  • A 4+1 architecture for in vivo electrophysiology visual prosthesis 

    Barriga-Rivera, Alejandro; Eiber, Calvin D.; Matteucci, Paul B.; Chen, Spencer C.; Morley, John W.; Lovell, Nigel H.; Suaning, Gregg J. (Càtedra d'Accessibilitat (CATAC), 2016)
    Article
    Open Access
    Researchers around the globe are working towards restoring vision to the blind through the development of a visual neuroprosthesis. Overcoming physical, technical and biological limitations represents one of the main ...
  • Biological tissue characterization by magnetic induction spectroscopy (MIS): requirements and limitations 

    Scharfetter, Hermann; Casañas Bueno, Roberto; Rosell Ferrer, Francisco Javier (IEEE-INST ELECTRICAL ELECTRONICS ENGINEERS INC, 2003-07-31)
    Article
    Open Access
    Magnetic induction spectroscopy (MIS) aims at the contactless measurement of the passive electrical properties (PEP) σ, ε, and μ of biological tissues via magnetic fields at multiple frequencies. Whereas previous publications ...
  • Breaking of the excitatory-inhibitory balance in neural networks 

    Pericas Iturriagagoitia, Cristina (Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya, 2016-07-04)
    Bachelor thesis
    Open Access
    Covenantee:  New York University
    Experimental and theoretical study of membrane potentials of neurons in culture provide evidence of some of the mechanisms responsible for excitatory-inhibitory imbalance.
  • Effects of small conductance calcium activated potassium channels in atrial myocytes 

    Peñaranda Ayllón, Angelina; Echebarría Domínguez, Blas; Álvarez Lacalle, Enrique; Rodríguez Cantalapiedra, Inma (IEEE Computer Society Conference Publishing Services (CPS), 2017)
    Conference lecture
    Open Access
    Among the different potassium channels present in cardiac myocytes, the small conductance Ca2+ activated potassium channels (SK channels) are particular because they are affected by changes in intracellular calcium. The ...
