I. duPont Hospital for Children with diagnoses associated with sudden infant death syndrome were included in this(More)
The frog retinal response to light is obtained in the frequency domain. The response is obtained by means of a capillary-type electrode at the cornea. Sinusoidal stimuli are used. The very low frequency range (0.01 to 1 Hz.) is examined. With decreasing frequency, retinal gain increases and the response is more nearly sinusoidal. The increase in sensitivity(More)
Human voluntary horizontal eye-movements are studied prior and subsequent to the ingestion of alcohol. Such movements are important, especially during reading and driving. Infrared monitoring techniques were employed to record eye movements and eye-movement latency histograms were tabulated. Blood alcohol levels were continually monitored. Alcohol increases(More)
It is generally agreed that the ingestion of ethyl alcohol dulls the physiological and mental responses of the human body, that is, alcohol affects the central nervous system and the peripheral nervous system of the body (2). This diminution of responses is caused by alcohol’s capacity to impair the impulse conduction and trans­ mission in excitable cells(More)
This article, published in lieu of the customary feature, artifact, describes one of the earliest medical devices--a device to measure pulse rate. A close examination of the pulsilogium of Sanctorius of Padua (1561--1636) reveals it to be something more than the first measuring device in medical history; it is also the first man/machine system in medicine.(More)
