We decided to edit this book because we found another way to approach this
problem, covering novel aspects of epilepsy without ignoring its foundation and
therefore, apart from the classic issues that cannot be missing in any book about
epilepsy, we introduced novel aspects related with epilepsy and neurocysticercosis as
a leading cause of epilepsy in developing countries.
This book includes selected peer-reviewed chapters which cover novel aspects of cysticercosis and neurocysticercosis written by well known international researchers, representing the most relevant Working Group for Cysticercosis of Mexico, Peru, Ecuador, most of the Eastern and Southern Africa countries and Europe plus other contributions from Canada and United States of America.
In this paper we present some novel applications of Explanation-Based Learning (EBL) technique to parsing Lexicalized Tree-Adjoining grammars. The novel aspects are (a) immediate generalization of parses in the training set, (b) generalization over recursive structures and (c) representation of generalized parses as Finite State Transducers. A highly impoverished parser called a "stapler" has also been introduced. We present experimental results using EBL for different corpora and architectures to show the effectiveness of our approach. ...
The previous editions of this book have never looked very much like their predecessors, and this
fourth edition is no exception. Due to the accumulation of new findings during the seven years
that has passed since the previous update, practically all chapters are either completely rewritten
or are totally new. We (the editors) and the contributors have strived to reach a proper balance
between the well-established “eternal truths” and the novel and even controversial findings.

A dramatic increase in knowledge regarding the molecular biology of brain tumors has been established over the past few years, and this has lead to the development of novel therapeutic strategies for these patients. In this book a review of the options available for the clinical management of patients with these tumors are outlined. In addition advances in radiology both for pre-operative diagnostic purposes along with surgical planning are described.
This book attempts to integrate the progress in the physiological aspects of
blood pressure regulation mechanisms related to the kidney. With this in mind,
we tried to collect a series of original contributions from leading experts in the
field. The continuous evolution of techniques and biomedical aspects has overall
led to significant progress; however, in recent years, major concerns have
been expressed about gene target research. Therefore, molecules of different
origin and nature are investigated from various aspects and a number of particles
are hardly integrated....
The registry of the new city was then contacted until the
individual was located. Changes of residence were recorded in a database with the exact
date of moving. In the case of death, date and city of death were provided by the local
Cause of death was either ascertained through a record linkage system of the NRW regional
statistical office or through the local health offices. The record linkage system has been
described in detail by Klug and colleagues (2003). Local health offices provided an
anonymous copy of the relevant death certificate.
Mining retrospective events from text streams has been an important research topic. Classic text representation model (i.e., vector space model) cannot model temporal aspects of documents. To address it, we proposed a novel burst-based text representation model, denoted as BurstVSM. BurstVSM corresponds dimensions to bursty features instead of terms, which can capture semantic and temporal information.
In this paper, we propose a novel approach to automatic generation of summary templates from given collections of summary articles. This kind of summary templates can be useful in various applications. We ﬁrst develop an entity-aspect LDA model to simultaneously cluster both sentences and words into aspects. We then apply frequent subtree pattern mining on the dependency parse trees of the clustered and labeled sentences to discover sentence patterns that well represent the aspects.
Several crystal andNMRstructures of calmodulin (CaM)in
complex with fragments derived from CaM-regulated pro-teins have been reported recently and reveal novel ways for
CaMto interact with its targets. This review will discuss and
compare features of the interaction between CaM and its
target domains derived from the plasma membrane
-pump, the Ca
-channel, the Ca
CaM-dependent kinase kinase and the anthrax exotoxin.
This contribution book is a collection of reviews and original articles from eminent experts working in the multi- and interdisciplinary arena of biomaterials, ranging from their design to novel uses. From their personal experience, the readers can obtain a stimulating foresight on the potentialities of different synthetic and engineered biomaterials. 21 chapters have been organized to illustrate different aspects of biomaterials science.
This is the first volume of Advances in Nanoporous Materials, a new book
series devoted to the science and application of all kinds of nanoporous
solids. Its intention is to publish comprehensive reviews of lasting value in
the field of nanoporous materials written by renowned experts. Its scope
covers all aspects of nanoporous solids, including their preparation and
structure, their post-synthetic modification, methods for their characterization
as well as their application in catalysis and adsorption/separation....
For writers of technical books, there can be no better piece of
Around the time of writing the first edition – about a
decade ago – there were very few monographs on this subject:
today, there are possibly no less than 20.
Based on critical inputs, this edition stands thoroughly
revamped. New chapters on ventilator waveforms, airway
humidification, and aerosol therapy in the ICU now find a
place. Novel software-based modes of ventilation have been
included. Ventilator-associated pneumonia has been separated
into a new chapter.
Women’s health is a priority population for AHRQ,
meaning women have unique health care needs or
issues that require special focus. The Agency for
Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)
supports research on all aspects of health care
provided to women, including: enhancing the
response of the health system to women’s needs;
understanding differences between the health care
needs of women and men; understanding and
eliminating disparities in health care; and
providing evidence to inform women in their
health care decisions.
Prostate cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in men and its treatment was constricted to surgery for confined state and androgen ablation for advanced disease until new options have become available. The present book covers a broad range of novel aspects of prostate cancer diagnosis, treatment and patient care, as well as new research on relevant cell biology.
Since the discovery of carbon nanotubes about a decade and a half ago by Sumio Iijima, the scientiﬁc community involved in various aspects of research related to carbon nanotubes and related technologies has observed a steady progress of the science, as is typical for any new and novel material.
For all its unique and novel aspects, social media is simply another method by which individuals and
entities interact and communicate. In the insurance context, these individuals and entities include
insurance companies, their employees, appointed producers, consumers, potential consumers and
regulators. Thus, this document is intended to both educate these various groups and provide guidance
to regulators, insurance companies and producers for addressing various social media concerns.
But another crucial aspect of the New Hollywood, and one that may
help maintain the formal-aesthetic integrity of its movies, is the parallel
development of independent films and filmmaking. Throughout the
1980s and 1990s, the studios’ blockbuster mentality has been offset
by an unprecedented “indie boom.” Consequently, the film industry
has been increasingly split between big-budget, franchise-spawning,
global-marketed blockbusters and low-budget “specialty films”
designed for carefully targeted niche markets.
Although this book is far from being exhaustive, it conveys some of the novel ideas
and directions in the membrane trafficking field through a combination of review,
research, and technical articles. The book is organized in a series of chapters that will
“transport” the reader from the endoplasmic reticulum, where proteins and lipids are
synthesized, to the plasma membrane, where molecules are either delivered or
internalized via endocytosis.
