Few investigations have analysed the relations of breathing and pianists' movements. In past studies, however, coordination of breathing with repetitive movements were examined. The current experiment explored the coordinative relations of breathing with three different finger-movement markers (pitch, meter, and thumb passage) during the performance of… (More)
BACKGROUND Little is known of how the oxygen environment in the ovarian follicle affects oocyte and embryo development, but this has an important impact on the conditions used for in vitro maturation (IVM) of oocytes. We investigated the effect of varying oxygen concentrations during IVM on subsequent pre and post-implantation development. METHODS IVM of… (More)
Correction for 'X-Ray fluorescence imaging and other analyses identify selenium and GPX1 as important in female reproductive function' by M. J. Ceko et al., Metallomics, 2014, DOI: .
Detailed design of a prototype prosthetic limb based on biomimetic principles has been completed. This paper will update the progress that has been made toward the creation of a new, high-performance limb. The limb uses antagonistic actuators with low and variable stiffness to create dynamics and interaction properties similar to those of a healthy arm.… (More)
A new control system for elbow prostheses is proposed. The system would use myoelecuic activity (MEA) meastuements to modulate the execution of a maxirnally smooth, minimum jerk movement A prosthesis controller may extract information from MEA meastuements about both the intended movement, for example elbow flexion, and about the time course of the movement… (More)
