This paper presents a numerical modeling technique for dynamically modeling a human hand. We use a strand-based method of modeling the muscles. Our technique represents a compromise between capturing the full dynamics of the tissue mechanics and the need for computationally efficient representations for control design and multiple simulations appropriate(More)

Stated preference(More)
Parenting practices for teen drivers with ADHD were observed via a video monitor installed in vehicles. All teens had recently completed a driver education course and were in the driving permit stage of a graduated driver-licensing program. Parent behaviors were coded during drives when teens were driving safely and during drives when teens engaged in risky(More)
In keeping with a long-standing tradition, Yale Medical and Physician Associate students gather at a ceremony each year after the completion of the anatomy course. The ceremony is a chance to reflect and to give thanks. It gives students the opportunity to articulate their gratitude to the selfless individuals who donated their bodies for the benefit of(More)
