The Internet tests focused on evaluating the feasibility of providing an Internet response mode to addresses sampled for the American Community Survey. The main objective of the tests was to determine the best way to present the Internet mode in the ACS mailings to maximize self-response. This report summarizes the results of the second ACS Internet Test(More)
To determine if animals are capable of utilizing vestibular sensory input for spatial orientation, a six-arm radial maze with a rotating central turntable was constructed. Sprague-Dawley rats were trained on this apparatus by rotating them without visual, auditory, or olfactory cues. Animals were required to locate a reward (located in a constant position(More)
OBJECTIVES To evaluate in a 12 month longitudinal study changes in hip and ankle range of motion and hip muscle strength in young female novice ballet dancers. METHODS Fifty three of the original 77 (69%) female dancers aged 8-11 years and 40 of the original 49 (82%) controls returned for follow up measurements one year later. Supine right active hip(More)
Normal and fornix-lesioned rats were trained to find water in a version of a spatial discrimination task involving the use of a cross maze modified for interspersing rotational stimulation before the start of each trial. The central (cross) portion of the maze rested on a turntable and consisted of a covered start box opening into the intersection of the(More)
OBJECTIVES To compare the hip and ankle range of motion and hip muscle strength in 8-11 year old novice female ballet dancers and controls. METHODS Subjects were 77 dancers and 49 controls (mean (SD) age 9.6 (0.8) and 9.6 (0.7) years respectively). Supine right active hip external rotation (ER) and internal rotation (IR) were measured using an(More)

Over the years, depression of the malar eminence has been one of the most persistent complications of zygoma fractures, regardless of the fixation technique used. The use of a sublabial incision for direct visualization and alignment of the fracture lines at the infraorbital rim and lateral maxillary buttress is described. When coupled with single miniplate(More)
