This paper introduces the MasterFinger developemt and application , a multi-finger haptic interface for virtual object manipulation. This haptic device, with a modular interface, is specially designed to perform collaborative tasks. Each module is in charge of managing the haptic interaction with a finger. The mechanical structure of the module is based on(More)
A 16-day treatment of nonpregnant, ovariectomized rats using 5-mm Silastic implants of estradiol (E), daily injections of 4 mg of progesterone (P), and terminal injections of 5 micrograms/kg of estradiol benzoate (EB) to provide a pregnancy-like pattern of hormone exposure, stimulates (a) home-cage aggression toward unfamiliar intruder rats, (b)(More)
BACKGROUND Ovarian cancer is the most common cause of cancer related death from gynecologic tumors in the United States. The insidious nature of the disease precludes early diagnosis, therefore surgical debulking and chemotherapy are considered as standard treatment modalities for advanced stages. We investigated the effect of the LXR agonist, T0901317, on(More)
Pre-osteoblast adhesion and interaction with extracellular matrix (ECM) proteins through integrin receptors result in activation of signaling pathways regulating osteoblast differentiation. Connective tissue growth factor (CTGF/CCN2) is a matricellular protein secreted into the ECM. Prior studies in various cell types have shown that cell adhesion to CTGF(More)
Acinetobacter baumannii is an important nosocomial pathogen in civilian intensive care units. Recently the incidence has increased in wounded military personnel. Morphine is documented in numerous animal studies to be immunosuppressive and to sensitize to infection. The hypotheses were tested that morphine, administered for analgesia in the battlefield,(More)
This deliverable reports on works that have been carried out in new and available haptic technology. Involved partners have analyzed state-of-the-art and offered new solutions for advanced multi-modal interactions in project scenarios. New technologies being described in this report are: flexible polymer actuators; hand posture identification and force(More)
