Electrically Conductive Nanofibers with Highly Oriented Structures and their Potential Application in Skeletal Muscle Tissue Engineering
Mei-Chin Chen

Providing cells with the appropriate and multiple environmental stimuli is essential to the success of the tissue engineering approach. This study introduces highly aligned and electrically conductive nanofibers that can simultaneously provide topographical and electrical cues for cells were developed. Thereafter, their potential to serve as functional scaffolds for skeletal muscle tissue …

Learning to Listen: Effects of Using Conversational Transcripts to Help Medical Students Improve Their Use of Open Questions in Soliciting Patient Problems
Mei-hui Tsai

In medical interview, physician’s task in gathering a full perspective of patient problems is often hindered by two common communication barriers: ‘patients with hidden agendas’, i.e., patients who prefer to postpone voicing their concerns until the end of the encounter[1] , and ‘doctor-patient non-concordance’, i.e., doctors do not always share the same perspective as their patients …

Temporal and Spatial Properties of Arterial Pulsation Measurement Using Pressure Sensor Array
Ching-Hsing Luo

The aim of this work proposed an innovative method to observe the characteristics of wrist artery under temporal and spatial domain. Conventionally, piezo-resistive transducer, piezoelectric ceramic or Polyvinylidene Difluoride (PVDF) were used to obtain the signals of wrist artery. However, the detective element size of the sensors above is too large to building an array sensor to acquire the …
