Thirty-one patients with intention tremor due to a variety of causes were subjected to measurements of their intention tremor. The effect of varying amounts of lead weights on the amount of limb tremor recorded was noted. It is concluded that simple methods of treatment may be of benefit, and that an objective method of measuring intention tremor overcomes(More)
The derived proportions of the human hand may provide supportive buttressing that protects the hand from injury when striking with a fist. Flexion of digits 2-5 results in buttressing of the pads of the distal phalanges against the central palm and the palmar pads of the proximal phalanges. Additionally, adduction of the thenar eminence to abut the dorsal(More)
When humans fight hand-to-hand the face is usually the primary target and the bones that suffer the highest rates of fracture are the parts of the skull that exhibit the greatest increase in robusticity during the evolution of basal hominins. These bones are also the most sexually dimorphic parts of the skull in both australopiths and humans. In this(More)
Vernier acuity was measured at 40 weeks post term in 18 infants born with symmetric intrauterine growth retardation (IUGR) and 32 normal (N) infants. Grating acuity was also measured in 12 IUGR and 26 N infants. The mean vernier detection threshold (V.min) was 0.4 octaves higher in the IUGR than in the N infants (P less than 0.04). The mean grating(More)
A method of measuring and analysing intention tremor using a linear accelerometer is described. Reasons are given for measuring this particular parameter of the tremor, for using this specific energy conversion device, and for employing the particular form of analysis. A comparison of the numerical values obtained for the amount of tremor activity, compared(More)
OBJECTIVES To assess the utility of an extratympanic intrameatal electrode for intraoperative monitoring during acoustic neuroma and other cerebellopontine angle tumour surgery and to define the neurophysiological and surgical factors which influence hearing preservation. METHODS Twenty two patients, 18 with acoustic neuromas and four with other(More)
Objectives—To assess the utility of an extratympanic intrameatal electrode for intraoperative monitoring during acoustic neuroma and other cerebellopontine angle tumour surgery and to define the neuro-physiological and surgical factors which influence hearing preservation. Methods—Twenty two patients, 18 with acoustic neuromas and four with other(More)
Visual evoked potentials to flash (FVEP) were recorded in 23 symmetrically growth retarded newborns of between 32 and 39 weeks gestational age and 41 normally grown controls. At 9 months post term FVEP recordings were repeated in 14 of the growth retarded and 26 of the control infants. The development of two long latency negative components of the wave form(More)
A multiple regression technique was used to describe the wave form of the flash evoked potential (VEP) in 64 neonates born between 28 and 39 weeks of gestation. The successive appearance of new features in the VEP with increasing gestational age at birth was used to define 5 components, of which specimens were obtained by averaging VEPs of 18 selected(More)
