Retinal Ganglion Cells Do Not Extend Axons by Default Promotion by Neurotrophic Signaling and Electrical Activity
We investigate the signaling mechanisms that induce retinal ganglion cell (RGC) axon elongation by asking whether surviving neurons extend axons by default. We show that bcl-2 overexpression isExpand

Silicon fusion bonding and deep reactive ion etching: a new technology for microstructures
Abstract New developments in deep reactive ion etching (DRIE) technology, when combined with silicon fusion bonding (SFB), make it possible, for the first time, to span nearly the entire range ofExpand

A traction stress sensor array for use in high-resolution robotic tactile imaging
A high resolution large-area array capable of resolving the three independent components of a 2D triaxial contact stress profile has been developed. The array, composed of 4096 (64/spl times/64)Expand

Electronic sensors with living cellular components
For more than three decades, it has been possible to use microlithographically fabricated extracellular electrodes to record action potential (AP) signals from electrically active cells such as neurons of intact organisms. Expand

Robust ballistocardiogram acquisition for home monitoring.
The ballistocardiogram (BCG) measures the reaction of the body to cardiac ejection forces, and is an effective, non-invasive means of evaluating cardiovascular function. A simple, robust method isExpand
