A wineglass has been used as an acoustic resonator to enhance the photoacoustic signal generated by laser excitation of absorbing dyes in solution. The amplitude of the acoustic signal was recorded using a fiber-optic transducer based on a Fabry-Pérot cavity attached to the rim of the wineglass. The optical and acoustic properties of the setup were characterized, and it was used to quantify the concentration of phosphomolybdenum blue and methyl red solutions. Detection limits of 1.2 ppm and 8 muM were obtained, respectively.

EFFECTS OF MUSIC ON THE PAIN RESPONSE IN THE CENTRAL NERVOUS SYSTEM USING FUNCTIONAL MAGNETIC RESONANCE IMAGING Dobek, Christine Elizabeth (2013-06-18)The oldest procedure for pain relief has been music. There is abundant behavioural evidence to support music’s pain relieving properties, however, studies to date have yet to investigate music-induced analgesia via imaging. ...

Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging of Peripheral Neuropathic Pain in the Spinal Cord and Brainstem Leitch, Jordan Kelly (2010-08-06)To date, most studies investigating the neural signature of pain in humans have focused on the brain, and those studies concerned with more caudal areas (such as the spinal cord (SC) or brainstem) have used only experimental ...
