R. MARKS Biology has develop into a 'numbers game'. some great benefits of with the ability to grade alterations in tissue, post effects to statistical research and properly checklist organic phenomena make dimension crucial. this can be as precise for a few of the disciplines in utilized biology because it is for the extra esoteric features ofthe topic. unfortunately, sk in biologists till lately had no longer seized the possibilities that the supply in their tissue of curiosity afforded and fell in the back of within the exploration of dimension strategies. most likely this led to half from the fallacious sentiment that 'to see is to know'. It additionally originated from the complexity ofthe pores and skin which. as a heavily interwoven blend oftissue varieties. makes exams technically tricky. even if, we're positive concerning the destiny. The foreign Society for Bioengineering and the outside was once shaped in Cardiff in ] uly 1979 based on the needs of the delegates who had attended the 1st foreign Symposium at the topic in Miami in 1976 and the second one in Cardiff three years later. This quantity is the court cases of the Cardiff assembly. We think that it demonstrates the courageous efforts and diversity of recent rules that characterise the reviews of scientists who realize the significance of mixing the actual sciences with dermis biology.

Example text

We assumed that a stretched skin would wrinkle less than a less stretched skin. We have built an instrument which applies a perpendicular pull to the skin. The height of the pull is measured by a standard weight. This measure quantifies skin slackness which in turn is assumed to represent the tendency of the skin to wrinkle. DESCRIPTION OF THE INSTRUMENT USED IN LEVAROMETRY The instrument we used is a modified form of the one described above. The following modifications were introduced. (1) The measuring probe head was made hollow, permitting the application of vacuum to 'glue' the skin to the probe.
