Recent studies indicate the existence of progenitor cells and their potential for neurogenesis in the subventricular zone (SVZ) and the hippocampus of the normal adult mammalian brain. However, the proliferative response and the specific cell types generated following traumatic brain injury have not been examined. This cellular response to CNS injury was(More)
In this paper, we present a synchronization approach to trajectory tracking of multiple mobile robots while maintaining time-varying formations. The main idea is to control each robot to track its desired trajectory while synchronizing its motion with those of other robots to keep relative kinematics relationships, as required by the formation. First, we(More)
Stem/progenitor cells reside throughout the adult CNS and are actively dividing in the subventricular zone (SVZ) and the dentate gyrus (DG) of the hippocampus. This neurogenic capacity of the SVZ and DG is enhanced following traumatic brain injury (TBI) suggesting that the adult brain has the inherent potential to restore populations lost to injury. This(More)
The hippocampus is particularly vulnerable to traumatic brain injury (TBI), the consequences of which are manifested as learning and memory deficits. Following injury, substantive spontaneous cognitive recovery occurs, suggesting that innate repair mechanisms exist in the brain. However, the underlying mechanism contributing to this is largely unknown. The(More)
It is well known that the cognitive functions of juveniles recover to a greater extent than adult patients following traumatic brain injury (TBI). The exact mechanisms underlying this age-related disparity are unknown; however, we speculate that this improved recovery in juveniles following TBI may be associated with an endogenous neurogenic response in the(More)
In this paper, a model-free cross-coupled controller is proposed for position synchronization of multi-axis motions. The position synchronization error of each axis is defined as the differential position error between this axis and its two adjacent axes, which is then coupled with the position error to form a coupled position error. A PD-type(More)
This paper presents a model identification of a micro air vehicle in loitering flight, based on the input-output data collected from flight experiments on a homemade 1-m-sized aircraft. A miniature flight-control system, which consists of the onboard and the ground sections, is equipped with a multichannel data logger associated with the data acquisition(More)
In this paper, a fully digital motion controller is designed by using a new developed FPGA based ASIC. The FPGA based ASIC has functions of closed current loop control, closed position/velocity loop control, incremental encoder logic, PWM modulation, fault/brake logic, velocity estimator, host communication module, UART module and Delta-Sigma analog to(More)
