The gracilis muscle model was used either as a denervated muscle in situ or as a transplanted flap in 273 rats to compare the trophic effects of muscle reinnervation and neurotization using sensory and motor nerves. The average gracilis muscle flap weighed 626 +/- 94 mg at the time of the initial procedure. Experimental muscles were examined 6 months(More)
A new electronic system has been developed to trace the location and movement of small animals in an open-field environment. The system, incorporated with a conventional touch panel position sensor (TPPS) and an IBM AT compatible computer, automtically digitizes and records the moving path of the animal. The detection principle of the TPPS is based on the(More)
Spurious eigensolutions in the boundary integral equation (BIE) or boundary element method (BEM) for doubly-connected domain problems, the eccentric and annular membranes , are studied analytically and numerically in this paper. For the mathematical analysis, we employ the null-field integral equation, the degenerate kernels and the Fourier series to prove(More)
