Sensorimotor Rhythm Brain-Computer Interface Switch to Operate Assistive Technology

2014-08-27 03:13:54 | BioPortfolio

Summary

The purpose of this research is to develop tools to help people who are paralyzed. These tools are called brain-computer interfaces (BCIs). BCIs would let a person use brain signals to operate technology. The investigators want to make a BCI that can be used to operate commercially available technologies for communication, environmental control or computer access. The BCI would replace a switch to let people operate these technologies without moving. However, the investigators need people to test the BCI so they can see how well it can replace a switch. The investigators want to understand how well it can work so they can make it useful for people who are paralyzed.

Synthetic switch-based baculovirus for transgene expression control and selective killing of hepatocellular carcinoma cells.

Baculovirus (BV) holds promise as a vector for anticancer gene delivery to combat the most common liver cancer-hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). However, in vivo BV administration inevitably results in ...

Ecological Interface Design for Computer Network Defense.

A prototype ecological interface for computer network defense (CND) was developed.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Instrumentation consisting of hardware and software that communicates with the BRAIN. The hardware component of the interface records brain signals, while the software component analyzes the signals and converts them into a command that controls a device or sends a feedback signal to the brain.

Genes that cause the epigenotype (i.e., the interrelated developmental pathways through which the adult organism is realized) to switch to an alternate cell lineage-related pathway. Switch complexes control the expression of normal functional development as well as oncogenic transformation.

The portion of an interactive computer program that issues messages to and receives commands from a user.

Reducing the SURFACE TENSION at a liquid/solid interface by the application of an electric current across the interface thereby enhancing the WETTABILITY of the surface.

A site located in the INTRONS at the 5' end of each constant region segment of a immunoglobulin heavy-chain gene where recombination (or rearrangement) occur during IMMUNOGLOBULIN CLASS SWITCHING. Ig switch regions are found on genes encoding all five classes (IMMUNOGLOBULIN ISOTYPES) of IMMUNOGLOBULIN HEAVY CHAINS.
