    The magnetization process of ferrimagnetic particles in the lung takes place when an external magnetic field is applied to the lung; the particles both become magnetized and rotate toward alignment with the applied field. The purpose here is to consolidate previous and new measurements of this process, for Fe3O4 particles in the human lung, and to interpret the measurements. The particular quantit...

    After ferrimagnetic particles in the lung have been magnetized and aligned by an external magnetic field which is then removed, they undergo relaxation. In this process the remanent magnetic field at the chest produced by the aligned particles decreases in time, typically by a factor of five in the first hour; this is the result of misalignments of the particles caused by random, physiological imp...

    This paper presents a new algorithm for optimal adaptation of the signal templates of a matched filter bank used in the detection of the motor unit action potential waveforms (abbreviated as MUAP's) in an electromyogram (EMG). It is of interest, for clinical diagnosis and therapy, to detect as many MUAP's as possible in a single measurement, and to determine for each motor unit the repetition. rat... View full abstract»

    The electrical and dielectric properties of wet, bovine, compact bone were determined in three orthogonal planes, using a differential technique, for a frequency range of 1 kHz-l MHz. For axial specimens, at 10 kHz, the specific resistance, specific capacitance, and specific impedance were 16.6 k¿/cm, 60.9 pF. cm-1 and 16.59/¿3.65°k¿·cm, respectively. Similarly, the dielectric properties, nam... View full abstract»

    Quantitative measurements of horizontal head rotation were obtained from normal human subjects intending to make "time optimal" trajectories between targets. By mounting large, lightweight vanes on the head, viscous damping B, up to 15 times normal could be added to the usual mechanical load of the head. View full abstract»

    The use of pole-zero method for the analysis of smooth muscle network parameters like the myoplasmic resistance, the junctional resistance, and the junctional capacitance is described. The method determines the pole and zero of the equivalent network describing the smooth muscle cells, using the data set obtained from the impedance versus frequency values for tissue strips. The pole-zero method is... View full abstract»

    The Polyacrylamide gel is suggested as a new and convenient material for simulating the electrical behavior of biological tissues in experimental studies of heat deposition by electromagnetic means. The advantages of Polyacrylamide are: 1) excellent optical transparency, 2) solid elastic, 3) easily shaped into complex forms, 4) readily prepared with a complete range of highly reproducible values o...
