Data Acquisition and Processing in Biology and Medicine, Volume 5 presents the proceedings of the 1966 Rochester Conference. The book presents a model based on the visco-elastic behavior of the aorta and arterioles that can generate aortic pressure curves resembling real ones; and the computer-aided diagnosis. The text also includes papers on an electric analog for the uptake, distribution and excretion of inhalation anesthetics; the use of computer analysis of morphological pattern as an aid in taxonomic discrimination; and a simulation study of a hand controlled by myoelectric signals. Computer-aided differentiation of glycemic curves, as well as the use of Fourier waveform analysis to confirm the differentiability of preganglionic slow potentials into postganglionic slow potential waveforms are also encompassed.
