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 ...
Skull Defects in Finite Element Head Models for Source Reconstruction from Magnetoencephalography Signals
(FRONTIERS MEDIA SA, 2016-04-07)
Magnetoencephalography (MEG) signals are influenced by skull defects. However, there is a lack of evidence of this influence during source reconstruction. Our objectives are to characterize errors in source reconstruction ...
7T-fMRI: Faster temporal resolution yields optimal BOLD sensitivity for functional network imaging specifically at high spatial resolution
(ACADEMIC PRESS INC ELSEVIER SCIENCE, 2018-01-01)
Recent developments in accelerated imaging methods allow faster acquisition of high spatial resolution images. This could improve the applications of functional magnetic resonance imaging at 7 Tesla (7T-fMRI), such as ...
Decellularized extracellular matrices produced from immortal cell lines derived from different parts of the placenta support primary mesenchymal stem cell expansion
(PUBLIC LIBRARY SCIENCE, 2017-02-02)
Mesenchymal stem/stromal cells (MSCs) exhibit undesired phenotypic changes during ex vivo expansion, limiting production of the large quantities of high quality primary MSCs needed for both basic research and cell therapies. ...
Visual cues for manual control of headway
(FRONTIERS RESEARCH FOUNDATION, 2013-05-21)
The ability to maintain appropriate gaps to objects in one's environment is important when navigating through a three-dimensional world. Previous research has shown that the visual angle subtended by a lead/approaching ...
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 ...
Three-dimensional modelling of auxetic sandwich panels for localised impact resistance
(SAGE PUBLICATIONS LTD, 2017-05-01)
Sandwich panels with auxetic lattice cores confined between metallic facets are proposed for localised impact resistance applications. Their performance under localised impact is numerically studied, considering the ...
Combining mechanical foaming and thermally induced phase separation to generate chitosan scaffolds for soft tissue engineering
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTD, 2017-01-01)
In this paper, a novel foaming methodology consisting of turbulent mixing and thermally induced phase separation (TIPS) was used to generate scaffolds for tissue engineering. Air bubbles were mechanically introduced into ...
IDH1 mutation is associated with seizures and protoplasmic subtype in patients with low-grade gliomas
OBJECTIVE: The isocitrate dehydrogenase 1 (IDH1) R132H mutation is the most common mutation in World Health Organization (WHO) grade II gliomas, reported to be expressed in 70-80%, but only 5-10% of high grade gliomas. Low ...
Friedreich's ataxia induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes display electrophysiological abnormalities and calcium handling deficiency
(IMPACT JOURNALS LLC, 2017-05-01)
We sought to identify the impacts of Friedreich's ataxia (FRDA) on cardiomyocytes. FRDA is an autosomal recessive degenerative condition with neuronal and non-neuronal manifestations, the latter including progressive ...
