Probing the Control Processes of the Motor System

IEEE Transactions on Instrumentation and Measurement, 2010

Robot-assisted rehabilitation is often found to help in recovery, but its use is often experimental or limited to clinical trials. This paradox is partly explained by the difficulty in bridging the gap between the score on a robot- assisted exercise and the control processes that mediate the measured performance. Building upon recent computational model of motor control, this paper highlights ...

In the case of epilepsy, this can manifest itself in the form of uncontrolled synchronous activity often in the form of bursting. Pattern steering is the ability to apply stimulation to a network that effectively changes its dynamical firing pattern. In an epileptic network, the stimulation would be used to move ...

  • Probing the Control Processes of the Motor System

    Robot-assisted rehabilitation is often found to help in recovery, but its use is often experimental or limited to clinical trials. This paradox is partly explained by the difficulty in bridging the gap between the score on a robot- assisted exercise and the control processes that mediate the measured performance. Building upon recent computational model of motor control, this paper highlights the potential benefits of a multitask approach for evaluating sensorimotor control processes. The approach is illustrated with the results from normal and pathological sensorimotor behavior in humans.

The sensor can also monitor the molecule's interaction with the protein Set7 in real-time. The biosensor is made by coating a 50-nm-thick gold film over an 18$^\circ$tilted fiber Bragg grating. A spectrally-dense comb of backward-propagating cladding resonance modes with Q-factor as high as 10$^4$is excited due to the tilted grating. The spectral overlap between the excited cladding modes and the broader absorption feature of the surface plasmon makes this device a unique tool for high accuracy measurement of small shifts of plasmon resonance wavelength. Surface biomolecular functionalization of the gold film enables us to not only detect the corresponding biomolecule but also study its interaction with other biomolecules. Our experimental results demonstrate that our biosensor can detect AdoHcy at concentration as low as 1 nM. Furthermore, we have successfully real-time monitored interaction between the protein Set7 and AdoHcy at different concentrations. Our measurements are consistent with the biological theory that the association rate of a pair of biomolecules depends on their concentrations.

  • Dynamic steering of in vitro cortical neurons using field stimulation

    Neurological disorders are often characterized by abnormal neuronal activity. In the case of epilepsy, this can manifest itself in the form of uncontrolled synchronous activity often in the form of bursting. Pattern steering is the ability to apply stimulation to a network that effectively changes its dynamical firing pattern. In an epileptic network, the stimulation would be used to move the seizing network from its abnormal state to a normal state. This idea is explored here in cultured networks of cortical neurons plated on microelectrode arrays. Stimulation was applied to the bath resulting in an electric field generated throughout the network. This field was verified as sub-threshold in strength using a finite element model simulation. Stimulated networks showed a significant suppression in the number of bursts and increase in the interburst interval as compared to control networks. This observed burst suppression suggests that the sub-threshold stimulating field moved networks from a state of high frequency bursting to a state of low frequency bursting.

  • Conveying virtual tactile feedback via augmented kinesthetic stimulation

    In real object manipulation, the deformation of the fingerpads along the contact surfaces provides local information about the geometry of the object the subject is manipulating, even in absence of vision and any exploratory movement. In virtual reality with haptic feedback this kind of stimulation is not available because the haptic devices currently available allow to simulate a contact point force interaction thus preventing the deformation of the fingerpads. The aim of this work is that of proposing a novel contact model to augment the information conveyed during kinesthetic interaction with single- point haptic devices. We extended the classic god-point algorithm by using a pseudo-ellipsoidal force field that creates anisotropic compliance in the neighborhood of the contact point. We performed several experiments in order to verify that such contact model can provide information about contact surface orientation even in absence of vision and of free voluntary exploration. The main finding was that participants could identify the orientation of the contact surface when the compliance was maximum in the tangential plane by using small exploratory movements allowed by the penalty- based contact model.

  • Effects of carbon nanotube and conducting polymer coated microelectrodes on single-unit recordings in vitro

    Neuronal networks cultured on microelectrode arrays (MEAs) have been utilized as biosensors that can detect all or nothing extracellular action potentials, or spikes. Coating the microelectrodes with carbon nanotubes (CNTs), either pristine or conjugated with a conductive polymer, has been previously reported to improve extracellular recordings presumably via reduction in microelectrode impedance. The goal of this work was to examine the basis of such improvement in vitro. Every other microelectrode of in vitro MEAs was electrochemically modified with either conducting polymer, poly-3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene (PEDOT) or a blend of CNT and PEDOT. Mouse cortical tissue was dissociated and cultured on the MEAs to form functional neuronal networks. The performance of the modified and unmodified microelectrodes was evaluated by activity measures such as spike rate, spike amplitude, burst duration and burst rate. We observed that the yield, defined as percentage of microelectrodes with neuronal activity, was significantly higher by 55% for modified microelectrodes compared to the unmodified sites. However, the spike rate and burst parameters were similar for modified and unmodified microelectrodes suggesting that neuronal networks were not physiologically altered by presence of PEDOT or PEDOT-CNT. Our observations from immunocytochemistry indicated that neuronal cells were more abundant in proximity to modified microelectrodes.

  • A Loop-Shaped Flexible Mechanism for Robotic Needle Steering

    The ability to steer a needle around delicate or bony structures during needle insertion for targeting tumors is promising from the viewpoint of improving the effectiveness of needle insertion. In this letter, a novel flexible mechanism called “Active Sheath” is proposed for realizing shape-controllable cannulas by using only two flexible elements. Then, a steerable needle with an outer diameter of 1.3 mm and a conical tip is presented based on the proposed mechanism. In addition, a robotic manipulator is presented to control the proposed needle precisely to the right and left by using only one translational joint. Based on numerical simulations of Active Sheath using the finite-element method, a dual parallel curve model with constant curvature is developed to describe the Active Sheath system. In the experiments, the curving response of the needle to the various inputs is assessed and the results are compared with those obtained using the kinematic model. Moreover, the shapes of the controlled needles inserted into an agar phantom are investigated and compared with those of a stainless steel bevel-tip needle and a beta-titanium flexible bevel-tip needle. The prototype steerable needle with a conical tip can bend a lateral distance of approximately 91% of that of the beta-titanium flexible bevel-tip needle in 100-mm insertion trials. The proposed flexible mechanism and the steerable needle prototype have the potential to create curved paths through shape-control commands during needle insertion.
