OBJECTIVE To explore the effects of acupuncture at HT7 on different cerebral regions in a rat model of Alzheimer's disease (AD) with the application of (18)F-2-fluoro-deoxy-D-glucose positron emission tomography (FDG-PET). METHODS Sixty Wistar rats were included after undergoing a Y-maze electric sensitivity test. Ten rats were used as a healthy control(More)
The purpose of this study was to determine the long-time and transient characteristics of the moment generated by external (ER) and internal (IR) rotation of the calcaneus with respect to the tibia. Two human cadaver legs were disarticulated at the knee joint while maintaining the connective tissue between the tibia and fibula. An axial rotation of 21° was(More)
OBJECTIVE This study was designed to detect the brain glucose metabolism in rat models of Alzheimer's disease (AD) by the application of (18)F-2-fluoro-deoxy-d-glucose positron emission tomography ((18)F-FDG-PET) and to provide new insights for the early detection of AD. METHODS Forty Wistar rats were randomly divided into 2 groups. Fifteen sham-operated(More)
Ligament sprains account for a majority of injuries to the foot and ankle complex, but ligament properties have not been understood well due to the difficulties in replicating the complex geometry, in situ stress state, and non-uniformity of the strain. For a full investigation of the injury mechanism, it is essential to build up a foot and ankle model(More)
OBJECTIVE Occupants with extreme body size and shape, such as the small female or the obese, were reported to sustain high risk of injury in motor vehicle crashes (MVCs). Dimensional scaling approaches are widely used in injury biomechanics research based on the assumption of geometrical similarity. However, its application scope has not been quantified(More)
OBJECTIVE The objective of this study was to discuss the influence of the pre-impact posture to the response of a finite element human body model (HBM) in frontal impacts. METHODS This study uses previously published cadaveric tests (PMHS), which measured six realistic pre-impact postures. Seven postured models were created from the THUMS occupant model(More)
