How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

Rett syndrome (RTT) is a neurodevelopmental disorder caused mostly by mutations in the MECP2 gene. RTT patients show periodical hypoventilation attacks. The breathing disorder contributing to the high incidence of sudden death is thought to be due to depressed central inspiratory (I) activity via unknown cellular processes. Demonstration of such pr...
Human induced pluripotent stem cell-derived cardiomyocytes (hiPSC-CMs) have significantly advanced in vitro cardiac safety and disese modeling, yet remain an immature representation of human myocytes. Electrical or mechanical conditioning of hiPSC-CMs facilitates functional maturation, as measured by a positive force-frequency relationship, but cur...
The cardiac action potential (AP) is vital for understanding healthy and diseased cardiac biology and drug safety testing. However, techniques for high throughput cardiac AP measurements have been limited. Here, we introduce a novel technique for reliably increasing the coupling of cardiomyocyte syncytium to planar multiwell microelectrode arrays,...
People with Rett Syndrome (RTT), a neurodevelopmental disorder caused by mutations in the MECP2 gene, have breathing abnormalities manifested as periodical hypoventilation with compensatory hyperventilation, which are attributable to a high incidence of sudden death. Similar breathing abnormalities have been found in animal models with Mecp2 disrup...
We report on microfabrication and assembly process development on transparent, biocompatible polymers for patterning electrodes and growing electrically active cells for in vitro cell-based biosensor applications. Such biosensors are typically fabricated on silicon or glass wafers with traditional microelectronic processes that can be cost-prohibit...
The sensation of pain is transmitted from nociceptive nerve endings to the central nervous system along axons of neurons in the dorsal root ganglion (DRG). Damage to these primary afferents, or inherited defects in the proteins underlying their electrical or sensory function, can cause neuropathic pain, a persistent sensation of pain caused by incr...
