SASDL and RBATQ: Sparse Autoencoder With Swarm Based Deep Learning and Reinforcement Based Q-Learning for EEG Classification 150 150 IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology (OJEMB)

SASDL and RBATQ: Sparse Autoencoder With Swarm Based Deep Learning and Reinforcement Based Q-Learning for EEG Classification

The most vital information about the electrical activities of the brain can be obtained with the help of Electroencephalography (EEG) signals. It is quite a powerful tool to analyze the neural activities of the brain and various neurological disorders like epilepsy, schizophrenia, sleep related disorders, parkinson disease etc. can be investigated well with the help of EEG signals.

Parameter Sensitivity and Experimental Validation for Fractional-Order Dynamical Modeling of Neurovascular Coupling 150 150 IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology (OJEMB)

Parameter Sensitivity and Experimental Validation for Fractional-Order Dynamical Modeling of Neurovascular Coupling

Goal: Modeling neurovascular coupling is very important to understand brain functions, yet challenging due to the complexity of the involved phenomena. An alternative approach was recently proposed where the framework of fractional-order modeling is employed to characterize the complex phenomena underlying the neurovascular. Due to its nonlocal property, a fractional derivative is suitable for modeling delayed and power-law phenomena.

A Multiple Emergency Ventilator as Backup Solution in Pandemic: A Specifically Designed and Dimensioned Device 150 150 IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology (OJEMB)

A Multiple Emergency Ventilator as Backup Solution in Pandemic: A Specifically Designed and Dimensioned Device

Goal: To provide a Multiple Emergency Ventilator (MEV) as backup in case of shortage of ICU ventilators and for use in camp hospitals. Methods: MEV provides the same oxygen mixture and peak inspiratory pressure (PIP) to 10 patients. These specifications were fixed: i) gas supply and plugs to double-limb intubation sets compatible to existing systems; ii) fluid-dynamics with no pressure drop and almost complete patients’ uncoupling; iii) individual monitoring of inspiratory and expiratory pressures and flows and control of their timing; iv) easy stocking, transport, installation with self-supporting pipes.

The ElectroUteroGraph: A Novel Tool for Assessing Uterine Contractions of Non-Pregnant Women 150 150 IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology (OJEMB)

The ElectroUteroGraph: A Novel Tool for Assessing Uterine Contractions of Non-Pregnant Women

Goal: Uterine contractility is known to play significant role in women’s health. Ultrasonography and magnetic resonance imaging have been used for assessing uterine peristalsis, however they lack practicality, objectivity, and cost-effectiveness. In this paper, the ElectroUteroGraph (EUG) and novel electrodes are introduced, to cover the unmet need of practical intrauterine contractility assessment. The EUG measures biopotentials produced by uterine muscle contraction, similar to the basis of electrocardiography.

Continuous Speech for Improved Learning Pathological Voice Disorders 150 150 IEEE Open Journal of Engineering in Medicine and Biology (OJEMB)

Continuous Speech for Improved Learning Pathological Voice Disorders

Goal: Numerous studies had successfully differentiated normal and abnormal voice samples. Nevertheless, further classification had rarely been attempted. This study proposes a novel approach, using continuous Mandarin speech instead of a single vowel, to classify four common voice disorders (i.e. functional dysphonia, neoplasm, phonotrauma, and vocal palsy).
