Thu23January 23, 2020, 10 a.m. - 10:50 a.m.BIOE Special Seminar - Dr. Timothy O'Shea - Bioengineering Neural Repair in the Central Nervous SystemABSTRACT Following traumatic injury to the adult central nervous system (CNS), neural connectivity is lost and fails to spontaneously regrow. This regeneration failure may be due to an intrinsic inability for damaged neurons to regrow in the adult as well as the formati...
Tue28January 28, 2020, 11 a.m.BIOE Seminar - Dr. Robert Kirsch - Reconnecting the Hand and Arm to the Brain (ReHAB): BCI control of upper limb FESABSTRACT We have previously developed an implanted neuroprosthesis that uses functional electrical stimulation (FES) to activate the paralyzed muscles of the shoulder, arm, and hand in a coordinated manner to restore arm and hand function, and successfully deployed this...
Tue4February 4, 2020, 11 a.m.BIOE Seminar - Dr. Megan McClean - Single-Cell Measurement and Control to Unravel Yeast Gene Expression HeterogeneityABSTRACT From microbes to cancer, variability in gene expression can lead to nongenetic phenotypic heterogeneity. This heterogeneity is important in determining how populations of cells grow, survive fluctuating environments, and develop drug resistance. For example, in...
