Enhanced auditory neuron survival following cell-based BDNF treatment in the deaf guinea pig
Exogenous neurotrophin delivery to the deaf cochlea can prevent deafness-induced auditory neuron degeneration, however, we have previously reported that these survival effects are rapidly lost if the treatment stops. In ...
Biocompatibility of immobilized aligned carbon nanotubes
In vivo host responses to an electrode-like array of aligned carbon nanotubes (ACNTs) embedded within a biopolymer sheet are reported. This biocompatibility study assesses the suitability of immobilized carbon nanotubes ...
The multi-channel cochlear implant: past, present and future perspectives
(John Wiley & sons, 2009)
Can we prevent cochlear implant recipients from developing pneumococcal meningitis
(Oxford University Press, 2008)
The restoration of hearing to persons with severely or profoundly impaired hearing by means of a cochlear implant is one of the great achievements of bionics applied to medicine. However, pneumococcal meningitis in implant ...
Promoting neurite outgrowth from spiral ganglion neuron explants using polypyrrole
(Wiley Periodicals Inc, 2009)
Conducting polymers, dual neurotrophins and pulsed electrical stimulation: dramatic effect on neurite outgrowth
Creating conductive structures for cell growth: growth and alignment of myogenic cell types on polythiophenes
Fast inhibition alters first spike timing in auditory brainstem neurons
(The American Physiological Society, 2004)
Wet-spun biodegradable fibres on conducting platforms: novel architectures for muscle regeneration
(Wiley InterScience, 2009)
Novel biosynthetic platforms supporting ex vivo growth of partially differentiated muscle cells in an aligned linear orientation that is consistent with the structural requirements of muscle tissue are described. These ...
Research directions for future generations of cochlear implants
(Whurr Publishers Ltd, 2004)
Physiological and psychophysical research indicates that improved hearing in noise and music appreciation are likely with cochlear implants, with better reproduction of the fine temporospatial patterns of neural response ...
