Biofidelic Model of Human Cranium and Intracranial Contents

INTRODUCTION Brain injury researchers and human protection engineers need a tool to investigate how mechanical loading influences brain motion, strain and displacement. A new test object must be able to quantify metrics of soft-tissue/brain tissue disruption from head injury. Current testing for head injury is crash test dummies. This model determines...

A Compact Design for Wireless Powered Resistive Senor

COMPACT DESIGN FOR WIRELESS POWERED RESISTIVE SENSORSVALUE PROPOSITIONWireless sensors are used to measure different parameters that could not previously be measured. Many wireless sensors on the market today use inductance to measure parameters but there are limited measures that can be done using inductance. Resistive measurements rely on a resistive...

Surface TSPO in blood cells: Biomarker of peripheral and brain inflammation

INTRODUCTIONTranslocator Protein 18kDa (TSPO) is a nuclear encoded outer mitochondrial membrane protein that is ubiquitously expressed by most host cells. Initially, TSPO was a diazepam target, but it has also been referred to as an ‘orphan protein searching for a function’. Since the generation of these knockouts, TSPO has been determined...
