Prof. Sato’s continuing work with our lab on instrumentation for flying insects was the cover of the current issue of Current Biology! http://www.cell.com/current-biology/abstract/S0960-9822(15)00083-4
Decoupling translational and rotational effects on the phase synchronization of rotating helices The locomotion of swimming microorganisms often relies on synchronized motions; examples include the bundling of flagella and metachronal coordination of cilia. It is now generally accepted that such behavior can result from hydrodynamic interactions alone. In this paper we consider the interactions between…
Congrats to Tom Zajdel for a great job pulling this together. An analog electronics MOOC where you get to build a robot and learn basic EE.
I’ve been lax recently in updating our group site and more to come soon, but: 1) First data from Neural Dust effort now in JNM: Seo, D., Carmena, J. M., Rabaey, J. M., Maharbiz, M. M., & Alon, E. (2014). Model Validation of Untethered, Ultrasonic Neural Dust Motes for Cortical Recording. Journal of neuroscience methods.…
Some non-technical media; I post it because it presents a nice picture of why/how Jose Carmena and I worked with Wally Pfister on Transcendence (go see it!): http://www.latimes.com/entertainment/movies/moviesnow/la-et-mn-transcendence-movie-20140413,0,6032580.story#axzz2ybN4Fb7O
