The compounds were also subjected to a post-synaptic transmission assay. Of the compounds tested, two compounds demonstrated potent neuroprotective properties relative to resveratrol. One of disclosed compounds provided extended time to synaptic failure by approximately 100 minutes. Another compound allowed the synapse under study to maintain 80% of its normal function even under declining oxidative conditions.

These respondents stated they do not trust that an autonomous car could adapt to the variety of potential road conditions and hazards. An interactive system that would allow autonomous vehicles to co-drive vehicles with the operator while also learning the driving style and habits of the driver could help lessen concerns of drivers. This invention is an adaptive driving mode (ADM) that helps autonomous systems learn driving styles of the operator. The ADM is turne...Tue, 30 Jan 2018 11:52:31 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu and Methods for Federated Power Management, 30 Jan 2018 11:49:47 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu 3D-Printed Flexible Polymer Esophagus Stent for Esophageal Cancer, 30 Jan 2018 11:47:05 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu, S-(N, N-diethylcarbamoyl) Glutathioneas, as a Novel Agent for the Treatment of Stroke cerebral ischemia, or stroke as it is more commonly known, is a condition where there is insufficient blood flow to the brain to meet proper metabolic functions. Thus, this condition deprives brain tissue of oxygen and nutrients, which causes cells in the brain to die within minutes. This technology is a novel treatment for stroke, which has neuroprotective properties that can benefit stroke patients. Carbamathione is a metabolite of Disulfiram and functions as a glutamate antagonist. This compound affects brain function and, consequently, has a neuroprotective function under specific condit...Wed, 24 Jan 2018 08:27:57 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu and Method for Real Time Assessment of Levels of Learning and Adaptive Instruction Delivery, 24 Jan 2018 08:26:20 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu and Methods for Larval Fish Enumeration and Growth Monitoring, 24 Jan 2018 06:57:19 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu and Methods for Irrigation Monitoring and Leak Detection current systems utilized for monitoring fluid flow and leaks in irrigation systems in residential and commercial buildings is ineffective, which results in missed leaks. These missed leaks can cause substantial damage to property along with a hefty price tag to repair both the water damage and irrigation system. This technology provides a more ideal system for monitoring fluid flow and detecting leaks in above and flow ground irrigation systems. Additionally, the technology requires no power, as it harvests and uses energy from the fluid in the pipes while simultaneously measuring and repo...Mon, 04 Dec 2017 11:15:35 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu and Method for Guiding a Multi-Pole Sensor Catheter to Locate Cardiac Arrhythmia Sources, 04 Dec 2017 11:09:45 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu and Method for Localizing Cardiac Arrhythmia Sources Using Multi-Pole Sensors fibrillation (AF) is the most common type of heart arrhythmia, which is when the heart beats too slowly, too fast, or in an irregular way. AF can be treated through a procedure known as ablation, which destroys a small area of heart tissue that is the source of the irregular heartbeats. One of the challenges associated with ablation is that it can be difficult to detect the exact source of the AF. This technology allows for the generation of an AF ablation target map by utilizing a conventional multi-pole diagnostic catheter (MPDC) in the atria. The ablation target map reveals the locat...Mon, 04 Dec 2017 11:06:18 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu Angle Controlled Wavelength Lighting System to Stimulate Feeding in Larval Fish marine fish on a commercial scale is difficult due to a variety of issues. One of which is the feeding of newly hatched fish fry in captivity due to either rejection of feeding or inadequate diet. This technology is an LED lighting system designed to illuminate dry pellet food in the water to mimic moving live food for newly hatched fish fry. Both visual recognition of food and the UV spectrum play a role in how fish fry detects prey items. By illuminating the dry food, the fry can identify a food source more easily by exaggerating the contrast between the food and the background. Curr...Mon, 04 Dec 2017 10:59:44 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu For Producing Cultured Pearls In Conch and Other Gastropods to the development of this technology, there was no method for culturing pearls in conch and other gastropods. This novel method overcomes the challenge of extracting the pearl without killing the conch, which was previously a daunting task because of the odd shape of the animal. Additionally, this unique process allows for a large number of pearls (upwards of 500) to be produced. This technology ultimately provides the gem industry with an environmentally-friendly and commercially viable way to produce a new cultured pearl.Fri, 01 Dec 2017 07:13:55 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu Microdisplay Optical Imaging and Sensor Systems for Underwater Scattering Environments imaging and sensor system that provides the ability to acquire images with improved quality from underwater environments. This novel system reduces unwanted scattering volume while improving the signal to noise ratio to yield superior images compared to current technologies. Additionally, the design is a more compact, reliable, and cost effective synchronized laser image system while retaining high signal to noise ratio. The technology has application in systems such as flash light detection and ranging systems and laser line scanner systems.Wed, 19 Apr 2017 06:28:50 GMTtechdevelop@fau.edu
