Design of a novel anterior cruciate ligament prosthesis
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2006)
Injuries to the anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) are extremely common (approximately 100,000 every year in the US) and result in greatly reduced mobility; although several surgical procedures have been devised to address ...
Toward optogenetic control of neural synchrony : experimental results from the hippocampal slice model of gamma oscillations and computational modeling
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2009)
Ever since Hans Berger recorded the first human EEGs in humans and observed large, rhythmic 8 Hz field oscillations, neuroscientists have been intrigued by the pervasive presence of synchronized, regular patterns of the ...
Mesoscale activated states gate spiking in the awake brain
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2016)
Neuronal action potentials ('spikes') are thought to be the fundamental units of information in the brain, hence the ability to record them and to understand their genesis is crucial to our comprehension of the biological ...
A novel polymeric microelectrode array for highly parallel, long-term neuronal culture and stimulation
(Massachusetts Institute of Technology, 2008)
Cell-based high-throughput screening is emerging as a disruptive technology in drug discovery; however, massively parallel electrical assaying of neurons and cardiomyocites has until now been prohibitively expensive. To ...
