Aging and functional brain networks  

SciTech Connect

Aging is associated with changes in human brain anatomy and function and cognitive decline. Recent studies suggest the aging decline of major functional connectivity hubs in the 'default-mode' network (DMN). Aging effects on other networks, however, are largely unknown. We hypothesized that aging would be associated with a decline of short- and long-range functional connectivity density (FCD) hubs in the DMN. To test this hypothesis, we evaluated resting-state data sets corresponding to 913 healthy subjects from a public magnetic resonance imaging database using functional connectivity density mapping (FCDM), a voxelwise and data-driven approach, together with parallel computing. Aging was associated with pronounced long-range FCD decreases in DMN and dorsal attention network (DAN) and with increases in somatosensory and subcortical networks. Aging effects in these networks were stronger for long-range than for short-range FCD and were also detected at the level of the main functional hubs. Females had higher short- and long-range FCD in DMN and lower FCD in the somatosensory network than males, but the gender by age interaction effects were not significant for any of the networks or hubs. These findings suggest that long-range connections may be more vulnerable to aging effects than short-range connections and that, in addition to the DMN, the DAN is also sensitive to aging effects, which could underlie the deterioration of attention processes that occurs with aging.

Complex Networks - A Key to Understanding Brain Function  

ScienceCinema (OSTI)

The brain is a complex network of neurons, engaging in spontaneous and evoked activity that is thought to be the main substrate of mental life.  How this complex system works together to process information and generate coherent cognitive states, even consciousness, is not yet well understood.  In my talk I will review recent studies that have revealed characteristic structural and functional attributes of brain networks, and discuss efforts to build computational models of the brain that are informed by our growing knowledge of brain anatomy and physiology.

Discrete Alterations of Brain Network Structural Covariance in Individuals at Ultra-High Risk for Psychosis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractBackground Investigation of aberrant large-scale brain networks offers novel insight into the role these networks play in diverse psychiatric disorders, such as schizophrenia. While there are studies reporting altered functional brain connectivity in participants at ultra-high risk (UHR) for psychosis, it is unclear whether these alterations extend to structural brain networks. Methods Whole-brain structural covariance patterns of 133 participants at UHR for psychosis (51 of whom subsequently developed psychosis) and 65 healthy controls (HC) were studied. Following data pre-processing (using VBM8), the mean signal in seed regions relating to specific networks (visual, auditory, motor, speech, semantic, executive, salience and default-mode) were extracted and voxel-wise analyses of covariance were conducted to compare the association between whole brain signal and each seed region for UHR and HC individuals. UHR participants who transitioned were compared to those who did not. Results Significantly reduced structural covariance was observed in the UHR sample compared to HC for the default-mode network, and increased covariance for the motor and executive control networks. When those who transitioned to psychosis were compared with those who did not, aberrant structural covariance was observed in the salience, executive-control, auditory and motor networks. Conclusions Whole-brain structural covariance analyses revealed subtle changes of connectivity of the default-mode, executive control, salience, motor and auditory networks in UHR individuals for psychosis. Although we found significant differences, these are small changes, and tend to reflect largely intact structural networks.

Improved measurement of brain deformation during mild head acceleration using a novel tagged MRI sequence  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract In vivo measurements of human brain deformation during mild acceleration are needed to help validate computational models of traumatic brain injury and to understand the factors that govern the mechanical response of the brain. Tagged magnetic resonance imaging is a powerful, noninvasive technique to track tissue motion in vivo which has been used to quantify brain deformation in live human subjects. However, these prior studies required from 72 to 144 head rotations to generate deformation data for a single image slice, precluding its use to investigate the entire brain in a single subject. Here, a novel method is introduced that significantly reduces temporal variability in the acquisition and improves the accuracy of displacement estimates. Optimization of the acquisition parameters in a gelatin phantom and three human subjects leads to a reduction in the number of rotations from 72 to 144 to as few as 8 for a single image slice. The ability to estimate accurate, well-resolved, fields of displacement and strain in far fewer repetitions will enable comprehensive studies of acceleration-induced deformation throughout the human brain in vivo.

Improving Combinatorial Ambiguities of ttbar Events Using Neural Networks  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

We present a method for resolving the combinatorial issues in the \\ttbar lepton+jets events occurring at the Tevatron collider. By incorporating multiple information into an artificial neural network, we introduce a novel event reconstruction method for such events. We find that this method significantly reduces the number of combinatorial ambiguities. Compared to the classical reconstruction method, our method provides significantly higher purity with same efficiency. We illustrate the reconstructed observables for the realistic top-quark mass and the forward-backward asymmetry measurements. A Monte Carlo study shows that our method provides meaningful improvements in the top-quark measurements using same amount of data as other methods.

Improving the performance of algorithms to find communities in networks  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Most algorithms to detect communities in networks typically work without any information on the cluster structure to be found, as one has no a priori knowledge of it, in general. Not surprisingly, knowing some features of the unknown partition could help its identification, yielding an improvement of the performance of the method. Here we show that, if the number of clusters was known beforehand, standard methods, like modularity optimization, would considerably gain in accuracy, mitigating the severe resolution bias that undermines the reliability of the results of the original unconstrained version. The number of clusters can be inferred from the spectra of the recently introduced nonbacktracking and flow matrices, even in benchmark graphs with realistic community structure. The limit of such a two-step procedure is the overhead of the computation of the spectra.

Artificial neural network based characterization of the volume of tissue activated during deep brain stimulation  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Objective. Clinical deep brain stimulation (DBS) systems can be programmed with thousands of different stimulation parameter combinations (e.g. electrode contact(s), voltage, pulse width, frequency). Our goal was to develop novel computational tools to characterize the effects of stimulation parameter adjustment for DBS. Approach. The volume of tissue activated (VTA) represents a metric used to estimate the spatial extent of DBS for a given parameter setting. Traditional methods for calculating the VTA rely on activation function (AF)-based approaches and tend to overestimate the neural response when stimulation is applied through multiple electrode contacts. Therefore, we created a new method for VTA calculation that relied on artificial neural networks (ANNs). Main results. The ANN-based predictor provides more accurate descriptions of the spatial spread of activation compared to AF-based approaches for monopolar stimulation. In addition, the ANN was able to accurately estimate the VTA in response to multi-contact electrode configurations. Significance. The ANN-based approach may represent a useful method for fast computation of the VTA in situations with limited computational resources, such as a clinical DBS programming application on a tablet computer.

An efficient flooding algorithm for improving network performance in optical WDM networks  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

In any networking environment, network and resource information has to be maintained periodically for re-routing the traffic. Especially in fault tolerant optical networks, after the faults are detected and recovered, the network topology changes have to be constantly configured for correct light path decisions to be made. In order to maintain correct routing tables and also to prevent blocking of forthcoming calls by the failed connection, the flooding messages have been broadcast to all nodes. When every node in the network floods the messages, problems arise of excessive redundancy of messages, resource contention and signal collision. This causes high protocol overhead and interference with the existing traffic in the networks. In this paper, lazy flooding algorithm is analysed and simulated by comparing the performance of all-flooding method and threshold flooding. Here, instead of flooding for each channel status update, such as to be changed from available to occupy or vice versa, we hold the process of update till it reaches certain points. The simulation results shows that the proposed flooding method achieves reduced blocking probability with increased throughput thereby increasing the scalability of the network.

Tilting for perfusion: Head-up position during cardiopulmonary resuscitation improves brain flow in a porcine model of cardiac arrest  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractIntroduction Cerebral perfusion is compromised during cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). We hypothesized that beneficial effects of gravity on the venous circulation during CPR performed in the head-up tilt (HUT) position would improve cerebral perfusion compared with supine or head-down tilt (HDT). Methods Twenty-two pigs were sedated, intubated, anesthetized, paralyzed and placed on a tilt table. After 6 min of untreated ventricular fibrillation (VF) CPR was performed on 14 pigs for 3 min with an automated CPR device called LUCAS (L) plus an impedance threshold device (ITD), followed by 5 min of L-CPR + ITD at 0° supine, 5 min at 30° HUT, and then 5 min at 30° HDT. Microspheres were used to measure organ blood flow in 8 pigs. L-CPR + ITD was performed on 8 additional pigs at 0°, 20°, 30°, 40°, and 50° HUT. Results Coronary perfusion pressure was 19 ± 2 mmHg at 0° vs. 30 ± 3 at 30° HUT (p Brain–blood flow was 0.19 ± 0.04 ml min?1 g?1 at 0° vs. 0.27 ± 0.04 at 30° HUT (p = 0.01) and 0.14 ± 0.06 at 30° HDT (p = 0.16). Heart blood flow was not significantly different between interventions. With 0, 10, 20, 30, 40 and 50° HUT, ICP values were 21 ± 2, 16 ± 2, 10 ± 2, 5 ± 2, 0 ± 2, ?5 ± 2 respectively, (p brain flow whereas HUT significantly lowered ICP and improved cerebral perfusion. Further studies are warranted to explore this new resuscitation concept.

Brain gain (drain), immigration and global network: Nepalese students in the UK  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Nepalese students in UK are struggling to balance tuition and other expenses in the short-run and for the gainful employment in the long run. The opportunity cost of emigration in a labour surplus economy of Nepal is very little in comparison to benefits from increased flow of remittances, transfer of knowledge, ideas and technologies. Net emigration results in brain gain rather than brain drain to Nepal and benefits in terms of output, employment and the stability in wages and inflation to the UK. Both governments, NPCCUK and NRNA can make this process more efficient by developing right mechanism and policies.

Energy efficiency improvements utilising mass flow control and a ring topology in a district heating network  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Heating and cooling have a major role in the energy sector, covering 46% of total final energy use worldwide. District heating (DH) is a significant technology for improving the energy efficiency of heating systems in communities, because it enables waste heat sources to be utilised economically and therefore significantly reduces the environmental impacts of power generation. As a result of new and more stringent construction regulations for buildings, the heat demands of individual buildings are decreasing and more energy-efficient heating systems have to be developed. In this study, the energy efficiency of a new DH system which includes both a new control system called mass flow control and a new network design called a ring network is examined. A topology in the Helsinki region is studied by using a commercial DH network modelling tool, Grades Heating. The district heating network is attached to a wood-burning heat station which has a heat recovery system in use. Examination is performed by means of both technical and economic analysis. The new non-linear temperature programme that is required is adopted for supply and return temperatures, which allows greater temperature cooling and smaller flow rates. Lower district heating water temperatures are essential when reducing the heat losses in the network and heat production. Mass flow control allows smaller pressure drops in the network and thus reduces the pumping power. The aim of this study was to determine the most energy-efficient DH water supply temperatures in the case network. If the ring network design is utilised, the district heating system is easier to control. As a result the total heat consumption within the heating season is reduced compared to traditional DH systems. On the basis of the results, the new DH system is significantly more energy-efficient in the case network that was examined than the traditional design. For example, average energy losses within the constraints (which consist of heat losses, pumping energy, and surplus energy from the heat recovery system) are reduced from 4.4% to 3.1%.

Feedforward artificial neural network to improve model predictive control in biological processes  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Artificial neural networks (ANNs) offer the versatility of being able to model the dynamics of a biosystem without requiring a phenomenological model. In addition, model predictive control (MPC) is a member of advanced discrete-time process control algorithms. The recent developments in the biotechnology due to MPC utilising the capability of ANN make the practical application of non-linear process control strategies a reality. This paper reviews the recent enhancement and applications of MPC in various biochemical processes using feedforward artificial neural networks which is also known as neural predictive control. The capability of neural predictive control to handle the common problems associated with biochemical processes, namely optimisation of objective function, optimisation of dynamic behaviour of the system, control of ill-defined non-linear systems, improving the computational efficiency of the strategy, disturbance rejection ability and evaluating the control effectiveness are discussed. The review clearly indicates that enormous work has been carried out involving dynamic behaviour of the bioreactor system which is analysed and optimised revealing that feedforward neural network has evolved as a good bioreactor neuro-controller.

STANDARD BIG BANG NUCLEOSYNTHESIS UP TO CNO WITH AN IMPROVED EXTENDED NUCLEAR NETWORK  

SciTech Connect

Primordial or big bang nucleosynthesis (BBN) is one of the three strong pieces of evidence for the big bang model together with the expansion of the universe and cosmic microwave background radiation. In this study, we improve the standard BBN calculations taking into account new nuclear physics analyses and enlarge the nuclear network up to sodium. This is, in particular, important to evaluate the primitive value of CNO mass fraction that could affect Population III stellar evolution. For the first time we list the complete network of more than 400 reactions with references to the origin of the rates, including Almost-Equal-To 270 reaction rates calculated using the TALYS code. Together with the cosmological light elements, we calculate the primordial beryllium, boron, carbon, nitrogen, and oxygen nuclei. We performed a sensitivity study to identify the important reactions for CNO, {sup 9}Be, and boron nucleosynthesis. We re-evaluated those important reaction rates using experimental data and/or theoretical evaluations. The results are compared with precedent calculations: a primordial beryllium abundance increase by a factor of four compared to its previous evaluation, but we note a stability for B/H and for the CNO/H abundance ratio that remains close to its previous value of 0.7 Multiplication-Sign 10{sup -15}. On the other hand, the extension of the nuclear network has not changed the {sup 7}Li value, so its abundance is still 3-4 times greater than its observed spectroscopic value.

Performance improvement of an optical network providing services based on multicast  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Operators of networks covering large areas are confronted with demands from some of their customers who are virtual service providers. These providers may call for the connectivity service which fulfils the specificity of their services, for instance a multicast transition with allocated bandwidth. On the other hand, network operators want to make profit by trading the connectivity service of requested quality to their customers and to limit their infrastructure investments (or do not invest anything at all). We focus on circuit switching optical networks and work on repetitive multicast demands whose source and destinations are {\\em \\`a priori} known by an operator. He may therefore have corresponding trees "ready to be allocated" and adapt his network infrastructure according to these recurrent transmissions. This adjustment consists in setting available branching routers in the selected nodes of a predefined tree. The branching nodes are opto-electronic nodes which are able to duplicate data and retransmit...

Improved one day-ahead price forecasting using combined time series and artificial neural network models for the electricity market  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The price forecasts embody crucial information for generators when planning bidding strategies to maximise profits. Therefore, generation companies need accurate price forecasting tools. Comparison of neural network and auto regressive integrated moving average (ARIMA) models to forecast commodity prices in previous researches showed that the artificial neural network (ANN) forecasts were considerably more accurate than traditional ARIMA models. This paper provides an accurate and efficient tool for short-term price forecasting based on the combination of ANN and ARIMA. Firstly, input variables for ANN are determined by time series analysis. This model relates the current prices to the values of past prices. Secondly, ANN is used for one day-ahead price forecasting. A three-layered feed-forward neural network algorithm is used for forecasting next-day electricity prices. The ANN model is then trained and tested using data from electricity market of Iran. According to previous studies, in the case of neural networks and ARIMA models, historical demand data do not significantly improve predictions. The results show that the combined ANNâ??ARIMA forecasts prices with high accuracy for short-term periods. Also, it is shown that policy-making strategies would be enhanced due to increased precision and reliability.

Current method of diagnosing kidney rejection based on histopathology of renal biopsies in form of lesion scores is error-prone. Researchers use gene expression microarrays in combination of machine learning to build better kidney rejection predictors. However the high dimensionality of data makes this task challenging and compels application of feature selection methods. We present a method for predicting lesions using combination of statistical and biological feature selection methods along with an ensemble learning technique. Results show that combining highly interacting genes (Hub Genes) from protein-protein interaction network with genes selected by squared t-test method brings the most accurate kidney lesion score predictor.

Optimal sizing and location of SVC devices for improvement of voltage profile in distribution network with dispersed photovoltaic and wind power plants  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Intermittent power generation of wind turbines and photovoltaic plants creates voltage disturbances in power distribution networks which may not be acceptable to the consumers. To control the deviations of the nodal voltages, it is necessary to use fast dynamic control of the reactive power in the distribution network. Implementation of the power electronic devices, such as Static Var Compensator (SVC), enables effective dynamic state as well as a static state of the nodal voltage control in the distribution network. This paper analyzed optimal sizing and location of SVC devices by using genetic algorithm, to improve nodal voltages profile in a distribution network with dispersed photovoltaic and wind power plants. Practical application of the developed methodology was tested on an example of a real distribution network.

brain control of coughing  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

There is an overwhelming body of evidence to support the existence of higher brain circuitries involved in the sensory detection of airways irritation and the motor control of coughing. The concept that cough is purely a reflex response to airways irritation is now superseded by the recognition that perception of an urge-to-cough and altered behavioral modification of coughing are key elements of cough disorders associated with airways disease. Understanding the pathways by which airway sensory nerves ascend into the brain and the patterns of neural activation associated with airways irritation will undoubtedly provide new insights into disordered coughing. This brief review aims to explore our current understanding of higher order cough networks by summarizing data from recent neuroanatomical and functional studies in animals and humans. We provide evidence for the existence of distinct higher order network components involved in the discrimination of signals arising from the airways and the motor control of coughing. The identification of these network components provides a blueprint for future research and the development of targeted managements for cough and the urge-to-cough.

Brain–computer symbiosis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The theoretical groundwork of the 1930s and 1940s and the technical advance of computers in the following decades provided the basis for dramatic increases in human efficiency. While computers continue to evolve, and we can still expect increasing benefits from their use, the interface between humans and computers has begun to present a serious impediment to full realization of the potential payoff. This paper is about the theoretical and practical possibility that direct communication between the brain and the computer can be used to overcome this impediment by improving or augmenting conventional forms of human communication. It is about the opportunity that the limitations of our body's input and output capacities can be overcome using direct interaction with the brain, and it discusses the assumptions, possible limitations and implications of a technology that I anticipate will be a major source of pervasive changes in the coming decades.

Neural Networks  

SciTech Connect

Physicists use large detectors to measure particles created in high-energy collisions at particle accelerators. These detectors typically produce signals indicating either where ionization occurs along the path of the particle, or where energy is deposited by the particle. The data produced by these signals is fed into pattern recognition programs to try to identify what particles were produced, and to measure the energy and direction of these particles. Ideally, there are many techniques used in this pattern recognition software. One technique, neural networks, is particularly suitable for identifying what type of particle caused by a set of energy deposits. Neural networks can derive meaning from complicated or imprecise data, extract patterns, and detect trends that are too complex to be noticed by either humans or other computer related processes. To assist in the advancement of this technology, Physicists use a tool kit to experiment with several neural network techniques. The goal of this research is interface a neural network tool kit into Java Analysis Studio (JAS3), an application that allows data to be analyzed from any experiment. As the final result, a physicist will have the ability to train, test, and implement a neural network with the desired output while using JAS3 to analyze the results or output. Before an implementation of a neural network can take place, a firm understanding of what a neural network is and how it works is beneficial. A neural network is an artificial representation of the human brain that tries to simulate the learning process [5]. It is also important to think of the word artificial in that definition as computer programs that use calculations during the learning process. In short, a neural network learns by representative examples. Perhaps the easiest way to describe the way neural networks learn is to explain how the human brain functions. The human brain contains billions of neural cells that are responsible for processing information [2]. Each one of these cells acts as a simple processor. When individual cells interact with one another, the complex abilities of the brain are made possible. In neural networks, the input or data are processed by a propagation function that adds up the values of all the incoming data. The ending value is then compared with a threshold or specific value. The resulting value must exceed the activation function value in order to become output. The activation function is a mathematical function that a neuron uses to produce an output referring to its input value. [8] Figure 1 depicts this process. Neural networks usually have three components an input, a hidden, and an output. These layers create the end result of the neural network. A real world example is a child associating the word dog with a picture. The child says dog and simultaneously looks a picture of a dog. The input is the spoken word ''dog'', the hidden is the brain processing, and the output will be the category of the word dog based on the picture. This illustration describes how a neural network functions.

QoS routing and rerouting optimisation in cognitive network  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The human interventions in the network should be reduced as much as possible to alleviate the network complexity. Through mimicking the cognitive behaviours of human brains, the cognitive network concept is proposed to improve the scalability, self-adaptation, self-organisation, and self-protection of the network. In this paper, based on the cognitive science model, we design the cognitive behaviours for the network nodes to benefit the quality-of-service (QoS) routing and rerouting optimisation. We propose a QoS routing protocol oriented to cognitive network, named as CogRT which addresses the rerouting issue as well. CogRT is a distributed hop-by-hop routing protocol. Inspired by the small-world phenomenon, the experiential route information is collected and stored at each node to benefit the future route selection. We implement and evaluate CogRT in NS2 platform. The results show that CogRT has achieved remarkable performance improvements over the protocols where no cognitive behaviours are exploited.

Chapter 33 - Brain Embolism  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Publisher Summary This chapter presents a discussion on the clinical findings of the brain embolism and cerebrovascular disorders. Brain embolism occurs when material, usually a thrombus, formed or introduced in one part of the vascular system travels to an artery that supplies brain tissue. There are three main components—the recipient artery that receives the material, the embolic material itself, and the donor source where the material originated. Donor sources include the heart, the aorta, and the neck arteries and their intracranial arterial branches proximal to the recipient artery. The most common cardiac sources are atrial fibrillation and other atrial arrythmias, myocardial ischemic pathology, and valvular heart diseases. However, less common cardiac pathologies such as myocardiopathies, cardiac tumors, and septal defects within the heart can also lead to brain embolism. The most common disease of arteries that leads to embolism is atherosclerosis. Materials from plaques and thrombi form within arteries in the neck and proximal intracranial arteries and embolize distally. Occasionally tumor particles, fat, and air and foreign particles introduced into veins or arteries embolize to the brain. The discussion on diagnosis includes recipient artery-related finding and donor sources. The chapter discusses treatment of the acute event of brain embolism and states that the goals of treatment of the acute ischemic event are minimization of brain ischemic injury and reperfusion whenever possible.

Prognostic Indexes for Brain Metastases: Which Is the Most Powerful?  

SciTech Connect

Purpose: The purpose of the present study was to compare the prognostic indexes (PIs) of patients with brain metastases (BMs) treated with whole brain radiotherapy (WBRT) using an artificial neural network. This analysis is important, because it evaluates the prognostic power of each PI to guide clinical decision-making and outcomes research. Methods and Materials: A retrospective prognostic study was conducted of 412 patients with BMs who underwent WBRT between April 1998 and March 2010. The eligibility criteria for patients included having undergone WBRT or WBRT plus neurosurgery. The data were analyzed using the artificial neural network. The input neural data consisted of all prognostic factors included in the 5 PIs (recursive partitioning analysis, graded prognostic assessment [GPA], basic score for BMs, Rotterdam score, and Germany score). The data set was randomly divided into 300 training and 112 testing examples for survival prediction. All 5 PIs were compared using our database of 412 patients with BMs. The sensibility of the 5 indexes to predict survival according to their input variables was determined statistically using receiver operating characteristic curves. The importance of each variable from each PI was subsequently evaluated. Results: The overall 1-, 2-, and 3-year survival rate was 22%, 10.2%, and 5.1%, respectively. All classes of PIs were significantly associated with survival (recursive partitioning analysis, P < .0001; GPA, P < .0001; basic score for BMs, P = .002; Rotterdam score, P = .001; and Germany score, P < .0001). Comparing the areas under the curves, the GPA was statistically most sensitive in predicting survival (GPA, 86%; recursive partitioning analysis, 81%; basic score for BMs, 79%; Rotterdam, 73%; and Germany score, 77%; P < .001). Among the variables included in each PI, the performance status and presence of extracranial metastases were the most important factors. Conclusion: A variety of prognostic models describe the survival of patients with BMs to a more or less satisfactory degree. Among the 5 PIs evaluated in the present study, GPA was the most powerful in predicting survival. Additional studies should include emerging biologic prognostic factors to improve the sensibility of these PIs.

Final Report on LDRD project 130784 : functional brain imaging by tunable multi-spectral Event-Related Optical Signal (EROS).  

SciTech Connect

Functional brain imaging is of great interest for understanding correlations between specific cognitive processes and underlying neural activity. This understanding can provide the foundation for developing enhanced human-machine interfaces, decision aides, and enhanced cognition at the physiological level. The functional near infrared spectroscopy (fNIRS) based event-related optical signal (EROS) technique can provide direct, high-fidelity measures of temporal and spatial characteristics of neural networks underlying cognitive behavior. However, current EROS systems are hampered by poor signal-to-noise-ratio (SNR) and depth of measure, limiting areas of the brain and associated cognitive processes that can be investigated. We propose to investigate a flexible, tunable, multi-spectral fNIRS EROS system which will provide up to 10x greater SNR as well as improved spatial and temporal resolution through significant improvements in electronics, optoelectronics and optics, as well as contribute to the physiological foundation of higher-order cognitive processes and provide the technical foundation for miniaturized portable neuroimaging systems.

How brains make decisions  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

This chapter, dedicated to the memory of Mino Freund, summarizes the Quantum Decision Theory (QDT) that we have developed in a series of publications since 2008. We formulate a general mathematical scheme of how decisions are taken, using the point of view of psychological and cognitive sciences, without touching physiological aspects. The basic principles of how intelligence acts are discussed. The human brain processes involved in decisions are argued to be principally different from straightforward computer operations. The difference lies in the conscious-subconscious duality of the decision making process and the role of emotions that compete with utility optimization. The most general approach for characterizing the process of decision making, taking into account the conscious-subconscious duality, uses the framework of functional analysis in Hilbert spaces, similarly to that used in the quantum theory of measurements. This does not imply that the brain is a quantum system, but just allows for the simple...

Cross-linked structure of network evolution  

SciTech Connect

We study the temporal co-variation of network co-evolution via the cross-link structure of networks, for which we take advantage of the formalism of hypergraphs to map cross-link structures back to network nodes. We investigate two sets of temporal network data in detail. In a network of coupled nonlinear oscillators, hyperedges that consist of network edges with temporally co-varying weights uncover the driving co-evolution patterns of edge weight dynamics both within and between oscillator communities. In the human brain, networks that represent temporal changes in brain activity during learning exhibit early co-evolution that then settles down with practice. Subsequent decreases in hyperedge size are consistent with emergence of an autonomous subgraph whose dynamics no longer depends on other parts of the network. Our results on real and synthetic networks give a poignant demonstration of the ability of cross-link structure to uncover unexpected co-evolution attributes in both real and synthetic dynamical systems. This, in turn, illustrates the utility of analyzing cross-links for investigating the structure of temporal networks.

Chapter 22 - The Effects of Taurine Exposure on the Brain and Neurological Disorders  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Taurine is present in the brain, where it appears to be involved in many functions from conception onward. It plays a role in neurotransmission, although the brain does not appear to have a specific taurine receptor. Studies of synthesis and distribution show that taurine is present in the brain of the early embryo and is differentially distributed. During the embryonic and early postnatal life, taurine appears to act as a major inhibitory neurotransmitter/modulator in the brain, having much higher concentrations than GABA in most areas. During the postnatal period, GABA gains dominance along with glycine as central inhibitory transmitters. Because de novo synthesis of taurine is relatively low in the brain, exogenous taurine is needed for appropriate development and adult functions of the brain. For instance, perinatal taurine depletion alters learning, memory, and neural control of blood pressure in adult life, whereas taurine supplementation prevents or improves some neurological disorders.

Noise-enhanced nonlinear response and the role of modular structure for signal detection in neuronal networks  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

We show that sensory noise can enhance the nonlinear response of neuronal networks, and when delivered together with a weak signal, it improves the signal detection by the network. We reveal this phenomenon in neuronal networks that are in a dynamical state preceding a saddle-node bifurcation corresponding to the appearance of sustained network oscillations. In this state, even a weak subthreshold pulse can evoke a large-amplitude oscillation of neuronal activity. The signal-to-noise ratio reaches a maximum at an optimum level of sensory noise, manifesting stochastic resonance (SR) at the population level. We demonstrate SR by use of simulations and numerical integration of rate equations in a cortical model. Using this model, we mimic the experiments of Gluckman et al. [Phys. Rev. Lett. 77, 4098 (1996)] that have given evidence of SR in mammalian brain. We also study neuronal networks in which neurons are grouped in modules and every module works in the regime of SR. We find that even a few modules can strongly enhance the reliability of signal detection in comparison with the case when a modular organization is absent.

Gasification facilities' are currently unable to meet these requirements, which have created a potential roadblock to widespread acceptance and commercialization of gasification technologies. Refractory liners and syngas coolers are among key components of the gasification process previously identified as negatively impacting gasifier availability. Ash originating from impurities in the gasifier's carbon feedstock is the root cause of many problems impacting gasifier RAM (Reliability Availability Maintainability). At the high temperatures of gasification, ash changes to liquid, gas, and solid phases which wear down refractory materials and can cause fouling, either of which can lead to unplanned shutdowns for system repair, replacement, or cleaning.

Network Bandwidth Utilization Forecast Model on High Bandwidth Network  

SciTech Connect

With the increasing number of geographically distributed scientific collaborations and the scale of the data size growth, it has become more challenging for users to achieve the best possible network performance on a shared network. We have developed a forecast model to predict expected bandwidth utilization for high-bandwidth wide area network. The forecast model can improve the efficiency of resource utilization and scheduling data movements on high-bandwidth network to accommodate ever increasing data volume for large-scale scientific data applications. Univariate model is developed with STL and ARIMA on SNMP path utilization data. Compared with traditional approach such as Box-Jenkins methodology, our forecast model reduces computation time by 83.2percent. It also shows resilience against abrupt network usage change. The accuracy of the forecast model is within the standard deviation of the monitored measurements.

Chapter thirteen - Transport of a Caspase Inhibitor Across the Blood–Brain Barrier by Chitosan Nanoparticles  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The current treatment of neurological and psychiatric diseases is far beyond being satisfactory. In addition to highly complex disease mechanisms, the blood–brain barrier (BBB) also remains as a challenge by limiting the delivery of the majority of currently available therapeutics to the central nervous system. Several approaches taking advantage of molecular and physicochemical characteristics of the BBB have been developed recently to improve drug delivery to the brain. Here, we introduce a nanomedicine that can efficiently transport BBB-impermeable peptides to the brain. This nanomedicine is made of chitosan nanoparticles into which considerable amounts of a peptide can be incorporated. The nanoparticle surface is modified with polyethylene glycol to enhance the plasma residence time by preventing their capture by the reticuloendothelial system. Monoclonal antibodies against the transferrin receptor (TfR), which is highly expressed on the brain capillary endothelium, are conjugated to nanoparticles via biotin–streptavidin bonds. The activation of TfR by the nanoparticle–antibody complex induces transcytosis and thus delivers the loaded drug to the brain. Penetration of nanoparticles to the brain can be illustrated in vivo by intravital microscopy as well as ex vivo by fluorescence or electron microscopy. N-Benzyloxycarbonyl-Asp(OMe)-Glu(OMe)-Val-Asp(OMe)-fluoromethyl ketone (Z-DEVD-FMK)-loaded nanoparticles rapidly release their contents within brain parenchyma, inhibit ischemia-induced caspase-3 activity, and thereby provide neuroprotection.

Phoebus: Network Middleware for Next-Generation Network Computing  

SciTech Connect

The Phoebus project investigated algorithms, protocols, and middleware infrastructure to improve end-to-end performance in high speed, dynamic networks. The Phoebus system essentially serves as an adaptation point for networks with disparate capabilities or provisioning. This adaptation can take a variety of forms including acting as a provisioning agent across multiple signaling domains, providing transport protocol adaptation points, and mapping between distributed resource reservation paradigms and the optical network control plane. We have successfully developed the system and demonstrated benefits. The Phoebus system was deployed in Internet2 and in ESnet, as well as in GEANT2, RNP in Brazil and over international links to Korea and Japan. Phoebus is a system that implements a new protocol and associated forwarding infrastructure for improving throughput in high-speed dynamic networks. It was developed to serve the needs of large DOE applications on high-performance networks. The idea underlying the Phoebus model is to embed Phoebus Gateways (PGs) in the network as on-ramps to dynamic circuit networks. The gateways act as protocol translators that allow legacy applications to use dedicated paths with high performance.

Serotonin, tryptophan metabolism and the brain-gut-microbiome axis  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The brain-gut axis is a bidirectional communication system between the central nervous system and the gastrointestinal tract. Serotonin functions as a key neurotransmitter at both terminals of this network. Accumulating evidence points to a critical role for the gut microbiome in regulating normal functioning of this axis. In particular, it is becoming clear that the microbial influence on tryptophan metabolism and the serotonergic system may be an important node in such regulation. There is also substantial overlap between behaviours influenced by the gut microbiota and those which rely on intact serotonergic neurotransmission. The developing serotonergic system may be vulnerable to differential microbial colonisation patterns prior to the emergence of a stable adult-like gut microbiota. At the other extreme of life, the decreased diversity and stability of the gut microbiota may dictate serotonin-related health problems in the elderly. The mechanisms underpinning this crosstalk require further elaboration but may be related to the ability of the gut microbiota to control host tryptophan metabolism along the kynurenine pathway, thereby simultaneously reducing the fraction available for serotonin synthesis and increasing the production of neuroactive metabolites. The enzymes of this pathway are immune and stress-responsive, both systems which buttress the brain-gut axis. In addition, there are neural processes in the gastrointestinal tract which can be influenced by local alterations in serotonin concentrations with subsequent relay of signals along the scaffolding of the brain-gut axis to influence CNS neurotransmission. Therapeutic targeting of the gut microbiota might be a viable treatment strategy for serotonin-related brain-gut axis disorders.

Synchrotron radiation imaging is a powerful tool to image brain microvasculature  

SciTech Connect

Synchrotron radiation (SR) imaging is a powerful experimental tool for micrometer-scale imaging of microcirculation in vivo. This review discusses recent methodological advances and findings from morphological investigations of cerebral vascular networks during several neurovascular pathologies. In particular, it describes recent developments in SR microangiography for real-time assessment of the brain microvasculature under various pathological conditions in small animal models. It also covers studies that employed SR-based phase-contrast imaging to acquire 3D brain images and provide detailed maps of brain vasculature. In addition, a brief introduction of SR technology and current limitations of SR sources are described in this review. In the near future, SR imaging could transform into a common and informative imaging modality to resolve subtle details of cerebrovascular function.

Pinning impulsive control algorithms for complex network  

SciTech Connect

In this paper, we further investigate the synchronization of complex dynamical network via pinning control in which a selection of nodes are controlled at discrete times. Different from most existing work, the pinning control algorithms utilize only the impulsive signals at discrete time instants, which may greatly improve the communication channel efficiency and reduce control cost. Two classes of algorithms are designed, one for strongly connected complex network and another for non-strongly connected complex network. It is suggested that in the strongly connected network with suitable coupling strength, a single controller at any one of the network's nodes can always pin the network to its homogeneous solution. In the non-strongly connected case, the location and minimum number of nodes needed to pin the network are determined by the Frobenius normal form of the coupling matrix. In addition, the coupling matrix is not necessarily symmetric or irreducible. Illustrative examples are then given to validate the proposed pinning impulsive control algorithms.

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The central-force network dynamics model for glasses is extended to treat networks involving small regular rings of bonds. In particular, band-limit formulas are obtained for an A2X3 glass consisting of regular puckered six-membered A3X3 rings. The special case of planar rings is compared with observations on vitreous B2O3. This continuous random network of "boroxol" rings shows improved agreement with experiment over a model not containing rings. The remaining discrepancies illustrate the need to include noncentral forces in the network dynamics of v-B2O3.

Improved Microseismicity Detection During Newberry EGS Stimulations  

SciTech Connect

Effective enhanced geothermal systems (EGS) require optimal fracture networks for efficient heat transfer between hot rock and fluid. Microseismic mapping is a key tool used to infer the subsurface fracture geometry. Traditional earthquake detection and location techniques are often employed to identify microearthquakes in geothermal regions. However, most commonly used algorithms may miss events if the seismic signal of an earthquake is small relative to the background noise level or if a microearthquake occurs within the coda of a larger event. Consequently, we have developed a set of algorithms that provide improved microearthquake detection. Our objective is to investigate the microseismicity at the DOE Newberry EGS site to better image the active regions of the underground fracture network during and immediately after the EGS stimulation. Detection of more microearthquakes during EGS stimulations will allow for better seismic delineation of the active regions of the underground fracture system. This improved knowledge of the reservoir network will improve our understanding of subsurface conditions, and allow improvement of the stimulation strategy that will optimize heat extraction and maximize economic return.

Unitizing worker expertise and maximizing the brain reward centers  

SciTech Connect

People are experts when it comes to the work they do; unfortunately their expertise is not utilized as frequently as it could be. More opportunities need to be provided that allow people to participate in the design of their work including: accident investigations, job planning, and process improvements. Many employers use some form of job hazard analysis process to identify and document hazards and controls, but the front line worker is rarely involved. This presentation will show the core principles supporting employee involvement, provide examples where workers had brilliant ideas but no one listened, and provide examples where workers were given the opportunity to use their expertise to improve occupational safety. According to Abraham Maslow's Hierarch of Needs model, one essential human need is to be innovative and solve problems. Advances in brain science have proven, through functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) studies, the brain reward pathway is activated when people are recognized for their intellectual contributions. As people contribute their expertise to improve occupational safety more frequently they will feel a sense of gratification. In addition, safety professionals will have more time to spend on strategic planning of emerging occupational safety issues. One effect of the current global recession is that SH&E professionals are asked to do more with less. Therefore, to be successful it is essential that SH&E professionals incorporate worker expertise in job planning. This will be illustrated in the presentation through an example where a worker had the answer to a difficult decision on appropriate personal protective equipment for a job but no one asked the worker for his idea during the job planning phase. Fortunately the worker was eventually consulted and his recommendation for the appropriate personal protective equipment for the job was implemented before work began. The goal of this presentation is to expand the awareness and knowledge of SH&E professionals on the benefits and opportunities for leveraging brain science. This will include an overview of the components of the brain reward pathway and the biological mechanisms that make workers feel a sense of gratification when they contribute their ideas toward improving occupational safety. On-the-job examples where it is hypothesized that the brain reward pathway was activated in workers will be provided. Finally, the presentation will include a model illustrating the importance of empowering workers to participate in occupational safety programs. SH&E professionals can use this model to maintain a robust safety and health program with limited resources. The model will also help SH&E professionals prepare for challenges in the SH&E fields by showing them how to allocate more time for strategic planning of emerging issues. Many recent best selling business books such as Wikinomics, Crowdsourcing, and Sway, illustrate how the benefit of harnessing the collective knowledge of employees is a key to company success. Companies like Google and Pixar have mastered the ability to capture empFoyee knowledge in terms of technology. Why should occupational safety be any different? Workers know how to improve safety in their workplace. SH&E professionals can harness this collective safety knowledge just as top companies do with technology, and workers will feel grateful for contributing.

Chapter 16 - Traumatic Brain Injury  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Traumatic brain injury (TBI) is a major public health burden sustained by millions of people annually. The effects of TBI can be characterized based on clinical severity or underlying pathology, with both factors influencing expected recovery. Acute factors involved in the pathophysiology of TBI have been relatively well explored, but chronic effects require further investigation. Of specific interest is the relationship between TBI and neurodegenerative disease, including chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE). Originally found in boxers, CTE has been diagnosed in a wide variety of individuals who had been exposed to head trauma. Although the focal perivascular clusters of hyperphosphorylated tau diagnostic of CTE may be found as early as the second decade, the first clinical signs of CTE are not typically observed until one's thirties or forties. Animal models of CTE are under development, as well as in vivo diagnostic tools utilizing the clinical assessment and analysis of biomarkers.

Determination of lithology from well logs using a neural network  

SciTech Connect

The authors have developed a computer program to automatically determine lithologies from well logs using a back-propagation neural network. Unlike a conventional serial computer, a neural network is a computational system composed of nodes (sometimes called neurons, neurodes, or units) and the connections between these nodes. Neural computing attempts to emulate the functions of the mammalian brain, thus mimicking thought processes. The neural network approach differs from previous pattern recognition methods in its ability to learn from examples. Unlike conventional statistical methods, this new approach does not require sophisticated mathematics and a large amount of statistical data. This paper discusses the application of neural networks to a pattern recognition problem in geology: the determination of lithology from well logs. The neural network determined the lithologies (limestone, dolomite, sandstone, shale, sandy and dolomitic limestones, sandy dolomite, and shale sandstone) from selected well logs in a fraction of the time required by an experienced human log analyst.

Energy audit of irrigation networks  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The relationship between water and energy in water distribution systems (WDS) has been a growing concern among energy and water experts. Among the different strategies to improve water–energy efficiency in water distribution networks, energy audits are of paramount importance as they quantify water flow requirements, the amount of energy consumed to meet demand and leakage and friction losses. Previous work has presented the energy audit process for urban WDS and this energy audit is extended to irrigation networks here. This work analyses the most common types of irrigation emitters (sprinklers and pressure compensating and non-pressure compensating drippers), hydrant specifications, irrigation management systems (on-demand or rigid scheduled), and energy losses due to friction in pipes, control valves and irrigation hydrants. The energy audit does not assess whether management of the network is optimal, but analyses the energy consumption. Some of the performance indicators have already been defined for agricultural water networks, some are identical to those of urban WDS, but in addition, a new one is presented that disaggregates the energy dissipated into three terms, energy losses in pipelines, in hydraulic valves and in irrigation hydrants. These indicators show information necessary to better understand the performance of the irrigation network under study, to carry out a deep analysis of energy consumption and to allow for comparison with similar systems. The paper presents the analysis of a real case study conducted on the irrigation network of the garden of the Universidad Politécnica de Valencia.

June 20, 2002 June 20, 2002 Electronic newsroom 02-51 More Clues About Obesity Revealed by Brain-Imaging Study UPTON, NY — The idea that obese people eat too much because they find food more palatable than lean people do has gained support from a new brain-imaging study at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Brookhaven National Laboratory. The study reveals that the parts of the brain responsible for sensation in the mouth, lips, and tongue are more active in obese people than in normal-weight control subjects. “This enhanced activity in brain regions involved with sensory processing of food could make obese people more sensitive to the rewarding properties of food, and could be one of the reasons they overeat,” said Brookhaven physician Gene-Jack Wang, lead author of the study.

Brain mass estimation by head circumference and body mass methods in neonatal glycaemic modelling and control  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

AbstractIntroduction Hyperglycaemia is a common complication of stress and prematurity in extremely low-birth-weight infants. Model-based insulin therapy protocols have the ability to safely improve glycaemic control for this group. Estimating non-insulin-mediated brain glucose uptake by the central nervous system in these models is typically done using population-based body weight models, which may not be ideal. Method A head circumference-based model that separately treats small-for-gestational-age (SGA) and appropriate-for-gestational-age (AGA) infants is compared to a body weight model in a retrospective analysis of 48 patients with a median birth weight of 750 g and median gestational age of 25 weeks. Estimated brain mass, model-based insulin sensitivity (SI) profiles, and projected glycaemic control outcomes are investigated. SGA infants (5) are also analyzed as a separate cohort. Results Across the entire cohort, estimated brain mass deviated by a median 10% between models, with a per-patient median difference in SI of 3.5%. For the SGA group, brain mass deviation was 42%, and per-patient SI deviation 13.7%. In virtual trials, 87–93% of recommended insulin rates were equal or slightly reduced (? head circumference method, while glycaemic control outcomes showed little change. Conclusion The results suggest that body weight methods are not as accurate as head circumference methods. Head circumference-based estimates may offer improved modelling accuracy and a small reduction in insulin administration, particularly for SGA infants.

The body of knowledge accumulated in recent years on the structure and the dynamics of complex networks has offered useful insights on the behaviour of many natural and artificial complex systems. The analysis of some of these, namely those formed by companies and institutions, however, has proved problematical mainly for the difficulties in collecting a reasonable amount of data. This contribution argues that the World Wide Web can provide an efficient and effective way to gather significant samples of networked socio-economic systems to be used for network analyses and simulations. The case discussed refers to a tourism destination, the fundamental subsystem of an industry which can be considered one of the most important in today's World economy.

Innovation flow through social networks: Productivity distribution  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

A detailed empirical analysis of the productivity of non financial firms across several countries and years shows that productivity follows a non-Gaussian distribution with power law tails. We demonstrate that these empirical findings can be interpreted as consequence of a mechanism of exchanges in a social network where firms improve their productivity by direct innovation or/and by imitation of other firm's technological and organizational solutions. The type of network-connectivity determines how fast and how efficiently information can diffuse and how quickly innovation will permeate or behaviors will be imitated. From a model for innovation flow through a complex network we obtain that the expectation values of the productivity level are proportional to the connectivity of the network of links between firms. The comparison with the empirical distributions reveals that such a network must be of a scale-free type with a power-law degree distribution in the large connectivity range.

Transformation of Networks through Cognitive Approaches  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

The growth in data traffic and the increased demand for quality of service has meant current network systems need to be more efficient. The introduction of improved routing systems to meet the increasing demand and varied protocols to accommodate various scales of challenges in network efficiency has further complicated the operations. This means a better mode of intelligence had to be infused into networking for smoother operations and better autonomic features. Cognitive networks are defined and analyzed in this angle. They are identified to have the potential to deal with the future user related quality and efficiency of service at optimized levels. The cognitive elements of system like perception, learning, planning, reasoning and decision forming can enable the systems to be more aware of their environment and offer better services. These approaches are expected to transform the mode of operation of future networks.

Chapter 7 - Polyphenols, Nerve Growth Factor, Brain-Derived Neurotrophic Factor, and the Brain  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract The central nervous system (CNS) has a limited capacity to spontaneously regenerate following traumatic injury or disease; therefore, the availability of new, innovative strategies to recover from the alteration in brain structure and function to promote tissue and functional repair would be of great importance. At the present time, many efforts have been carried out to identify strategies or drugs able to prevent or at least attenuate brain damage. This review summarizes the current knowledge of the major bioactivities and the efficacy on the brain of polyphenols and CNS active herbal remedies in order to stimulate interest in evaluating these compounds as potential sources for structurally and functionally novel CNS active drugs. We discuss the role of polyphenols in the brain and their functional implications for the healthy and diseased brain, especially with regard to their ability to modulate neurotrophin functions.

Structural and functional effects of social isolation on the hippocampus of rats with traumatic brain injury  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

Abstract Social isolation has significant long-term psychological and physiological consequences. Both social isolation and traumatic brain injury (TBI) alter normal brain function and structure. However, the influence of social isolation on recovery from TBI is unclear. This study aims to evaluate if social isolation exacerbates the anatomical and functional deficits after TBI in young rats. Juvenile male rats were divided into four groups; sham operated control with social contacts, sham control with social isolation, TBI with social contacts, and TBI with social isolation. During four weeks after brain injury in juvenile rats, we evaluated the animal behaviors by T-maze and open-field tests, recorded brain activity with electrocorticograms and assessed structural changes by histological procedures in the hippocampal dentate gyrus, CA1, and CA3 areas. Our findings revealed significant memory impairments and hyperactivity conditions in rats with TBI and social isolation compared to the other groups. Histological assessments showed an increase of the mean number of dark neurons, apoptotic cells, and caspase-3 positive cells in all tested areas of the hippocampus in TBI rats with and without social isolation compared to sham rats. Furthermore, social isolation significantly increased the number of dark cells, apoptotic neurons, and caspase-3 positive cells in the hippocampal CA3 region in rats with TBI. This study indicates the harmful effect of social isolation on anatomical and functional deficits induced by TBI in juvenile rats. Prevention of social isolation may improve the outcome of TBI.

High-speed quantum networking by ship  

E-Print Network (OSTI)

Quantum communication will improve the security of cryptographic systems and decision-making algorithms, support secure client-server computation, and improve the sensitivity of scientific instruments. As these applications consume quantum entanglement, a method for replenishing networked entanglement is essential. Direct transmission of quantum signals over long distances is prevented by fibre attenuation and the no-cloning theorem. This has motivated the development of quantum repeaters, which are designed to purify entanglement and extend its range. Quantum repeaters have been demonstrated over short distances, but an error-corrected repeater network with sufficient bandwidth over global distances will require new technology. In particular, no proposed hardware appears suitable for deployment along undersea cables, leaving the prospect of isolated metropolitan networks. Here we show that error-corrected quantum memories installed in cargo containers and carried by ship could provide a flexible and scalable connection between local networks, enabling low-latency, high-fidelity quantum communication across global distances. With recent demonstrations of quantum technology with sufficient fidelity to enable topological error correction, implementation of the necessary quantum memories is within reach, and effective bandwidth will increase with improvements in fabrication. Thus, our architecture provides a new approach to quantum networking that avoids many of the technological requirements of undersea quantum repeaters, providing an alternate path to a worldwide Quantum Internet.

Temporary blood?brain barrier disruption via focused ultrasound for targeted drug delivery in the brain  

Science Journals Connector (OSTI)

The ability to deliver drugs to the central nervous system is severely limited by the presence of the blood?brain barrier (BBB). This barrier normally serves to protect the brain and restricts the passage of most molecules from being delivered to the brain tissue from the blood stream. We have developed a method by which the BBB is temporarily disrupted in localized regions using low?power ultrasound pulses combined with a circulating ultrasound contrast agent. By systematically focusing at multiple overlapping locations one could prescribe the region in which the BBB is disrupted to conform to a desired target volume reducing drug penetration to the rest of the brain.Ultrasound parameters suited for this procedure are compatible with a device that can focus through the intact skull. In this presentation we will describe recent research on this technique discussing methodology safety possible mechanisms and potential means to guide and monitor the procedure.

We concluded that the MP process could be improved for most users by tuning the system configuration. With the approval of both the STRIPES Executive Steering Committee and the STRIPES Project Office, we launched the MP Process Improvement Initiative. After many meetings with members of the STRIPES Team and Working Group, we are ready to "go-live" with this initiative. On October 1 st , 2012 the new MP process will be implemented for use by most field offices.
