surgical electronics technologyUniversity of Illinois researchers, in collaboration with the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and Northwestern University developed a flexible sensor array that can wrap around the heart to map large areas of tissue at once. This technique will make a breakthrough in surgical electronics technology.

The array contains 2,016 silicon nanomembrane transistors, each monitoring electricity coursing through a beating heart.

After demonstrating the transistor array on the beating hearts of live pigs, a common model for human hearts, a high-resolution, real-time display of the pigs' pulsing cardiac tissues - something never before possible.

"As the first class of flexible electronics that can directly integrate with bodily tissues," Co-senior author John Rogers, the Lee J. Flory-Founder Chair in Engineering Innovation and a professor of materials science and engineering at Illinois, said.

These signals are relayed buying clomid online safe which then is by a number of such as medial preoptic and paraventricular nulcei.
