Skin lesion pigmentation area from surface, or, epi-illumination (ELM) images and blood volume area from transillumination (TLM) images are useful features to aid a dermatologist in the diagnosis of melanoma and other skin cancers in early curable stages. However, segmentation of these areas is difficult. In this work, we present an automatic segmentation tool for ELM and TLM images that ...

  • Schemas for Prey-Catching in Frog and Toad

    This paper first outlines the methodology of schema theory (Arbib 1981), which integrates perception and action by decomposing an overall behavior into the interaction of functional, neurally explicable, units called schemas. It offers comparisons with other methodologies from Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Brain Theory (BT), and reviews the RS (Robot Schema) language and the Arbib and House (1987) model of detour behavior in Rana computatrix which associates potential fields with objects -- an attractant for the prey; arepulsor for the fencepost; and a forward field for the toad itself which are then combined to create more complex fields which determine the trajectory of the animal. However, rather than analyze detour behavior here, the remainder of the paper presents a schema-theoretic model for the decision-making mechanisms which control preY: catching behavior in frog and toad; the extension of the work to model predator-avoidance is discussed elsewhere. It thus contributes to Rana computatrix, an evolving set of models of anuran visuomotor coordination (e.g., Arbib 1987). Our new model of prey-catching is rooted in recent experimental data on the behavior of animals with and without brain lesions. These data motivate the model's use of independent processing of the different parameters that define the stimulus position (horizontal eccentricity, elevation and distance). The model, which emphasizes action generated by the concurrent activity of multiple motor schemas rather than the serial activity of such schemas, predict new behaviors for experimental test.

  • Applications in Proctology and Obstetrics

    This chapter focuses on the anal sphincter, puborectalis (PR) muscle and fecal incontinence resulting from their iatrogenic lesions. The PR and the anal sphincter muscles provide fecal continence. The PR is shaped like a sling with both sides attached to the pubic bone. The anal sphincter comprises an internal involuntary smooth muscle layer (IAS) and an external voluntary striated muscle layer (EAS). The innervation of the EAS may be affected by the mode of child delivery. The chapter deals with minimally invasive electromyography (EMG) detection systems based on intra-anal probes. An important difference between the EAS and the skeletal muscles concerns the concept of interelectrode distance and muscle fiber conduction velocity. Recent data suggest that either natural or iatrogenic asymmetry of innervation of the EAS may contribute to the occurrence and severity of incontinence symptoms resulting from aging or pelvic floor trauma, in particular after child delivery.

    Fundus images of the retina are color images of the eye taken by specially designed digital cameras. Ophthalmologists rely on fundus images to diagnose various diseases that affect the eye, such as diabetic retinopathy and retinopathy of prematurity. A crucial preliminary step in the analysis of retinal images is the identification and localization of important anatomical structures, such as the optic nerve head (ONH), the macula, and the major vascular arcades. Identification of the ONH is an important initial step in the detection and analysis of the anatomical structures and pathological features in the retina. Different types of retinal pathology may be detected and analyzed via the application of appropriately designed techniques of digital image processing and pattern recognition. Computer-aided analysis of retinal images has the potential to facilitate quantitative and objective analysis of retinal lesions and abnormalities. Accurate identification and localization of retinal f atures and lesions could contribute to improved diagnosis, treatment, and management of retinopathy. This book presents an introduction to diagnostic imaging of the retina and an overview of image processing techniques for ophthalmology. In particular, digital image processing algorithms and pattern analysis techniques for the detection of the ONH are described. In fundus images, the ONH usually appears as a bright region, white or yellow in color, and is indicated as the convergent area of the network of blood vessels. Use of the geometrical and intensity characteristics of the ONH, as well as the property that the ONH represents the location of entrance of the blood vessels and the optic nerve into the retina, is demonstrated in developing the methods. The image processing techniques described in the book include morphological filters for preprocessing fundus images, filters for edge detection, the Hough transform for the detection of lines and circles, Gabor filters to detect the b ood vessels, and phase portrait analysis for the detection of convergent or node- like patterns. Illustrations of application of the methods to fundus images from two publicly available databases are presented, in terms of locating the center and the boundary of the ONH. Methods for quantitative evaluation of the results of detection of the ONH using measures of overlap and free-response receiver operating characteristics are also described.

  • Localization of Function in Neurocontrollers

    This paper presents the Functional Contribution Algorithm (FCA) that addresses the fundamental challenge of localizing functions in artificial and natural neural networks. The FCA is based on an assignment of contribution values to the elements of the network, such that the ability to predict the network's performance in response to multi-lesions is maximized. The algorithm is thoroughly examined on evolved neurocontrollers, which are simple enough, but not too simple. We demonstrate that the FCA portrays a stable set of contributions and accurate multi-lesion predictions, which are significantly better than those obtained based on the classical single-lesion approach. Our results demonstrate the potential of the FCA to provide insights into the organization of both animat and animate nervous systems
