Not everyone who managed to change the world is famous…it is possible to do something absolutely, monumentally world-shaking and not receive any recognition for it… I'll give you a name: Vasyli Arkipov…it's possible that this guy is the only reason any of us are still alive…seriously… October 27, 1962…it's the height of the Cuban missile crisis…the soviets had nukes in Cuba aimed at the u.s. and more were on the way…John Kennedy responded by setting up a blockade around the island… The USS Randolph was one of the ships in charge of enforcing the blockade…they spotted a Soviet sub that was sent to protect the flotilla of Russian ships approaching the island with more missiles on board…this one particular sub—a Foxtrot class b-59—was armed with nuclear missiles…Arkhipov was the second in command… The Randolph began dropping depth charges in an effort to get the sub to surface…b-59 suffered damage…the crew couldn't breathe…they wanted to fight back…the sub commander tried to raise soviet command for permission to fire—but he couldn't reach them… Because they'd been cruising submerged for days, they hadn't heard anything from Soviet high command…but they had been monitoring American civil broadcasts which offered non-stop coverage of the crisis…and now they were under attack…maybe the war had finally begun…if that was the case, shouldn't they launch their missiles?... Captain Valentín Savitsky was in favour of an attack…so was political officer Ivan Maslennikov…but in order to launch the nukes, Stavisky and Maslennikov also needed agreement from Arkhipov…“what do you say, Vasyli?...do we engage the Americans with our special weapon?”… Vasyli took a breath and replied “nyet…we do not fire…we have no proof that we are at war…what if we're wrong?...if we launch, we risk starting an all-our nuclear war and  wipe out all life on the planet”… The commander wasn't happy with that, but rules were rules and he ordered that the crew stand down…no nuke would be fired that day…and when the sub did surface, it was confirmed that hostilities had not broken out…this is why Vasyli Arkipov is widely regarded as the man who single-handedly prevented a global nuclear war on October 27, 1962…yet how many people know his name?... Now let's take a big pivot into music…what kind of unsung heroes might we find there?... See omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

Decoding spoken English phonemes from intracortical electrode arrays in dorsal precentral gyrus

Link to bioRxiv paper: http://biorxiv.org/cgi/content/short/2020.06.30.180935v1?rss=1 Authors: Wilson, G. H., Stavisky, S. D., Willett, F. R., Avansino, D. T., Kelemen, J. N., Hochberg, L. R., Henderson, J. M., Druckmann, S., Shenoy, K. V. Abstract: To evaluate the potential of intracortical electrode array signals for brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) to restore lost speech, we measured the performance of classifiers trained to discriminate a comprehensive basis set for speech: 39 English phonemes. We classified neural correlates of spoken-out-loud words in the "hand knob" area of precentral gyrus, which we view as a step towards the eventual goal of decoding attempted speech from ventral speech areas in patients who are unable to speak. Neural and audio data were recorded while two BrainGate2 pilot clinical trial participants, each with two chronically-implanted 96-electrode arrays, spoke 420 different words that broadly sampled English phonemes. Phoneme onsets were identified from audio recordings, and their identities were then classified from neural features consisting of each electrode's binned action potential counts or high-frequency local field potential power. We also examined two potential confounds specific to decoding overt speech: acoustic contamination of neural signals and systematic differences in labeling different phonemes' onset times. A linear decoder achieved up to 29.3% classification accuracy (chance = 6%) across 39 phonemes, while a recurrent neural network classifier achieved 33.9% accuracy. Parameter sweeps indicated that performance did not saturate when adding more electrodes or more training data, and that accuracy improved when utilizing time-varying structure in the data. Microphonic contamination and phoneme onset differences modestly increased decoding accuracy, but could be mitigated by acoustic artifact subtraction and using a neural speech onset marker, respectively. The ability to decode a comprehensive set of phonemes using intracortical electrode array signals from a nontraditional speech area suggests that placing electrode arrays in ventral speech areas is a promising direction for speech BCIs.

The neural representation of force across grasp types in motor cortex of humans with tetraplegia

Link to bioRxiv paper: http://biorxiv.org/cgi/content/short/2020.06.01.126755v1?rss=1 Authors: Rastogi, A., Willett, F. R., Abreu, J., Crowder, D. C., Murphy, B., Memberg, W. D., Vargas-Irwin, C. E., Miller, J. P., Sweet, J., Walter, B. L., Rezaii, P. G., Stavisky, S. D., Hochberg, L. R., Shenoy, K. V., Henderson, J. M., Kirsch, R. F., Ajiboye, A. B. Abstract: Intracortical brain-computer interfaces (iBCIs) have the potential to restore hand grasping and object interaction to individuals with tetraplegia. Optimal grasping and object interaction require simultaneous production of both force and grasp outputs. However, since overlapping neural populations are modulated by both parameters, grasp type could affect how well forces are decoded from motor cortex in a closed-loop force iBCI. Therefore, this work quantified the neural representation and offline decoding performance of discrete hand grasps and force levels in two participants with tetraplegia. Participants attempted to produce three discrete forces (light, medium, hard) using up to five hand grasp configurations. A two-way Welch ANOVA was implemented on multiunit neural features to assess their modulation to force and grasp. Demixed principal component analysis was used to assess for population-level tuning to force and grasp and to predict these parameters from neural activity. Three major findings emerged from this work: 1) Force information was neurally represented and could be decoded across multiple hand grasps (and, in one participant, across attempted elbow extension as well); 2) Grasp type affected force representation within multi-unit neural features and offline force classification accuracy; and 3) Grasp was classified more accurately and had greater population-level representation than force. These findings suggest that force and grasp have both independent and interacting representations within cortex, and that incorporating force control into real-time iBCI systems is feasible across multiple hand grasps if the decoder also accounts for grasp type.

CIRD complex, historically termed “kennel cough”, is a relatively common presentation in UK primary care veterinary practice. Jenny Stavisky, clinical assistant professor in shelter medicine at the University of Nottingham’s School of Veterinary Medicine and Science, discusses its prevalence, presentation and prevention in this Vet Times Podcast. – Jenny authored the article “Kennel cough: a cough by any other name?”, which appeared in Veterinary Times Volume 50, Issue 6 (4 February 2020 issue) on pages 9-10. It is online at www.vettimes.co.uk/article/kennel-cough-a-cough-by-any-other-name/ Michael Day, emeritus professor of veterinary pathology at the University of Bristol and a member of the board of the WSAVA, has also authored a feature on CIRD in Volume 50 Issue 11 (10 March issue) on pages 8-10. It is called “Complexities of canine infectious respiratory disease” and will also be available to view on vettimes.co.uk Jenny Stavisky qualified from the University of Edinburgh in 2002 , and, following several years in mixed practice, conducted a PhD in epidemiology and virology at the University of Liverpool, entitled “Studies on prevalence and risk factors for canine coronavirus infection in the UK“. Following a brief spell in clinical practice, she joined the School of Veterinary Medicine and Science at the University of Nottingham in July 2010. In 2013, she began a clinical lectureship in shelter medicine, a growing veterinary discipline centred around the care of large populations of animals in rescue shelters and charity practices. She is a founding member of the Association of Charity Vets and co-editor of the BSAVA Manual of Shelter Medicine. She instigated and runs Vets in the Community (along with a lot of help from colleagues, students and The Big Issue). This project has been providing free veterinary care to homeless and vulnerably housed pet owners in the Nottingham area since 2012.
