Complete feeding sequences (bite to terminal swallow) were recorded in 11 individuals (Class I occlusions) feeding on apple, banana and biscuit (hard cookie) to establish whether jaw movements characteristic of the stage I transport, chewing, stage II transport and swallowing processes found in non-human mammals could be identified in man. All participants(More)
Ten-week-old male Sprague-Dawley rats were injected i.p. with cadmium chloride solution in a single dose of 0 or 1.0 mg/kg BW. At 4, 24, 48, and 72 h after injection, testes of the animals were collected, detunicated, and fixed in 10% formalin. Individual seminiferous tubules were isolated and the stages of the cycle of the seminiferous epithelium were(More)
This paper describes a series of experiments that tested the ability of the electrical resistivity tomography (ERT) method to locate correctly wet and dry fractures in a meso-scale model. The goal was to develop a method of monitoring the flow of water through a fractured rock matrix. The model was a four by six array of limestone blocks equipped with 28(More)
A combination of cryomicrotomy and transmission Fourier transform infrared (FTIR) microscopy was used to investigate chemical changes in unstrained sheets of Pellethane 2363-80A, Tecoflex EG80A and Biomer caused by biodegradation (18 month subcutaneous ovine implant). Cryomicrotomy was used to obtain thin sections (ca. 2.5 microm) from the surface into the(More)
The purpose of this study was to examine the degree to which changes in muscular activity modify tactile perceptual asymmetries. In two experiments subjects were presented with a series of pairs of random shapes to the fingers of each hand. Their task was to detect the occurrence of a previously learnt target shape. Pressing on to the shape was the only(More)
