Transgenic mice genetically engineered to produce increased levels of growth hormones, accelerated somatic growth, and larger terminal sizes [Palmiter et al., 1982, 1983] offer an intriguing model with which to investigate the genetic and developmental control of skeletal proportions. In this study, form differences in the mandible between giant transgenic(More)
Improvements in data gathering technology have made it possible to quickly and accurately digitize large numbers of objects. The three dimensional coordinates of 44 homologous landmarks were obtained from a sample of 104 squirrel monkey (Saimiri sciureus) crania. After sorting by sex, the crania were assigned to one of four dental age groups. Two(More)
OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to assess the feasibility of utilizing three dimensional whole body laser surface scanning (3DS) to obtain specific anthropometric measurements to estimate percent body fat (BF). METHODS Percent BF estimates from 37 male volunteers, of age 18-62 yr, were determined by inputting manual anthropometric (MA) and 3DS(More)
The present study was undertaken to provide a quantitative description of craniofacial growth in Cebus apella in three dimensions. Landmarks from a cross-sectional sample of sexed and dentally aged crania were collected using a 3Space digitizer. Two methods of three-dimensional form analysis, euclidian distance matrix analysis (EDMA) and finite-element(More)
This paper explores approaches to automatically identify anthropometric landmarks based on their geometric appearance from a 3-D scan of the human head. We investigated the geometric features of most commonly used landmarks of the head/face and related them to invariant surface characteristics such as mean and Gaussian curvatures and other first or second(More)
In 1960 Adolph Schultz described several cases of plagiocephaly in a collection of mantled howler monkeys (Alouatta palliata) from the forests of Central America. Since then several more specimens have been described. These individuals make up one of the largest samples of nonhuman primates that are affected by craniosynostosis. In this study, we used(More)
With the exception of the work of Schultz (1960), cranial growth in Ateles is not well documented. This paper describes the results of a detailed quantitative study of cranial ontogeny in male and female Ateles geoffroyi. Using Euclidean Distance Matrix Analysis (EDMA), local areas of form change due to growth within spider monkey crania are identified. We(More)
