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 ...
Quantifying information coding limits in sensory systems
Neurons code information about sensory stimuli temporally in the times of occurrence of action potentials as well as spatially in the joint discharge patterns of neurons within an ensemble. In this work, we present a ...
A semi-autonomous mobile robot/teleoperator with applications as an aid for severely handicapped people
A framework for a practical, easy-to-use system which can allow severely handicapped people to control and interact with their home and work environments is presented. Software written for a personal computer allows the ...
A mathematical model of the afferent stage of the mammalian baroreceptor reflex
The purpose of this research effort is to develop a mathematical model of the afferent portion mammalian arterial baroreceptor reflex. The entire model is comprised of a small network of Hodgkin-Huxley (HH) type membrane ...
Point-process modeling of excitatory/inhibitory interactions in LSO neurons
The thesis of this work is that the representation of sensory information in the discharges of single neurons can be characterized by point process models. The work focuses on the encoding of binaural information in the ...
Mechanisms of repolarization and conduction in a mathematical model of electrophysiological responses in the human atrium
We have developed a mathematical model of the human atrial myocyte, based on averaged voltage-clamp data recorded from isolated single myocytes. This formulation can reconstruct action potential data which are representative ...
