    In this study, we compared experimentally measured fiber network kinematics and the macroscopic mechanical response from cell-compacted, cross-shaped collagen gels (cruciforms), with the predictions from our multiscale modeling technique. The macroscopic finite element model matched the physical dimensions and boundary conditions of the experimental cruciform to be modeled. Different microscale ne... View full abstract»

    Unifying the results obtained from the large-scale, physiologically realistic, yet minimal computational primary visual cortex (V1) network models and identifying the single cortical operating state, namely, an intermittent desuppressed state (IDS) with fluctuation-controlled criticality are presented. The study suggests a possible operating state of V1 characterised by high total conductance with... View full abstract»

    In this article, we have described a computational framework for multiscale simulation of gas flow in subject-specific airway models of the human lung. The framework consists of five major components: accurate extraction of airway geometry from MDCT image data sets, geometrical modeling of airway trees, novel 3-D and 1-D coupled mesh generation, 3-D high-fidelity CFD techniques for turbulent and t...

    A multiscale mathematical model was developed to distinguish responses of external and cellular respiration to exercise of moderate intensity. The simulation shows that the characteristic MRTs of external and cellular respiration are similar even when a transit delay exists between the tissue cells and the lungs. The results of our model show that the O2 transport processes from lungs t... View full abstract»

    Biomechanics is broadly defined as the scientific discipline that investigates the effects of forces acting on and within biological structures. The realm of biomechanics includes the circulatory and respiratory systems, tissue mechanics and mechanotransduction, and the musculoskeletal system and motor control. As in many other biological phenomena, many spatial scales are crossed by biomechanics ... View full abstract»

    The article discusses the accuracy mathematical modeling languages (MML) for biomedicine, for example in cardiac electrophysiology. Unit balance checking is showed that it can be automated. The implemented example is JSim (http://www.physiome.org/ jsim/), which is general and can be applied to other systems in which units can be specified and checked. ODE-based simulator Physiome CellML Environmen... View full abstract»

    The aim of the study is to create an ecosystem of affiliated laboratories that develops synergies within and around the Center for Neuroprosthetics that goes beyond the Ecole Polytechnique Federal de Lausanne (EPFL) campus. The ethical issues associated with the Center for Neuroprosthetics' research and how the scientists should address them together with the ethicists and society at large are tak...
