a point where the readers have the ingredients and recipe in their hands for building their own multimedia search engines. Supporting users in their resource discovery mission when hunting for multimedia material is not a technological indexing problem alone. We look at interactive ways of engaging with repositories through browsing and relevance feedback, roping in geographical context, and providing visual summaries for videos. The book concludes with an overview of state-of-the-art research projects in the area of multimedia information retrieval, which gives an indication of the research and development trends and, thereby, a glimpse of the future world.

  • Lightning and Surge Protection

    Surge voltages are a significant hazard in power transmission and distribution systems. Surges are the causes of much equipment failure, such as downed conductors, fires, and step and touch potentials, which may injure people nearby. The design manufacture and installation of electrical power equipment and systems must be fundamentally based on safety both for users of the equipment and for those who operate and maintain it. Opening of circuit breakers on capacitors may produce overvoltages resulting in restrike. The restrike is caused by the voltage across the opening contacts to exceed the breakdown voltage of the gap. The resulting transient can reach three times the peak voltage. The temporary overvoltage (TOV) rating should be greater than or equal to the maximum line-to-ground voltage during a single-line to ground fault (SLGF).
