Delivery to Brainhttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/28420Central nervous system and brain diseases impact almost 1 billion people per year with approximately 7 million related deaths worldwide. A major challenge to treating these types of diseases is the ability for therapeutics to cross the blood-brain and blood cerebrospinal barriers. These barriers make it extremely difficult to deliver therapies to the brain, which is the primary target for these diseases. Thus, there is an unmet need for novel treatments that can decrease mortality and morbidity of this large disease population. The developed technology consists of a novel bio-adhesive drug sca...Wed, 08 Aug 2018 08:33:39 GMTtechdevelop@fau.eduhttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/28420Systems and Methods for Federated Power Managementhttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/28413Tue, 07 Aug 2018 06:52:01 GMTtechdevelop@fau.eduhttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/28413Carbamathione, S-(N, N-diethylcarbamoyl) Glutathioneas, as a Novel Agent for the Treatment of Strokehttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/28409A 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...Tue, 07 Aug 2018 06:48:44 GMTtechdevelop@fau.eduhttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/28409System and Method for Real Time Assessment of Levels of Learning and Adaptive Instruction Deliveryhttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/28408Tue, 07 Aug 2018 06:48:24 GMTtechdevelop@fau.eduhttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/28408Alternating Angle Controlled Wavelength Lighting System to Stimulate Feeding in Larval Fishhttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/28406Raising 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...Tue, 07 Aug 2018 06:47:43 GMTtechdevelop@fau.eduhttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/28406MEMS Microdisplay Optical Imaging and Sensor Systems for Underwater Scattering Environmentshttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/28405An 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.Tue, 07 Aug 2018 06:47:23 GMTtechdevelop@fau.eduhttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/28405Methods For Producing Cultured Pearls In Conch and Other Gastropodshttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/28404Prior 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.Tue, 07 Aug 2018 06:46:38 GMTtechdevelop@fau.eduhttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/28404Adaptive Driving Mode in Semi or Fully Autonomous Carshttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/27977In a recent survey, 55% of American drivers surveyed said they are not likely to consider a driverless car when they are available. 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...Mon, 25 Jun 2018 11:01:38 GMTtechdevelop@fau.eduhttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/27977System and Method for Localizing Cardiac Arrhythmia Sources Using Multi-Pole Sensorshttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/27976Atrial 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, 25 Jun 2018 10:39:11 GMTtechdevelop@fau.eduhttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/27976Adaptive Mood Control in Semi or Fully Autonomous Vehicleshttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/26993Tue, 30 Jan 2018 11:53:58 GMTtechdevelop@fau.eduhttp://inteumtp.technologypublisher.com/technology/26993
