  • Stem cells: new hope for the therapy of lethal diseases?

    The supply of donated organs and tissue that are used to treat diseases and disorders is far outnumbered by the need. Recently, there has been a lot of interest in the use of stem cells to treat such disorders, because these cells have a large proliferative potential while they can differentiate into every cell in the body under the appropriate stimuli. Recent reports on applications to Duchenne Muscular Dystrophy and myocardial infarction from the University of Pittsburgh and the University of Dusseldolf have provided some evidence that autologous or homologous stem cell transplantation could one day treat lethal human diseases. In addition to these uses of stem cells, there is research evidence that stem cells can be potentially used to treat spinal cord injury, burns, osteoarthritis, diabetes, Parkinson's and Alzheimer diseases. There are, however, many controversial issues, involving ethics, science, politics, and religion, associated with stem cell research from sacrificed human embryos.

  • Destruction of amyloid fibrils by the plasma pencil

    Summary form only given. Amyloid fibrils are ordered beta-sheet aggregates that are associated with a number of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's and Parkinson's. There are approximately twenty proteins that have been found to form fibrils in humans and are associated with disease states. However, it has been postulated that all proteins can be induced to form this low energy state if subjected to the right conditions. We are investigating potential methods that will lead to the destruction of fibrils, formed by the protein alpha-synuclein, which underlie Parkinson's disease. At present there is no cure for this progressive and debilitating disease. Initial studies by the Greene and Laroussi groups indicate that cold plasma can break these alpha-synuclein fibrils into smaller units in vitro. This avenue of research may facilitate the development of a medical treatment. In this study, the plasma is generated by the plasma pencil, a device capable of emitting a plasma plume several centimeters in length. The plasma pencil is powered by high voltage short pulses (nanoseconds to microseconds) and uses helium as a feed gas. The plasma plume is at room temperature but generates reactive oxygen and nitrogen species (along with charged particles) that interact with the fibrils and ultimately causing their destruction.

  • A 3D Adaptive Wiener Filter for Restoration of SPECT Images Using MRI as Reference Images

    Photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) images suffer from poor resolution and low contrast, which make it difficult for physicians to put an accurate interpretation for diagnosis, in particular, early diagnosis. Although the Wiener filter is a simple and powerful tool to restore degraded images, the requirement for a priori information limits its application. In this paper, we present a new 3D adaptive Wiener filter for restoration of brain SPECT images with a priori data taken from a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) of the same patient. The proposed algorithm automatically and significantly improve the contrast and sharpness of synthetic and real SPECT images while keeping amplification of noise under acceptable level

    This paper deals with the developed researches of biorobotics, as an instrument for the maintenance of the quality of human senses, complete control of the nervous system, activation of neuron circuits, recovery of damaged neuromotor functions, rehabilitation of vocal cords, and neuromotor system control following devastating diseases such as Parkinson's and Alzheimer's. An application of biorobotics is here presented: DDX is an experimental biorobotic system designed to acquire and provide data about human finger movement, applied in the analysis of neural disturbances with quantitative evaluation of both response times and dynamic action of the patient. The goal of the biorobotic system is to measure the response parameters of a person in front of a "soft touch", made by his finger in front of a button. It is now applied in daily clinical activity to diagnose the progression of the Parkinson pathology.

  • New snake algorithm to track neuronal structure in microscopy image

    We present a new method using snake to segment elongated objects in optical microscopy image. Such objects include neuronal dendrites, which play an important role in regulating neurological function and have manifest changes in many neurodegenerative diseases, including Alzheimer's disease and Parkinson's disease. Based on our experience, standard gradient vector flow (GVF) snake has problem to track dendrites. The snake tends to stop too early due to the inhomogeneity of the dendrite signal. In the new method, we introduced an additional external force that aims to restart the region growing process and increase the capture range of the GVF snake. We tested the new method on real neuronal images and obtained better segmentation results. We demonstrate the performance of our method by examples.

  • Computer game environment for assessment of self-initiated behavior and measurement of its neural correlates using fMRI

    A novel computer game environment was designed to assess self-initiated motivated behavior and was used to measure its neural correlates in healthy subjects using functional magnetic resonance imaging. The results show a network of brain regions involved in these processes, including dorsolateral prefrontal, medial prefrontal and posterior parietal cortices. Our paradigm could potentially be used as a basis for assessment and rehabilitation method of self-initiated behavior and apathy.

  • Two-dimensional Axisymmetric Model for the Sensitivity Analysis of a Chronic Drug Infusion into the Brain

    A 64-run, 2-level partial factorial experimental analysis was conducted on a 2D axisymmetric finite-element model of the convection-enhanced drug delivery to the parenchyma of the brain. The purpose of this ANOVA analysis was to determine the relative importance of eight factors and their interaction in the volume of distribution for the drug. The analysis revealed that the infusion flowrate and concentration, the overall half-life of the drug and the in vivo effective concentration played an overwhelmingly dominant role in the drug distribution. The results of this analysis will guide the design of an appropriate drug delivery device by focusing research resources on the determined factors of most importance

  • A Hippocampus CA3 Model with Autoassociative and Heteroassociative Memory Functions

    Hippocampus is one of brain areas which are related with some neurological diseases relating with memory such as Alzheimer and Parkinson. To understand pathogenesis of these diseases requires the development of detailed models of hippocampus function. The CA3 region is one of the most important regions of hippocampus to form associative memory. In this paper, a detailed model of hippocampus CA3 function was developed according to the structure of the CA3 region. The hippocampus CA3 functional model is a three-layered Hopfield-like neural network with 250 Izhikevich artificial neurons as its spiking neurons. The model is simulated under MATLAB platform and the results show that: the third layer has heteroassociative memory function; the first and the second layer can implement autoassociative memory.

  • Diagnostic Implications of EEG Analysis in Patients with Dementia

    New methods of electroencephalogram (EEG) analysis show promise in differentiating among types of dementia. While these measures alone are useful, their diagnostic contribution increases when combined with clinical parameters using higher order decision models such as neural network models and hybrid systems. Three categories of patients are included in the current study, Alzheimer's patients (AD), minimal cognitive impairment (MCI), and normal controls. Results show that patients can be categorized accurately using the combination of EEG synchronization results and selected clinical parameters
