Cognitive Workload Assessment Based on the Tensorial Treatment of EEG Estimates of Cross-Frequency Phase Interactions.
Abstract The decoding of conscious experience, based on non-invasive measurements, has become feasible by tailoring machine learning techniques to analyse neuroimaging data. Recently, functional connectivity graphs (FCGs) have entered into the picture. In the related decoding scheme, FCGs are treated as unstructured data and, hence, their inherent format is overlooked. To alleviate this, tensor subspace analysis (TSA) is incorporated for the parsimonious representation of connectivity data. In addition to the particular methodological innovation, this work also makes a contribution at a conceptual level by encoding...

The Combination of Electric Current and Copper Promotes Neuronal Differentiation of Adipose-Derived Stem Cells.
In this study, we present a growth factor-free method for the differentiation of hADSCs toward neuron-like cells. We investigated the effect of electric current and copper on neuronal differentiation. We analyzed the morphological changes, the mRNA and protein expression levels in the stimulated cells and showed that the combination of current and copper induces stem cell differentiation toward the neuronal lineage with elongation of the cells and the upregulation of neuron-specific genes and proteins. The induction of the neuronal differentiation of hADSCs by electric field and copper may offer a novel approach for stem c...

Design of a microscopic electrical impedance tomography system for 3D continuous non-destructive monitoring of tissue culture
Conclusion: The experimental results showed that the new micro-EIT system with a reduced set of injection currentpatterns and a large number of voltage sensing electrodes can be potentially used for tissue culturemonitoring. Numerical simulations demonstrated that the spatial resolution could be improved to thescale required for tissue culture monitoring. Future challenges include manufacturing a bioreactorcompatiblecontainer with a dense array of electrodes and a larger number of measurement channelsthat are sensitive to the reduced voltage gradients expected at a smaller scale.

Computational modelling of the hybrid procedure in hypoplastic left heart syndrome: A comparison of zero-dimensional and three-dimensional approach
Previous studies have employed generic 3D-multiscale models to predict haemodynamic effects of the hybrid procedure in hypoplastic left heart syndrome. Patient-specific models, derived from image data, may allow a more clinically relevant model. However, such models require long computation times and employ internal pulmonary artery band [dint] dimension, which limits clinical application. Simpler, zero-dimensional models utilize external PAB diameters [dext] and provide rapid analysis, which may better guide intervention. (Source: Medical Engineering and Physics)

Computing Muscle, Ligament, and Osseous Contributions to the Elbow Varus Moment During Baseball Pitching.
Abstract Baseball pitching imposes a dangerous valgus load on the elbow that puts the joint at severe risk for injury. The goal of this study was to develop a musculoskeletal modeling approach to enable evaluation of muscle-tendon contributions to mitigating elbow injury risk in pitching. We implemented a forward dynamic simulation framework that used a scaled biomechanical model to reproduce a pitching motion recorded from a high school pitcher. The medial elbow muscles generated substantial, protective, varus elbow moments in our simulations. For our subject, the triceps generated large varus moments at the time ...

Extrinsic and Intrinsic Index Finger Muscle Attachments in an OpenSim Upper-Extremity Model.
Abstract Musculoskeletal models allow estimation of muscle function during complex tasks. We used objective methods to determine possible attachment locations for index finger muscles in an OpenSim upper-extremity model. Data-driven optimization algorithms, Simulated Annealing and Hook-Jeeves, estimated tendon locations crossing the metacarpophalangeal (MCP), proximal interphalangeal (PIP) and distal interphalangeal (DIP) joints by minimizing the difference between model-estimated and experimentally-measured moment arms. Sensitivity analysis revealed that multiple sets of muscle attachments with similar optimized m...

Mechanical Stimulation of Bone Marrow In Situ Induces Bone Formation in Trabecular Explants.
This study investigates the influence of LMHF loading, applied using a custom designed bioreactor, on bone adaptation in an explanted trabecular bone model, which isolated the bone and marrow. Bone adaptation was investigated by performing micro CT scans pre and post experimental LMHF loading, using image registration techniques. Computational fluids dynamic models were generated using the pre-experiment scans to characterise the mechanical stimuli imposed by the loading regime prior to adaptation. Results here demonstrate a significant increase in bone formation in the LMHF loaded group compared to static controls and med...

Feature dimensionality reduction for myoelectric pattern recognition: A comparison study of feature selection and feature projection methods
Robotic devices are considered as the leading interactive rehabilitation systems available. Robotic rehabilitation is an effective platform for sensorimotor training in people with different neurological injuries such as hemiparetic stroke, cerebral palsy, multiple sclerosis, Parkinson's disease or spinal cord injury [1–7]. In contrast, advances have been made to build lighter, stronger and more versatile upper-limb powered robotic devices [8–13], relatively little progress has been made on improving the intuitive control of robotic exoskeletons.

Analysis and Control of Beliefs in Social Networks
In this paper, we investigate the problem of how beliefs diffuse among members of social networks. We propose an information flow model (IFM) of belief that captures how interactions among members affect the diffusion and eventual convergence of a belief. The IFM model includes a generalized Markov Graph (GMG) model as a social network model, which reveals that the diffusion of beliefs depends heavily on two characteristics of the social network characteristics, namely degree centralities and clustering coefficients. We apply the IFM to both converged belief estimation and belief control strategy optimization. The model is...

Reliability-Based Splitting Algorithms for Time-Constrained Distributed Detection in Random-Access WSNs
We consider distributed detection applications for a wireless sensor network (WSN) that has a limited time to collect and process local decisions to produce a global decision. When this time is not sufficient to collect decisions from all nodes in the network, a strategy is needed for collecting those with the highest reliability. This can be accomplished by incorporating a reliability-based splitting algorithm into the random access protocol of the WSN: the collection time is divided into frames and only nodes with a specified range of reliabilities compete for the channel using slotted ALOHA within each frame—node...

Rapid pressure-to-flow dynamics of cerebral autoregulation induced by instantaneous changes of arterial CO
Continuous assessment of CA is desirable in a number of clinical conditions, where cerebral hemodynamics may change within relatively short periods. In this work, we propose a novel method that can improve temporal resolution when assessing the pressure-to-flow dynamics in the presence of rapid changes in arterial CO2. A time-varying multivariate model is proposed to adaptively suppress the instantaneous effect of CO2 on CBFV by the recursive least square (RLS) method. Autoregulation is then quantified from the phase difference (PD) between arterial blood pressure (ABP) and CBFV by calculating the instantaneous PD between ...

Development of an Integrated Surface Stimulation Device for Systematic Evaluation of Wound Electrotherapy.
Abstract Ideally, all chronic wounds would be prevented as they can become life threatening complications. The concept that a wound produces a 'current of injury' due to the discontinuity in the electrical field of intact skin provides the basis for the concept that electrical stimulation (ES) may provide an effective treatment for chronic wounds. The optimal stimulation waveform parameters are unknown, limiting the reliability of achieving a successful clinical therapeutic outcome. In order to gain a more thorough understanding of ES for chronic wound therapy, systematic evaluation using a valid in vivo model is r...

Feasibility and Analysis of Bipolar Concentric Recording of Electrohysterogram with Flexible Active Electrode.
Abstract The conduction velocity and propagation patterns of the electrohysterogram (EHG) provide fundamental information on the electrophysiological condition of the uterus. However, the accuracy of these measurements can be impaired by both the poor spatial selectivity and sensitivity to the relative direction of the contraction propagation associated with conventional disc electrodes. Concentric ring electrodes could overcome these limitations. The aim of this study was to examine the feasibility of picking up surface EHG signals using a new flexible tripolar concentric ring electrode (TCRE), and to compare thes...

A simple method for decomposition of peracetic acid in a microalgal cultivation system.
Abstract A cost-efficient process devoid of several washing steps was developed, which is related to direct cultivation following the decomposition of the sterilizer. Peracetic acid (PAA) is known to be an efficient antimicrobial agent due to its high oxidizing potential. Sterilization by 2 mM PAA demands at least 1 h incubation time for an effective disinfection. Direct degradation of PAA was demonstrated by utilizing components in conventional algal medium. Consequently, ferric ion and pH buffer (HEPES) showed a synergetic effect for the decomposition of PAA within 6 h. On the contrary, NaNO3, one of the main ...

Pulse Timing During Irreversible Electroporation Achieves Enhanced Destruction in a Hindlimb Model of Cancer.
Abstract The use of irreversible electroporation (IRE) for cancer treatment has increased during the past decade due to many advantages over other focal therapies. However, despite early success in pre-clinical and clinical IRE trials, in vivo studies have shown that IRE suffers from an inability to destroy large volumes of cancer tissue without repeating treatment and/or increasing the applied electrical dose to dangerous levels. The present work demonstrates a simple method whereby treatment volumes can be enhanced by changing pulse timing (delivering pulsing in three trains, 30 s apart), without changing the el...

biomechanical evaluation of stress shielding and initial stability of a low-modulus hip stem made of β type Ti-33.6Nb-4Sn alloy
Total hip arthroplasty (THA) is one of the most beneficial procedures in orthopedic surgery [1]. However, subsequent femoral bone remodeling affects long-term clinical performance. Progressive proximal bone loss can decrease implant stability, causing subsidence and aseptic loosening, resulting in periprosthetic fracture and hindrance to revision surgery [2–5]. The etiology of proximal bone resorption is multifactorial [6], but it is mainly caused by a reduction in load transmitted from implant to bone, i.e., so-called “stress shielding” [7,8].
