We have quantitatively studied the space-time dynamics of mitotic chromosome compaction in cultured amphibian cells. After collecting digital phase-contrast images we have done digital image analysis to study spatial correlations in density. We find a characteristic distance at which the strongest correlations occur, which provides a quantitative measure of(More)
We report measurements of the dynamics of force relaxation in single mitotic chromosomes, following step strains applied with micropipettes of force constant approximately 1 nN/microm. The force relaxes exponentially after an elongation (l/l(0)) to less than 3x native length, with a relaxation time approximately 2 sec. This relaxation time corresponds to an(More)
Conventional functional magnetic resonance imaging using blood oxygenation level dependent contrast requires signal averaging and statistical methods to detect activation. Signal averaging implicitly assumes that brain activation in response to a stimulus is reproducible on the scale of the imaging voxel. This assumption is examined in the absence of(More)
