VOLUME CONDUCTED CURRENTS AND POTENTIALS FROM EXCITABLE CELLS OF CYLINDRICAL GEOMETRY (NERVE FIBERS, SKELETAL MUSCLE)
The dissertation deals with the evaluation of currents and potentials from a variety of excitable cells of cylindrical geometry. Specifically, the cells considered are the unmyelinated and myelinated nerve fibers and the ...
AN INVESTIGATION OF ENZYME-ASSISTED VITRECTOMY
Surgical vitreous removal (vitrectomy) is increasingly advocated to diminish the undesired consequences of retinal damage, which frequently arises from disease or injury to the vitreous. Current surgical techniques for ...
VISUALIZATION AND ANALYSIS OF MURAL THROMBOGENESIS (PLATELET ADHESION, COLLAGEN, POLYURETHANE, DIGITAL IMAGE PROCESSING)
Epi-fluorescence video microscopy, digital image processing, and photodiode photometry were used to visualize and analyze mural thrombogenesis on collagen coated glass, polyurethane, and nylon surfaces in contact with ...
EFFECTS OF SHEAR STRESS ON PLATELET - POLYMORPHONUCLEAR LEUKOCYTE INTERACTIONS (LTB(4), AGGREGATION)
The effects of shear stress on platelet - polymorphonuclear leukocyte (PMNL) interactions were studied to ascertain whether mechanical trauma induces PMNL aggregation or degranulation. PMNL suspensions were exposed to shear ...
RHEOLOGICAL STUDIES IN SICKLE CELL DISEASE (RED BLOOD, ENDOTHELIAL, ADHERENCE)
The abnormal adherence of sickle erythrocytes to endothelial cells (EC) has been hypothesized to play a role in the initiation of vaso-occlusion in sickle cell anemia. Erythrocyte/endothelial cell interactions were studied ...
