      Lu, Pengfei; Veletic, Mladen; Laasmaa, Martin; Vendelin, Marko; Louch, William Edward; Halvorsen, Per Steinar; Bergsland, Jacob; Balasingham, Ilangko (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      There is continuous interest in maximizing the longevity of implantable pacemakers, which are effective in remedying and managing patients with arrhythmic heart disease. This paper accordingly first proposes miniature ...
    • Neural response analysis for brain-machine interfaces 

      Stenwig, Eline; Veletic, Mladen; Balasingham, Ilangko (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Neurological disorders such as Alzheimers and Parkinsons diseases are associated with malfunctioning neurons, and neuronal signaling and communication pathways. Restoring the neuronal function is considered one of the ...
    • On the Neural Communication for Data Transmission in Nano-Networks 

      Veletic, Mladen (Doctoral theses at NTNU;2017:179, Doctoral thesis, 2017)
      Nano-networks are engineered systems for performing communication at the nano-scale. They are achieved through physical mechanisms suitable at this scale, including electromagnetism and electrochemical transport. From the ...
    • Synaptic Communication Engineering for Future Cognitive Brain-machine Interfaces 

      Veletic, Mladen; Balasingham, Ilangko (Journal article; Peer reviewed, 2019)
      Disease-affected nervous systems exhibit anatomical or physiological impairments that degrade processing, transfer, storage, and retrieval of neural information leading to physical or intellectual disabilities. Brain ...
    • Theoretical aspects of resting-state cardiomyocyte communication for multi-nodal nano-actuator pacemakers 

      Lu, Pengfei; Veletic, Mladen; Bergsland, Jacob; Balasingham, Ilangko (Peer reviewed; Journal article, 2020)
      The heart consists of billions of cardiac muscle cells—cardiomyocytes—that work in a coordinated fashion to supply oxygen and nutrients to the body. Inter-connected specialized cardiomyocytes form signaling channels through ...
