MR compatible apparatus is essential to design new tasks for fMRI study. This paper described the development of an MR compatible manipulandum actuated by the ultrasonic motors, which was able to work within MRI scanner and to perform fMRI task continuously during finger movements. The prototype of manipulandum was able to produce two discriminable force(More)
We have previously proposed a new method of adhesion using the integrated low-level energy sources heat, vibration, and pressure. This adhesion method can be used to attach biological tissue to a metal object. Effects of surface roughness and energy of the metal subject on adhesion performance were studied by using commercially pure titanium (cpTi) and(More)
