A mathematical model for studying the passive kinematics of total knee prostheses can be useful in computer-aided planning and guidance of total joint replacement. If the insertion location and neutral length of knee ligaments is known, the passive kinematics of the knee can be calculated by minimizing the strain energy stored in the ligaments at any(More)
In a pretest, three phases of recovery from a standard physical exercise were determined. In Phase 1, subjects experienced high levels of physiological excitation and recognized that their arousal was due to exercise. In Phase 2, subjects maintained substantial excitatory residues from the exercise but felt that their arousal had returned to base level. In(More)
The present work investigated possible temporal constraints on the posthypnotic word blindness suggestion effect. In a completely within-subjects and counterbalanced design 19 highly suggestible individuals performed the Stroop task both with and without a posthyp-notic suggestion that they would be unable to read the word dimension of the Stroop stimulus,(More)
A stylized fact of the real estate market is that sales commission rates are extremely rigid. Earlier research has explained this rigidity by postulating either collusive behavior or barriers to entry. This paper shows that downward rigidity in rates is consistent with both free entry and non-cooperative agent behavior. When agent effort is unobservable,(More)
A mathematical model for studying the passive kinematics of condylar-type total knee prostheses can be useful in planning and performing total joint replacement. If the insertion location and neutral length of knee ligaments is known, the passive kinematics of the knee can be calculated by minimizing the strain energy stored in the ligaments in any angular(More)
Oddity performance requires relational discriminative responding, which typically is difficult to establish in children with MAs below five. In Experiment 1, a combination intrasubject reversal and multiple baseline across subjects design was used to establish the internal validity of a bimodal intervention in establishing generalized oddity performance.(More)
Four of 8 low-functioning, developmentally delayed children initially failed to demonstrate oddity responding under conditions in which ostensibly similar children did show oddity responding (e.g., Soraci et al., 1987). In the context of a multiple baseline across-subjects design, each of the 4 previously unsuccessful children demonstrated statistically(More)
