In this paper, classification of Juvenile Myoclonic Epilepsy (JME) patients and healthy volunteers included into Normal Control (NC) groups was established using Feed-Forward Neural Networks (NN), Support Vector Machines (SVM), Decision Trees (DT), and Naïve Bayes (NB) methods by utilizing the data obtained through the scanning EMG method used in a clinical(More)
Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy is a genetically inherited disorder characterized by myoclonic jerks and generalized seizures. It has been proposed that patients with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy have larger motor units (MUs) than normals by MU number estimation and macro electromyography techniques. In this study, an experimental setup for scanning(More)
Laser biostimulation in medicine has become widespread supporting the idea of therapeutic effects of photobiomodulation in biological tissues. The aim of this study was to investigate the biostimulation effect of laser irradiation on healing of cutaneous skin wounds, in vivo, by means of bioimpedance measurements and histological examinations. Cutaneous(More)
The suppression of transient evoked otoacoustic emissions (TEOAEs) by continuous ipsilateral noise masking was investigated to explore the feasibility of its use in the elimination of the acoustical stimulus artifact. A reference noise template was obtained by stimulating the ear with identically reproducible digitally synthesized broadband noise. The same(More)
Chemical alterations of red blood cells (RBCs) during storage eventually affect the electrical properties of blood. In this study, the physiological parameters such as extracellular (SAGM + CPD + residual plasma) Na(+), K(+), Cl(-), pH, 2,3-DPG and ATP together with the Cole-Cole parameters were measured using erythrocyte suspensions from 51 male donors (31(More)
Impedance spectroscopy of blood with and without anticoagulants (Acid Citrate Dextrose (ACD), Ethylene Diamine Tetra-acetic Acid (EDTA) and Lithium Heparin (LH)), taken from healthy donors, ages 24-33, are performed in the frequency range 100 kHz-1MHz, using the two electrode impedance measurement method. High frequency data are used in fitting the Cole(More)
Otoacoustic emissions (OAE) are non-stationary signals that vary in time depending on the characteristics of the stimulus. Traditional spectral analysis using Fourier methods ignores the effects of time and can miss important temporal information. Therefore, a better form of spectral analysis requires the use of time-frequency distribution methods.(More)
We describe a new method for frequency down-conversion of MR signals acquired with the radio-frequency projections method for device localization. A low-amplitude, off-center RF pulse applied simultaneously with the echo signal is utilized as the reference for frequency down-conversion. Because of the low-amplitude and large offset from the Larmor(More)
In this study, the scanning EMG technique was implemented to investigate electrophysiological cross-sections of the motor unit (MU) territories in healthy volunteers and in subjects with juvenile myoclonic epilepsy and spinal muscular atrophy. Measurements were taken intramuscularly by means of two concentric needle electrodes from biceps brachialis(More)
