Phase synchrony detection in multichannel newborn EEG signals using a mutual information based method

Sara Mohammadi; Ghasem Azemi

Volume 9, Issue 3 , December 2015, Pages 215-227

  One of the most important newborn EEG abnormalities is the synchrony between different channels which, according to the clinical studies, can lead to neurological and neurodevelopmental outcomes in adulthood. This paper introduces a new method for automated detection of phase synchrony in multivariate ...  Read More

Numerical modeling of cerebral autoregulation in human common carotid artery

Saeid Siri; Malikeh Nabaei; Nasser Fatouraee

Volume 9, Issue 3 , December 2015, Pages 229-241

  Every organ has its own metabolic and functional requirements and needs a variable amount of blood; hence, autoregulation is an important phenomenon. Shear stress induced autoregulation is defined as the innate ability of an organ to keep its hemodynamic conditions stable against changes in heart rate ...  Read More

Evaluation of Baseline Craving in Patients with Methamphetamine Addiction Using EEG Signals in Neurofeedback Process

Mahdi Zolfagharzadeh Kermani; Mohammad Ali Khalilzadeh; Majid Ghoshuni; Peyman Hashemian

Volume 9, Issue 3 , December 2015, Pages 243-251

  Evaluation and measurement of parameters associated with methamphetamine craving can be a valuable tool in the management and intervention programs related to methamphetamine use and dependence. We believe that quantitative electroencephalography (EEG) have brought about a revolution in identification ...  Read More

Optimization of a Hybrid MR Rotary Damper with Waveform Boundary Using in a Prosthetic Knee

Hasan Sayyadi; Seyed Hamid Zare

Volume 9, Issue 3 , December 2015, Pages 253-265

  The study focuses on the optimal design of a hybrid rotary MR with waveform boundary T-shaped rotor as prosthesis knee. In the biomechanical prosthesis knee MR fluid to create a variable braking torque depending on the magnetic field is used. By applying a magnetic field, the viscosity of the fluid is ...  Read More

A Model for Time Constant of Ionic Channels in Neurons

Seyed Hojat Sabzpoushan; Azadeh Ghajarjazy

Volume 9, Issue 3 , December 2015, Pages 267-282

  Time constant is a physical concept that one may deduce the speed of response and reaction of a system from it. Experimental findings confirm the dependency of the speed of opening-closing of ionic channels to the membrane voltage. In this paper a model for time constant of membrane voltage in neurons ...  Read More

Evaluation of the role of cervical multifidus muscle in differnet shoulder joint activities

Sharareh Kian-Bostanabad; Mahmoud Reza Azghani; Leila Rahnama

Volume 9, Issue 3 , December 2015, Pages 283-291

  Cervical multifidus muscle is one of the neck extensor muscles that plays an important role in the neck stability. By observing the different behaviors for this muscle during the six shoulder activities in previous study, it was modeled within the software and the effect of its action on the different ...  Read More

The effect of wall shear stress and oscillatory shear index on probability of atherosclerosis plaque formation in normal left coronary artery tree

Saeed Bahrami; Faramarz Firouzi

Volume 9, Issue 3 , December 2015, Pages 293-303

  It is accepted that wall shear stress (WSS) and Oscillatory Shear index (OSI) are strong hemodynamic factors to development of atherosclerotic (AS) plaque. Sometimes, OSI has an important effect on AS plaque formation, because WSSdoesn't make it happenalone. Most computational fluid dynamic (CFD) simulations ...  Read More

Optimum design of a knee orthosis powered by series elastic actuators

Rouhollah Sameri Nedafi; Ali Moazemi Goudarzi; Alireza Fathi

Volume 9, Issue 3 , December 2015, Pages 305-316

  Abstract: The statistical studies indicate that diseases, accidents and wares are the principal causes to increase the number of amputees in the world. These studies also show that the most of mutilation disabilities are related to musculoskeletal. Obesity, sedentary, lack of proper exercise as well ...  Read More
