Characterization of Auditory Evoked Potentials from Transient Binaural Beats Generated by Frequency Modulating Sound Stimuli

ABSTRACT

When two pure-tone (2T) stimuli with slightly different frequencies are presented independently to each ear, an auditory illusion, called binaural beats (BB), is perceived as a faint pulsation over a single tone. The frequency of the perceived tone Continue reading

Autonomous Brain-Controlled Functional Electrical Stimulation for Grasp and Release in Complete Cervical Spinal Cord Injury

ABSTRACT

There are over 33,000 people in the United States living with complete tetraplegia due to traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI). These individuals rely heavily on family and caregivers  as they are unable to perform many activities of daily living.People with Continue reading

Swept – Tone Evoked Otoacoustic Emissions: Stimulus Calibration and Equalization

ABSTRACT

Otoacoustic Emissions (OAE) are minute acoustic responses originating from the cochlea as a result of an external acoustic stimulus and are recorded using a sensitive microphone placed in the ear canal. OAEs are acquired by synchronous stimulation Continue reading

Multi Disciplinary Modeling , Control, and Optimization of a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell/Gas Turbine Hybrid Power System

ABSTRACT

This thesis describes a systematical study, including multidisciplinary modeling, simulation, control, and optimization, of a fuel cell– gas turbine hybrid power system that aims to  increase the system efficiency and decrease the energy costs Continue reading
