An experimental study on the correlation between functional and morphologic recovery of crushed sciatic nerves was carried out in rats. The sciatic nerve of 33 rats, divided into three groups, was submitted to controlled crushing injury on a 5-mm long segment, in a universal testing machine for 10 min with three different loads (100, 500, and 15,000 g,(More)
The use of a devitalized skeletal muscle graft and conventional nerve graft to repair a 5mm long segmentary sciatic nerve lesion was studied in rats by means of functional, morphometric and spinal cord motor neuron cell response evaluation. Thirty-four rats were used and divided into four groups according to the procedure: (1) sham operation; (2)(More)
1 The first author performed the work while a Visiting Scholar at INRS and thanks to Brazilian agency FAPESP for funding. ABSTRACT In this paper, an EEG-based biomarker for automated Alzheimer's disease (AD) diagnosis is described, based on extending a recently-proposed " percentage modulation energy " (PME) metric. More specifically, to improve the(More)
BACKGROUND AND OBJECTIVE Eyes-closed-awake electroencephalogram (EEG) is a useful tool in the diagnosis of Alzheimer's. However, there is eyes-closed-awake EEG with dominant or rare alpha rhythm. In this paper, we show that random selection of EEG epochs disregarding the alpha rhythm will lead to bias concerning EEG-based Alzheimer's Disease diagnosis. (More)
