  • Publication number: 20210248348
    Abstract: Provided is a method of granting access, including compiling a training profile of each of two or more persons, wherein the training profile includes one or more oculomotor features exhibited during one or more tasks, associating a training profile of one of the two or more persons with a permission, detecting a testing profile of one of the two or more persons, wherein the testing profile includes one or more of the one or more oculomotor features exhibited by during one or more of the one or more tasks, identifying a target profile, granting access if and only if the target profile is associated with the permission, wherein the one or more tasks are selected from fixation, saccade speed, saccade accuracy, visually-guided saccades, anti-saccades, memory-guided saccades, free viewing, pursuit.

  • Publication number: 20210161383
    Abstract: Provided is a method of detecting neural activity, including inducing neurons of a subject to express two or more polypeptides each comprising an amino acid sequence represented by one of SEQ ID NOs:13-24, wherein inducing comprises stimulating interneuronally different relative levels of expression of the two or more polypeptides; applying coelenterazine to the subject; applying a first stimulation of neural activity to the subject; detecting a first spatiotemporal and spectral pattern of electromagnetic radiation emitted by neurons of the subject in response to the first stimulation; recording the first spatiotemporal and spectral pattern of electromagnetic radiation in a computer memory; applying a second stimulation of neural activity to the subject; detecting a second spatiotemporal and spectral pattern of electromagnetic radiation emitted by neurons of the subject in response to the second stimulation; comparing the second spatiotemporal and spectral pattern of electromagnetic radiation to the first spa

  • Publication number: 20200093474
    Abstract: Provided is an implant, including a chamber having an interior radius wherein the interior radius has a flange, a cover slip, a cup, a setting member, a securing member, a resistance member, and an opposing member, wherein the cover slip, cup, resisting member, and setting member are attached to one another, the setting member sets on a flange and the securing member secures the setting member to the flange, the resistance member includes a flexibility and a longitudinal axis with a length wherein the flexibility permits modification of the length, and the opposing member sets a minimum length of the longitudinal axis. Also provided is a method of using said implant including affixing the chamber to a skull of a mammal.

  • Publication number: 20040076434
    Abstract: An optical network has an optical bus interconnecting a plurality of sources with a plurality of loads. Each source has a tunable laser for transmitting signals at a selective wavelength and each load has a tunable filter for receiving signals at a selective wavelength. As a result, through a single connection per node and a single bus, each source can exchange signals with any load. The optical network employs a passive optical interface device for routing signals between a node and a bus. The optical interface device provides balanced amplification of the optical signals throughout the network. The optical network is able to distribute RF and other analog signals to multiple nodes while preserving signal quality.
