    A mathematical model consisting of a homogeneous spherical conductive medium was used to simulate the human head. A current dipole situated in the interior of the sphere produces, on the surface, a theoretical distribution of potential similar to certain EEG activities recorded on the human scalp. We propose a multi-stage method for computing the six parameters of a such virtual dipolar source by ... View full abstract»

    A closed-loop analog computer model for corticosterone dynamics in the male rat is presented in an attempt to examine some existing experimental evidence which suggests contradictory characteristics of the ACTH-glucocorticoid system. First-order compartmental kinetics model the removal of ACTH and corticosterone from the blood. Nonlinear models are used to describe the release of corticosterone by... View full abstract»

    A three-dimensional radiographic imaging system has been developed, and is presently being clinically evaluated. Twenty conventional radiographs are reduced and reprojected into a display volume according to a geometry which matches the X-ray source geometry. The images are integrated on a viewing screen and produce the tomographic plane corresponding to the screen's position. Planes parallel and ... View full abstract»

    In normal vision, eye movements cause the image to move on the retina. Special apparatus can stabilize the image on the retina so it cannot move, and vision fades away. Previous methods for stabilizing the image were either optical systems or complex computer-controlled feedback systems. A simpler feedback system is presented which detects eye motion and rotates a mirror through which the target i... View full abstract»

    A procedure is reported for determining vocal-fold closure using a technique of transmitting continuous-wave ultrasound through the larynx. A frequency of 3.2 MHz and an applied acoustic power of less than 1 mV/cm2 was used. Physiological interpretation of received signals is discussed in terms of glottal closure, vocal-fold thickness, vocal-fold vibratory pattern, and thyroid cartilage oss... View full abstract»

    A mock circulatory system (MCS) was constructed for testing intra-aortic balloon (IAB) temporary heart-assist devices. The MCS consists of a left heart analog, compliant arteries, peripheral resistance, and venous return. Design objectives and operating characteristics of the MCS are presented. The results of a number of studies to determine the effectiveness of intra-aortic balloon devices under ... View full abstract»

    A respirator control system based on a variant process model and optimization of system performance is described. The system attempts to minimize the harmful effects of positive pressure ventilation while meeting the ventilatory requirement of the patient. As alveolar pressure is indicative of respiratory dynamics, it has been used as control parameter. Desired alveolar pressure is derived from a ... View full abstract»

    The distribution of the heating potential generated by an incident electromagnetic plane wave on a conducting sphere simulating the human head was investigated. It was found that for a sphere of 10-cm radius having the same electrical characteristics as those of biological tissues, no hot spots are generated inside. While at lower frequencies the heating is relatively uniform with some polarizatio... View full abstract»

    A simple electronic circuit is proposed as an analog of the excitable membrane. It is based on the Hodgkin-Huxley model and their squid axon voltage clamp data. The simulated potassium and sodium conductances are reproduced satisfactorily and the electronic action potentials are very similar to the experimentally recorded ones. Since this analog contains only a few electronic elements, it is small... View full abstract»

    Ventricular fibrillation, a form of electrical instability of the myocardium, is strongly suspected to be a significant contributor to ``sudden'' coronary fatalities. Present evidence indicates that ventricular fibrillation is often preceded by other forms of abnormal electrical activity of the heart, especially ventricular premature beats (VPBs). Early detection of the presence of VPBs in the ele... View full abstract»
