Recently, transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) is getting an attentions as a promising technique with a capability of noninvasive and nonconvulsive stimulation to treat ill conditions of the brain such as depression. However, knowledge on how exactly tDCS affects the activity of neurons in the brain is still not sufficient. Precise analysis on the(More)
For effective stimulation with tDCS, spatial focality of induced electrical field (EF) is one of the important factors to be considered. Recently, there have been some studies to improve the spatial focality via different types of electrodes and their new configurations: some improvements using ring electrodes were reported over the conventional pad(More)
To establish safe and efficient transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), it is of particular importance to understand the electrical effects of tDCS in the brain. Since the current density (CD) and electric field (EF) in the brain generated by tDCS depend on various factors including complex head geometries and electrical tissue properties, in this(More)
In this paper, we have attempted forearm movement tracking in 3-D by estimating joint angles of a forearm with an inertial measurement unit (IMU) consisting of a tri-axis accelerometer and gyroscope sensors. As the feedback of the forearm motion tracking, we have implemented a 3-D digital forearm model based on the kinematic chain theory utilizing(More)
Osteoporosis is a serious bone disease which leads to the increased risk of bone fractures. For prevention and therapy, early detection of osteoporosis is critical. In general, for diagnosis of osteoporosis, dual-energy X-ray absoptiometry (DXA) or densitometry is most commonly used. However DXA exhibits some disadvantages such as ionizing radiation,(More)
Transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS) is a technique for brain stimulation using rapidly changing magnetic fields generated by coils. It has been established as an effective stimulation technique to treat patients suffering from damaged brain functions. Although TMS is known to be painless and noninvasive, it can also be harmful to the brain by incorrect(More)
