Informational and Neuromuscular Contributions to Anchoring in Rhythmic Wrist Cycling

Continuous rhythmic movements are often geared toward particular points in the movement cycle, as evidenced by a local reduction in trajectory variability. These so-called anchor points provide a window into motor control, since changes in the degree of anchoring may reveal how informational and/or neuromuscular properties are exploited in the organization of rhythmic movements...

Out of Academics: Education, Entrepreneurship and Enterprise

The author started a niche biotech company in 1985 called Flexcell® to distribute an enabling technology, mechanobiology devices, to the field. He was the first University of North Carolina faculty member to start a company and stay with it as he pursued his career in academics. That was an unpopular route at that time, but a path he was driven to navigate. Those interests...

Brain Injury Prediction: Assessing the Combined Probability of Concussion Using Linear and Rotational Head Acceleration

Recent research has suggested possible long term effects due to repetitive concussions, highlighting the importance of developing methods to accurately quantify concussion risk. This study introduces a new injury metric, the combined probability of concussion, which computes the overall risk of concussion based on the peak linear and rotational accelerations experienced by the...

Retraction to: Annals of Biomedical Engineering (2011) 39(2): 674–687 DOI 10.1007/s10439-010-0197-xThe Editors of the Annals of Biomedical Engineering are officially retracting the published article entitled, “Non-thermal Plasma Induces Apoptosis in Melanoma Cells via Production of Intracellular Reactive Oxygen Species” by Sensenig, et al., Annals of Biomedical Engineering (2011...

An Automated System for Grading EEG Abnormality in Term Neonates with Hypoxic-Ischaemic Encephalopathy

Automated analysis of the neonatal EEG has the potential to assist clinical decision making for neonates with hypoxic-ischaemic encephalopathy. This paper proposes a method of automatically grading the degree of abnormality in an hour long epoch of neonatal EEG. The automated grading system (AGS) was based on a multi-class linear classifier grading of short-term epochs of EEG...

Optimal Flow and Pressure Management in Machine Perfusion Systems for Organ Preservation

Intra-organ flow is the most critical parameter in machine-perfused organ preservation systems (MPS). Ultrasonic flow sensors (UFS) are commonly employed in MPS. However, UFS are sensitive to changes in fluid composition and temperature and require recalibration. Novel Coriolis-type mass flow sensors (CFS) may be more suitable for MPS because the measurement technique is not...

Getting Your Research Out There: Open Access & More

Publications in archival journals serve an important purpose in the life of a professional organization such as the Biomedical Engineering Society. BMES journals offer a venue for novel research to be vetted and reviewed by respected biomedical engineers who frequently hold positions of significance in industry or academia. This rigorous process of peer-review in a BMES journal...

Multiscale Modeling and Data Integration in the Virtual Physiological Rat Project

It has become increasingly evident that the descriptions of many complex diseases are only possible by taking into account multiple influences at different physiological scales. To do this with computational models often requires the integration of several models that have overlapping scales (genes to molecules, molecules to cells, cells to tissues). The Virtual Physiological Rat...

The Multi-Scale Modelling of Coronary Blood Flow

Coronary flow is governed by a number of determinants including network anatomy, systemic afterload and the mechanical interaction with the myocardium throughout the cardiac cycle. The range of spatial scales and multi-physics nature of coronary perfusion highlights a need for a multiscale framework that captures the relevant details at each level of the network. The goal of this...

Collaborative Gaze Channelling for Improved Cooperation During Robotic Assisted Surgery

The use of multiple robots for performing complex tasks is becoming a common practice for many robot applications. When different operators are involved, effective cooperation with anticipated manoeuvres is important for seamless, synergistic control of all the end-effectors. In this paper, the concept of Collaborative Gaze Channelling (CGC) is presented for improved control of...

Trabecular Level Analysis of Bone Cement Augmentation: A Comparative Experimental and Finite Element Study

The representation of cement–augmented bone in finite element (FE) models of vertebrae following vertebroplasty remains a challenge, and the methods of the model validation are limited. The aim of this study was to create specimen-specific FE models of cement–augmented synthetic bone at the microscopic level, and to develop a new methodology to validate these models. An open cell...
