Sol-Gel Based Electrospray Synthesis of Barium Titanate Nanoparticles
Barium titanate nanoparticles are desirable for a wide range of applications, spanning electronics to biomedicine. Here, we present and electrospray-based method for the synthesis of barium titanate nanomaterials, where their morphology can be altered, forming either particles or rods. Aselectrosprayed...

Shear Waves Reveal Viscoelastic Changes in Skeletal Muscles after Hemispheric Stroke
    We investigated alterations in material properties such as elasticity and viscoelasticity of stroke-affected muscles using ultrasound induced shear waves and mechanical models. We used acoustic radiation force to generate shear waves along fascicles of biceps muscles and measured their propagation... Read more

Development of a Non-Invasive Blink Reflexometer
       Qualitative assessments of the blink reflex are used clinically to assess neurological status in critical care, operating room, and rehabilitative settings. Despite decades of literature supporting the use of quantitative measurements of the blink reflex in the evaluation of multiple... Read more

The Role of Affordable, Point-of-Care Technologies for Cancer Care in Low-and Middle-Income Countries: A Review & Commentary
      As the burden of non-communicable diseases such as cancer continues to rise in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), it is essential to identify and invest in promising solutions for cancer control and treatment. Point-of-care technologies (POCTs) have played critical roles... Read more

Spatially Coherent Activation Maps for Electrocardiographic Imaging
Electrocardiographic imaging (ECGi) is an emerging non-invasive technique that computes unipolar electrograms (EGMs) at the epicardial surface from high-density body-surface ECG recordings and torso anatomy. Activation mapping is an important post-processing step that allows the user to make sense of these... Read more

A Biocompatible Near-Infrared 3D Tracking System
A fundamental challenge in soft-tissue surgery is that target tissue moves and deforms, becomes occluded by blood or other tissue, and is difficult to differentiate from surrounding tissue. To overcome these problems, we developed biocompatible near-infrared fluorescent (NIRF) markers with... Read more

Kinesin-1 Expressed in Insect Cells Improves Microtubule in Vitro Gliding Performance, Long-Term Stability and Guiding Efficiency in Nanostructures
The cytoskeletal motor protein kinesin-1 has been successfully used for many nanotechnological applications. Most commonly, these applications use a gliding assay geometry where substrate-attached motor proteins propel microtubules along the surface. So far, this assay has only been shown to... Read more

Nanoscale Surface Characterization of Human Erythrocytes by Atomic Force Microscopy: A Critical Review
Erythrocytes (red blood cells, RBCs), the most common type of blood cells in humans are well known for their ability in transporting oxygen to the whole body through hemoglobin. Alterations in their membrane skeletal proteins modify shape and mechanical properties... Read more

Hierarchy of Neural Organization in the Embryonic Spinal Cord: Granger-Causality Graph Analysis of In Vivo Calcium Imaging Data
Abstract The recent development of genetically encoded calcium indicators enables monitoring in vivo the activity of neuronal populations. Most analysis of these calcium transients relies on linear regression analysis based on the sensory stimulus applied or the behavior observed. To estimate the basic properties of... Read more
