Advances in Biological and Medical Physics, Volume 14 focuses on the application of physics to biology and medicine. The topics covered in this book include mechanical, biochemical, and architectural features of surgical repair; structure of normal and pathologic erythrocytes; and cytology automation. The analysis of reported physiologic effects of microwave radiation; spectroscopic methods in biology, with application to neurophysiology; and transmission of pictorial information through the skin are also deliberated in this text. This compilation likewise discusses the apparatus for tactile image projection, cutaneous stimulation, and neural factors. This publication is a good reference for students and individuals researching on biological and medical physics.
