As the secretory source of vitamins, peptides and hormones for neurons, the choroid plexus (CP) epithelium critically provides substances for brain homeostasis. This distributive process of cerebrospinal fluid (CSF) volume transmission reaches many cellular targets in the CNS. In ageing and ageing-related dementias, the CP-CSF system is less able to(More)
A reproduction of the human masticatory system is presented here to evaluate mechanical properties of foods, relevant design elements of the simulator, and the overall practicality of the system. The model incorporates a cam-driven linkage system providing realistic motion of the mandible, with reaction forces measured by strain gages on two axes to record(More)
