Sex and race variation of the occipital bone have been previously investigated, but particular examination of the effect of age and ancestry on sexual dimorphism has not been addressed. This paper examines morphological variation associated with sex and ancestry in the condylar region of the occipital bone and the effect of age and ancestry on the(More)
Twenty-nine skeletons from the first cemetery in New Orleans provide significant new information about urban slavery in America. Dating as early as 1720 and used perhaps as late as 1810, the cemetery provided an identifiable sample of two whites, 13 blacks, one individual of possible Indian-white ancestry, and two possibly mulatto individuals. Numerous(More)
The most accurate and precise methods for the assessment of age and stature often require knowledge of sex. Thus, being able to correctly identify sex from skeletal remains is critical in the forensic context. The presence of the os coxae or skull can never be guaranteed, making the development of reliable methods of sex estimation using other skeletal(More)
The shape of the temporal bone of the adult human cranium, specifically the mastoid region, is documented widely in past literature as a measure of sexual dimorphism within and among human populations. Yet, past research focus primarily on the qualitative assessment of the size of the mastoid region as it varies between males and females. This study(More)
This paper illustrates how the generalized age changes of the scapula reported by Graves (1921, 1922, 1939) are not universally applicable across sex or ancestral groups, and should therefore be reexamined. Previous work on the human scapula has shown this bone to be a dynamic skeletal element, which changes morphologically and metrically with advancing(More)
Summary form only given. This study was focused on the development of a non-invasive mobile skin sensor for measuring intracranial pressure (ICP). Current techniques are limited to surgical implantations or methods that require highly specialized equipment and training. Additionally, surgical implantations carry risk of infection. To overcome these(More)
