Novel therapeutic strategy against central baroreflex failure: a bionic baroreflex system. (1/31)

BACKGROUND: Central baroreflex failure in Shy-Drager syndrome and traumatic spinal cord injuries results in severe orthostatic hypotension and often confines the patient to the bed. We proposed a novel therapeutic strategy against central baroreflex failure: implementation of an artificial feedback control system able automatically to regulate sympathetic vasomotor tone, that is, a bionic baroreflex system (BBS). With the use of a rat model of central baroreflex failure, we developed the BBS and tested its efficacy. METHODS AND RESULTS: Our prototype BBS for the rat consisted of a pressure sensor placed into the aortic arch, stimulation electrodes implanted into the greater splanchnic nerve, and a computer-driven neural stimulator. By a white noise approach for system identification, we first estimated the dynamic properties underlying the normal baroreflex control of systemic arterial pressure (SAP) and then determined how the BBS computer should operate in real time as the artificial vasomotor center to mimic the dynamic properties of the native baroreflex. The open-loop transfer function of the artificial vasomotor center was identified as a high-pass filter with a corner frequency of 0.1 Hz. We evaluated the performance of the BBS in response to rapid-progressive hypotension secondary to sudden sympathetic withdrawal evoked by the local imposition of a pressure step on carotid sinus baroreceptors in 16 anesthetized rats. Without the BBS, SAP rapidly fell by 49+/-8 mm Hg in 10 seconds. With the BBS placed on-line with real-time execution, the SAP fall was suppressed by 22+/-6 mm Hg at the nadir and by 16+/-5 mm Hg at the plateau. These effects were statistically indistinguishable from those of the native baroreflex system. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest the feasibility of a BBS approach for central baroreflex failure.  (+info)

Bionic technology revitalizes native baroreflex function in rats with baroreflex failure. (2/31)

BACKGROUND: We developed a bionic technology for the treatment of baroreflex failure and tested its efficacy in restoration of arterial pressure against head-up tilt (HUT) in rats with baroreflex failure. METHODS AND RESULTS: The bionic baroreflex system (BBS) was a negative feedback system controlled by a computer, the artificial vasomotor center. It sensed systemic arterial pressure (SAP) through a micromanometer placed in the aortic arch and automatically computed the frequency of a pulse train to stimulate sympathetic efferent nerves. We selected the celiac ganglion as the sympathetic vasomotor interface. To make this system bionic, the operational rule of the artificial vasomotor center (H(BRP-->STM); BRP indicates baroreceptor pressure; STM, electrical stimulation) was actively matched to that of the native center. First, we identified the open-loop transfer functions of the native baroreflex control of SAP (H(Native)) and the response of SAP to electrical stimulation of the celiac ganglion (H(STM-->SAP)). We computed H(BRP-->STM) from H(Native)/H(STM-->SAP) and transplanted the operational rule into the computer. In 10 rats with baroreflex failure, we evaluated the performance of the BBS during rapid hypotension induced by HUT. Abrupt HUT dropped SAP by 34+/-6 mm Hg in 2 seconds and by 52+/-5 mm Hg in 10 seconds. During real-time execution of the BBS, on the other hand, the fall in SAP was 21+/-5 mm Hg at 2 seconds and 15+/-6 mm Hg at 10 seconds after HUT. These arterial responses controlled by the BBS were indistinguishable from those by the native baroreflex. CONCLUSIONS: We concluded that the BBS revitalized the native baroreflex function in rats with baroreflex failure.  (+info)

Bionic epidural stimulation restores arterial pressure regulation during orthostasis. (3/31)

A bionic baroreflex system (BBS) is a computer-assisted intelligent feedback system to control arterial pressure (AP) for the treatment of baroreflex failure. To apply this system clinically, an appropriate efferent neural (sympathetic vasomotor) interface has to be explored. We examined whether the spinal cord is a candidate site for such interface. In six anesthetized and baroreflex-deafferentiated cats, a multielectrode catheter was inserted into the epidural space to deliver epidural spinal cord stimulation (ESCS). Stepwise changes in ESCS rate revealed a linear correlation between ESCS rate and AP for ESCS rates of 2 pulses/s and above (r2, 0.876-0.979; slope, 14.3 +/- 5.8 mmHg.pulses(-1).s; pressure axis intercept, 35.7 +/- 25.9 mmHg). Random changes in ESCS rate with a white noise sequence revealed dynamic transfer function of peripheral effectors. The transfer function resembled a second-order, low-pass filter with a lag time (gain, 16.7 +/- 8.3 mmHg.pulses(-1).s; natural frequency, 0.022 +/- 0.007 Hz; damping coefficient, 2.40 +/- 1.07; lag time, 1.06 +/- 0.41 s). On the basis of the transfer function, we designed an artificial vasomotor center to attenuate hypotension. We evaluated the performance of the BBS against hypotension induced by 60 degrees head-up tilt. In the cats with baroreflex failure, head-up tilt dropped AP by 37 +/- 5 mmHg in 5 s and 59 +/- 11 mmHg in 30 s. BBS with optimized feedback parameters attenuated hypotension to 21 +/- 2 mmHg in 5 s (P < 0.05) and 8 +/- 4 mmHg in 30 s (P < 0.05). These results indicate that ESCS-mediated BBS prevents orthostatic hypotension. Because epidural stimulation is a clinically feasible procedure, this BBS can be applied clinically to combat hypotension associated with various pathophysiologies.  (+info)

Artificial baroreflex: clinical application of a bionic baroreflex system. (4/31)

BACKGROUND: We proposed a novel therapeutic strategy against central baroreflex failure: implementation of an artificial baroreflex system to automatically regulate sympathetic vasomotor tone, ie, a bionic baroreflex system (BBS), and we tested its efficacy in a model of sudden hypotension during surgery. METHODS AND RESULTS: The BBS consisted of a computer-controlled negative-feedback circuit that sensed arterial pressure (AP) and automatically computed the frequency (STM) of a pulse train required to stimulate sympathetic nerves via an epidural catheter placed at the level of the lower thoracic spinal cord. An operation rule was subsequently designed for the BBS using a feedback correction with proportional and integral gain factors. The transfer function from STM to AP was identified by a white noise system identification method in 12 sevoflurane-anesthetized patients undergoing orthopedic surgery involving the cervical vertebrae, and the feedback correction factors were determined with a numerical simulation to enable the BBS to quickly and stably attenuate an external disturbance on AP. The performance of the designed BBS was then examined in a model of orthostatic hypotension during knee joint surgery (n=21). Without the implementation of the BBS, a sudden deflation of a thigh tourniquet resulted in a 17+/-3 mm Hg decrease in AP within 10 seconds and a 25+/-2 mm Hg decrease in AP within 50 seconds. By contrast, during real-time execution of the BBS, the decrease in AP was 9+/-2 mm Hg at 10 seconds and 1+/-2 mm Hg at 50 seconds after the deflation. CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest the feasibility of a BBS approach for central baroreflex failure.  (+info)

Fuel-powered artificial muscles. (5/31)

Artificial muscles and electric motors found in autonomous robots and prosthetic limbs are typically battery-powered, which severely restricts the duration of their performance and can necessitate long inactivity during battery recharge. To help solve these problems, we demonstrated two types of artificial muscles that convert the chemical energy of high-energy-density fuels to mechanical energy. The first type stores electrical charge and uses changes in stored charge for mechanical actuation. In contrast with electrically powered electrochemical muscles, only half of the actuator cycle is electrochemical. The second type of fuel-powered muscle provides a demonstrated actuator stroke and power density comparable to those of natural skeletal muscle and generated stresses that are over a hundred times higher.  (+info)

Volitional control of neural activity: implications for brain-computer interfaces. (6/31)

Successful operation of brain-computer interfaces (BCI) and brain-machine interfaces (BMI) depends significantly on the degree to which neural activity can be volitionally controlled. This paper reviews evidence for such volitional control in a variety of neural signals, with particular emphasis on the activity of cortical neurons. Some evidence comes from conventional experiments that reveal volitional modulation in neural activity related to behaviours, including real and imagined movements, cognitive imagery and shifts of attention. More direct evidence comes from studies on operant conditioning of neural activity using biofeedback, and from BCI/BMI studies in which neural activity controls cursors or peripheral devices. Limits in the degree of accuracy of control in the latter studies can be attributed to several possible factors. Some of these factors, particularly limited practice time, can be addressed with long-term implanted BCIs. Preliminary observations with implanted circuits implementing recurrent BCIs are summarized.  (+info)

Assistive technology and robotic control using motor cortex ensemble-based neural interface systems in humans with tetraplegia. (7/31)

This review describes the rationale, early stage development, and initial human application of neural interface systems (NISs) for humans with paralysis. NISs are emerging medical devices designed to allow persons with paralysis to operate assistive technologies or to reanimate muscles based upon a command signal that is obtained directly from the brain. Such systems require the development of sensors to detect brain signals, decoders to transform neural activity signals into a useful command, and an interface for the user. We review initial pilot trial results of an NIS that is based on an intracortical microelectrode sensor that derives control signals from the motor cortex. We review recent findings showing, first, that neurons engaged by movement intentions persist in motor cortex years after injury or disease to the motor system, and second, that signals derived from motor cortex can be used by persons with paralysis to operate a range of devices. We suggest that, with further development, this form of NIS holds promise as a useful new neurotechnology for those with limited motor function or communication. We also discuss the additional potential for neural sensors to be used in the diagnosis and management of various neurological conditions and as a new way to learn about human brain function.  (+info)

Finite machines, mental procedures, and modern physics. (8/31)

A Turing machine provides a mathematical definition of the natural process of calculating. It rests on trust that a procedure of reason can be reproduced mechanically. Turing's analysis of the concept of mechanical procedure in terms of a finite machine convinced Godel of the validity of the Church thesis. And yet, Godel's later concern was that, insofar as Turing's work shows that "mental procedure cannot go beyond mechanical procedures", it would imply the same kind of limitation on human mind. He therefore deems Turing's argument to be inconclusive. The question then arises as to which extent a computing machine operating by finite means could provide an adequate model of human intelligence. It is argued that a rigorous answer to this question can be given by developing Turing's considerations on the nature of mental processes. For Turing such processes are the consequence of physical processes and he seems to be led to the conclusion that quantum mechanics could help to find a more comprehensive explanation of them.  (+info)

This thesis presents the very first bionics chemical synapse which has the capability to sense the neurotransmitter (glutamate) and imitates the physiological behaviour of certain chemical synapse receptors (i.e. AMPA, NMDA, GABAA and GABAB). This bionics chemical synapse consists of two main parts: the glutamate ISFETs that act as neurotransmitter sensors and the current-mode CMOS circuits that have been designed to match the physiological behaviour of the chemical synapses. This bionics chemical synapse requires a sub-nano Siemens operational transconductance amplifier (OTA) to develop a low conductance gain for each chemical synapse receptor (0.1nS). A combination of two OTA designs was required to decrease the overall transconductance gain, which were: the bulk driven transistor and the drain current normalisation. To create the bionics chemical synapse, a neurotransmitter sensor is required as the chemical front-end for each receptor circuit. The sensor that was used is an enzyme-modified ...

The "Hybrid Assistive Limb" robot suit (dubbed HAL) detects natural electrical currents that pass over the surface of the skin, thus, anticipating muscle movement. After recognizing the electrical current, the suit performs limb movement. HAL weighs 11 kilograms (24 pounds), and Takashi Hama, an executive official of Daiwa House Industry, is convinced that this is a key feature. "You dont feel the weight of the robot at all," he recently said. Sankais invention first came into prominence in 2006 when he helped Seiji Uchida, who has been bound to a wheelchair since a car accident in 1983, to try and climb a peak in the Swiss Alps. "I see big possibilities for HAL, which not only helps handicapped people move on their own but also assists caretakers in caring for someone like me," said Uchida, now 46. "I asked professor Sankai directly to help me take up the challenge of mountain climbing," he recalled, and added: "Its been two years since. I think the latest model has a better battery system ...

Hypertension is a result of high blood pressure. There is about twenty percent out of all of the adults is the United States that have this. If a person recieves hypertension as a result to having a disease is known as Secondary hypertension. Any person that has a systolic blood pressure over 115 mmHg and a diastolic pressure over 75 mmHg is at risk for developing hypertension. If a person can keep their blood pressure under 120/80 mmHg, they can reduce their risk of getting heart failure, heart attacks, strokes, and kidney disease. If a renal artery is pinched is increases your heart rate. Some possible causes of secondary hypertension is kidney disease, renal artery disease, excess aldosterone, damage to vasomotor center, excess catecholamines, a complete heart block, increased intacranial pressure, and arteriosclerosis. A person with a high salt diet, which casues an increase in plasma osmolality, is associated with hypertension. Hypertension is known as the silent killer because when a ...

ILMxLAB Creative Director, John Gaeta, explained, "ILMxLAB is thinking about the remarkable potential for conceptual robotics design and what better way to embrace that then help bring some emotion and imagination to the type of robotics that can change peoples lives. Its an area where science fiction is converging on everyday fact. We want to be part of that as the lines blur. According to Open Bionics there are an estimated 2 million hand amputees worldwide. Most have no prosthesis and due to the high cost associated with traditional robotic hands very few have access to those either.

He cant. But dont rule out the possibility.. Powered exoskeletons once looked like a technological dead end, like flying cars and hoverboards. It wasnt that you couldnt make one. It was that you couldnt make it practical. Early attempts were absurdly bulky, inflexible and needed too much electricity.. Those limitations havent gone away. But in the past 10 years, the state of the art has been advancing so fast that even Google cant keep up. Ask the search engine, "How do exoskeletons work?" and the top result is an article from 2011 headlined, "How Exoskeletons Will Work." As Woo can testify, the future tense is no longer necessary. The question now is, how widespread will they become - and what extraordinary powers will they give us?. Woos exoskeleton, a 50-pound aluminum-and-titanium suit that takes a step with the push of a button, is called the Ekso, and its the flagship model of the Richmond, Calif.-based startup Ekso Bionics.

Researchers have succeeded in linking together artificial cells, paving the way for new types of chemical catalysts and drug delivery systems.. In a paper published in the journal Nature Communications, a team headed by Yuval Elani from Imperial College London in the UK reports successfully inducing cell-sized double-layered fluid-filled compartments to link up with each other, thus solving one of the key performance issues with artificial cell technologies.. "Artificial cell membranes usually bounce off each other like rubber balls," says Elani. "By altering the biophysics of the membranes in our cells, we got them instead to stick to each other like stickle bricks."{%recommended 7042%}. Getting the cells to adhere to each other is important, because the resulting shapes - and the connections between them - potentially allow a wide range of uses, including the development of a new smart biomaterials. Artificial cells are considered valuable basic building blocks in the emerging field of ...
Microgels as Artificial Cells. AIM. Design and optimize microgels with cell-like properties to advance 3D cell culture studies.. INTRODUCTION. Culturing cells in aggregates is a very efficient approach to study their interactions in a natural 3D environment. However, complete understanding of cell-cell interactions in cellular co-cultures has not yet been achieved. We hypothesize that artificial cells made from small hydrogel beads (i.e., microgels) could play a significant role in gaining deeper understanding of cellular interactions. Specifically, we aim to engineer microgels with the size and certain functions of natural cells. Custom modifications of these artificial cells would enables the controlled study of specific interactions within 3D cell aggregates.. Recently, our group has developed a microfluidic platform for the production of cell adhesive microgels that can be incorporated in cell aggregates.[1] We have demonstrated that these cell/gel microcultures can be cultured for several ...
Liposomes have been used as artificial cell models to understand cell shape, membrane protein function, and lipid−protein interaction, among other biological functions (1⇓-3). In addition, liposomes have been used as a platform for biosensing and as drug delivery systems (DDS) because of their excellent biocompatibility and biodegradability (4). However, liposomes collapse easily against environmental shifts and mechanical forces because of their low bending modulus. The fragility of liposomes causes uncontrolled leakage of the entrapped compounds and thus inhibits their use in biomedical applications and artificial cells experiments.. In contrast, cell membranes are tolerant against environmental shifts and mechanical forces. The stability of cell membrane arises from the cytoskeleton underneath the membrane. The major component of cytoskeletons is actin (5). Actin gels show high elasticity (6), which ensures the stability of cell membranes against various forces. For liposomes, the use of ...

The success of life on earth is based on the amazing ability of living cells to divide themselves into two daughter cells. During such a division process, the outer cell membrane has to undergo a series of morphological transformations that ultimately lead to membrane fission. Scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Colloids and Interfaces, Potsdam, and at the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research, Mainz, have now achieved unprecedented control over these shape transformations and the resulting division process by anchoring low densities of proteins to the artificial cell membranes. [Nature Communications 11, 905 (2020) DOI 10.1038/s41467-020-14696-0]. All living organisms on earth are built up from individual cells. Furthermore, the proliferation and growth of these organisms is based on the ability of each cell to divide into two daughter cells. During the division process, the cell membrane, which provides the outer boundary of the cell, has to undergo a series of morphological ...
Chemists have taken an important step in making artificial life forms from scratch. Using a novel chemical reaction, they have created self-assembling cell membranes, the structural envelopes that contain and support the reactions required for life.. Neal Devaraj, assistant professor of chemistry at the University of California, San Diego, and Itay Budin, a graduate student at Harvard University, report their success in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.. "One of our long term, very ambitious goals is to try to make an artificial cell, a synthetic living unit from the bottom up - to make a living organism from non-living molecules that have never been through or touched a living organism," Devaraj said. "Presumably this occurred at some point in the past. Otherwise life wouldnt exist.". By assembling an essential component of earthly life with no biological precursors, they hope to illuminate lifes origins..

Systems and methods provide baroreflex activation to treat or reduce pain and/or to cause or enhance sedation or sleep. Methods involve activating the baroreflex system to provide pain reduction, sedation, improved sleep or some combination thereof. Systems include at least one baroreflex activation device, at least one sensor for sensing physiological activity of the patient, and a processor coupled with the baroreflex activation device(s) and the sensor(s) for processing sensed data received from the sensor and for activating the baroreflex activation device. In some embodiments, the system is fully implantable within a patient, such as in an intravascular, extravascular or intramural location.
In this study, we sought to characterize the physiological and molecular mechanisms of the previously described pressor effect of water ingestion. The baroreflex deafferented mouse model allowed us to better observe the BP effects of water without buffering by an intact baroreflex system. Our results showing the presence of a robust pressor response after both intragastric and intraduodenal infusions place the location of waters actions at or distal to the duodenum and show that water elicits its actions independent of pharyngeal and esophageal mechanisms. We also show that the stimulus eliciting the response is osmotic in nature, because only water, and not saline, produced a pressor response. Furthermore, the absence of a pressor response with saline infusion makes luminal stretch an unlikely explanation for the increase in BP, because both fluids would have induced equal duodenal stretch. However, luminal stretch may play a role during the period of infusion when the GI tract is experiencing ...
The present invention provides systems, devices, and methods for using the same for activating (stimulating) the baroreflex system of a patient using a baroreflex activation system with incrementally changing therapy intensity by sensing/monitoring/interpreting sensed data.

The symposium on The $6 Billion (Hu)Man is part of the scientific program of the American Association of Anatomists. Bionics, a word that merges biology with electronics, means replacing or enhancing anatomical structures or physiological processes with electronic or mechanical components Unlike prostheses, the bionic implant actually mimics the original function, sometimes surpassing the power of the original organ or other body part. Bionics takes place at the interface between bioengineering and anatomy. The AAA scientific program at Experimental Biology also includes a symposium on tissue engineering, another means of replacing organs or organ function. Dr. William Craelius, Rutgers University, created the first multi-finger prosthesis, combining new understanding of musculoskeletal signaling with advances in human-to-machine communication. In recent years, prosthetic limbs have transformed from the unwieldy designs of the last century into more life-like limb substitutes that give users a ...

Beginning with an artificial membrane composed of a bilayer of phopholipids (similar to the lipid bilayers that form the membranes of living cells), the team created "shuttle" molecules that were soluble inside the lipid layer of the membrane, but not in the water inside and outside the "cell." These molecules, through the addition or removal of electrons, bind calcium ions at the outside surface of the liposome (these ions are water soluble and not ordinarily able to enter the oily lipid environment of the membrane), take them across the membrane, and release them at the membrane s inner surface. The ions, which cannot remain in the lipid environment, go to the water solution inside the cell, raising its concentration of calcium ions ...

Over long years, neuroscientists have attempted to trace in cartographic detail the neural circuitry underlying goal-oriented movements, such as reaching, grasping, and handling objects. The modularity, precision, and smoothness of such movements arise from motor commands that descend from the brain to muscles, triggering rapid and continual feedback, which in turn helps fine tune the impact of descending commands. Such interlacing flow of electrical signals through sprawling neuronal networks underlies the fine motor skills that mammals summon with seeming ease in the service of routine tasks. But the identity of the neurons that seem to effortlessly thread their way through limb muscles, the spinal cord, and the brain to furnish such rapid feedback has long remained veiled from the mapmakers view. Using molecular sleight of hand to manipulate individual groups of neurons in the spinal cord of mice, Columbia University neuroscientist Thomas Jessell and his team uncovered neuronal control ...

Pseudocapacitors store electrical energy faradaically by electron charge transfer between electrode and electrolyte. This is accomplished through electrosorption, reduction-oxidation reactions (redox reactions), and intercalation processes, termed pseudocapacitance. A pseudocapacitor is part of an electrochemical capacitor, and forms together with an electric double-layer capacitor (EDLC) to create a supercapacitor. Pseudocapacitance and double-layer capacitance add up to a common inseparable capacitance value of a supercapacitor. However, they can be effective with very different parts of the total capacitance value depending on the design of the electrodes. A pseudocapacitance may be higher by a factor of 100 as a double-layer capacitance with the same electrode surface. A pseudocapacitor has a chemical reaction at the electrode, unlike EDLCs where the electrical charge storage is stored electrostatically with no interaction between the electrode and the ions. Pseudocapacitance is accompanied ...
Why is the Dim Mak effective? The carotid sinus is a special sensory organ regulating the pressure of blood flow to the brain. The carotid sinus is located over internal and external carotid arteries. When blood pressure is too high, the carotid sinus signals the vasomotor center of the brain to decrease the blood pressure by dilating peripheral blood vessels and slowing down heart rate. Thats why it can result in a loss of consciousness along with a build up of plaques in the carotid arteries. By striking this area, small tears can result in the carotid arteries and blood clots. Death can occur by striking this area. Thats why doctors look for a pulse because the carotid artery is a major indicator of life. A very helpful resource in understanding more on Dim Mak is Dr. Michael Kellys (a sports medical doctor) book "Death Touch: The Science of Dim Mak (1). In this book, he explains that stimulating a nerve through a Dim Mak point connected to an internal organ can cause damage ...

Liposomes are small hollow vesicles whose double-layer membranes are built of a double layer of phospholipids. These phospholipids consist of a ball-shaped water-soluble part and a tail-shaped fat-soluble part. These natural phospholipids are produced from soy. In an aqueous solution the phospholipids form a ball-shaped structure, the liposomes, through an appropriate supply of energy. During this process the lipophilic ends of the phospholipids contact each other and thus form a double-layer membrane that is hydrophilic on its two outer sides and lipophilic from its inner side. Therefore, the inside and the outside of a liposome is water-soluble and the inside of the liposome membrane is fat-soluble. The result is that a liposome can absorb and carry water-soluble substances (for example, vitamin C and chemical preservatives into the inside of the liposome) as well as fat-soluble agents (for example, vitamin E and fragrance substances in the liposome membrane). This transport function (carrier ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Aortic depressor nerve stimulation does not impede the dynamic characteristics of the carotid sinus baroreflex in normotensive or spontaneously hypertensive rats. AU - Kawada, Toru.

N2 - Recent clinical trials in patients with drug-resistant hypertension indicate that electrical activation of the carotid sinus baroreflex (baroreflex activation therapy) can reduce arterial pressure (AP) for more than a year. To examine whether the electrical stimulation from one baroreflex system impedes normal short-term AP regulation via another unstimulated baroreflex system, we electrically stimulated the left aortic depressor nerve (ADN) while estimating the dynamic characteristics of the carotid sinus baroreflex in anesthetized normotensive Wistar-Kyoto (WKY, n=8) rats and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHR, n=7). Isolated carotid sinus ...
The intracarotid injection of hypertonic saline in the rabbit induces a brief drop in arterial pressure followed by a somewhat longer pressor phase. The "osmoreceptors" activating these changes are related to the hindbrain and are not the elements responsible for releasing neurohypophysial hormones. The pressure changes are not prevented by vagotomy, deafferentation of the carotid body and sinus, adrenalectomy, or parasympathetic blockade. The blood pressure effects are interpreted as resulting from sequential inhibition and stimulation of medullary vasomotor centers by the hypertonic solutions.. ...

Description: Over the recent years significant progress has been made in the development of bioinspired materials and therapeutic approaches. Although some of these new technologies are developed in craniofacial models or have a potential to revolutionize dental and craniofacial medicine, the dental community is not well informed about these new and exciting developments. The goal of this symposium is to provide an update on the current scientific developments, which can lead to novel bioinspired technologies for craniofacial repair and regeneration. Dr. Sfeir (University of Pittsburgh, Pittsburgh, PA) will talk about NanoCaP cements for craniofacial regeneration, which utilize calcium phosphate nanoparticles as carriers for osteogenic molecules. These cements cure at physiological pH and can be resorbed in the body and substituted by bone tissue in a matter of months. These unique properties of tNanoCaP bioinspired cements provide a major improvement over the current calcium phosphate materials ...
Musculoskeletal tissues respond to optimal mechanical signals (e.g., strains) through anabolic adaptations, while mechanical signals above and below optimal levels cause tissue catabolism. If an individuals physical behaviour could be altered to generate optimal mechanical signalling to musculoskeletal tissues, then targeted strengthening and/or repair would be possible. We propose new bioinspired technologies to provide real-time biofeedback of relevant mechanical signals to guide training and rehabilitation. In this review we provide a description of how wearable devices may be used in conjunction with computational rigid-body and continuum models of musculoskeletal tissues to produce real-time estimates of localised tissue stresses and strains. It is proposed that these bioinspired technologies will facilitate a new approach to physical training that promotes tissue strengthening and/or repair through optimal tissue loading.

The Oxy-Iso lenses were invented by Mark Changizi, director of human cognition 2AI Labs. Changizi was interested in why humans evolved color vision that is so good. Unlike other animals, humans and our primate cousins can see reds. A number of scientists over the years proposed early primates were trying to spot ripe red fruits. Changizi hypothesized that the ability developed in order to detect subtle color changes in the skin. Many emotional states - embarrassment or nervousness, for instance - show up in just that way.
