[Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Frontoparietal traffic signals: A fast optical imaging study of preparatory dynamics in response mode switching
20 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Pauline L. Baniqued
Coordination between networks of brain regions is important for optimal cognitive performance, especially in attention demanding tasks. With the event-related optical signal (EROS; a measure of changes in optical scattering due to neuronal activity) we can characterize rapidly evolving network...
[Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Graphene Atomic Shrink Wrap for Nanosandwiching Biomolecules
20 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Joshua D. Wood
Graphene, a two-dimensional honeycomb sheet of carbon atoms, has been hotly scrutinized for its desirable electronic applications. Still, graphene has hardly been used as an atomically thin membrane. Graphene membranes are conformal to surfaces, entrapping liquids, gases, and nanoparticles. Here,...
[Illinois] Beckman Graduate Seminar: Neural Correlates of Externally and Internally Originating Emotional Distraction Effects on Working Memory
20 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Alexandru D. Iordan
Balanced emotion-cognition interactions are critical for healthy functioning. Clinical studies suggest that symptoms of impaired executive control and enhanced emotional distractibility observed in affective disorders are linked to dysfunctional interactions between a dorsal executive system and...

[Illinois] GEM4 2012: Mechanobiology in Development
17 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Taher A. Saif
Cellular and Molecular Mechanics with a focus on Developmental BiologyThe 2012 GEM4 Summer School program consists of lectures in the mornings by experts in cellular and molecular mechanics and developmental biology, and hands-on labs in the afternoons on various experimental techniques in...
[Illinois] BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Spring 2012: Dynamics of Multimodal Magnetomotive Microspheres
15 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Adeel Ahmad
Iron oxide magnetic nanoparticles (MNP's), due to their small size, unique magnetic properties and the ability to manipulate these remotely, are promising materials for diagnostic, imaging, and therapeutics in biomedical applications. In this presentation, we describe the fabrication,...
[Illinois] BioNanotechnology Seminar Series Spring 2012: Multilayered Metal Dielectric nanoLAMPS for Highly Sensitive Multiplexed Detection of Pre-metastatic Cancer Cells
15 Jun 2013 | | Contributor(s):: Sean Sivapalan
We fabricate a new class of nanoLAMPS based on recent theoretical designs by the Bhargava group. A variety of methods are adapted to create alternating metal and dielectric layered nanoparticles with embedded Raman reporter molecules. These reporter molecules are then subject to the intense...
