A Versatile Method of Patterning Proteins and Cells Anil B. Shrirao*1, Frank H. Kung*2, Derek Yip3, Bonnie L. Firestein2, Cheul H, Cho3, Ellen Townes-Anderson4 1Department of Biomedical Engineering, Rutgers University, 2Department of Cell Biology and Neuroscience, Rutgers University, 3Department of Biomedical Engineering, New Jersey Institute of Technology, 4Department of Pharmacology, Physiology, and Neuroscience, Rutgers New Jersey Medical School This report describes a simple, easy to perform technique, using low pressure vacuum, to fill microfluidic channels with cells and substrates for biological research.
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.
