Protein Spot Matching in Two Dimensional Gel Electrophoresis Images based on Probabilistic Models

Sina Shamekhi; Mohammad Hosein Miranbeigi; Ali Gooya

Volume 12, Issue 4 , January 2019, Pages 265-275

  Matching of the protein spots in two dimensional gel electrophoresis (2DGE) images is a main process of analyzing these images. Due to the challenges of 2DGE images such as the presence of noise and artifacts, the matching of protein spots is performed under human supervision. This supervision involves ...  Read More

Detection of Neural Spike in Extracellular Recording using Shannon Energy and Hilbert Transform

Sahar Akbari; Vahid Shalchyan; Mohammad Reza Daliri

Volume 12, Issue 4 , January 2019, Pages 277-286

  Neural spike detection is the first step in the analysis of neural action potentials in extracellular recordings. The background noise which mainly originates from a large number of far neuronal units, usually confront with detection of low-amplitude spikes. So far, many scholars have devoted their works ...  Read More
