Upper extremity proprioception in healthy aging and stroke populations, and the effects of therapist- and robot-based rehabilitation therapies on proprioceptive function
The world’s population is aging, with the number of people ages 65 or older expected to surpass 1.5 billion people, or 16% of the global total. As people age, there are notable declines in proprioception due to changes in ...
A facile and universal top-down method for preparation of monodisperse transition-metal dichalcogenide nanodots
Despite unique properties of layered transition-metal dichalcogenide (TMD) nanosheets, there is still lack of a facile and general strategy for the preparation of TMD nanodots (NDs). Reported herein is the preparation of ...
Spreading of a ferrofluid core in three-stream micromixer channels
Spreading of a water based ferrofluid core, cladded by a diamagnetic fluid, in three-stream micromixer channels was studied. This spreading, induced by an external magnetic field, is known as magnetofluidic spreading (MFS). ...
All metal nitrides solid-state asymmetric supercapacitors
Two metal nitrides, TiN porous layers and Fe2N nanoparticles, are grown uniformly with the assistance of atomic layer deposition on vertically aligned graphene nanosheets and used as the cathode and anode for solid-state ...
Spectral approximation of time-harmonic Maxwell equations in three-dimensional exterior domains
We develop in this paper an efficient and robust spectral-Galerkin method for solving the three-dimensional time-harmonic Maxwell equations in exterior domains. We first reduce the problem to a bounded domain by using the ...
Community quorum sensing signalling and quenching : microbial granular biofilm assembly
Background: Recent reports exploring the role of gradients of quorum sensing (QS) signals in functional activated sludge have raised the question of whether shared systems of signalling synthesis and degradation, or quorum ...
