In this paper we presented two methods for the modeling of human cortical activity by using combined high-resolution electroencephalography (EEG) and functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) data. These methods were based on linear inverse estimation and used subject’s multi-compartment head model (scalp, skull, dura mater, cortex) constructed from(More)
Typical mathematical modeling of cryopreservation of cell suspensions assumes a thermodynamic equilibrium between the ice and liquid water in the extracellular solution. This work investigates the validity of this assumption by introducing a population balance approach for dynamic extracellular ice formation (EIF) in the absence of any cryo-protectant agent(More)
OBJECTIVES Stem cell therapies based on differentiation of adult or embryonic stem cells into specialized ones appear to be effective for treating several human diseases. This work addresses the mathematical simulation of proliferation kinetics of stem cells. MATERIALS AND METHODS Sheep bone marrow mesenchymal stem cells (phenotype characterized by flow(More)
This study focuses on analysis of in vitro cultures of chondrocytes from ovine articular cartilage. Isolated cells were seeded in Petri dishes, then expanded to confluence and phenotypically characterized by flow cytometry. The sigmoidal temporal profile of total counts was obtained by classic haemocytometry and corresponding cell size distributions were(More)
