    A model of the mammalian muscle spindle having three distinct parts is proposed. The three parts, which consist of a mechanical filter, a transducer, and an encoder, are closely related with their physiological counterparts. A study of the generator potentials for the primary and secondary endings of the spindle was performed by means of an analog computer simulation of the model. The afferent res... View full abstract»

    An important parameter in the design of countercurrent dialyzers is the permeability of the membrane which separates the blood and dialyzate. In this paper, methods of optimization theory are applied to specify membrane permeability along the length of a countercurrent dialyzer operating under quasi-static conditions. Two optimization problems are considered. In the first the performance functiona... View full abstract»

    During the past 15 years, many models have been developed for the pupillary light reflex system. Some of these models have been inadequately described while others have never been tested to determine their compliance or noncompliance with known experimental data. This paper reviews the major experimental and modeling advances that assisted in understanding the basic operation of the pupillary ligh... View full abstract»

    The operation of liquid ion exchanger microelectrodes that allows measurement of internal potassium and chloride activities in identifiable neurons has been described. A computer that solves the logarithmic equation necessary for computation of these activities has been constructed and tested successfully. The great value of the computer is that it permits continuous measurement of these activitie... View full abstract»

    Timers used for the generation of long sequences of pulses have employed serial counting techniques. A system of parallel counting chains, each capable of independent operation in a variety of modes and having programmable clock signals, can be used to generate long sequences of pulses and act as event counters or timedelay devices.

    Experimentation regarding various aspects of a technique for recording electrocardiographic potentials from unprepared skin, without the use of conventional paste, is described. Because of the relatively high skin-to-electrode impedances encountered without electrolytic paste, high input impedance amplifiers must be utilized for acquisition of the signal. In order to minimize susceptibility to ext... View full abstract»

    Digital preprocessors can ease the increasing data collection demands placed on real-time computers in patient monitoring. This paper describes a preprocessor that detects in real time an electrocardiogram QRS complex and computes the R-R interval. Detection is performed using multiple digital differentiation, which is encouraging as an ultrareliable means for locating the QRS. Inherent in the tec... View full abstract»
