(2011-05-25)The latent class model (LCM) is a statistical method that introduces a set of latent categorical variables. The main advantage of LCM is that conditional on latent variables, the manifest variables are mutually independent ...
Determination of effects of physical activity and adiposity on human thigh composition using magnetic resonance techniques (2011-01-14)This thesis project developed a magnetic resonance imaging and spectroscopy (MRI/MRS) protocol to quickly and non-invasively assess the fat composition of the thigh in three groups of older women varying in adiposity and ...
(2011-05-25)We propose a cost-effective algorithm for the dynamic image reconstruction problem in magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). The proposed imaging method, the ensemble Kalman filter, is a Monte Carlo approximation to the Kalman ...
(2013-02-03)This dissertation investigates the influence of physical activity on the cognitive and brain health of children. It is motivated by experimental studies in rodents and older adults that demonstrate a positive influence ...
(2012-02-06)Microvasculature consists of arterioles, capillaries and venules, in which the blood flow velocity is slow (≤ 2 cm/s). The hemodynamic signals, blood oxygenation-level dependent response, cerebral blood flow, cerebral blood ...
