Accepted high quality papers will be presented in oral and postersessions, will appear in the Conference Proceedings and will be indexed in PubMed/MEDLINE


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.

Study of conduction in a new model of the myelinated nerve fiber

[{u'author_order': 1, u'affiliation': u'Div. of Restorative Neurol. & Human Neurobiol., Baylor Coll. of Med., Houston, TX, USA', u'full_name': u'J. A. Halter'}, {u'author_order': 2, u'full_name': u'J. W. Clark'}] Images of the Twenty-First Century. Proceedings of the Annual International Engineering in Medicine and Biology Society,, None

A new mathematical model of the myelinated nerve fiber was applied to the study of conduction behavior. This model represents the myelinated nerve fiber as a multiaxial equivalent electric circuit incorporating separate intra- axonal, periaxonal and extra-axonal longitudinal conductive pathways with independent representations of the myelin sheath versus the underlying axolemmal membrane. A detailed anatomical representation of the node is ...


Electromagnetic stimulation of a myelinated axon

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


Influence of the myelin sheath on excitation properties of nerve fibers

No.00CH37143), None

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- ...


Registration of Diffusion Tensor Images Based on Hybrid Optimization Method

Univ., Guangzhou, China', u'full_name': u'Gui-Ping Jiang'}] 2009 3rd International Conference on Bioinformatics and Biomedical Engineering, None

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 ...

The segmentation of the optic nerve fibers is important for the morphometry study of optic nerve. However, such studies are hampered by the thousands of fibers involved when manual segmentation has to be used. We have developed an automatic segmentation method which is principally based on improved Chan-Vese level set model which integrating myelin sheath intensity priority. Next, identify the ...
