Summary of "Continuous 2-D control via state-machine triggered by endogenous sensory discrimination and a fast brain switch."

Brain computer interfacing (BCI) is a promising method to control assistive systems for patients with severe disabilities. However, only a small number of commands (2 to 3) can be discriminated from EEG signals. Recently, we have presented a novel BCI approach that combines an electrotactile menu and a brain switch, which allows the user to trigger many commands robustly and efficiently. However, the commands are timed to periodic tactile cues and this may challenge online control. In the present study, therefore, we implemented and evaluated a novel approach for online closed-loop control using the proposed BCI.

Distributed Edge-Based Event-Triggered Formation Control.

This paper considers the formation control problem for general linear networked agents constrained with event-triggered communications. We propose four kinds of edge-based event-triggered protocols, e...

Mechanisms of Sensory Discrimination: Insights from Drosophila Olfaction.

All an animal can do to infer the state of its environment is to observe the sensory-evoked activity of its own neurons. These inferences about the presence, quality, or similarity of objects are prob...

Assessing plantar sensation in the foot using the FOot Roughness Discrimination Test (FoRDT™): a reliability and validity study in stroke.

The foot sole represents a sensory dynamometric map and is essential for balance and gait control. Sensory impairments are common, yet often difficult to quantify in neurological conditions, particula...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Apparatus that provides mechanical circulatory support during open-heart surgery, by passing the heart to facilitate surgery on the organ. The basic function of the machine is to oxygenate the body's venous supply of blood and then pump it back into the arterial system. The machine also provides intracardiac suction, filtration, and temperature control. Some of the more important components of these machines include pumps, oxygenators, temperature regulators, and filters. (UMDNS, 1999)

An autosomal recessive condition characterized by recurrent myoclonic and generalized seizures, ATAXIA, slowly progressive intellectual deterioration, dysarthria, and intention tremor. Myoclonic seizures are severe and continuous, and tend to be triggered by movement, stress, and sensory stimuli. The age of onset is between 8 and 13 years, and the condition is relatively frequent in the Baltic region, especially Finland. (From Menkes, Textbook of Child Neurology, 5th ed, pp109-110)

The sensory discrimination of a pattern shape or outline.

A system in which the functions of the man and the machine are interrelated and necessary for the operation of the system.

A MACHINE LEARNING paradigm used to make predictions about future instances based on a given set of unlabeled paired input-output training (sample) data.
