Effect of the Synchronization-Based Control of a Wearable Robot Having a Non-Exoskeletal Structure on the Hemiplegic Gait of Stroke Patients
We have been developing the robotic wear curara as both a welfare device and rehabilitation robot that assists the elderly and disabled. curara is aimed at user friendliness. We have, thus, chosen a non-exoskeleton structure made of a plastic so that the robot is as light in weight as possible and to minimize the restraining stress against natural human movement.
Highly Efficient Compression Algorithms for Multichannel EEG
The difficulty associated with processing and understanding the high dimensionality of electroencephalogram (EEG) data requires developing efficient and robust compression algorithms.
Modeling and Characterization of Capacitive Elements With Tissue as Dielectric Material for Wireless Powering of Neural Implants
This paper reports on the modeling and characterization of capacitive elements with tissue as the dielectric material, representing the core building block of a capacitive link for wireless power transfer to neural implants.
Call for Papers: Special Issue on Neural Systems Engineering and Mathematical Modelling of Brain dynamics using ECoG/EEG/MEG oscillations and Machine learning methods
In this special issue, Guest Editor Steve Mehrkanoon, PhD, welcomes papers that address many of the challenges of mathematical and computational models of the brain networks and dynamics given the measurement data ECoG/EEG/MEG. Submission deadline: May 31, 2018.
Synthesis of Subject-Specific Human Balance Responses Using a Task-Level Neuromuscular Control Platform
Many activities of daily living require a high level of neuromuscular coordination and balance control to avoid falls. Complex musculoskeletal models paired with detailed neuromuscular simulations complement experimental studies and uncover principles of coordinated and uncoordinated movements.
Functional Connectivity Analysis of Mental Fatigue Reveals Different Network Topological Alterations Between Driving and Vigilance Tasks
Despite the apparent importance of mental fatigue detection, a reliable application is hindered due to the incomprehensive understanding of the neural mechanisms of mental fatigue.
