This study investigated the use of surface electromyography (EMG) combined with pattern recognition (PR) to identify user locomotion modes. Due to the nonstationary characteristics of leg EMG signals during locomotion, a new phase-dependent EMG PR strategy was proposed for classifying the user's locomotion modes. The variables of the system were studied for(More)
Tuberous sclerosis complex is a dominant disorder that leads to the development of benign tumors in multiple organs. We have isolated a mutation in the Drosophila homolog of TSC1 (Tsc1). Cells mutant for Tsc1 are dramatically increased in size yet differentiate normally. Organ size is also increased in tissues that contain a majority of mutant cells. Clones(More)
The original use of biofeedback to train single muscle activity in static positions or movement unrelated to function did not correlate well to motor function improvements in patients with central nervous system injuries. The concept of task-oriented repetitive training suggests that biofeedback therapy should be delivered during functionally related(More)
The newly developed transcription activator-like effector protein (TALE) and clustered regularly interspaced short palindromic repeats/Cas9 transcription factors (TF) offered a powerful and precise approach for modulating gene expression. In this article, we systematically investigated the potential of these new tools in activating the stringently silenced(More)
In this Letter, by utilizing the Lyapunov functional method, applying M-matrix and topological degree theory, we analyze the global exponential stability and the existence of periodic solutions of a class of recurrent neural networks with delays. Some simple and new sufficient conditions ensuring existence, uniqueness and global exponential stability of the(More)
The synchronization problem is studied in this paper for nonidentical chaotic neural networks with time delays, where the mismatched parameters are taken into account. An integral sliding mode control approach is proposed to address it. As a first step, a proper sliding surface is constructed. Based on the drive-response concept and Lyapunov stability(More)
Plankton form the base of the food chain in the ocean and are fundamental to marine ecosystem dynamics. The rapid mapping of plankton abundance together with taxonomic and size composition is very important for ocean environmental research, but difficult or impossible to accomplish using traditional techniques. In this paper, we present a new pattern(More)
