The CCNY BME Seminar by Jerry Korten, General Manager Strategic Markets at GE Healthcare, who will talk on “Epic Fail, Great Design versus the Clinical Value Proposition“. The seminar will be held on October 27, 2010 at 3:00 PM in Steinman Hall Room ST-402.
Our Wireless Intraoperative Pulse Oximeter (“WiPOX”) enters Phase 1 clinical trials at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC). Developed by Dr. Marom Bikson, Luiz Carolos Olleris, and Varun Bansal in collaboration with Dr. Prasad Adusumilli (MSKCC), the WiPOX have a wide range of potential applications ranging from acute (home) patient monitoring to plastic surgery. Learn more at our Project page.
Dr. Marom Bikson will present our paper on the effects of DBS electric field on blood-brain barrier permeability to the Columbia Brain Stimulation and Therapeutic Modulation journal club. This will be relevant for other modalities like ECT, MST, and TMS. See also the Neual Engineering Project Page,
Wednesday, 8/18/10 at 1pm in Pardes Room 5001.
Congratulations Davide at al. on the paper “Low-intensity electrical stimulation affects network dynamics by modulating population rate and spike timing” accepted by The Journal of Neuroscience.
Asif brings this popular press articles to our attention: PopSci and New Scientist articles.
This was with conventional tDCS. So imagine the the further “boost” with our HD-tDCS (abhi’s key article, Soterix).
Soterix Medical is a CCNY Neural Engineering spin-off that will develop the most state-of-the-art technology for non-invasive neuromodulation including tDCS and HD-tDCS.

“Neural Engineering applies engineering principles to solve questions in brain research, interesting overview article” from the Neurotechnology twitter feed.
Davide Reato gives the first of three lectures today on neuron models. The first lecture introduces neuronal modeling to the uninitiated – first describing types of models (compartmental models, cascade models and black box models) then followed by a discussion on classes of spiking neurons. The second lecture in this series will dive into the ways to model neurons.
Xiang Zhou will present “Outer hair cell function correlates with tinnitus” at the Fourth International TRI Conference: Frontiers in Tinnitus Research in the University of Texas, Dallas (June 8-11).
