2018 7th IEEE International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics (Biorob)

The RAS/EMBS International Conference on Biomedical Robotics and Biomechatronics - BioRob 2018 - is a joint effort of the two IEEE Societies of Robotics and Automation - RAS - and Engineering in Medicine and Biology - EMBS.BioRob covers both theoretical and experimental challenges posed by the application of robotics and mechatronics in medicine and biology. The primary focus of Biorobotics is to analyze biological systems from a "biomechatronic" point of view, trying to understand the scientific and engineering principles underlying their extraordinary performance. This profound understanding of how biological systems work, behave and interact can be used for two main objectives: to guide the design and fabrication of novel, high performance bio-inspired machines and systems for many different applications; and to develop novel nano, micro-, macro- devices that can act upon, substitute parts of, and assist human beings in prevention, diagnosis, surgery, prosthetics, rehabilitation.

A distributed-parameter model of the myelinated nerve fiber

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'Dept. of Electr. & Comput. Eng., Rice Univ., Houston, TX, USA', u'authorUrl': u'', u'full_name': u'J.A.

Clark', u'id': 37274238200}] Proceedings of the Annual International Conference of the IEEE Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society, 1988

A model is presented that assumes a triaxial cable form, with separate nodal, paranodal, and internodal regions; a myelin sheath independent of the underlying internodal membrane; and a periaxonal conductance pathway. Unlike previous coaxial-cable-equivalent models, this triaxial form allows inclusion of ionic channels in the internodal membrane. The model uses ionic channel dynamics for the mammal and amphibian derived from ...

Influence of the myelin sheath on excitation properties of nerve fibers

The excitation and conduction properties of computer-based cable models of mammalian motor nerve fibers incorporating three different myelin representations were compared. The three myelin representations were a perfectly insulating single cable (model A), a finite impedance single cable (model B), and a finite impedance double cable (model C). Extracellular stimulation of the three models was used to study strength-duration, current- ...

A mathematical model of electromagnetic stimulation of a peripheral nerve axon in a limb is presented. The model predicts the distribution of transmembrane potential along the axon, and the shape of the tissue volume that is stimulated. It is shown that threshold stimulus strength is inversely proportional to the square of the axon diameter.<<ETX>>

A nerve conduction test checks whether the function of a nerve to conduct action potentials is normal or not by measuring compound action potential on the skin. In some neuropathies, a decrease in the thickness of the myelin sheath is observed. This is considered to be a cause of any delay or decay of the conduction of compound action potentials. ...

Registration of diffusion tensor images has attracted more and more attention in recent years. In this paper a novel affine registration algorithm for diffusion tensor (DT) MR images that enables explicit analytic optimization of tensor reorientation is presented. The objective function captures both the image similarity and tensor reorientation, which is necessary for warping DT images. The final optimization method ...
