Ultrasound Based Planning and Navigation for Non-Anatomical Liver Resections – An Ex-Vivo Study 820 615 IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology (OJEMB)

Non-anatomical resections of liver tumors can be very challenging as the surgeon cannot use anatomical landmarks on the liver surface or in the ultrasound image for guidance. This makes it…

Ultrasound Stimulations Induce Prolonged Depolarization and Fast Action Potentials in Leech Neurons

Author(s): Annarita Cutrone, Nicolo Meneghetti, Arianna Menciassi, Silvestro Micera, Francesca Dedola, Theo Lemaire, Alberto Mazzoni, Francesco Paolo Ulloa Severino, Andrea Cafarelli, Leonardo Ricotti
Ultrasound Stimulations Induce Prolonged Depolarization and Fast Action Potentials in Leech Neurons 800 345 IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology (OJEMB)

Ultrasound (US) stimulation carries the promise of a selective, reversible, and non-invasive modulation of neural activity without the need for genetic manipulation of neural structures. However, the mechanisms of US-induced…
