OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to evaluate the effects of silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) on the Toll-like receptor 2 (TLR-2) pathway in cultured cells. STUDY DESIGN Human chondrocytes, periodontal ligament (PDL) cells, and SCC-9 cells (squamous cell carcinoma from the tongue) were cultured and subjected to cytotoxicity assays. To evaluate the(More)
A novel, anatomically-accurate model of a tibialis anterior muscle is used to investigate the electro-physiological properties of denervated muscles following functional electrical stimulation. The model includes a state-of-the-art description of cell electro-physiology. The main objective of this work is to develop a computational framework capable of(More)
Surface electrical stimulation of denervated skeletal muscles has been used as a method to induce muscle contraction. However, questions still remain as to how to achieve a desired contraction or how to selectively activate parts of a given skeletal muscle. To begin to address these issues, a detailed biophysically based model, incorporating full fibre(More)
