    • Most Complex Non-returning Regular Languages 

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Davies, Sylvie (Springer, 2017-07-03)
      A regular language L is non-returning if in the minimal deterministic finite automaton accepting it there are no transitions into the initial state. Eom, Han and Jirásková derived upper bounds on the state complexity of ...

      Liu, Bo Yang Victor; Davies, Sylvie; Brzozowski, Janusz (Discrete Mathematics and Theoretical Computer Science, 2016-10-17)
      A right ideal (left ideal, two-sided ideal) is a non-empty language $L$ over an alphabet $\Sigma$ such that $L=L\Sigma^*$ ($L=\Sigma^*L$, $L=\Sigma^*L\Sigma^*$). Let $k=3$ for right ideals, 4 for left ideals and 5 for ...
    • Most Complex Regular Right-Ideal Languages 

      Brzozowski, Janusz; Davies, Gareth (Springer, 2014)
      A right ideal is a language L over an alphabet Sigma that satisfies the equation L = L Sigma*. We show that there exists a sequence (Rn vertical bar n >= 3) of regular right-ideal languages, where R-n has n left quotients ...
    • Mother-Child Communication: The Influence of ADHD Symptomatology and Executive Functioning on Paralinguistic Style 

      Nilsen, Elizabeth S.; Rints, Ami; Ethier, Nicole; Moroz, Sarah (Frontiers, 2016-08-10)
      Paralinguistic style, involving features of speech such as pitch and volume, is an important aspect of one’s communicative competence. However, little is known about the behavioral traits and cognitive skills that relate ...
    • Motivational Affordance and Risk-Taking Across Decision Domains 

      Zou, Xi; Scholer, Abigail A. (SAGE Publications, 2016-03-01)
      We propose a motivational affordance account to explain both stability and variability in risk-taking propensity in major decision domains. We draw on regulatory focus theory to differentiate two types of motivation ...
    • Motivational Versus Metabolic Effects of Carbohydrates on Self-Control

      Self-control is critical for achievement and well-being. However, people’s capacity for self-control is limited and becomes depleted through use. One prominent explanation for this depletion posits that self-control consumes ...

      Targeted muscle reinnervation (TMR) is a surgical procedure used to redirect nerves originally controlling muscles of the amputated limb into remaining muscles above the amputation, to treat phantom limb pain and facilitate ...
    • Movement-related cortical potentials in paraplegic patients: abnormal patterns and considerations for BCI-rehabilitation 

      Jiang, Ning; Xu, Ren; Vuckovic, Aleksandra; Hasan, Muhammad; Mrachacz-Kersting, Natalie; Allan, David; Fraser, Matthew; Nasseroleslami, Bahman; Conway, Bernie; Dremstrup, Kim; Farina, Dario (Frontiers, 2014-08-27)
      Non-invasive EEG-based Brain-Computer Interfaces (BCI) can be promising for the motor neuro-rehabilitation of paraplegic patients. However, this shall require detailed knowledge of the abnormalities in the EEG signatures ...
    • MRI guided brain stimulation without the use of a neuro-navigation system. 

      Vaghefi, Ehsan; Cai, Peng; Fang, Fang; Byblow, Winston D.; Stinear, Cathy M.; Thompson, Benjamin (Hindawi Publishing, 2015-01-01)
      A key issue in the field of noninvasive brain stimulation (NIBS) is the accurate localization of scalp positions that correspond to targeted cortical areas. The current gold standard is to combine structural and functional ...
    • mSLA-based 3D printing of acrylated epoxidized soybean oil - nano-hydroxyapatite composites for bone repair 

      Mondal, Dibakar; Haghpanah, Zahra; Huxman, Connor J.; Tanter, Sophie; Sun, Duo; Gorbet, Maud; Willett, Thomas L. (Elsevier, 2021-11)
      Structural bone allografts are used to treat critically sized segmental bone defects (CSBDs) as such defects are too large to heal naturally. Development of biomaterials with competent mechanical properties that can also ...
    • A Multi-class BCI based on Somatosensory Imagery 

      Yao, Lin; Mrachacz-Kersting, Natalie; Sheng, Xinjun; Zhu, Xiangyang; Farina, Dario; Jiang, Ning (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2018-06-18)
      In this study, we investigated the performance of a multi-class brain-computer interface (BCI). The BCI system is based on the concept of somatosensory attentional orientation (SAO), in which the user shifts and maintains ...
    • A multi-class tactile brain-computer interface based on stimulus-induced oscillatory dynamics 

      Yao, Lin; Chen, Mei Lin; Sheng, Xinjun; Mrachacz-Kersting, Natalie; Zhu, Xiangyang; Farina, Dario; Jiang, Ning (Elsevier, 2017-07-24)
      We proposed a multi-class tactile brain-computer interface that utilizes stimulus-induced oscillatory dynamics. It was hypothesized that somatosensory attention can modulate tactile induced oscillation changes, which can ...
    • Multi-indicator supply chain management framework for food convergent innovation in the dairy business
