Acoustic damping of a cylindrical chamber with open and closed ends is analytically and numerically investigated. In the analysis, based on the analytic solution of resonant acoustic modes inside cylinder, the damping from the open end is calculated by a simple acoustic source modeling for velocity fluctuation. The effect of viscosity is also considered as(More)
The lingual papillae and their connective tissue cores (CTC) from Reeves' muntjac deers (herbivorous artiodactyla) were studied using light and scanning electron microscopy and then compared to those of other mammalian species. At the posterior portion of the tongue, the Reeves' muntjac has a lingual prominence on which large conical papillae are(More)
We observed the three-dimensional structures on the external surface and the connective tissue cores (CTCs) of the California sea lion (Zalophus californianus californianus), after exfoliation of the epithelium of the lingual papillae (filiform, fungiform, and vallate papillae), using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and conventional light microscopy.(More)
The morphological structure of the lingual papillae and their connective tissue cores (CTC) in a rabbit were studied using LM and SEM and were compared to that of other animal species. Externally, the filiform papillae distributed on the anterior surface of the dorsal tongue were short and conical with a round base and had a flat area on their anterior(More)
A common characteristic of horses, Rocky Mountain goats, and cattle is that they all have a well developed lingual prominence on the dorsal surface of the posterior area of the tongue. Foliate papillae were found in the horse studied but not in the goat or in cattle. The horse filiform papillae had a long and slender external form with a thin and slender(More)
Knowledge of clinical anatomy in the neck region is useful for the diagnosis of primary tumors and metastatic lymph nodes. Arteries and nerves in the neck region of forty Japanese cadavers (80 cases), 18 males (36 cases) and 22 females (44 sides) were studied by dissection. We obtained the following results. Reverse of the location of the external and(More)
The stereo structure of each lingual papilla of the koala has a similar structure to that of various other animal species: the koala has a lingual prominence (intermolar prominence) with larger filiform papillae. (A lingual prominence is a characteristic in herbivorous animals.) The external form and connective tissue core (CTC) of the filiform papillae of(More)
We observed the three-dimensional structures of the external surface and connective tissue cores CTCs, after exfoliation of the epithelium of the lingual papillae (filiform, fungiform, and foliate papillae) of the common hippopotamus (Hippopotamus amphibius amphibius) using scanning electron microscopy and conventional light microscopy. Following unique(More)
The lingual papillae and the connective tissue cores (CTC) of the American beaver were examined by light and scanning electron microscopy. The tongue of American beaver was about 9 cm in length, 3.5 cm in width, and has a lingual prominence. Four types of papillae (filiform, fungiform, vallate and foliate papillae) were observed. The filiform papillae can(More)
The pancreatic endocrine tissue of Fugu rubripes rubripes consists of numerous round principal islets (Brockmann bodies) of various sizes scattered around the gall-bladder. The endocrine cells are divided into A-, B-, D-, and Ff-cells. Each cell type was identified by comparing thick and thin sections in both light and electron microscopy. Aldehyde-fuchsin(More)
