    • Cortical surface recurrent brain-computer interfaces 

      Zanos, Stavros (2013-11-14)
      The output of a "traditional" brain computer-interface (BCI) is the operation of an effector mechanism, like a cursor or a prosthetic arm. In contrast, the output of a recurrent brain-computer interface (rBCI) is electrical ...
    • The Interaction of Lingo-1 and Amyloid Precursor Protein 

      de Laat, Rian C. (2012-09-10)
      Proteolytic cleavage of amyloid precursor protein (APP) generates the amyloid β peptide (Aβ), the main component of cortical and subcortical plaques in Alzheimer's disease (AD). APP can be processed at the cell surface or ...
    • The limits imposed in primate vision by transduction in cone photoreceptors 

      Angueyra, Juan
      Experientially, our ability to visually perceive the world seems extraordinary, yet we keep asking ourselves: "could perception be better?" This dissertation centers around this question, exploring how the biophysics of ...
    • Operant conditioning of cortical cell and muscle response patterns 

      Eaton, Ryan W.
      <bold>Part I:</bold> In primates, corticomotoneuronal (CM) cells have sufficiently strong synaptic linkages to motoneurons to mediate post-spike facilitation in spike-triggered averages of muscle activity. We investigated ...
