Recent technological advancements in the field of neural recording and decoding have changed the landscape of neural prostheses. However, a lack of biocompatible electrodes for long-term neural recording resulting in loss of electrode functionality is currently a major limiting factor for...
An Investigation into Neural Tissue-Electrode Contact as a Performance Impairing Factor in Flexible, Micro-Electrocorticographic Probes Meant for Brain-Computer InterfacingDownload
The on-going development of micro- and nano-fabrication methods is facilitating interest and investigation into neural probes and implants for use as neurosurgical diagnostic tools and brain-computer interfaces (BCI). Key to the development of all neural probes, from invasive to non-invasive, is...
Development and analysis of responsive polymers as sensing elements for storage conditions and freshness of foodDownload
As the global population growth continues to increase the needs for higher production of food, governments, organizations, and individuals are faced with the task to implement strategies to mitigate the impact that food waste has in food security, the economy and the environment. One of the...
Development of Surrogate Spinal Cords for the Evaluation of Electrode Arrays Used in Intraspinal ImplantsDownload
A surrogate spinal cord was developed to test the mechanical stability of electrode arrays for intraspinal implants. The mechanical and surface properties of candidate materials were tested. The elastic modulus was characterized using dynamic mechanical analysis. Forces required to indent the...
Microfluidic fuel cell (MFC) devices are a promising route towards on-chip power generation for microfluidic and lab-on-a-chip systems. Current MFCs leverage fabrication techniques and materials that have been inherited from micromachining technology and macro-scale fuel cell devices. Both,...
Modification of Thermal and Mechanical Properties of Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) through Addition of Bio-based Plasticizing Materials and Additive Manufacturing ProcessingDownload
The non-degradable polymers currently used for commercial production and application may be inexpensive; however, their excessive use is leading to unprecedented amounts of plastic waste and extensive environmental damage. The demand for biologically-derived, biodegradable polymers is therefore...
Physiological and genomic characterization of six virulent bacteriophages of Shiga toxin-producing Escherichia coli O157:H7 for biocontrol and detection applicationsDownload
Despite multiple control strategies in all steps of the food production chain, outbreaks of foodborne pathogens are common worldwide. More effective ways to prevent, eliminate or at least detect their presence before products reach consumers are of great interest to the general public, the food...
Stimulus response materials are a class of novel materials that are currently being explored in various technologies, including biomedical devices and components, food packaging, fabrics, energy harvesting and conversion, and other elementary components such as sensors and actuators. Hybrid...
Enzyme-responsive degradable polymers are of great interest both from fundamental science and real-world application perspectives. Enzyme-responsive polymers, because of their ability to interface with and sense biological processes, can have many applications in systems that operate at the edge...
