Oxygen diffusion through oil is important in the culture of oocytes and embryos. A diffusion coefficient two orders of magnitude smaller than that of oxygen in water has been thought possible, and this has led to concerns of anoxia in

Tools enabling closed-loop experiments are crucial to delineate causal relationships between the activity of genetically labeled neurons and specific behaviors. We developed the Raspberry Pi Virtual Reality (PiVR) system to conduct closed-loop optogenetic stimulation of neural functions in unrestrained animals.

The electrochemical oxidation of a hemorheologic drug, pentoxifylline was investigated at a multi-walled carbon nanotubes-paraffin oil paste electrode using cyclic and differential pulse voltammetry. The oxidation process was irreversible over the pH range studied and exhibited an adsorption-controlled behavior. All
