Sympathetic nerve recordings associated with blood pressure regulation can be recorded directly using microneurography. A general characteristic of this signal is spontaneous burst activity of spikes (action potentials) separated by silent periods against a background of considerable Gaussian noise. During measurement with electrodes, the raw muscle(More)
BACKGROUND Polymerase chain reaction (PCR) is used to detect viruses in the cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) of patients with neurological disease. However, data to assist its use or interpretation are limited. OBJECTIVE We investigated factors possibly influencing viral detection in CSF by PCR, which will also help clinicians interpret positive and negative(More)
[27] , " Robust control of state delayed systems with polytopic type uncertainties via parameter-dependent Lyapunov functionals, " Syst. Abstract—This note presents a noise analysis for an algorithm to identify the uncertain frequency of periodic signals or disturbances. This algorithm is based on the time-varying states of an internal model principle(More)
We employed a novel action potential detection and classification technique to study the relationship between the recruitment of sympathetic action potentials (i.e., neurons) and the size of integrated sympathetic bursts in human muscle sympathetic nerve activity (MSNA). Multifiber postganglionic sympathetic nerve activity from the common fibular nerve was(More)
The paper proposes a paradigm for control design suitable for poorly modeled plants with signiicant dead-time. An adaptive dead-time compensator is developed which is substantially different to the standard Smith predictor, and more generally applicable in practice. A framework is developed for selecting the controller parameters using now s t a n-dard(More)
