  10. Optimizing affinity measures for parcellating brain structures based on resting state fMRI data: A validation on medial superior frontal cortex

    Journal of Neuroscience Methods 237:90 (2014) PMID 25224735

    Parcellating brain structures into functionally homogeneous subregions based on resting state fMRI data could be achieved by grouping image voxels using clustering algorithms, such as normalized cut. The affinity between brain voxels adopted in the clustering algorithms is typically characterize...
  11. Development of a new clot formation protocol for standardized in vitro investigations of sonothrombolysis

    Journal of Neuroscience Methods 237:26 (2014) PMID 25193162

    Background Agreement about the most suitable clot formation protocol for sonothrombolysis investigations is lacking. Lysis rates vary strongly owing to different test conditions and, thus, cannot be compared. We aim to establish a simple but physiologically grounded protocol ...
