Mechanisms of frequency-entrainment in neuromodulated, synaptically driven pacing and bursting cells
The development of quantitative models that describe how neural inputs control the electrophysiological behavior of two cellular oscillators is presented. These cellular oscillators are a spontaneously beating mammalian ...
Issues in myoelectric teleoperation of complex artificial hands
This dissertation introduces a novel method of teleoperation of complex anthropomorphic robotic hands: converting the myoelectric signal generated by an operator's muscles during movement into robot commands replicating ...
An electrodiffusion model of conduction in nerve fibers
A new membrane model for mammalian nerve fibers has been developed. The membrane model utilizes new characterizations for delayed-rectifier currents, and adds an inwardly-rectifying potassium channel as well as a ...
