The present work evaluated the reproducibility and variance of the cerebral blood flow (CBF) response to natural whisker stimulation in the barrel cortex of awake behaving mice. The animal was placed on an air float ball that allowed the animal to walk, while the head of the animal was fixed in a custom-made stereotactic apparatus. Dynamic CBF changes in(More)
We recorded visual neurons with the Elgiloy microelectrode in the frontal eye field of the alert monkey. After determining their visual receptive field, saccadic eye movements were induced by applying electric pulses at the recording site through the same electrode. The saccades were generally induced so as to bring the gaze angle to a part within the(More)
PURPOSE Virtual reality has recently been highlighted as a promising medium for visual presentation and entertainment. A novel apparatus for testing binocular visual function using a hemispherical visual display system, 'CyberDome', has been developed and tested. METHODS Subjects comprised 40 volunteers (mean age, 21.63 years) with corrected visual acuity(More)
This paper describes the effect of drug viscosity on the performance of gas powered liquid jet injectors. The analysis is accomplished utilizing a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) model that obtains the stagnation pressure at the nozzle outlet. The technique is based on previous work used to predict gas power driven injector piston velocity with time. The(More)
