Laryngomalacia is a well-recognized cause of airway obstruction and inspiratory stridor in infants. As children grow and become more active, laryngomalacia may manifest in different, unexpected ways. Otherwise healthy athletes may generate enough inspiratory force to draw the aryepiglottic folds into the endolarynx, causing a subtotal glottic obstruction.(More)
Over the past decade, electrocorticography (ECoG) has been used for a wide set of clinical and experimental applications. Recently, there have been efforts in the clinic to adapt traditional ECoG arrays to include smaller recording contacts and spacing. These devices, which may be collectively called "micro-ECoG" arrays, are loosely defined as intercranial(More)
Clinical applications of brain implantable devices for recording and interpreting electrical signals from the cortex have grown rapidly in the last decade. For long-term cortical recording, a micro-electrocorticographic (microECoG) electrode and universal platform were developed and evaluated. The electrode diameters and inter-electrode distances of the new(More)
We present approaches for using thin film polymeric electrode arrays for use in applications of minimally invasive neurological monitoring. The flexibility and unique surface properties of the thin-film polyimide substrate in combination with a compact device platform make them amenable to a variety of surgical implantation procedures. Using a(More)
For applications in cell biology, the ability to produce patterns of adhesion proteins for directing cell patterning is of particular interest. Often though, these patterns require extensive clean room facilities and intricate chrome masks to achieve very small feature sizes. We have developed a modified lift-off method for rapid prototyping of simple PLL(More)
