Carlo Ciulla
Carlo Ciulla
holds the Laurea in Management Engineering (University of Palermo, Italy), the MS in Information Systems and the PhD in Computer and Information Science (NJIT, USA). Researcher at NIBH, Japan (1995-1997), he worked with Magnetoecephalography (MEG) studying the spontaneous alpha rhythm of the human brain. In the year 2000, he joined NJIT where he served as research and teaching assistant. Between the years 2002-2007 he was research associate at Yale University, postdoctoral fellow at the University of Iowa and Wayne State University. He worked on several aspects of signal processing in Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI), functional MR Imaging (fMRI), Perfusion Weighted Imaging (PWI), and Phase Imaging. In 2007 joined Lane College (USA) as Assistant Professor of Computer Science. His research interests relate to mathematical computational engineering: Artificial Neural Networks, Image Registration in fMRI, Signal-Image Interpolation, MEG alpha rhythm. He has authored and co-authored 15 among journal papers and conference proceedings. Also, Carlo Ciulla is the author of the book: “AUTOALIGN: Methodology and Technology for the Alignment of Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging Time Series. Image Registration: The case of Functional MRI.”

Magnetic Resonance Imaging and the Signal-Image Processing Techniques Developed Under the Umbrella of the Unifying Theory
Carlo Ciulla. © 2009. 21 pages.
The forthcoming text of this chapter is intended to raise the debate about the content of the book. To fulfill this purpose, is presented in first instance a section that...
The Intuition
Carlo Ciulla. © 2009. 8 pages.
This chapter reports on the initial idea which gave birth to the investigation which subsequently became the unifying theory. The intuition herein illustrated consists of the...
The Conception of the Intensity-Curvature Functional
Carlo Ciulla. © 2009. 9 pages.
