Emotion analysis on Turkish tweets

Demirci, Sinem
Automatically detecting emotions in micro-blogs is a new research area which gains importance with the rapid growth of the micro-blogs in the last few years. Mining emotions in micro-blogs has some practical uses which can improve human-computer interaction. As opposed to regular text used in text mining studies, micro-blog entries are short and not well-formed enough to process directly. Also there are some special usages, symbols and conveniences used in micro-blogs which may greatly influence the affect in the text. Therefore, in this thesis, a general framework which considers those deficiencies is suggested and a new data set of Turkish tweets for emotion analysis is constructed.


Stress generation in depression: Three studies on its resilience, possible mechanism, and symptom specificity
Joiner, TE; Wingate, LR; Gençöz, Tülin; Gençöz, Faruk (Guilford Publications, 2005-03-01)
Three longitudinal studies examined several issues related to stress generation in depressive symptoms among undergraduates, with emphasis on mechanisms of stress generation. Study 1 replicated the stress generation effect reported in past research. Study 2 replicated Study 1's findings and, furthermore, supported the symptom specificity of stress generation to depressive versus anxious symptoms, and, perhaps most important, found that increases in hopelessness fully accounted for the stress generation find...
Comparative study on antibody immobilization strategies for efficient circulating tumor cell capture
ATES, Hatice Ceren; OZGUR, Ebru; Külah, Haluk (2018-03-01)
Methods for isolation and quantification of circulating tumor cells (CTCs) are attracting more attention every day, as the data for their unprecedented clinical utility continue to grow. However, the challenge is that CTCs are extremely rare (as low as 1 in a billion of blood cells) and a highly sensitive and specific technology is required to isolate CTCs from blood cells. Methods utilizing microfluidic systems for immunoaffinity-based CTC capture are preferred, especially when purity is the prime requirem...
Computational modeling of cardiac tissue with strongly coupled electromechanics and orthotropic viscoelastic effects
Cansiz, Baris; Dal, Hüsnü; Kaliske, Michael (2014-03-14)
Modeling of complex mechanisms leading to the functioning of the heart has been an active field of research since decades. Difficulties associated with in vivo experiments motivate the utilization of computational models in order to gain a better appreciation of heart electromechanics. Although rate dependent behaviour of the orthotropic passive heart tissue has been comprehensively studied in the literature [1], effects of this phenomenon on fully coupled cardiac electromechanics are unrevealed yet. Theref...
Prevalence of traumatic events and determinants of posttraumatic growth in university students
Arıkan, Gizem; Karancı, Ayşe Nuray; Department of Psychology (2007)
This study aims to examine the prevalence of traumatic events among university students and to evaluate the predictive values of socio-demographic variables, trauma characteristics, attachment styles and coping styles in posttraumatic growth. 321 students from the Middle East Technical University and Hacettepe University participated in the study. A trauma checklist, Posttraumatic Growth Inventory, Relationship Scales Questionnaire, Attachment Style Questionnaire and Ways of Coping Inventory were administer...

In the present study, we investigate the dynamics of shunting inhibitory cellular neural networks (SICNNs) with impulsive effects. We give a mathematical description of the chaos for the multidimensional dynamics of impulsive SICNNs, and prove its existence rigorously by taking advantage of the external inputs. The Li-Yorke definition of chaos is used in our theoretical discussions. In the considered model, the impacts satisfy the cell and shunting principles. This enriches the applications of SICNNs and ma...
