The adult brain continues to grow with the challenges that it faces; its changes are linked to the development of personality and behavior. But what is the link between individual experience and brain structure? Why do identical twins not resemble each other perfectly even when they grew up together? Find some answers in our study ...

Published in PLOS ONE: Interest in the effects of sleeping behavior on health and performance is continuously increasing–both in research and with the general public. Ecologically valid investigations of this research topic necessitate the measurement of sleep within people’s natural living contexts. We present evidence that a new approach for ambulatory accelerometry data offers ...

Permutation Distribution Clustering is a complexity-based approach to time series clustering. The package can be downloaded via CRAN by typing in your R shell: install.packages(“pdc”).
My dissertation is finally out there.
Using the BNNlib, a yet unreleased C++ implementation of recurrent neural networks, I trained a Long Short Term Network (LSTM) to classify different frequencies in a time series. BNNlib allows rendering the nodes’ activations across time, which facilitates the inspection of a trained neural network. In this task, the LSTM network is superior to traditional ...
