A comprehensive survey of brain interface technology designs.

Mason,SG; Bashashati,A; Fatourechi,M; Navarro,KF; Birch,GE Abstract In this work we present the first comprehensive survey of Brain Interface(BI) technology designs published prior to January 2006. Detailed results from this survey, whichwas based on the Brain Interface Design Framework proposed by… Read moreA comprehensive survey of brain interface technology designs.

Three-dimensional simulations of reactive gas uptake in single airwaybifurcations.

Taylor,AB; Borhan,A; Ultman,JS Abstract The pattern of lung injury induced by the inhalation of ozone (O(3)) dependson the dose delivered to different tissues in the airways. This study examined the distribution ofO(3) uptake in a single, symmetrically branched airway bifurcation….

The relative contributions of compression and hypoxia to development ofmuscle tissue damage: an in vitro study

Gawlitta,D; Li,W; Oomens,CW; Baaijens,FP; Bader,DL; Bouten,CV Abstract Deep pressure ulcers develop in tissues subjected to sustained mechanicalloading. Though it has been hypothesized that this damage mechanism results from local tissueischemia, it has recently been shown with a cell model that… Read moreThe relative contributions of compression and hypoxia to development ofmuscle tissue damage: an in vitro study

Use of X-ray tomography to map crystalline and amorphous phases in frozenbiomaterials.

Bischof,JC; Mahr,B; Choi,JH; Behling,M; Mewes,D Abstract The outcome of both cryopreservation and cryosurgical freezing applicationsis influenced by the concentration and type of the cryoprotective agent (CPA) or the cryodestructiveagent (i.e., the chemical adjuvants referred to here as CDA) added prior… Read moreUse of X-ray tomography to map crystalline and amorphous phases in frozenbiomaterials.

Scaling characteristics of heart rate time series before the onset ofventricular tachycardia.

Baumert,M; Wessel,N; Schirdewan,A; Voss,A; Abbott,D Abstract Ventricular tachycardia (VT) provokes sudden cardiac death (SCD), which is amajor cause of mortality in developed countries. Implantable cardioverter-defibrillators (ICDs) arean efficient therapy for SCD prevention. In this study we analyze heart rate variability… Read moreScaling characteristics of heart rate time series before the onset ofventricular tachycardia.

Finite-element stress analysis of a multicomponent model of sheared andfocally-adhered endothelial cells.

Ferko,MC; Bhatnagar,A; Garcia,MB; Butler,PJ Abstract Hemodynamic forces applied at the apical surface of vascular endothelialcells may be redistributed to and amplified at remote intracellular organelles and protein complexeswhere they are transduced to biochemical signals. In this study we sought to… Read moreFinite-element stress analysis of a multicomponent model of sheared andfocally-adhered endothelial cells.

Biomechanical characterization of internal layer subfailure in blunt arterialinjury.

Stemper,BD; Yoganandan,N; Sinson,GP; Gennarelli,TA; Stineman,MR; Pintar,FA Abstract Blunt carotid artery injuries occur in 0.3% of blunt injured patients and maylead to devastating neurological consequences. However, arterial mechanics leading to internallayer subfailure have not been quantified. Twenty-two human carotid artery segments… Read moreBiomechanical characterization of internal layer subfailure in blunt arterialinjury.
