    Electrical stimulation of the stomach and small intestine in animals has been shown to give a "pacing" effect, whereby the normal frequency of the myoelectrical slow-waves can be altered to that of the pulse stimulus if it has a frequency close to that of the natural rhythm. In this paper the effect of pulse stimulation on three different types of models used for gastrointestinal studies is invest... View full abstract»

    In order to obtain better estimates of the true evoked potential signal with fewer stimuli than is possible with classical signal averaging, the Wiener theory [16] for optimum linear filtering, as formulated by Walter [15] and Doyle [5], was implemented in four different versions of the Wiener filter-two a posteriori filters and two recursive filters. The effectiveness of the filters in separating... View full abstract»

    Human colonic electrical control activity (ECA) was recorded from 17 subjects postoperatively by chronically implanted electrodes. The ECA pattern showed phase-unlocked control waves with variable frequencies and waxing and waning amplitudes. This was modeled by a tubular structure of bidirectionally coupled rings of bidirectionally coupled synthesized relaxation oscillators. The model explores th... View full abstract»

  • Validity of an Arterial System Model: A Quantitative Evaluation

    The purpose of this investigation was to validate an arterial system model in a quantitative fashion. The model is based on a finite difference solution to the Navier-Stokes equations and retains certain nonlinear features of the system. Rather than apply standard error measures that test waveform correlation, the validation method used relies on the quantification of differences between the model... View full abstract»

    A computer system for real-time analysis of the electroencephalograph (EEG) is described. The system performs continuous analysis, with graphic, analog, and tabular outputs, and storage of selected samples on disk for off-line analysis. Implemented mostly in high-level software, it is based on a two-component model of the signal in which waves are detected by a combination zero-crossing and peak d... View full abstract»

  • A Theoretical Analysis of the Single Breath Diffusing Capacity for Carbon Monoxide

    We used a computerized lung model to examine methods of measuring the single breath diffusing capacity for carbon monoxide (DLCOSB). Although the single breath maneuver consists of inhalation, breath holding, and exhalation, current methods of measuring DLCOSB use one equation that is accurate only for breath holding, and they attempt to correct for the effects of inhalation and exhalation using a...

    An EEG signal improvement which uses a deconvolution technique is presented. One example where this technique has been used is shown. A noticeable improvement in time localization of peaks in an AER recording was demonstrated. View full abstract»

  • Defibrillation Recovery Curves for Different Electrode Materials

    We tested 16 electrode materials for their electrical characteristics and normalized all results to a 1 cm2 area. The electrode pair impedance versus frequency from 5 to 2000 Hz ranged from 20 to 58 000 Ω. We passed 2 mC through them in less than 5 ms to simulate defibrillation discharge. The resulting recovery curves showed voltage offsets after 5 s of from 300 to 800 mV. View full abstract»
