  • Use of Spatial Deconvolution to Compensate for Distortion of EEG by Volume Conduction

    EEG waves recorded with electrode arrays on the brain surface give spatial patterns of cortical neural activity that are smoothed by the volume conductor properties of brain tissue. If the geometry of the EEG generators is known, the smoothing process can be described quantitatively, and the spatial patterns of underlying neural activity can be restored within limits imposed by noise and instrumen...

  • A Comparative Model Study of Respiratory Period Prediction on Men Exercising While Wearing Masks

    Four competing models were tested to determine which model assumptions were necessary to successfully predict respiratory period. Data from a number of sources were used to calibrate the models. All models were found to be sensitive to data inhomogeneity. Minimization of total respiratory power and inspiratory power was found to yield nearly equivalent results except where a limitation on exhalati... View full abstract»

  • Static Behavior of Accommodation and Vergence: Computer Simulation of an Interactive Dual-Feedback System

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):439 - 447

    The complex static behavior of accommodation (focusing) and vergence (eye-turn) of the human eye was modeled as an interactive dual-feedback system. Accommodative and vergence biases accounted for responses under the no stimulus condition. Analytical expressions were derived for relating the linear parameters in the model such as controller and cross gains to variables whose values could be obtain... View full abstract»

  • Analog Storage of M-Mode Echocardiograph Signals Using Video Tape

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (2502 KB)

    Wide-band electrical signals representing the intensity of returning ultrasound echoes as a function of time may be stored and reproduced with excellent fidelity using standard videotape equipment, by adding appropriate synchronization pulses during intervals when the echo signal itself is quiescent. These pulses control the speed of the tape heads relative to the tape during recording, and the ge... View full abstract»

  • Thermal Response Model of a Simulated Cranial Structure Exposed to Radiofrequency Radiation

    Cited by:  Papers (4)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (3368 KB)

    A thermal response model of a simulated cranial structure (multilayered sphere) exposed to radiofrequency radiation (RFR) has been developed and experimentally verified for the no blood flow case. The thermal response model considers the RFR energy absorption distribution as predicted through use of the Mie theory, the thermal properties of the many layers, the blood flow to the central core area,...

    Cited by:  Papers (11)  |  Patents (6)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (4198 KB)

    A radio-frequency-powered rectangular cage (1 m ×0.75 m ×0.75 m) has been designed to power a biotelemetry transmitter implanted in animals. Electromagnetic coupling is used in place of conventional batteries to supply dc power to the implant, thus extending the lifetime of the implant unit indefinitely. The same frequency is used for both RF powering and signal transmisision by a time-sharing s... View full abstract»

    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (2828 KB)

    An inexpensive, high resolution optical scanner is described. This scanner has been designed to allow the operator to observe the scanning process and to interact with it via a graphics tablet. Its precision and dynamic range are both considerably better than those which are available with television camera scanners. View full abstract»

  • Separation of Interleaved Nerve Spike Trains in a Noisy Channel

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):470 - 472
    Cited by:  Papers (3)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (1713 KB)

    A system is described which allows nerve impulse signals to be enhanced by removing noise from the interspike intervals without distorting the spike waveforms. It allows interleaved spike trains to be separated under conditions of poor signal-to-noise ratio when this would normally have been impossible. View full abstract»

  • Microcomputer Editing of M-Mode Echocardiograms for Semi-Automatic Analysis

    Publication Year: 1980, Page(s):472 - 473

    A microcomputer system of modest proportions may be used with long M-mode echocardiograph records stored on video tape to generate abridged echocardiograms showing only those segments satisfying appropriate selection criteria. By storing signals rather than displays, this technique permits considerable flexibility in selection methods and display formatting. View full abstract»

  • Theoretical Analysis of Error During Signal Averaging for Detection of Eis-Bundle Activity

    Cited by:  Papers (1)
    Request permission for commercial reuse | Click to expandAbstract |PDF file iconPDF (648 KB)

    A theoretical study has been carried out to understand better the errors due to: 1) periodic noise, 2) detection of trigger, and 3) quantization error during coherent signal averaging. Our problem of interest is the noninvasive detection of His-bundle activity, but the study is valid for other similar problems. View full abstract»

    A direct contact microwave applicator, constructed of dielectric-loaded J-band waveguide, was designed for local irradiation of the rat head with 2450 MHz CW microwaves. A stereotaxic method was used to achieve precise and reproducible orientation of the Applicator with the animal's head. Calorimetric measurements of specific bsorption rate, watts/kg, for the whole head indicated that approximatel... View full abstract»

    A model of arterial hemodynamics has been developed which encompasses both windkessel and pulse propagation effects and is intended to be valid over a wide range of physiological stresses including hemorrhage. Initial exploratory results suggest that the model has considerable potential for application to the hemodynamic manipulation of research animals and to clinical monitoring. View full abstract»
