The methods of statistical physics have been applied to the analysis of cell movement. Human leukocytes (granulocytes) were observed using time-lapse photography. The center of gravity of a cell, variations of cell shape, and cell orientation were investigated. This analytical description leads to a better understanding of cell movement. Stationary motion of a cell is described by the anisotropy of the cell shape. The cell displacement can be characterized by three different types of movement… CONTINUE READING
