Today's Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) systems have been primarily developed to assist in replacing the abilities lost by patients diagnosed with motor-neuron diseases such as amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS). Of which, the most important ability appears to be communication [1], represented by the volume of research into such applications currently under(More)
OBJECT The authors analyzed their series of carotid endarterectomies (CEAs), which were performed after administration of either a general or regional anesthetic, to determine whether the choice of anesthetic affected patients' clinical outcomes and length of hospital stay. METHODS A series of 803 consecutive CEAs performed between July 1990 and February(More)
The supplementary material summarizes the following complementary fit results: from an area on the surface several mm away from the LSC electrode for three different conditions and for the UHV prepared clean YSZ (100) surface (see Table 1). In Figure 1 the corresponding occupancy profiles are shown. Figure 2 and 3 show the corresponding experimental data 1
Neurovascular compression syndromes (NVC) result from a compression of the entry/exit zone of cranial nerves by a vessel at the surface of the brainstem. Surgical intervention planning (SIP) for NVC enables a comprehensive spatial understanding of the patient specific anatomy. Specifically, brainstem, vessels and nerves are segmented in NVC SIP.
