    The objective of the research was to develop a transducer to measure arterial blood pressure. It was required that the transducer provide a continuous measure of blood pressure, that it not encumber the subject and that it not require cannulation. Two basic techniques were investigated both analytically and experimentally. First, an indirect measurement of blood pressure based on arterial deflecti... View full abstract»

    With the subject exposed to an alternating magnetic field, eye position may be accurately recorded from the voltage generated in a coil of wire embedded in a scleral contact lens worn by the subject. Using two magnetic fields in quadrature phase and two coils on the lens, one may measure horizontal, vertical and torsional eye movements simultaneously. The instrument described has an accuracy and l... View full abstract»

    The paper reviews the application of image theory to the problem of a current dipole in a homogeneous conducting medium where the boundary is a plane or circular cylinder, and shows how the technique applies to the case of a radial dipole in a spherical volume. The use of images for arbitrary shaped volumes is then considered. A rough criterion is developed and the approximation checked for the ca... View full abstract»

    The term biological clock is used to designate the phenomenon, displayed by organisms, of pacing activity in a cyclic manner related to environment. Many nocturnal animals, for example, are capable of entraining the onset of their activity with the light-to-dark transition in a periodic light-dark regime in which the period or ratio of light to darkness varies widely. This paper presents the devel... View full abstract»

    The Helmholtz reciprocity theorem for currents in an inhomogeneous conducting media is put into a useful form for the solution of problems such as arise in electrocardiography. Several examples are considered which lead to known results and which illustrate the application of the method. View full abstract»

    A simple, inexpensive electro-optical instrument is described, by which the osmotic fragility curve of red blood cells, as obtained by gradually decreasing the salt concentration of the medium surrounding the cells, can be automatically recorded. Either the direct sigmoid curve or the derivative curve can be recorded. View full abstract»

    A new approach to analog simulation and study of the neuron is proposed. This approach is based on recent physiological evidence which indicates that the individual nerve cell is functionally much more complex than the classical view of a synaptic region coupled directly to a spike or impulse-generating region. At least two different intermediate regions have been found. One provides a reliable lo... View full abstract»
