In diagnosing a child with fetal alcohol syndrome (FAS), anthropometric measurements of the face are conventionally performed by highly trained dysmorphologists using a hand-held ruler. This renders the screening of large populations of children for the facial features characteristic of FAS very time-consuming and costly. This study proposes a new,(More)
Both the mandibular condyle and the glenoid fossa remodel in response to changes in the dentition during life, although the precise relationship between teeth and joint is not clear. This study was undertaken to ascertain changes, if any, occurring in the glenoid fossae in skeletons with much tooth wear. In a collection of skulls from an excavation site on(More)
Emotional inhibition in recollection of specific autobiographical memories (Conway & Pleydell-Pearce, 2000) is investigated in two experiments. Less complete emotional inhibition was hypothesised to correspond to a reduced sense of psychological closure. Emotional inhibition was identified by comparing the effect of emotion words relative to lifetime period(More)
A combination of pancreatic insufficiency and inadequate caloric intake may produce essential fatty acids (EFA) deficiency in patients with cystic fibrosis. Seventy-five percent of the adolescents and young adults with poor weight gain in our clinic were EFA-deficient by total plasma linoleic acid criteria. Twenty of these patients were placed on an oral(More)
Resorption of the residual alveolar ridge calls for regular attention to the fitting surface of a denture. In the case of distal extension partial dentures, changes which occur in less than a year may require attention. These changes are apparent, though difficult to measure using radiographic techniques. Stereophotogrammetry is a means of recording and(More)
Preference for a particular chewing side may be influenced by several factors, one of which could be the functional contact area on each side of the dentition. In this study, interocclusal wax records were made for each of the 30 subjects. A digital image of the transilluminated wax record was analysed to group 'grey' values into categories of wax(More)
Surveys have shown that many workers operate under conditions that require constrained standing. The aim of this study was to investigate postural adaptations in constrained standing to facilitate the development of design guidelines for standing workspaces. Standing postures were observed in six different workspaces that were designed using combinations of(More)
In this study the wear of mandibular acrylic resin teeth opposed by porcelain maxillary teeth arranged in a lingualized occlusal scheme over a period of 3 years was measured. Six edentulous subjects received complete dentures as above and with three baseline markers of amalgam. At yearly intervals casts were made of the mandibular occlusal surfaces,(More)
The resistance to wear of composite resins is an important feature of their suitability for use as posterior restorative materials. The in vivo clinical evaluation of new materials requires an accurate and reliable method of assessing tooth wear. The purpose of this study was too investigate the possibility of using a new stereometric measuring instrument(More)
