The electric polarization patterns existing in the appendicular skeleton of the Amphibia, Reptilia, Aves and Mammalia, and the changes they undergo in the course of ontogenesis, have been made the object of detailed investigations. There are two distinct directions of electric polarization in the long bones of the appendicular skeleton: 1. One parallel and 2. one at right angles to the longitudinal bone axis, i. e. the course of the collagen fibrils. These are called “longitudinal polarization… CONTINUE READING
