We show that cardiorhythm of a human can be synchronized by a sequence of sound and light pulses, either periodic or aperiodic. n:m phase locking is observed in both cases in about 90% of our experiments. The ratio of forcing frequency to the average frequency of response versus detuning exhibits a distinct plateau being in a good agreement with classical theory of synchronization. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    A model of click production in a dolphin is considered on the basis of analogy with a traveling-wave antenna focused in a given direction. Calculations show that signals deviating from the principal direction of radiation are distorted, so that the forepart of such a pulse is stretched in time...

    Abstract. This paper presents a new procedure specifically aimed at providing a dynamical detection of the oscillations occurring in long-term heart-rate (HR) tracings. The procedure is based on a time-variant state-space modelling of the fourth-order cumulants of the HR signal. The state-space...

    Sound production in reproductively active sheepshead minnows, Cyprinodon variegatus, is documented. Male sheepshead minnows produced acoustic signals in seven behavioral contexts including: patrolling the territory, chasing, hovering on the territory, courting, fighting, spawning, and during the...

    Abstract  Capability for identification of direction of movement of sound images (“upward” or “downward”) was studied in listeners of two age groups: 19–27 year old (11 subjects) and 55–73 year old (9 subjects). Various sound models of movement in the...

    His-bundle electrocardiogram micropotentials are usually obtained by serial-signal averaging, because no acceptable, satisfactory solution for beat-by-beat removal of power-line interference and electromyographic noise has been found. A method has been developed for surface beat-to-beat...

    We noticed that monitored tidal volumes often exceeded preset tidal volumes in patients with large cardiogenic oscillation. To investigate whether triggering modes affect this discrepancy, we simulated cardiogenic oscillation of 90 breaths/min in a lung model, which was ventilated with a Bird...
