Calibration of an electronic counter and pulse height analyzer for plotting erythrocyte volume spectra by Jess M McKenzie( )

1 edition published in 1963 in English and held by 211 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A simple technique is presented for calibrating an electronic system used in the plotting of erythrocyte volume spectra. The calibration factors, once obtained, apparently remain applicable for some time. Precise estimates of calibration factors appear to be limited by errors in measuring hematocrit and/or mean channel. For consistent determination of the latter, the selection of a sufficiently low aperture current appears to be of importance. (Author)

Human factors aspects of lightplane safety by R. G Pearson( Book )

3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper attempts to relate aircraft accident investigation and aeromedical research efforts for the purpose of clarifying research needs. Such efforts ultimately can lead to a reduction in lightplane accidents, injuries, and fatalities. Recent statistical studies of lightplane crash injuries are summarized, and contributions that human biologists, physical anthropologists, and design engineers can make toward reducing or preventing injury in future crashes are discussed. Programs of biomedical and human engineering research as they relate to lightplane safety are described. Contributions that physicians can make to this program are outlined. (Author)
Determination of centers of gravity of man by John J Swearingen( Book )

4 editions published in 1962 in English and held by 207 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Data are presented concerning the location of the center of gravity of the adult male in various body positions and the ability to shift the c.g. voluntarily with various body motions. Maximum possible shifts of the c.g. from that of an erect standing posture were found to be 11 1/2 inches toward the head, 10 inches toward the feet, 8 inches anteriorly, 4 1/2 inches posteriorly and 4 1/2 inches laterally."--Abstract

Human survivability of extreme impacts in free-fall by Richard G Snyder( Book )

3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 206 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Human deceleration tolerances beyond the limits imposed by voluntary experimental methods were studied by means of intensive case histories of 137 individuals who have survived extremely abrupt impacts in accidental, suicidal, and homicidal free-falls. Fall distances ranged up to 275' and calculated velocities up to 116 ft/sec (79 mph). Physical and biological data are presented on both sexes with an age range of 1 1/2 to 91 years, and with impacts occurring in all body axis orientations. A detailed analysis of factors found to affect survivability in free-fall impacts is made. These cases, out of some 12,000 free-falls collected in the past two years, demonstrate that humans have survived impact forces considerably greater than those previously believed tolerable."--Abstract

Primary, secondary, and caloric nystagmus of the cat following habituation to rotation by William Edward Collins( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Ten cats were exposed to a series of abovethreshold accelerations and sub-threshold deceleration. Unilateral caloric irrigations, provoking nystagmus in the same direction as the above-threshold rotational stimuli preceded and followed the set of accelerations. A marked adaptation of nystagmus, characterized by specific changes in early trials, resulted from repeated rotation. Although neither duration nor total slow-phase eye displacement to caloric stimulation was affected, the intervening rotational experience produced some reduction in the frequency of the nystagmic beats. Two factors were proposed in explanation for the minimal transfer of adaptation from the rotational to the caloric situation. Secondary nystagmus activity was also examined and appeared closely related to preceding primary reactions. The data indicate that clinical (caloric) responses to vestibular stimulation may not give an accurate indication of a subject's state of adaptation to practiced levels of angular accelaration. Such findings provide cautions in the establishment of appropriate testing techniques for the analysis of vestibular function in air-or spacevehicle crew members. (Author)

The visual perception of spatial extent by Walter C Gogel( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 205 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was concerned with the manner in which perceived depth and perceived frontoparallel size varied with physical distance and hence with each other. An equation expressing the relation between perceived frontoparallel size and physical depth was developed and applied to frontoparallel size judgments determined with four observers under two viewing conditions. Using the same equation and an expression of the size-distance invariance hypothesis, an additional equation was developed which related perceived and physical depth. The additional equation, when applied to judgments of perceived depth from the same observers under the same viewing conditions, produced results not in agreement with those expected from the sizedistance invariance hypothesis. This is interpreted as evidence against the validity of the size-distance invariance hypothesis in its usual form. The results from the apparent depth judgments also were applied to the problem of the nonveridicality of the perceptual bisection of depth intervals. (Author)

Effects of some tranquilizing, analeptic and vasodilating drugs on physical work capacity and orthostatic tolerance by R. V Ganslen( Book )

3 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The effects of one tranquilizing and two analeptic drugs on the physical working capacity and on cardiovascular responses to postural changes were investigated. A definite increase in work capacity was observed after ingestion of a combined caffeine-metrazol preparation, apparently resulting from an increased capacity for cardiac output and maximum oxygen intake. Recordil, a relatively new Italian drug and a very potent dilator of coronary arteries, also improved work capacity but caused a tendency for orthostatic syncope probably due to its generally vasodilating effects. The blood pressure depression observed with Equanil (from the meprobamate group) during rest, exercise and tilting, especially with larger doses, raises the question about the safety of people engaged in the operation of aircraft or motor vehicles when 'sedated' by this drug. Serious incidents and fatal accidents may be precipitated by the emotional indifference to suddenly arising problems or as a consequency of delayed circulatory responses during flight maneuvers.

A central factor in pure tone auditory fatigue by Joel S Wernick( Book )

2 editions published in 1963 in English and held by 204 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A long accumulation of psychophysical and physiological evidence indicates that auditory fatigue has its locus of effect in the cochlea; transfer studies with negative or questionable results, and studies of cochlear chemistry and potentials with positive results all lead to the same conclusion. However, Galambos's reports of inhibition through efferent stimulation taken together with his findings of changes in cochlear potentials corresponding to differences in 'attentiveness' provide a basis for testing the existence of a central factor operative in auditory fatigue. The present study was designed to evaluate the possibility that a listener's level of mental activity constitutes an adequate central factor. Subjects were presented with a 4000 cps, 40 dB SL or 90 dB SL tone for 3 minutes under conditions of (a) a mental task or (b) reverie. Pre- and post-fatigue thresholds were measured with a switched (0.2 sec on, 0.2 sec off) tone. For low level (40 dB) fatigue the frequency of the test tone was 4000 cps and for high level (90 dB) fatigue, 5656 cps. Subjects consistently showed greater temporary threshold shift and longer recovery time when the fatiguing tone was presented in the mental task condition. Results thus indicate a central factor in pure tone auditory fatigue. It is suggested that the degree of effect of a fatiguing tone is a function of the listener's degree of mental activity during stimulation. (Author)
