When amphibian papillar hair cells (APHCs) of the leopard frog, Rana pipiens pipiens, are osmotically challenged, they exhibit a characteristically asymmetric (rectifying) response: small decreases (5%, or less) in the extracellular solution's osmolarity do not significantly affect the cells' volume; larger decreases produce a relatively slow volume(More)
An abdominal aortic aneurysm is a pathological dilation of the abdominal aorta, which carries a high mortality rate if ruptured. The most commonly used surrogate marker of rupture risk is the maximal transverse diameter of the aneurysm. More recent studies suggest that wall stress from models of patient-specific aneurysm geometries extracted, for instance,(More)
