The purpose of this study was to investigate the relationship between jaw-opening muscle activity and craniofacial morphology in a sample of 64 adults with skeletal Class I malocclusions. EMG recordings from the inferior head of the right lateral pterygoid and the anterior belly of the right digastric muscle were analyzed together with mandibular(More)

When we synthesize a realistic appearance of dust-covered object by CG, it is necessary to express a large number of fabric components of dust accurately with many short fibers, and as a result, this process is a time-consuming task. The dust amount prediction function suggested by Hsu [1995] proposed modeling and rendering techniques for dusty surfaces.(More)
A patient with obstructive sleep apnea has been treated by means of a mandibular repositioning appliance made of silicone rubber. The patient is a male and 54 years old with a slim body and complained a excessive daytime sleepiness and unsatisfied sleep. A lateral head plate revealed retruded mandible and narrow A-P diameter in the lower part of oropharynx.(More)
Malfunction and abnormal posture of the tongue has been thought to be one of etiological factors for skeletal open-bite at length. In this study, an adult female patient with anterior open-bite is reported, who has been treated by means of posterior maxillary osteotomy and has obtained a good occlusion and profile, which is stable throughout the retention(More)
Miniature surface electrodes were developed to examine the EMG activity of the tongue during various functions under normal physiological conditions with minimal fear and discomfort to human subjects. An outline of the electrodes, which consist of electrically high-conductive silver paste, small rubber caps, and fine wires, is introduced, and the(More)
Daily deaths of all causes in Tokyo residents from 1966 to 1972 were analyzed with relation to environmental conditions. As the analytical methods, daily deviation from 15-day moving average, simple correlation coefficients and stepwise regression procedure between daily deaths and environmental variables were employed. Seasonal variations of daily deaths,(More)
