    A newly developed method for measurement of intraocular and other physiological pressures consists of a novel displacement transducer contained in a distensible pillbox small enough (3 to 60 ¿l) to be implanted in the eye of a small laboratory animal. Nothing pierces or even touches the globe. This passive resonant transensor absorbs energy from an oscillating detector coil outside of the animal ... View full abstract»

  • The Detection of Cortical Spike Activity at the Human Scalp

    Spike activity has a much wider energy spectrum than does postsynaptic activity. Under the assumption that the frequency spectrum of spike activity ranges from dc to 1000 Hz, the prediction was made that high-frequency electrical activity could be modulated by sensory stimulation and might well be detectable at the human scalp. This prediction was borne out in experiments that were successful in d... View full abstract»

    This paper describes research on the application of a newly developed pattern-recognition technique called the polynomial discriminant method (PDM) [1] to the diagnosis of heart disease as evidenced in the vectorcardiogram (an orthogonalized form of electrocardiogram). View full abstract»

    A new kind of cardiac pacemaker for direct heart stimulation in cases of intermittent or variable heart block is presented. The pacemaker is capable of providing stimuli either synchronously with ventricular depolarization or at a fixed rate when natural pacing fails. Thus any competition between artificial and physiological rhythm is avoided, while allowing the exploitation, from the hemodynamic ... View full abstract»

  • Histologic Changes in Continuous, Long-Term Electrical Stimulation of a Peripheral Nerve

    The chronic stimulation of peripheral nerves has, in the past, usually been of an intermittent or relatively short-term nature. Histologic changes which have taken place have been attributed to the trauma caused by mechanical factors and/or the effects of electrical charges. Investigators, speculating on the effects of electro-stimulation, have designed electrodes specifically to minimize tissue d... View full abstract»

    A mathematical model for the behavior of passive iron in concentrated nitric acid, based on the electrochemical mechanism, is proposed. The model is capable of explaining several phenomena including threshold for activation, monostable property, periodic activation, propagation of activation and threshold for propagation. Furthermore, the mathematical model shows that the electrochemical active li... View full abstract»

  • On a Mathematical Theory of Decompression

    A theory is presented on the decompression procedure required after diving and on the accumulation of gases in the blood and in tissues during a dive. It is postulated that the decompression procedure must be such that at no time the partial pressure of the dissolved gases exceeds the external pressure. It is shown that the partial pressure of dissolved nitrogen is a weighted average of the extern... View full abstract»

    A method for tissue stimulation is described. It A consists of the energizing of subcutaneously implanted solar cells by means of an extra-corporal light source which provides intermittent illumination. Wave lengths of light passing through the skin are compatible with the spectral response of the solar cells, thus enabling relatively good transmission efficiency. In the present work, we describe ... View full abstract»

    For the above-named work (ibid., vol. BME-13, pp. 76-87, April 1966) the magnitude of the current 2I should be replaced with I for the extreme left image in Fig. 2. In addition the multiplying factor 2 should be removed from the secoind term in the electric field equationis (6) and (7). The contribution to the total field by these terms is sufficiently small that the computer results remain valid. View full abstract»
