Comparison of Acoustic Voice Features Derived From Mobile Devices and Studio ...
Tuesday, November 15, 2022

CONCLUSIONS: Mobile devices provided good agreement with state of the art, high-quality microphones during structured speech tasks for features derived from frequency components of the audio recordings. Caution should be taken when estimating HNR, shimmer and its variants from recordings made wit... .. read more..

Prediction of low pulse oxygen saturation in COVID-19 using remote monitoring...
Tuesday, November 8, 2022

CONCLUSION: Results indicate that SpO(2) alerts (SpO(2) < 94 %) on a given day can be predicted using SpO(2) and heart rate data captured on the two preceding days via remote monitoring. The methods presented may help early identification of patients with COVID-19 at risk of clinical deterioratio... .. read more..

Feasibility of pair-housing of rats after cranial implant surgery
Tuesday, October 11, 2022

Rat models employing cranial implants are increasingly employed to facilitate neural stimulation and recording in freely moving animals. Due to possible damage to wound, implant or attached devices, rats with cranial implants are traditionally housed singly, and little information is available on... .. read more..

Computational Model of the Effect of Mitochondrial Dysfunction on Excitation-...
Saturday, September 17, 2022

It has become well established that mitochondria not only regulate myoplasmic calcium in skeletal muscle, but also use that calcium to stimulate oxidative phosphorylation (OXPHOS). While experimental approaches have allowed for imaging of mitochondrial calcium and membrane potentials in isolated ... .. read more..

Consensus for experimental design in electromyography (CEDE) project: High-de...
Monday, March 28, 2022

High-density surface electromyography (HDsEMG) can be used to measure the spatial distribution of electrical muscle activity over the skin. As this distribution is associated with the generation and propagation of muscle fiber action potentials, HDsEMG is processed to extract information on regio... .. read more..

Age-related fatigability in knee extensors and knee flexors during dynamic fa...
Saturday, January 8, 2022

This study investigated the effects of dynamic knee extension and flexion fatiguing task on torque and neuromuscular responses in young and older individuals. Eighteen young (8 males; 25.1 ± 3.2 years) and 17 older (8 males; 69.7 ± 3.7 years) volunteered. Following a maximal voluntary isometric c... .. read more..

Characterization of geometric variance in the epithelial nerve net of the cte...
Tuesday, December 21, 2021

Neuroscience lacks a diverse repertoire of model organisms, resulting in an incomplete understanding of the general principles of neural function. Ctenophores display many neurobiological and experimental features which make them a promising candidate to fill this gap. They possess a nerve net di... .. read more..

Detection of spontaneous seizures in EEGs in multiple experimental mouse mode...
Monday, October 4, 2021

Objective.Electroencephalography (EEG) is a key tool for non-invasive recording of brain activity and the diagnosis of epilepsy. EEG monitoring is also widely employed in rodent models to track epilepsy development and evaluate experimental therapies and interventions. Whereas automated seizure d... .. read more..

Spindle-AI: Sleep Spindle Number and Duration Estimation in Infant EEG
Monday, July 19, 2021

CONCLUSION AND SIGNIFICANCE: Spindle-AI has been implemented as a web server that has the potential to assist clinicians in the fast and accurate monitoring of sleep spindles in infant EEGs. .. read more..

Tuesday, June 8, 2021

Consensus on the definition of common terms in electromyography (EMG) research promotes consistency in the EMG literature and facilitates the integration of research across the field. This paper presents a matrix developed within the Consensus for Experimental Design in Electromyography (CEDE) pr... .. read more..

Methods for Lowering the Power Consumption of OS-Based Adaptive Deep Brain St...
Saturday, April 3, 2021

The identification of a new generation of adaptive strategies for deep brain stimulation (DBS) will require the development of mixed hardware-software systems for testing and implementing such controllers clinically. Towards this aim, introducing an operating system (OS) that provides high-level ... .. read more..

Cortical network effects of subthalamic deep brain stimulation in a thalamo-c...
Friday, March 12, 2021

Objective. High frequency deep brain stimulation (DBS) of the subthalamic nucleus (STN) suppresses excessive beta band (∼13-30 Hz) activity of the motor cortex in Parkinson's disease (PD). While the mechanisms of action of STN DBS are not well-understood, strong evidence supports a role for corti... .. read more..

Effects of extracellular potassium on calcium handling and force generation i...
Friday, March 5, 2021

It is well-established that extracellular potassium (K(o)^(+)) accumulation reduces muscle fiber excitability, however the effects of K(o)^(+) on the excitation-contraction coupling (ECC) pathway are less understood. In vivo and in vitro studies following fatiguing stimulation protocols are limit... .. read more..
