The clinical features of photoaging include: skin texture changes, laxity, rhytides, pigmentary changes, and vascular changes such as erythema and telangiectasias. In order to meet patients' increasing demands for improving all aspects of photoaging at one office visit, employing a multi-modality treatment for all aspects of photoaging has become increasingly desirable for the physician and patient alike. We examine a novel device that employs bipolar radiofrequency (RF), intense pulsed light (IPL), and infrared diode laser...

PURPOSE: Recurrence of atrial fibrillation (AF) after pulmonary vein isolation (PVI) is mainly due to PV reconnections. Patient-specific tissue characteristics that may contribute remain unidentified. This study aimed to assess the relationship between the bipolar electrogram voltage amplitudes recorded from the PV-left atrial (LA) junction and acute PV reconnection sites. METHODS: Three-dimensional LA voltage maps created before an extensive encircling PVI in 47 AF patients (31 men; mean age 62 ± 11 years) were examined for an association between the EGM voltage amplitude recorded from the PV-LA junction and acute post-PVI PV reconnections (spontaneous PV reconnections and/or ATP-provoked dormant PV conduction)...

In this paper a simple prediction method for the bipolar pulse cancellation effect is proposed, based on the frequency analysis of the TMP spectra of a single cell and the computed relative global spectral content up to a defined frequency threshold. We present a spectral analysis of pulses applied in experiments, and we extract the induced TMP from a microdosimetric model of the cell. The induced TMP computation is carried out on a hemispherical multi-layered cell model in the time domain. The analysis is presented for a variety of unipolar and bipolar input signals in the nanosecond and the microsecond time scales...

Spin-orbit torque (SOT) induced by electric current has attracted extensive attention as an efficient method of controlling the magnetization in nanomagnetic structures. SOT-induced magnetization reversal is usually achieved with the aid of an in-plane bias magnetic field. In this paper, we show that by selecting a film stack with weak out-of-plane magnetic anisotropy, field-free SOT-induced switching can be achieved in micron sized multilayers. Using direct current, deterministic bipolar magnetization reversal is obtained in Pt/[Co/Ni]2/Co/Ta structures...

Recent studies have demonstrated the safety and efficacy of ocular gene therapy based on adeno-associated viral vectors (AAVs). Accordingly, a surge in promising new gene therapies is entering clinical trials, including the first optogenetic therapy for vision restoration. To date, optogenetic therapies for vision restoration target either the retinal ganglion cells (GCs) or presynaptic ON-bipolar cells (OBCs). Initiating light responses at the level of the OBCs has significant advantages over optogenetic activation of GCs...

AIMS: In the literature, psychomotor retardation (PMR) is increasingly highlighted as a relevant marker for depression. Currently, we chose to focus on the fluency capacities as an evaluation of the frontal lobes functioning to reach a better understanding of cognitive and neurobiological mechanisms involved in PMR in depression. The aims of this study were 1) to explore the cognitive component of PMR through the analysis of Verbal Fluency (VF) performance in unipolar and bipolar depression; 2) to examine whether a repetitive transcranial magnetic stimulation (rTMS) treatment can improve concomitantly the RPM and VF capacities, as a relevant marker characteristic of the cognitive component of PMR...

By combining a viologen unit and a 2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-1-oxyl (TEMPO) radical in one single combi-molecule, an artificial bipolar redox-active material, 1-(4-(((1-oxyl-2,2,6,6-tetramethylpiperidin-4-yl)oxy)carbonyl)benzyl)-1'-methyl-[4,4'-bipyridine]-1,1'-diium-chloride (VIOTEMP), was created that can serve as both the anode (-0.49 V) and cathode (0.67 V vs. Ag/AgCl) in a water-based redox-flow battery. While it mimics the redox states of flow battery metals like vanadium, the novel aqueous electrolyte does not require strongly acidic media and is best operated at pH 4...
