    Typical atrial flutter is a macro-reentrant arrhythmia within the right atrium. Its zone of slow conduction is the so-called right atrial isthmus, representing the area between inferior vena cava, tricuspid annulus, and coronary sinus. Conduction block of this target area can terminate the arrhythmia and prevent reinduction. Isthmus ablation with radiofrequency (RF) energy is a well-established te... View full abstract»

    In the healthy brain, there is a highly organized relationship between sensory input from one part of the body and the motor cortical output to muscles acting on that same part. This work investigates whether a change in purely sensory input have an impact on the organization of the motor cortex. In a previous study transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) techniques were used to probe the excitabi... View full abstract»

    The aim of this article is to compute reliable templates of event-related potentials (ERPs) for homogeneous groups of subjects and to automatically quantify the morphological characteristics of the ERPs. We developed a method based on dynamic time warping (DTW). The method was applied to ERPs recorded from normal and dyslexic children during two reading tasks. We found that characteristic latency ...

    Repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) is able to modulate corticospinal and intracortical motor cortex excitability, depending on the stimulation parameters. In the present study, we explored the effects of highand low-frequency rTMS on spinal reflex monosynaptic responses (H waves or H reflexes) in humans recorded from the flexor carpi radialis (FCR) muscle. After 1-Hz rTMS, H-wave ... View full abstract»

    Chronic unilateral motor activity affects the motor output of the contralateral homologous muscle. Such adaptation, or "cross education," indicates an organizational and functional role for the contralateral elements of the central nervous system. In this article, cross education is used as a model to examine this contralateral organization of the human central nervous system. The possibility of w... View full abstract»

    This work takes a look at computer vision and graphics as interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary and transdisciplinary fields. Computer vision and graphics belong to the wide area of imaging but acquired their scientific autonomy with their own needs, goals, and methods. These two have brought many methodological contributions in interaction with physics, applied mathematics, etc. New concepts and p... View full abstract»

    The adult brain can reorganize to accommodate environmental modifications and to compensate for lost function, a process known as plasticity. The last few years have provided extraordinary evidence regarding the mechanisms underlying plastic changes and have spurred the development of new strategies to modulate these processes. The ability of the mature brain to constantly reorganize has gained fu... View full abstract»

    In the functional diagnostics of human sensor systems, the analysis of stimulus responses embedded in an electroencephalogram (EEG), e.g. evoked potentials (EPs), is of high relevance for an objective electrophysiological assessment. The aim of this work is to detect weak EPs from highly contaminated signal traces. In principle this can be done using methods of spatiotemporal signal processing, wh... View full abstract»

    The analysis of mammograms is a difficult task due to the subtle appearance of some lesions. Computer-aided diagnosis (CAD) have been shown to improve the sensitivity of detection of masses and calcifications; however, there is a need for dedicated methods to detect architectural distortion in the absence of a central mass. Improvement in the detection of architectural distortion may be expected t... View full abstract»

    One of the dominant approaches to tissue engineering is the seeding of biodegradable, biocompatible polymer scaffolds with progenitor cells prior to three-dimensional (3-D) culture or implantation. While the macroarchitecture of these scaffolds is important for anatomic fit, the microarchitecture has direct effects upon the ability of cells to attach, migrate, and thrive. Free-form fabrication - s... View full abstract»
