Independent hydraulic positioning for an implantable multi-electrode array

Takashi Sato; Takafumi Suzuki; Kunihiko Mabuchi 2007 3rd International IEEE/EMBS Conference on Neural Engineering, 2007

We report on a new hydraulic drive system for a microdrive, which enables the recording of multi-unit activity of waking animals. Our principal motivation for inventing this device was to simplify the task of positioning electrodes, which consumes a considerable amount of time and requires a high level of skill.

Prediction of potentially unstable electrical activity during embryonic development of rodent ventricular myocytes

Chikako Okubo; Hitomi Sano; Yasuhiro Naito; Masaru Tomita 2012 Computing in Cardiology, 2012

In order to evaluate developmental changes in embryonic ventricular cells at early embryonic (EE) and late embryonic (LE) stage, we aimed to predict potentially unstable action potentials (APs) that could be lethal to developing ventricular cells. Two models of the Kyoto and the Luo-Rudy model were used for simulation of 512 representative combinations by switching the relative activities of 9 ...


Body temperature control circuit

Admir Horta; Eric Gernux; Matt Couceiro; Dieter Haemmerich; Mohamed Almekkawy 2016 IEEE 7th Annual Ubiquitous Computing, Electronics & Mobile Communication Conference (UEMCON), 2016

There is currently no animal model available that allows chronic control of body temperature, e.g. to study the effects of body temperature on disease. Prior studies have shown that by heating the preoptic area (POA) of the hypothalamus of rodents with a heated water-perfused probe the body temperature can be lowered, but this method is not feasible for chronic use. ...

  • A biomimetic whisker for texture discrimination and distance estimation

    Rodents use their whiskers (vibrissae) for tactile perception, specifically for texture discrimination and shape recognition. In this paper, we present an artificial whisker system biologically inspired by rodent whiskers. We first focus on the question, how the natural frequencies of the whisker bar affect the processing of tactile signals. For texture discrimination it is shown that separating the range of the tactile signals from the natural frequencies improves the classification quality. In contrast, natural frequencies prove to be a source of information for distance estimation. It is also demonstrated that the time course of deflection angles or deflection velocities can determine the distance of objects.

  • Cortico-Hippocampal Maps and Navigation Strategies in Robots and Rodents

    A biologically inspired integrated model of different hippocampal subsystems makes a distinction between place cells (PC) within entorhinal cortex (diffuse) or dentate gyrus (segregated), and transition cells (TC) in CA3-CA1 that encode transitions between events. These two types of codes support two kinds of hippocampo-cortical cognitive maps: -A context-independent map in subiculum and EC encodes essentially the spatial layout of the environment thanks to a local dominance of ideothetic movement-related information over allothetic (visual) information; -A task-andtemporal- context dependent map based on the TCs in CA3-CA1 allows encoding, in higher order structures, maps as graphs resulting from coinbination of learned sequences of events. The dominantly spatial and the temporal-task-dependent maps are permanently stored in parietal cortex and prefrontal cortex respectively. On the basis of these two maps two distinct goal-oriented navigation strategies were designed in experimental robotic paradigms: -one based on a (population) vector code of the location-actions pairs to iearn and implement to reach the goal; another based on linking TCs together as conditioning chains that will be implemented under the topdown guidance of drives and motivations

  • Simulating Whisker Sensors — on the Role of Material Properties for Morphology, Behavior and Evolution

    Whiskers have recently received an increasing interest as touch sensors capable of providing rich information about the close environment of an agent. Many different animal species - especially rodents - heavily rely on them for tasks as varied as short-range navigation and object exploration. For roboticists, whiskers are not only interesting because of the unique physical process on which they are based (which is e.g. independent of illumination - a non trivial problem that vision-based modalities have to deal with), but also because of the potential overlap with other sensory modalities. Although there is a considerable body of literature about whiskers, some questions remain unanswered. For example: is there any appropriate morphological arrangement of the whiskers for a given task, since this arrangement is highly preserved within many animal species? What are the advantages of using flexible touch sensors rather than rigid ones? In this paper, we present a software that we have developed for the simulation and investigation of agents using whisker sensors. As an illustration of possible applications with this tool, we then present some results about the implications of the material properties of the whiskers on morphology, behavior and evolution.

  • The Contribution of Quantitative Models to the Long Distance Orientation Problems

    Examples of simulation models applied to the long distance orientation of rodents, bees, salmon and pigeons are reviewed. In each case the models provide new insights which are contradictory to the current map hypothesis. Salmon and rodent performances are assumed to be consistent with a random process. Bees supposedly use non cognitive processes to perform map-like orientation procedures, and pigeons' homing is found to involve mainly stochastic processes. The efficiency of the simulated models as well as the fact that they point to hitherto underestimated aspects of orientation make them useful new tools for solving spatial problems.

  • Neural Bases of Actions and Habits

    Considerable evidence suggests that the behavioral mechanisms for instrumental action selection are mediated by two distinct learning processes: a goal- directed process whereby actions are selected with reference to the incentive value and causal relationship between actions and associated outcomes, and a more reflexive habitual process in which actions are elicited by antecedent stimuli without any consideration of the associated outcome. This chapter reviews evidence from experiments in both rodents and humans which suggests that the behavioral dichotomy between these two modes of action selection are also reflected at the neural level, involving at least partly dissociable regions: a circuit involving the medial prefrontal cortex and dorsomedial striatum is implicated in goal-directed learning, whereas a region of posterior lateral dorsal striatum is implicated in habitual learning. Building on the arguments put forward by Winstanley et al. (this volume), it can be concluded that the specific neural circuits identified as contributing to goal-directed learning, but not those involved in habit learning, are a constituent element of the neural systems underlying cognitive search.
