Glossokinetic potential based tongue –machine ınterface for 1-D extraction using neural networks

This study may serve disabled people to control assistive devices in natural, unobtrusive, speedy and reliable manner. Moreover, it is expected that GKP-based TMI could be a collaboration channel for traditional electroencephalography (EEG)-based brain computer interfaces which have significant inadequacies arisen from the EEG signals.

Authors: Tao XZ, Jing L, Li JH Abstract OBJECTIVE: To investigate the clinical efficacy and safety of transforaminal endoscopic spine system (TESSYS) in treating the prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc. PATIENTS AND METHODS: 462 patients with prolapse of lumbar intervertebral disc who were treated in our hospital from June 2012 to May 2016 were enrolled. All patients were randomly divided into 2 groups: the study group (n=231) and the control group (n=231). Patients in the study group received TESSYS, while those in the control group received conventional surgical treatment with posterior approach. Venous bl...

In this study, we aimed to compare the clinical efficacy of PKP and PVP in the treatment of osteoporotic thoracolumbar vertebral compression fractures. PATIENTS AND METHODS: One hundred and sixty-one patients with single-stage osteoporotic vertebral compression fracture in thoracolumbar were enrolled and divided into two groups, percutaneous balloon kyphoplasty (PKP group) and percutaneous vertebroplasty (PVP group). The subjects were selected from patients who were once treated in our hospital from January 2012 to December 2015. There were 91 cases in PKP group and 70 cases in PVP group. The hospitalization time, oper...

Conclusions and ImplicationsThe results of this analysis suggest that while children diagnosed with CP and with access to stored CB differ from a broader population sample in terms of demographics, they have similar clinical severity and comorbidity profiles. As such, LUSTRE may serve as a valuable source of data for the characterization of individuals with CP, including individuals who have or will receive CB infusions.

Conclusion Dyslexia is probably the result of deficits in the brain at multiple levels. There is an impaired phoneme discrimination resulting in difficulty in understanding spelling. Visual perceptual impairment leads to further worsening of word recognition, and phonological awareness impairment causes speech disturbances. In the center of all this is delayed temporal processing. The end result is delayed speech development, difficulties in reading and comprehending texts, and poor academic performance. What Makes a Dyslexic a Successful Person? From Leonardo da Vinci to Einstein, children with learning disabilities prove...

(Frontiers) Neurologists have created a hands-free, thought-controlled musical instrument, which they've recently described in a report in Frontiers in Human Neuroscience. Researchers hope that this new instrument will help empower and rehabilitate patients with motor disabilities such as those from stroke, spinal cord injury, amputation, or amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS).

We reported recently that stimulation of serotonin 1A (5-HT1A) receptors on astrocytes promoted astrocyte proliferation and upregulated antioxidative molecules to act as a neuroprotectant in parkinsonian mice. PD is a progressive neurodegenerative disease with motor symptoms such as tremor, bradykinesia, rigidity and postural instability, that are based on selective loss of nigrostriatal dopaminergic neurons, and with non-motor symptoms such as orthostatic hypotension and constipation based on peripheral neurodegeneration. Although dopaminergic therapy for managing the motor disability associated with PD is being assessed ...
