A study of the motor cortex during the programming, execution and mental representation of voluntary movement is of great relevance; its evaluation in conditions close to reality is necessary, given the close integration of the visuomotor, sensory feedback and proprioceptive systems, as of yet, a functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) scanner allowing(More)
In this work we investigate how the tactile detection thresholds of air-driven actuators are influenced by design parameters as membrane thickness and diameter, when the finger is in contact with the deformable circular elastic membranes. We report lower thresholds with decreasing membrane thickness and increasing diameters. These results can help in the(More)
In this paper, the harmonic beamforming, a technique proposed by the authors to improve the harmonic imaging process in medical echography, is shortly presented. It relies on a modification to the delays used in reception beamforming that allows one to sharply reduce the echoes centered at the fundamental frequency and to keep the echoes centered at the(More)
