AN EXPERIMENTAL INVESTIGATION OF LIPOVACCINES

E. R. WHITMORE, E. A. FENNEL, W. F. PETERSEN
1918 Journal of the American Medical Association  
Zeuner used soap solu¬ tions in making a tuberculin, but here again the object was the complete solution of the tubercle bacillus, not an alteration of the rate of absorption.  ...  The possibility of giving the entire immunizing dose at one time is, for military purposes, an advantage in relieving the medical service from a not inconsiderable routine of injections and record work  ...  Blood is now distributed in the same manner and in the same amount as the glucose solution. This preparation of medium takes only a few minutes.  ...

Hybrid GRASP Heuristics [chapter]

GRASP: basic components and enhancements

P. Festa, M. G. C. Resende
2010 Telecommunications Systems

Inference of Upcoming Human Grasp Using EMG During Reach-to-Grasp Movement [article]

Mo Han, Mehrshad Zandigohar, Sezen Yagmur Gunay, Gunar Schirner, Deniz Erdogmus
2022 arXiv   pre-print
A major challenge of the real-time detection of human grasp intent is the identification of dynamic EMG from hand movements.  ...  All experiments were evaluated in a real-time style with the performance transitions over time presented.  ...  The time point when the probability curves of grasp gesture and rest gesture intersect was t i = −729ms, and the distance from the probability peak of grasp gesture to the top competitor probability was  ...

An Experimental Investigation of Insight in Common Ravens (Corvus corax)

Bernd Heinrich

the bill while simultaneously applying pressure with the foot onto it, then reaching down again to repeat the cycle six to eight times in that precise order before finally securing a piece of dried meat  ...  Because one cannot examine directly the subjective experience of an animal, demonstrating insight is highly problematical.  ...  The seemingly obvious solution of examining one bird at a time was not used because isolated birds were even more hesitant to approach strings than birds in groups.)  ...

Inference of Upcoming Human Grasp Using EMG During Reach-to-Grasp Movement

Mo Han, Mehrshad Zandigohar, Sezen Yağmur Günay, Gunar Schirner, Deniz Erdoğmuş
2022 Frontiers in Neuroscience  
A major challenge to the real-time detection of human grasp intent is the identification of dynamic EMG from hand movements.  ...  All experiments were evaluated in a real-time style with the performance transitions presented over time.  ...  In those figures, we show the predicted probabilities and the classification accuracy on the validation set, where each time point represents an EMG time window.  ...
