Marie-Charlotte Gandolphe, Mohamad El Haj
Flashbulb memories are vivid autobiographical memories of the circumstances where an individual first learns about emotionally significant public events. Our paper assesses whether these memories were triggered by the attacks of Friday 13 November 2015 in Paris. Two hundred and ninety-one participants answered a web-based questionnaire that assessed their memory of the circumstances in which they first learned of the attacks. The questionnaire also assessed vividness, rehearsal, emotion, surprise and novelty...

In this chapter we discuss computational methods for the prediction of microRNA (miRNA) targets. More specifically, we consider machine learning-based approaches and explain why these methods have been relatively unsuccessful in reducing the number of false positive predictions. Further we suggest approaches designed to improve their performance by considering tissue-specific target regulation. We argue that the miRNA targetome differs depending on the tissue type and introduce a novel algorithm that predicts miRNA targets specifically for colorectal cancer...

Xi Wang, Kang Zhao, Nick Street
BACKGROUND: Online health communities (OHCs) have become a major source of social support for people with health problems. Members of OHCs interact online with similar peers to seek, receive, and provide different types of social support, such as informational support, emotional support, and companionship. As active participations in an OHC are beneficial to both the OHC and its users, it is important to understand factors related to users' participations and predict user churn for user retention efforts...

BACKGROUND: Workplaces today demand graduates who are prepared with field-specific knowledge, advanced social skills, problem-solving skills, and integration capabilities. Meeting these goals with didactic learning (DL) is becoming increasingly difficult. Enhanced training methods that would better prepare tomorrow's graduates must be more engaging and game-like, such as feedback based e-learning or simulation-based training, while saving time. Empirical evidence regarding the effectiveness of advanced learning methods is lacking...

Kristen Severson, Brinda Monian, J Christopher Love, Richard D Braatz
Motivation: This work addresses two common issues in building classification models for biological or medical studies: learning a sparse model, where only a subset of a large number of possible predictors is used, and training in the presence of missing data. This work focuses on supervised generative binary classification models, specifically linear discriminant analysis (LDA). The parameters are determined using an expectation maximization algorithm to both address missing data and introduce priors to promote sparsity...

In the recent years, medical and healthcare higher education institutions compile their curricula in different ways in order to cover all necessary topics and sections that the students will need to go through to success in their future clinical practice. A medical and healthcare curriculum consists of many descriptive parameters, which define statements of what, when, and how students will learn in the course of their studies. For the purpose of understanding a complicated medical and healthcare curriculum structure, we have developed a web-oriented platform for curriculum management covering in detail formal metadata specifications in accordance with the approved pedagogical background, namely outcome-based approach...

Combining research data and clinical routine data is a chance for medical research. We present our method for the transformation of paper-based research data into a concept-based representation. With this representation the study data from research projects can be combined with data from clinical tools with less integration effort. We applied and verified our method using data from a current research study. In this paper we also show our main challenges and lessons learned. Clinical assessment data and study diaries from a long term study (n=24, 3 months observation time each, 17 different clinical assessments) stored on paper were used as the data set...

This paper proposes a decision support system for screening pediatric cardiac disease in primary healthcare centres relying on the heart sound time series analysis. The proposed system employs our processing method which is based on the hidden Markov model for extracting appropriate information from the time series. The binary output resulting from the method is discriminative for the two classes of time series existing in our databank, corresponding to the children with heart disease and the healthy ones. A total 90 children referrals to a university hospital, constituting of 55 healthy and 35 children with congenital heart disease, were enrolled into the study after obtaining the informed consent...

BACKGROUND: A gap in childhood cancer outcomes remains between developed and developing countries. Persistence of this gap may be caused by financial, social, or educational disparities. Twinning and distance learning initiatives may improve such disparities. Integrating telemedicine into pediatric oncology twinning programs enhances education and facilitates patient-centered capacity building. MATERIALS AND METHODS: We performed an analysis of Web-based meetings held from August 2005 through July 2009 between the International Outreach Program at St...

Although epidural analgesia is widely used for pain relief, it is associated with a significant failure rate. Loss of resistance technique, tactile feedback from the needle, and surface landmarks are traditionally used to guide the epidural needle tip into the epidural space (EDS). The aim of this narrative review is to critically appraise new and emerging technologies for identification of EDS and their potential role in the future. The PubMed, Cochrane Central Register of Controlled Clinical Studies, and Web of Science databases were searched using predecided search strategies, yielding 1048 results...

Machine learning is a means to derive artificial intelligence by discovering patterns in existing data. Here, we show that applying machine learning to ordinary human language results in human-like semantic biases. We replicated a spectrum of known biases, as measured by the Implicit Association Test, using a widely used, purely statistical machine-learning model trained on a standard corpus of text from the World Wide Web. Our results indicate that text corpora contain recoverable and accurate imprints of our historic biases, whether morally neutral as toward insects or flowers, problematic as toward race or gender, or even simply veridical, reflecting the status quo distribution of gender with respect to careers or first names...

BACKGROUND: Digital maps are instrumental in conveying information about environmental hazards geographically. For laypersons, computer-based maps can serve as tools to promote environmental health literacy about invisible traffic-related air pollution and ultrafine particles. Concentrations of these pollutants are higher near major roadways and increasingly linked to adverse health effects. Interactive computer maps provide visualizations that can allow users to build mental models of the spatial distribution of ultrafine particles in a community and learn about the risk of exposure in a geographic context...

BACKGROUND: Advances in cloning and sequencing technology are yielding a massive number of viral genomes. The classification and annotation of these genomes constitute important assets in the discovery of genomic variability, taxonomic characteristics and disease mechanisms. Existing classification methods are often designed for specific well-studied family of viruses. Thus, the viral comparative genomic studies could benefit from more generic, fast and accurate tools for classifying and typing newly sequenced strains of diverse virus families...
