    The author discusses the mechanisms of speech production, focusing on the measurement of its motor aspects. He examines the multiple representation levels at which physiological events that underlie speech production can be investigated, and examines measurement of neuromuscular activity, structure movement (e.g. kinematics and dynamics), aerodynamic phenomena, and/or the acoustic output. He descr... View full abstract»

    Results of the investigation of the viability of using a coherent optical processor to improve image quality prior to digitization and analysis are presented. Optical processing of small (20 mm*20 mm) and large (100 mm*100 mm) radiological images to improve contrast and enhance edges is demonstrated. A brief summary of the principle of operation of the coherent optical processor is given. Results ... View full abstract»

    Studies of electrical injury are described in which the electrical field associated with the current is shown to be a source of damage, in addition to heat. It is shown that this result explains clinical observations that connective tissue is not harmed during electrical accidents, while skeletal muscles are destroyed. The researchers identified three cell categories, exhibiting three distinct typ... View full abstract»
