The aim of the this study is to present some performance tests of a novel 256-channel electroencephalographic data-acquisition system. The common mode rejection ratio of the system was measured as 102 dB for signals in the electroencephalography frequency range and 154 dB for de signals. System electrical noise (referred-to-input) is 1.76 mu V (rms) (0.21 mu V/root Hz for 70-Hz bandwidth). The cross-talk rejection was found to be at 58 dB. The dynamic range of the system was found 108 dB. The performance tests and recorded experimental EEG data show that the developed system can be used in conducting source localization experiments.

Convergence Error and Higher-Order Sensitivity Estimations
Eyi, Sinan (2012-10-01)
The aim of this study is to improve the accuracy of the finite-difference sensitivities of differential equations solved by iterative methods. New methods are proposed to estimate the convergence error and higher-order sensitivities. The convergence error estimation method is based on the eigenvalue analysis of linear systems, but it can also be used for nonlinear systems. The higher-order sensitivities are calculated by differentiating the approximately constructed differential equation with respect to the...
End User Evaluation of the FAIR4Health Data Curation Tool

The aim of this study is to build an evaluation framework for the user-centric testing of the Data Curation Tool. The tool was developed in the scope of the FAIR4Health project to make health data FAIR by transforming them from legacy formats into a Common Data Model based on HL7 FHIR. The end user evaluation framework was built by following a methodology inspired from the Delphi method. We applied a series of questionnaires to a group of experts not only in different roles and skills, but also from various...
Machine Learning and Rule-based Approaches to Assertion Classification
Uzuner, Oezlem; Zhang, Xiaoran; Sibanda, Tawanda (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2009-01-01)
Objectives: The authors study two approaches to assertion classification. One of these approaches, Extended NegEx (ENegEx), extends the rule-based NegEx algorithm to cover alter-association assertions; the other, Statistical Assertion Classifier (StAC), presents a machine learning solution to assertion classification.
Performance prediction of implicitly defined estimators of non-random parameters
Mehmetcik, Erdal; Candan, Çağatay; Orguner, Umut; Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (2023-1-11)
This thesis study is concerned with performance prediction for estimators with non-random parameters. A rather general class of estimators, called implicitly defined estimators (IDEs), is of main interest. An implicitly defined estimator declares the minimizer/maximizer of a selected cost/reward function as the parameter estimate. The maximum likelihood (ML) and the least squares estimators are among the well-known examples of this class. An exact MSE expression for implicitly defined estimators with a symm...
Validating aspects of a reading test
Akşit, Zeynep; Hatipoğlu, Çiler; Department of English Language Education (2018)
This study investigated three aspects of validity (i.e., context, cognitive and scoring) of a reading test: First, the reading test construct was defined based on the cognitive processing model and its criterial features were presented in the test specifications. Secondly, to establish cognitive validity, the cognitive processes that were activated during test taking were investigated through retrospective and introspective verbal data. The results revealed whether the test elicited behavior reflective of r...
