Axon Stretch Growth: The Mechanotransduction of Neuronal Growth Joseph R. Loverde1,2, Rosa E. Tolentino1,2, Bryan J. Pfister1 1Departments of Biomedical Engineering, New Jersey Institute of Technology, 2Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences, University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey A unique tissue engineering method was developed to elongate numerous nerve fibers in culture by recapitulating axon stretch growth; a form of nervous system growth whereby nerves elongate in conjunction with growth of the enlarging body.
VisualEyes: A Modular Software System for Oculomotor Experimentation Yi Guo1, Eun H. Kim1, Tara L. Alvarez1 1Department of Biomedical Engineering, New Jersey Institute of Technology Neural control and cognitive processes can be studied through eye movements. The VisualEyes software allows an operator to program stimuli on two computer screens independently using a simple, custom scripting language. The system can stimulate tandem eye movements (saccades and smooth pursuit) or opposing eye movements (vergence) or any combination.
