    Parallel imaging in magnetic resonance imaging is currently the primary route to decreasing scan time. Single echo acquisition (SEA) imaging is a completely parallel imaging method that collects a full image in a single echo. This article discusses the implications related to imaging with voxel-sized coils, specifically as they relate to the potential for SEA imaging with large planar and cylindri... View full abstract»

    We have presented a chemical analysis paradigm for neurochemical studies, as opposed to the traditional electrophysiological regime. We described electrochemical analysis and the instrumentation involved in doing such analysis. The article presents the design and characterization of a 16-channel, high-sensitivity, wide-range VLSI potentiostat. We demonstrate the use of this potentiostat in real-ti... View full abstract»

    This paper presents a refined method and design fabricating parylene neurocages for in vitro studies of live neural networks. This fabrication process is less complex than previous neurocage and neurowell fabrication processes. Parylene neurocages are biocompatible and very robust, making them ideally suited for studying the synaptic connections between individual neurons to gain insight into lear... View full abstract»

    This article describes a new steerable endoscope for laparoscopic surgery. The steerable mechanism was inspired by the tentacles of squid and consists only of standard parts such as cables, coil springs, rings, and tubes. Laparoscopic surgery is carried out using an endoscope and long and slender instruments that are inserted through small incisions in the abdominal wall. The endoscope contains a ...

    The continuous monitoring of electrical brain activity with implanted depth electrodes is essential for understanding the neural substrates of many physiological and pathological brain functions, such as emotion and epilepsy. Existing instrumentation uses wires to power and record directly from the brain. This article describes the theory involved in every aspect of the design of an inductively po... View full abstract»

    One of the most frequent effects of physical disability is reduced or impaired mobility. There are a number of technical aids for all the cases of physical impairment but none of the systems described in the literature address the particular problems of children affected by neuromotor disorders accompanied by mental retardation. The following addresses the development of the PALMA [(plataforma de ... View full abstract»

    This paper discusses the case which involved the battle between Gillette's MACH3 three-blade razor and Schick's QUATTRO four-blade razor. Gilette had sued Schick for patent infringement in its hometown of Boston. Gillette's patent had only one independent claim, and it called for a safety razor comprising a group of first, second, and third blades. Schick's position was simple its razor had four b...

    Given the debilitating effects of chronic depression and its economic impact on medical care, there is a need for a well-tolerated and effective long-term treatment for patients who do not respond fully to first-line antidepressant therapies such as antidepressant drugs (ADD), psychotherapy and electroconvulsive therapy. This paper discusses a new treatment that can address this need - the vagus n... View full abstract»
