Look at me when I'm talking to you: Selective attention at a multisensory cocktail party can be decoded using stimulus reconstruction and alpha power modulations.

Eur J Neurosci 2019 Apr 23. Epub 2019 Apr 23.

School of Engineering, Trinity Centre for Bioengineering and Trinity College Institute of Neuroscience, Trinity College Dublin, Dublin 2, Ireland.

Recent work using EEG has applied stimulus reconstruction techniques to identify the attended speaker in a cocktail party environment. The success of these approaches has been primarily based on the ability to detect cortical tracking of the acoustic envelope at the scalp level. However, most studies have ignored the effects of visual input, which is almost always present in naturalistic scenarios. Read More

Disconnecting bones within the jaw-otic network modules underlies mammalian middle ear evolution.

J Anat 2019 Apr 12. Epub 2019 Apr 12.

Paleobiology and Theoretical biology (Theoretical Biology), Cavanilles Institute of Biodiversity and Evolutionary Biology, University of Valencia, Valencia, Spain.

The origin of the mammalian middle ear ossicles from the craniomandibular articulation of their synapsid ancestors is a key event in the evolution of vertebrates. The richness of the fossil record and the multitude of developmental studies have provided a stepwise reconstruction of this evolutionary innovation, highlighting the homology between the quadrate, articular, pre-articular and angular bones of early synapsids with the incus, malleus, gonial and ectotympanic bones of derived mammals, respectively. There are several aspects involved in this functional exaptation: (i) an increase of the masticatory musculature; (ii) the separation of the quadrate bone from the cranium; and (iii) the disconnection of the post-dentary bones from the dentary.

Thermoresponsive Stiffness Softening of Hierarchically Porous Nanohybrid Membranes Promotes Niches for Mesenchymal Stem Cell Differentiation.

Adv Healthc Mater 2019 Apr 4:e1801556. Epub 2019 Apr 4.

Centre for Biomaterials in Surgical Reconstruction and Regeneration, Division of Surgery & Interventional Science, University College London, 2QG, 10 Pond St, London, NW3 2PS, UK.

Despite the attention given to the development of novel responsive implants for regenerative medicine applications, the lack of integration with the surrounding tissues and the mismatch with the dynamic mechanobiological nature of native soft tissues remain in the current products. Hierarchical porous membranes based on a poly (urea-urethane) (PUU) nanohybrid have been fabricated by thermally induced phase separation (TIPS) of the polymer solution at different temperatures. Thermoresponsive stiffness softening of the membranes through phase transition from the semicrystalline phase to rubber phase and reverse self-assembly of the quasi-random nanophase structure is characterized at body temperature near the melting point of the crystalline domains of soft segments.

Porous Polyethylene Ear Reconstruction.

Clin Plast Surg 2019 Apr 28;46(2):223-230. Epub 2018 Dec 28.

Craniofacial and Pediatric Plastic Surgery, Cedars Sinai Medical Center, 250 N. Robertson Boulevard, Suite 506, Beverly Hills, CA, 90211.

The use of a porous polyethylene implant covered with a well-vascularized fascial flap allows ear reconstruction at an early age (before school) with minimal morbidity and psychological trauma. Excellent outcomes with minimal morbidity can be obtained using this technique. This type of microtia reconstruction provides a more holistic approach because it is done at a younger age, in a single stage, as an outpatient and could address the functional hearing issues earlier.
