Purdue Newsroom — Sensor gives valuable data for neurological ...
WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. - A new biosensor developed at Purdue University can measure whether neurons are performing correctly when communicating with each other, giving researchers a tool to test the effectiveness of new epilepsy or seizure treatments. Marshall Porterfield, an associate professor of agricultural and biological engineering and biomedical engineering, postdoctoral researcher Eric McLamore, and graduate student Subhashree Mohanty developed the self-referencing glutamate biosensor to measure real-time glutamate flux of neural cells in a living organism. The nanosensor not only measures glutamate around neural cells, it ... market research, surveys and trends

Google Answers: Sweet Corn Canning - How do they get the Corn off ...
Hello GA! How does the industrial process for the removal of sweet corn from their cobs before being tinned work? I would like the name of the machine and a detailed description on the process and if possible any pictures would be very helpful. I have googled for this extensively and have found many references to the home canning and preparation of sweet corn but none which detail the process of this in a mass industrial environment where many thousand must be prepared in a short space of time. I have e-mailed a major producer of tinned sweet corn products, "The Jolly Green Giant", but have not yet had any response. They ...
Google Answers: Tree log drying while in storage
I need tables, or mathematical equations, that describe the drying rate (loss of moisture content over time) of logs while in log storage on land. Ideally this information is presented by tree species (major variable). Other variables may include log pile height, log length, log diameter, time of year (season/date). Dear hannsf-ga; Thank you for allowing me to answer your interesting question. I?m afraid what you are looking for isn?t going to be nearly as easy as a single table that lists the drying rates of all species of logs. There are far too many variables to consider and one has to do some fancy elbow work to ...
