Abstract Full Text

In this work we report two successful cases of developing neural networks of spiking neurons for controlling mobile robots. In the first case we use a toy robot, a crocodile, driven by a neural network in-silico. We show that this so-called neuroanimat is capable of detecting internal events of synchronization of network responses to stimuli. In the second example we employ a spiking neural network for building a human-robot interface. Using a bracelet with eight electromyographic sensors we have shown that the interface can faithfully detect myographic signals, classify them according to hand gestures, and send the corresponding commands to the robot. Although the two applications belong to different areas of Neuroscience, they are based on a common approach of neural computations. We note that in both cases besides neural networks there are no additional external algorithms for the decision-making.

The study was designed to investigate the effect of verapamil on the speed of propagation of electrical excitation in the myocardium. As a result, it was found that verapamil reduces heart rate, the speed of excitation in the myocardium remains unchanged. The results obtained allow us to estimate the effect of verapamil on the condition of cardiac tissue, based on the change in its conductivity during treatment with the drug.

Abstract Full Text

Single episode of generalized tonic-clonic seizures induced by pentylenetetrazole led to slowly developing memory impairments in rats, accompanied by elimination of excessive newly generated young cells which were born in the hippocampus soon after the seizures and transient activation of microglial cells in this neurogenic niche.
