The development of neural cuff-electrodes requires several in vivo studies and revisions of the electrode design before the electrode is completely adapted to its target nerve. It is therefore favorable to simulate many of the steps involved in this process to reduce costs and animal testing. As the restoration of motor function is one of the most(More)
For imaging purposes of the spine, segmented image data provides the basis for a variety of modern clinical applications. However, the anatomical complex structure of the spine as well as the extensive degenerative bony deformations apparent in the clinical situation, generally complicate the application of a fully automated segmentation. To serve the(More)
Emerging research on brain-machine interfaces (BMIs) requires the development of animal models for testing implantable BMI electrodes. New models are necessary in order to characterize and test newly constructed electrodes in an acute environment, and their properties and performance need to be evaluated in long-term, chronic implantations. Owing to their(More)
OBJECTIVE The duration of preexisting profound deafness in patients with bilateral retrocochlear lesions is known to correlate negatively to the extent of auditory restoration after auditory brainstem implantation. There is, therefore, a lack of information regarding the potential of the central auditory system to mediate hearing perception after long-term(More)
The spinal cord of the rat has become a widely used model for biodynamic, pharmaceutical and neurological experiments. However, no standard procedure to approach the spinal cord in rats has been published in detail. We present a description of a dorsal approach to the spine, spinal canal and myelon of the rat. This approach provides sufficient exposure of(More)
