Colour-based computer image processing approach to melanoma diagnosis
Melanoma is one of the most prevalent skin cancers in the world. The incidence and mortality rates of melanoma in Australian populations have been sharply increasing over the last decades. For instance, it is represented ...
Seizure Prediction: Science Fiction or Soon to Become Reality?
This review highlights recent developments in the field of epileptic seizure prediction. We argue that seizure prediction is possible; however, most previous attempts have used data with an insufficient amount of information ...
Generation of Adrenal Chromaffin-like Cells from Human Pluripotent Stem Cells
(CELL PRESS, 2018-01-09)
Adrenomedullary chromaffin cells are catecholamine (CA)-producing cells originating from trunk neural crest (NC) via sympathoadrenal progenitors (SAPs). We generated NC and SAPs from human embryonic stem cells (ESCs) and ...
2-DIMENSIONAL DIFFUSION OF AMPHIPHILES IN PHOSPHOLIPID MONOLAYERS AT THE AIR-WATER-INTERFACE
(CELL PRESS, 1993-12-01)
Steady-state and time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy has been used to examine lateral diffusion in dipalmitoyl-L-alpha-phosphatidylcholine (DPPC) and dimyristoyl-L-alpha-phosphatidylcholine (DMPC) monolayers at the ...
Effects of industrial gas impurities on the performance of mixed matrix membranes
(ELSEVIER SCIENCE BV, 2018-03-01)
Automated framework to reconstruct 3D model of cardiac Z-disk: an image processing approach
The Z-disk or Z-line is located at the lateral borders of sarcomere, the fundamental unit of striated muscle. They provide mechanical stability and can boost contractility of cardiac myocytes. In this paper, we propose to ...
Feasibility of a Chronic, Minimally Invasive Endovascular Neural Interface
Development of a neural interface that can be implanted without risky, open brain surgery will increase the safety and viability of chronic neural recording arrays. We have developed a minimally invasive surgical procedure ...
Signal quality of simultaneously recorded endovascular, subdural and epidural signals are comparable
(NATURE PUBLISHING GROUP, 2018-05-30)
Recent work has demonstrated the feasibility of minimally-invasive implantation of electrodes into a cortical blood vessel. However, the effect of the dura and blood vessel on recording signal quality is not understood and ...
Feasibility of Nitrogen Doped Ultrananocrystalline Diamond Microelectrodes for Electrophysiological Recording From Neural Tissue
(FRONTIERS MEDIA SA, 2018-06-22)
Neural prostheses that can monitor the physiological state of a subject are becoming clinically viable through improvements in the capacity to record from neural tissue. However, a significant limitation of current devices ...
Phenotypic and Functional Characterization of Peripheral Sensory Neurons derived from Human Embryonic Stem Cells
(NATURE PUBLISHING GROUP, 2018-01-12)
The dorsal root ganglia (DRG) consist of a multitude of sensory neuronal subtypes that function to relay sensory stimuli, including temperature, pressure, pain and position to the central nervous system. Our knowledge of ...
