A remarkable feature of modern silicon electronics is its ability to remain physically invariant, almost indefinitely for practical purposes. Although this characteristic is a hallmark of applications of integrated circuits that exist today, there might be opportunities for systems that offer the opposite behavior, such as implantable devices that function… (More)
A paradigm shift for implantable medical devices lies at the confluence between regenerative medicine, where materials remodel and integrate in the biological milieu, and technology, through the use of recently developed material platforms based on biomaterials and bioresorbable technologies such as optics and electronics. The union of materials and… (More)
Strategies are presented to achieve bendable and stretchable systems of microscale inorganic light-emitting diodes with wireless powering schemes, suitable for use in implantable devices. The results include materials strategies, together with studies of the mechanical, electronic, thermal and radio frequency behaviors both in vitro and in in-vivo animal… (More)
BACKGROUND The prognostic role of the number of resected lymph nodes (nLNs) in pathologic N0 (lymph node negative) and Nx (no lymph node examined) non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC) patients remains uncertain. Guidelines for optimal nLNs have not been established. In the current study, we evaluated whether a higher number of resected lymph nodes (LNs)… (More)
BACKGROUND Dastarcus helophoroides is known as the most valuable natural enemy insect against many large-body longhorned beetles. The molecular mechanism of its long lifespan and reproduction makes it a unique resource for genomic research. However, molecular biological studies on this parasitic beetle are scarce, and genomic information for D.… (More)
Dastarcus helophoroides, which has a relatively longer lifespan compared to other insects, is one of the most effective natural enemies of many large-body long-horned beetles. Methuselah (Mth) is associated with the lifespan, stress resistance, and reproduction in Drosophila melanogaster, but Mth is not present in non-drosophiline insects. A number of… (More)
A formulation of regenerated silk fibroin solution that can be easily functionalized and inkjet printed on numerous surfaces is developed. As an example, the inks can be printed on laboratory gloves that change color when exposed to bacteria.
—This paper studies the problem of stability criteria for neural networks with two additive time-varying delays.A new Lyapunov-Krasovskii function is constructed and some new delay dependent stability criterias are derived in the terms of linear matrix inequalities(LMI), zero equalities and reciprocally convex approach.The several stability criterion… (More)
—This paper studies the problem of asymptotically stability for neural networks with time-varying delays.By establishing a suitable Lyapunov-Krasovskii function and several novel sufficient conditions are obtained to guarantee the asymptotically stability of illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed main results.
