<i>In Vivo</i> Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging and Spectroscopic Investigations of Structure and Function of Rodent Brain
out of 5 stars
30 Jul 2008 | | Contributor(s):: Anant B. Patel
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is a powerful and a versatile imaging modality for non-invasive characterization of host structure and function. MRI has grown in many directions such as functional MRI, diffusion tensor imaging, chemical shift imaging, which is used to detect single...

Cells: The Building Blocks of Life Learning Module
28 Aug 2017 | | Contributor(s):: Southwest Center for Microsystems Education (SCME)
This learning module provides a review of "cells", the smallest unit exhibiting the properties of life. It discusses how these cells are being used in bioMEMS as well as other micro and nano-sized devices. A research activity provides the opportunity to further explore how...

Collective Sensing by Communicating Cells
22 Sep 2016 | | Contributor(s):: Andrew Mugler
In this talk I will describe recent theoretical and experimental results in which this question is explored in several contexts, including gradient detection by groups of epithelial cells. I will show how communication allows cells to perform qualitatively new behaviors that single cells cannot...
