  3. Error Reduction in Dipole-Source Localization Models

    SBC: ABRATECH CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): We are developing means to reduce errors in Dipole Source Localization (DSL). DSL is commonly used to analyze brain waves for clinical and research purposes. It is known from our work and the work of others that the models used to compute the DSL are not perfect, but it is not known how much the imperfect models affect the solutions obtained. Based upon our ...

  5. Genetic Assay for Inhibitors of RNA-Protein Interactions


    RNA-protein interactions play critical roles in cellular regulatory processes and in the life cycles of many pathogenic viruses including HIV, hepatitis C, SARS, and West Nile virus, and thus represent attractive targets for therapeutics. We have developed novel cell-based assays to identify drugs that target the RNA-protein interactions. The assays incorporate a system of genetic reporters to acc ...

  6. High throughput screen of behavior using piezo-imaging

    SBC: AFASCI, INC.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Neurobehavioral assessments, including arousal activity level and sleep pattern, are endpoints of global nervous system function. Virtually all pathological conditions, particularly neuropsychological disorders such as anxiety and depression, and a variety of different classes of drugs, can lead to the alteration of behavior and disturbance of sleep. Although a ...

  9. Gamma Secretase Assays to Discover Drugs for Alzheimer's


    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a long-term, debilitating disorder that causes loss of memory and cognitive functions. There is an urgent need for effective therapeutic agents to ameliorate the symptoms of AD. Important molecular drug targets in AD are the gamma-secretases that produce the neurotoxic Abeta peptides in AD. The regulated secretory pathway of neurons ...
