The human body is a medium which consists of various tissues such as skin, fat, muscle and bone. Each of the tissues has their own biomechanical properties. We have measured biomechanical impedances by applying a random vibration (30-1000 Hz) to the layered model of human tissues to study the occurring mechanism of impedances measured at the skin surface.(More)
A study of the ontogeny of the lateral line system in leptocephali of the Japanese eel Anguilla japonica reveals the existence of three morphologically different types of lateral line organs. Type I is a novel sensory organ with hair cells bearing a single kinocilium, lacking stereocilia, distributed mainly on the head of larvae, and morphologically(More)
A review was made of experiments on humans in which air trapping by glottis closure during three-dimensional movements were examined in four subjects including former Olympic gymnasts. In brachiation and horizontal bar exercises, the behaviour of the larynx was monitored with a fiberoptic endoscope, and EMG-data were recorded from shoulder muscles. The(More)
We developed a TMJ viscoelasticity analyzer for non-invasive evaluation of the soft tissues of the TMJ region. We used this device to measure the viscoelastic parameters, viscosity (c), elasticity (k) and mass (m), of the TMJ region for two volunteers. Experiments were performed to determine the optimum measurement conditions for the preload magnitude, head(More)
