A numerical model of the mandible, its articulating surfaces, and the forces exerted by the primary masticatory muscles has been developed for the purpose of investigating loading of the temporomandibular joint. Evidence is presented which shows that the temporomandibular joint. Evidence is presented which shows that the temporomandibular joint is a(More)

a r t i c l e i n f o The colouration of prawns is dependent upon the presence of carotenoid pigments (predominantly astaxanthin) and has a significant impact on their market value. In this study we observed that visual appearance of colour in black tiger prawns (Penaeus monodon), when assessed using a subjective commercial grading scale, did not always(More)
A multivariate pattern recognition technique has been developed, to distinguish the EEGs of patients with cerebral pathology from those of normal controls and to localize any abnormalities detected. Two methods of feature extraction have been used, power spectral density and slope descriptor analysis, together with various types of feature compression.(More)
The objective of this study was to analyze postnatal eminence development quantitatively, as a first step in defining the relationship between loading of the TMJ and eminence development. A sample of human osteological remains provided the temporal bones of forty-nine (49) individuals of ages between birth and twenty years. An angular measurement technique(More)
BACKGROUND Despite over 50 years of experience with adrenocorticotropic hormone (ACTH) as a treatment for acute exacerbations of multiple sclerosis, there have been no trials examining the options of the 2-3-week dosing regimen or intramuscular injection protocol used in the original trials. At our clinic, we performed a small, prospective, randomized pilot(More)
The objectives of the present study were to characterize the loading of the immature TMJ, and to develop a theoretical model to explain the relationship between joint loading and development of the eminence of the human TMJ. The osteological remains of forty individuals, ages ranging from birth to twenty years, were used to provide metric coordinates of the(More)
There is continuing debate on the optimal treatment for Grave's thyrotoxicosis with a resultant variation in clinical practice. The present study aimed to ascertain changes in practice in the treatment of Grave's thyrotoxicosis in Tayside, Scotland, over the past four decades. Methods. The "Scottish automated follow-up register" (SAFUR) was queried to(More)
Viviparity evolved in bacteria, plants, ˃141 vertebrate lineages (ichthyosaurs, lizards, fishes, mammals, and others), and in 11 of 44 insect orders. Live-birth cockroaches preserved with brood sac (3D recovered two times optically) included Diploptera vladimir, Diploptera savba, Diploptera gemini spp.n., D. sp.1–2, and Stegoblatta irmgardgroehni from Green(More)
Silent periods were evoked from the masseter muscles bilaterally in response to chin taps during a clench. Injection of 0.75 ml of 3% Mepivicaine posteromedial to each condyle led to a distribution of skin anaesthesia consistent with the distribution of the auriculotemporal nerve. Silent periods were evoked prior to and during anaesthesia in ten subjects.(More)
