In studies of human movement control, an important question is how the central nervous system (CNS) controls movements in the presence of a large number of degrees of freedom (DoFs) at all levels of the control architecture. It is known that CNS groups the multiple...

Many difficulties are encountered by people with disabilities, especially when a diagnosis is made up of more than one dysfunction, as is the case of visually impaired wheelchair users. In fact, this scenario generates a degree of incapacity in terms of the performing...

Zeta potential, defined as the electric charge at the shear plane, is widely used as a proxy parameter for bacterial cell surface charge. Nonspecific adsorption of ions or polyelectrolytes onto the cell surface, however, alters the value and polarity of the measured...

The characteristics of the culture vessel determine, to a large extent, the type of growth medium suitable for use. For example, most growth media for high cell density cultivation are designed for expensive bioreactors operating either in continuous or fed-batch...

We investigated the structure and properties of PCL10 nanofiber, PCL5/PCL10 core-shell type nanofibers, as well as PCL5/PCLAg nanofibres prepared by electrospinning. For the production of the fibre variants, a 5-10% solution of polycaprolactone (Mw = 70000-90000),...
