    A new automatic compression scheme that adapts to any image set is presented in this thesis. The proposed scheme requires no a priori knowledge on the properties of the image set. This scheme is obtained using a unified ...
  • Ali, Husam Deeb Abdullah Deeb (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of Mathematics and Computer Science, c2012Arts and ScienceDepartment of Mathematics and Computer Science, 2012)
    Humans are not often very skilled in asking good questions because of their inconsistent mind in certain situations. Thus, Question Generation (QG) and Question Answering (QA) became the two major challenges for the Natural ...
  • Kennedy, Peter (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Dept. of GeographyArts and ScienceDepartment of Geography, 2014)
    Spectral features within satellite images change so frequently and unpredictably that spectral definitions of land cover are often only accurate for a single image. Consequently, land-cover maps are expensive, because the ...

    This thesis examined the role of exogenous basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2) in stimulating recovery after early cortical injury. Rats with medial prefrontal cortex (MFC), posterior parietal cortex (PPC), or sham ...
  • Monfils, Marie-H.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Department of Psychology and Neuroscience, 2005Arts and ScienceDepartment of Neuroscience, 2005)
    Basic fibroblast growth factor (FGF-2) is a trophic molecule involved in a number of functions within the central nervous system (CNS), including a prominent role in the regulation of CNS responses to injury. Prior studies ...
  • Rowntree, Sharon R.; University of Lethbridge. Faculty of Arts and Science (Lethbridge, Alta. : University of Lethbridge, Faculty of Arts and Science, 1995Arts and ScienceDepartment of Psychology, 1995)
    Basic fibroblast growth factor (bFGF) has been implicated in the brain's trophic response to injury. This thesis examined the effects of endogenous bFGF on brain plasticity and recovery of behavioral function following ...
