We investigated the regulation of the Ca(2+)-activated K+ (maxi-K+) channel by angiotensin II (ANG II) and its synthetic analog, [Lys2]ANG II, in freshly dispersed intestinal myocytes. We identified a maxi-K+ channel population in the inside-out patch configuration on the basis of its conductance (257 +/- 4 pS in symmetrical 150 mM KCl solution), voltage… (More)
The paper deals with the mechanical design of a new active stance-control knee-ankle-foot orthosis (SCKAFO). The orthosis is intended to provide gait assistance for incomplete spinal cord injured patients that present functional hip muscles, but partially denervated knee and ankle muscles. It consists of a passive compliant joint that constrains ankle… (More)
This work presents a recognition system for epileptiform abnormalities based on electroencephalogram (EEG) analysis. The proposed system combines a Support Vector Machine classifier automatically trained by an implementation of machine learning approach known as Bag of Words.
