The inherent limitations of genetic analysis in humans and other mammals as well as striking conservation of most genes controlling nervous system functioning in flies and mammals made Drosophila an attractive model to investigate various aspects of brain diseases. Since RNA research has made great progress in recent years here we present an overview of(More)
Protein aggregation is a hallmark of many neurodegenerative diseases. RNA chaperones have been suggested to play a role in protein misfolding and aggregation. Noncoding, highly structured RNA recently has been demonstrated to facilitate transformation of recombinant and cellular prion protein into proteinase K-resistant, congophilic, insoluble aggregates(More)
The paper presents the design phase of the actuators control system development for a morphing wing application. Some smart materials, like Shape Memory Alloy (SMA), are used as actuators to modify the upper surface of the wing made of a flexible skin. The actuations lines control is designed and validated using a numerical simulation model developed in(More)
The paper represents the second part of a study related to the development of an actuators control system for a morphing wing application, and describes the experimental validation of the control designed in the first part. After a short presentation of the finally adopted control architecture, the physical implementation of the control is done. To(More)
In this paper, wind tunnel results of a real time optimization of a morphing wing in wind tunnel for delaying the transition towards the trailing edge are presented. A morphing rectangular finite aspect ratio wing, having a wind tunnel experimental airfoil reference cross-section, was considered with its upper surface made of a flexible composite material(More)
