Identifying User Interaction Patterns in E-Textbooks.
Fri, 27 Nov 2015 13:58:40 +0100 | The Scientific World Journal
We report results from an evaluation in a university setting with 99 students. The interaction sequences of the users were captured during the user study. We found several clusters of user interaction types in our data. Three separate user types were identified based on the interaction sequences: passive user, term clicker, and concept map user. We also discovered that with the concept map interface users started to interact with the application significantly sooner than with the index interface. Overall, our findings suggest that analysis of interaction patterns allows deeper insights into the use of e-textbooks than is afforded by summative evaluation.

Biologically inspired perception for robotics in hostile environments
Fri, 27 Nov 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures
Publication date: Available online 25 November 2015 Source:Biologically Inspired Cognitive Architectures Author(s): Sherine Antoun Navigation and localization in extreme or hostile environments such as deep ocean, disaster scenes and underground environments where darkness, pollution, and dust render cameras, laser scanners, and other sensors ineffective is a task that is challenging to robotics. Nature, however, equipped cave-dwelling creatures with echo acoustic perception that allowed them to thrive in such environments. Visually impaired people have been successful in using ultrasonic (echo acoustic) mobility aids for day-to-day safe navigation. This work demonstrates a technique for deriving reflector-bearing and range data from backscattered ultrasonic echoes and an improved techn...

Viruses, Vol. 7, Pages 6152-6162: Inhibition Profiling of Retroviral Protease Inhibitors Using an HIV-2 Modular System
Fri, 27 Nov 2015 00:00:00 +0100 | Viruses
Retroviral protease inhibitors (PIs) are fundamental pillars in the treatment of HIV infection and acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). Currently used PIs are designed against HIV-1, and their effect on HIV-2 is understudied. Using a modular HIV-2 protease cassette system, inhibition profiling assays were carried out for protease inhibitors both in enzymatic and cell culture assays. Moreover, the treatment-associated resistance mutations (I54M, L90M) were introduced into the modular system, and comparative inhibition assays were performed to determine their effect on the susceptibility of the protease. Our results indicate that darunavir, saquinavir, indinavir and lopinavir were very effective HIV-2 protease inhibitors, while tipranavir, nelfinavir and amprenavir showed a decreased e...

Neurobehavioral Manifestations of Human Immunodeficiency Virus/AIDS
Thu, 26 Nov 2015 06:15:41 +0100 | Neurologic Clinics
Behavioral disorders are common in persons infected with human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). The differential includes preexisting psychiatric diseases, substance abuse, direct effects of HIV infection, opportunistic infection, and the adverse effects of medical therapies. Many patients have more than one contributing or comorbid problem to explain these behavioral changes. The differential should always include consideration of psychosocial, genetic, and medical causes of disease. Treatment strategies must take into account the coadministration of antiretroviral therapy and the specific neurologic problems common in patients infected with HIV. (Source: Neurologic Clinics)
